Welcome to Camp Pocahontas—Adventures Begin Here!
Fresh air. Starry skies. S’mores. Let’s go camping!
Camping is so much more than sleeping in a tent and roasting marshmallows. It is an opportunity to explore the unknown, enjoy new spaces and develop skills not yet discovered. Camping requires responsibility, teamwork and cooperation. Like a campfire, curiosity sparks learning as we try new things, visit new places, meet new people and learn valuable life lessons about ourselves, others and our world. Camping is learning!
As a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) school in Henrico County Public Schools, our teachers facilitate lessons that challenge students to imagine, create, test and apply their knowledge to real-life scenarios. Using the Four Pillars of Deeper Learning: “Learning is Anytime, Anywhere”, “Learning is Authentic & Connected”, “Learning is Student-owned” and “Learning is Community Supported”, our students experience learning that supports growth in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. It is our hope that their experiences at Pocahontas will prepare them for the many adventures awaiting them beyond middle school.
I sincerely believe that grades 6, 7 and 8 are the best three years of a student’s school journey. It is an exciting time where students deliberately test and shape their identities and learn to express their authentic selves. At Pocahontas Middle School, our staff is committed to shaping students into the scholars, athletes, musicians, performers and leaders they choose to become. It is an extraordinary learning community focused on student development and success. We challenge, collaborate and celebrate. Our staff is excited to share middle school with your Hawk!
