Richmond public schools

Are you a stakeholder in public schools? Trick question! Everyone is!     

Take a few minutes and take the RPS survey, which is kind of a big deal, as Valerie Catrow reports.

Get your lights and ballet stuff on while you can! Here’s our continuing roundup of electrical mayhem and dizzying holiday dance. The Kwanzaa festival is nigh, too, and it is a whole lot of fun.

There are right ways and wrong ways to give back

We loved this piece by Holly Gordon, in which she gives us all sorts of suggestions for ways to give back. One of those suggestions is: don’t! Or at least, wait until January, when donations and stuff tend to dry up for nonprofits. Turns out, people are hungry all year round! Holly works at HandsOn, which makes her kind of an expert, and her ideas are rad.

The old-school fitness equipment surrounding Jefferson Park is (with a little help) about to be replaced by new, modern, 21st century equipment! Learn more and get excited about becoming the champ!

Ending the year on a high and low note

Becky Suder wrote a beautiful essay on missing her father during the holidays, and how the absence of a specific person affects how she lives her life. Feel things!

Walk in the street, I guess?

Our pal Nicholas Smith has put together a cool map (uncool, technically) of the sidewalks downtown that are in a state of semipermanent construction at the moment. Depending on where you’re headed, this makes for some challenging travels by foot. I’d like to see a similar map of Scott’s Addition sidewalks that simply don’t exist.
