  • FCPS to Switch Parent and Staff Mass Notification System

    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.

  • Thompson Elementary Hosts Kids' Conference

    Thompson Elementary School students explored a wide range of career options at a Kids’ Conference on Oct. 18 when over 20 community presenters described what their jobs entail. Students journeyed in groups from station to station to hear about a multitude of jobs and to ask questions of the men and women holding those jobs. The careers presented were as unique as the students learning about them. There was a horse trainer, a doctor, an attorney, a helicopter pilot and many others. Kindergartners through third graders went with their class to assigned stations while fourth and fifth graders could pre-select stations to visit with others from their grade level.
