4 Things About Colvin Run Elementary

Academics

Colvin Run is a center for Fairfax County Advanced Academic Placement. It offers full-time advanced placement for eligible students that focuses on four core content areas. The program is designed to meet the needs of advanced learners.

Over the last 15 years, enrollment in these AAP programs have more than triple which is caused a swell in both the number of schools turned into centers and the number of schools that offer Level IV programs.

Eligible students with Level IV academic placement whose base school doesn’t offer Level IV classes may attend Colvin Run.

Colvin Run is one of the few elementary schools in the area that offers FLES or Foreign Languages in Elementary Schools. The program helps students learn a world language, in this case Spanish , through Science and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) integrated content.

There are many activities for students before, during, and after school:

  • Student Council Association -students can participate through classroom representatives and student officers. The SCA schedules various “spirit days” throughout the school year to generate school spirit.
  • Safety Patrol – Patrols support the staff and crossing guard during arrival and dismissal.

School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Colvin Run’ hours are Monday through Friday are 9:20 to 4:05 for grades K – 6th.

If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Colvin Run offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement has been linked to student achievement. When looking for a school for your kids you’re also looking for a school that’s a good fit for you as well.

The Colvin Run PTO supports a number of activities in the community including social events and fundraisers. Each school year the PTA offers a number of fee-based after-school enrichment programs. They vary year to year and range from science focused to athletics and the arts.

The school welcomes parents to set up a time with your child’s teacher to volunteer in the classroom, read a book to the class, or come in to have lunch with your child. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
