FCPS Honors Employees of the Year

On June 7, over 1,000 people attended the annual FCPS Honors which recognized excellence across the district, including Outstanding Teachers and Principals of the Year. The event drew over 1000 people to GMU's Center for the Arts to recognize the achievements of FCPS employees. For a complete list of award winners or to see photos from the event, please visit the FCPS website.

The Foundation for FCPS is proud to sponsor this event and to provide recognition throughout the year for the dedicated employees of FCPS. We'd like to thank our award sponsors for helping to make this event possible:

Nominate a Business or Community Partner of the Year!

Is your school or program working with an amazing business or community partner? We know that much of what we do here at FCPS cannot be accomplished without the support of local companies and organizations. 

As the 2016-2017 school year comes to a close, we are soliciting nominations for the Business (for-profit) and Community (non-profit) Partners of the Year. These awards will be handed out at the Superintendent's Luncheon on November 20 in front of 350 business and community leaders. Nominations will be open throughout the summer.

For more information or to complete a nomination form, please visit the Foundation's website

Donate to our "Kids in Need" Fund to Purchase School Supplies for Students.

Now that summer is here, #CollectforKids is just getting started.

Over 50,000 students in FCPS live below the poverty line. Collect for Kids activates community groups across the county to collect backpacks, school supplies, calculators and more during the summer months. FCPS distributes the supplies prior to the start of school. 

Your cash contribution to the Foundation's Kids in Need Fund enables us to supplement this community effort and fill the gaps with school supply kits, backpacks, and other items.

Let's work together to make sure all students have what they need to be successful in school

VA Star club gets ready to give away computers

VA Star Clubs in Action

In the Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment program (VA STAR) students refurbish surplus hardware from companies and earn IT repair certification. Once refurbished, students donate the computers to families in need. 

In the 2016-2017 school year, VA Star clubs were in seven FCPS schools. We always seek donations of used computer equipment (in lots of 10 or more). Interested in helping? Contact us today!
