Learning Through Play for 70 Years

2016-2017 Update

Field trips, hours of play, conversations over snack, and fun movement in the Activity Room… we are ready for a wonderful new year at ACPS!

Melissa Kuhn is returning from last year and will be teaching both 2’s classes, the MTW Bees class and ThF Fireflies class.

Dawn Volk joins us from Fairfax County Public Schools as our TThF Grasshopper’s teacher and Anne Ford comes back to preschool from time as a Kindergarten teacher to round out the 3’s team as the MWF Ladybug’s teacher.

Sue Ann Craig and Amy Quigley round out the classroom teaching team, remaining in their roles as the fabulous 4’s team, the MTWF Spiders and MTWTF Dragonflies, respectively.

Fauzia Rafiq will be our new Activity Room teacher, looking forward to engaging our students with fun activities inside the school and out.

Marie Sloane and Keow Essig have been working a lot this summer to keep things running smoothly; many of us have seen them several times over the summer!  Marie will continue to head our amazing team of teachers as the Director of Education, and Keow maintains her role of balancing multiple jobs at once as the Administrative Assistant.
