Fall Festival is our largest Fundraiser of the school year and we are excited to continue this tradition while also bringing some new elements to the festival this year! Did you know that some of our Fall Festival preparations are already underway?! Yes, it’s true. How can I help, you ask? We are looking for individuals to coordinate Food, Silent Auction, and Children’s Auction events. Have ideas for other ways to support us? We are all ears and want to know how you’d like to jump in on Fall Festival planning and preparation. Email us as email@example.com and let’s start chatting!
Agnor Hurt has the opportunity for 2 representatives to serve on the Woodbrook Redistricting Advisory Committee which will begin to meet this fall 2017. Please consider applying for a position on this committee. Applications (due this Friday, July 14) and additional information can be found at
The school division has experienced enrollment growth in the urban ring area adding over 250 students in the last 5 years in the four elementary schools whose boundaries surround the city of Charlottesville: Agnor-Hurt, Cale, Greer, and Woodbrook. This growth has exceeded the building capacity of those facilities. Greer is experiencing the most significant overcrowding as a result of this growth. A redistricting study was conducted in 2015 to evaluate more immediate options for Greer Elementary prior to additional seats being built. No solution was found with the conclusion that additional capacity needed to be constructed. To this end, an addition onto Woodbrook Elementary was approved and is currently under construction. This project is intended to provide relief to Woodbrook, Agnor-Hurt, and Greer. It is planned that the addition will be complete and open for the 2018-19 school year.
Happy Mid-Summer Greetings Agnor Hurt Families!
We hope that you are enjoying an amazing fun filled summer and finding a bit of time for some rest and relaxation as well. Our PTO Board has begun its work to ensure that we have a wonderful year ahead of us filled with events designed around our mission: To promote an active and open partnership within the Agnor-Hurt Elementary School community in order to inspire students to fully realize their academic, social and emotional potential while nurturing their cultural and community awareness.
Meet the 2017-18 Board Members:
President- Sheila Chrobak
Vice President- Susan Scott
Treasurer- Meredith Curs
Secretary- Dana Washington
Communications Chair- Safia Wentling
Parent Council Representative- Sharon Fix
But our PTO Board isn’t complete! We are looking to expand our board in order to have a greater reach across our entire Agnor Hurt community. Would you consider participating as a Grade Level Representative (ensuring that teachers and families in your “wing” of the school are able to actively engage in the PTO)? Or how about as Fundraising Coordinator (coordinating all of our traditional and new fundraisers)? What about Volunteer Coordinator (making sure that parents have a way to share their special interests and skills within all our volunteer opportunities)? Want to find out more about how you can participate? Email Sheila Chrobak at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a such a wonderfully diverse community with so many varied skill sets and talents and there is truly something for everyone when it comes to PTO participation. Fill our our General Volunteer Form and we will look forward to connecting with you. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities throughout the year and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us to share how you would like to contribute. Many hands make for lighter work and a truly active and engaged community!
