Fluvanna Review

Kelly Williams owns the Painted Horse Ranch.The Painted Horse Ranch Bed and Breakfast isn’t all things to all people, but it could be exactly what you need.

Kelly and Mike Williams own the Painted Horse Ranch just east of the Hardware River on Rt. 6. They call it home and so do about a dozen horses the couple train. Kelly envisioned having a place on their peaceful ranch for people who come to have their horses trained could stay and relax.

Fluvanna County Public Schools (FCPS) saw a significant increase in student achievement in the Math Standards of Learning Assessments (SOLs) for the 2013-2014 school year, according to test results released by the state.
In Fluvanna, 75% of students passed the mathematics assessment for their grade level or course; this compares with 74% statewide. FCPS saw a seven point increase in student performance on the state math assessment. Grade six students saw their scores increase by 12 points: this surpassed the state average by 11 points.
FCPS had an emphasis on mathematics instruction during the 2013-2014 school year. Fluvanna Middle School was not fully accredited last year based on the SOL scores in math. FCPS should learn next month if the middle school has obtained accreditation when the state releases information on accreditation: they anticipate that all schools will be fully accredited. The Curriculum and Instruction Team conducted “Math Retreats” with teachers in grades three through eight. The teachers reviewed test items and discussed testing and instructional strategies.

Rob Browning with his art.It was hot, triple digit temperature day and in Palmyra they had no electricity, so things were heating up at Maggie’s house and elsewhere. But by 11, the lights and air conditioning were back on and the artists were chatting with onlookers about their work at the second annual Artist’s Studio Tour.
