First, something fun! Go to the site below to see a short video highlighting a Writers Celebration that some of our 2nd graders participated in prior to Winter Break. We’re so proud of them! Thank you Mrs. Kheradmand, Mrs. Fallas, Ms. Dick & Mrs. McKeown.
After a very long break, which I think both kids and teachers were happy about, we entered 2010. I’m pleased to say that we hit the ground running with great learning activities. I spied 5th graders editing video using MovieMaker in the computer lab, all upper grade students beginning their gymnastics unit in P.E., and sixth graders creating brochures advertising the advantages of living in the original 13 colonies. Another great week!
As you know, Dr. Dale presented his budget proposal for next year to the School Board on Thursday evening. All information related to this, including his presentation is located on the FCPS website (www.fcps.edu). Please stay informed as there are changes coming.
