A Message from Mr. Gilmore

What is the purpose of school?
That may sound like a simple or even a silly question, but I think it is a question that involves careful consideration.

Following is a list of how some people might answer the question:
It is a place for learning; it is a place for socialization; it is a place for sports and other activities; and there is a host of other possible answers.

None of these answers is incorrect. We spend the bulk of our time in class instructing, assessing, modifying lessons, and re-teaching difficult concepts. We offer clubs, dances, games, and sports. All of these items are important elements in a school culture.

At a recent leadership conference I attended, the presenter stated "School is supposed to be for kids.''
And often, kids are hurting.

He gave these statistics-40 percent of the homeless population are kids with their moms; 20-25 percent of all kids are in poverty; eight percent of kids are being raised by their grandparents.

Bullying, fighting, drugs, and violence sometimes dominate the airways and social media as schools struggle to deal with these evils.

At Colonial Heights Middle School we are not immune from these statistics.

But I have seen an inspirational response from this community.
Some parents and grandparents have donated money so that kids who could not afford to go on a field trip could go. People have purchased shoes, backpacks, and other school supplies for those less fortunate. Folks have taken athletes to practice and games who otherwise might not have had a ride. 

We have a benevolent account here that has paid rent and electric bills for students' families, and has been used to buy clothes, food, gifts, and computers for kids.

Above all, I have seen our students at lunch ask to move to be near someone who might be eating alone. I have seen our students welcome new students with kindness and acceptance.
In the grand scheme of things, I think that is the real purpose of our school; generosity, love, and acts of service.
May that be the mission of Colonial Heights Middle School.
