Ravensworth Elementary School has been located for over 40 years in the Ravensworth Farms area of Fairfax County. Because of the Spanish partial-immersion and Special Education programs, the school currently serves students from across Fairfax County. Efforts are made to ensure that every student's family has an opportunity to participate in the large "community" of the Ravensworth family. The PTA supports a number of activities in our community including a Bingo Night, Family Fun Night, an Ice Cream Social and a Silent Auction/ International Night.
The Ravensworth PTA is extremely active and supportive of the school and its programs. Because of their contributions, the curricular offerings to students are expanded and enriched. They support cultural events and offerings to the students beyond those activities that are provided by FCPS. They provide a GROW team to create outdoor classrooms and landscaping and a Take-Home Reading program for students in first and second grade. Through fund raising efforts the PTA has supported the purchase of state of the art technology including SmartBoards, LCD Projectors and digital cameras for use with the student produced daily news program and for classroom activities.
Volunteers are an integral part of our programs as they work with students and volunteer in classrooms, sponsor Reflections and organize grade level events such as Snacks and Facts, Pioneer Day, Colonial Day and Renaissance Day.
Staff members work collaboratively to ensure that each child is viewed as a special person and that each child has a challenging educational program to realize their potential and foster individuality. We are convinced that children succeed when they believe they are valued and competent. Ravensworth is committed to providing a stimulating and challenging educational experience to every student where the climate is one of mutual respect and support.
