Assistant Principal's Message

Ms. KJ An, Oak Hill's new Assistant Principal

My name is Kyungjoo (KJ) An and it is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Assistant Principal of Oak Hill  Elementary School.  

I began my journey as an educator in FCPS in 2001 as a Kindergarten teacher at Forest Edge Elementary School. Then in 2006, I had the opportunity to be a charter member of Eagle View Elementary School.  I worked as a classroom teacher teaching students in grades K-3 at Eagle View Elementary School from 2006 to 2016.  During my time as a classroom teacher at Eagle View Elementary School, I obtained and successfully renewed my National Board Professional Teaching Certification as an early childhood generalist.  Most recently, I served as an assistant principal at Fairfax Villa Elementary School from 2016-2021. 

I am honored to serve as the next assistant principal of Oak Hill ES! It is a privilege to be a member of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build relationships that promote academic and social growth.

Ridership Survey  

On July 29, 2021, the Office of Transportation Services (OTS) will conduct a student ridership survey for all eligible riders. It is important that parents respond to the survey by August 4, 2021 and submit a separate survey for each of their children enrolled in FCPS. If the survey is not completed and returned, the student will not be added to a bus route at the beginning of the school year.

During the school year, changes to the intent form can be made with your school's SIS operator if the need for transportation changes or the survey is not returned by August 4, 2021. It may take up to five days to update transportation schedules.

This is a reminder that all students, drivers, and attendants must wear face coverings when boarding or riding on a school bus. Parents/guardians should review their Parent Vue account for updated bus route assignment information after August 10, 2021.  If you have any questions, please contact Oak Hill at 703-467-3500.

Updated Mask Guidance for Students and Families

As we close out the 2020-21 school year and quickly approach the start of summer learning, we have updated guidance regarding the use of face masks while on school property beginning June 18 in accordance with Executive Order 79. This guidance impacts our staff and students attending summer enrichment programs, extended learning, as well as camps or other school-based activities. 

Indoors On-School Property

Executive Order 79 requires that all individuals wear a mask while indoors on school property. We are asking that masks or face coverings be worn by all students, faculty, staff, and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

This includes all activities on school property beyond education, including School Board meetings and concerts, graduations, voting, attendees at performances, etc. Social distancing is not required.

Outdoors On-School Property

Executive Order 79 permits individuals outdoors on school property to remove masks in accordance with CDC guidance.

Fully vaccinated students, teachers, staff, and visitors may remove their masks or face coverings. Six feet social distancing is not required.

Individuals who are not fully vaccinated may remove masks or face coverings outside if they can maintain at least six feet distance. If the individual cannot maintain six feet social distancing, it is recommended they wear a mask. 

Note: Mask exemptions as outlined in Executive Order 79 continue to be applicable (e.g. while eating or drinking) and are consistent with exemptions implemented during the 2020-21 school year.

Technology Help Desk Remains Open This Summer

The Parent Technology Help Desk will continue to support parents and students over the summer months. Help Desk agents can be reached at 833 921-3277 (833-921-FCPS) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Outside of those hours, parents can also visit the Parent and Student IT Support Portal to find self-help resources or submit a tech support request ticket.

Summer Access to Digital Resources

Great news!  All current students will continue to have access to many of the digital resources they have utilized this school year.  ST Math, Imagine Learning, and Pioneer Valley will remain available to students. Students can use their FCPS login information to access learning apps throughout the summer.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

We can’t believe that this will be our final News You Choose of the 20-21 school year!  I’m sorry that we are not all reflecting on the musical concerts, end of the year picnics, class plays and the Talent Show.  Mr. Credle and I would like to reflect on how our students tackled new learning by logging in to virtual teaching daily or how they transitioned back to in person learning.  We are reflecting on how students made connections to their teachers and classmates, how they learned to persevere when studying distantly became very tough.   We had the pleasure of logging into classrooms as well and saw our staff work to new lengths to make sure their virtual platforms were accessible to all and how in person classrooms followed all mitigation strategies to keep everyone safe.  And none of this would have happened without YOUR support!

I have never felt more of a sense of pride for leading this school community and want to thank you for being so responsive at a time that was so unsettling for us all.  I heard from so many of you who shared suggestions, kudos and shared stories that mirrored my own personal life. Thank you for your questions and please continue to reach out to me over the summer and let me know what we can do better as we begin to think about the 2020-21 school year.  FIVE days of in person instruction next year and we couldn’t be happier for that!

I wish you one amazing summer of freedom!  Freedom to move about the country, freedom to see friends and family and freedom from the worry that consumed us all over the last year and a half! 

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

Our PTA Board meets regularly during the school year. Three board positions are open as many of them are at the end of their term, so it’s a great chance to start up with a partner for support. We encourage everyone to consider participating; it’s a supportive, fun and flexible group, and we are grateful to those who choose to volunteer their time!

PTA BOARD ROLES

The PTA positions are ONE-year roles, with a chance to be re-elected for another term. The amount of work varies depending on the position, the time of year, and the role-sharing situation. Our open positions for the 2021-2022 school year are as follows:

  • Secretary: Collects information for meeting agendas, prior to the meeting, and distributes agendas for each board meeting. Takes minutes and records business transacted at each meeting (board and general meetings). Keeps an accurate, concise, permanent record of proceedings at all PTA board and general meetings.
  • Click here for details. 
  • Treasurer: Collects money for PTA functions, dispenses money for PTA expenses, maintains all accounts and records, provides monthly reports and projections at PTA meetings and files all tax forms. Serves as chair of the budget/finance committee and presents the budget to the membership.

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

What a great evening it was last night at the Chantilly High School graduation celebrating with former Oak Hill students and the entire Chantilly Pyramid Principal group!  It was a night under the stars at Jiffy Lube Live and an evening filled with wonder, optimism, and dreams!  A great reminder to those of us who graduated many, many moons ago that dreams do not have an expiration date.  It is never too late to be inspired or motivated to just try, to take that risk regardless of the outcome.  The journey, at times, is far more valuable and memorable than the final outcome. 

For those of you who are sending a former Oakie out into the world, know that each of our students are well equipped to handle any adversities life may throw at them.  You have been instrumental in developing their character and instilling the motivation to move mountains and dream big.  On behalf of the entire Oak Hill Staff, congratulations to you and your graduate, our former Oakie.  We wish you the best!

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

Sixth Grade Celebrations

We are excited to celebrate our sixth graders as they prepare to move up to middle school.  On Monday, June 7th, all sixth graders (virtual and in-person) are invited to participate in an outdoor party on the Oak Hill fields from 1-2:30 pm.   Mrs. DeVore, Mr. Credle and the sixth grade team are planning this party with parent volunteers.  We will also be offering a virtual celebration for those students not attending the in-person party. 

Please RSVP here to let us know if your child will attend the in-person or the virtual party.

Details were sent out last Friday to 6th grade families by our parent volunteers Angie Frey, Taruna Agarwal, and Melissa Dolenc.  Thank you to the many parents who have volunteered to assist the planning committee!   Unfortunately, there will not be a rain date for the outdoor party but all students can pivot to a virtual party during the last week of school.

On Tuesday, June 8th, we will hold a Virtual Moving Up ceremony and car parade.  The moving up ceremony will begin at 10:30 am with all sixth graders and their families.  It will conclude by parents clicking on individual links to their child’s homeroom presentation.  Links will be sent to families closer to the event.

We will hold our first ever car parade for our newly promoted students through the Oak Hill neighborhood along Kinross Circle at 2pm.  Families are encouraged to participate in the car parade with their sixth grade child.  While on the parade route, all vehicles must obey all traffic signs, and all passengers must be seated and buckled.

Car Parade Information

We would like to invite all K-5 Oak Hill students and families to line the parade route and cheer for our 6th graders on June 8th at 2pm. For the best view of the students, please line up and cheer on the right side of Kinross Circle.  The parade will travel around Kinross Circle.  The cars will be entering the circle at corner of Kinross Circle and Centreville Road (where there is a stoplight) or the corner of Kinross Circle and Allness Lane.  They will continue past Oak Hill and proceed to the second intersection of Kinross Circle and Centreville Road.  You are encouraged to make signs with words of congratulations or other decorations, and wear your Oak Hill spirit wear or blue and white colors. We hope to see you there!   

Calendar Reminder: June 8 All Students to Be Virtual on June 8 Due to Democratic Primary Election

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Mr. Credle and I want to wish you a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and hope the sunshine and slower pace will be just what we all need!  We have some busy events coming up at Oak Hill, so I encourage you to read through our 6th grade promotion festivities and yearbook distribution plans.  Information about our laptop collection will be sent home tomorrow.   I am so proud of our students and how they have been participating both virtually and in person!  I do believe that the laughter and smiles are surrounding us again and I thank you for encouraging them to log on or show up and try their best.  We know it doesn’t “just happen” without your support!

I hope you are finding ways to take care of your own self.  As parents, we are sometimes the last to acknowledge when we are on empty and need to take a break.  I hope this weekend brings you a few moments to do just that and spend time with those whom you have missed. 

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

FCPS to Require Masks for the Remainder of the School Year

For the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, FCPS will be requiring students and staff to continue to wear masks and socially distance during instructional time inside school buildings. Students will be required to wear masks at recess but will not be socially distanced. FCPS will maintain CDC requirements of 3 feet social distance in classrooms and 6 feet social distancing in our cafeterias through June 15. Both these requirements are aligned with the Fairfax County Health Department guidance and helps maintain consistency as we finish out the year.

As per national, state, and local guidance, there are unique and specific mask and social distancing requirements for graduation, athletics, school performances, and other school-specific events held indoors and outdoors.

Domino's Fundraiser

A big shout out to everyone in our Oak Hill Community who helped make this month’s Dominos Fundraiser a huge success!  We made a whopping $559. 71 with 99 orders along with an additional $600 earned from our Dominos Fundraiser in February!  This money directly supports our students and staff and your contribution is very much appreciated!  Go Oak Hill!

ESOL Tip of the Week Justify

This month we will focus on using the language function Justify.  Can you share your thinking in a small group or with a family member?  Use the following three steps:  explaining, giving evidence, and proving and defending an idea. Give your child a choice between two items.  Have your child choose what is the best choice.  When justifying it, students should be explaining why they chose that item.  Students should remember to use phrases like “I would rather…, because….. If,...then.”    

Help clarify point of view.   “From my point of view___because ___.”  And “I think ___ because ___.”  Give evidence and be ready to explain your decision.  Decide together which side has the stronger side. Use language to give reasons for an action, decision, point of view, or way of thinking. Enjoy listing the pros and cons of a topic such as having a pet or playing sports or eating vegetables versus candy.  Give several reasons to support your ideas.  After hearing your partner, you may change your mind.  

To learn more about how having meaningful language experiences support literacy and foster reading and writing success, please refer to an article from Scholastic found here.
