#tipfortoday as we start to prepare for #virtuallearning one practice that could be adopted at home, is a place where everyone “parks” their phones while they are working. This allows students and adults to remain more focused when working #mentalwellness @fcpsnews

Donate to "Collect for Kids" and provide school supplies for students!

With school starting virtually in the fall, there is even more need for all students to have basic school supplies at home in order to participate fully in class. The Foundation for FCPS is raising funds to purchase school supply kits that will be provided to the nearly 60,000 students who may not be able to afford to purchase their own.

A $50 contribution to Collect for Kids will provide school supplies for 5 students. Please help us make sure all students have what they need to be creative, and successful, in school. Thank you!
