"Seeing the students’ excitement in designing and building their own app is what the Coders program is all about,” said Paul Busick, VP, Card Technology and site sponsor for Capital One Coders in Richmond. “Watching these students from Henderson and Elkhardt-Thompson showcase what they have built, the fun they had, and the skills they learn gives technology an even brighter future."
"The solar project will bring the three E’s to Richmond Public Schools - education, environment, and economics,” said Wendy Fewster, RPS Sustainability Associate. “Teachers and students will benefit from new STEM learning opportunities, we will generate and use clean energy, and save millions of dollars for RPS."
“This exhibit has created dialogue throughout the city with more and more people willing to share their own experiences during the civil rights movement,” said Mr. Person. “The RPS alumni who are featured in the exhibit faced many challenges but persevered through the times and have blazed a path for current and future students.”
“I am very proud of Kanye,” said Ms. Jennifer Moore, Principal of Barack Obama Elementary School. “He wrote an excellent essay and we’re thrilled that his hard work has been recognized.”
I want to take this opportunity to welcome our students and staff back to “The Strong” for another wonderful school year. We are so proud of our students accomplishments this past school year and look forward to many more accomplishments and accolades. To name a few: Accredited with Conditions, 36 Top Scholars with 8 million dollars in scholarship money, one student with 1 million dollars in scholarship money, one student receiving an Associate’s Degree (first at Armstrong), and four State Championships in Track & Field.
Our goal is to ensure that every child is happy and successful at Armstrong where we believe that all stakeholders play a key role in the success of children. We want to encourage our community and parents to continue to support our students, teaching students that education is the avenue for unlocking their dreams. The child who knows that his/her school family is interested and supports the school programs will almost always have fewer problems in school and will enjoy greater success.
The lines of communication remain open and we are readily available for assistance to ensure optimum success for students. The Armstrong culture and climate improves daily where we continuously echo the pursuit for greatness which involves sincere effort, a humble heart, and the desire to improve others which can raise the station of an ordinary individual into one of extraordinary achievement.
Again, we welcome you to the 2018-2019 academic year of Armstrong High School where, “Greatness is the Rightful Destiny of Every Person.”
Dr. Willie J. Bell, Jr., Principal
