We had a great time at our Military Family Game Night and Cookie Swap!
Terra Centre Families,
For the current school year, FCPS will be returning to its previous procedure for snow days — there will be no virtual learning days when school is closed due to bad weather.
During snow days, students may still access Tutor.com, complete any supplemental learning opportunities recommended by their teachers, and view educational programming (available virtually and on public access television channels):
- Elementary school instruction: Red Apple 21.
- Middle school instruction: Channel 25.
- High school instruction: Channel 99.
Eleven snow days are built into the existing FCPS calendar. Eliminating virtual learning days will allow us to maximize students’ in-person learning and provide equitable access to instruction and student services.
As temperatures drop, please be sure to send your children with coats and outerwear to keep them warm for outdoor activities. Bringing these additional items to and from school means that the Lost & Found is growing! Please be sure to label your student's items and encourage your child to check the Lost & Found for any missing items.
Rebecca Gidoni, Principal
Melanie Jewell, Acting Assistant Principal
I want to send a HUGE thank you to our Terra Centre family who came out in full support of our Fall Scholastic Book Fair! We met all of our sales goals, and put so many great books in our kids' hands! Even better, we raised a lot of money for our library which will directly put HUNDREDS of new books on our shelves for EVERYONE to enjoy! Thanks so much to every staff member, student, family, and parent volunteer who played a part! We look forward to seeing you again for our Spring Fair, which will happen the week before Spring Break! Happy Reading! -Allison Petruzzellis, LibrarianImportant Information
