Petersburg Primary concluded the March of Dimes spirit week with a parade and balloon release Friday, Nov. 3. The school raised $2605.00 and was named the first place school in Chesterfield County School District for the highest total.

Through a grant offered to schools in SC, our 4K parents were afforded the opportunity to have a laptop computer and Internet access (if needed) provided for them so that their children can benefit from home usage of the Waterford Early Learning online preschool reading curriculum. The students who are currently participating took a pre-assessment Oct. 28 while their parents were trained in the requirements of the program. We are looking forward to great gains in these students' preschool reading skills!
The first Eagle Effort award winners for 2017-2018 were announced this week. These students were nominated by their teachers for showing extra effort and perseverance in their learning. Congratulations little eagles!
