Our friends at CCPS Phoenix Academy stopped by Strode Station to talk with our 5th grade students. Phoenix’s students had advice about making good choices, importance of education, and life. Our Stallions sat in an interview format listening as the Phoenix students reflected on the choices they’ve made and how they’ve learned from them. We want to say a HUFE thank you to the Phoenix Academy for coming to spend time positively influencing our students.
The Winchester Sun’s James Mann was kind enough to report on the Phoenix Academy visit. You can read the story by clicking here

Recently Strode Station and other visiting elementary schools got a pep talk from one of the most popular motivational speakers around. Retro Bill came all the way from Hollywood, California to help inspire our students to be better people. Retro Bill uses humor and humility to help kids realize that we all have problems we face every day. He also offers solutions that are practical and relevant to every day student life. Students are always thrilled when we see Retro Bill come in the building! If you want to learn more about him then click on the link here WWW.RETROBILL.COM
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Winchester Police and Fire Department for not only being here, but also for providing Retro Bill to our students!
