All Henrico Reads: Author Sy Montgomery to address students, public

Facebooktwitter
Book cover "Soul of an Octopus" by Sy Montgomery

Author Sy Montgomery’s “The Soul of an Octopus” is this year’s selection for All Henrico Reads. The book was a finalist for the National Book Award.

Reviewers have called author Sy Montgomery’s 2015 book about octopuses “fascinating,” “touching” and “astoundingly beautiful.” Montgomery’s “The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness” was selected as this year’s All Henrico Reads selection. The author will speak to HCPS students and the public April 5 at Glen Allen High School as part of the annual event.

At a morning event at the school, Montgomery will speak to students from across Henrico County. Her evening appearance is open to the general public and is free. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for sale after the evening talk and the author will be available to autograph them.

Scientists have only recently accepted the intelligence of dogs, birds and chimpanzees but now are watching octopuses solve problems – and are also trying to decipher the meaning of the animal’s color-changing techniques. Library Journal, in selecting her book as an Editor’s Spring Pick, cited Montgomery’s “joyful passion for these intelligent and fascinating creatures.” In the book – a National Book Award finalist – Montgomery chronicles the growing appreciation of this mollusk as she tells a unique love story. By turns funny, entertaining, touching and profound, “The Soul of an Octopus” reveals what octopuses can teach us about the meeting of two very different minds.

In researching articles, films and her 21 books for adults and children, nationally bestselling author Sy Montgomery has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Rwanda, hunted by a tiger in India and swum with piranhas, electric eels and pink dolphins in the Amazon. She lives in New Hampshire.

All Henrico Reads is an annual literary program designed to foster community discussion of a chosen book, while highlighting the importance of reading for all ages. It is sponsored by Henrico County Public Schools, Henrico County Public Library and the Friends of Henrico County Public Library.

Henrico Schools garners national honor for remaking its Code of Student Conduct, supports

Facebooktwitter

Micky Ogburn, Henrico School Board representative from the Three Chopt District, and Superintendent Pat Kinlaw accept a first-place Magna Award Saturday as part of their participation in the National School Boards Association conference.

Henrico County Public Schools has been recognized by the National School Boards Association for a sweeping overhaul of the school division’s approach to student supports. HCPS was one of five large U.S. school systems recognized with a first-place honor in the 2017 Magna Awards, presented Saturday in Denver at the organization’s annual conference. The awards recognize school divisions and leaders “for taking bold and innovative steps to improve the lives of students and their communities,” according to the group.

The award recognizes Henrico Schools’ efforts of the past several years, from re-examining its policies to implementing more support systems. After a two-year conversation with the community through public hearings and other feedback, HCPS adopted a revised Code of Student Conduct for the 2015-16 school year. The revised Code categorizes conduct violations more thoroughly and then prescribes a range of intervention options.

Besides the Code revision, the award recognized HCPS’ recent moves to increase behavioral support systems and interventions. The division’s Student Support and Disciplinary Review Office adopted an aggressively proactive role, adding staff members to focus on prevention, intervention and support. The school division has added school-based family advocates, along with school-based crisis resource teachers and behavioral instructional assistants. A pilot program also brought a full-time psychologist and a social worker to the Campus of Virginia Randolph, providing more in-school counseling. A resulting 58 percent drop in out-of-school suspensions has prompted an expansion to more schools.

Micky Ogburn, School Board representative from the Three Chopt District, and Superintendent Pat Kinlaw accepted the award as part of their participation in the conference.

Facebooktwitter

Melissa Halquist-Pruden, principal of Henrico County’s Glen Allen Elementary School, has been awarded the 2016-17 REB Award for Distinguished Educational Leadership. The Community Foundation presents the award to four principals annually – one each from the school systems of Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanover counties and one from the city of Richmond schools.

The award recognizes principals who go beyond the day-to-day demands of their jobs to create an exceptional educational environment. The award stresses management and communication skills, and the ability to inspire, encourage and advocate for the school. It includes $7,500 for personal development and an additional $7,500 for school projects of the recipient’s choosing.

“I’m very humbled by this,” Halquist-Pruden said to teachers and school leaders who surprised her at the school. “You make this even more special and I’m glad you can share it with me. It’s your hard work that makes my job easier. This is for all of us.”

Halquist-Pruden has been with Henrico County Public Schools since 1994. She became principal at Glen Allen in 2011. She previously worked as a teacher at Glen Lea Elementary School; a school counselor at Longan Elementary School; a resource teacher at Trevvett Elementary School; and as assistant principal and associate principal at Short Pump Elementary School. She is originally from Virginia Beach.

Board chooses Option C for 2017-18 phase of middle school redistricting; Public input set for larger 2018-19 phase

Facebooktwitter

The Henrico County School Board made a decision at its monthly meeting on Thursday on the small-scale first phase of a two-year middle school redistricting process. The Board chose Option C for the first phase, which will move a small pocket of Hungary Creek Middle School’s attendance area to Holman Middle School starting in fall 2017. The move is designed to reduce overcrowded conditions at Hungary Creek, and will only apply to students who are currently in fifth-grade or younger.

The redistricting process now shifts to the larger-scale 2018-19 phase, which would affect more HCPS middle schools. While the small-pocket part of Option C was chosen for the 2017-18 phase, the more sweeping Option C proposal is just one option being considered for the 2018-19 phase, along with Option A.

Where is the pocket and how will affected families be notified?small pocket of Hungary Creek middle school that will be moved to Holman middle school fall 2017.
The pocket affected by the Board’s move is a small area north of West Broad Street where Gaskins and Hungary roads intersect with Springfield Road. Sixty-eight rising students from Springfield Park and Longan elementary schools will be shifted from Hungary Creek to Holman, and those families will receive detailed information about the change and next steps shortly. Affected students would not be moved again as part of the 2018-19 phase.

What’s next?
With the 2017-18 shift decided, the process will now focus on draft options for more extensive 2018-19 shifts. The new Hungary-Creek-to-Holman pocket move will be reflected on maps for the drafts of 2018-19 Option A and 2018-19 Option C, as the public and School Board consider those next-phase possibilities.

How can I comment on the larger-scale 2018-19 options?
There are two in-person events specifically designed for public input:

  • At an informal open-house-style community input session April 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. at L. Douglas Wilder Middle School (6900 Wilkinson Road), members of the public can drop by, see maps of proposed options displayed in the gym and discuss the draft options with staff members and the redistricting consultant.
  • A public hearing May 11 from 6-7:30 p.m. at New Bridge Auditorium (5915 Nine Mile Road) will be a more formal format with an agenda that will include a chance for members of the community to address the Board. Each person’s remarks will be limited to three minutes.

Community members are also encouraged to weigh in by using the online survey/comment form. The form, along with news and resources related to the process, can be found on HCPS’ website, at henricoschools.us/redistricting.

The redistricting process will not affect current middle or high school students.

Public hearing set for March 16 on first phase of proposed middle school redistricting for Henrico Schools

Facebooktwitter

The Henrico County School Board will hold a public hearing on March 16 at Glen Allen High School to get feedback – on the first phase only – of a proposed redistricting process for HCPS middle schools. The first phase would take effect for the 2017-18 school year and would affect a small number of students entering Hungary Creek Middle School. A second proposed phase would be more comprehensive and would take effect for the 2018-19 school year.

In response to overcrowding at Hungary Creek, a small number of students – perhaps 30 to 50 – would attend a new school in fall 2017. The new school has not been decided, nor have the affected areas of Hungary Creek’s attendance zone. No current middle or high school students will be moved to a new school zone in the redistricting process. Draft redistricting options for all phases will be presented to the Board on March 9 and will be available on Henrico Schools’ website March 10 at http://henricoschools.us/redistricting/.

While this public hearing is intended only to hear feedback on options for the smaller 2017-18 changes, there will be ample opportunities later to comment on options for the more comprehensive 2018-19 plan, including a May 11 public hearing.

Community members are encouraged to sign up in advance to speak at the public hearing. To sign up, call the clerk of the School Board at 804-652-3808. A sign-up sheet will be available at the meeting, but there may be more speakers than allotted time. Each speaker will have three minutes to make comments. Organized neighborhoods are asked to designate a spokesperson; that person would make remarks and then ask those in attendance who agree with the expressed views to stand as a show of their support.

What: Public hearing on the proposed 2017-18 phase of HCPS’ middle school redistricting process
When: Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 6-7:30 p.m.
Where: Glen Allen High School, 10700 Staples Mill Road, Glen Allen, Va., 23060
