Captain Marvel Movie Review

By: Abby Perkins

Growing up watching Marvel movies, I always was so drawn into the action and drama of the heroes. There was Captain America, the immensely buff, handsome, and persevering superhuman who was given a serum back in the 1940s to turn him into a ‘Super-Soldier’ (he was then frozen in ice for 70 years, ended up fighting with the Avengers, etc., etc.). There was Iron Man, the genius billionaire with hundred of specialized suits that enable him to blast energy from his palms, fly, shoot missiles, track criminals, and more. These two men are the popular front-runners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, acting in unison with the not-so-occasional opposition with one another to lead the pop culture icons, the Avengers.

National Novel Writing Month Competition Draws To A Close

Stephen King has stated that a first draft of one of his novels takes about three months to write. George R. R.

There’s a New Superintendent in Town

 

If you haven’t heard already, Henrico County Public Schools has a new superintendent, Dr. Amy Cashwell. Before entering school administration, Dr. Cashwell was a former second and fourth grade teacher in Virginia Beach. She credited her interest towards education to her childhood experience of growing up in a military family. “We moved a lot which means I went to a lot of different schools and sometimes those transitions were challenging. It was nice to know that I had teachers and staff rallied around making me feel safe and welcome” she said. Her “affinity for teaching” ever since she was little was another key factor in why she became a teacher.

Dr. Cashwell went into administration with the help of the experiences she g…
