I am a new teacher so this was my first school-wide social event. I was amazed by the many hands that made this event so enjoyable. I was able to meet some students that I don’t teach, and some colleagues that I have only previously said hello to in the hallway. I had some wonderful conversations today and felt so lucky to be a part of the school family." - Fairfax County Public School teacher, October 2021
