COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Carolyn Crinkley, a sixth-grade mathematics teacher at Colonial Heights Middle School, was surprised in her classroom on Thursday afternoon as she was named the division’s Teacher of the Year for the 2018-19 school year.
Crinkley’s superiors, including Superintendent Dr. Joseph Cox Jr., Assistant Superintendent Haidee Napier, School Board Chair Mike Yates, CHMS Principal Bill Hortz and Instructional Specialist Joseph Douglas, showed up to surprise Crinkley in front of her sixth-grade math class with the announcement and a bouquet of flowers.
Recognized for her ability to make kids think on a deeper level, Crinkley originally taught seventh-grade math at CHMS for 12 years before leaving when she had a baby. She left with the intention of only being out of school for a year, which turned into 13.

Dear Parents and Guardians:
During the summer of 2017 the Colonial Heights School Board unanimously approved the 10 Point Grading Scale for implementation during the 2018-2019 school year. At the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, Colonial Heights Public Schools will be transitioning to a 10 Point Grading Scale for students in grades 3-12. An important part of the transition is making sure that parents and students are fully informed prior to the change and are provided time to ask questions about the new grading scale and how it might impact their student.
In preparation, the school division has evaluated different scales and options in te1ms of how grades are weighted to determine the best fit for our schools. Please see the reverse side of the letter for information about the new grading scale and topics related to grading.
Should you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the School Administration Office or your child's school. We appreciate your interest and understanding during this transition.
Dr. Joseph O. Cox, Jr.

We would like to introduce you to a new system our school has acquired to help protect your children, called V-soft. V-soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer more monitored environment for the students.
When visitors, volunteers or contractors check-in, or parents come to pick up students, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system. The system has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of the campus.
We feel certain this will help us keep our campus a little safer, and ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at the school. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

2017-2018 Is Coming to a Close
It is hard to believe our school year is coming to an end. 2017-2018 academic year will soon be in the past. Parents, we hope you will work with us to help your student do their best!
Students, how will YOU finish? Will you make that extra effort to review for your SOL tests? Will you stay focused in class and keep your grades up? Are you ready to finish this school year with your best possible effort?
We are working hard to prepare for semester and end-of-year SOL tests in Math, English, Science and Civics. We have upcoming events in Drama, Band, SCA, FCA, FCCLA, and the other teams and clubs. The 8th Grade Dance, 8th Grade DC Field Trip, 8th Grade Picnic and Grades 6, 7 and 8 Awards Assemblies are only a few weeks away!
Parents, continue to stay involved in your student’s education. Check their grades on PowerSchool, look in their binder, check their agenda, and review their homework. Your involvement really makes the difference in your child’s success! Let’s finish strong and have a great summer!
William V. Hortz
