FMS Principal Announcement for 2017-18

June 29, 2017

Fairfield is happy to announce that Dr. Angela Thompson will be joining us again – this time as principal.  Here is a message from Dr. Thompson:


Falcon Family-

I am excited to share with you that it was announced today that I will be rejoining the Falcon Family as the principal of FMS for the 2017-2018 school year. I asked for the opportunity to rejoin the Falcon Family and work with the amazing leaders and teachers at Fairfield. It warms my heart to hear about how Fairfield teachers and admin are “rocking it out over there”– Once a Falcon, always a Falcon!

As the position opened,  I strongly felt that I did not want “us” to settle for less than the perfect principal to lead the school – there is so much going right at Fairfield and we need time to find the right match.  As Educational Specialist for Instructional Leadership, I know what a capable leader Art is and I also know the next leader would need to be just as strong and experienced. It is with this mindset, that I requested a one year period to temporarily leave the Office of Professional Development to serve as principal and join you in continuing to strive for excellence. Fairfield is an amazing school with gifted teachers and a growing momentum. By our working together this year, it allows us to be incredibly intentional in whom we place in the role of principal.  I asked for the opportunity to come home to Fairfield so we can work together in achieving while giving us the necessary time to be purposeful in identifying and supporting our new permanent principal.  I shared that if they would give us a year together not only will we be accredited, we will continue to have a legacy of strong leaders serving our school and community!

I believe in our students and what they can achieve; I believe in and respect our teachers and the great work they are doing daily; and, I believe in our staff and their commitment to create the best school in the district!

We will grow together; we will sweat the small stuff; and we will laugh and love as a family as we continue to build a community of deeper learning!  I am humbled by the blessing to have the opportunity to work alongside you again. During the 2017-2018 school year, we will be growing and developing our leaders in and out of the classroom.

Fairfield has and will continue to  be a standard of excellence and together we will stay focused on the journey, confident of the goal and proud of our students. TOGETHER we’ve got this!

I believe in the promise of Fairfield and I promise you that together we will achieve!

With Falcon Pride-

Angela Thompson

Video: Unified Basketball Game

February 16, 2017

CPS and Special Olympics Virginia launched a pilot Unified basketball league in January with four of our county’s 12 middle schools. Special Olympics Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team as a way to break down barriers and build meaningful relationships among young people. The first game of the season featured the Tuckahoe Patriots versus the Fairfield Falcons. The game ended in a tie, but everybody was a winner on this day.
