End of School Year - Distance Learning @ GFES

Glen Forest ES News and Announcements 1 month 1 week ago

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

Good afternoon Families,

We are having amazing experiences with our staff and students as we continue to connect through Distance Learning this school year. We want to end the year strong knowing that there will be summer learning opportunities for your children. Therefore, we ask that you read over these expectations with your children so that they are receiving the most out of their Distance Learning experiences. Distance Learning for this school year ends on Thursday, June 11th with a summer program beginning on Monday, June 29th. More information will be sent explaining these summer learning opportunities later this week.

  1. Log in to class on time
  2. Stay logged in for the length of the class – both morning AND afternoon
  3. Have paper and pencil ready
  4. Find the quietest space possible when working
  5. Participate – raise hand, answer questions
  6. When possible, check-in with your child to ensure the above expectations are being followed during their Distance Learning class.

In addition, we realize many of your older children will spend time on-line this summer while they are not engaged with school. We would like to remind you of the importance in monitoring your child’s use of on-line social media platforms. This could include Snap Chat, Tik Tok, Instagram, Facebook, and on-line games such as Fortnight where the chat features are enabled.

Here are additional resources for on-line safety, as previously provided by our Student Support Team.

Guiding Children in a Digital World:

Our children are growing up in front of screens. Mobile devices make it possible to

listen, watch, play games, and interact with friends anywhere at any time. Children are using mobile media in classrooms and going online for homework assignments. Although children sometimes know more about digital media than parents, parents have an important role to play in guiding media use.

 

  1. Know what your children are watching and doing.

Talk with your children about what they are seeing and doing online - videos, TV shows, games, music, and favorite websites. Become familiar with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Pay attention to the ratings of video games and shows. Read reviews that describe the content. Is it too violent or adult-oriented? You can find reviews at http://www.commonsensemedia.org/.

  1. Get involved.

When possible, watch programs with your children, listen to their music, and play video games with them. Identify and discuss media stereotypes. Talk about the themes and values that are portrayed.

  1. Set an example.

When you are talking to your children, give your full attention. It will be difficult to teach your children how to balance media usage if you are always on a mobile device. Make meal times special by turning off all electronic devices, Don't bring cell phones to the dinner table. Use this time to talk with your children about their thoughts and experiences.

 

  1. Set limits on screen time.

Work with children to create a schedule that incorporates all activities, including playtime and exercise. Homework should come before other activities. They also need unstructured time to relax. Screen time can interfere with sleep. For younger children, remove electronic devices at bedtime. For teens, agree on a time that cell phones, tablets, and laptops will be turned off. Charge electronic devices in a room other than children's bedrooms. If you are worried about the amount of time your child spends online, discuss your concerns with your child. Come up with a plan to decrease screen time. Encourage participation in clubs, sports, cooking, or hobbies. Invite friends to your house for non-video game fun. Play board games, cook a special food, or take a walk to a park.

  1. Teach rules for online safety.

Use special blocking and tracking software from service providers or purchase commercial software. Find out how to set limits on social media so that strangers are blocked from access. Teach your child never to share personal information online. Tell children to let you know about anything that makes them uncomfortable online.

We appreciate your partnership as we continue to navigate Distance Learning and the acceptable use of social media platforms together. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Cindi Choate, Liz Manning, Amber Richard and Danielle Freese

Pick up of student belongings and laptop distribution

Glen Forest ES News and Announcements 1 month 1 week ago

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

Dear Families,

This week we returned over 450 student belonging bags while still distributing laptops. What a busy week! We understand that not all families were able to pick up due to the morning hours provided. Therefore, next week we will have two more days scheduled for pick up in the late afternoon.

The schedule will be Tuesday, June 9th and Wednesday, June 10th from 3-5 pm.

When you arrive, please stay in your cars and we will place the bag in the trunk or back seat of your vehicle.

To assist us, we are asking that you create a sign with your child’s name and teacher’s name. Please display the sign as you enter the parking lot. This will decrease wait time.

For those of you that have more than one child at Glen Forest, please list all children on your sign and their teachers’ names, so we can collect all your children’s bags at one time. This will prevent you from having to make multiple trips to school.

After receiving your child’s bag, we ask that you drop off any school materials; such as, band and string instruments, library books and classroom reading books. There will be bins labeled for these items in front of the school. Please see the map for driving directions.

The last station is for those who need to pick up their children’s medications and for those receiving refunds. Guidelines will be posted as to the procedure to pick up these items to ensure we adhere to the Health Department’s recommendations.

If you are feeling ill or have been asked by the Health Department to quarantine, please do not come to school. Stay home and we will arrange another time for you and your family that is more convenient.

We wish you and your family a wonderful weekend and appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time. Please know that we miss you and your children and can’t wait to reconnect in the fall.

Sincerely,

Cindi Choate, Amber Richard, Liz Manning and Danielle Freese

Justice Pyramid Message

Dear Justice Pyramid Families,

We are writing to you as your Pyramid Principals to let you know how disheartened we are in light of current events. Racism and hate have no place in the Justice Pyramid, rather our schools are places that strive towards inclusiveness and compassion for all while providing hope for the future.

Our staff is here to support children to process information and to learn and speak about kindness, justice, and what it means to be a good citizen. We will continue to work together to identify ways to have these important conversations with our staff and students. Our schools are committed to continue engaging in professional learning on equitable and culturally responsive practices, to challenge racism and injustice while promoting inclusive school communities where diversity is valued.

Here are a few resources for families on these topics:

As always, we thank you for your trust. We thank you for your partnership. We are hopeful about our future because the students and staff of the Justice Pyramid will continue to lead the change.

Le escribimos como sus directores de la pirámide para informarle cuán desanimados estamos a la luz de los acontecimientos actuales.

Continuaremos trabajando juntos para identificar formas de tener estas conversaciones importantes con nuestro personal y estudiantes. Nuestras escuelas se comprometen a continuar participando en el aprendizaje profesional en prácticas equitativas y culturalmente receptivas, para desafiar el racismo y la injusticia mientras se promueven comunidades escolares inclusivas donde se valora la diversidad.

Dear Families,

It doesn’t seem possible that the end of the year is fast approaching! We have missed your children and wish we could be together to celebrate, but unfortunately, the pandemic has impacted our plans.

For the last two weeks, our staff has been packing up your children’s’ belongings, as well as coordinating the distribution of yearbooks, spring pictures and personalized medications. We are now ready to distribute these bags of materials to our school community.

Please see the schedule below. It is essential that you adhere to the schedule, as staff will deliver the bags to your car. As we have over 1100 student bags to distribute, please stay in your cars and we will place the bag in the trunk or back seat of your vehicle.

Get Ready: You’ll need 3 paper sheets per player, a bucket or laundry basket.  

Get Set: Create 3 paper airplanes using a design of your choice. Place your bucket 5-10 feet away from your throwing line.

GO!

This event is called Paper Plane Corn Hole.

  • The object of the game is to score points by throwing your paper airplane into your bucket. You have 1 minute to score as many as possible.
  • Design and create 3 paper airplanes.
  • On the start signal, fly your airplanes as many times as you can toward your bucket.
  • Score 1 point for every plane that hits the outside of the bucket and 2 points for every plane that lands in the bucket.
  • Write your score down on the official Field Day Score Card.

SOCK-ER SKEE-BALL

Get Ready: 10 sock balls, 1 Laundry Basket, 1 Bucket, 1 Tupperware container

Get Set: Roll up the socks to make sock-balls. Stack the targets into skee-ball formation with the Tupperware inside the bucket and the bucket inside the laundry basket.

GO!

  • This event is called Sock-er Skee-ball. The object of this game is to score points by kicking the sock ball into the skee-ball targets.
  • You’ll do that by using your feet to kick the sock ball into the target.
  • Score 1 point for every sock ball that lands in the laundry basket.
  • Score 5 points for sock balls in the bucket.
  • Score 10 points for sock balls in the Tupperware container.

TOWEL FLIP CHALLENGE

Get Ready: 1 large beach or bath towel

Get Set: Lay your towel out flat on your floor and stand on it.

GO!

  • This event is the Towel Flip Challenge. The object of this game is to flip the towel as fast as you can without stepping off of it.

  • The towel must be flat at the start and flat at the finish.
  • You have 1 minute to complete the challenge.

BOWL BALL

Get Ready: 6 Bowls, 1 Sock Ball, Paper & Pencil to Tally Score  

Get Set: Set the bowls on the floor in a triangle pattern 3-4 inches apart. Put a piece of paper with the point total in the bottom of each bowl. Mark a throwing line 6-8 ft. away.

Hint: Big bowls are easier than small bowls!

GO!

  • The object of the game is to see how many points you can score in 1-minute.
  • You do this by tossing the sock ball into the bowls and scoring points based upon where they land.
  • After each throw, retrieve the sock ball and hustle back and throw again.
  • If the sock lands in a bowl, use the pencil and paper to tally the points for that bowl.
  • After 1-minute, calculate your tally and write your total number of points on the official Field Day Score Card.
               

PENGUIN RACE

Get Ready: 1 Sock or Tennis Ball and 2 Plastic Cups per Person

  • There are 2 different ways to play: (1) By Yourself or (2) Race A Partner.
  • By Yourself Challenge – How many points you can score in 1-minute?
  • Place the egg between your knees and waddle back and forth from one cup to the other. When you reach the cup, turn it over.
  • If you drop the egg, do 5 jumping jacks before you continue.
  • Score 1 point for each cup you turn over.
  • Race A Partner Challenge – Be the first Penguin to turn over 6 cups!
  • On the start signal, waddle to the first cup and turn it over.
  • Now hustle back to the other cup (as much as one can hustle while waddling). Continue back and forth.
  • If you drop the egg, do 5 jumping before you continue.
  • First to turn over 6 cups wins the race (scores 6 points).

Student guide for virtual classroom

Glen Forest ES News and Announcements 2 months 4 weeks ago

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

April 15, 2020

Good Afternoon Glen Forest Families,

Yesterday we started our Distance Learning and had a wonderful time reconnecting with our students.  Unfortunately, there were students in Fairfax County that acted inappropriately using the online program.  We are embedding the links to our classroom sessions in your children’s Blackboard 24-7 Learning accounts.  These daily links will give your children direct access to their teacher’s site and provide easy access to classroom recordings, for those unable to attend class at the designated time. 

Below are directions to help you and your children access the new links.  We have provided written instructions as well as a video link.  We plan to start instruction 2 hours later then yesterday.  Therefore, Kindergarten, 1st and 5th grades should start at 11 am and 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades at 12 noon.  We intend to hold our afternoon sessions, too. 

We apologize for all this confusion and ask that you be patient with us, as we learn to navigate this new way of interacting with your children.

Sincerely,

Cindi Choate

Principal
