Henrico, Va. Jan. 17, 2019 – Who is the special teacher in your life? The REB Awards for Teaching Excellence provide a tangible, public way to recognize outstanding teachers in Henrico County Public Schools – and give them the means to continue growing.

Nominations are invited from parents, students, educators and the community at large. Award recipients have earned graduate degrees, climbed mountains, traced their ancestors and met peers from around the world – all to reignite their own passion for learning and to pass it on to their students.

Nominations must be made online. A letter in support of the nomination must be written by another individual and submitted online with the nomination.

Who:The Community Foundation invites nominations from students, parents, colleagues, school staff and administrators (except for the school principal), and the community at large.

Recycling at Adams

Recycling is a priority at Jacob L. Adams Elementary.  We have a team of students committed to being responsible stewards of our environment.  Each day, they collect recycling from different classrooms and areas of the school and make sure it is properly placed in our recycling bin outside.  Two of our students, David and Tymir have really taken the lead with this project.  We commend them for their efforts!
