After each HERO received training for the reading and math tutoring program, they participated in a "Meet and Greet" activity with their student(s). HEROES meet with students once a week for 30 minutes for tutoring and mentoring. If you are interested in volunteering in this program, please contact the school or school board office for an application.
Cople's Pre-K and Head Start students visited the Pumpkin Patch at Belvedere Plantation in Fredericksburg on Thursday, October 17th. Students had an opportunity to see a few farm animals, take a Hay Ride, and pick a pumpkin to bring home. The crisp fall breeze did not stop our students from having a great time!
