Principal Message

As we approach spring, it's important to maintain a positive and respectful learning environment for all students at Lorton Station.  While we've observed some recent changes in behavior, we believe in working together to address these concerns and ensure a successful learning experience for everyone.

We encourage you to have open and positive conversations with your students at home to talk on T.R.A.C.K.S. which is our cultural focus at Lorton Station. Please emphasizing the following key points:

  • Consistent and punctual attendance: Regular attendance is crucial for academic success and participation in school activities. Please prioritize arriving on time and attending all scheduled classes. Missing 10 or more days of school is shown to impact student mental and academic well-being.
  • Respectful interactions: We foster a culture of mutual respect. Encourage your children to use respectful language and behave appropriately towards both peers and adults within the school community.
  • Maintaining a clean school environment: Taking pride in our school environment is essential. Please remind your children to clean up after themselves, especially in common areas like hallways and during lunch.


Warmest Regards,

Your Principals

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

 Look for the FCPS Family Engagement Survey This Sunday

Parents/caregivers will receive the FCPS’ Family Engagement Survey Sunday, March 3, from independent research firm K12 Insight. Please participate — your feedback is critical in helping to inform and improve practices to best support our students.

Taking this survey will also help strengthen the partnership between your family and our school. When that partnership is strong, students can experience a range of benefits including improved school readiness, higher student achievement, better social skills and behavior, and an increased likelihood of graduating high school.

The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete and will be available in 10 languages. Please visit the Family Engagement Survey webpage for more information. Your voice matters!

National School Social Work Week

March 3-9 is National School Social Work Week. Social workers in FCPS help to prevent social, emotional, and behavioral factors from affecting a student's ability to perform at their best. Their primary goal is to remove barriers that prevent a student from fulfilling their academic potential. Social workers are assigned to every school and center in the school system. Most social workers serve one to two sites. Learn more about the role of social workers in FCPS.



Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them on their journey to becoming lifelong readers. AND—as always—every purchase at the Fair benefits our school.   

Here’s what you need to know about the big event, which will take place-

March 7th and 8th-Preview Days

March 11th-15th-Sale Days

Friday, March 15th-Family Night of Shopping 6-8 pm


Say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy.

You can set up an ewallet.  It is easy and allows students to not worry about managing money at school.  You can also share the link with aunts, uncles, and grandparents!

If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Book Fair online. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Every online purchase will also benefit our school.

It’s Kindergarten Registration Time!

Attending kindergarten provides children with an opportunity to learn and practice the essential social, emotional, problem-solving, and self-regulation skills they will use throughout their lives. Our school typically conducts kindergarten registration events, including orientation, in the spring during March or April. Eligible children can also be registered throughout the summer, but registering your child early helps us plan, so that we have the teachers and resources needed on the first day of school. 

Prepare for registration by gathering documents and completing forms. We are happy to support families with registration and the transition to kindergarten. For more information in other languages, visit FCPS’ Kindergarten Registration webpage.

¡Es El Momento de Inscribirse al Kindergarten!

Asistir al kindergarten les ofrece a los niños la oportunidad de aprender y practicar las habilidades sociales, emocionales, de resolución de problemas y de autorregulación que usarán durante toda su vida. Nuestra escuela normalmente lleva a cabo eventos de registro para el kindergarten, incluyendo la orientación, en la primavera durante marzo o abril. Los niños que cumplen con los requisitos también pueden inscribirse durante el verano, pero inscribir a su hijo con anticipación nos ayuda a planificar, de modo que tengamos los maestros y los recursos necesarios el primer día de clases. 

Para prepararse para la inscripción, reúna los documentos y complete los formularios. Estamos encantados de ayudar a las familias con la inscripción y la transición al kindergarten. Para obtener más información en otros idiomas, visite la página web de FCPS Registro para el Kindergarten.
