Rockbridge Education Foundation

Many thanks to the Rockbridge Educational Foundation for their continued support of our school. Maury River Middle School has received four grants though the foundation.

Music Alive! –  This magazine subscription offers feature articles covering a wide variety of musical genres, styles, and history plus full lesson plans and a CD.  It is designed to use music to inspire teenagers to be passionate about learning.

Picture Me Scrapbooks – Scrapbooks designed to highlight and preserve student accomplishments throughout their middle school years were purchased for all in-coming sixth graders.

Visual Presenters for Each Grade Level English class –  “Elmos” (document projectors) were purchased to allow teachers to showcase student work, to demonstrate directions for activities, and to show pictures and pages from literature with ease.  They facilitate learning and increase student interest in peer editing, revising written work, etc.

World Beat Workshop – This performance for the entire student body, funded jointly with the Virginia Commission for the Arts, exposed students to history, geography, cultural background of American, South American, and African dance and music.
