Principal's Message

Dear Families,

My Thanksgiving message will be a bit different this year. I am not on my way to Pennsylvania to spend the holiday with my family in the barn. Looking back, I have only missed one Thanksgiving in 49 years. I will miss the hot cider, the fire, my mom’s stuffing and moist turkey, creamed corn and the conversations and memories of past Thanksgivings that we always share. But in order to keep us all at the table next year, we will pause. I know that some families will be missing a seat at the table forever and I am extremely fortunate that my family is not in that category. Instead, we came up with an idea that we would do a Family Zoom call at a predetermined time and we could all enjoy our pie or dessert together. And, at my age….it is time I learn how to cook a turkey and make a homemade pie (and crust) so that I can keep traditions like this alive for years to come! It won’t be the same, but it will work. I hope you find a new tradition this holiday or can take an old one, add some creativity and make it seem pretty awesome after all!

Sincerely,

Holly DeVore, Principal

Return to School Town Hall Tonight

Superintendent Scott S. Brabrand will be holding another Return to School Town Hall tonight from 6-7 p.m. The Town Hall will be available on FCPS cable channel 99 (Verizon channel 11) or on the FCPS website.

Oak Hill Equity Audit and Goal

As mentioned in an earlier Wolf News, Oak Hill staff members and parents completed our School Wide Equity Audit.  The Equity Audit tool is used to reflect on equity and culturally responsive practices at our school.  We used the information from our audit to write an Equity Goal.  Our goal for 2020-2021 school year is "Oak Hill staff will be intentional with their planning and teaching to expose students to multiple perspectives, celebrations, and global accomplishments from a variety of different cultures."  We are excited about working on this goal and would like to thank everyone who had a voice in creating this goal.

Updated Parent Information for Grades 1 & 2

Due to the FCPS' decision to delay grades 1 & 2 return, there will be no more asynchronous dates until a new Return to School date has been established.  Teachers will continue to see students for Morning Meeting and small group work on Mondays. 

As a result of this we have cancelled the Grades 1 & 2 Parent Meeting   scheduled for Thursday, December 3.  We will let you know when we reschedule this meeting.

Clinical Team Tip of the Week Heartbeat Exercise

Oak Hill students have been continuing their learning about the relationships between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors during Social Emotional Learning (SEL) small group time.  Another activity that you could try at home is the heartbeat exercise, outlined in “5 Fun Mindfulness Activities for Children” by Alexandra Eidens.  

The heartbeat exercise is a wonderful grounding activity because it allows your child to focus on the sensations in the body.  This exercise is a helpful activity to do if your child is feeling stressed or anxious.  For example, if your child is working on a project for school and is getting frustrated or feeling stuck, you can gently redirect them by asking them to STOP what they are doing and take a break.

Ask your child to stand up and either jump up and down or do jumping jacks for one minute.  At the end of that minute, have them place their hand on their heart and pay attention to how their heartbeat and their breathing feels.

Tuning into the physical body is a wonderful way to redirect the focus.  With this new burst of energy, your child will feel a new motivation to complete the previous task.

Kindergarten Return to School Update

GovDelivery 1 week 4 days ago

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

Dear Families,

Superintendent Brabrand announced yesterday "that the current health metrics for COVID-19 cases in our community now exceed the threshold to expand our in-person learning. Therefore, we are pressing 'pause' and will delay expanding in-person instruction to Group 5, which includes Early Head Start, pre-K, kindergarten and select students who receive special education services, who were scheduled to return Tuesday, November 17.  We are monitoring health metrics daily, but Group 5 will remain virtual until at least November 30. We will communicate additional updates closer to that time."

Currently, our doors are open to our preschool classes and selected students who receive ESOL services. We will continue to keep you updated with our plans to bring back our Kindergarteners to Oak Hill! We will also pause on sending out class information to our Group 6 parents (1st and 2nd grades and selected SPED students) until we know more about your return. Our Town Hall for Group 6 has also been postponed.

Hoping you and your loved ones are healthy and safe,

Holly DeVore, Principal

New to FCPS Student Speech, Voice, and Language Screenings: Kindergarten through 3rd Grade

Per Virginia Child Find Regulations (8 VAC 20-81-50), students newly enrolled in Fairfax County Public Schools in kindergarten through 3rd grade must be screened in the areas of speech, voice, and language to determine if a referral for an evaluation for special education and related services is indicated. Screenings will be coordinated at each school by the assigned speech-language pathologist(s). Screenings may take place in-person or virtually. 

Screenings for new to FCPS students in kindergarten through 2nd grade who are currently enrolled will be initiated the week of December 1, 2020.  Screenings for new to FCPS students in 3rd grade who currently enrolled will be initiated the week of January 4, 2021.  Students who enroll after their grade level returns to in-person instruction will be screened within 60 business days of enrollment. 

School Board Votes to Make Changes to 2020-21 Calendar

The Fairfax County School Board has voted to make Inauguration Day—Wednesday, January 20, 2021—a holiday for Fairfax County Public Schools students and employees, and Juneteenth—June 19, 2021—a holiday for employees that will be observed on Friday, June 18, 2021.

On the 2020-21 school year calendar, January 20, 2021, had been listed as an instructional day for students and regular workday for all employees.

Previously, during every fourth year, Inauguration Day was designated as a holiday for students and employees. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors recently authorized its 2021 holiday schedule, which includes Inauguration Day as a holiday for Fairfax County employees. 

In an effort to further create an inclusive environment, Juneteenth was included as a holiday in 2020; it was recently included by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors as a holiday for county employees. Virginia has also passed legislation to observe Juneteenth as an official holiday for state employees.

See the complete 2020-21 school year calendar.

Clinical Team Tip of the Week

Oak Hill students have been learning about three parts of the brain including the prefrontal cortex, the amygdala, and the hippocampus during Social Emotional Learning (SEL) small group time.  As children become more familiar with the brain, they begin to understand how their feelings arise and that they have the ability to change what they do in response.  Breathing is an important tool that can be used to calm and refocus our brains before reacting to challenging feelings.  A glitter jar that is shaken swirls all around and is a powerful visual that illustrates a brain that is stressed.  As we breathe, the glitter starts to settle as our thoughts and feelings start to settle.  Visit the Oak Hill Guidance Site to learn how to make a glitter jar at home and to practice breathing.  Remember your child must be logged into their fcpsschools.net account.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the Oak Hill clinical team if you have any questions or would like to learn more about different coping strategies including breathing.  We are here to support all Oak Hill students and families.

Clinical Team Tip of the Week Meaningful Feedback

It is so important to provide kids with meaningful and specific feedback when they are doing something well.  For example, feedback like “Great job!” doesn’t tell your child what she did right. Instead, researchers suggest that taking the time to provide children with information on what exactly they did well can help boost self-esteem and promote a growth mindset. Has your child’s performance, effort, or focus improved since the first day of distance learning? Be sure to let her know about it, even if she still has a long way to go.

We are here to support all Oak Hill students and families.  Please reach out to a member of the clinical team if you have any questions. 

Kim Gallagher, School Counselor at  kagallagher1@fcps.edu
Cammy McCleskey, School Social Worker at clmccleskey@fcps.edu 
Ginny Phinney, School Psychologist at vgphinney@fcps.edu
Christy Ryder, School Counselor at clryder@fcps.edu 

Math Tip of the Week

As we head into a season full of Holidays and Celebrations, one thing you might consider to do as a family is baking.  Baking and cooking together can be tied to math.  When baking, there is great opportunity to talk about fractions, measurement, doubling a recipe, and even fair share with the cookies baked.  This is a fun activity to do together and tie in learning and good conversation.  Here is a sample recipe with some questions you might consider.

Clinical Team Tip of the Week Communication Blocks and How to Avoid Them

Have you ever tried to help your upset child feel better, only to have them say “you don’t get it,” or “you’re not listening to me”?

Very often well-meaning, loving parents want so much to help their children when they are upset, and the first impulse may be to try to help by placating the child, trying to distract the child from their sad thoughts, or quickly giving advice about how the child may resolve their problem and feel better.  However, children often long for their parent to understand how they feel, and they actually may be able to help themselves if they have a parent who provides a listening ear, a caring attitude, and an empathetic response.   So, what is the best way for a parent to respond?  

First, listen with full attention, maintaining good eye contact and responding with words like “Oh,” and “I see” as the story unfolds.    These responses, coupled with a caring attitude, are invitations to a child to explore their own thoughts and feelings, which could possibly help them to come up with their own ideas for solutions.  

Second, listen for their feelings and acknowledge and label those feelings by making statements such as “It sounds like you’re feeling______________.  Is that right?”  Hearing the words for what they are experiencing can be deeply comforting, and they will be encouraged to share more of their thoughts and feelings with you as they realize that you are trying hard to hear them and “get” what they are feeling. This will result in more open communication and opportunities to discuss possible solutions to this and other problems in the future, which can be very helpful to children AND parents for years to come. 

ESOL Tip of the Week

How can you help your child succeed in school and in life? 

Read more in supporting your student in becoming a Portrait of a Graduate!  

Portrait of a Graduate emphasizes the development of skills that will allow students to be productive citizens of a global community and to also be successful in the workforce of the future. Teachers give opportunities for students to illustrate their learning in authentic ways.  Students are applying Global and Ethical Citizen language throughout the day. For example, if you want to _____, what’s a goal that you might make? What could be your plan to meet the goal?

At home, instead of asking “What did you do in school today?”, consider asking one of these questions: 

How were you an ethical and global citizen today? 

How were you a good friend to ____ when ____? 

How did you try to understand how _______ was feeling? 

How were you kind to others? What good choices did you make?

What skills does a student need to become a successful Portrait of a Graduate?
