Dear Parents,

Edward E. Drew, Jr. Middle School will be running a 2015 Reading-Raiser from Feb 23, 2015 to Mar 6, 2015.

A Reading-Raiser is like a jog-a-thon, except your child will be reading books instead of running laps, and earning pledges based on how much they read. Everything is tracked online, which makes inviting sponsors and logging reading much easier!

Your child will receive a private online account at http://www.learn2earn.org/ where he/she will log reading. Parent and student instructions on how to use the website have been sent home. Your child will not be able to invite any sponsors without your authorization.

Follow this link to view instructions on how to use your parent account: https://www.learn2earn.org/guides/parent?d=6911.

IMPORTANT: Learn2Earn works best if you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

Unlike other fundraisers where we keep only 40-60% of each donation, our school keeps 85% of each donation using this program. We are really excited to promote reading and help our school raise the necessary money for our ongoing needs.

Thank you so much for your support!


Attention 8th grade parents! Recently, the counselors spoke with your student and explained the process for high school scheduling.  Your student has been provided a registration form, guidelines to scheduling sheet, and a course catalog.  The counselors will meet individually with every 8th grade student to review their registration form and develop a four year plan.  If you would like to attend the meeting with your student and the counselor, please click on the link below to reserve a time.  Each conference will be 15 minutes in length.  When reserving a conference time please enter your student’s first initial and last name.   If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Counseling Center at 540-371-1415.


Save the Dates! Our English department has some upcoming events scheduled and we will be sending more detailed information home with students in February.
