We’ll start with the calendar this week:
We have the last PTA after school classes on Tuesday, however the martial arts and candy science classes will extend to Tuesday, March 12th due to not having it this past week. Tuesday evening our high school boys basketball team is making history, with its first trip to the Class 2 state semifinals. Let’s wear bulldog colors of read and yellow to show our support Tuesday. Garden Club meets after school on Wednesday. On Saturday we have a fun event we’d love for Randolph families to support. Over 10 of our RES staff will be performing in a variety show on the high school stage at 6pm. This is a Band Fundraiser, where they are just asking for a small donation for admission. I will be performing a song from Phantom of the Opera, Mrs. Blevins will be singing with her husband on the guitar, Mrs. Alley will show off her vocal talents, and then a whole slew of staff will be lip syncing and dancing through the decades. Other school performances include a rock band, glow dance, and some magic. It looks like it will be around 45 minutes – so it would be easy to fit this in before heading to dinner!
Several announcements for you:
- Make sure you are sending in the Go Nuts for Reading bookmarks. They are due on March 20th. Students will then get ticket vouchers and families will be able to purchase additional tickets for the April 18th Flying Squirrels game.
- GCPS is hosting it’s second annual Wellness Night on March 20th at 6:00 p.m. at Goochland High School. Wellness Night is sponsored by the Teen Mental Health Awareness Committee and is intended for parents and teenagers. The event will feature informative and interactive sessions on a variety of topics, including mental health, yoga, safe technology use, and physical fitness. There will be dinner, door prizes, and childcare (for ages 5+). Please refer to this flyer for additional information and make sure to RSVP at this website: https://bit.ly/2EaSAFt or by calling 556-5615
- Summer camp info is starting to go out for the YMCA, Scouts, and other organizations. Goochland Social Services’ Community Action program asked that I mention a partnership with Parks and Recreation. They are making some scholarships available for each of the summer camps. Here is the summer camp flyer. Here is the scholarship information.
- Lastly, I wanted to call your attention to one other attachment about e-cigarettes. Although this is not a topic that I’ve had to deal with at Randolph, it is something that Goochland is keeping an eye on. We are committed to keeping our children safe, and part of that is helping to keep you informed of community concerns. Take a moment to become familiar with this addictive product that can be hidden more easily than cigarettes.
