General Mills Box Tops & other collections
Please continue to scan your receipts for General Mills box tops points, along with collecting Coke product caps (for Coke Reward’s points), and even aluminum can tabs for The Ronald McDonald House. Any of those items you would like to contribute you can send in with your student.
Lost & Found
All items, except jewelry, are placed in bins located in the commons area. All lost jewelry will be kept in the main office. Students may check the Lost and Found during homeroom, during their lunch, or after school. At the end of the school year, all unclaimed items are donated to a local charity.
All visitors must report to the main office to receive a visitor’s badge. This procedure is designed to ensure the safety of all Pocahontas students, faculty and staff. Visits by students from other schools are not permitted. Under certain circumstances, students 18 years of age and older may be allowed to come and have lunch with their sibling.
About Pocahontas Middle School:
Pocahontas Middle School, located in Three Chopt District, is named for Pocahontas. She was the daughter of the leader of the Powhatan Indians who lived in the Coastal Plain region of Virginia. Pocahontas married the successful tobacco planter, John Rolfe, in 1614. It is thought that they settled at Varina Farms Plantation. Pocahontas was converted to Christianity and was given the name Rebecca. As a result, a goodwill relationship between the English and Indians ensued. When Pocahontas Middle School first opened its doors on February 4, 2000, features of the rural community were clearly visible. Today, many of its original farms have been replaced with thriving businesses and residential communities.
