New Families at Churchill Road

Welcome New CRS Families

New to Churchill Road? Welcome! Below are some tips and information to help you get started as a parent new to CRS!

school Registration

You can find general registration instructions on the FCPS website, as well as information on the CRS website. Parents are encouraged to register as soon as possible (particularly for rising Kindergartners) - this helps the CRS administration plan staffing for the upcoming school year.

School Calendars

Help plan your family's schedule with the FPCS calendars, Churchill Road calendar, the Churchill Road bell schedule, and our PTA calendar.

Helpful Resources

Get ready for the school year with our Back to School checklist. Have questions or heard an acronym you don't know? Consult our FAQs - we might have the answer you need! New to the area? Check our list of local resources for suggestions. Find even more resources to help you and your child's educational experience at CRS on our parent and special education pages.

Stay In the Know

Register on our website and subscribe to our newsletter. You don't have to be a member of our PTA to create an account and receive the newsletter - though we would love for you to join us! Our PTA membership opens for new members to join (or current members to renew) in late August, usually the day of Open House.

 

Don't forget to create a new entry in our CRS Family Directory - it's how our Room Parents will stay in touch with you and keep you up-to-date on class/grade events.

Meet the Community

Attend a Principal's Coffee (or Pizza if in the evening) and stay for a PTA meeting - these are typically on the second Wednesday of each month, either at 8:45 a.m. or 7 p.m. Our New Family Outreach committee hosts two special Principal's Coffee/Pizza meetings, usually in October and January/February. We would love to see you there and answer any questions!
