2018-2019 School Calendar Update!
11/21/2017 4:05 pm
The Fairfax County School Board held a November 13 work session to discuss proposed options for the 2018-2019 school year calendar. As a result, the School Board is introducing calendar option D during its December 7 regular meeting for consideration and public comment. The School Board is scheduled to make its final decision during its December 14 regular meeting.
Please note that county residents can attend School Board work sessions, but are not allowed to speak. However, county residents are allowed to speak during regular meetings. It is important for PTA members to get and stay engaged when such issues benefit or adversely affect their students, teachers, schools, families, and/or communities. Reserve your speaking slot for either the December 7 or December 14 regular meetings of the School Board and share your story about your students, teachers, and schools.

Box Tops Due Tomorrow!
10/19/2017 6:44 pm
We are Girl Scout Troop 2090 and we are working with the PTA to collect Box Tops this year.
We are doing this because we want to help raise money for the school for fun activities and materials for students and teachers.
You can help by clipping Box Tops, making sure they’re not expired and sending them in a baggie with your teacher’s name on it. Please send them in by October 20th.
If each student sends in just about 30 Box Tops we will make our goal of $3000! The 3 classes with the most Box Tops collected get to have a pizza party!
Thank you for your support and remember to keep saving them for the spring contest!
Girl Scout Troop 2090 (6th grade)
