Dear Stenwood Families,

Please remember to be sure to mark your calendar for April 3rd for our annual Curriculum Night when the entire Stenwood staff will be here to greet you (see information below), and while you are at it, be sure to mark your calendar for our Volunteer Breakfast on April 30th.

As mentioned in yesterday’s email message, please be on the lookout beginning today when all Stenwood parents will receive an email from FCPS Surveys inviting you to participate in a survey (please don’t inadvertently delete the email). The survey is a standard part of the principal evaluation process which occurs every three years, and you have the opportunity to provide anonymous input about various topics to include instructional leadership, school climate, human resources management, organizational management, communication and community relations, and professionalism. This is a standard part of the process, and your feedback is important to me; please know that I do value your input even though I am retiring this year! Please take a moment to offer your anonymous feedback using the link within the email. I appreciate your input, and I thank you for your time.

Thank you for your support of our Kids Heart Challenge. We raised a total of $15,048.00 for the American Heart Association. Thanks to Mrs. Udasco and Mrs. Opsahl for their coordination of this event.

And lastly, please join me in congratulating Mr. Vu, our Building Supervisor, on his promotion! Unfortunately, it means that Stenwood loses his services, but we are so happy for him for this well-deserved promotion.

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley

A Message from FCPS--


In Fairfax County Schools, county agencies and families are working together to create an environment where children and youth can safely learn, work, and play. Similar to our message containing information about the 13 Reasons Why NETFLIX program and the Blue Whale Challenge, we are sending this communication to alert you to a recent rise in new games and social media challenges that encourage young people to participate in harmful behavior.

One example of this is a potentially harmful game called the “Momo Challenge" that has reportedly been posted on different social media platforms to include WhatsApp and assigns players a series of progressively more intense tasks, to include self-harm. It is important to note that the Momo Challenge is a hoax that has received a significant amount of media attention.

This hoax has been seen across the United States in recent months, targeting primarily elementary aged children. Vigilant parents and guardians in Fairfax County have also reported seeing information about the Momo Challenge or similar games on their children's phones and have alerted school authorities.

Please talk to your child about this type of internet hoax, and check his or her phone or other device for signs of an app or communications with anyone telling them to do specific tasks. This provides an excellent opportunity to remind your child of best practices for internet safety and digital citizenship:


   • Remind your child information shared on social media is not always true   and how quickly misinformation can create a panic online.

   • Children should never engage in conversations with strangers online.
   • Be aware of the sites and apps your children are using and know their usernames and passwords.
   • Turn off suggested autoplay on videos to stop children from viewing content they have not selected, and you have not approved.
   • If appropriate, tell your children that Momo is not real and will not hurt them.
   • Encourage open dialogue with them around any concerns.

FCPS has additional resources available on this website: https://www.fcps.edu/node/32086. If you have concerns about your child, please contact your school counselor. Please be aware that a number of mental health resources are available, including Fairfax County Public School resources: School Counseling Services at 571-423- 4420, School Psychology Services at 571-423-4250, and School Social Work Services at 571-423-4300 and Fairfax County resources: Crisis Link Hotline at 703-527-4077, Merrifield Emergency Services 703-573-5679 (available 24/7) or Entry and Referral during business hours at 703-383-8500. The Fairfax County Police Department non-emergency number is 703-691-2131.

More information about the Momo Challenge and other internet challenges or hoaxes is available at these links:

• An article from the Ohio Department of Education contains talking points to use when speaking with your child: http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Other-Resources/News/Know-Momo-and-her-Deadly-Challenge-to-our-Youth
• An article from Common Sense Media about online challenges: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/viral-youtube-challenges-internet-stunts-popular-with-kids

Dear Stenwood Families:

It’s so nice having your children back in school! 

We need your help now, and I’m returning to my days as a teacher and assigning some homework, though this time to parents, that would benefit your children and our school if you attend to this right away, please.  It is—
 
To ensure adequate staffing for next school year, our process actually begins now!  Your child received a Student Intention Form today.  Please take a few minutes to complete the form for each child currently enrolled at Stenwood and have your child return the form to school tomorrow.  Having information about your plans for next school year helps us to solidify our numbers; our student numbers play a major role in the number of teachers assigned to our school.  Your quick turn-around is appreciated.  If you are uncertain of your plans, please simply write a brief note explaining your uncertain situation.   

In addition, the annual Survey of Preschool Children was sent home as well.  Please encourage all of your neighbors with children of kindergarten age to contact Mrs. Sonja Hunt in the front office so that we can get all kindergarteners registered soon for the 2019-2020 school year.  And of course, if you have a rising kindergartener at home, please fill out this form, too.  This registration information, likewise, helps to determine the number of teachers assigned to our school. 

Likewise, if you have neighbors whose children are older than kindergarten age who are talking about leaving private schools and registering at Stenwood for next year, please encourage your neighbors to contact Mrs. Sonja Hunt now.  

Thank you for completing the forms tonight and returning them tomorrow.  We really appreciate it.

Hive Happenings Newsletter REMINDER 12/24/18 - 01/04/2019 Winter Break (School Office Closed) Dear Stenwood Families: We enjoyed a great concert yesterday from our band, strings, and choral students!  Mrs. Riley even came back to see the concert; she said she just couldn’t miss it.  The staff and students loved seeing her and cute little Jacob.  Thanks for supporting our SCA’s clothing drive.  We had over seven boxes donated, and they were given to Graham Road Elementary. Our student's were very excited watching the pile of goods grow as families gave so generously.  Thank you very much!  We could use your help.  If you’ve inadvertently slipped into the habit of running late in the mornings, please resolve to make an adjustment to rectify that situation.  Teachers begin the instructional day at 8:30, as soon as the first student enters the room.  The first bell rings at 8:30, and all students are expected to be within their classrooms by 8:40 when the second bell rings.  Students who arrive to their classrooms after 8:40 are marked tardy.  Similarly, if you choose to pick your child up at the end of the day at kiss and ride, please be sure to arrive prior to our 3:20 bell.  Thank you for your assistance.  As winter break approaches, I want to wish you and your family a wonderful break.  I hope you have a great time with family and friends.  In an effort to support our students in receiving that same joyful time with family and friends, we are refraining from assigning homework over the break.  Nor will we have any tests immediately upon return from break.  It is our hope that this will allow everyone a true rest and the time to engage in family traditions.  Enjoy and see you in the new year.   
Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley
Interim Assistant Principal Worek

Message for Advanced Academic Level IV Eligible Students’ Families—

In order to have a deadline better aligned with staffing and hiring timelines for schools, the transfer/reactivation form requesting a change of school choice for AAP Local Level IV or Level IV Center for eligible students has been moved up to May 15, 2019. 

If families do not submit a transfer form by May 15, 2019, the current placement will continue for the next school year for students in Grades 4-6.  Newly eligible students will communicate their choice of Local Level IV or Level IV Center in the permission for placement form submitted to the AAP office in early May.

For Level IV-eligible elementary students transitioning to middle school, the SIS rollover to “next school” will assign Local Level IV students to their base middle school (assigned by home address), and Level IV Center students to the middle school Level IV center (assigned by home address).  Changes to this automatic school assignment may be made by parent/guardian request via the transfer form.

Parents/guardians may submit the Full-Time Advanced Academic Programs Level IV Transfer/Reactivation Form to the Advanced Academic Programs office by May 15, 2019, to communicate a change in school placement for the 2019-20 school year.  Submission of this form represents a one-year commitment to attend the selected Level IV option and cannot be changed until the following school year.

Hive Happenings Newsletter Please note: Friday, December 14th, 2018 is a 3-hour early dismissal day! REMINDER 12/24/18 - 01/04/2019 Winter Break (School Office Closed) Dear Stenwood Families: Our fifth and sixth graders had a wonderful Battle of the Books this past Friday.  I am proud of our students’ initiative to read and become experts regarding so many novels.  They also exhibited excellent team work. Congratulations to both Mrs. Meader’s class and Mrs. Shepherd’s class who tied and are the lucky ones bringing home the coveted Stennie trophy! 
Message for Parents of Students in Grades 4, 5, and 6-- This winter our school, in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Education and the University of Virginia, is participating in a statewide student school climate survey. The purpose of this survey is to help schools assess their progress in establishing a positive school climate that promotes student learning.  I am writing to provide you with information on the student survey. The survey will be completed online using computers at school. The survey does not ask for your child’s name and all answers are anonymous (no one will know how your child answered the survey). Parents will not have access to their child’s survey answers. There is a copy of the survey available at school for your review and is available online at http://www.doe.virginia.gov/support/school-climate/index.shtml. The survey will ask questions such as how students feel about their school, how students get along with one another and their teachers, how students feel about school rules, their perceptions of their teachers’ willingness to help them, and how they feel about attending school. They will also be asked what kinds of bullying they may have observed at school and whether they have been bullied themselves. The survey is voluntary and your child can decide not to participate. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please notify the school office by telephone by December 21, 2018.  Your child will not receive any immediate benefit from participating in the survey, but the survey will help us to maintain a safe, inviting, and supportive learning environment for your child. Thank you for your cooperation in this important study of school climate.  
Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley
Interim Principal Worek
