Welcome Back Students!
Capture the excitement of the first day of school by submitting your favorite pictures from the day on Twitter by using the hashtag #firstdayfairfax. We are inviting parents, teachers, staff, and students to participate. We will share some of the photos by retweeting them on the FCPS Twitter page, found at www.twitter.com/fcpsnews.
Full Length Mondays
Beginning in September, all Fairfax County elementary schools will have a standard length of day Monday through Friday. This means that we will no longer have early release on Monday afternoons. Floris Elementary will begin at 9:05 and dismiss at 3:55 Monday through Friday.
Read, read, read!
Have your children pick out some favorites, even if they want to reread books they already know. Read with your child and talk about the stories to increase fluency and deeper thinking. As an incentive, the public library has a program to encourage children to read. To sign up, go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/srp/ An online resource that will keep your child reading can be found at MyOn Books.
