Lunenburg County Public Schools Recognizes American Education Week
November 16-20, 2015

American Education Week presents all Americans with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate public education and honor individuals who are making a difference in ensuring that every child receives a quality education.  This year's theme is, "Great Public Schools:  A Basic Right and Our Responsibility."  Recognition of this week affords all citizens of this great nation the opportunity to honor the wonderful people who make a difference in the lives of our children and educators.  We celebrate our public education system, especially our teachers, for making every effort to ensure the our children receive the best education possible.

This year marks the 90th year that American Education Week has been observed.  It is a week that we recognize the professionalism and dedication of teachers, support staff and administrators, who help students achieve their potential educationally, which in turn helps them to be successful as adults in the future.

Mr. Berkley extends his thanks to faculty and staff, "The Lunenburg County School Board, the Central Office Administrative Staff, and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our teachers, support staff, and administrators throughout the Lunenburg County Public School Division.  Your continued hard work, perseverance, and commitment to the education of our students is beyond outstanding, and you are greatly appreciated for all that you do."

Lunenburg County Public SchoolsCHS Spa Night a Huge Success

Click here to see images from CHS Spa Night 2015.

CHS Cares is an organization comprised of all faculty, staff, students, and parents of Central High School. Our goal is to recognize needs within our community and make efforts to meet those needs.  Each year, we support ten Salvation Army Christmas Angels.  The students try to raise at least $1000 so that they will have $100 to spend per child.  Often, there are bicycles on the Angels’ wish lists. Our students believe that it is important for these angels to receive bicycles if they ask for them, so actually we were hoping to raise $1,200 to cover the additional costs.  

On November 11th, CHS Cares sponsored a Spa Night held in Central’s library. Community members purchased a ticket to receive a haircut, a simple hand massage and manicure, or a neck massage. While waiting, customers enjoyed refreshments or shopped at our book fair and bake sale.  Services were provided by The Mane Event Salon & Spa of South Hill, Jade of Victoria, Bob’s Barbershop of Kenbridge, Ms. Mary Lee, hairstylist, and Ms. R. Langert, hairstylist. Additional sponsors included A & J Produce who donated a beautiful fruit basket, Victoria Subway who donated cookies for the refreshment table, and Mr. & Mrs. Jamie Buchanan who donated four delicious pies from The Horseshoe Restaurant in South Hill. Faculty, students, and staff also baked pies, cakes, and cookies to fill the refreshment table and bake sale tables.  

The event was a tremendous success!  Ladies and gentlemen alike were pampered and styled throughout the evening.  After all calculations, the CHS Cares raised over $1,300!  Not only did we raise money for a good cause, but our students also interacted with the community in a positive way. CHS Cares will now take the Angels’ lists and meet at the Farmville Walmart and shop for the Christmas gifts.  Already, students are asking about next year’s event.  We would like thank everyone who came out on the Wednesday to support this good cause.

CHS Holds Bonfire to Celebrate the Beginning of Varsity Football Playoffs

Governor Terry McAuliffe has declared November as Family Involvement in Education Month

Lunenburg County Public Schools recognizes Governor Terry McAuliffe’s declaration of November as Family Involvement in Education Month. Families and parents are the key to helping children do their best in whatever endeavors they pursue. The outcome for all of our students improves when parents take an active role in their child’s education. When parents work with the schools, attend meetings and events, monitor homework and bedtimes, our students achieve success. Our school system wishes to develop and maintain a concrete partnership with our parents in order for our students to not only succeed in school, but to ultimately be active, productive members of society.

There are many resources available for parents. The school system’s website, as a whole, has lots of information that is useful to parents regarding upcoming events and recent events that have occurred. There is also a Parent tab with resources listed that are specific to our parents.

The school system encourages parents to attend (Parent Teacher Organization) PTO meetings and to become active members, serving on the PTO board at your child’s school. Request a volunteer and chaperone form to fill out, and get that process going. If you have done this, when a volunteer opportunity or field trip comes up in your child’s school, you will be able to assist.

Spring workshops are being planned and dates will be announced on the website. Flyers will also go home about these opportunities. Click here for some additional information on what you can do as a parent to ensure your child’s success. You, as a parent working with our school system, can make a huge difference in your child’s educational success!

KES Garden is Becoming a Reality

KES is creating a garden with the help of Twigs and Berries and Matthews Lawn Care.  The KES Garden Project was spearheaded by KES Teacher Mark Roncinske.  Students will plant, grow, and eat vegetation grown here.  

Assistant Principal Lucy Hall says, "People wonder why living in a small town is so great. Here is one of the reasons... This is the beginning of the KES garden. The pictures don't do it justice. A huge thank you to Twigs and Berries and Matthews Lawn Care!! They have given us a great foundation and a place for the students at KES to learn even more."

Students will be helping out with the garden this Friday, November 6, 2015.  We will post more photos at that time so that you can see the progress being made.

CHS's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) visits The Peoples Community Center (TPCC) Food Pantry in Victoria

Students took time away from the Homecoming festivities on campus to provide some much needed and appreciated community service to local citizens to the food pantry on October 22, 2015.

FBLA members go to the food pantry each month to help those often elderly or disabled patrons that are present to pick up prepared food boxes carry them to their vehicles. Often, in month's of greater need students will be asked to help prepare additional boxes of food if the pantry gives out all of the boxes prepared ahead of time.

In a typical month, TPCC Food Pantry prepares and distributes approximately 300-400 boxes of food.

Benchmark Donates

Benchmark Donates Funds to the new FIRST Robotics Team at Central High School started with a Grant from Mid Atlantic Broadband

Lunenburg County Public Schools has worked with Bill Wilson, through the Southside VA Regional Technology Consortium, of which we are a member, to secure a grant through Mid Atlantic Broadband to start up a FIRST Robotics Team at Central High School. The grant we have received covers our registration cost and other start up of the team.  Mark Bailey, science teacher at Central High School, will be leading this effort as the team's coach.  Currently, there are 16 students committed to the team called the Portable Chargers.

We are grateful to Benchmark Community Bank who has already donated $1,000 to the cause.  This donation will help us to match some of the remaining funds that are available to us for start up cost.  The team will travel to compete in two district events, and there will be additional costs involved with traveling that are not covered in the grant funding. 

We are looking for sponsors to cover this cost and to help match the remaining funds for which we are eligible. The Portable Chargers will be organizing fundraiser's as well. This is a project that will allow us to utilize our new 3 D printers and will help us move our students into the 21st Century.

The Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts were in attendance to participate in a flag ceremony for our program. Mrs. Cristyl Word sang the National Anthem after a second grade student led the Pledge of Allegiance.  The Veterans were welcomed by a kindergarten and first grade student. Each Veteran in attendance introduced himself/herself to our student body and we were proud to announce that the Veterans present represented 284 years of service to our country. The Veterans in attendance enjoyed a reader’s theater by some of our fourth and fifth grade students as well as a musical selection by our third graders. Mr. Christopher Tomlinson, Sr. presented a powerpoint presentation. This presentation explained who a veteran is and the five branches of the United States military. Each Veteran received a “Thank You for Your Service” certificate that students had colored. During lunches, many Veterans were in attendance to enjoy a meal with different grade levels.

Lunenburg Middle School ACE Team Has Successful Year

The Lunenburg Middle School ACE Team started the season with only one player returning from last year’s team. The meets were hosted by Russell Middle School. After the first meet, the team had one win and was seventh in points, but they had gained some experience. The Blue Devils would win two of the four rounds in the second meet and move to fifth in the points. That would be enough to qualify them for the third meet. The third meet would feature the top six teams in points competing against each other. They would finish the night with 3 wins and tied for 4th place. The entire team did a great job! Top scorers for the team were M. Strigel with 625 points, J. Hall with 380 points, S. Fowler with 295 points, and E. Currin with 140 points. The other members contributing to the team’s success were B. Currin, S. Currin, K. Foster, R. Phillips, A. Smith and M. Sweitzer.
