School Announcements
Remembering Ms. Bozzard

Dear Challenger Families, 

On Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 4:30 we will host a Celebration of Life/Remembrance Ceremony for Ms. Bozzard. If you would like to participate, we ask that you bring a flower to plant on the school grounds at 4:30. You will also need to bring a hand shovel. Participants may quietly reflect or say a word or two aloud. This will be a quiet reflection so everyone may have personal reflection time. Our hope would be that flowers would bloom each year as a remembrance. 

Also, some families and staff have asked about donations. We thought it would be appropriate to accept donations to purchase a buddy bench in remembrance of Ms. Bozzard. The buddy bench would be placed on the playground and if a child needs a friend to play with they sit on the bench and other children come up to them and ask them to play. If you are interested in donating towards the buddy bench, please make a check out to McAuliffe Elementary School and in the memo write for the buddy bench.


 

Welcome Ms. Thomas
We would like to welcome Ms. Thomas, School Counselor, to the McAuliffe Family.  Read more HERE.



 
Tdap Immunization Required for Sixth Graders
Parents are reminded that all students entering sixth grade in Prince William County Public Schools this fall must present proof that they have had a booster dose of the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine before entering the sixth grade.

May 16, 2016

Experts say the Tdap booster gives adolescents added protection against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (better known as whooping cough). These potentially serious ailments are largely preventable with proper vaccination.

Children must meet all Virginia school immunization requirements. The law changed in 2014 to require Tdap vaccination of all sixth graders, including those under the age of 11. To avoid the last-minute rush before the start of school, parents should consider getting the Tdap booster for their child as soon as possible to fulfill this Virginia requirement.

Tdap boosters may be obtained from a doctor, military clinics, or the Prince William Health District, which will provide written documentation that the requirement has been met. If completed before the end of this school year, documentation should be taken to the nurse at the school where the child currently attends. The school nurse will notify the child’s intended middle school that the vaccine has been received. This will ensure there will be no delay in your child’s admission to middle school on their important first day of school on August 29.

The Prince William County Health District may be reached at the following locations and telephone numbers: 9301 Lee Avenue, Manassas, VA 20110, 703.792.6301, and 4001 Prince William Parkway, Ste. 101, Woodbridge, VA 22192, 703.792.7300.

CMES - An Energy Star School
McAuliffe has been recognized by the school division and the Environmental Protection Agency as an EPA ENERGY STAR school. We are one of fifteen schools in Prince William to earn this distinction through our concerted efforts to conserve and use our energy resources efficiently. The efforts of the schools in our division this year have created savings in the school system's budget in the amount of $8,000,000! Prince William County Schools are the leaders in the state of Virginia in the effort, and our school is one of the highest performing in this endeavor. Thank you to our students and staff for your efforts to "turn it off" when you are done!!!

Money not spent on energy costs can be better invested in the classroom. Read more.
