Calling All Charger Football Players!

August 23, 2017

Middlesex Community,

We need your help promoting this year’s Junior Varsity Football program. We are danger of not being able to field a team due to uncharacteristically low turnout thus far. Given the teams we play, it would be irresponsible for us to move forward with only a handful of student athletes – especially when many are younger. Without back-up support and younger athletes, our competition against seasoned, older players would result in possible injury.

We are hopeful that with your support, we will find more student athletes who want to learn and grow together in this wonderful sport!

If you or your child have any questions, please contact Athletic Director, Matt Stamm, or MHS Principal, Susan Fleet at (804)758-2132.

We hope to see you!

Reality Store: A Partnership with an Engaged Community

April 7, 2017

Members of the Middlesex Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs and the educators at St. Clare Walker Middle School team up each year to create a remarkable experience for middle school students. The “Reality Store” is set up in various locations throughout the school. The different aspects of life within a community are created virtually to allow students the ability to interact with the financial decisions and responsibilities that await them in adult life.

Students log onto a secure web portal where they research and select careers, they acquire (monopoly) money, learn the essence of the fundamentals of banking, and are then unleashed into a virtual society of decisions that require reflection and careful planning. At one station, a volunteer walks them through housing decisions, at another they recreate the purchase of vehicles and clothing – all the while coaching and mentoring students through the checkbook balancing process so they can see, in real time, the challenges of living within a budget.

We are thankful for the time, energy and expertise our selfless volunteers bring and share with our students. Reality Store is an incredibly valuable educational experience and one we look forward to flourishing for years to come!

Delegate Hodges Visits Middlesex Elementary School

March 21, 2017

Delegate Keith Hodges spent the better part of Monday, March 20th in classrooms at Middlesex Elementary School as part of the school board’s recognition of the VSBA Take Your Legislator to School Month program. He visited classrooms at every grade level, interacting with students about their learning and responding to questions the students had about the delegate’s position, the laws he’s helped to shepherd, and the way the three branches of government relate to one another.

One group of second graders took a very active role in teaching Del. Hodges the specifics of coding and programming with a unique lesson involving tiny robots called “Ozbots.” He then sat down with the students and put pen to paper and created his own Ozbot track.

Special thanks to Delegate Hodges, not only for his advocacy and support, but for his personal investment and interest in our schools!
