The Fourth Annual Regional Science & Engineering Fair, junior division (6th-8th grades), will be held Saturday, April 29, in the Fauquier High School cafeteria, featuring more than 80 middle school presenters from public and private schools in Fauquier County. Judging, which is closed to the public, will occur between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The public is invited to visit the fair from 1:30-2:30 p.m., followed by the awards ceremony which will feature a brief keynote address by Dr. David Jeck, division superintendent of Fauquier County Public Schools.
One could argue that Latin is behind Kim Matthias’ selection as the 2017 Teacher of the Year for Fauquier County Public Schools. She didn’t teach it. She almost failed it. Talis vita est. (That means “Such is life” in Latin, for any who might sympathize with Matthias’ early-high-school struggle with the ancient language.)
The Region IV Virginia Association of School Superintendents (VASS) has named Dr. David Jeck, su-perintendent of Fauquier County Public Schools, as the 2018 Superintendent of the Year for Region IV. Dr. Peter Noonan, superintendent of the City of Fairfax Schools and chairman of Region IV VASS, made the announcement on March 22. “As the regional superintendent’s group, we are so proud of the work Dr. Jeck does, and he serves as an outstanding representative of our team,” Noonan said.
