SOL Expedited Retakes
Dear PWCS Family-
The Virginia Board of Education recently passed a resolution that will allow eligible students the opportunity to retake a grade 3-8 Standards of Learning (SOL) test. Students are permitted what is called an "expedited retake" of a SOL test if they are passing the course associated with the test and:
  • Scored between 375 and 399 on their first attempt; or,
  • Did not pass their first attempt and have extenuating circumstances that warrant retesting; or,
  • Did not sit for the regularly scheduled test for legitimate reasons.
Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) does not endorse excessive or unnecessary testing of students. However, we believe this resolution may allow specific students to benefit from retesting, especially in cases where targeted subject-matter assistance can be provided.  
PWCS will administer expedited retakes of grade 3-8 SOL tests June 12-17. In the event your student does not pass a grade 3-8 SOL test this spring and you would like to have your student retested, PWCS asks that you read and complete Parts I and II of this form to indicate your consent. Have your student return the signed form to their school. PWCS cannot administer an expedited retake unless you have given prior consent. Please note that your consent can be withdrawn at any time and any decision to omit your student from participation in an expedited retake will not impact their grade or academic record.

 Estimada familia de PWCS:

Recientemente, la Junta de Educación de Virginia aprobó una resolución que permitirá que los alumnos elegibles tengan la oportunidad de retomar los exámenes de los Estándares de Aprendizaje (SOL, por sus siglas en inglés) para los grados 3-8. Se les permitirá "retomar anticipadamente" un examen SOL si están aprobando la clase del SOL y si:

  • Hubieran obtenido un puntaje entre 375 y 399 en el primer intento; o
  • Si no hubieran pasado el examen en el primer intento y existieran circunstancias extenuantes que les permitieran volver a tomarlo; o
  • No hubieran tomado el examen en la fecha establecida y tuvieran razones legítimas para no haberlo hecho.

Las Escuelas Públicas del Condado de Prince William (PWCS, por sus siglas en inglés) no están de acuerdo con dar a los estudiantes una cantidad excesiva o innecesaria de exámenes. Sin embargo, creemos que esta resolución permitirá a ciertos estudiantes beneficiarse al tomar nuevamente un examen, especialmente en aquellos casos en los que se les puede brindar apoyo específico en la asignatura.

PWCS administrará nuevamente los exámenes SOL para los grados 3-8 del 12 al 17 de junio. Si su estudiante no aprobara alguno ellos durante la primavera y usted deseara que volviera a tomarlos, le pedimos que lea y complete las partes I y II de este formulario para indicar que está de acuerdo. El formulario firmado debe ser entregado a la escuela. PWCS no puede administrar un examen nuevamente a menos que tenga su consentimiento previo. Sírvase notar que puede cambiar esta autorización en cualquier momento y el no permitir que participe nuevamente no afectará su calificación y su expediente académico.

6th Grade Students Visit Stadium
On Wednesday, April 22nd approximately 215 Fred M. Lynn Middle School students, with help from staff members and several parents, visited the Robert F. Kennedy soccer stadium in Washington, D.C. According to students, their favorite parts included touring the VIP rooms, seeing trophies from DC United wins, and practicing soccer drills. They even had the lucky opportunity to watch the team practice! Once back at school in their world language classes, the students discussed sports around the world and made connections between communities and cultures.
Thank you to all of the support from parents and staff. This was an amazing experience for our students. Thank you to the students for representing yourselves and our school community well. We are proud of you!

Students Visit White House

On Saturday, March 14th 47 Fred M. Lynn Middle School students and 19 staff members and parents visited the White House. Ms. Francesca Chery, The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Grant Coordinator and co-sponsor of the school's Hornet 21 after-school program, said, "The kids had a great time!"  "It was awesome!" said 6th grade student Douglas Garcia. According to other students, their favorite parts included the Blue room, seeing a painting of George Washington, and snapping “selfies” in front of the White House. They would definitely recommend for other students to apply for the field trip next year! Hornet 21, an after-school program funded by the 21st Century Learning grant, created this unique opportunity for the students.
On Saturday, students met at school for a bus trip to Washington, D.C. where they would visit the place President Obama calls home. The students appeared to recognize how lucky they were to live in close proximity to the nation’s capital, making such a trip possible. Students were dressed in their best attire and well-behaved. These students represented our Fred Lynn family outstandingly! Before the tour even officially began, the famous pup, Bo, was spotted on the White House lawn. Once inside, the tour consisted of the Blue, Red, Green, East, and China rooms as well as the State dining room, the entrance hall, and the Lincoln and Queen’s bedrooms. The afternoon concluded with a few pictures on the White House lawn. Students and teachers also visited the African Art museum before heading home.
Thank you to all of the support from parents and staff. This was an amazing experience for our students! Thank you to the students for representing yourselves and our school community well! We are proud of you!
