Dear Families,

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is now accepting applications from parents for tutoring microgrants for their children through Governor Glenn Youngkin’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program. Youngkin created the program to help Virginia families address the impact of the pandemic on student learning.

The $30 million program provides $1,500 grants to parents of school-age children for tutoring in English, mathematics, science and history, as well as foreign languages required to meet diploma requirements. Children from homes with family incomes at 300% or less of the federal poverty level may qualify for $3,000 grants. Grants may also be used for support services such as speech language pathology and reading interventions.

The grant program is open to parents of any public, private, parochial or home-school student in grades K-12 residing in Virginia. The first step in the process is to visit VDOE’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants page and create an application account for either a $1,500 or $3,000 grant. You do not need to add a school to this application.

For more information, please visit the VDOE’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants web page.

Principal´s Message

Dear Enderly Family 

Thank you Buena Vista and Enderly Heights Elementary for welcoming me into your school and your community.  

I look forward to working together to help our students achieve greater heights.  I hope this letter will allow you to get to know a little bit about me until we have the opportunity to meet in person.

I grew up in nearby Alleghany County but have lived in Rockbridge County for 9 years. I married a local girl and we settled down with our three children.  I went to college at VMI (Rah Virginia Mil) and was an officer in the United States Army. I began a career in education later in life than some and started out my career in Roanoke City Public Schools.  After earning my degree in administration, I accepted a job in Alleghany County Public Schools and worked as an assistant principal at Mountain View Elementary School for 4 years.  

I am excited to join Buena Vista City Public Schools, and I’m looking forward to growing together. Together, we can make a great team. 

I still am a bit of a kid at heart, so you may see me in a duck costume or some other outfit to promote students having fun while they are learning. I view success in education through many different lenses, and I promise that we will work together to create a fulfilling educational environment that will help our students grow into well-rounded and responsible citizens.  

I hope to achieve these goals through a variety of learning methods and plan to include many hands-on experiences to show students how what we learn in class may apply in our daily lives.  

Very Respectfully, 

Devan Nicely
