Henrico, Va., June 20, 2018 — In an effort designed to ensure that children receive nutritious meals when school is not in session, all children are now eligible for meals at no charge at most summer sites run by Henrico County Public Schools and Henrico Recreation and Parks. In past years, the program focused on children enrolled in summer programs.
 
After the scheduled meal service for children enrolled in summer programs is over, meal service will begin for other children age 18 or younger who are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians are not eligible for the free meal service. Henrico Schools is participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program through its Division of School Nutrition Services.
 
Thirty-one sites will be serving meals to all children, while one program site – Echo Lake Elementary School – will continue the former policy of providing meal service only to children enrolled in summer programs. 
 
Food service will be from Monday through Thursday each week. (Please note that all sites will be closed Wednesday, July 4, in recognition of the Independence Day holiday.) Breakfast will be served from 7-9 a.m. and lunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Specific breakfast and lunch times will vary depending on the location.
 
Service is on a first come, first served basis, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the administration of the meal service. Meals will be provided to children at the following sites:

Henrico, Va., May 9, 2018 – Henrico Schools employs about 3,900 teachers, but only one is honored each year with the division’s Gilman Teacher of the Year Award. Nichole Gross, an eighth-grade teacher at Fairfield Middle School, was awarded that honor Tuesday at a ceremony at Glen Allen High School. Amber Hornbarger, a fourth-grade teacher at Glen Lea Elementary School, was named HCPS’ First-Year Teacher of the Year.

Other finalists for the Teacher of the Year Award were Trevvett Elementary School’s Jessica Capano; Matthew Togna of J.R. Tucker High School; Benjamin Fabian of Douglas Freeman High School; and Taylor Allen of Ward Elementary School. Other finalists for First-Year Teacher of the Year were Leigh Anne Pastore of Echo Lake Elementary School and John Rolfe Middle School teacher Devon Garrett.

“I’m grateful for all of you and what you do,” Gross told the crowd of educators. “I’m grateful for my mom, who when I acted up, made me read a novel and write a five-page essay … I’m thankful for the grandmother I never got to meet, who was an English teacher. I’m thankful for my grandfather who raised my dad to read a newspaper every single day. In my household, literacy was always at the forefront. And I’m thankful now to be able to give other kids the same opportunity that I have a passion for.”

Gross grew up in Washington. Her passion for teaching reading in underprivileged communities began early; at age 16, she created her own reading program through the Summer Youth Employment Program. She attended the University of Virginia, and earned a bachelor’s degree from Virginia State University and a master’s degree from Capella University. Before joining the Fairfield faculty in 2008, she spent several years working in information technology at a large corporation.

Hornbarger’s roots in Henrico County are deep. She attended Springfield Park Elementary School, Hungary Creek Middle School and J.R. Tucker High School. Her father’s family attended Glen Lea, where Hornbarger now teaches, and her maternal grandmother was crowned “Miss Short Pump” in the 1950s. Hornbarger received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University.

“My roots are here and I plan to stay in the county,” said Hornbarger. “This honor is confirmation that I’ve entered the right career, but I know this is my first year and I still have so much to learn and explore. I absolutely love what I do, the staff I work with and my supportive administration and specialists. My students thrive because of the incredible foundation that Henrico County schools provide.”

The school system also announced three winners of the Chris Corallo Distinguished Leadership Award: Tuckahoe Middle School’s Earl Estes, an exceptional education teacher; Robbi Moose, the principal of Hungary Creek Middle School; and Kourtney Bostain, the division’s assistant director of instructional technology. The three were chosen from individuals nominated by their peers for their vision, passion, innovation and student-centered focus. The award is named in honor of Corallo, a former HCPS assistant superintendent for instruction and organizational development, who died in 2013.

Henrico, Va., May 1, 2018 – Applications are now being accepted for Henrico County Public Schools’ new Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee. Formation of the 26-person committee is the school division’s next step in its efforts to increase equity and diversity. The deadline to apply is May 13.
 
To apply go to http://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/b581g5a814 or go to henricoschools.us and look under “Hot Topics.”

The group will include one teacher, one student, one parent and one school leader from each of Henrico’s five magisterial districts. Five seats are reserved for interested citizens, preferably one from each magisterial district. The committee will be chaired by the director of equity and diversity and supported by a liaison from the Henrico School Board.

The committee will meet approximately nine times, generally the first Tuesday evening of each month, between June and March. Members will also be part of one or more subcommittees devoted to focused topics. The smaller groups will meet as necessary.

Applicants are requested to provide demographic information, respond to several questions, and provide one personal recommendation in the event that they become a finalist. The demographic information will be used to ensure diverse representation. Personal recommendations will only be requested during the final selection process.

Questions about the process can be directed to Monica Manns, the school division’s director of equity and diversity, at mmanns@henrico.k12.va.us.

One source that will inform the new committee’s agenda will be information gleaned from a series of community listening sessions. The sessions are being held in each magisterial district by the school division’s Office of Equity and Diversity. Feedback received at the forums will be shared with the advisory committee, as well as School Board members and Henrico Schools administrators. The final listening session will be today from 4-5 p.m. at the Twin Hickory Area Library at 5001 Twin Hickory Road in Glen Allen. In addition, a survey will be forthcoming. The data from the sessions and survey will help guide the division’s next steps.

“If we identify themes emerging, those will be possible areas of focus for the Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee,” Manns said.

SOLs and Your Students
Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Varina Area Library
Noon–1:30 p.m.
Students in grades 3-12 will take between two and four Standards of Learning (SOL) tests a year, depending on their grade level and the courses taken during the year.

Understanding Dyslexia and Other Reading Problems
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Raising a Confident Child: What’s Your Parenting Style?
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
New Bridge Learning Center
6–7:30 p.m.

Confidence is one of the greatest gifts a parent can instill in their child. A kid who lacks confidence will be reluctant to try new or challenging things because they’re afraid of failing or disappointing others. This can end up holding them back, so parents must encourage and support children as they attempt to tackle difficult tasks. Parents want to raise children with healthy self-esteem and confidence, but how do you avoid creating an inflated ego and feelings of entitlement? What’s your parenting style? Parenting style is “the emotional climate in which parents raise their children.” Your parenting style can affect everything from how much your child weighs to his or her self-image. Do you believe in lots of discipline or are you more permissive? Find out about the different types of parenting and learn about which will works best for you.

Henrico, Va. April 19, 2018 – For the 19th straight year, Henrico County Public Schools has been named a national leader in music education by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation. The school division has received the honor each year since the music-industry group began compiling its list of America’s “Best Communities for Music Education” in 1999. 
 
The designation is based on a detailed survey of a school division’s commitment to music instruction through funding, staffing of highly qualified teachers, commitment to standards and access to music instruction. The award recognizes the commitment of school administrators, community leaders, teachers and families who believe in music education and work to make music education accessible to all students.
 
“This recognition honors the professionalism of our teachers, and the diversity and inclusiveness of our program offerings,” said Rick Tinsley, Henrico Schools’ music education specialist. “It also recognizes the strong support provided by our school division administration and our community. We have talented students and excellent music educators in Henrico County and it is always appreciated when hard work and dedication is recognized.”
 
Studies have shown an association between exposure to the arts and academic and civic engagement.
 
The National Association of Music Merchants Foundation is funded by music trade association activities and donations. The foundation works to promote music education as an important part of the core educational curriculum.

Henrico County Public Schools hires director to oversee equity and diversity efforts

Henrico, Va., March 26, 2018 – Monica Manns will be the first director of Henrico Schools’ new Office of Equity and Diversity. Manns was introduced Thursday evening at the monthly meeting of the Henrico School Board.

Henrico, Va., March 26, 2018 – Monica Manns will be the first director of Henrico Schools’ new Office of Equity and Diversity. Manns was introduced Thursday evening at the monthly meeting of the Henrico School Board. The new position is part of the school division’s core leadership team and reports directly to the superintendent.

Manns has extensive experience in education in Henrico County and in other diverse settings, serving as a principal, teacher, counselor, consultant and administrator.

From 2009-13, she worked for the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls, serving first as principal of the alternative John G. Wood School, then as the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls’ director of education and vice president of educational services.

Manns is familiar with Henrico County Public Schools. From 2004-07 she was department chair for special education at the Academy at Virginia Randolph. From 2013-16 – first as a consultant and then a prevention specialist – she helped the school division lay the foundation for remaking student disciplinary policy and support systems. During her time at Henrico Schools, she also helped start a mindfulness program for schools in Henrico, and helped launch a voluntary reading group for African-American male students at Fairfield Middle School. She left Henrico Schools in 2016 and is eager to return.

“I’m really excited,” Manns said. “I want to spend time learning, listening, and helping people have collaborative, solution-oriented conversations around issues of equity and diversity. If we do that, we can all work together and move things forward.”

After beginning her career in 1996 as a vocational counselor helping people transition from incarceration to the workforce, she was drawn to education’s preventative power. She worked as a special education teacher in Fairfax Schools and at an alternative school run by Lutheran Family Services of Virginia; as a vocational coordinator for high-risk students; and as statewide training coordinator for United Methodist Family Services. She has also worked as a coordinator of individualized education plans for students with various special needs, including gifted education.

Manns has served on the board of the Henrico Education Foundation since 2016, where she has focused on issues of equity and preventive discipline. She serves on the boards of the adoption advocacy group Children’s Home Society; of SisterFund, which awards grants to local groups supporting African-American girls and women; and of the Stone Foundation, which promotes expanded health care. In 2012, she was part of Style Weekly’s “Top 40 under 40” feature, the publication’s annual list of people under 40 who are leading change and making a mark in the Richmond area.

Manns grew up in Roanoke and in Silver Spring, Md. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Berea College in Kentucky. She has a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Kentucky; a master’s in education from Virginia Tech; and a certificate in educational administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. She is working on a doctorate in special education administration at the College of William and Mary.

“I think my background and experiences have helped me to be aware of diversity on a wide scale,” Manns said. “Not just ethnic and racial diversity, but economic as well. I’ve worked on poverty issues in cities and in Appalachia. My stepmother was an immigrant from El Salvador, my stepfather is Italian-American, my father is African-American and my mom is Native American. My kids are adopted from Ethiopia.”

Manns will oversee Henrico Schools’ efforts at increasing equity and diversity across the school division. One of her first efforts will be guiding the creation of the HCPS Equity and Diversity Advisory Committee. The new group will be comprised of students, parents, staff and community members. The group had previously been referred to as a task force. Manns will also oversee community listening sessions this spring to get public input on issues of diversity and equity. More information about the advisory committee and the listening sessions will be announced as it becomes available.

“Henrico County is a beautifully diverse place, and our school division is an incredible reflection of that diversity,” said Patrick C. Kinlaw, Henrico Schools superintendent. “Monica will help take our equity and diversity efforts to a new, higher level. This being a cabinet-level position means that all of our efforts as a leadership team will be viewed through that lens of equity and diversity.”

“We are so happy to have Monica to lead our equity and diversity efforts,” said Michelle F. “Micky” Ogburn, School Board chair and Three Chopt District representative. “She has the right mix of education, training and real world experience to make positive changes in our school system and communities. Simply put, Monica is a person who gets things done, and we look forward to having her onboard.”

In addition to facilitating the new advisory committee, Manns will develop, implement and assess Henrico Schools’ short- and long-range cultural diversity plans in pursuit of the division’s goals, and coordinate related professional development for staff members. She will collaborate with other HCPS departments on academic programs and curricula; help to recruit and retain a diverse workforce; serve as a contact point for parent and employee concerns about cultural diversity; connect with community organizations; and serve as a coach and trainer for students, families and employees on cultural diversity issues.

Manns will also help solidify new relationships with some community groups on issues of equity and diversity. The school division is expanding its work with the nonprofit Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities. The group provides Henrico Schools with ongoing guidance and support with challenges such as bullying, equity, racial relations, harassment, ethics and cultural responsiveness. The organization was recognized in 2013 and 2016 by the General Assembly for its work with schools, businesses and communities.
