Dear Whitman Community,
As we end our second week of SOL testing, I just wanted to compliment our students on their hard work. Students are taking the tests seriously and our results are very good so far! We still have the mathematics and Civics (8th graders only) tests remaining to be administered over the next two weeks. Thank you for all you are doing to support our students as they demonstrate what they have learned this year!
In the interest of planning, the last week of school schedule is coming together. Here is what to expect!
June 7: 8th Grade Formal, 6:00 – 9:00 PM
June 10: 7th grade Awards Ceremony, 8th grade Activity Day; School-wide outside BBQ
June 11: 8th grade Orientation field trip to Mount Vernon HS
June 12: 7th grade Activity Day; 8th grade Awards Ceremony
June 13: Last day for students, 3 hour early release
We will be looking for parents to help with these events. A way to sign up to be a chaperone or help with the Activity Days will be sent out early next week. Thank you for all you do and have a great weekend!

FCPS Career Switcher Information Session – May 21, 2019
The Office of Talent Acquisition & Management (TAM) will host a Career Switcher Information Session at the Willow Oaks Administrative Center on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. This event will give military veterans, community members and anyone interested an opportunity to learn how to become a licensed Virginia teacher.
The information session will begin with presentations from the four approved Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) career switcher programs, Educate Virginia, Old Dominion University, Regent University and Shenandoah University. Troops to Teachers will also present their program offerings to our military veteran attendees. A panel of FCPS educators will share valuable information with attendees via Q&A fashion, followed by an opportunity to network with the five presenters, the FCPS licensure team and the substitute office.
We would like you to share this event information with your school community, parents, FCPS employees and anyone in your network seeking information on becoming a licensed Virginia teacher.
