Also, you will receive an overview of the Kindergarten curriculum and school day. Attending parents will receive free materials that can be used to practice academic skills at home. A tour of the classrooms will wrap up an evening of information sharing that will help to prepare your child for their kindergarten experience.

5th Grade Promotion Ceremony

The  5th grade team is pleased to announce our upcoming 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony. This event will take place on Thursday, June 16 at 9:30 A.M. in the cafeteria. Invitations will be sent home with your child so please R.S.V.P accordingly so that we will have adequate seating and refreshments.  
We are requesting that the boys wear dress pants and a shirt with a collar. The girls are asked to wear a skirt or a dress with shoes that have a heel no more than one inch high. Due to the formal nature of this event, we are asking that students do not wear jeans, shorts, and t-shirts. However, they may bring such items to change into after the ceremony. We look forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with you and your family.

Penny Wars
For the month of May, the SCA will be sponsoring a fundraiser to Help End Child Hunger with ConAgra and Kid President.  We will be doing this by doing Penny Wars. Students will compete by grade level.  All pennies brought in will be positive points for their grade level. All silver coins will be negative points for the grade level chosen by the class. NO paper CASH will be accepted; coins only. We will be collecting the coins on Wednesday mornings in May (collection dates will be Wednesday May 4, Wednesday May 11, Wednesday May 18 and Wednesday May 25).  All money collected will be donated to the Feeding America charity. If you would like further information on Feeding America, visit
New from Mullen's Library

With the end of the school year rapidly approaching, the library is as busy as ever! Please make sure that your children return all of their library books by June 7. This includes books with the barcodes belonging to the library, as well as those with the green duct tape on the spine. If your child has lost a book, we will send home a paper with the amount of money we would need to purchase a new replacement copy.

Summer Reading Lists

It's that time of year again...your Summer Reading List is here! Below you will find a suggested list of books for your child to read over the summer that may help with maintaining or even improving their current reading level.

Remember to fill out the attached form as well so your child can receive credit for their summer reading when they return to school in the fall.

In addition to PWC's Summer Reading List, your local library has several reading programs that you and your child could take advantage of.

PWCS Dress Code
According to the Prince William County Dress Code, students’ dress and overall appearance must meet basic standards of health, safety, cleanliness, and decency. As the weather begins to change, please keep in mind that clothing and shoes must be appropriate for the school setting.
When selecting shorts, please remember that the length must be appropriate for school. Shorts can’t be higher than the child’s fingertips. Tops with spaghetti straps are not permitted. For safety while walking and playing, students must avoid wearing flip flops and sandals without a back strap. If your child’s dress or appearance does not meet PWC standards, he/she may be required to change into appropriate clothing, or the student may be sent home to be properly prepared for school. Your support with ensuring that your child is in compliance with the regulation is appreciated.
