Dear Friends of FCPS!
Thank you for visiting our site! I hope that you'll find www.fcps1.org helpful and easy to navigate. You will perhaps notice that we are very proud of our student, teacher, and staff accomplishments, of which there are many! We are, however, constantly trying to improve both the service we provide to our students and parents, and the measurable outcomes that we constantly monitor. If you have suggestions for us, we are happy to listen!
I shared this quote with my staff recently because it gets to the heart of what we strive for in Fauquier County:
"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." - Mother Teresa
I want us to accomplish wonderful things, in a wonderful place, surrounded by wonderful students, teachers, and staff. This is what we should be striving toward, and this is where our focus should be. I/We have actually been accused of being "too positive," and not focusing enough on the work that needs to be done. Guilty as charged for being positive, but nothing could be further from the truth regarding the latter. We recognize the work we need to do: raise achievement levels for ALL kids, examine every challenge, every program, every method through the lens of equity, consider new and innovative ways to instruct kids, enhance the safety of our schools, and, above all, remember that the little things we do ARE critically important, and get us all closer to "something wonderful."
2018-2019 is going to be a great year! I am proud to be considered the ultimate cheerleader for FCPS! There is so much to be excited about!!
Dr. David Jeck
