Dear Fairfax Community-
Welcome back to school! This was my first opening at your new Superintendent and our first year in as long as I can remember that FCPS began the school year before Labor Day. I am happy to say our hardworking principals and staff, with your support, reported a very smooth transition and opening at our four schools.
It was so nice to meet many of you and our students at opening activities like the Daniels Run Welcome Walk (pictured with my gracious hosts, 2nd grade teachers Mrs. Wheeler and Ms. Andrukonis), Flavor of Fairfax, Eagles Fly By, Providence's K Safari, as well as the Back to School Nights. We invite our City of Fairfax families to keep in touch with the city schools. Please follow us on Twitter (@FairfaxSchools and I am @drphyllpajardo) and like us on Facebook. We are constantly updating our website and social media pages to keep you connected to our Fairfax Pyramid. Follow our #FairfaxFamily and #CitySchoolsProud!
We wish you a happy fall season-
Dr Phyllis Pajardo
Superintendent, City of Fairfax Schools
