Special Education News
Just in case it was on anyone's calendar, I wanted to be sure you know that there is no Resource Night tonight and apologize for not thinking to send a message out earlier. Hoping that we can arrange for a panel of parents whose students have graduated from AHS before the end of the school year.
Also, a huge thank you to all who contributed for the staff appreciation luncheon last Friday! Families really came through with wonderful food and raffle donations, and staff members enjoyed themselves and expressed appreciation back to you!

FCPS budget continues to be underfunded
On May 2, The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors (BoS) adopted its FY2018 budget plan, FY2018 tax rates, and general budget transfer to Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), effective July 1. The real estate tax rate will remain at $1.13 per $100 of assessed value. The BoS approved a total general budget transfer of $2.17 billion to FCPS, an increase of 2.79 percent (about $52 million) over FY2017. FCPS funding will represent 52.8 percent of the County's overall general fund budget. Unfortunately, FCPS will still face a projected shortfall of $48.4 million that the Fairfax County School Board will have to address this month. To read more, click here.

After the ceremony, a reception in the cafeteria is provided with refreshments, conversation and candid photo taking. Each senior is to arrive in cap and gown at 6:40 p.m. Senior Reflections is produced by volunteer parents and students of Annandale High School and is not sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools.

Summer SAT Prep Class
The PTSA would like to determine if there is any interest in having a summer SAT prep class at Annandale HS. Thirty students just successfully completed a SAT prep class with Specifix Prep leading up to the May 6th SAT administration. Many of these students said that they DEFINITELY felt like the class helped them to be more successful and less stressed than they would have if they had not attended the class.
As part of the class, the students take three practice tests under testing conditions so that they know about and are comfortable with the format and procedures in advance. A minimum of twelve students are required to have the class. If you are interested in having your student enroll in a SAT Prep class over the summer at Annandale HS, please email Karen Curtin at firstname.lastname@example.org
