Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Mr. Credle and I attended the Fairfax County School Board Meeting last week to accept the Virginia Index of Performance Award for advanced learning and achievement.  The Virginia Board of Education awards this honor to schools in the state who exceed state and federal accountability standards and achieve excellence goals established by the governor and the board.  We want to thank our staff and parents for supporting excellence at Oak Hill and for the strong advocacy for differentiation for all students.  We could not be more proud of our students’ success!

We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow night for Baskin Robbins Scoop Night!  All proceeds will go towards the Oak Hill technology and staff development funds.  This is a great evening to socialize with the Oak Hill community!

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

Universal Screener

GovDelivery 2 days 15 hours ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Universal Screener

Dear Parents and Guardians: 

The Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) School Board adopted a universal screener assessment for use with all elementary school students in kindergarten through grade 6. The universal screener assessment includes a reading test and a mathematics test. Students in kindergarten will receive screening for reading only. Students in grades 1-6 will receive screening for both mathematics and reading. The purpose of this assessment is to identify students who may have gaps in foundational literacy and mathematics skills. Based on universal screener results, some students may require an additional assessment to further diagnose the specific learning areas that may need support. The universal screener reading test, together with any necessary follow-up diagnostic assessments, also fulfills state testing expectations for primary students. The universal screener and any necessary follow-up assessments will be given at the beginning of the school year. Depending on grade level and previous screener performance, students may receive screening again in the winter and/or in the spring.  For the expected dates when your child will test, please contact your child’s teacher. Additional information, including a short video, about the universal screener in FCPS can be found here.  If you have further questions about this assessment, please contact your child’s teacher or assistant principal Cliff Credle at cmcredle@fcps.edu.

Oak Hill Library Parent Volunteer Opportunity

If you are interested in helping in your child’s library, we have the following options for you to choose from:

  • Shelving and shelf maintenance:  Come on your own schedule during the school day and help with shelving books and making sure our shelves are in order.  This makes it easier for our kids to access the books they want!
  • Check out books to students:  Help is needed Monday-Friday from 2:15-3:15.   If that time works for you, pick a day and come every week on that day.  You will scan books on student library accounts as they come to the circulation desk with their book choices.
  • Library Inventory: This will take place in early 2019.  Every book will need the barcode scanned.  I anticipate this to be a two-week process, depending on the number of volunteers we have in the pool.
  • Book Fair:  This will take place Oct. 22-26.  Volunteers will be needed during that week and the week before. You may hang signs, help set-up, assist with point of sale, or help pack up the fair at the end.

If you are interested in getting involved in the library, we would love to have your help in these areas.  Training will be provided!

Community Meeting to Introduce the Community Center Project

A community meeting has been set for October 1, 2018, beginning at 7 PM, at the Sully Governmental Center (4900 Stonecroft Boulevard, Chantilly, VA 20151) to discuss the construction of the new Sully Community Center.

Fairfax County is proposing to build the new Sully Community Center on a 5-acre site at the intersection of Wall Road and the Air and Space Museum Parkway in Chantilly – near Highlands Park. The roughly 30,000 square-foot facility will serve as a multi-generational facility for the surrounding communities and will be the new and permanent location of the Sully Senior Center (currently operating in leased space in Chantilly). The center will be home to a broad array of services, programs, and activities for individuals of all ages and abilities.

The project is currently in the initial stages of design and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

Counselor News

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Oak Hill Elementary School!  We are very excited about working with all of the Oak Hill students!  Kimberly Gallagher will primarily be supporting students in kindergarten, first, second, and third grade.  Christy Ryder will be supporting students in third, fifth, and sixth grade. 

Meet the counselors…

Kimberly grew up in a military family that moved around a lot!  She has lived in Germany, Arizona, Hawaii, Nevada (Las Vegas), Georgia, and Virginia.  She received her undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and her graduate degree from Valdosta State University in Georgia.  Kimberly and her husband stay very busy keeping up with their two young boys and puppy. She enjoys going to Bethany Beach, watching college football, and working with your kids! 

Christy grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, and is a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. She received her teaching degree from James Madison University and her school counseling degree from Virginia Tech.  Christy and her husband are proud parents of two elementary age children who keep them busy with all of their activities.  If/when Christy has a free moment, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and playing volleyball in her neighborhood league. She is looking forward to another exciting year at Oak Hill!

We are looking forward to a great year!  Please visit the Oak Hill website to access the Chantilly Pyramid’s Mental Health Resource page and for more information about our student services team including our school psychologist and school social worker.  We will be sharing more about the role of counselors later this week.

Bus Delay Notification System

Stay up-to-date on school bus arrivals with FCPS' bus delay notification system. This system provides parents with timely notification of late bus route information. Access it directly online. Morning bus route information will be available until noon. The afternoon bus route information will be available from 1 to 5:30 p.m.  

E-Notify (BlackboardConnect) email messages will also be sent to announce bus delays.

Need assistance or have questions? Visit the FCPS Transportation page for more information. 

Absences Add Up: Attendance Matters!

As the school year begins, we want you to how FCPS follows up on student attendance. Regular attendance and active academic engagement yield the best student outcomes. In Virginia, public school students, aged five to eighteen, are expected to attend school daily, unless their absence is excused due to illness, a death in the family, a medical or dental appointment, or religious obligations.

We reach out to parents when:

  • Students don’t arrive at school as scheduled. We must hear from parents within 48 hours of an absence, and will try to reach parents to find out the reason why the child did not report.
  • Students are chronically absent (miss 10% of the school year, for any reason).
  • Students have five or more unexcused days, because this is a truancy matter.

Parents assist educators by:

  • Continuing to communicate with schools when your child will be absent.
  • Planning non-school related trips, such as those scheduled to visit relatives, or family vacations, when schools are not in session. Doing so helps children avoid lost learning opportunities.
  • Monitoring your child’s attendance.
  • Seeking resources, including school support, if your child is experiencing difficulty in school.

Literacy News

We are so excited to be back in school and all of our classes have already been hard at work with building a reading and writing community within their classrooms.  This first unit for all of our grade levels in reading is about setting up routines and procedures to run a successful reading workshop.  Students will learn how to choose books for independent practice, they will be learning how to read around the room, and, most importantly, how to talk about their reading with peers and their teacher.  At home, you can follow up with this by asking your child what they have been reading and ask them specifically about the characters in their books.  Support them in making connections and developing theories about the characters in the books they read.

On Wednesday, September 19th, students will be released 3 hours early, at 12:30 p.m. There will be four additional 3-hour early dismissal days this school year. These days are planned to provide time for staff development.

What a great first week of school it has been!  I am so proud of our returning students as they immediately transitioned into new classroom procedures and routines and oriented our new students to Oak Hill!  Staff was excited to greet their new students and get to know them a little more during morning meetings.  Mr. Credle and I have enjoyed visiting classrooms and introducing ourselves to all of our new students.  We look forward to seeing all of you over the next two evenings at our Back to School Nights!  Please refer to the schedule posted in this email.  You may report directly to your child’s classroom and specialists will be available in the lobby if you have specific questions about the discipline they teach.  Thank you for understanding that teacher presentations are only for adults.  Our BTSN presentations are the only evenings that we ask children not to accompany you to Oak Hill.

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

Volunteer Guidelines

Volunteers for both school sponsored and PTA sponsored activities are welcome and needed at Oak Hill.  There are both at school and at home opportunities to volunteer with various time commitments.  We would love to have you join us! Volunteer guidelines will be discussed at Back-to-School Night.  Below are the highlights.

  • A volunteer does not discuss confidential information.  Confidential information includes, but is not limited to:  scholastic and health records, test scores and grade, discipline problems within a classroom or during an activity, and character traits of an individual child.  A volunteer does not discuss such matters with friends, neighbors or other volunteers.
  • A volunteer supports the staff by following school-wide or classroom regulations regarding student behavior.
  • A volunteer must be dependable and consistent in order to provide the maximum benefit of such assistance.  Phone the school well in advance to inform the staff member when you will not be able to assist at the assigned time.  Phone the PTA committee chair well in advance when you will be unable to help with an assigned PTA function.

First week going well at Oak Hill!

Technology News

This week teachers have begun distributing laptops to students.  They will be helping students to create and reset last year’s password, begin ongoing discussions about digital citizenship and appropriate use and get their online core tool accounts set up.

Oak Hill Elementary will continue its work into Year 3 of FCPSOn, a digital transformation of teaching and learning in the Chantilly Pyramid. This initiative has enabled our students to have equitable access to technology and our teachers to creatively incorporate the Portrait of a Graduate skills into everyday work.

Students in grades three through six are expected to take their device home nightly to complete necessary schoolwork, charge the device for the next day, and bring it back the following school day. Just like in previous years, they will be given a carrying case to transport the device safely. Students will not be able to take their devices home until the SR&R form has been returned to the school. The SR&R includes an acceptable use policy for student network access.

Please review the FCPSOn Checkout Program Acceptance document below.

Also, please review the Student Device Guidelines found here.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the school at 703-467-3500. Additionally, our School Based Technology Specialist, Tammy Ofano, will be available to answer questions during Back-to-School Night on August 29th and 30th.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

It was a pleasure to reconnect with all of you at our Open House today!  We look forward to seeing you again for our Back to School Nights this week.  Just a reminder that school will open tomorrow at 8:20 am for students.  We do allow our younger parents to walk their child(ren) to class the first day.  On the second day of school, as hard as it might be we ask you to say your goodbyes outside of the school building.  We have such a large school and it can become overwhelming for students when our lobby is full of adults. 

Our first grade students will sit in the pod area and wait to be dismissed by staff and student patrols.  Students in grades 2-6 will report to the gym and wait to be dismissed at 8:35am.  Patrols will assist with escorting these students to their respective locations.  If your child is a bus rider, please access the bus on the first day.  If your child walks, please start this practice on day 1.  What a great way for your child to get in some early exercise and walk with friends! 

Mr. Credle, the staff and I look forward to spending the days with your children.  We will take good care of each and every one until your paths meet again at 3:30pm!  Again, we ask you to please wait outside of the school building when meeting your child at the end of the day. 

Have a good evening and we will see you soon at Back to School Night!  We are #ALLINOHES for a wonder school year!

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to those families returning to OHES and a huge welcome to those of you who are new to our school community!  By looking at our student enrollment growth since June, I know we have many new families and we look forward to getting to know your child(ren) and YOU!  Please introduce yourself to Mr. Credle, Assistant Principal, and me at our Open House on Monday, August 27!  As we think about our first day of school on Tuesday, August 28, a friendly reminder that families are allowed to walk their child to class the first day of school.  Beginning Wednesday, it’s Kiss and Go outside the entrances to Oak Hill.  We promise you that your child(ren) will be well taken care of and supervised every step of the way.  We’ve got this so please don’t worry. 

Mr. Credle, Mrs. Rock, Mrs. Young and I had a wonderful time meeting our rising Kindergarten students last week and sharing a popsicle on the playground.  I hope you have followed us on Twitter @oakhilles, @principaldevore and @cliffcredle and #ALLinOHES.  Take a look at the excitement from staff this week!  Mr. Credle and I would like to take a minute to recognize our wonderful teachers and staff for everything they have done to prepare for the 2018-19 opening!  Our custodians worked very hard cleaning the building and preparing the grounds and our office support is the backbone of registering students, ordering supplies for classrooms, answering questions, preparing first day packets, etc…  The staff is #ALLinOHES and ready to welcome your child. 

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

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.

Sixth graders at their Moving Up Ceremony.

Principals Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our final week of school has been full of joy and celebration here at Oak Hill!  The 6th grade moving up ceremony and celebration went well and grade level parties have been lots of fun for all students, staff, and parents.  Thank you to all the Oak Hill parents and family members who attended these events and have volunteered during the school year.  Your time and effort have been greatly appreciated.

For those who are returning next year, I look forward to seeing you at our Open House in the fall.  An email with the date and time will be sent out soon and the information will be on the Oak Hill website as well..

We hope you enjoy a wonderful summer with your children and make reading and learning an important part of each and every day.  Please remember that Friday is a two-hour early release day and the last day of school!  Dismissal will begin at 1:30 pm.  Final progress reports, Universal Screener, and SOL scores will be sent home with students on Friday. Thank you for a fantastic school year!

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
