Mosaic's Field Day is coming up on June 8 and parent volunteers help ensure the day runs smoothly! Available slots can be found on our volunteer sign-up form. Thank you in advance for your time and help!💡Young Scholars Engineering Club
The 6th Grade Young Scholars presented their designs to an audience of their teachers, parents, and peers on Thursday, May 8th. The students have been learning how to use the Engineering Design Process to create a working scale model of a vertical farm in Mr. White’s classroom. They identified a problem, designed a solution, tested their idea, and revised their creations. The Young Scholars also used their new LEGO Spike kits to build and code a machine that would automate a function within their farm.
The program was funded by a grant from Educate Fairfax.🍎News from the Mosaic PTA

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is now accepting applications from parents for tutoring microgrants for their children through the K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants program.
The program was created to help Virginia families address the impact of the pandemic on student learning. It provides $1,500 grants to parents of school-age children for tutoring in specific subjects. Children from homes with family incomes at 300% or less of the federal poverty level may qualify for $3,000 grants.
Available services include in-person, online, and hybrid tutoring provided one-on-one or in small group or large group settings. The first step in the process is to visit VDOE’s K-12 Learning Acceleration Grants page and create an application account.🐺Summer Performances at Wolf Trap
