At approximately 7:30 this morning, Montevideo Middle School, Peak View Elementary School, and Cub Run Elementary School lost power. Shortly thereafter, Montevideo also lost telephone service. At approximately 9:00am, power was restored at Montevideo as well as telephone service, but our internet server was still down. Finally, around 10:00am, our internet connection was also reestablished.
At no time during the outage were students cold or unsafe. In fact, breakfast was served and classroom instruction continued (just with a little less light than usual). The bright spots in this morning’s outage were our students and staff who handled it “glowingly.”
Due to the missed days and time recently because of inclement weather, Monday, February 23, 2015 will now be a full day of school (instead of a 1:00 p.m. dismissal as previously scheduled).
Expanding Your Horizons at JMU
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is the host for the “Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Conference” for young women on Saturday, March 21, 2015, in Memorial Hall from 9:30am-3:15pm.
EYH is an annual math and science conference for young women in grades 6-10. The purpose of the conference is to encourage young women to continue their studies in math and science, to provide them with female scientist role models, and to foster awareness of math and science-related careers. Fun, hands-on workshops will be offered by JMU faculty from the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Integrated Science and Engineering. The conference will also include an exciting keynote address by Dr. Kimberly Sellers from Georgetown University, lunch with JMU students, and a chemistry demonstration.
The conference is open to all young women in grades 6-10. Parents and teachers are invited to accompany their students to the conference. If you have family or friends that are eligible to attend, please encourage them to do so. For more information, see http://www.jmu.edu/mathstat/eyh or email email@example.com.
College Recruiting Seminar at SHS
- In an effort to educate our parents and athletes about athletic scholarships and the college recruiting process, Dynamite Sports will conduct a 45 minute long seminar entitled “Guiding the College-Bound Athlete” on Monday, March 2nd, at 7:30 p.m., in the Spotswood H.S. Auditorium.
- It is not too early to prepare for playing college sports, so learning what it takes to be a college athlete mentally, physically, and especially ACADEMICALLY, before they get to high school, will be a tremendous help! This seminar will help our parents to be more knowledgeable and REALISTIC about athletic scholarships and the recruiting process. It will also teach them how to find the right college and where to look for financial aid/scholarships.
Track practice will begin March 16th. Students in grades 6-8 are eligible and MUST HAVE a current VHSL physical on file with the nurse and be in good academic standing prior to participating. Please contact Coach Kline for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
