READ, READ, READ!
Summer reading lists for rising sixth graders, as well as older students, have been posted on the FCPS website. All students entering the sixth grade in the fall MUST read at least one book over the summer to use in a project once school resumes. On the website, you'll also find additional information about other available reading lists and summer reading programs, such as the one sponsored by the Fairfax County Public Library.
Looking for books for younger students to read out in the sun or at home? Click here for some grade-level suggestions from Lane Librarian Mrs. Chozick.

School will officially open for the 2015 - 2016 school year on Tuesday, September 8th at 9:15 a.m. The first day is always hectic, and parking will be limited. If you plan to bring your child to school that day, please walk or carpool if possible and allow extra time for increased school traffic.
School will dismiss on the first day at the regular time - 4 p.m. Please note that this is five minutes later than last year's dismissal time. Bell schedules across the county will be changing this year to accommodate the switch to later start times for high schools.
