If you’re looking for things to do with your children during Winter Break, look no further! Our community partner, Common Sense Education, has compiled a list of safe resources to help. Below you’ll find links to activities, movies and books to help your family pass the time together.
A new Matoaca-area elementary school is scheduled open off Magnolia Green Parkway in the U.S. 360 West corridor in fall 2022. School Board Policy 6160 gives the Board the prerogative to name schools and identifies opportunities for public engagement in this process.
Students attending the new school primarily are expected to come from two existing schools: Winterpock and Grange Hall elementary schools. Based on the recent practice of involving the impacted school communities in the naming process, PTA leaders at Winterpock and Grange Hall elementary schools reviewed submitted names and helped narrow the list for School Board consideration.
Potential names for the new 900-student elementary school were solicited from the public from Oct. 26-Nov. 6. Nearly 500 suggestions were received. A PTA committee involved in the review of submitted names forwarded three recommended names to the School Board for review:
While names including the word “Magnolia” were a top vote-getter when combined, the committee recommended that an inclusive school community could be built by avoiding naming a school after a specific neighborhood. The committee also appreciated suggestions received regarding naming the school after Rebecca S. Branch, the first Black female principal in Chesterfield County. However, Ms. Branch died in 2019, meaning such action would not meet the policy-related requirement of a person being deceased for 10 years prior to a school being named for them.
Residents are able to provide input on the three potential names through Dec. 17. Click here to share input.
