2015 COLLECT FOR KIDS ~ SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Help us Collect School Supplies for Students in Need

As you are aware, not every student begins the school year with the school supplies they need to make the grade.  Together we can help make a greater difference in the lives of our students.  All school supplies collected will be distributed to students in need at the beginning of the school year.

Come out to Walmart, 11 Village Parkway (Stafford Lakes), Fredericksburg, on Saturday, August 8, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., for our annual Collect for Kids school supply drive.  This event has been scheduled to coincide with the Virginia Tax Free weekend.  Stafford County Fire and Rescue will have a fire truck and ambulance on display and will be cooking to collect funds for school supplies.  

Our business partners have been actively collecting school supplies and drop-off locations for this program include:  Apple Federal Credit Union, Chick-fil-A (Route 610 & Route 17), Celebrate Del Web, England Run Library, Five Below (Stafford Market Place), Hilldrup Moving and Storage, ISignFrame, Lupi Orthodontics, MVP Awards & Trophies, Porter Library, Rappahannock Orthodontics, Stafford County Government Center, Stafford County Safety Building, Stafford Hospital, Walmart (Stafford Lakes, Ferry Farm & Route 610), and University of Mary Washington.  

Please click here for additional information and addresses for drop off locations and general supply lists.  Additional details can also be found on the Apple Federal Credit Union website at https://www.applefcu.org/AppleWeb/CollectForKids. If you need additional information please contact the Public Information Office at (540) 658-6000.

Stafford High School Items Go On Auction Block

The surplus items from Stafford High School that are not being used in the new school this fall and are not going for use in other Stafford County Public Schools are being placed at auction on Public/Surplus, an on-line auction service.  To see these items and perhaps get your own piece of memorabilia from Stafford High School, go to: http://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/staffordschools,va/browse/homeMore...News Release 15-05
New Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct

Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is an important learning opportunity provided by Stafford County Public Schools.  Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities provides opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in a context beyond the classroom, particularly in the areas of communication, collaboration, and leadership.

The Stafford County School Board recently approved an Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct for our students, staff and fans.  This code of conduct will be shared with our community, coaches, students and parents over the summer and throughout the school year.

Please keep in mind that participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is not a right.  Failure to meet expectations outlined in this document, as well as in School Board Policy and the Student Code of Conduct, will result in disciplinary action.

Work hard. Play hard. Represent us well!

2014-2015 SPECIAL EDUCATION PARENT INVOLVEMENT SURVEY

All parents of school-aged children and youth who receive special education services in Virginia’s schools are encouraged to complete the Virginia Department of Education’s annual Parent Involvement Survey.

The English and Spanish versions of the survey have been combined into one survey with both languages.
 
If you have questions related to the Parent Involvement Survey, please contact Hank Millward hank.millward@doe.virginia.gov at the Virginia Department of Education (804) 371-0525.  Click here for the Parent Involvement Survey.
