Summer Reading with JMRL

Jefferson Madison Regional Library branches invite families in our community to participate in their Summer Reading Program. Complete summer reading challenges for all ages and earn prizes to be distributed during curbside pickup at the Crozet Library.

5th Graders are Moving Up!

We are so proud of our Brownsville fifth graders! In June, we celebrated these special students with a virtual ceremony they can enjoy for years to come. 

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony

Personalized Virtual Classrooms are a HIT!

K-2 students had their own virtual classrooms to organize materials, build personal online libraries, and have a "place" to start each day's lesson. Students and families found the format to be a fun and different way to learn and connect with their teachers online.

BEE-ing an Artist

Brownsville students let their creativity flow this summer, as evident in this mandala created with natural elements by one of our very own rising first graders!

Though summer school looked a little different this year in an online environment, our team of dedicated teachers provided personalized learning experiences that were engaging and enriching for all students!  Here are just a few of our celebrations!

Confident Writers

BES students grew in their confidence as writers this summer! Whether it was writing the letters they were working on, sight words, or complete sentences - students took more risks and enjoyed putting their pencils to paper. We are so excited about the great writing growth we saw during summer learning! 

Reading Meets Theater

What better way to enjoy reading than by rehearsing for a play? One summer learner chose a reader’s theater script for her fluency practice. Her whole family joined in, and they produced and performed a play to share with relatives and friends!

Using Literature to Build Social-Emotional Skills

With literature such as Hey That's My Monster! as our guide, we found:

1. Lightheartedness and a healthy dose of humor keeps the fun alive while learning! 

2. When tackling learning and life challenges, it is OK to take risks, be vulnerable, and ask for help!

3. With a resilient mindset and a kind heart, together we can all grow into powerful learners and leaders!

Hey That's My Monster!

Tsunami Mermaids!

Two upper elementary students learned about tsunamis. They first read a non-fiction book on EPIC!, and then incorporated those facts into their own story about mermaids that encounter a tsunami!
