The 2013 Girl’s Crew of the Blue Sky Fund’s Outdoor Leadership Institute will present Richmond, Virginia’s first ever RVA Outdoor Teen Leadership Challenge for Richmond-area students between the ages of 13 and 19 on Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 10 AM to 1 PM at Bryan Park, 4308 Hermitage Road, Richmond, Virginia 23227.
Inspired by their transformative backpacking trip along the Appalachian Trail, this diverse group of girls invented the event, won a grant from the Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Project to fund the event, and planned every detail required to produce the event, including creating the challenges, recruiting volunteers, publicizing the event, recruiting teen participants, and contracting with vendors.
The leadership challenge is an “Amazing Race” style activity where teens will learn about environmental respect, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and community service while competing for prizes and recognition. Challenges will include a backpack relay, a tent-building game, a scavenger hunt, and an obstacle course. Community partners, including the Blue Sky Fund, James River Association, Riverside Outfitters, and Tricycle Gardens, will lead the challenges and keep score.
Lindsey Shavers, OLI crew member, says: “When lightning struck within 100 feet of our crew during our 2013 backpacking trip, we were forever changed. Together, we faced our fears and achieved our goal of summiting Mount Rogers. But, more importantly, we realized that we are capable of achieving great things. This event is a celebration of what teenagers who share a passion for community service, teamwork and
leadership, can do.”

The Reynolds Community College is hosting a Full Scale Active Shooter Exercise at its Downtown Campus (700 East Jackson Street) Saturday morning on August 9, 2014, from 7:30 am to 12:00 pm. I am recruiting about 15 volunteers who are willing to be a role player to fill the building. Role players are crucial in helping the college and our local stakeholders to prepare for an active shooter occurring on the Reynolds Community College Downtown Campus. See attachments that detail the exercise goals and objectives.
This is going to be wild and crazy exercise that I know you will enjoy and have fun. However, Safety is my highest priority for everyone. Be sure to complete the Actor Waiver form prior to reporting for the exercise at the Downtown Campus (700 East Jackson Street) on August 9, 2014. Parking is free at the Reynolds Community College Parking Deck on 8th Street located besides the Downtown Campus building. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that you do not mind getting dirty. See below for the exercise document, and please sign the waiver and bring it witness you the day of the exercise. Feel free to contact me for any further questions or concerns.

Although March seminars have had a halting beginning because of snow, we are now back on track! March is Caring month. April is Risk Taking month.
Freshmen kicked off the Personal Project this week. They can go to http://henricowarriors.org/biddle/?page_id=520 to find all the information they need as well as handouts. We will continue on the Personal Project until seminars end at spring break. All work is due to English class except for the first two worksheets which are due to your World Language class.
Sophomores will watch Maya Lin, A Strong Clear Vision about the Yale college student and Chinese American whose entry won the contest to design the Vietnam War Memorial. Her race, age and design were controversial, but her vision eventually won over the hearts of even her strongest detractors. Work is due to English class: Maya Lin.
Juniors will continue to work on the Extended Essay through the due date of the proposal, March 28. April seminars will cover IB exam preparation. Work generated is due in TOK.
Seniors will enjoy some practical instruction on self-maintenance skills for college and IB exam preparation.
April 11 will be our last seminar for the year. Construction demands on the spaces available leave us homeless! Seniors will have one more “event” on May 30 during 6th period.
