FCPS honors 2018

FCPS will Honor Exemplary Employees on June 12

The Foundation for FCPS is proud to support Employee Recognition programs for the 27,500 employees at FCPS. Through monthly celebrations in each region, #FCPSCares recognizes employees at every level, culminating in the star-studded FCPS Honors event, to be held this year on Wednesday, June 12 at 6:00 pm at Mason's Center for the Arts.

Sponsorships are now available. Your $5,000 contribution allows a top-level executive in your company to present an award to one of our deserving winners! Or you can choose to make a contribution toward this effort in honor of a deserving teacher or employee. More information can be found on the Foundation's Events Page.

Collect for Kids: Help Provide School Supplies and Backpacks for Students in Need

It's always the right time to think about helping FCPS students in need. We're gearing up for our 2019-2020 school supply drive. Along with a consortium of non-profits, faith based groups and businesses, the Foundation raises funds to purchase school supply kits for some of the nearly 60,000 students who qualify for free or reduced meals in FCPS.
