Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is entering a multi-year transformation to align our classroom instruction with our goal for all students - Portrait of a Graduate. This transformation is called FCPSOn and will ensure that all students have access to an active and inspiring learning environment.
Technology will be an important component of this transformation - allowing teachers to personalize different learning activities for students.
Poplar Tree Elementary School, along with all schools in the Chantilly Pyramid will be participating in the Phase One pilot of this work.

The schools in the Chantilly Pyramid, with the support of the Chantilly Pyramid Literacy Team, are excited to be working together to present the Chantilly READS Challenge! Our goal is to promote a love of reading and support independent reading at all grade levels in all schools in the Chantilly Pyramid. The reading challenge is open to all K-12 students and staff members. Students and staff will log their individual reading minutes using a Google form. Our goal is to read 5,000,000 minutes from March 2016 through February 2017.
