Virginia CyberCamp 2016 Being Held at Central High School

The Central High School Virginia CyberCamp 2016 Program, sponsored by a grant received from the Virginia Department of Education, has begun, and students have had an opportunity to participate in two field trips recently. On June 15, students and staff visited the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) National Weather Service office in Wakefield, VA. Students visited with Mr. Bill Sammler, Warning Coordination Meteorologist.  He shared with the group the different storm tracking and radar maps that are used in the facility and gave them a behind the scenes tour of the facility. Students learned that technology drives the predictions/forecasts and that weather events are constantly changing.  Cyber security was discussed due to the dependence on technology, and building security was discussed as well.

On June 21, 2016, students visited the First Citizens Bank Data Center in Raleigh, NC, thanks to assistance from Mrs. Tammy Manning, Manager for Business Banking for the Southside Area.  Students and staff obtained badges when they arrived to the center, and these allowed them to enter into and exit out of rooms in the center. Students and staff were accompanied by data center staff at all times.  Everyone realized very quickly the importance of security for this facility.  Students visited with Mrs. Jennifer Rosario, Vice President/Manger-IT Risk Governance Information Technology, Mr. Todd Beadle, Principal Security Architect, and Ms. Jodi Bronson, IT Professional.  Students and staff were given a tour of the Technology Command Center and the Data Center and they were also provided with a presentation concerning “Managing a Major Breach”.  Mr. Beadle spoke of a past experience with a hacker who breached the Lowes computer system.  He told the group a fascinating account of how the breach occurred and what steps were taken to correct the breach as well as to arrest the guilty individuals. Students were informed that First Citizens Bank’s cyber security department hires interns from 5 local colleges and that the field in cyber security will definitely offer job security. They also learned that Cyber Security is a growing field and job growth and outlook is excellent.

During the camp, students are increasing their hands on experiences in STEM activities consisting of curriculum, VEX EDR robotics, Boe Bots, and electrical modules.   They are discussing business ethics, conducting research using computers and career planning tools, and exploring job opportunities and career planning paths for cyber security.  They are obtaining real world information from their field trips as well as through guest speakers from cyber security related businesses.

The camp is from June 14-29 and students have a fast paced action packed 10 days during this camp.  At the culmination of the CyberCamp, recognition will be given to students who successfully complete the program.

 


Elementary Gifted Students Attend Lego Robotics Camp at Central High School June 6-9, 2016

Gifted students from Lunenburg County's two elementary schools had the opportunity to attend Lego Robotics Camp, June 6-9, 2016, at Central High School. At the camp, students built their own robots. They then learned how to program them. By the end of the camp, students had programmed their robots to "wrestle" in a rink, with the winner of each match being the robot who could push the other robot out of the rink first. The group enjoyed this hands on learning experience.

Second Graders at Victoria Elementary School Experience Hands-On Learning with Baby Chicks and Butterflies

Mrs. K. Hall's 2nd grade class hatched baby chicks.  The students were able to candle the eggs using a flashlight on day seven to determine if it had a baby chick inside.  Mrs. Hall has a set of plastic eggs that show the day-by-day development of the baby chicks.  On day 21 the students were able to watch as the babies finally made their way out of the egg.  The students were really excited to hold a baby chick!

Amy McClure Selected as the First Virginia Lottery Super Teacher of 2016

McClure is a Lunenburg County School Board Member and Instructor at The Governor's School
of Southside Virginia

There are some amazing teachers out there – SuperTeachers, in fact, and many of them are right here in Virginia. Amy McClure is one of those teachers, and that’s why she was selected to receive the 2016 Virginia Lottery Super Teacher award.

Mrs. McClure received the award today in a surprise presentation at The Governor’s School of Southside Virginia in front of students, faculty and special guests. The award, sponsored by the Virginia Lottery, the Virginia PTA and Virginia-based The Supply Room Companies, consists of a $2,000 cash prize and an additional $2,000 classroom credit from The Supply Room Companies.

This is the ninth year for the Virginia Lottery Super Teacher awards, which honor outstanding K-12 public school educators. Each year, the Lottery asks for nominations from all across the state, and this year, received nearly 800 total. From there, a panel of judges selects eight teachers – one from each geographic region across the state – to win. Amy McClure is the first educator to receive the Super Teacher Award for 2016. Seven more surprise presentations will occur this spring. 

“Calculus and pre-calculus are tough subjects for our students,” points out nominator and colleague Dr. Joyce Hurt. “While Mrs. McClure is an excellent teacher, she also uses every technological advancement available to help her students learn. For example, she uses SmartBoard, SmartNotebook, Google Docs, Blackboard, Remind 101, Apple TV, iPads, Turning Point Clickers, document cameras, QR Codes, Skype, Green Screen Technology, and Google Handouts to enhance her students' learning opportunities. She is very cognizant of the diversity of learning styles, and she strives to accommodate them. She also incorporates projects and hands-on experiments to make her lessons more interesting.”

The 2016 Virginia Lottery Super Teachers were selected by a panel of distinguished educators and community leaders, including:

  • Dr. Jo Lynne DeMary, former State Superintendent for Public Instruction
  • Dr. Martha Ross, professor emerita, JMU
  • The Honorable James W. Dyke, former Virginia Secretary of Education
  • Jane Brooks, President of the Virginia PTA
  • Michael Salvatierra, 2014 Super Teacher Award Recipient, Venable Elementary School in Charlottesville

The judges selected the eight winners based on the strength of the nominations and educators’ qualities as exemplified by the nominators. Each nomination includes answers to four questions addressing everything from the teacher’s passion for and commitment to the profession, to innovation and creativity in the classroom, to how the teacher involves the students’ parents.

“We’re game for education, and these awards are a great way for the Lottery to demonstrate that,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. “We are committed to supporting Virginia’s public schools, and that includes recognizing outstanding Super Teachers who are making such a difference in the education of Virginia’s youth and, indeed, our future leaders.”

The Portable Chargers Continue to Perform Well in their First Year of Competition

The Portable Chargers continue to do well in competition. This past weekend, they traveled to Hampton Roads, and out of 35 teams they ended up ranking 22nd. They also formed a 3 team alliance they competed and ended up placing 2nd. Coach Mark Bailey said, "I don't think I have ever been as proud of a team. It was great to see kids learn how to not only do simple things, but to learn life skills, people skills, and very complex 'figure it out and fix it now' skills." 

With a couple of statewide events to go, there is a possibility that the team might qualify for the district championship. They take 55 teams for the district competition, and currently the Portable Chargers are ranked 37 out of 200 teams. Keep in mind also that this is their first year of competition. This fact makes these accomplishments even more outstanding! (Competition photo credit - D. Minnix)

 

 


Jali-D, The DrumTalker, Visits Central High School

On Friday, March 25, 2016, Jali-D, the Drum Talker, performed at Central High School for students, staff, and a few visitors. He is a skilled percussionist and hip hop lyricist who turns his talents into “rappercussion”. His rhymes concentrated on math,science, reading as well as the importance of academic success and the value of achievement. 

His interaction with the students kept them spelled bound and involved. If students were able to answer his questions about his rhyme or his drum, they were called down to the floor to play the drum as he rhymed.

Students were also able to complete several rhymes that he told to them so that he could determine if they were paying attention, and to his surprise they were. He often complimented the students for their participation and attentiveness. Students were able to answer him with great enthusiasm. 

This was a great program that demonstrated that learning can be made fun with music and rhyme. A huge thank you goes to Mr. Reginald Davis for arranging this performance!

Charger Courtyard Campaign is Underway

Plans are underway to improve and expand the current Central High School patio, an area that is enjoyed regularly by students, staff, and community members.
