"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.”
As we enter the last grading period of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the faculty, students, and parents for all of the hard work that they have been putting forth. Students are really making strides, and I see wonderful lessons every day as I walk through the building.
Also, SOL testing for third, fourth, and fifth graders will be beginning very soon at the end of May. Students will be reviewing for these tests every day, so it is very important that students try their best to attend school every day. Attendance is so important for a successful education, and we strive to have 100% attendance every single day. Each month we will be having attendance rewards for those students who come to school every day.
Thank you again for the effort you put in every day here at Barack Obama Elementary School. Keep up the great work!
Mrs. Jennifer K. Moore, Principal
