Mount Daniel School

Danny the Hippo, the popular, lovable purple mascot of Mount Daniel School celebrated his 56th Birthday today. And this celebration was one for the history books.

Mount Daniel Elementary kindergarten teacher Nan Hof is the 2015 Falls Church City Public Schools Washington Post Agnes Meyer Outstanding Teacher of the Year.

With some hugs, a skip, a jump, and even a high-five from a giraffe, Jessie Thackrey Preschoolers arrived Monday for their first day in their new modern and secure school on Cherry Street.

FCCPS kicked off the school year with high hopes for all students and a mixture of excitement, anxiety and wonder among the young people and their parents.
