Get Involved and Support Lane

At Lane, Parents and Guardians Are Part of the Team!

Parents are always welcome at Lane and are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s education, both at school and at home. After all, you were your child’s first teacher and you know a lot about his or her individual learning styles, strengths and weaknesses, and emotional needs. Communicating these needs to your child’s teacher can be a critical contribution to your child’s academic success.

If you have concerns about your child, you are always welcome to schedule a conference with the teacher to talk about those concerns. Teachers welcome e-mails and notes and will respond in a timely manner. If some cases, other specialists, such as special-education teachers, may be brought into the discussion as well. Ensuring your child’s academic success is our ultimate goal, and it is definitely a team effort!

For those parents who would like to get involved and help our students and staff members on a broader basis, we offer a variety of volunteer opportunities. We have an active PTA that welcomes new members and is always looking for new ideas and new volunteers.

Parent Volunteers 

Volunteers are essential to the success of Fairfax County Public Schools! Many enriching and worthwhile experiences are afforded to our children through the volunteer help from parents. Every day, volunteers change the lives of students across FCPS, and we offer several ways for people in the community to get involved.

Are you interested in helping out at Lane? Please contact our family liaison, Melanie Crosby Hardy, at macrosby@fcps.edu for more information.
