The process for applying to the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School is transitioning to an online application. The one page application form will be submitted through ZippSlip beginning this year. Students must use their guardian’s account to complete the application. If your student receives a letter from their school counselor (Distributed October 10th and 11th) or you have received a School Messenger call or email that they are eligible to apply to MLGWS then they have already been granted access to the ZippSlip application. The ZippSlip application will be available on October 16, 2017. If your student did not receive a letter or you do not see the MLGWS Application as an option when you login to ZippSlip please review the Criteria for Applying document on the web at http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/mlwgs/maggie-l-walker-governor-school/ for further information. If your student does not meet the criteria listed but would like to be considered as an applicant, your student must come to school counseling to discuss this with Mrs. Sharpe. Students wishing to apply that do not meet criteria will be required to write a letter before November 3, 2017. If you feel like your student met the requirements for Governor’s School and did not receive a letter, please speak with Mrs. Sharpe. Please call or email Mrs. Sharpe (804-364-0837, email@example.com) for instructions for accessing Zippslipp if you are unable to log in. Deadline to complete the online application is December 1, 2017.

Five Henrico Middle Schools battled it out on the hardwood recently at Glen Allen H.S. Not just for a trophy but to help raise money to defeat a disease that affects almost everyone. Click here to watch the video.
We continue to collect Box Tops for the General Mills Box Tops for Education program. Our school library earns $.10 for each Box Top we turn in. We have been able to purchase iPads, tripod adaptors, art supplies for projects, and other educational items for our students to use in the library with this money. This year, we are working towards creating a “curiosity cubby” in the library with activities to “Spark the Curiosity” of our students. We would like to add things such as Makey Makeys, green screen and stop motion animation materials, Bloxels, Gizmos and Gadgets kits, and more. Help us build this by sending in those Box Tops.
It’s the beginning of the sick season…allergies, colds, flu, stomach viruses are active in our area right now. Please keep in mind that students should not be in school if they have the following:

- Are unable to focus due to: pain, chronic health condition, and acute illness.
- Has flu-like illness (with or without fever) — headache, tired, cough, aches, weakness, sore throat.
Please be prompt when picking up your ill or injured child in order to minimize their chance of spreading or acquiring a contagious illness.
