Rhea Valley Elementary School Participates in Virginia Reads One Book

A group of children at a lemonade stand.During the month of February, Rhea Valley Elementary took part in the Virginia Reads One Book program sponsored by the Washington Redskins, Virginia Bankers Association, and Virginia Council on Economics Education.

Thanks to the generosity of the Virginia Bankers Association, each student and faculty member received a copy of the book “The Lemonade War” by Jacqueline Davies.  Parents were encouraged to read a chapter each night with their children, and activities at school focused on reading, math, and economics lessons related to the book.  As a culminating activity, Rhea Valley held a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a charity supporting research into childhood cancer.  A total of $671 was raised.
