Principal's Message

Good afternoon Roadrunner Families,

I hope everyone has enjoyed the unexpected snow days this week. A snow day is the closest you can ever get to being a child again and spending time throwing some snow and jumping in a pile will be a memory that will last a lifetime. I hope everyone spends a few moments enjoying these special days and making memories. We are still in Virginia, and the temperatures are projected to be warmer next week, followed by another week of frigid temperatures. Please dress your child appropriately and ensure they have layers to adjust to the changing temperatures.

Enjoy this three-day weekend and the weather. It's been two years since our last snowfall. Don't let this one pass you by.


Warmest Regard,

Your Principals

Dr. Legagneur, Ms. Champion, Ms. Kayes, Mr. Barton

January is National Mentor Month

Imagine a world where young people feel empowered, encouraged, and understood. Mentors can make that world a reality by helping young people find and follow their passions, excel in school, and thrive wherever they are.Learn more about Mentoring Month.

Research has shown that young people with at least one trusted mentor are less likely to skip school, less likely to use illegal drugs or drink alcohol, and more prepared to enter college or the workforce. Yet one in three children lack a mentor.

All it takes is one person to serve as a trusted adult to help change a young person’s path in life. Mentors provide attention, support, and enrichment, and help connect their mentees to resources that may help them on their journey in life.

FCPS’ MentorWorks program matches mentors with students in schools near where they live or work. They meet for at least 30 minutes a week. Learn more about how to become a mentor for an FCPS student. Please contact Martha Macdonald, mentoring specialist, for additional information at
