Meadows of Dan Elementary School Holds DARE Graduation



The fifth grade students at Meadows of Dan Elementary School participated in the DARE graduation on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.Madison Kenyon and Caleb Hamm gave an overview of the history of the DARE program which began in Los Angeles in 1983. DARE, the Define, Assess, Respond, and Evaluate model is the DARE decision making model that was taught during the school year to help the fifth graders develop life long skills to live a drug and violent free life. SRO Randy Clark, Captain Ward Stone , staff, parents, and other family members joined fifth graders for the special ceremony.
Captain Ward Stone reminded students of the consequences of making poor choices in life. He also praised students for their efforts and diligent work in the DARE program. Both SRO Clark and Principal Jeannie King sent thanks to parents, students, and school personnel for their participation in the DARE program and encouraged students to continue to make wise choices as they are the future of Patrick County. The fifth graders recognized Mrs. Somer Ojodeagua, computer tech for Meadows of Dan Elementary School as their DARE role model. Caleb Hamm shared his winning DARE essay. His essay stressed the harms of drugs and their commitment to lead a drug and violent free life. All students received a DARE t-shirt, pencil, certificate, and eraser.

Congratulations to Mrs. Somer Ojodeagua and all the Meadows of Dan Fifth Graders for their wonderful accomplishments. School officials wish to thank SRO Randy Clark, Captain Ward Stone, Sheriff Dan Smith and the Patrick County Sheriff's department for their continued support of Meadows of Dan Elementary School.

Ms. Jennifer Draughn with some of her upcoming fourth grade students

                Third Graders at Patrick Springs Primary School get ready for big changes and a new school next year as they prepare to leave PSPS and enter Hardin Reynolds Memorial School as fourth graders this fall. To welcome these new students, Hardin Reynolds hosted two visitation events. On Friday, April 20, the third grade teachers brought their students to HRMS to spend a couple of hours meeting their upcoming teachers, learning rules and procedures, and taking tours of the school led by the current fourth graders. The second event was the Third Grade Transition Night, held on Monday, April 23. The parents of third graders were invited to attend this session at HRMS, meet the fourth grade teachers and the principal, and take a tour of the school. Mrs. Fulcher welcomed the parents and students to the HRMS family. The fourth grade teachers went over pertinent information such as the supply list, classes, school personnel, and extra-curricular activities offered. The third graders were eager to show their future classrooms to their parents. Finally there was an informal meet-and-greet time at the end for parents to ask questions. Registration for Hardin Reynolds, as well as the rest of the Patrick County Public Schools will be held on July 31.

WRECK IN CARROLL COUNTY YESTERDAY

Driver escapes serious injuries when she backed out in front of an oncoming dump truck at the intersection of Lovell and US100 in Carroll County yesterday around 12:10 PM . The driver of the truck told me he saw her backing out of her driveway in to the road, he tried to miss her Ford SEL by locking down the dump truck and going to the right knowing he would hit the fence in the yard that he ended up in, he was thankful he didn't hurt her. The ford and truck were more than likely totaled in the collision but both drivers escaped serious en juries. The VSP are investigating the accident.

Wildfires Burning 7,000 Acres in Virginia

Five large wildfires and many more small ones are burning more than 7,000 acres across the Commonwealth today. While the bulk of the large fires are on US Forest Service land, the Virginia Department of Forestry, USFS, National Park Service along with numerous volunteer fire departments are out in force battling the blazes to protect lives and property.

“We’ve seen a tremendous uptick in fire activity today,” said John Miller, VDOF’s director of resource protection. “It would be fair to say that all 180 of our wildland firefighters are involved in suppression efforts today, and resources are at or near capacity.”

A combination of high winds, low humidity and no precipitation has enabled the wildfires to grow and spread quickly. Many of the fires are on steep, rocky terrain making it difficult for firefighters to reach the flames.

The Shipwreck Fire in Page County has already burned more than 1,850 acres and has the potential to reach 3,000 acres before it is controlled. Firefighters working this wildland fire have protected 125 homes and other structures thus far.

Ten structures are threatened in the Barbers Creek Fire burning in Alleghany and Craig counties. More than 1,500 acres have burned thus far, and the fire has the potential to reach 3,000 acres before being controlled.

The Alleghany Tunnel Fire has burned 2,500 acres and is 10 percent contained. Ten structures have been protected.

The Wolf Gap Fire in Shenandoah County has the potential to reach 6,000 acres – it has burned 550 acres so far.

The Rich Hole Fire in Alleghany County has closed parts of I-64 in both directions. The 400-acre blaze is threatening 10 structures.

Several smaller fires are burning in several counties across Virginia. A Red Flag Warning for much of the Commonwealth and the 4 p.m. Burn Law – which restricts burning until after 4 p.m. each day – remain in effect. Forestry officials are asking all Virginians not to burn for the next several days and to keep their cigarette butts in their vehicles.

The Virginia Department of Forestry protects and develops healthy, sustainable forest resources for Virginians. Headquartered in Charlottesville, the Agency has forestry staff members assigned to every county to provide citizen service and public safety protection across the Commonwealth. VDOF is an equal opportunity provider.
With nearly 16 million acres of forestland and more than 144,000 Virginians employed in forestry, forest products and related industries, Virginia forests provide more than $27.5 Billion annually in benefits to the Commonwealth.

BURNING TRASH LEADS TO STRUCTURE FIRE IN CANA YESTERDAY

ESL Parent Night at the Blue Ridge Public Library



Building relations and awareness of community resources were the focus of an English as a Second Language (ESL) parent night held on Thursday, March 29, 2012. At this meeting, parents toured the Blue Ridge Public Library and listened to a special guest speaker, Mr. Rob Wilson. Mr. Wilson works at Stuart Elementary School and served as a missionary in Mexico.

Together, ESL parents, Mr. Wilson, and ESL teachers, Diana Alonso & Deena Collins, discussed the importance of parent-teacher collaboration and ways to support their students throughout their school year. Following the presentation, there was a question and answer session, and parents applied for a library card for their families.

Patrick County Public Schools appreciates the opportunity to work with our local library to support the education of our children.
