It's hard to believe, but Spring Break is over, and we're into the final stretch of the year!
Thanks to all those who joined us for the educational forum on anxiety and to Dr. Robert Falk of Dominion Behavioral Healthcare who led the presentation and guided us through a mindfulness exercise.
Color Splash just around the corner! On April 29, we hope you will join us for our 5th Annual Color Splash Run which is a 2.5 mile non-competitive run/walk around the school. Online registration is available here on the website. Go to the homepage and click the registration button. All funds raised go back to the school and to the Carrie Roarty Family Fund. We hope to see you there!
The PTSO encourages the James River Community to observe Earth Day throughout the month of April. Recycle old clothing, bags, linens and shoes by dropping them in the Clothing to Cash bin in the teacher parking lot. Please don't let these items go to landfills!
Keep in mind that it's not too late to support the PTSO. If you have not yet joined, I encourage you to do so. JRHS PTSO's overarching goal is to support the entire James River community--teachers, students and parents. Our school can only reach its full potential when the community is actively engaged in all aspects of its operation. If you haven't joined yet, I hope you will do so and help make James River High School the best it can be!

High school is an important time to be engaged in your child's educational experience. There are ways to be involved, no matter how much time you have to offer.
