5th Grade Students Visit Virginia Wesleyan College
For our Academic Reception, students in 5th grade took a field trip to Virginia Wesleyan College. The 21 students, with some parents, were given a tour of the college campus. There is a global understanding that our students must have high expectations and self-confidence with regard to plans for their future which may include college and or career plans. A college campus tour makes sense. We want to hit the ground running with giving our students a sense of future. We will also be travelling to Tidewater Community College and Old Dominion University.

Virginia Opera Comes to Luxford Elementary
The Virginia Opera is coming to Luxford Elementary School on Wednesday, November 26th. They will be performing The Empress and the Nightingale for all students in grades 1-5 at 9:00 in the cafeteria. The Empress and the Nightingale is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's classic children's story of a small bird sharing her gift of song. With a cast of three performing original music, this opera vividly teaches the value of music performed live and how humans cannot control nature.
