Students recently took part in bullying lessons in English classes with school counselors. The counseling department is looking for feedback and information on bullying at Lanier. If you participated in those lessons (Socratic Seminars about bullying) in your English class, please take a few minutes to respond to the bullying lesson survey.
Library Parent Volunteers
We are also looking for parent volunteers to help throughout the school year in the library. Parents help with shelving, check in/checkout, special library projects, Pride Time Checkout help and other things as needed. If you are interested in volunteering please contact either librarian, Sean Hikosaka at -firstname.lastname@example.org or Lynn Murphy at email@example.com .

Family Life Education
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) provides a comprehensive, sequential Family Life Education (FLE) program for students in kindergarten through grade twelve. Instruction is seen as a partnership among parents and guardians, the school, and the community in supporting the learning essential to the development of strong families, positive relationships, and a healthy community.

Student Information System (SIS) Parent Accounts
Parents of Lanier students should have received a letter in late April 2015 containing information about their Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account. SIS Parent Accounts are an online tool providing parents the ability to access and view their child’s student information, including attendance, discipline and health records, report cards and more. The letter provided parents with directions on how to register. If you misplaced your letter, never received one, are a new Lanier parent, or your activation key expired, please bring your government-issued photo ID and visit the main office at 703-934-2400 for assistance.
For more information, check out the SIS Set-Up Video as well as Fairfax County Public Schools' resource page. If you already have an account, you can find the login page at https://sisparent.fcps.edu/
