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.
