Celebrating 110 Years of Girl Scouts: One Girl at a Time 🎂
Questions contact: Theresa Henderson [email protected]
My family are new residents of Henrico and our zone school happens to be Dumbarton Elementary school. We are very excited to get involved, and trying to plan for childcare options (aftercare). We have a little girl who will be attending Dumbarton in the fall (hopefully) and an infant (who will need daycare). I was hoping maybe the parents in the groups had some suggestions for affordable care options that could accommodate both.

Appreciate any suggestions!

Kind regards
Katie ☺️

Reading is the cornerstone of academic success. Unfortunately, the number of students in Virginia who can't read proficiently by 4th grade has increased as a result of the Pandemic. Join Virginia PTA, Virginia Association of Elementary School Principals, and Decoding Dyslexia Virginia for a webinar on January 9th with Dr. Emily Solari and Delegate Carrie Coyner to learn about the multi-pronged approach Virginia is using to improve reading proficiency.

In this webinar parents will learn what evidence-based literacy instruction is (and is not), what they can look for in the classroom, and practical reading strategies they can use at home to support their struggling reader. We'll also discuss implementation of the 2021 Virginia Literacy Act, how it's changing the way reading is being taught across Virginia, and how you can advocate for improved reading resources during the 2023 General Assembly Session.

The DES school counseling team is elated to be back for a spectacular school year. They are implementing a wonderful after school program called “Girls on the Run”. This program is a great way to help build young girls’ self-esteem, make meaningful connections, and promote physical activity all in one. This program accepts 8-20 girls and run for 10 weeks with a commitment of meeting after school twice a week for 1.5 hours. At the end of the season there is a celebratory, non-competitive 5K in December at Bryant Park. They are looking for a head coach, assistant coaches, and substitute coaches for the team here at Dumbarton. You do not have to be athletic to coach. One of the coaches must be CPR/First Aid certified. If someone is interested in coaching and is not CPR/First Aid certified you can reach out to GOTR staff at [email protected] and they will help point you in the right direction regarding that process. Coach training will be held on Saturday, September 10 from 10:00a.m. – 3:30p.m. In addition to that training, there will be online modules to complete as well. Anyone interested in volunteering, should email Brianna Hodge at [email protected].
