Middle School News

Dear 5th grade parents,

IB Applications will be available on my Schoology page for  you to fill out at the end of the day today. If you have any questions or cannot access the folder, please feel free to email me at ehvalenta@henrico.k12.va.us. Please note, if your child is in our Three Chopt Zone Center, his/her home school is NOT Three Chopt, but his/her neighborhood school. You will need to note that your child is on a variance to attend Three Chopt and list your home school.

As always, I am here if you have any questions!

Mrs. Valenta
