RAVENSWORTH PTA DIRECTORY UPDATE

Last May, Governor Northam approved HB-1 Scholastic records, prohibiting access to directory information, which establishes that “no school shall disclose the address, phone number, or email address of a student”. As a result, the PTA will no longer be printing a student directory. We are looking into online directory options. 


STEP ON BOARD - SCHOOL BUS DRIVER CAREERS
School bus driving can be a rewarding career or a pathway to other opportunities within FCPS. It’s a perfect job for retirees, college students, career-switchers, parents, and grandparents.

We Couldn't Have Done It Without You!
PTA activities and initiatives could not succeed without the hard work of our volunteers. This Volunteer Shout Out goes to Sabrina Vant and Ursula Schuttinga. Thank you both for coordinating the annual Valentine Smencils Sale! The students love their Smencils and your hard work is greatly appreciated. Thank you as well to the volunteers who helped work the morning sales and kept everything running smoothly.
