"Pennies for Patients" Campaign Was a Great Success!
Thank you to all the families who contributed to this fundraising effort to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Together, we raised almost $3,000 (our original goal). Congratulations to third grade, who will receive a popcorn party for raising more than $600.
Snow Days Update: Monday, April 7th Will Be a FULL DAY for Elementary Students!
Please note that because of all of our extra snow days this year, school will now be OPEN for students on the Monday, April 7th Teacher Workday. It will be a full-length school day, NOT a regular Monday schedule. Additional snow days will impact the schedule further. Please watch the school website and KIT messages for updates.
Calling All Kindergarteners!
Do you have a child who will turn 5 before September 30, 2014? If so, please be sure to fill out the FCPS Survey of Preschool Children, which was sent home with all Lane students last week, and return it to school as soon as possible. If you don’t have a rising kindergartener yourself, please share the form with neighbors or friends who do. This form is important to us, as it helps us plan our kindergarten staff and classrooms for the coming year. We also use it to create a mailing list of rising kindergarten families so that we can keep them informed about upcoming events like Kindergarten Registration, which will be held on Monday, May 19th at 2:30 p.m. Parents may make individual appointments with our registrar, Mrs. Hummelt, ahead of time to complete the registration process. She can be reached at BHummelt@fcps.edu or by calling 703-924-7701.
Hayfield Middle School has planned a series of programs to assist 6th grade students and their parents with the transition including a Parent Coffee on Thursday, March 6th at 8:30 a.m. and a parent workshop entitled "Transition Tips" on Wednesday, April 23rd at 6:30 p.m. See the flier for details.

Would You Make a Good Watch D.O.G.?
If you are a father, grandfather, uncle, etc. of a current student, we would love to have you volunteer at Lane through our new program called Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great
Students). Check out our new Watch D.O.G.S. page for details.
Technology and Electronic Devices Update
Lane is working to make technology even more accessible to all our students. Read the parent letter to see how you can help.
Important Information about Registering a Personally Owned Electronic Device
Please remember that all personally owned electronic devices brought to school must be registered and all paperwork must be completely filled out, including the device’s MAC address. The MAC Address is the same as the device’s Wi-Fi address. Different devices store this information in different places; there is no uniform way to locate it. Therefore, we suggest that you search the Web for specific instructions on how to find the address on your specific device. Forms to register the device are located at the bottom of this page.
Information for New Parents Enrolling Students for the 2013-2014 School Year
We are still accepting registrations for the 2013-2014 school year! Information on required documents and forms is available on the main FCPS Student Registration page. If you would like to take a tour of the school, please e-mail our parent liaison, Melanie Crosby Hardy, at email@example.com to schedule.
