Beat the “Summer Slide”

May 20, 2019

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.

For details, resources and lots more ways to foster reading this summer, go to HCPS’ summer reading page.

HCPS-TV stopped by Mr. Dunson’s class as he engaged his students with a cool math lesson on Theoretical and Experimental Math problems

VIDEO: Hovercraft Project

March 6, 2019

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.
