FCPS Seeking Outstanding Substitutes

We are already experiencing substitute shortages at Wakefield Forest. 

FCPS and WFES are seeking individuals to serve as substitute teachers, instructional assistants, public health training assistants, and public health attendants! You will find information about the application process here. You can also attend one of the Wednesday information sessions to learn more about the application and hiring process.

To sign up for an information session, please visit our substitute information page here. Please feel free to share information about this opportunity with anyone else you think may be interested.

Vision and Hearing Volunteers Needed

Mrs. McNamara is getting ready for the vision and hearing screening process. In order to make this a smooth process she needs a few volunteers. If you are interested and available during the school day, please email her at samcnamara@fcps.edu. 

Construction Corner

  • Demolition on the former main office is in full effect. Much of the construction currently is inside the building and behind the temporary wall near the cafeteria.
  • For picture updates of the renovation follow us on Twitter @wakefieldforest and @sbprindle.
