Spring break has arrived! After months of hard work since winter break with very few surprise snow days, I know everyone is excited to recharge this week before we return on Tuesday, April 18 for our final 7 weeks of the school year. Spring brings a unique energy to our schools as we celebrate successes, compete on our fields, and bring closure to the months of engagement we experience each day in GCPS.
I am pleased to announce that Goochland Public Schools was recognized last week at a Richmond Technology Council reception as a finalist for the “innovation in utilization-public sector” award for our recent initiative to purchase and install the state of the art Informacast system in our elementary schools. GCPS was chosen from among many nominees in various categories as a finalist, and was one of only 2 public school entities recognized. Please vote for GCPS on Twitter for the @rvatech People’s Choice Award-use the hashtag #geekprom! Thank you to Peter Martin and our outstanding operational technology staff for their work in laying the foundation for innovation in our schools.
Our students, our staff, our families, and our community continue to distinguish our district in and out of the classroom. Remember to follow our Twitter (@glndschools), Instagram (goochlandschools), and Facebook (@GoochlandCountySchools) for up to date news and information about the great things happening in GCPS.
I am looking forward to an exciting and successful finish of this 2017-2018 school year and to even greater things to come in GCPS in the months ahead. I hope you and your family have a safe and relaxing spring break!
