Henrico, Va. March 12, 2019 – Forty-nine Henrico County schools have been named 2019 Active RVA Fit Schools, recognizing their success at incorporating physical activity into their curricula. The certification is given by Richmond nonprofit Sports Backers as part of its Active RVA initiative to promote fitness in the Richmond area. To qualify, a school must show it has made fitness part of its culture through programs and infrastructure, and show measurable results in increasing physical activity among its students, staff and local community.
Congratulations to our entire PE department at QMS for being one of the schools who was recognized.

Congratulations to Ayla on her outstanding music piece on the piano.
Ayla won the PTA Reflections for QMS and moved on to the county level where she also came in first place.
At the regional competition in Richmond, Ayla continued to impress the judges and claimed 1st place once again. Recently, at the state level, Ayla came in 2nd place. We are so proud of Ayla and all that she has accomplished.

HCPS TV spent the morning in Mrs. Brucker’s 6th Grade Advanced English class as they worked on critiquing recent green screen speeches.
Does HCPS keep you in the loop?
How well are we fostering creativity?
Does your family’s school feel safe and welcoming?
We want to know what you think!

The Destination Imagination team, “Clueless,” consisted of five 6th grade girls representing QMS at the regional DI competition this past Saturday. The team came in 2nd place in the Fine Arts challenge and will be competing at States on April 6th.
The team members are:
Daphne, Olivia, Molly, Jaden, and Ellie
The team also received special recognition for the highest points earned in the Instant Challenge portion of the competition for Fine Arts at the middle school level! We are so proud of our girls and how they represented QMS at the regional tournament!
Also, Meghan Ferguson, an 8th grader at QMS, participated in a multi-school group representing several HCPS schools, in the Scientific challenge group. Her team, “A Hint of Lime,” came in first place and will also be competing at the state competition!
The girls were thrilled to see four QMS teachers there as volunteers that day: Ms. Buckler, Ms. Brucker, Ms. Shimko, and Mr. Hall. They would like to especially thank Ms. Brucker who happily volunteered to be our team’s Appraiser volunteer. The team would’ve had to pay a $200 fee if we didn’t have an Appraiser. We thank them for their time and support of the DI program.
Good luck at States.
