Principal Stewart wants the community to see her school as a partner in raising well-adjusted and well-equipped children. She encourages Lake Anne staff and families to build strong relationships and sets an example with her involvement. Recently, she supplemented regular monthly parent coffees with a “Cafecito,” complete with translators, to help the school’s large Spanish-speaking population keep in touch. Known for hiring great teachers, Principal Stewart showcases them at events like the “Best of Reston” Awards and empowers them to take risks. “She never shies away from projects that will enhance instruction,” said one.

Congratulations also to the other Lake Anne Elementary School staff members recognized at FCPS Honors!
