Students across Fauquier County Public Schools celebrated Constitution Day on Friday, Sept. 16 in ways as varied as the 40 signatures on the historic document signed on Sept. 17, 1787, by delegates to the Constitutional Convention. Here are a few examples of the many activities occurring across the school division.
The Fauquier County Public Schools Division Spelling Bee will be held Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, at 10 a.m. at Taylor Middle School. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, at Taylor. The winner of this competition will advance to the 12th annual Free Lance-Star Regional Spelling Bee.

Fauquier County Public Schools will participate in a tornado drill on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. All schools and departments in the school division will participate. Tornadoes can occur any time of the year with little or no warning; knowing what to do when seconds count can save lives. The drill will provide an opportunity for Fauquier County Public Schools to practice the tornado emergency plan in order to promote readiness in the event of an actual emergency.
