Congratulations to Ms. Samantha Hartwell on her recognition as the May 2022 Region 3 FCPS CARES Recipient of the Month by the Department of Human Resources!

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story below, so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Below is the write-up submitted by a parent of a Saratoga Elementary School parent.

Ms. Hartwell is an incredible educator and has positively impacted our son this year in Kindergarten. She is very thoughtful and generous. This week, in particular, she helped our son process some big emotions concerning the death of loved ones. He was feeling very sad because the people he loves have been hurting from loss. She made him special, personalized postcards to tell family and friends he is thinking of them. Such a thoughtful and creative way to help him express emotions. The cherry on top, she also made ones for my daughter (age 4) so she can do the same as her brother. We can’t express enough how much we appreciate all she does to further our son’s (and all the other kids!) education. We continue to be in awe daily. Thank you, Ms. Hartwell!
