⌚Smart Watch Reminders

See below for a reminder of FCPS policy regarding smart watches (from the 2022-23 Student Rights and Responsibilities document):

Watches that serve a dual purpose (e.g., smart watch) may be worn; however, phone features (e.g., texting, Internet, calls, etc.) are to be off when phone use is prohibited. Students are prohibited from using phones, tablets, and other mobile devices in restrooms and locker rooms, unless there is a medical necessity or emergency.

👨‍🚒👩‍⚕️👮‍♂️Career Day Signup

We are currently recruiting for our 2023 Mosaic Elementary Career Fair. The fair will be held at Mosaic ES on March 30, 2023.

📝Current Student's Intention Form for the Next School Year

A pink Student's Intention form was sent home in your child's Wednesday folder last week. Please complete the form for each child you have at Mosaic ES and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible. This information is important as staffing is based on enrollment, and state regulations require that we determine the educational intentions of students leaving FCPS. Additionally, if you have moved, or plan on moving, please contact Jenny Davisson to update your information. Thank you!
