Principal's Message

I realize that we are still processing the loss of Elijah (Eli) Medrano Pardo, one of our second grade students. Our hearts are with Eli’s family and friends during this very difficult time. If you are looking for resources you can use to support your child, please visit this website.

Teachers help a student plant a garden box

Kindergarten students are getting a hands-on experience with gardening using our outdoor plant boxes. Ms. Leahy and Ms. Whittaker are helping a student plant and water seedlings that will grow fruits and veggies!

📈 SOL Scores Posted in SIS ParentVUE

Families can find Standards of Learning (SOL) reports for spring testing in the SIS ParentVUE Documents section on or before the last day of school. Log in to your ParentVUE account to access the following:

  • For all students, the official SOL Score Report with overall and reporting category performance for all spring tests.
  • For grade 3-8 students, the SOL Growth Parent Report shows performance over time for state reading and math tests completed this school year.

Visit the FCPS website for additional information about spring assessment reporting practices and timelines.

Student Library Books are Due

The school library has stopped checking out books for the year, and all outstanding library books need to be turned in. Please help your child find any missing library books. Remember, they may be in the car, under the bed, on the patio, or even in your home bookshelf. If you are not able to find a missing book, please contact our librarian Ms. Crowe at kccrowe@fcps.edu to arrange for the book to be replaced.

Medication Pick Up

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school. Medication left in the health room after that time will be destroyed. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. 

If your student will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, the existing medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program, but you will need to pick up the medication on the last day of school and deliver the medication and completed forms to the summer learning site on the first day of the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Reminder: Check the Lost and Found

Coats and jackets organized in the Lost and Found of the cafeteria

We have reorganized our Lost and Found items in the cafeteria. They should now be easy to see and identify. Please remind your child to check the Lost and Found for missing coats, sweaters, shirts, water bottles, lunch boxes, and other items. More valuable items such as jewelry, electronics and keys are in the main office. Any items not claimed will be discarded on June 12.

💪 Let's Finish the School Year Strong!

Student attendance is important all year, up to the last day of school. Attendance affects student performance and 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.
