Churchill Chatter - Issue 4, September 16, 2022

Dear Churchill Road Families,

What a beautiful day for our PTA family movie night.  We hope to see many of you later tonight for a showing of Sing 2 in our own backyard!       

This week, students worked diligently on assessments that will help us understand their needs and enable teachers to tailor lessons to target specific skills. Teachers will be working specifically with this data to ensure we support students by name and by need.  We are also excited with the communities that are being built within the individual classrooms.  Morning meetings are a highlight each and every day as students start the day interacting with one another and building these strong relationships! Overall, it was a great week filled with fun learning experiences. 

Have a fantastic weekend!

Churchill Chatter - Issue 2, August 26, 2022

Dear Churchill Road Students and Families,

What a week! We were thrilled to welcome our new families and returning families to Churchill Road for an exciting school year! It was wonderful to see so many parents and students at Open House, as well as smiling faces at Back to School Night. All of our Bobcats are so excited to be in school and are ready to learn!

We appreciate your support in preparing your child for the school year. You can continue to help us by developing routines at home in order to support your child’s learning.

We are looking forward to an outstanding school year! We’re committed to focusing on the positive and making Churchill Road Elementary School a place of joy.

Sincerely,

Students' Rights & Responsibilities

We are extremely happy to have your child in our school with us this year!

FCPS’ updated Student Rights & Responsibility booklet is now available online and in the ParentVue section of the Student Information System (SIS). The SR&R booklet explains expectations for student behavior, and adult responses to enhance school safety and to create a fair, equitable, and supportive school environment. 

Each year, we ask parents to review, sign, and return the SR&R to their child’s school. In ParentVue, you may now download and digitally sign the SR&R. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account will see the SR&R upon login to ParentVUE until the SR&R acknowledgement has been completed.

Your name in the digital signature box must match the parent/guardian’s first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted.

Please take a moment to log into ParentVue in your child’s SIS account to access the SR&R. Signatures are due by September 30, 2022.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty accessing the booklet.

A Big PTA Thank you!

We cannot thank the PTA for all that they have done this summer to support our Churchill Road Community.  Over the summer, they updated our staff lounge with new furniture, appliances, and artwork.  Additionally, they have worked tirelessly the past few weeks to connect with new families, out and about doing “Kindergarten Welcoming Chalking”, as well as providing a fabulous welcome back barbeque luncheon for our staff. 

We continue to be grateful for the entire PTA’s generosity to our staff. 

New Year, New Beginnings - Welcome New Staff  Request for Parental Permission to Use Digital Resources

Fairfax County Public Schools provides access to digital resources to maximize learning opportunities and protect student privacy. Each FCPS digital resource has had an instructional and technical review. Information about the educational technology tools approved for use within FCPS can be found in the online Digital Ecosystem Library

Some FCPS-approved resources used by Churchill Road students require parental consent. To view the list of resources that require consent, please visit our webpage and fill out the consent form here.  It is critical that parents complete this request for parental permission so teachers can plan to use the best technology tools with students this school year.

Parents can find more information about FCPS-approved digital resources on the Digital Resources in FCPS webpage.

Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Student safety is first and foremost for student arrival and dismissal.  On the first day of school, and each day thereafter, our staff will meet your student at the door and direct them to their classrooms or walk them to class, if needed.

Whether your student will be a walker, a bus rider, or arrive to school via private vehicle at Kiss 'n Ride, please review our comprehensive Arrival and Dismissal Presentation

Our school Crossing Guard, Beeda Lee-Pawlak, has provided key safety guidlines surrounding the intersection of Raymond Avenue and Churchill Road below.

Safety Guidelines from our School Crossing Guard

Hello Churchill Elementary Families,

Hope all are ready for a new school year! I'm happy to report that I'm back as your Fairfax County Police Crossing Guard for the 2022-2023 school year at the intersection Raymond and Churchill Rd. We are all excited and ready to get started. Car and pedestrian traffic will be heavy and hectic for the first 2 or 3 weeks or so. For the parents and students who will be walking to and from school, I have a few guidelines to help things run a bit more smoothly. Please read the list of guidelines below and make certain to go over them with your children if they will be walking to and from school this year. I greatly appreciate your support, cooperation, and patience.

  • When I am present at the intersection of Raymond Rd. and Churchill Rd. I will stop all directions of car traffic to allow pedestrians to cross. Please be patient, I have a method of cycling car traffic and pedestrians.
  • Please wait for my verbal command “CROSS” before crossing. Please cross briskly, with focus, but do not run.
  • Please do not follow me when I am entering the intersection to stop car traffic. I will make certain that all directions of car traffic have completely stopped before letting pedestrians enter the cross walk to begin crossing.
  • I will ask student patrols to hold pedestrians by saying "HOLD THEM". Please obey the student patrols (they will hold their arms out to their sides to signal not to enter crosswalk) and my verbal commands. Do not try to enter the cross walk after I have indicated to patrols to "HOLD THEM" or I have said "PLEASE STAY". This is very important, because I'm about to let the car traffic resume moving.
  • Please make certain to cross in the crosswalk. Do not jump off the curbs outside of the crosswalk to begin crossing.
  • If you are on a bike or scooter, please dismount your bike or scooter, and walk it across.
  • If you are parking your car in and around the school zone, please do not park in NO PARKING ZONES. We need to keep sight lines clear.
  • Please know that I will cross your children as if they are my own, with firm and direct commands. My only goal is to keep your kids and you safe.

Be Safe. See you at the crossings!

Beeda Lee-Pawlak
Fairfax County Police Crossing Guard

Free and Reduced Price Meal Applications

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. Families now must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced-price meals for the 2022-23 school year. Learn more about the Free and Reduced-Price Meal program online. 

Immunizations Required for 2022-23
Be Wise and Immunize!

School may be out for summer, but now is the time for your child to catch up on school immunizations!

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to Churchill Road registrar, Angie Kim, as soon as possible. 

Health Room Updates Changes to Medication Administration Management

This school year, FCPS is changing our medication protocols to help ensure the safety of our medication administration management in Fairfax County Public Schools. These changes include:

  • Any time you drop off or pick up a medication in the health room, a Medication Delivery/Pick Up Form will be completed and signed by both the parent/guardian and the School Health Aide or FCPS staff member. This form will document that all required authorizations are complete, and the number of pills or amount of medication accepted/returned.

Immunization Reminder  

As we begin to look ahead to the 2022-23 school year, Be Wise, Immunize! Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep children protected from many diseases. Many children missed their well check-ups and their recommended childhood immunizations during recent years of disruptions from COVID-19. It is critical to catch up now to keep children healthy and protect them from serious diseases.

We encourage you to check with your healthcare provider to make sure your child is up to date on required immunizations for the 2022-23 school year as soon as possible. If your child needs a vaccine to complete their records, you can make an appointment with your healthcare provider or visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for a schedule of child immunization clinics. 

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to Churchill Road as soon as possible.

Thank you Ms. Bamdad for 31 years of teaching at Churchill Road!

WE DID IT….AGAIN!

Bobcat Parents and Families,

We would like to take this moment to thank you for a challenging, yet immensely fulfilling school year. TOGETHER, we have navigated masks, distancing, vaccinations, quarantines, COVID notifications and sub shortages…all the while, TOGETHER we smiled, laughed and LEARNED. 

Your children grew in so many ways. They grew in friendships and navigated social situations. They grew as readers and mathematicians.They grew in kindness and in their resilience to handle what has crossed their path

We are so grateful for your continued grace and partnership.

Have a wonderful, relaxing and fun summer.

The entire Churchill Road Elementary School Staff
