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

  • Check out books to students:  Help is needed every Wednesday throughout the day.   If you’re interested in helping in this capacity, please contact me to schedule the time.  You will scan books on student library accounts as they come to the circulation desk with their book choices.
  • Book Fair:  This will take place Oct. 21-25.  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!

The provisions are ordinary and customary and are commonly used by e-commerce vendors. The MySchoolBucks Terms and Conditions specifically state that this is not the only way to make payments to a school. 

The options are to 1) agree to the terms; or 2) provide payments using cash or a check. Additional payment information is available online.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

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 members were 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 had a successful Back to School/Open House format this year and saw almost all of our families!

Here Comes the Bus is a free school bus tracking app that can simplify morning and afternoon routines for parents and students by giving real-time bus location and text or email notification alerts, helping everybody get to the bus stop on time.

Here Comes the Bus® uses FCPS global positioning system (GPS) data and an easy-to-use customizable map that works on one or multiple devices, such as a tablet, smartphone, or desktop computer.

Parents can download the app now for free from the App Store or Google Play. You will need the FCPS school district code 28982 and a Student Information System (SIS) Parent Account (contact your child's school if you do not have an SIS Parent Account). Once signed in, you can customize or edit features, including how the app will communicate with you, and the size and location of the notification radius around your child's bus stop.

Learn more about the Here Comes the Bus mobile app.

Tip Sheet for Elementary Parents

The start of a new school year is exciting. But it usually means kids and parents need to make some adjustments to their schedules.

Plan now to get your family back into an effective school year routine. Here are some ways:

  • Define the basics. Make sure your child knows what you expect when school is in session. Set a specific time to do homework. Set limits on screen time. Set aside some time each day for reading.
  • Create a chart for the first few weeks of school—until your child's routines become habits. Give him a gold star on days when he does everything without being asked.
  • Manage correspondence.The start of the school year means a lot of paper going between home and school. Set up a place where your child can put all the paperwork from school. Sign it and put it back in his book bag to return to school the next day.
  • Keep track of schedules.Post a family calendar where everyone will see it. Then have everyone write down their assignments and activities as they are scheduled. This will help you plan ahead. If your child knows a book report is due the day after a late soccer practice, he or she will see that they need to finish the report early.

Family Life Education Instructional Program Information

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) provides a comprehensive, sequential Family Life Education (FLE) program for students in grades kindergarten through grade twelve. Instruction is seen as a partnership among parents and guardians, the school, and the community in supporting the learning essential to the development of strong families, positive relationships, and a healthy community.

Parents/guardians may choose to opt their child out of all or part of the Family Life Education program. Students who are opted out are provided with age-appropriate, nonpunitive alternative health instruction, and every effort is made to foster respect for family choices. If you wish to opt your child out of all or part of FLE for this school year, opt out forms were included in your child’s back-to-school/orientation packets and are available online for Elementary (K-6) here.   Please fill in the opt-out form and return it to your child’s school prior to Family Life Education instruction.

Detailed grade-level program descriptions are available online at Elementary (K-6) . FLE grade level-specific lessons and media that FCPS has streaming rights for are available for parents online in FCPS 24-7 (Blackboard) Parent View https://fcps.blackboard.com/. Account information is available at your local school or online here.  Grade level-specific lessons are also available at the Fairfax County Regional Library in the City of Fairfax (this location does not have media). Grade level-specific lessons and media that is not streamed online are available for review at your child’s school library. Due to copyright permissions, we are unable to stream all media online.

Program questions may be addressed at your child’s school or by contacting Instructional Services at 571-423-4550 or by contacting Elizabeth Payne, Health and Physical Education Coordinator at etpayne@fcps.edu.

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!  Below are some important volunteer guidelines.

  • 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.

Oak Hill teams completing a fun Scavenger Hunt to kickoff the 2019-2020 school year!

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Welcome to those families returning to OHES and a huge welcome to those of you who are new to our school community!  Please introduce yourself to Mr. Credle, Assistant Principal, and me at our Open House on Friday, August 23!  As we think about our first day of school on Monday, August 26, a friendly reminder that parents are allowed to walk their child to class the first day of school.  Beginning Tuesday, 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. Aharam, 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 and our first ever scavenger hunt!  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 2019-2020 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

School Transportation

Daily Schedule - Oak Hill's doors open at 8:20am each morning.  Students are sent to classrooms at 8:35am so they have time to prepare for the day.  Students are marked tardy at 8:46am and will need to be escorted to the front office with an adult for check in.    

Kiss 'n Ride is monitored by staff members beginning at 8:20am and ending at 8:45am each morning.  Please do not drop off students outside of these times. 

Walkers - If you reside within the walking boundaries, we request your child walk to school on the first day.  Kindergarteners must be escorted to and from school.  Kindergarten parents can meet their walkers at the entrance closest to the playground.  Please wait outside the door for a staff member to reunite you with your child.  All walkers must go straight home before returning to play on Oak Hill grounds. 

Bus Riders - If your child is a bus rider, you received bus information from transportation.  Please have your child access the bus on the first day.  All kindergarteners will have to be met at the bus stop by a parent or guardian for the entire school year.  If students are not met, they will be returned to Oak Hill to await parent pickup. 

Bike riders - Students may ride their bicycle to school with parent permission.  Helmets must be worn and safety traffic regulations must be followed.  Oak Hill has bicycle racks on each side of the school for storage.  Students must provide their own bike locks. The school is not responsible for bicycles while on school property and bicycles must be removed each night.   

Tips for a Successful School Year
  1. Restart Routines. Kids need time to adjust, so provide a head start. Dust off the alarm clock and gradually make bedtime earlier before the first day of school.  Start your child on a school-day routine – waking up, eating, and going to bed at regular times. Explain that everyone in the family needs to adjust to the new schedule, so he or she doesn’t feel alone with these changes.  Ask your child to help plan school lunches for the first week and plan a fun shopping trip to the grocery store.
  2. Go Over Ground Rules. Decide when and where he or she will do homework. Be sure to cover tricky topics: Can she watch TV after she finishes her work? How much screen time is permitted during the school week?  Will there be activities on any school nights?  Establishing guidelines and going over them together will make sure you're on the same page once school is in session.
  3. De-Stress Dressing.  Ask your child to help choose the outfits for the first week of school. Let your child wear his or her favorite outfit on the first day of school.  Together with your child, pack up his or her backpack the night before, including a snack.  For younger children who are nervous about separating, suggest taking a special object to school that reminds him of home. A reassuring note in a child’s lunch can also help ease separation anxiety.
  4. Help Manage Worries.  Anxious feelings are normal and expected during times of transition or change.   When your child expresses anxiety about going back to school -- a new teacher, increases in homework, who to sit with at lunch -- do listen seriously.  Tell your child that it is normal to have concerns.  Rather than dismissing these fears (“Nothing to worry about! You’ll be fine!) listening to them and acknowledging your child’s feelings will help him feel more secure.  Encourage your child to think of ways to solve his or her problem. For example, “If (the worst) happens, what could you do?” or “Let’s think of some ways you could handle that situation.” This gives you the opportunity to coach your child on how to cope with (and interpret) both real and imagined scary situations. You will also be giving your child the tools he or she needs to cope with an unexpected situation that might arise.  Before and during the first few weeks of school, set up a regular time and place to talk. Some children feel most comfortable in a private space with your undivided attention (such as right before bed, or during mealtime). Teens often welcome some sort of distraction to cut the intensity of their worries and feelings (such as driving in the car or taking a walk).
  5. Go For a Test Run.  If possible, attend open house on Friday so that your child can meet his or her teacher and get familiar with the new classroom.  Make sure to find the cafeteria, gym, and library. If your child needs extra support to make a successful transition, don’t hesitate to reach out to the classroom teacher and one of the school counselors (Kimberly Gallagher or Christy Ryder).

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/picnics 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 combined Open House/Back to School Night in August.  Please see below for specific grade level information.

Second graders with their persuasive letters. 

Second Grade PBL

Second grade students questioned, “How can we, as environmental activists, write persuasive letters to convince the local community to protect the Monarchs and milkweed?”  Students learned about a monarchs life cycle and the importance of milkweed.  Teachers and students voted for the top two letters from each class based on how well they persuaded us.  A few ideas include: Monarchs don’t hurt us so we shouldn’t hurt them.  Caterpillars need the milkweed to lay eggs on and feed…a lot!  Without milkweed the monarchs will become extinct.  We hope that the next time you see a Monarch flying, you will think about protecting them too.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The school year is winding to a close and we couldn’t be prouder of our students’ accomplishments.  Mr. Credle and I have been amazed at our students’ performances in Band, Strings, Chorus, the Recorder Showcase, class plays and our upcoming Talent Show! Other students are demonstrating learning through performance-based assessments, SOL’s, Global Awareness Projects and end of year activities!   We have enjoyed this weeks’ class picnics and hope to see many of you next week to celebrate the end of the school year.  I know you will join me in helping to keep our students focused on learning and having fun while keeping it a safe environment during these last few weeks of school. 

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

Literacy News

As we wrap up the school year, many grade levels have been working on content area research by combining science or social studies content and doing research to learn more.  Also, many grade levels have been doing book clubs in their classroom.  Students are reading novels in groups and learning how to talk about the character’s development and change throughout the story.  These clubs are a nice way to get our students ready for summer.  Encourage your child to start a book club in your neighborhood this summer.  This helps our students to understand how life long readers interact with texts in everyday life.  Our Fairfax County librarians will be coming next week to share some highlighted books with all grade levels.  These would be a great place to start for your book clubs!
