Christena Smith, Kettle Run High School art teacher and lead art teacher for Fauquier County Public Schools, was named Secondary Division Art Educator of the Year for the 20 counties in the Blue Ridge Region at this year’s Virginia Art Education Association (VAEA) annual state conference, held Nov. 2 to 4. Several Fauquier County Public Schools art teachers attended the conference to learn about the changes in the Virginia visual arts standards of learning, review project-based learning strategies and get ideas for new lessons and techniques for the classroom.
Fauquier County Public Schools will transition to a new parent and staff notification system in November. Known as “Mass Notify,” the new messaging and alert system is the second component in the Blackboard Community Engagement solution, which includes five areas: web community (website), Mass Notify (alerts and messaging), social media manager, mobile communications (mobile app) and teacher communications (link to Blackboard Learn). The website component became operational at www.fcps1.org just over a year ago, and the other three components will be implemented by the end of this school year.
Parents, students, school employees and community members are invited to nominate a teacher for the 2018 Fauquier County Public Schools Teacher of the Year Award, presented in recognition of teachers who exemplify excellence in their profession. Recipient of the FCPS award will be nominated for The Washington Post Teacher of the Year Award, presented to one teacher from the DC/Maryland/Virginia region.

Special all the way around!” Congratulations Maci
