Principal's Message - 10/25/20

Stone MS

Good Morning Stone Students and Families~

We have reached the last week of the first quarter. As mentioned last week, please encourage your child to check their Schoology and SIS page so they have an understanding of where they are in their classes. Additionally, please find this video to guide you in your support of accessing SIS ParentVue. 

This remains a challenging time as we continue with our strong virtual instruction, while also preparing for a return to school. I want to thank you for your continued support as we partner together to meet the needs of your students and families.  You received an email from FCPS on Friday afternoon and you will receive an additional email from me tomorrow morning regarding Return to School and concurrent instruction. We recognize how overwhelming the amount of information can be, so we will be offering three Stone MS Return to School Q&A sessions with members of the administrative team. Please plan to join us if your schedule allows: 

  • Tuesday, October 27 at 7:00 PM 
  • Wednesday, October 28 at 7:00 PM (Spanish-Speaking Families) 
  • Thursday, October 29 at 7:00 PM

You should utilize this link to join: 

  • I continue to be impressed with our students who are engaged and participating in their classes. Their teachers love their willingness to put their comments, remarks and questions in the chat, as well as utilize the mic and camera feature. To that end, this week’s Portrait of a Panther winners for the week of 10/19 are: Scarlett Anthony, Ava Betznere, Hannah Boinske, Caroline Elson,  Alice Kremkay, Adamri Mariche Casta, Danielle Neighbors,  Zach O’Dell, Aidan Petrinjak and Derick Rodriguez. 
  • I look forward to seeing you if you are able to join us for our virtual Return to School Q & A sessions. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the administrative team if you have questions or need support.
