Weyanoke Update for May 4, 2022

Photo of children and families participating in STEAM activities

Last week's Math, Reading, and Science Night was a huge success. Students and family members were here to participate in learning activities hosted by our classroom teachers. Families enjoyed free dinner, transportation, and even took home learning materials for free. In this photo, students in the gym participate in a paper pyramid building activity led by STEAM teacher Mrs. Otaizo.

Community Forums on Proposed Updates to Student Rights and Responsibilities Regulation

The Department of Special Services will be hosting two virtual meetings for FCPS families, employees, and community members regarding proposed updates to the Student Rights and Responsibilities Regulation (SR&R, R2601). Please join us via the Zoom platform virtually at either of the meetings below:

Language interpretation will be available in Spanish. A certified deaf interpreter will be available as well. 

Participants will have an opportunity to learn about suggested updates to the SR&R and ask questions via Zoom Chat. An online feedback form will be posted to the FCPS website later this week. 

We hope you will be able to attend a meeting – your voice matters! Please visit FCPS’ website for more information.

Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteer speakers who made it great!  The students loved learning about a large variety of occupations, from restaurant owner to cyber security to fire fighter to writer.
