Mondays will be used for independent learning (asynchronous) with some students identified for teacher-directed specialized instruction/intervention. https://www.fcps.edu/returntoschool/return-school-questions-and-answers?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

PTA News...

Save the Date: Tuesday, September 29 – Join the HES PTA for our first general membership meeting.  We will be voting to approve the 20-21 budget and hosting a program focused on helping address the needs and concerns of our HES parents after the first few weeks of school. 

We have had some parents reach out regarding learning pods and social connections for the coming school year.  The PTA is unable to assist with families forming pods, but the PTA Board is working now to make a plan for bringing back as many PTA clubs as possible. Through clubs, we hope to promote more opportunities for social connection between students.  We are aiming for mid-October so keep your eyes peeled for more information!

PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  We hope to serve the Herndon Elementary community well this year.  Please reach out to any of your board members with any ideas, volunteer abilities, or feedback.  We look forward to a great year for Herndon Elementary!
