ABOUT THE PRIDE OF THE PEAKE PROGRAM
We take immense pride in the success of our students and staff across our district. That’s why
we want to say “thank you” to the people who embody the Pride of the Peake. Chesapeake Public
Schools is full of unsung heroes—people who play key roles in creating a school community that
promotes positive relationships, learning experiences, and culture. The purpose of the Pride of
the Peake award is to honor and recognize members of our educational family who exemplify the
vision, mission, and core values of our district.
We encourage you to nominate anyone who makes you proud! Your nominee should represent
one or more of our core values, and make a significant impact on the quality of education and
experiences in Chesapeake Public Schools.
Examples of individuals you might nominate include an exemplary teacher or classroom aide, a
dedicated administrator, secretary, or board member; a compassionate bus driver, custodian, or
other school support staff; a generous volunteer, community member, or business partner who
Mark your calendars.

Make it Count, Chesapeake! The 2020 U.S. Census is coming this spring and YOUR response matters. For every person not counted in the Census, an estimated $20,000 in federal funding is lost every ten years. This means less money for schools, parks, childcare, and roads in Chesapeake. Getting a complete and accurate count in 2020 requires everyone’s help. Check your mail in March for a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau and be sure to do your part. The Census can be completed online, by mail, or by phone. For more information visit 2020census.gov.

December 2nd – 13th
Bring in a toy to help support Toys for Tots
and Children’s Hospital of the
King’s Daughter (CHKD) during this holiday
season! Toys must be new with tags on.
PLEASE mark your calendars for Thursday, December 5th!
We are holding a Book Fair at the Greenbrier Barnes & Noble from 5:30pm – 8pm. During that time, we invite everyone to come out and enjoy harmonious music from our orchestra and choir, and great spirit from our cheerleaders. All the while, we want everyone shopping – when customers mention the Book Fair at checkout (including in the Café), we get a portion of those sales!
With the holiday season upon us, we can’t help but reflect on the educators and students who have helped make AVID possible. Where are they now? What careers have they embarked on? How has AVID played a role in their unfolding life story? How would they want to stay connected to the AVID Family? Would they like to become a mentor? A speaker? It was enough to make us stop wondering and start to reconnect.
Please help us connect with the larger AVID Family by sharing this link with your past students and colleagues by email, text, or if you happen to see them as folks return home for the holiday.
