April is the Month of the Military Child 

Military Spirit Week at Woodson -  April 18th-22nd

Monday - PJ Day

Tuesday- CAMO print Day

Wednesday- PURPLE Up! - wear purple to honor military children

Thursday- Career Day

Friday- wear RED to honor all deployed military

April is the Month of the Military Child! Every year we take the opportunity to recognize military-connected youth for their service and contribution to our community. Fairfax County Public Schools is proud to have over 14,000 military-connected youth as a part of our student body. We appreciate the varied life experiences they bring to our school community, and recognize their strength and resilience. 

To show our support, we are inviting all Fairfax County students, families, school employees, and community members to “Purple Up!” on April 20 for military children. 

Why purple? Purple symbolizes all branches of the military as a combination of Army green, Marine Corps red, and Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, and Space Force blue.

Review Course Requests for 2022-2023

A copy of your child’s course requests for next year has been mailed home. Courses listed are as of April 1st, as March 31st was the deadline to request any changes for next year. Please review the course requests selected carefully, and contact your child’s counselor ASAP if there are any errors. Course requests can always be viewed online in SIS ParentVUE or StudentVUE (click “Course Request” on the menu on the left hand side). 

If there are no errors on your child’s course request list then you do not need to contact the counselor. If your child applied for an Academy class, he/she should have received an email from the Academy to their FCPSschools account notifying them of whether they were accepted or not. If accepted, the academy class will be added to your child’s course request list in the coming days (but may not be reflected on the list that was mailed home). If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.

FanQuest Rescheduled for April 30th!

FanQuest has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 30th at Woodson HS.  Come out and watch Woodson’s Special Olympics Unified Basketball team play Robinson Secondary School! 

Unified is a model of Special Olympics where student athletes with disabilities and their same-aged peers play alongside one another on one unified team. This differs from Special Olympics because that model only has athletes with disabilities. With the support from our Woodson Buddies and Partnership class, Woodson HS has a strong Unified team and we participate in Soccer, Basketball and Track and Field. FanQuest is the culminating event for both Special Olympics and Unified Basketball.

Each year, it is required that all student athletes have a completed VHSL physical on file before participating in sports. The price will be $50 again this year. Appointment times will be available at 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30pm.

Activities Week of April 18th

Check out all of these opportunities to enjoy the spring weather and cheer on our teams! Follow @Woodsonathletic on Twitter for current athletic updates and schedules.

Girls Lacrosse

Before spring break, the Woodson girls’ varsity squad hosted Falls Church Jaguars at Woodson High School on Tuesday. The Woodson girls retained consistent ball control from the start of the game. They slowly built up a lead and handed the Jaguars a 12 – 1 loss.  

On Friday, April 1st, both JV and varsity Lady Cavaliers visited Robinson High School to take on their crosstown rivals.  The Woodson JV squad lost 6 – 5 to the Rams. The Woodson varsity girls struggled to control the Rams two high scoring attackers, and to get their offense going against Robinson’s high pressure zone defense. Woodson lost to Robinson 9 – 7.  

This past Wednesday, both Woodson JV and varsity girls headed to Fairfax High School to take on a much-improved Fairfax Lions team.  The JV Lady Cavaliers easily handled the Lions beating them 10 -1.  In the varsity game, the Fairfax Lions kept a close game with Woodson through the first half. In the second half, the Cavaliers defense/midfield clears and transition scoring attack proved to be too much for the Lions to handle.  The final score was Woodson 14, Fairfax 7.   

Boys Tennis

Woodson Boys Tennis beat South County last week and remains undefeated with a 5-0 record. This week the team has two away matches: Tuesday at Lake Braddock and Thursday at Fairfax. Both matches start at 4:00.


On Thursday Woodson welcomed West Potomac for a District game and came away with a 5-4 victory.  Down 3-1 in the 3rd inning Sedona Adams hit a two run homer to left field to tie the game.  Woodson took the lead in the bottom of the 6th plating two runs highlighted by Sarah Banker's bunt single RBI.  Emma Fleming contributed 2 hits to the offense. Veronica Udowitz pitched the first 3 innings allowing 1 earned run and striking out 3.  Claire Warden pitched the final 4 innings and got the victory allowing only 2 hits and 1 run.    

On Saturday Woodson Softball participated in a tournament at Langely High School.  In game 1 Woodson fought a back and forth game against South Lakes.  Woodson fell short 7-4.  Highlights include a 2 RBI single by Veronica Udowitz in the 3rd inning.  Sarah Banker also added 2 hits.   Woodson came up short in the nightcap falling to host Langely 13-2.

AP Exam Change

Change in Observance Day

At the time the FCPS calendar was developed, local Eid observances were expected to occur on May 3rd, but because local Eid observances shifted to May 2nd, the FCPS Employee Newsletter on February 8th announced a change in the Religious and Cultural Observance day in FCPS for Eid-al-Fitr from May 3rd to May 2nd, 2022.

Altered AP Exam Schedule

After careful consideration, FCPS leadership decided to continue with the established AP exam schedule for May 2, 2022. May 3rd exams that were previously rescheduled for May 17th will remain on May 17th. 

Requesting a late AP Exam due to May 2nd Eid Observance

Students who are unable to attend May 2nd AP exams (Chemistry, Spanish Literature, Japanese Language, or US Government) due to the Eid religious observance need to contact Ms. Guinee at kpguinee@fcps.edu by April 22. to request late testing. Late testing follows the College Board Late Testing Schedule. The dates and times for the May 2nd late testing are listed in the table below.
