Dear Stenwood Families:

Thank you for such a wonderful time at the Flip Flop Hop!  I was very touched by everyone’s kind words, well-wishes, and our celebration with two very large cakes!  Though moving on to the wonderful phase of life called retirement, I am none-the-less still quite emotional about leaving a school I so love.  Thank you again for celebrating with me on Friday evening. 

Just a few reminders…

Interested in hearing about the widening of I-66 as it pertains to Stenwood Elementary?  Please join us on the evening of May 28th from 6:00-7:00 for a meeting with VDOT officials and representatives from FCPS’ Office of Design and Construction.  The purpose of this meeting is to hear information and address questions specific to Stenwood Elementary (not the entire scope of the project).  Please note that the PTA newsletter listed the wrong times for this meeting; please note that the meeting begins at 6:00 and ends at 7:00.  Thank you. 

We will be live-streaming this year’s June 11th Variety Show on Twitter!

We hope everyone has a very relaxing time this upcoming three-day weekend.  Enjoy the outdoors and your time with family and friends. 

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley

All Rising 6th graders:

Virginia Law requires that all students entering sixth grade receive a booster dose of the Tdap vaccine prior to the beginning of school. The Tdap vaccine protects against tetanus (lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough) and is usually given around the age of 11, although it can be given as early as seven years of age.

Please send in documentation of the Tdap to the front office staff as soon as possible.

Sixth grade students will not be allowed to begin school in August 2019 without submitting proper documentation

Last day to pick up your lost item from the Cafeteria is on June 13th.  We have LOTS of water bottles, lunch bags, jackets, coats, etc. Thank you!

Calling all library books!  It’s that time of year again, Mrs. Cole needs to start rounding up library books.  All books are due back to the library by May 31st.  Students are still able to check out until that date, however, if they have overdue books, they will not be able to check out until the books are returned or paid for.  Please check with Mrs. Cole if you are unsure of your child’s library account.  Thank you.

Moving over the summer?

If your family is moving over the summer or will not be attending Stenwood next year, please contact our registrar, Sonja Hunt at snhunt@fcps.edu. Thank you!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Please don't forget to pick up all medication from our health room before the last day of school, June 13th by 12:00 p.m.  Medication cannot be sent home with your student.  Please note that any medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded.  If you have questions, please contact Mary Ann Schall, school health aide at 703-208-7610

Dear Stenwood Families:

We are looking forward to the Flip Flop Hop this Friday evening from 6-8.  Please plan on joining us this evening as the parent community will be recognizing Mrs. Dammeyer for her years of service to Stenwood Elementary and Fairfax County Public Schools.  Come on out to dance with your children and extend best wishes to Mrs. Dammeyer for her upcoming retirement! 

Thank you to our PTA President. Mrs. Peksens, and Executive Board who have served tirelessly over the past three years!  We so appreciate Mrs. Peksens and the tremendous amount of time and dedication she devoted to our school.  Thanks also to our entire Stenwood parent community for making our Staff Appreciation Week so special.

Dear Stenwood Families:

It gives me such a sense of joy and peace to know that Mrs. Riley will be the new principal of Stenwood!  Though I am retiring at the end of July, I announced my retirement early, not because I like long goodbyes, but rather so that the school system had the opportunity to get the very best candidate for the principalship at Stenwood.  It worked!  I have the utmost respect for Mrs. Riley; she is a true professional and a wonderful person.  As I see it, only the very best for our very best school!

Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Riley! 

I had the pleasure of participating in the county’s retirement ceremony this past Tuesday with my family and friends.

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Principal Riley

 

Final Notice: Extended to

Monday, May 13th

If your child is definitely returning to Stenwood next school year or if there is a possibility of such, we offer you the opportunity to share any comments with me regarding class placement. Yes, our preparation for next year actually does begin now! Please see the message below:

Though every classroom is full of fun learning and is busy with the business of each day, at the same time, we are beginning to think and plan for next school year.  The grade level teams, in conjunction with our specialists, Mrs. Hapangama, Mrs. Riley, and I will be working on tentative class groupings this spring, with classroom assignments finalized in late August.  As we make these placements, we consider many factors including individual student information, teacher input, and social relationships.  Every class will have a blend of children with diverse needs, personalities, and learning interests.  Due to the many factors we must consider in creating classroom placements, including the reassignment of some teachers to a different grade level and the hiring of new teachers, requests for a specific teacher cannot be honored.

If you have information that you believe is pertinent to your child’s placement for next year, please send a letter or email addressed to Peggy Dammeyer.  If sending via email, it would be most helpful if you included the name of your child/children and respective current grade levels within the subject line of the email. The letter must be in the office by Friday, May 3rd for it to be taken into consideration. Thank you.

Here are our SOL dates for students in 3rd – 6th grade.  We ask that parents please avoid scheduling vacations and appointments on the dates your child has an SOL.

Dear Stenwood Families:

We want to be sure that you marked your calendar for April 3rd for our annual Curriculum Night when the entire Stenwood staff will be here to greet you. Also, thinking ahead to other dates to ensure you have marked on your calendar…please make note of April 30th from 7:45-8:30 when we will host our annual Volunteer Breakfast. We hope that if you have served our school in any capacity this year (for example chaperoned a field trip, volunteered in the classroom, served on the PTA, cut out letters for a bulletin board for a teacher, served as a room parent, contributed to the grade level sponsored lunches, etc.), then you will plan on stopping by to join us for some coffee and a bagel or donut. We are so fortunate to have such amazing volunteers. In lieu of sending out separate invitations, we instead extend this invitation to our entire community, so as to be sure not to miss anyone who has contributed in a volunteer fashion to our school. Therefore, we do ask that you RSVP by calling the school office by close of business on April 23rd.  Because the event is happening prior to the start of school, please know that you are welcome to feed your children breakfast at home and bring them with you, as they will be in the story pit in the library enjoying a movie, while you enjoy visiting with our staff. Thank you.

Please join us in supporting our military families. PURPLE UP Day, April 10th, is a national day of recognition to show support for military youth and families by wearing purple. Why purple, you ask? Purple is the color of all the service colors blended together.

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley

Dear Stenwood Families,

I wanted to inform you of our SCA’s second effort this year to benefit our adopted sister school, Graham Road Elementary.   During the window of April 1-12, we will be collecting school supplies (see information below).  This drive will enable Graham Road students to have much needed materials. The principal of Graham Road had said that our earlier donation of gloves, hats, mittens made the children so happy.  We plan to deliver the donated items to Graham Road as soon as our collection is complete.  Know that your generosity is truly meeting the needs of some great children at a fellow FCPS school.  Thank you! 

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer

Hive Happenings Newsletter

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

Just a reminder…If you have a child who is being screened for consideration for the Advanced Academic Program, please mark your calendar for February 22 at 8:45-9:30 for our Local Level IV orientation session.  This meeting is mostly pertinent to parents of students who have been referred and might be found eligible for AAP Level IV services.  The eligibility letters are expected to be mailed by mid-April. 

Should you wish to complete a school health services survey regarding our very own Mary Ann Schall (health aide) and Vivienne Goldstein (public health nurse), please click on the link.  It takes less than 5 minutes.

Dear Stenwood Families:

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is studying how school environments relate to discipline practices in the school system. As part of the study, you will receive a survey from FCPS’ Office of Research and Strategic Improvement (ORSI). The surveys are designed to help FCPS understand your thoughts about the school environment and how discipline is approached in school. Surveys to parents will come via email; your participation is voluntary, and all responses will be anonymous. Thank you for your input. 

Sincerely,
Principal Dammeyer
Assistant Principal Riley
Interim Assistant Principal Worek
