Email Update: Stafford County Schools Summer News

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope everybody is enjoying their summer, especially all of our school children.  The School Board is continuing to work throughout the summer to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year.  There have been a few projects going on I’d like to give you an update on.

The renovation of Grafton Village Elementary School is complete.  The school administration has moved into the newly renovated office space in the school on Deacon Road.  Grafton Village Elementary teachers, students and parents will start the new school year in the renovated building.  The new building features spacious classrooms, more natural light in many parts of the building, new HVAC and other mechanical systems and a beautiful open and naturally lit library.

At Stafford High School the construction of the new school building remains on schedule and continues to make progress.  The building will be ready to open to welcome students and staff in the 2015-2016 school year.  This year the new turf field will be ready for play for the home football games.

I also wanted to pass along information about a couple of opportunities where you can help our schools.  The Collect For Kids school supply drive is off and running.  This event formally known as Stuff The Bus collects school supplies for students in need.  You can find more information how you can help at https://www.applefcu.org/AppleWeb/CollectForKids

Drew Middle School needs your help.  More specifically a former Drew Middle School Student that is pursuing a Boy Scout Eagle Award needs your help.  The Eagle project involves painting the walls of Drew Middle School with a fresh coat of bright white paint.  Our scout is asking for help from the community to come out and paint the walls.  There are shifts available the week of July 27th.  You can sign up on the Drew Middle School Signup Genius page (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0b44adac28a31-help).  Please note this activity must be done by adults.  Children are not allowed for safety concerns.

Join me on Monday night July 28th to help paint Drew Middle School and dinner is on me.  I will provide pizza and drink for all painters that come out for the 5PM-9PM shift!  I would love to see you there!  Please be sure to sign up on the Signup Genius website.

Enjoy your summer!
