Louise Archer Updates - 5/17/24


Students loved observing our thirteen chicks over the past few weeks! They are now living on a farm in the Shenandoah area.


We are in a very busy time of year right now! SOL tests will wrap up next week and students are completing some additional end of year assessments. Our chorus, band, and strings programs had their concerts last week, highlighting our wonderful musical talent. In PE, students are getting prepared for field day, which will take place on Friday, May 31st. The PTA should be sending out a signup genius for volunteers this weekend to help with the stations and other needs for this day. We are so fortunate to have these wonderful opportunities for our students to highlight their growth and share in successes from the school year! Please review the calendar below for more upcoming end of year events.

SEL Screener Results

Students in grades 3-12 took the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Screener in March. The SEL Screener reports should be mailed directly to families. This website includes both the Parent Report as well as a Family Guide to support you in understanding results and ideas for talking with your student about their results. Both are available in multiple languages. To learn more about SEL and how we support students at school and at home please see the FCPS SEL website.
