Congratulations to Ms. Amanda Dey, Ms. Aly McCarty, and Ms. Sara Kugler on their May 2022 Region 2 FCPS CARES Recipients of the Month recognition by the Department of Human Resources!

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story below, so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Below is the write-up submitted by Woodburn Elementary School colleagues Robyn Fernandez and Molly Buchanan.

Amanda, Sara, and Aly have gone above and beyond to help their students, demonstrating a caring culture while improving attendance and building community in our school. The teachers raised funds and registered these students for soccer, provided them with uniforms and transportation, and fed them dinner. The teachers are taking their own personal time to support these students at practice and games on nights, weekends, and spring break. The students who could not otherwise participate in extracurricular activities due to their vulnerable family circumstances, including students who recently arrived in our country. They have started a program, which we can expand upon with the help of community partners that will enable more of our students who are at risk and who have not been able to participate in organized sports, to be able to enjoy after-school recreation. The teachers’ dedication, kindness, and caring are inspirational and life-changing for our students. We and our students are so lucky that they are part of Woodburn ES.
