Mrs. McConnell has been teaching for 26 years. She has taught in California and a Department of Defense School in Japan. Her first 24 years were in the elementary school setting. After attending Old Dominion University and earning a degree in Library Science, Mrs. McConnell joined the Luxford family as the library media specialist.

Unique Opportunity Coming to Interested Dragon Parents and Students
Luxford Dragon Quilting Bee, a partnership with the Tidewater Quilters' Guild.
As participants (50 maximum) learn the art of quilting from experienced guild members, we will be transforming a collection of Luxford Dragon t-shirts into our own Luxford School Community Quilt.
The Board of the local Tidewater Quilters' Guild is doing the project as a community service project, a group that serves about 300 adult members, male and female.
There will be a modest charge for participants to help defray overall costs of the project. Materials will be provided for registered participants. Any funds left when the project is complete will be donated to the school art gallery funding.
Registration information will be coming home in early January.
Cost: $5.00 for one parent and one Luxford student (only open to parent and child pairs) $3.00 for an individual staff member
Dates/Time: Jan 8 and 22; Feb 12 and 26; Mar 12 and 26 Sessions will begin promptly at 6:00 pm and end by 7:30 pm.
Location: Luxford Cafe
Prior experience is NOT needed; interest and excitement about the project required!

Get Lost in a Book
Phyllis C. Hunter in her book, It's Not Complicated!, refers to getting lost in a book as an intrinsic joy. We have proof that all Luxford Dragons are getting lost in a book. Come try and find your child's picture in our display!
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.
