  • Parents Should Make Requests Regarding Typical Preschool-Age Peers Program Starting June 1, 2018

    Typical peers serve as role models in a developmentally appropriate Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) preschool program at eight Fauquier County Public Schools elementary schools (Bradley, Brumfield, Coleman, Miller, Pearson, Pierce, Ritchie and Walter). ECSE classrooms can have up to eight students receiving special education services and four typical peers. Each child to be considered for a typical peer position must pass a developmental screening that looks at all areas of development. Screenings will be administered by the ECSE teachers in the fall of 2018 for the classroom in which the child may be placed. Children who pass the developmental screening may then be invited to a “play date” within the ECSE classroom. Typical peers must be at least three years six months by Sept. 30, 2018, and must be toilet trained.

  • Two Student Organizations at FHS Sponsor Successful Food Drive

    The Fauquier High School National Honor Society (NHS) and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) joined together to sponsor a “Mega Food Drive” in November. In just over two weeks, Nov. 1-16, NHS and SADD collected 4,769 food items, a record for the annual drive which was in its fifth year; last year’s drive brought in 2,753 food items. NHS and SADD advertised the food drive throughout the school so students, faculty and staff could all participate; however, students donated the majority of the goods.

  • LHS FFA Hosts Elementary Agriculture Day

    The C.L. Payne FFA Chapter invited fourth-grade students from surrounding elementary schools to the annual Liberty Elementary Agriculture Day (LEAD) in late September. Liberty students helped during the day with all of the stations and acted as tour guides helping the students through each station. The FFA students taught the elementary students about agriculture in everyday life. The event began with a presentation from the Mobile Dairy Classroom from Southland Dairy to teach how milk is produced and processed. Following that presentation the fourth-grade students split into smaller groups to go to separate stations including a hayride, hunting and fishing safety, all about FFA, welding safety, and rock painting.
