FCPS Budget Process – Please get involved!

1/27/2017 2:16 pm

Earlier this month, the FCPS Interim Superintendent presented the FCPS FY2018 budget. A significant shortfall in revenue to fund the budget is expected, and so the School Board is likely going to have to consider sweeping cuts to programs across the board including the language immersion program, AP/IB, AAP, strings, in addition to raising all fees (high school parking, athletics, community use, etc.) and increasing classroom sizes and/or reducing or eliminating teacher pay increases.

Have concerns about this?  Tell the School Board and Fairfax County Board of Supervisors how you feel!  Here is some information about what you can do to advocate for issues you care about.

Bingo Night - Prize Donations Needed

1/23/2017 11:29 pm

BINGO Night is just around the corner and it’s that time of year that we start collecting prizes!  Thanks to the kindness and generosity of our school families and community, we have been lucky enough to provide each player with some sort of prize, even if they did not win at BINGO and we want to continue that tradition.


If your child received duplicate gifts or simply something they don’t really care to have this year, please ask them to consider donating them to their school to help make this another fun community event for all. Also they may consider looking through their room at past received items that they have never opened or played with. These might make great homes to other kids at OHES!


Please drop your donations in the box labeled BINGO PRIZES in the school lobby at your convenience. Watch your News You Choose for more info about Bingo Night on February 24th! Contact: Beth Shalhoub at
