Finn Cook, a rising senior at Fauquier High School, received the Centurion Award at a Scholars Reception on June 9 at The Museum of American Finance on Wall Street in New York City. The award honored Cook for scoring 100 percent on the National Certified Financial Literacy Test. The reception was sponsored by Working in Support of Education (W!SE), a New York City-based educational not-for-profit focused on promoting student financial literacy nationwide.
At its June 13, 2017, meeting the Fauquier County School Board approved two revisions to the school year 2017-2018 calendar, which the board originally approved in January 2016: The week of spring break is changed to March 26-30, 2018, one week earlier than originally designated. The change aligns the FCPS spring break with that of the majority of surrounding school divisions and allows for employees to be off on Good Friday, a request made through the superintendent’s Advisory Committee for Educators and Staff (ACES).
