At 7 p.m. on February 25, make sure to head over to Tomahawk Creek Middle School to celebrate the Chesterfield County’s Core Vales Initiative and hear Richmond’s celebrity storyteller, Slash Coleman give the keynote address.
In 1999 Chesterfield County Schools adopted a Core Value Initiative program. Based on the book, Educating for Character by Thomas Luckona, this program promotes safety, respect for property, parent productivity and good work ethic. In addition, Luckona believes schools should provide more teaching time, a caring school environment and a more positive structure in schoolwork. The program is designed to ward off violence, vandalism, stealing cheating, peer cruelty, bigotry and other self destructive behaviors.
The fun-filled event will include a concert perfect for families, teachers and children of all ages. (more…)
