New Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct
Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is an important learning opportunity provided by Stafford County Public Schools. Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities provides opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in a context beyond the classroom, particularly in the areas of communication, collaboration, and leadership.
The Stafford County School Board recently approved an Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct for our students, staff and fans. This code of conduct will be shared with our community, coaches, students and parents over the summer and throughout the school year.
Please keep in mind that participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is not a right. Failure to meet expectations outlined in this document, as well as in School Board Policy and the Student Code of Conduct, will result in disciplinary action.
Work hard. Play hard. Represent us well!

2015 SUGGESTED SUMMER READING
Below is a link to our 2015 Summer Reading Lists. Please be advised that although the summer reading lists were designed with your child’s rising grade level in mind, don’t feel limited to only those titles. The books listed are just suggestions; keep in mind that wonderful titles exist on the lists both above and below your child’s grade. There are also wonderful titles that are not on the list at all! Some books may be best read aloud, others may be read independently. It all depends on your child’s individual interests and background knowledge.

2014-2015 SPECIAL EDUCATION PARENT INVOLVEMENT SURVEY
All parents of school-aged children and youth who receive special education services in Virginia’s schools are encouraged to complete the Virginia Department of Education’s annual Parent Involvement Survey.

The English and Spanish versions of the survey have been combined into one survey with both languages.
If you have questions related to the Parent Involvement Survey, please contact Hank Millward email@example.com at the Virginia Department of Education (804) 371-0525. Click here for the Parent Involvement Survey. Please complete the survey by September 30, 2015.
