Majors achieve and thrive together with purpose and pride!

Greetings,  Majors and Families,

I can hardly believe that spring is around the corner, but here we are…only 25 days away; and spring sports and school activities have already begun.  With that, I wanted to take a moment to emphasize the importance of safety for our students. While we encourage participation and enthusiasm for after school extra-curricular activities and tutoring sessions, it is crucial that our students are always under the supervision of a responsible adult or coach. 

During the warmer months, students tend to want to hang around after school for a variety of reasons.  We kindly ask for your cooperation in reinforcing this message with your child.  Please help us remind them of the importance of adhering to safety guidelines and staying within sight of their designated supervisor at all times, especially after school when there are very few adults around.

By working together, we can create a positive and safe environment for our students to thrive in their athletic extra-curricular pursuits. Thank you for your continued support and involvement in our school community.

I look forward to seeing you soon at my last PTSA meeting/chat on March 13, 2024 at 6:00 pm in G100.

With Love and Major Pride,

Principal Rogers

THANK YOU TO OUR PTSA!

Thank you to Kristin Whitridge, our PTSA president, for presenting Melanie Cregger, our WAT teacher, with vocational supplies that were purchased through the PTSA mini grant.  WAT focuses on Virginia’s 22 Workplace Readiness Skills which help students gain knowledge about the world of work.  The supplies awarded through the mini grant will aid Ms. Cregger in teaching students job tasks.

Opioid Awareness and Community Conversation

Conversation to Raise Awareness of Fentanyl and Other Drugs

In this video, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid interviews the Fosters, a family who tragically lost their son Cayden to a half pill of fentanyl mistaken for Percocet. This heart-wrenching yet eye-opening video of their experience is essential to raise awareness among parents/caregivers and students about the dangers of fake painkillers.

Please join Dr. Reid on Wednesday, January 10, at 6:30 p.m., at Edison High School for a community conversation about opioid awareness. You may register to attend. However, registration is not required; it is simply for space considerations.

Majors achieve and thrive together with purpose and pride!

PTSA Meeting Tonight

Dear Mount Vernon High School Parents,  

 

Tonight, November 29th @ 6pm, the PTSA is hosting the College Funding Coach®, who will present their Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College workshop. There is no cost to attend.

 

"On average, tuition tends to increase about 8% per year. An 8% college inflation rate means that the cost of college doubles about every nine years. https://finaid.org/savings/tuition-inflation/ . Planning for these expenses has become essential. Some families have children attending college next year, and others have years to plan, but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs are the same.

 

The College Funding Coach® is here to help families figure out HOW to pay for it and still retire one day. You'll discover strategies that may enable you to qualify for financial aid, sources for scholarships, and strategies for maximizing your wealth and minimizing your tax exposure, giving you greater cash flow for funding a college education.

 

You can expect to learn the following:

  • A rundown of the latest legislative changes, including the implications of the FAFSA Simplification Act.
  • Strategies for parents who are looking to fund their student’s college education without destroying their plans and dreams for retirement.
  • College funding strategies for parents with students who DO and DO NOT qualify for financial aid.
  • The 13 most popular college funding financial vehicles explained and debunked.

This is a virtual event. Register HERE to join Mount Vernon High School on November 29th @ 6 PM. This is information you can't afford to miss! Also, please take a look around the company's website, College Funding Coach®, for helpful resources and information.

 Student Attendance and Engagement

During the Academic Matters segment of the November 9 School Board meeting, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid discussed student attendance and engagement. Attendance and absenteeism rates are one measure for Goal 2 of our 2023-30 Strategic Plan

Chronic absenteeism — which is defined as a student missing 10% or more of school for any reason — is a concern across Virginia school districts. Although FCPS continues to outperform the state average in attendance rates, we are tracking chronic absenteeism closely.

Data shows that:

  • Missing just 10% of school — just two days a month — negatively affects a student’s academic performance. 
  • Only 17% of students who were chronically absent in both kindergarten and first grade were reading proficiently in third grade, compared to 64% of those with good attendance.
  • Students who fail to read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely than students who achieve proficiency to drop out of high school.
  • By sixth grade, chronic absenteeism becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.

Attendance is critical for academic success!

Missing School Over the Holidays

Looking ahead to the holiday season, if missing school is unavoidable, please speak with your child’s teachers in advance to create a plan for making up missed work. However, a homework packet cannot make up for the interaction and learning that happens in the classroom.

Visit FCPS’ website for more attendance resources.
