From the Principal's Desk

Hello Waterford Community -

For the last day of school tomorrow - we will be celebrating our 5th graders with an online awards and promotion ceremony.

In-person students will spend some time with their classes and then we will have some outdoor activities after lunch for the whole school to enjoy. Some of the activities tomorrow may have the students getting wet - so a towel and sunscreen are appropriate. We would like for all students to wear their Class T-Shirt to school!

Distance Learning students have some fun activities planned throughout the day to help end the year on a high note!

What a year it's been. Thank you to all of our students, staff, and families for all of your hard work, patience, and grace as we re-imagined school this year. We have all learned a great deal and I am looking forward to returning to a more typical school year in the Fall.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

-Andrew Heironimus

Student Chromebooks

Students will be able to keep their Chromebooks over the summer - there is no need to turn them in. If your child is not returning to Loudoun County Public Schools in the fall - please contact Mr. Heironimus so that we can arrange to collect the Chromebook.

Summer Reading Program

Each year, the Loudoun County Public Library offers a Summer Reading program for children (and adults!). This year's theme is "Wild About Reading" and sign-up begins on June 16. More information can be found on Mrs. Stark's website.

Did you know??? Each year, the library tracks the number of students that sign up for and participate in the Summer Reading program and awards the school with the highest level of participation with a trophy. Waterford won the trophy last year - and we are hopeful to retain our crown!
