Gayton Students Participate in H21!!

Students from Mrs. Williams’ class exhibited their H21 project “Extra! Extra! Read All About It!” at the Henrico21 #LifeReady Learning Exhibition on Wednesday night! Students had worked hard all year communicating and collaborating to create a digital newsletter. Articles included book reviews, advertisements for summer camp and interviews of teachers and staff throughout the school. Great job gators!

Beat the “Summer Slide”

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.

For details, resources and lots more ways to foster reading this summer, go to HCPS’ summer reading page.
