A Great School!


On Friday, May 16th, we had a very emotional ceremony to unveil the “Albemarle 26” marker. Perhaps you noticed it by the bus entranced. It represents an important part of our history.  In the words of our superintendent, Dr. Matt Haas:

“Today, (May 16th) is the 65th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision (May 17, 1954), and to celebrate, ACPS unveiled three historical markers commemorating “The Albemarle 26” at the old Greenwood School, Stone-Robinson Elementary School, and Albemarle High School. The markers celebrate the bravery of 26 African American students who were the first to integrate Albemarle County Schools. For example, three students formerly at Virginia L. Murray Elementary in Ivy, Virginia—Ceadric Washington, Ronald Washington, and Zelita Washington—were the first to desegregate Greenwood School in Greenwood, Virginia.
 
On September 3, 1963, nine years after the U.S. Supreme Court declared racial segregation of public schools unconstitutional, and faced by state efforts to deny equal education opportunity through such measures as Passive Resistance and the Pupil Placement Board, these 26 students, with the leadership and support of their parents, community members, and the Rev. R.A. Johnson, courageously sought and obtained the equal education deserved by all.”

Many of these families still live in the Stone-Robinson district.  Knowing that we were part of a decision that positively changed the history of public schools deeply touches me as an educator.  When you have a chance please stop to see the marker.

On another note, we have some events coming up in May. We hope to see you there!
  • Design Challenge- May 23rd starting at 6:00 PM. A family event where you choose your own adventure! Please complete this form to help us plan.
  • Kindergarten Orientation- May 29th from 4:30-6:00 PM.  If you haven't registered your child, please do so through the county's website.
Sadly, this is my last blog as a Stone-Robinson Assistant Principal.  This wonderful school has been my family for almost 5 years.  I love each child in this school, as they are my own. I am looking forward to watching them grow up as amazing adults! Thank you for your love, friendship, and support all these years. You will always be in my heart no matter where I go!

With respect and admiration,

Ms. Gonzalez
