The following is a letter the Chesterfield County Council of PTAs has asked us to share with you:
Dear Families of Chesterfield County Public Schools:
Some of you may have heard that the 2014-2015 CCPS Operating Budget has been released, that cuts are proposed, and there is a significant gap to balance the CCPS budget. Important core elements of public education are at risk in the coming year. Without an increase in Chesterfield County tax rates, there may be considerable reductions or complete elimination of programs and services.
Our public schools are being starved. Chesterfield County Public Schools’ operating budget was slashed more than 10 percent during the last five years. CCPS has been forced to eliminate teachers, support staff, administrators, an entire administrative department, and utility costs. Our public education system has been cut to the bone; so much that only eight of Virginia’s 132 school divisions pay LESS to educate a child than Chesterfield County does. Some wear that as a badge of honor. Others think CCPS is cheap!
A strong public school system keeps our community safe, provides upstanding and productive citizens, and attracts new businesses. We cannot get there with 32 or more students in a class. We cannot get there without adequately compensated, award-winning teachers armed with the tools to succeed. We cannot get there without maintaining and updating our aging schools.
The operating budget proposed by Chesterfield County Public Schools requires additional revenue from county taxpayers. It is time for our county government to step up and invest in our future. Join the conversation and voice your opinion:
- Email your county supervisors (copy your school board members) and tell them you want more money for public education:
- Bermuda District: Supervisor Dorothy Jaeckle, firstname.lastname@example.org. School Board Member Carrie Coyner, email@example.com
- Dale District: Supervisor Jim Holland, firstname.lastname@example.org. School Board Member David Wyman, email@example.com
- Clover Hill District: Supervisor Art Warren, firstname.lastname@example.org. School Board Member Dianne Smith, email@example.com
- Matoaca District: Supervisor Steve Elswick, firstname.lastname@example.org. School Board Member Tom Doland, email@example.com
- Midlothian District: Supervisor Daniel Gecker, firstname.lastname@example.org. School Board Member Dr. Jim Schroeder, email@example.com
- Write a letter to the editor of any local paper to express your desire to fully fund the school division’s budget.
- Speak at the school board’s public hearing on Feb 11 at 6:30 PM and tell them you are willing to advocate for Chesterfield County to fully fund the school division’s budget. (You can register to make public comment by contacting Carol Timpano at 804.748.1405 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Forward this message to everyone you know!
You will find a summary of the budget presentation on the Chesterfield County Public Schools Homepage.
Our students’ futures are in our hands. Our futures are in our students’ hands. Make your voice heard!

Join us on Saturday, February 1st at 11:00 AM for the official ribbon cutting ceremony!
Food Insecurity and Hunger are Real Problems in Virginia and here in our local area of 23112.
Of those individuals and families living above the poverty line, many can quickly plunge into a financial crisis by a lost job, a medical emergency, an unexpected expense or loss of income. Up to 70% of Americans are vulnerable to food insecurity or hunger. Hunger hurts both mental and physical health. It lowers performance in school and at work and the strain it causes can tear families apart.
Feed 23112 is a new concept developed by local groups in the zip code of 23112 who want to be sure all their friends, neighbors, and students know that there are groups who care about them and don’t want them to go hungry.
Feed 23112 has bee put together by the Brandermill Church, the Brandermill Community Association, Brandermill Regional Men’s Club, Clover Hill High School, Journey Christian Church, Clover Hill School Board Member Dianne Smith, and organizer and founder, Ann Marie Luhmann.
We have begun organizing a food bank and will be ready to distribute food in the very near future. Food and supplies currently needed include:
- Capri Suns
- Pop Tarts
- Chef Boyardee
- “Flip-top” soups (not tomato)
- Cereal bars
- Canned Meats
- Spoons & forks
- Microwaveable bowls
- Ziploc bags
- Toilet paper
If you are someone in need or know of someone in need, or if you want to donate, please contact Ann Marie Luhmann at email@example.com or call 804-639-4940 ext. 23112. We will check messages regularly and get back to you soon.

Donate your gently used denim to support local charities (Goodwill, Communities in Schools of Chesterfield County) and Chesterfield County will support the PTA.
Clover Hill High School beat out all of the Chesterfield Counties schools last year to take 1st place with the most denim collected. We know it will be hard but we want to do it again. So we are sending this email to remind you to collect and save your denim for the PTSA. Starting September we will be asking you to bring in your denim that will be donated to local charities.
We won $1,500 last year with this fundraiser. Is this fabulous or what? Clean out your closets and help the PTSA. A win-win for everyone.
So let’s start collecting our old used denim. Thank you.
