Book Fair - March 12th - 20th
The whole school is excited about our upcoming Book Fair. An amazing selection of books is headed our way! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents.
Mark your calendar for our Family Event on Wednesday, March 18 where the whole family can join in the fun from 5:00-8:00. By visiting the teacher wish list board, you can contribute books to your child's classroom library. The PTA is sponsoring a Pizza and Dessert night as well at 6:30. Please be sure to preorder your pizza by March 13.

Blackboard Parent View Accounts
Parents can create their own account for FCPS 24-7 Learning (Blackboard). After completing this one time registration and having your account validated at school, you will have your own username and password to access all of your children's available courses, even if they attend different schools. You will also be able to update your children's emergency information through weCare@school. Updating weCare@school with the correct email address will ensure better communication via Keep in Touch. To register for an account go to http://fcps.blackboard.com Under the login boxes you will see a link to Parent Information. That link will take you to step-by-step instructions "Creating a New Parent View Account and First Time Login." Parents needing assistance with their already registered and validated accounts should complete the online Parent View Support Request ticket at the following link, http://itweb.fcps.edu/ParentView/
It’s that time of year when the PTA helps you shop for school supplies for the 2014-15 school year by buying a school supply pack. Be sure to visit www.cpespta.org for more information.
