A Message from Principal Yacubovich

back to learning

We are so excited to be learning together again.


Parents of English Learners:

Please join us for our school’s newest program, Parents as Educational Partners (PEP). Our first meeting is January 11th from 6 PM-7 PM at Pine Spring.

During the program, parents will…

  • learn about FCPS and school procedures
  • learn the English needed to communicate with the school
  • learn about the importance of parent involvement and participation
  • learn how to support their child academically at home

We hope to see you there. If you have any questions, please reach out to Ms. O’Connor (moconnor@fcps.edu) or Ms. Wallace (mnwallace1@fpcs.edu).
