Greetings Fox Families and Visitors,

Welcome to the home of the Foxes at Moss-Nuckols Elementary School! Here at Epic M-NES we pride ourselves in treating each child that comes through our doors as one of our own.  Indeed, my staff make Moss-Nuckols a Top Notch School dedicated to making our students feel successful in some way everyday.  I am proud to lead them as we continue with TeamLCPS on our Journey to Greatness! Together we will facilitate a school environment where we continue to work together to provide engaging, challenging and meaningful learning experiences for each child.

Moss-Nuckols has some exciting educational opportunities for our students from the Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom to the Spanish World Language program.  The learning environment must be as safe and secure as possible for all involved in the process of fostering academic success for our students. A team approach is necessary to create and maintain that desired learning environment. Consequently, I am committed to working with the staff, families, and other stakeholders to provide the best possible educational program for our students.

Communication plays an important role in the success of our school.  Your ideas and concerns matter and I welcome your input. You can always make an appointment to speak with me.  If you’re in the area and would like a tour, please pop on in! We just can’t hide our Fox Pride! Stay in tune with what’s happening in the Fox Den by keeping your contact information updated and visiting our school website or facebook page. You can also find out about us using #EpicMNES.

My education consists of a Master of Arts Degree from Central Michigan University and a Bachelor of Science Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.  I have enjoyed spending 29 wonderful years as an educator. I have one daughter and I am an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

I’m looking forward to a great school year! Our Foxes will be on the move!

With Fox Pride,

Anita R. Roane

Assistant Principal

Dear Moss-Nuckols Community,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter. I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve as the Assistant Principal at Moss-Nuckols Elementary School. I look forward to working with Ms. Roane, as well as the rest of our staff, to ensure our school continues to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.

My education includes a Master’s Degree from the University of Virginia and a Bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University. I have spent the entirety of my career in elementary school serving as a teacher, testing coordinator, interim administrator, and summer school/after school principal. When I am not at school, I love spending time with my wife, Kendal, and our animals, Bear and Max. I also love being active and being outdoors enjoying everything Virginia has to offer. You will also learn very quickly that I am a huge Washington Redskins fan (sorry Ms. Roane).

My goal as Assistant Principal is to create a learning environment that is safe and respectable, in order for your child to receive the best possible academic instruction. As an educator and instructional leader, I believe in approaching all situations with a student-centered, team approach.  Doing what is best for children is most important. I believe in the potential of each student, and realize we are not just preparing them for the next grade, but for the future.

I look forward to supporting the students, staff, and community of M-NES. I believe in open communication and a strong home to school connection. It is exciting to think about all that we will achieve working together. Let’s make this year great! Feel free to stop in and say hello, as my door is always open. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
