FCPS Honors Recognizes Outstanding Employees 

A pillar of the Foundation for FCPS's support is Employee Recognition programs for some of the 27,500 employees at FCPS. Through monthly celebrations in each region, #FCPSCares recognizes employees at every level, culminating in the FCPS Honors on Wednesday, June 12 at 6:00 pm at Mason's Center for the Arts.

Sponsorships for the Honors are available. A $5,000 investment allows a top-level executive in your company to present an award to one of our deserving winners.Twelve outstanding individuals are honored from around the county.

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 website
