The Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) deemed the month of November as "Take Your Legislator to School Month."  It was created by the VSBA to build stronger relationships between public education and the Virginia General Assembly.  Yesterday, some of our legislators and county officials had the opportunity to visit our schools to see some of the great things we have going on in our buildings. They were also able to interact with students and staff.

We were joined yesterday by Delegate Tommy Wright; Board of Supervisors Members Alvester Edmonds, Edward Pennington, and Mike Hankins along with newly-elected Board of Supervisors Member Greg Currin who will officially take office in January; County Administrator Tracy Gee; Chairperson of the School Board Melanie Currin; and School Board Member Ruby Ingram.

The group visited several classrooms at Lunenburg Middle School led by students Shelby Gee and Kyra Elder.  The group was able to interact with students who were building robots and to see a discussion regarding water conservation in one of the science classes.  They also visited a math classroom where students worked in small groups.  

At Central High School the group enjoyed a student-led presentation regarding the school's Career and Technical Education program, highlighting the service learning project with Lunenburg Animal Shelter and the school's new School-Based Enterprise,  Central Spa & Grooming (serving pets of school employees).  

At Victoria Elementary, the group saw a sampling of projects being done by various grade levels and learned about the Junior Librarian program.  They even had the opportunity to solve multiplication problems using Lattice Math after a brief lesson given by fourth-grade students.  

At Kenbridge Elementary the group was led on a tour by the Student Council.  The group saw many projects displayed throughout the school including shoebox book reports and other artwork. 

We appreciate our legislators taking time out of their day to visit our schools!
