THIS SCHOOL YEAR TO END ONE DAY EARLIER

    The Fauquier County School Board voted last night to make Thursday, May 26, 2016, the last day of school and to make Friday, May 27, a Teacher Work Day if there are no more school days missed. That means Wednesday, May 25, and Thursday, May 26, will become half days for all schools and exam days for middle and high schools.

   SNEAKERS4FUNDS 

As you shop this summer and perhaps purchase new sneakers, please save  gently worn/used or new(all sizes) for our school (the fundraiser starts in Sept to end of Oct). Remember, these shoes are going to be repurposed and worn again so they have to be in the best condition possible.  The sneakers are shipped to micro-entrepreneurs in 25 developing nations. Due to systemic poverty, many families around the world do not have sufficient and sustaining work opportunities. This program gives them work opportunities.

 More info will be coming home in August, but we wanted parents to start saving them now.  This fundraiser will be used to purchase ChromeBooks for our school.  We could make $0.70 a pound by collecting them. We are asking our community, Scout Troops, churches and businesses to help us with this fundraiser. Mrs. Kelly, our ITRT person, will be the sponsor for this worthwhile, and unusual fundraiser.  We are very excited about this project as a way to purchase additional chrome books for other grade levels. The minimum amount that we must save is 2,500 lbs which would bring a profit of $1,750.00.  But they will accept as much as we can collect.  Mrs. Sydney Kelly, our computer rep, will be the sponsor.  She is looking for Business Partners, student groups (scouts, 4-H Clubs, Youth Groups) and churches to help with this project.  Please contact her at skelly@fcps1.org if interested.
