Hello Herndon Parents and Friends:
Mr. Falkey and I are in the process of planning our 22nd Virtual Career Day! We always have parent participation in our annual event and this year is no exception! If you are interested in creating a short video explaining your career path, education requirements and highlight the fun and excitement you experience 😊 Please contact Ms. Bryant at email@example.com /703-326-3117. We also need a still photo of you with a solid background so our creative genius counselor (Mr. Falkey) can ‘place’ you in the gym…
The final date for submitting videos is April 19th. We look forward to hearing from MANY of you – students are always so excited to see their parents participate. It’s a great event!!AAP Spring Newsletter

Our Spring Book Fair is coming! Comb through your personal library and think about what you might be missing to prepare for a bright summer. From this Sunday, April 11 to Wednesday, April 14, you will be able to purchase books from the link available on our website through R.E.A.D. R.E.A.D.'s Book Bus will then deliver your order to Herndon Elementary on Monday, April 19 during School Picture Day (or you can choose to have them shipped to your home). One of the reasons we like to host our PTA Book Fair through R.E.A.D. is that not only will 20% of revenue from every book you buy at the book fair go back to the Herndon Elementary PTA, the remaining revenue will be used to buy a new, quality, culturally relevant book for the children R.E.A.D. serves in the NoVA area. Spread the love of learning this Spring across our area and check out some books at https://herndonespta.com/events/bookfair/.Chess Bee Academy Starts this Thursday
