Your PTA Thanks YOU

    • Thank you to Nandita Kalyan who organized our Westbriar Spelling Bee on February 20th.  Thank you also to Ms. TamMrs. Fuselier, and Jan Srock who served as our Spelling Bee judges as well as Mr. Simms-Smith who served as our announcer.
    • Thank you to Amy Blas for putting an end to our winter doldrums and coming up with a great idea for our Westbriar community -- the 80s vs. Current Hits Dance on February 28th.  We enjoyed dancing the night away with our kiddos and had a great time reliving the "glory days of our youth" in our 80's attire!
    • Thank you to Crystal Petersen, who coached 14 Westbriar 6th graders to compete in the Virginia Science Olympiad, Division B, Fairfax Regional.  Our team did really well, placing 8th overall out of 24 middle and elementary school teams.  Next up:  Science Olympiad State Competition.  Good luck Falcons! 
    • Thank you to Crystal Petersen as well for coaching 16 of Westbriar's 5th and 6th graders from September until January to get them ready for the AMC 8, a national examination in mathematics for students in grade 8 or below.  Westbriar students were high achievers, averaging a 10.9 when the worldwide average for 5th and 6th graders was 8.5 and the worldwide average for all test takers, up to grade 8, was 9.43.  And thank you to Mrs. Cockerill for administering the AMC 8 test for Westbriar.
    • Thank you to Crystal Petersen for making copies every week for the PTA when called!  We know where she spends her Tuesdays ...!
    • Thank you to Suneeta Rana, our VP of Membership, for getting our Westbriar PTA named as a Fairfax County Membership All Star!  The award signifies that our membership has stayed the same or grown since last year.  Thank you, Suneeta!
