Justice Junction - Community News & Updates - January 6, 2023


January 6, 2023

Hello Justice HS Students, Families, and Community Members, 

We have successfully made it through our first week of 2023!  I also want to take this opportunity to thank all those teachers, students, families, friends, and community members that came together in the spirit of giving to help members of the Justice High School Community that needed help during this holiday season. Many needs were met, tears shed, and grateful hearts filled.


This winter/spring promises to be fun for all of our staff and students, with sports, science fairs, social events and musicals. Yesterday, students from Justice HS and Glasgow MS orchestra programs visited elementary schools within our Justice Pyramid by performing and sharing their love of instrumental music.  Below are pictures from the recruitment tour:

 tour 1   tour 2   tour 3


We have so many exciting opportunities happening in the next weeks. Please visit the school website and social media often so that you don’t miss a thing. We are definitely moving full steam ahead for the last half of this school year!

Read below for additional amazing opportunities and important news for students and parents. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Tiffany I. Narcisse, Principal

Empower our school, embrace our community, and educate to build positive futures as global citizens together.

High School Academy Open Houses

FCPS high school academies will hold open houses for interested students beginning in mid-January. A high school academy is a center within a high school that offers advanced technical and specialized courses that can prepare students for postsecondary education and/or career fields. Students enrolling in Academy elective courses will be provided with opportunities to participate in a variety of career experiences including shadowing, mentoring, and/or internships with local businesses.

Learn more and find the calendar of Academy Open Houses.


Lunch Service and Food Deliveries

Meals (breakfast & lunch) are free for every Justice HS student this year.  For safety reasons, we may not have food deliveries for students during the school day (example: Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Door Dash, etc.).  Students that have food delivered will have it confiscated. Parents are still allowed to drop off food and leave it in the main office for students to pick up during passing time. Please review this information with your child.  This information will also be announced daily on the morning announcements.

If your child has any special dietary needs, please contact our Administrative Assistant Glendi Cabrera at gycabreraher@fcps.edu and she will direct your concerns to our food services manager.

Please join us and our partners from the Fairfax County Police Department and Community Services Board as we discuss these topics as well as the ongoing opioid crisis. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of:

  • Alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, and opioid.
  • List what you can do as a caregiver.
  • How to identify and connect with community resources.












Justice High School Science Fair 2023

Science Department is excited to announce the Science Fair event, which will take place on February 1st, starting at 3:00 PM. Students, under teachers’ supervision, were able to design and conduct scientific research projects, and they are very enthusiastic to present their posters and to be interviewed by the judges, to compete for prizes and some will have the opportunity to go to the Regional Science Fair.

If you want to share our students’ enthusiasm or if you are curious to know more about students’ progress in learning scientific concepts, please join us at this event to judge their projects. We need volunteers and we will offer a short informative session prior to the event. Refreshments will be provided after the Science Fair.


If you are interested in supporting our students by being a judge, please send an email to the science fair co-directors, Ms. Cynthia Martinez (cmmartinez@fcps.edu) and Ms. Catalina Steriade (casteriade@fcps.edu), no later than January 25th.



Building and Renovation Plan Focuses on High Quality Facilities

Fairfax County Public Schools outlined plans to build three new elementary schools and to acquire land that will be used for a new high school during the School Board meeting on December 15th

Other projects include three new and/or repurposed school facilities, the renovation of 25 schools, and the relocation of modular buildings. Timelines for capital projects will be posted on CIP project web pages, where you can follow the progress of each approved project. 

The proposed CIP will be discussed at the January 10th School Board work session. A public hearing is scheduled for January 12th. The School Board is scheduled to take action on February 9th. Read more in the CIP news release.


School Improvements Supported by County Bonds

Capital projects reflect a $205 million investment approved by Fairfax County voters in the November 2021 bond referendum. 

Funding allocations to FCPS from bond sales have increased in recent years due to positive collaboration and partnerships between the Joint CIP Committee of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the School Board. FCPS appreciates the continued support from Fairfax County leadership.

Voters will have the opportunity to approve additional bond funding for school projects included in the CIP in November 2023, which will support the division’s ability to continue to work through construction and renovation needs. 


Justice Choir Chipotle Fundraiser - Saturday, January 7th





The Wolf Shack: School Store and Resource Pantry is opening! We are very excited to be able to establish this avenue to serve our school community. We plan to provide essential resources that students can easily collect, starting with food and toiletries and moving to clothing and academic, artistic, and athletic supplies. We will use the funds earned from the sale of the spirit-wear, snacks, and drinks to restock the pantry. The success of this endeavor is dependent upon the financial support and volunteerism of the students, staff, and community.

Please donate food, essentials, money, Amazon or Giant gift cards, and sign-up to volunteer. The "store-side" opened on November 16th; to continue being open regularly we will need additional and consistent volunteers. With your continued donations we can maintain needed provisions. THANK YOU!
