Sorry for the 57 emails you're receiving tonight! Lots of different things to go out and we were trying to spread them out over the weekend but it didn't work so well. We're all volunteers and we only have so much time to work on this stuff. 😀And no...it's not 57 really, so now you feel like it's way less, right?!? 🤣

Delivery Drivers: Supporting Fairfax City School Students

Virtual learning isn’t the only change for some students this school year.

A Place To Stand will continue to provide an essential support service by delivering groceries to students and their families on a biweekly basis.

Please consider signing up to help deliver food to Fairfax City school students. Multiple dates available in Sept/Oct/Nov. Please visit the Sign Up Genius link below to help through A Place To Stand.

Hi Parents,

This is our first year doing a "virtual" Tears and Cheers, and we invite you to watch two short videos from our Principal, Dan Phillips, and our PTA President, Stacy Hall. Whether you're a kindergarten parent (which is our usual audience for Tears and Cheers), a new family to PES or a returning family, we hope you'll find these videos helpful!

https://youtu.be/EkxicdSZMUM (Principal Dan Phillips)

https://youtu.be/Q-RFJOg7edQ (PTA President Stacy Hall)

Thank you for taking the time to watch these videos and learn a little more about PES and the PTA. We look forwarding to see you virtually for now, and in person when possible!

Note: the Family Night Out mentioned in the PTA video is actually SUNDAY September 13, NOT Saturday as is stated in the video. We hope to see you there or while picking up your take out order!

Please be sure to visit our PTA site at https://providence.ptboard.com/ and use school code R3K45B.

There will be challenges, there will be mistakes, but there will also be great things that happen tomorrow when the kids return to school. Let's try to focus on the positive and lift up our kids, and give our teachers and staff a little leeway. Things will not be perfect but that is OK. This is the first day of many for distance learning and it will be OK! 😀

Thanks for all the votes! Clearly the traditional colors are the favorite 😀

Alright Panthers - we need your vote!! We will be offering masks (using our new logo!!) with a PTA membership or available as an add-on purchase. What color combination do you prefer? Navy/white or black/blue? Both colors are shown below, but the navy/white is what the actual masks will look like.

We're having trouble using the "poll" feature but please comment below instead, or "like" the color combination you prefer!

Thanks for telling us what you think!

Teacher assignments have been sent out!! It's like Christmas in August :-) Check your email!

Didn't receive yours? This email was just sent - look again tomorrow!

Dear Families,

2020 strikes again! It appears there was an issue with some of the class placement letters. We've contacted the Information Technology Department. We plan to re-send all placement letters tomorrow. No need to contact the school at this time. We are sorry for the confusion and delay.

For those with questions about laptops, here you go:

PES is giving a laptop to every student this year, regardless of their preference. The only exception is if a student withdrew for a private school or to homeschool. All PES students will get the chance to get a laptop. We are getting them in this month and should have details on pickup soon. Likely the last week of August or first week in September.

Stay tuned for more info. I know there are a lot of emails coming from both PES and the PTA but please bear with us! 😀

We are looking for contact information for the Cub Scout troop based at Providence for our current kindergartener to join next year (1st grade). If anyone can provide us a contact we would appreciate it. Our children go to Navy Elementary (people placed), but we want to do scouts in the local neighborhood. We missing the ability to connect at open house, please PM me if you have a lead. The Boy Scout website doesn’t list a Providence troop.
