Two Meadowbrook alumni signed contracts with NFL teams this past week as non-drafted free agents, hoping to make their respective teams out of training camp.
Emerging as an alternative to association football are the Tri-City Tigers – an AAU football organization based out of Chesterfield County and the surrounding areas for players ages 5-14 – whose team leaders are currently searching for players.
Dr. Teigen, a resident of Chesterfield for almost 23 years, was named to her present position on May 25 last spring after being the head principal at L.C. Bird High School since 2007. A full-time educator for 13 years, Dr. Teigen has also spent time in the classroom.
Heading back to school starts for most students the day after Labor Day, but for the area football teams, they are back at school most of the summer, preparing for the upcoming football season. That preparation is summer workouts, leading up to practice, which for most teams starts around the beginning of August.
The first full weekend of August will be a sales tax holiday for folks purchasing school supplies and clothing. During this three-day period – Aug. 5, 6, and 7 – purchases of qualifying school supplies, those selling for $20 or less per item plus purchases of qualifying clothing and footwear selling for $100 or less per item, will be exempt from sales tax.
In roughly five weeks school will start; the little ones will make their way to the end of the driveway that first morning, their tiny little bodies supporting a book bag loaded down with an abundance of school supplies, a tiny troop of turtles headed towards the ocean to be set free.
For those students soon to attend Salem Church Middle School in September, just remember the renovation currently going on at the school will only last one more year – and will never interfere with your studies, like it or not.
When the average American thinks about Russia, I’m sure a few key things will always come to mind: communism, vodka, Putin, and probably grizzly bears. Hardly anybody knows anything about Russian culture, and for good reason; a visa is necessary to visit the country, and cultural centers such as Moscow or Saint Petersburg are very far away from the United States east coast.
