4 Things About Little Run Elementary

Academics

Little Run has a Foreign Language in an Elementary School (FLES) program making it one of only a small percentage of Fairfax County elementary schools that offers foreign language. Students in Kindergarten through 6th-grade work on developing basic communicative skills in Spanish while reinforcing content from other subjects.

Little Run has an Advanced Academic Program for students in grades K-6. The school works with teachers to identify students that may benefit from the program, however, you can also request a screening of your child by contact the school directly. If your child is selected for the AAP program they’ll be pulled from class with other students throughout the week for those subjects.

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

  • Band, Chorus, and Strings – students in the upper grades may elect to participate in one or more music program in addition to general music
  • Safety Patrol – Patrols support the staff and crossing guard during arrival and dismissal.
  • Ladies of Literature and Real Men Read 
  • Morning News Show- student anchors run a morning news program each school day
  • SCA (Student Council Association) – made up of officers and representatives from each classroom. 
Enrollment

Most elementary schools in Fairfax County feed into one middle school and then students move on to the high school at the top of that pyramid. That isn’t the case here with Little Run. Students attending Little Run Elementary School will move through the pyramid system to Frost Middle School or Lake Braddock Secondary School which feed into Woodson High School and Lake Braddock High School, respectively.

Little Run services students living in a number of areas in Fairfax County, including parts of Burke, Annandale, and Fairfax.  Despite the many communities it serves Little Run is one of the smallest grade schools in the area with fewer than 400 students.

We always recommend you check out the Fairfax County Boundary Locator to confirm the schools serving a specific address before making any decision to buy or rent a home. 

School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Little Run’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:30 to 3:15 for grades K – 6. There are two part-time preschool programs operating between 9:05-12:25 and 12:30-3:50.

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.

Little 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 Little Run PTA supports a number of efforts to enrich the lives of the students, teachers, and families at the school. They sponsor a number of popular activities each year 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.

Parents are active participants in the daily school life of Little Run students. Volunteers are frequently seen in the building reading with students or supporting math instruction.

There are lots of opportunities to support your child and the school by volunteering in the lunchroom, office, and classrooms. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like. You can sign up to volunteer on the school website which is linked below.
