9th & 10th Grade Students: The 2020 Virginia Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) will be held July 9th - 12th in downtown Richmond. This program is for high school freshmen and sophomores that have a 3.0 GPA or higher and demonstrate leadership qualities. The purpose of our program is to engage students into learning about our history, government and how to be a better and active citizen. Our Summit includes a tour of the Capitol and historical sites. The students will participate in debates and speeches about our Constitutional Rights. At the end of the Summit, some scholarships are awarded to students and one student is selected, as the Virginia representative, to attend the National YES in Washington, DC next year. Please see Mrs. Richardson for more information.
Seniors: Have you ever wondered what actually goes on inside a bank? Do you need $7,500 to help pay for your college tuition? If so, consider participating in Bank Day. On this day, you will spend a day in a bank shadowing a banker in their daily duties. After the day, you will write an essay based on your experience. These essays will be judged by bankers and thirteen scholarships will be awarded to the winners. Bank day will take place on Tuesday, March 24th & Wednesday, March 25th. You must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher to be eligible to participate. Sign up with Mrs. Hall in guidance by March 10th if you would like to participate in the program.
