When asked about something that happened recently that made him smile, he said, "I was with a special needs student who was roaming through the building (I was trailing for safety), and the student entered the auditorium, got onto the stage and went into a performance (dancing, singing, facial and arm expressions). It was the cutest thing during what could have been deemed as an annoying situation." When asked if he could visit anywhere in the world, where would he go? It was no surprise that he answered Hartlepool, England, his hometown. Dr. Johnson moved here at the age of 11, leaving lots of family behind. He loves to visit England as often as possible. Mrs. Foltz says it was no surprise that she became a teacher, as she used to "teach" her stuffed animals as a little girl. When asked about something kind someone had done for her recently, she said a junior from Luray High School brought her Dunkin to school, and it made her day. Thank you Dr. Johnson and Mrs. Foltz for all you give to the Luray Middle School Community. You are appreciated!

This afternoon the PCPS central office received a phone call from an unknown individual who did not make a direct threat to anyone in the division but caused concern among the division staff. Out of an abundance of caution, staff contacted the Page County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) and Luray Police Department (LPD) who responded immediately. Appropriate steps were taken at PCPS schools to continue to ensure student and staff safety. LPD and PCSO personnel were present at all schools throughout the day and at dismissal. There will be additional law enforcement present at evening activities in the division. The LPD and the PCSO will also provide a continued presence at all schools tomorrow. We take all concerns very seriously and will continue to work collaboratively to ensure student and staff safety at all times.
Mrs. Meadows, 7th grade English Teacher at Page County Middle School, asked students to pick a word for 2022, and then they were posted on her Brag Board.
5th graders at Springfield Elementary are learning about electricity. Students started the unit by exploring static electricity. The students charged a produce bag with static electricity by rubbing a piece of felt on the produce bag and the balloon. Once charged, they threw the produce bag up and held the balloon under the bag. Having both materials positively charged, they repel each other, allowing the balloon to control the produce bag suspended in air.

When asked about a kind or thoughtful thing that someone had done for her recently, she said someone wrote her note saying how they appreciated how she handled a situation. "My love language is words of affirmation, so reading words of thoughtfulness/encouragement is the best gift anyone could give in my book." Mr. Corey Harlow, is in his 1st year as an Assistant Principal. He says if he could give advice to his younger self he would say not to worry so much about the future, but rather to live life to the fullest, in the moment, and always to follow my passion. As we grow up it is important that we keep playing, that we keep laughing, and that we ALWAYS have fun. Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new. You have the choice to make it great day, or not. The choice to be happy is ultimately yours. He says when he was younger he was always playing school. "In my mind, teaching is a calling to serve. Everyday I have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of another and impact students' futures. The job may not always be easy, but every single day it is guaranteed to be rewarding."
