Volunteers needed for FIRST LEGO League Tournament Looking for volunteers to be judges for the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) regional tournament at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School on November 14 and 15. While some of the judging roles are technical, there are other roles that judge research presentations about this year’s theme, and another that focuses purely on a teamwork challenge! Time commitments are from 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday and/or Sunday, with judging shirts, coffee, and lunch all provided. Volunteers are also welcome to participate both days if they are available! Please contact Alex firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
Thanks to the Nancy & Steve Sprague Teacher Leadership Fund, FCEF will send 20 teachers to the GAFE summit being hosted at GMHS on November 7th & 8th. TJ teacher Amy Taliaferro states "I am writing to thank you for the Google Summit tickets that the Falls Church Educational Foundation has purchased for FCCPS teachers. My colleague, Alissa Hamby and I are thrilled to be able to attend and extend our knowledge of Google to personalize student instruction. With continual demands on our time during the week, we are eager to spend a weekend refining our technical skills and pondering our pedagogical approaches to digital learning.
This simply would not have been possible without your generous gift. We deeply appreciate your work and your donors' contributions on behalf of FCCPS teachers and students."
