Today was a perfect day for a field trip! πŸ‚ Our PHES and AHES fourth graders traveled to Fairy Stone State Park today to plant the native black willow trees they have been sprouting in their classrooms thanks to the Dan River Basin Association's Streamside Trees in the Classroom. Students spent the whole day outside at the park, immersed in all things nature. Besides planting their trees, they also learned about the important role riparian buffers play in protecting our waterways, the geology of fairy stones, played a trivia game, and more! Our MHS AP biology students also got in on the fun, preparing and facilitating some creative activities for the younger students! Thank you to all of our amazing high school students, teachers, and community partners who came together to make this day possible for our young learners!

Today is the 20th day of school! Students who have missed two or more days by this point in the school year are considered chronically absent. It's never too early to start building the habit of good attendance! Children who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by third grade. Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of third grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of high school. #AttendanceMattersVA #schooleveryday
