Did You Know....

Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Ph.D with Psychology Today writes, “Although memory is usually thought of as applying to past events, a variant called “prospective memory" (PM) applies to future actions. Your mind may shoot backward when you try to recall whether you actually turned the lights off before you left your home for the day. However, it also shoots forward prior to leaving your home as you make the vow to hit the off switch before your foot crosses the threshold. Here are 3 key ways to remembering your intentions.

Partners in Safe Teen Driving | February 6 

As part of the FCPS Health and PE curriculum, all 10th grade students enrolled in Health & PE 10 complete one quarter of classroom Driver Education.  As part of the Driver Education curriculum, students are required to attend the Partners in Safe Teen Driving Presentation, in person, with at least one parent or guardian. Successful completion of classroom Driver Education AND attendance by the student and parent/guardian enables the student to obtain the DEC-District 8 completion card needed to pursue obtaining a Virginia driver’s license.  While it is recommended that the PSTD seminar requirement be satisfied during the quarter in which the student is taking classroom driver education, students are welcome to attend any quarter within their 10th grade year. All seminars will be held in-person from 6:30-8:00 PM in the auditorium. Please arrive early.

Doors will close promptly at 6:30. Attendees who arrive late will not be allowed entry and will not earn credit for attending.

Important: Students who successfully complete their classroom driver education quarter but have not satisfied the PSTD requirement will have earned an incomplete for the class grade until the requirement is met.
