Patrick Henry High School Students Create Quipus and Zampoñas
The Spanish three students at Patrick Henry High School recently concluded a unit study of the Incan empire. They read about and discussed the language, food, and history of the Incan culture.
At the end of the unit, the students created their own quipus and zampoñas. A quipu is a series of different colored strings with various knots used in the past by the Incas to record and remember a variety of facts and information. A zampoña is a pan flute used by many of the indigenous people throughout the Andes Mountains. Students made their quipus from yarn to reflect important numbers in their lives such as their age and addresses. Their zampoñas were made from cardboard and large straws. It was a great way to end an interesting and educational unit!
Congratulations to the Virginia schools that were announced on Monday, September 29, for national recognition as a 2013-2014 Blue Star School by Working in Support of Education (W!se). A school testing ten or more students must have achieved a 75% passing rate on the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification Test and have a majority of students on a given grade level take the test OR have the students who took it achieve an average score of 80% or higher. Of the 284 schools on the national listing, 52% of those (148) were Virginia schools. The Blue Star schools will be honored at the annual MoneyPOWER Conference for Financial Literacy in New York City on November 4.

Male Rebel of The Month - Tim P.
"Tim is often the first person up to help others in my class. He puts others before self. When asked to give for a service project, Tim gave my first donation. He is sensitive to the needs of others and is very helpful in class. His giving nature and commitment to helping others in class embodies those qualities that a Rebel of the Month should represent and stand for. Tim is the first in my door every day to tell me hello and often the last face I see before I go home."
Female Rebel of The Month - Leslie D.
"Leslie is very well behaved in class. She works hard to complete her work and do it well. She is very responsible and is always willing to help her peers even when others might get frustrated with the same option. She performs not only academically, but she also performs outside of the classroom with sharing her trades. Her attendance is not perfect, but very close to it, especially in comparison to many of her peers. She truly is a pleasure to have in class for her responsibility, focus, and respect."
