Have a wonderful summer! Kindergarten and New Student Registration

Registration is ongoing for Kindergarten and students new to the Lees Corner community! All children who reach their 5th birthday on or before September 30, 2022 are eligible for Kindergarten enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year.

More information on registration can be found at https://www.fcps.edu/registration.

Please share this information with any new LCES families!

Thank you for your feedback through the Family Engagement Survey!

Earlier this year, FCPS and Lees Corner asked families to respond to the Family Engagement Survey. Thank you to the families who participated! We are grateful for your willingness to provide helpful information about your experiences here at Lees Corner. Here are some of highlights from the survey:

Most Positive Ranking Items (More than 90% of participants agreed or strongly agreed with the following statements):

  • Information provided to me by the school is easy to understand.
  • My school is safe.
  • My child feels safe at school.
  • This school welcomes families of different backgrounds and cultures.
  • There is at least one caring adult at the school that my child trusts.

Least Positive Ranking Items (More than 20% of participants disagreed or strongly disagreed with the following statements):

  • This school provides me with opportunities to connect with other families.
  • I received enough information about what I can do at home to help my child improve his or her learning.
  • I received enough information about what I can do at home to support my child with mental health and wellness.
  • There are opportunities for me to volunteer at my child’s school.
  • The school staff works with me to identify social and emotional skills that my child can develop to be successful.

We will continue to develop plans to enhance family engagement and will work to improve in these areas listed as least positive. We are hopeful to restore our in person volunteer and community events! During Fall 2022, we will generate ways for you to share your ideas or willingness to support this work at Lees Corner.  We are excited to continue to grow our connections with families in meaningful and collaborative ways!

End of the Year Fun

This week was filled with fun. A highlight of the week was our outdoor pep rally and the 6th grade basketball game. Our players and band were AWESOME!

Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications Due This Summer

For the past two years, the federal government has provided no-cost meals to all public school students without the need to complete the annual Free and Reduced-Price Meal application. The extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year, meaning families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for the 2022-23 school year. 

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application before the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.

Students approved for Free and Reduced-Price Meals may qualify for additional benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes. 

Summer Meal Service

No-cost summer meals will be served at all FCPS summer school locations this year. Please visit our website for updated information during the summer.

LCES Staffing Changes for 2022-2023

Happy Retirement! Mrs. Hellman, Kindergarten Teacher

I was lucky enough to start my second teaching career 20 years ago, here at Lees Corner, after having taken a break for 12 years to be at home. Lauri Hilburger provided a chance for me to get my foot in the door by asking me to be her long-term sub while she was on maternity leave with Sam. As much as I loved that time, I left teaching again for another four years.

With college tuitions looming, I finally found I was ready to re-enter teaching full time by joining the kindergarten team here. It was our first year of all day Kindergarten, and each class had 30 students.

I consider myself fortunate to have remained here for 15 years, in the room where my oldest child once came for kindergarten.

My husband and I will be moving to Portland, OR to be near our three sons. We look forward to our family being together again, but I will certainly miss the community of friends at school.

If you would like to stop by the school to say good-bye, Mrs. Hellman will be available on Friday from 2:00-2:30 PM.

  Mrs. Curry, Office Assistant

I started working at Lees Corner in 2017.  I have enjoyed working with our talented staff and getting to know the students and their families.  Prior, to coming to Lees Corner I worked at Virginia Run as a Kindergarten IA for 5 years and as a substitute teacher.  

I have already moved to the Philadelphia area, which is home for me.  I am excited to be close to family and lifelong friends. I am looking forward to traveling, decorating my new home and spending time with my perfect grandson.

We Are Going to Miss You!

 

This year we have many staff members moving on from Lees Corner to pursue other opportunities. Please join us in saying THANK YOU and Good-bye to the staff members below. We are going to miss them and wish them well on their new journeys! 

We have included email addresses below in case you would like to send someone a message. Staff members leaving FCPS will not have access to email after Monday, June 13th.

Ways to Make Sunshine

Last week we celebrated the completion of our One School One Book project in which the entire school read the book, Ways to Make Sunshine. Staff members wore their yellow staff shirts and all students received a frozen treat and a yellow bracelet.

Life is full of ups and downs and we can all be like Ryan and learn to make our own sunshine!

Spring Health and Safety

Fairfax County has transitioned to medium community level with  COVID-19 cases and outbreaks increasing in schools, especially elementary schools. We understand families and staff have concerns and questions.

Our commitment is to provide students with the education and support to help them succeed while maintaining a safe environment for in-person learning. Our layered prevention strategies have served us well throughout this school year, and are fully supported by the U.S. Department of Education and Northern Virginia Health Departments. 

Vaccinations are available for school-age children five and up and are proven to reduce the severity of illness. Everyone is encouraged to get vaccinated or boosted.

Currently, masks are optional for all students, staff, and visitors. We encourage families and staff to consider wearing a mask when reports of COVID cases are high or if they or a family member is at high risk. CDC advises individuals to wear a mask when there is a lot of COVID in your community. See a full list of masking recommendations on the CDC website.

If Fairfax County transitions to high community level, FCPS will require all students, staff, and visitors to wear a face covering when indoors (except while actively eating/drinking) on school property (to include the buildings, school buses and other school provided vehicles).

 In alignment with the Code of Virginia, the parent/legal guardian of any child enrolled in an FCPS school may elect for such child to not wear a face covering while on school property (to include FCPS buildings). No reason or documentation will be necessary to elect for your child to not wear a mask.

One of the most important things we can all do is check for mild, cold-like symptoms each day, such as fever, runny nose, cough, or shortness of breath. Parents and guardians are advised to keep their students home if sick and get them tested to stop further spread from occurring. Employees are also advised to stay home and get tested when feeling sick.

The most up to date information is available on the Health and Safety Guidance Document webpage. If you have questions or concerns unique to your child’s situation, please contact your school. 

SOL Testing Schedule--Next Week   Next week will be a very busy testing week!

Monday, May 16th  --  3rd grade students will take part 1 of the Math test

Tuesday, May 17th -- 3rd graders will take part 2 of the Math test; 4th graders will take the math test

Wednesday, May 18th --5th and 6th graders will take the math test

Thursday, May 19th -- Retakes for 3rd grade Reading, part 1 and 4th grade Reading

Friday, May 20th -- Retakes for 3rd grade Reading, part 2 and 5th grade Science

Makeup tests may be administered throughout the week. Your child's teacher will provide you with the exact dates.

Testing in most classrooms will begin by 9:15 AM each day so it is very important that students arrive at school on time and no later than 9:00 AM.

Tests are untimed so students may have as much time as they need. Many students, but not all, do finish by lunch time. If you will be picking your child up early, please call the school to see if your child has finished testing or not.

Fun Fit Fridays (F3) Starting Soon! Registration Open Until Thursday.

 

We are excited to invite you and your child(ren) to our run/walk program, Fun Fit Fridays (or F3).  Students in all grade levels, K-6, are welcome to participate, as well as parents and teachers!  

Students, parents, and teachers are encouraged to meet on the Lees Corner track to run/walk laps on Friday mornings from 8:10-8:35 AM beginning on Friday, April 15 and running through Friday, June 3. If a student is not running/walking in the program, he or she should not arrive at school earlier than 8:35 AM 

Fun Fit Fridays is a token reward program. Each student-participant is issued a running card to keep track of his or her laps and total miles over the course of the year.  Students run/walk as many laps as possible in the 25-minute time period every Friday morning. After a student completes one lap around the track, an adult scans the student’s card. Each completed running card totals 30 laps, or 5 miles. Students receive a toe token upon completion of 5 miles. After 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles, students receive a number token representing the miles completed.  

This is an excellent opportunity for your son or daughter to meet new friends, enjoy the benefits of running/walking, and develop an appreciation for fitness. We hope this program builds self-confidence and improves fitness levels among our students and within the community. Everyone is welcome to join us!

If your child will participate in F3, please fill out this form and return it to your child's teacher by Thursday, March 31st.
