The Virginia Department of Education recently held a “Kids Safe Online Poster Contest”. With the help of Stephanie Rowe, the art teacher at Lewis and Clark Elementary School, five entries were submitted in the K-5 category. Mrs. Rowe spoke to several classes about being safe online and had students illustrate what they learned.
Congratulations to Dihana, 3rd grader in Ms. Dockett’s class. Her poster was selected at the state level as a winner in the K-5 category.
Dihana’s poster has been submitted to the national Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness poster contest. If the poster is selected as a national finalist, it will be displayed in the 2021 National “Stay Safe Online” calendar and may also be used in campaigns to raise awareness among children of all ages about internet and computer safety.
The winner of the CCPS District Spelling Bee was Joshua McVey from MES. The runner-up was Evan Lin from LCES. Joshua will move on to represent CCPS in the Fredericksburg Regional Spelling Bee in March. We wish him the best of luck and congratulate all spelling bee participants!

Autumn Kirven, former CHS student, spoke to the CMS National Junior Honor Society students on her experience as a Virginia Tech sophomore and her recent study abroad trip to Switzerland. Autumn shared information on the college search process, financial aid, clubs/organizations, college admission requirements, and choosing the right classes to pursue a major. On her first plane trip ever, Autumn had the opportunity to travel to seven different countries. This adventure has given her the inspiration to pursue a career as a doctor. The NJHS students were very engaged and appreciated the information that Autumn shared with them to become college ready.
