Team Building

Tomorrow begins the last week of the year and look forward to many celebrations before our students head off on summer break.  We anticipate many guests in our building and classrooms this week.  Please be sure to arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for parking and checking in with your ID in the lobby.  If you are joining us this week and have checked in using the ScholarChip system during this school year, save time by registering in advance for your visit using this link.  

Friday is the last day of school, and all FCPS schools dismiss early. Lemon Road will dismiss at 12:55 PM, and our front office will close at 1:30 so that all staff can attend our year-end celebration. 

Have a great final week of the 2022-23 school year!

Field Day - Tuesday

Field Day

Each grade level will have a half day Field Day Tuesday 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!  Remember to pack your child's lunch unless you pre-ordered a bagged lunch from the cafeteria. 

Please have your child: 

- 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

LRES PTA Updates

Campus Survival

One last week to go until summer! We hope you are looking forward to it and that your children are excited for all the fun activities planned this week!

  • Order your School Supplies now - the new school year will be here before we know it! Plan ahead by ordering next years school supplies through the PTA's vendor. Supplies ordered before July 31st will be delivered to your child's new classroom ready for the start of the new year. Each purchase also helps support the PTA's year round programs including our student scholarship fund. You can place your order here
  • Got an event idea or some feedback for the PTA? Want to get involved next year? We are planning events and committees for next year so now is a great time to let us know what you think we did well this year, where we can improve or what we are missing - and it's a great time to have a conversation about how you can get more involved in the new school year! Email us at to share your ideas on how we can make 2023-2024 an even better Lemon Road year!
