Falls Church City Public Schools Food Services received top honors in the 2014 Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Food for Thought competition.

As you read this, probably most all of the George Mason Class of 2014 is - asleep.  180 seniors walked across the stage at DAR Constitution Hall before family, friends, and of course, their teachers before finally throwing their Mortar Boards high into the air - and quickly scurrying to get it back.

When the George Mason Girls Soccer team began their unprecedented streak of Virginia State Championships forward Ava Roth was a 5th grader at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School.  Now a junior, Ava kept the record going scoring both Mustang goals, including one from behind her back, in Mason's 2-1 title victory over Maggie Walker Governor's School. Great offense, greater defense, great team.

Bright Plan B Field Day a Big Success

The 2014 MEHMS Field Day started off the morning going to "Plan B" due to poor field conditions following a downpour of rain the night before.  But it didn't dampen the mood for the Huskies, sporting their brand new (and bright!) Field Day t-shirts, designed by 7th Grader James Obusan (pictured right).

Students participated in games indoors such as Indiana Jones, Richochet, Basketball, Volleyball, Gator Ball, and Nookem.  They were treated to popcorn at the concession stands, Sno-Cones, and Robeks Smoothies!  And last but not least, the Huskies all took a turn trying to dunk their teachers in the Dunk Tank!  Mrs. Carson's 6th grade homebase class dunked Science teacher Ms. Smolarek 12 times - more than any other class during the day!

A special thank you goes out to all of the 2014 MEHMS Field Day sponsors: MEH PTA, GM Athletics Boosters, Tori McKinney ROCK STAR Realty, DKG Design, Robeks, Mid Atlantic Adventures,

Starting this fall, the school day will begin later for most all Falls Church Public Schools. The moves come at the request of School Affiliate Organizations, including PTAs, who have been concerned with Mary Ellen Henderson's current 7:30 a.m. start time.

TJ students, teachers, and parents enjoyed an adventurous "World of Wonder" field day extravaganza. Students traveled through 16 stations such as the German Autobahn Race, Australian Kangaroo Hop, Italian Pasta Pull, Victoria Falls, and Volcano Country. Students had a blast, got soaked, and emerged better team members and friends.

Thomas Jefferson fifth graders have been saying, 'Goodbye' to a multitude of butterflies they have nurtured since they were...well, caterpillars.  The 5th grade team purchased the butterfly habitats and supplies through a PTA grant.
