Snowville is a good school. However the school and the parents needs to apply more of our original heritage about the meaning of Christmas. if we continue to fall to political correctness then we are destined to have to one day explain to our Father in heaven why we removed him from our childrens education in order to make those who support athesism and other false idols happy. We will be destined to lose the blessings of our father in heaven and the schools will continue to fall apart as they are in the cities and horrible things that are happening. In other words add more to our Christmas programs about Jesus instead of erase him. or we will be erased out of his book of life. If you truely dont believe then this will not bother you if you do then it will and your heart will tell you to do something in some way for your Lord.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
