Partners in Education
Spotsylvania County Public Schools Preschool Programs would like to recognize our partners in education. The generosity of our partners in education is greatly appreciated.
Fredericksburg Area Service League
The Fredericksburg Area Service League provides the SCPS Head Start program with a grant to support the I'm Moving, I'm Learning Bike Rodeo Family Night. The grant provides new bike helmets for all the children enrolled in the Head Start program. Members of the Fredericksburg Area Service League volunteer during the event assisting children and families with a picnic dinner and assisting children with adjusting their bike helmets to ensure a secure, safe fit.
The Fredericksburg Area Service League provides the SCPS Head Start and Virginia Preschool Initiative programs with a grant to fund a field trip to Belvedere Plantation. Education and learning occurs both in and outside the classroom. This grant provides the children the opportunity to experience hands-on learning activities as they learn how pumpkins grow, feed farm animals and more.
The Fredericksburg Area Service League provides the SCPS Head Start and Virginia Preschool Initiative programs with volunteers reading in the classroom. The volunteers also provide each child in the programs with a new book to take home. This allows for reading to continue at home.
The University of Mary Washington's C.O.A.R.
The University of Mary Washington's C.O.A.R. (Community Outreach and Resources) provides each Head Start child with a wrapped holiday shoe box. Each box contains a hat, pair of gloves, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a small toy.
The C.O.A.R. office is facilitated by students attending UMW . All donations are made by UMW students.
Riverbend High School's F.F.A.
The Future Farmers of America (F.F.A.) located at Riverbend High School provides each child enrolled in the Virginia Preschool Initiative program with a wrapped holiday shoe box. Each box contains a hat, pair of gloves, toothbrush, toothpaste and a small toy.
The shoe box drive is facilitated by the high school students with oversight of the instructor and club sponsor.
