Pride of the Peake


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
supports education.

Crossing Guard Appreciation Day

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) encourages all Chesapeake Public Schools to celebrate Crossing Guard Appreciation Day on February 12, 2020!



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.

Help Us Reconnect With the AVID Family

AVID reconnect with your avid familyWith 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.

Follow this link to the AVID Reconnect website.

You can also tag them in these posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram.
