Message from Mrs. Castillo


I hope you had a good weekend! It is hard to believe that there are only ten days of school remaining in this school year. On Friday, we hosted previous Lemon Road students who are graduating Wednesday as a part of Marshall High School's Class of 2023. Tomorrow, we welcome our McLean High School graduates as well.  

This Friday is Field Day. A big thank you to Mr. Van Trees and Mr. Hickman who plan this day of great fun each year and parent volunteers. 

As a reminder to families, all library books are due now If your child has medication in the School Health Room, a parent must come to Lemon Road by Friday, June 16 to pick up the medication.

The Edge - Team Building with GMU


All classes will have their second team building day in collaboration with George Mason University's The Edge program.  The schedule is listed below.  On your child's day, please be sure they dress to be outside for 80 minutes (shorts, sneakers, and a breathable shirt) and bring both a full water bottle and hat.  Students will rotate in small groups between stations reinforcing the Portrait of a Graduate attributes.  


Preparing for Field Day


Each grade level will have a half day Field Day event on Friday run by staff and volunteers.  This is one of our favorite days of the year, but we need your help to ensure all students are prepared for the day!

Please have your children: 

- wear a bathing suit or clothing that can get wet

- bring a hat 

- wear closed toed sneakers that can get wet

- bring a full water bottle (students may refill throughout)

- K - 3 students apply sunscreen at home; 4-6 grade students may bring to apply for their afternoon

- bring a complete change of clothes packed in a separate plastic bag within their backpack including socks & shoes
