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.
