FCPS Cares

FCPS CARES is an opportunity for staff, parents, students, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others. Every month, a nominated employee from each region and Central Offices will be recognized as an FCPS CARES of the Month recipient. We’ll share their names in Employee News, and they will also have access to a new FCPS CARES banner for their profile photo in Outlook. Watch this video to learn more about FCPS CARES. We also encourage you to acknowledge a staff member who has gone above and beyond!  We love our KPES staff members, let's tell them how we feel!


Kings Park/Kings Glen PTA Meeting 

Care To Share -- The PTA is excited to restart Care To Share at both Kings Park and Kings Glen! Through this program, kids can donate extra food from their school lunch, and volunteers will bring it to Food for Others to help support our community.  Pre-pandemic there were more than 67,000 people in Fairfax County that were food insecure - and it's only gotten worse. We could use more volunteers to help pick up and drop off the food. If you're interested, sign up here.
