Principal's Message

Good afternoon Roadrunner Families,

This week, Lorton Station celebrated the 100th DAY OF SCHOOL; led by our kindergarteners and staff, the school had a parade. The parade allowed each class to celebrate and showcase their 100th item, and we could see 100 cheerios, 100 marshmallows, 100 buttons, and 100 pictures; our students reflected 100 in several spectacular ways in the classroom.

Our 100th-day celebration highlighted how each day is critical to your student's academic and social progress. Every day a child misses impacts their educational growth and can lead to social and emotional anxiety. It is challenging for a child to miss multiple days and return to school without feeling they have missed something important the day before and feeling lost in the new topics in class. Don't hesitate to contact your teacher if your child will miss multiple days of school to ensure we can provide academic and social-emotional support upon their return.


Warmest Regard,

Your Principals

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

Lexia Night

FCPS funds the use of Lexia for all elementary and middle schools to use as part of their literacy instruction. Lexia is a computer-based program that supplements classroom instruction to help students develop literacy skills. It also provides teachers with data to identify students who need additional support, and the ability to know which specific concepts and skills to prioritize.Attend an information night on Monday, February 12, at 6:30 p.m., at Thoreau Middle School. Parents/caregivers will learn more about Lexia, and how FCPS is integrating it into the classroom and supporting student growth in reading. Attendees will also get tips for supporting their students at home.

Register to attend or submit a question in advance. Unable to attend in person? Join on Zoom

Integrating Lexia into the literacy curriculum aligns with the Virginia Literacy Act, FCPS’ Equitable Access to Literacy, and FCPS Strategic Plan Goal 3, which aims to have all students reading on level by the end of third grade.
