I want to shout out Dr. Teresa Anderson and Ms. Katrina Evans at Blackwell Elementary for welcoming a new member of the coaching team at Fairfield Court Elementary. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to be thought partners as we continue to move on our journey of educational excellence! #RPSMakingitHappen
A huge shout-out to Tenika Tyson-Wood and Cordell Watkins for leading the Southside STCs through 2 weeks of in-person testing at Broad Rock Elementary School. You two put the logistics in place to keep everything running smoothly. It was an awesome experience working with you and all of the STCs who "set up shop" at Broad Rock for the past few weeks. What an incredible group of positive and hard-working educational leaders!!!
This is a shout-out for Daniela Jacobs, the fabulous principal of William Fox Elementary! Throughout the time we’ve been learning from home, Mrs. Jacobs participated in all of our literacy enrichment activities including the weekly Lit Limo stop, a Hanukkah (virtual) evening read aloud, our Virginia Reads One Book trivia contest, the Fox PTA Readathon, and her final read aloud of the school year, Outside, Inside by LeYuen Pham. Thank you Mrs. Jacobs, for modeling your love of books and reading!
