Lanier’s Intramural 5 on 5 Basketball Season kicks off in January!
Here is some important information to remember:
Come get fit after-school at Lanier Boot Camp! Lanier students can improve their strength, flexibility and athleticism with Mr. Wilkinson every Monday and/or Thursday through February 13th:)
Take advantage of this free opportunity now! New students are welcome to attend.
The rules are simple – a team of three players that scores the most goals in a three minute game wins, receiving 100 points for the victory, no points are awarded for a draw and a loss. There is no goal keeper and as in Futsal there is no “Offside” rule, the game is played on a basketball court with small goals. After each game the winner stays on the court and the next team in the list plays. The team that has just lost goes to the bottom of the list and waits for their next game. There is no limit on the number of games a team can play, so the more games a team plays and wins, the more points it racks up.
This 3 week tournament will happen in 2 phases – Open play for all teams will take place on January 21st and 28th and the Knockout Phase will take place on February 4th. Click on the link below to get the sign-up form!
The Lanier Futsal All-Stars will play against Stone Middle School on Friday, December 6th @ Stone and Friday, December 13th at Lanier. The games will begin at 7PM with tickets available at the door for $5.00. Money from the games will go to support After-School Programs at both Lanier and Stone Middle School. Last year, Lanier swept Stone, winning the boys’ and girls’ games. We will be looking to continue Lanier’s winning tradition against Stone in December:)
Congratulations to the following players who will represent Lanier against Stone:

The Intramural Futsal Regular Season ended this week with some teams posting big results!
“#TurnupCrew” were able to beat the “YOLO Swaggers” to send both teams into penalties to decide who would get Wednesday’s #1 seed for the playoffs. #TurnupCrew pulled out the victory in penalties, thanks to some strong goalkeeping by Ridge Pearson and a blinding shot by Matthew Pattarozzi. ”Panna Ole’” beat ”The Ballers” to secure Wednesday’s #3 seed and the “A-Team” stole Wednesday’s #4 seed by beating “The Screw-Ups” in their last game of the season and overcoming “The Ballers” in penalties.
“Titans” grabbed Thursday’s #4 seed in the playoffs by beating “#YOLO” and defeating “The Power Rangers” in penalties on Thursday. The Galacticos continued their winning ways by beating “The Power Rangers” 12-0. The Galacticos enter the playoffs as the only unbeaten team left in Intramural Futsal. Thursdays #2 seed, “Team 1″, pulled off a 3-2 victory over #3 seed, “The Oooh Kill ‘ems”, this week. Rusbak Akbar made an important save on Eliza Radoll’s upper 90 scorcher late in the game.
Final Results and Playoff Schedule (click below)
Almost 20 Lanier Middle School (LMS) Eco-Club students participated in a community work day in the City of Fairfax on Veteran’s Day sponsored by management consulting firm, Accenture and Virginia Lands and Waters.
Students and volunteers planted blueberry bushes and Sweetbay magnolia trees in and around Lanier’s bioretention cell. The bioretention cell, created earlier this year in partnership with Lands and Waters, includes indigenous plants to help reduce the runoff from the parking lot. Eight students, led by LMS special education science teacher Faiza Alam, 20 Accenture volunteers and two staff from Lands and Waters worked together on Monday to expand the project.
At Kutner Park, 10 students along with Accenture and Lands and Waters Volunteers worked to remove invasive species and plant native trees and bushes. This is the second consecutive year the three groups have worked together in environmental study and community volunteer projects.
“Students learn best when they are able to apply concepts learned in class to real life situation and they become good citizen by engaging in community service,” said Alam. “The Veteran’s Day Community Workday with Accenture on is a perfect example. The students are applying the science concept of understanding the ecosystem and human impact while being great environmental stewards.”
