Congratulations to Mr. Jason Sachlis on his recognition as the September 2022 FCPS CARES Region 5 Recipient of the Month by the FCPS 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 Westfield High School parent.

"Mr. Sachlis goes above and beyond for his students. As a history teacher, he is known for his challenging but interesting classes. My daughter still shares stories of things she learned in his classes and his approach to challenging his students to learn and really develop their abilities to think. For students who know him, he's a trusted member of the Westfield HS staff, whom they can go to share stories with and ask for advice. When other staff at Westfield sometimes struggled to recognize, respect, and honor the diversity of our student body, Mr. Sachlis reinforced to his students that all are welcome, and if turned away elsewhere in the school, his room will always be a safe space for them to visit for reflection, silence, or prayer, whichever they want or need. When he's not in the classroom, he spends a great deal of time encouraging and coaching students on the football field as well. We really appreciate all he's done for our own daughter as well as the Westfield student body."
