PTA Variety Show

Our PTA Variety Show was a huge hit! We have so many talented students and staff!

TC Families,

As we begin planning for the upcoming school year, our staff collaborates regarding student placements.  A variety of factors such as student personalities, friendships, and academic abilities are considered as we create our new classes.  Other factors impacting the decision-making process of student class assignments are new student enrollments and teachers moving to a new assignment.     

Terra Centre families may assist in this process by sharing insights. Please note the following when providing information. We do not accept requests for specific teachers for the upcoming grade placement.  This includes hints that reference specific teachers.  We cannot guarantee friend requests nor exceptions for other students whereby there may be a conflict. We do our best to create a positive learning year for your child.

Please provide your input by submitting this form as it will ensure we have your request.  Please do not email us additional information.  Completion of the form is optional. However, the deadline for any correspondence is May 31st at 4 PM. Thank you for your input.

Have a great weekend!

Rebecca Gidoni, Principal

Teresa Lewis, Assistant Principal

A message from the TC PTA:

Staff Appreciation Week


For staff appreciation ideas, visit TC Staff Favorites on the PTA Website.

💪 Let's Finish the School Year Strong! Student attendance at school is important all year long, up to the last day of school. Attendance has an effect on student performance and on school accreditation. See how to:

  • Check your child’s attendance record.
  • Help your student stay engaged at school.
  • Report future absences.
  • Understand the FCPS school calendar.
