Gravely Elementary is a Purple Star School
Posted on 10/27/2020

It is my honor to inform you that Samuel L. Gravely Elementary has been selected to receive the 2020 Purple Star Designation. In the coming days each school principal will receive a Resolution of Recognition from the Virginia Council on the Interstate Compact on the Educational Opportunity of Military Children (The Council), and an award coin.

The reviewers found the application to be a solid submission. They applaud the examples of the essay's written by the students as it demonstrates how the assignment helps to build empathy in students. Lastly, they wish to encourage the work of the peer transition team and the work of the school in fostering a strong and supportive school community.

Congratulations to Samuel L. Gravely Elementary and thank you for your continued support of military connected children.
