  • 6th Grade
    Happy Spring Everyone!!!  Just a reminder that rising 7th graders will have a great opportunity to participate in learning experiences throughout the summer at the FCPS Summer Academy (SA).  This year, we are again offering SA for rising 6th through 8th graders.  SA will be held at Robert E. Aylor MS July 8th - 25th. (Monday-Thursday) from 8:30 AM to 10:00 PM.  This SA will be a “camp-like” learning experience, and FCPS will provide transportation.  If your scholar would like to attend, please let me know!!  This month we are returning from spring break on April 8th and have April 15th off for planning.  So, this is going to be another fast month!! 

    Another reminder is that all rising 7th graders will need:

    • Tdap booster (elementary get DTaP, parents get this confused all the time)
    • 1st dose meningococcal (2nd dose will be 12th gr)
    • HPV: optional

    If you need anything at all, please feel free to reach out anytime!  Have a great month!

    7th Grade

    It is now April and spring is in full bloom.  As this school year continues to wind down, I want to mention two opportunities for our seventh grade scholars.  First is our FCPS Summer Academy (SA).  This year, we are again offering SA for rising 6th through 8th graders.  SA will be held at Robert E. Aylor MS July 8th - 25th. (Monday-Thursday) from 8:30 AM to 10:00 PM.  This SA will be a “camp-like” learning experience, and FCPS will provide transportation. In addition, I want to mention the 2024 Charting Pathways Summer Academy (CPSA).  CPSA is available for rising 8th and 9th graders and will be at Dowell J. Howard Center from June 10-27 Monday-Thursday from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM.  FCPS will be providing transportation, breakfast and lunch.  If your child would like to attend either or both of these camps, please let me know.  If you would like to meet and conference with your child’s teachers, please let me know.  And as always, if I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.  

    Best Regards,

    8th Grade

    Hello everyone! I can’t believe we are already in the month of April. Welcome back from Spring Break, I hope everyone took some time to relax and reset for the last part of this school year! Lots to come in the 8th grade. April is the last month before our SOL testing in the month of May. Please continue to work with your teachers in getting caught up in any missing work. Remember, this is your last quarter of 8th grade. Make sure to continue your hard work until the end of the quarter. Reminder to all scholars that there is no school on Monday, April 15. Let me know if you need assistance with anything!

    Happy April! Use the QR code below to schedule a time to meet with me.
