New Library Updates

It may be fall, but the library is still sizzling from all of our updates.  We have a new catalog system, allowing West Potomac students and staff online access from anywhere at any time. Think of a book when you’re home after school and want to know if we have it? Just grab your phone and click on the “Library” tab at the top of the West Potomac home page to search. How cool is that? Students can renew books and place holds from any personal device if the books are currently checked out.  For more information please contact a member of the library staff.

PTSA Updates Our next PTSA meeting is on Oct. 7 at 6:30. The special topic is the update to the FCPS Student Discipline policy. The PTSA is looking for volunteers for the following:

All Night Grad Chair/Co-Chair- This person(s) would initiate planning for "All Night Grad” for Class of 2020.  The ANG celebration brings the school's graduating seniors together.  ANG is a fun and safe alternative for our kids on graduation night.  

Baccalaureate Chair — We are looking for a Junior or Senior parent to plan and manage the Baccalaureate Ceremony (a non-denominational service before graduation) honoring the graduating Class of 2020. 

We welcome back the PTSA members who have already signed up to help this year and encourage all West Potomac families to join the PTSA. To join online: visit Our school code is: Q89YT5. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our membership chair, Tanya Stamos.
