STEAM Challenge

Mehfoud at-home STEAM Challenges! Each month, we will release a STEAM choice board. Snap a picture or use Flipgrid and send it to your teacher! We will spotlight some of the projects on our morning announcements and school social media.  This challenge is optional for students, however, we will be doing drawings for prizes for participants starting Monday, 10/12! Our lucky winners will receive free passes to go to the Hanover Vegetable Garden with their families! In order to be entered to win, you must send at least one picture or video of you working on a project (or the completed project) to your teacher. We can’t wait to see all the ways our students have fun learning about pumpkins, leaves, and apples this month! Happy exploring!

HEALTH UPDATE

Health update: On Thursday, the Health Committee gave us an update on health conditions in central Virginia. We’ve seen some encouraging signs, but as of Sept. 19, data from the Virginia Department of Health shows that COVID-19 still presents a “substantial/high burden” to the public and the transmission trend is “fluctuating.” The committee will continue to monitor the situation and will update us again Oct. 8. The members plan to make a recommendation about the second nine weeks by the Oct. 22 meeting. You can see a video of the committee’s most recent update at HCPS’ new Health Updates webpage.

October is Hispanic Heritage Month

October is Hispanic Heritage Month, and Henrico County Public Schools will host four virtual events as part of the observance. The events include a panel discussion on activist Dolores Huerta; a teacher panel on Hispanic representation in education; a presentation on community resources; and a discussion of language in the Hispanic community. The events are free and are presented by HCPS’ Department of Equity, Diversity, and Opportunity. While some events are geared toward particular audiences, everyone is welcome to attend.

 

All four events are virtual, and students, staff, and members of the public can participate using Microsoft Teams. Please register for the events by going to https://tinyurl.com/HCPSHispanicHeritage2020. The day before the event, you will receive a link via email to join the event.

Resources to Go Online for the First Nine

 

We’ve gathered HCPS’ online services on a new page called “The Connection,” and made it even easier to find the tools you need, and how to sign up. Some particularly important ones:

 

  • PowerSchool (pre-K through 12th grade) gives families easy access to class grades, attendance information, and student schedules. The online tool comes in two versions: one for students and one for parents and guardians called PowerSchool Parent Portal.
  • NEW: PowerSchool Parent Portal is available now for parents and guardians at all grade levels! Parents new to PowerSchool can set up accounts for the first time and returning families can log in for 2020-21 information. If you need assistance with your student’s login/password or student I.D. number, please email helpdesk@henrico.k12.va.us and a member of our Technology team will respond within 24 hours to provide assistance.
  • Schoology for Parents and Guardians (pre-K through 12th grade): Schoology is HCPS’ online learning management system, and helps support “anytime, anywhere” learning. The common platform connects students, families, teachers, and academic content. With a parent account, you can stay abreast of announcements, assignments, and assessments at your child’s school. Go to The Connection to find out how to sign up for Schoology for Parents and Guardians.
