Oak Hill Retirements

We want to recognize and congratulate the following staff members who have retired from Oak Hill this year:  Nick Kokulis (6th Grade Teacher), who worked at Oak Hill for 33 years, Sharon Iacangelo (IA), 18 years, and Lynne Hershey (IA), 12 years.  We thank each of them for their service and dedication to all of the students here at Oak Hill.  We wish them the best of luck in their respective retirements and future endeavors.

G Suite for Education Summer Access

G Suite for Education is available to your student over the summer, as it has been in the past.  All files created by, or shared with, your student will continue to be available to them.

We encourage you to explore G Suite for Education with your children by logging in together. We suggest having your student log in to his or her FCPS G Suite for Education account at home to show you what they are currently working on.

Your student will use his or her network login credentials to access G Suite for Education. Students in grades 4-12 have the ability to reset their password using the Account Recovery service; however recovery options must be set up in advance. Your student can visit the same link to set up those options.

Summer is also the perfect time to revisit the rules in your household for technology and media use. The FCPS Digital Citizenship website has Device Contracts and Family Media Agreements (K-5, 6-8 and 9-12) that can help you guide family conversations. Translations of these documents are available on the FCPS 24-7 ParentVUE Digital Citizenship curriculum tab. There is also a free online Digital Citizenship course available for parents and their children to work through together.

More information on G Suite for Education can be found on the FCPS Website.

Principals Message

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support! As end of the year activities and performances approach us, it reminds me that not only do we have talented staff who organize and plan such events, but we also have parents behind the scenes who are supporting in other ways. I know that you are motivating your son or daughter and encouraging them to have fun, practice and do their best! Our Strings and Chorus concerts really displayed such vigor and motivation over the last two weeks! I hope you might make plans to catch our last musical performance of the year on June 7th as our band will be performing in our café at 7pm.

Just a reminder that schools will be closed on Monday, May 28th for Memorial Day.  Enjoy this 3-day weekend with family and friends.  Wherever you are, be safe and be happy!

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further support your child's learning and experience at Oak Hill.  My door is always open!

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

5th Grade TDAP Reminder

If you have already provided Oak Hill ES with proof of your child receiving the Tdap immunization, thank you.  We have 90 more students that need to submit their Tdap information by June 8, 2018.  Sixth grade students will not be allowed to begin school on August 28, 2018 without submitting proper documentation.

TDAP REQUIREMENT FOR 5TH GRADE STUDENTS:  Virginia Law requires that all students entering sixth grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of 11, although it can be given as early as seven years of age.

In order for your child to begin 6th grade you will need to submit one of the following documents before the first day of school.  It is recommended that all paperwork is submitted to the school office by June 8, 2018.

Acceptable documentation can be one of the following:

  1. A copy of your child’s immunization record showing the Tdap vaccine.

  1. A note on a healthcare provider’s letterhead stating the date the Tdap vaccine was given.

  1. A healthcare provider’s written statement of a permanent or temporary medical exemption.

  1. A notarized Religious Exemption Form which is available online at: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/support/health_medical/certificate_religious_exemption.pdf

The Tdap booster is available from your child’s healthcare provider or The Fairfax County Health Department. The Health Department Clinic Locations and hours are available online at: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/hd/hdclinicsite.htm, or by calling 703-246-2411. Please note that students receiving immunizations at the Health Department must be accompanied by an adult, and should bring their immunization records with them.

For questions regarding immunization documentation, please contact Vicki Baron, the school student information assistant, 703-467-3500.

Lost and Found

We have an abundance of jackets that are left at school each day.  Please have your son or daughter check to ensure they claim their missing items.  Any items not picked up by Friday, May 18th will be donated to charity.

Former Oak Hill students getting ready to talk about college on WOAK.

Counselor News

In addition to celebrating College Day, we have been conducting guidance lessons designed to help students understand what career options are available to them based on their strengths and interest levels. Children like to imagine what life will be like as an adult and often times think of themselves in glamorous or exciting careers, such as professional athletes or rock stars. By exploring and investigating a variety of careers, you can help your child understand there are lots of interesting and rewarding careers to choose from. Check out this website to learn more about careers: www.vacareerview.org.

Oak Hill appreciates our wonderful staff.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank yous are in order to my fabulous staff at Oak Hill!  As you know, our teachers, specialists, instructional assistants, itinerants, assistant principal, custodians, food workers and office staff work hard every day to support the students at Oak Hill.  Their day doesn’t end at dismissal.  They are taking professional development classes to learn new instructional strategies, they are meeting in collaborative learning teams to plan instruction or discussing students who are needing more opportunities to learn standards.  Many are firing up their computers at home to assess student work in Google Classroom or to work virtually with teachers across the county and the state to work on lessons together.  But don’t forget that each evening the mom and dad hats have to go on as well! 

So, I ask that you pause for a moment and let someone at Oak Hill know what it is that you have recognized and appreciated this school year.  One thank you goes a long way!  And finally thank you to our wonderful PTA and all the parents who donated items or sent a monetary donation to be used this week.  The Oak Hill teachers and I are so appreciative for the thoughtfulness shown this week.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further support your child’s learning and experience at Oak Hill.  My door is always open!

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

SOL Schedule 2018 (Grades 3-6)

As you know we will begin SOL testing next week.  Please help your child to perform their best by ensuring they get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy breakfast.  

During testing, students will not be permitted to have access to any device (other than their testing laptop) that has internet access.  Please consider keeping phones, watches, readers, or any other internet capable device at home on your child’s testing day.  Any devices that students bring to class will be collected by the teachers for the duration of the test.

Please click here to view the complete SOL Testing schedule.

Children's Mental Health Matters

Lost and Found

We have an abundance of jackets that are left at school each day.  Please have your son or daughter check to ensure they claim their missing items.  Any items not picked up by Friday, May 18th will be donated to charity.

Literacy News

It is testing season in Reading this month!  In grades 3-6 students have been learning about testing as a genre.  This means students have been learning about how reading passages and answering questions is a different type of reading then they are used to. In grades K-2, students are preparing to be assessed using the DRA2 (Developmental Reading Assessment) which assesses students’ oral reading fluency as well as how they use different reading strategies.  All of this information helps our teachers to inform their instruction while working with your children.  It is also a nice way to see how much they have learned and how much they’ve grown this year.

Mrs. DeVore and Mr. Credle with Mrs. Muerlin and PTA President Hari Kalahasti as part of Staff Appreciation Week. (The theme of the week is giving teachers and staff the "royal treatment").
