March 29, 2019 — 8:30am – 12:30pm
This annual fun-filled day will feature representatives from many different careers in our area. Students, be sure to dress in your best attire – DRESS FOR SUCCESS!
Wilder Middle School students enjoyed an exciting day collaborating to make hovercrafts. The gym at The Eastern Henrico Recreation Center was transformed into a make-shift hovercraft laboratory. The students spent the morning working together in teams building the hovercrafts and then put them to the test in the afternoon. The Hovercraft Project teaches STEAM principles to students through fun, participatory, project-based learning.
Save the date for Tuesday, March 19th and join us at Henrico High School from 5:30pm – 8:30pm for an evening of information for all HCPS parents!
“A division-wide night for all parents to talk with vendors about academic support, summer camps, college camps, summer jobs, adult career opportunities, and numerous other resources.”
