Principal and Assistant Principal Appreciation Week

In honor of Principal and Assistant Principal Appreciation Week, the PTA and the Sunshine Committee have created a padlet. We want every student to leave a message for Mrs. Makrigiorgos and Mrs. Condra letting them know how much we appreciate them. Its going to be one big virtual hug!

  • Students will need to sign into Padlet with their FCPS Google accounts (@fcpsschools.net).
  • Please note that due to possible digital citizenship issues, every post will be reviewed before it becomes active in the Padlet. This means students may not see their posts appear immediately after recording a message, writing a note, drawing a picture etc. for Ms. Condra and Ms. Makrigiorgos.
