Concussion Education Training for 2014-15

Student athletes and parents, including all incoming 6th graders and/or anyone new to Prince William County Public Schools, must attend one face-to-face Concussion Education Training session prior to athletic tryouts. Sessions will be held in the cafeteria at LRMS beginning promptly at 7PM on the dates listed below. More information will be published as it becomes available.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the serious nature of the topic, the critical information presented with regard to such injuries, and the importance of seeing the program in its entirety, participants must be on time for the 7PM start of the presentation as the doors will be locked at 7:05PM, and no one will be admitted after the doors close. 

~ March 18, 2015

Student athletes and parents who have already attended a face-to-face training session in the past, including 7th and 8th graders, are eligible to take this year’s mandatory concussion training online. Click here to start the online training.

Student athletes who complete the Online Concussion Training should print the Completion Certificate and submit it along with a current and completed sports physical to the main office at LRMS prior to athletic tryouts. When you turn in the two forms at the front office, be sure to sign and date the ledger presented to you by front office staff to document your submissions.
Microsoft Office 365 Student Accounts

When we return from Winter Break, our Instructional Technology Coach (ITC) will be working with each grade level to help students activate and log in to their Office 365 accounts. Students will need to go through the procedure here at school in order to activate their accounts, so unless your child is in a class that has already participated an Office 365 session with Ms. Del Gaudio, you cannot yet activate the student account or download the software. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we roll out the program to our students as quickly and efficiently as possible. For more information about Microsoft Office 365, please visit the Instructional Technology page of the PWCS website.
MyPWCS Mobile App

As publicized in the district-wide announcement for PWCS, "the first generation MyPWCS mobile app is now available to download free from the iTunes App Store (for Apple products) or Android's Play Store. Search for PWCS, MyPWCS Blackboard." You may also click here to access the app in iTunes.
NJHS Peer Tutoring

The National Junior Honor Society is pleased to offer free peer tutoring on most Thursdays after school from 2:55-3:55.  If you wish to be tutored in French, Spanish, math, language arts, science, or social studies, you may sign up on Monday or Tuesday of each week that you plan to participate. You must sign up no later than the end of the school day on Tuesday in order to be tutored on the Thursday of the same week. The sign-up list is posted outside room B-6. Please bring plenty to work on, and ask your teacher for suggestions regarding what to bring, so that you are prepared to work with the tutor for the full hour. After signing up, if you find that you will be unable to attend your tutoring session, please cancel with Mrs. Bevington in room B-6 by the end of the day on Wednesday as a courtesy to your tutor.
