  • Do you have children who either live in or frequently visit your home? If so, it’s important for you to know that Lead paint is dangerous, unhealthy, and can severely harm the brain and nervous system development of children under 6 years old. Lead paint is still found in many of the City’s older Northside Homes.

    The Richmond Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Program is a partnership between the City of Richmond’s Department of Housing and Community Development and the non-profit project:HOMES that provides federal funds for free testing and repairs for homes with at-risk children or pregnant women. Homes that children visit for at least 6 hours a week can also qualify.

    View the letter linked below for more information about how to apply for the program:

  •  Clip It General Mills wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit America’s schools – and so, Box Tops for Education™ was born. The program has been such a huge success and by 1998, more than 30,000 schools were clipping Box Tops and earning cash to buy the things they needed: books, computers, playground equipment and more.

    In 2006, for the first time, non-food brands began to participate; now families could clip Box Tops from Ziploc®, Hefty®, Kleenex® and Scott® products, too. As the program expanded, school earnings increased. By 2010, schools across the nation had earned over $320 million.

    George Washington Carver Elementary can use the money for anything it needs! Computers, books, and playground equipment are just some of the ways schools have chosen to use the funds raised through Box Tops for Education. Bring in your box tops to the school office anytime!

  • RPS Direct Update - August 13, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, If you didn't get a chance to catch RPS Live! last night, I encourage you to carve out some time this weekend to do so. I was joined by four wonderful guests: Harry Hughes, our Chief Schools Officer; Cherita Sears, Principal of Thomas Jefferson HS; Latonya Waller, Principal of Boushall MS; and James Gordon, Principal of Oak Grove-Bellemeade ES. We discussed how RPS will be focusing on our students' social and emotional well-being during our virtual semester. I'm so grateful to these leaders – and the many others they represent – for truly demonstrating what it means to #LeadWithLove. With great appreciation, Jason Click above to continue reading!

A HUGE thank you to the School Board for prioritizing these new schools in our facilities plan, to Mayor Stoney and the City Council for introducing and enacting the Meals Tax to fund the construction, and to the public for eating out. We couldn't be more grateful! With great appreciation, Jason Click above to continue reading!
