Important ROYAL Announcements!



Royal Fitness is the name of our high school STLP team and this is one of their projects they are organizing.  Their goal is to have all scholars and staff get a biometric reading so they can monitor the school progress with their efforts in trying to improve the health of our school.  Read more about Royal Fitness Day from FCPS and The Herald Leader.
