R.E.B. Nominations Now Being Accepted:  The R.E.B. Awards for Teaching Excellence were established in 1988 to recognize public school teachers who have distinguished themselves by their inspiring classroom performance. The R.E.B. awards are designed to identify, recognize, and support teaching excellence in the metropolitan Richmond public school systems. Grants ranging from $4,000 to $12,000 each will be given to approximately fifteen teachers to support professional development activities. Recipients will be required to share educational ideas and experiences with fellow teachers.

This program has been developed by The Community Foundation and is funded by the R.E.B. Foundation. The nomination process will continue as it has in the past – On-line at: http://www.tcfrichmond.org/receive/nominate-an-individual-for-an-award/

Nominations can come from a fellow teacher, staff member, students, or parents. School principals are excluded from nominating.

Deadline for nominations is February 22, 2016 at 5 p.m.

From our Counseling Center:

  • During the spring awards assembly, we recognize seniors who have earned the Eagle Scout designation or the Gold Award.  Please send names of students who have achieved these honors to counselor Margaret Roane at MRoane@hcps.us, or call our Counseling Center at 365-8020.
  • If you have a student planning to attend college in 2016-17, you need to complete a FAFSA, Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  This process can be confusing, so help is available in our Counseling Center. Spaulding, GRASP financial aid advisor, is available on Tuesdays to meet with seniors and/or their parent(s)/guardian(s) to discuss and complete the FAFSA.  She also can help with the CSS Profile, if needed.  You can make an appointment to see Mrs. Spalding by calling our Counseling Center at 365-8020.
