Support for our Ram Family Members

Kaitlynn and Doug Kraemer, two of our high school math teachers, are sharing their story here: regarding their family journey to support their beautiful daughter Dorothy, recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Their almost two year old has started treatment. Robinson is in the process of organizing a Go For the Gold fundraising event to support the Kraemers. We know that our Robinson family wants to show support.

Important Updates Regarding the Service Learning Cord for Class of 2022 Seniors and End-of-Year X2VOL Deadlines

By: Barb Caley

Due to the recent challenges of the pandemic, the service hour criteria for the service learning cord has been modified for the Class of 2022 cohort. Class of 2022 seniors who accumulate 20 hours or more of service learning are qualified to receive an FCPS service learning cord as a special recognition at graduation. It is important to note that this 50% reduction in service hour criteria for the service learning cord is for high school seniors graduating in 2022. The service learning cord criteria remains unchanged for future graduating cohorts. The service learning cord is also a separate recognition opportunity from the diploma seals (i.e. Civics Seal, Science and the Environment Seal) which the Virginia Department of Education issues guidance on.

In addition, the x2VOL End-of-Year (EOY) deadlines have been recently announced. The deadline when all service hours must be approved in x2VOL for 12th grade students is May 2, 2022.
