    December 2016 Elementary Highlights

    The first-ever all-elementary tailgate was a success.  Their cuteness and cheers propelled the CHS football team to a big win. Thanks to the Burnley-Moran PTO for organizing the event. Second-graders across the division enjoyed their annual field trip to Monticello, filled with history, beauty, gardens, and even math.  Visiting Monticello’s “edible laboratory,” students guessed the weights of pumpkins, recorded weather, and tasted fennel. Thanks to a partnership with Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, students in the after-school CLASS program have new, fun options for staying on the move and healthy, as profiled by the Newsplex. As part of the new iSTEM program, third-grade engineers ...

    Elementary Highlights for September 2016

    In response to a suggestion from Burnley-Moran Elementary School, the Charlottesville Police Department is starting a “lunch with a cop” program in our elementary schools.  Police officers visit with students during lunch, answering questions, enjoying conversation, and building positive relationships. City Schoolyard Garden started its “Harvest of the Month” program in September with delicious local peaches. The monthly fresh and local snack is also connected to science- and garden-related lesson plans. Our elementary schools have proven that it’s never too early in the year for some arts and inspiration! Rwandan brothers Patrick and Pacifique Niyosenga visited schools to perform and share their story of overcoming challenges. Pacifique ...
