Class Placement Input Form & Information Night

Thank you parents for your continued partnership with staff at Shrevewood ES!  We know that a good teacher-student match and a productive mix of children are ingredients for success, and we carefully consider each child’s strengths and needs during the class creation process.  While we do not accept requests for individual teachers by name, we encourage parents to share information school staff should be aware of to aid the process of creating classes for the 2022-2023 school year.  Keep in mind parent input is one source of information used to create classes and classes are not finalized until late August.  So that your submission can be considered prior to conversations with the teachers, please submit your input by Friday, May 20, 2022.  Thank you!

Dear Shrevewood Families,

What an amazing week it has been at Shrevewood. Teacher Appreciation week was in full swing! Teachers and staff certainly felt the love after receiving so many gifts, customized coffee orders, kind letters and so much more. It is a joy to educate your children and see them grow as learners and individuals. SOL testing started this week and will continue over the next 2 weeks. Please see the schedule below for more information. We have many events taking place towards the end of the year and would love to see students and their families participate so we can end the year strong. 

We hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks, 

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Teacher Appreciation Week

On behalf of our entire staff, THANK YOU so much for the abundance of appreciation we felt this week. Staff enjoyed massages, breakfast burritos, ice cream, endless treats and gifts and more. But best of all were the notes and cards written by families and students thanking their teachers and other staff for their hard work and dedication every day. 

Teacher Appreciation Week was a huge success thanks to all the family volunteers and staff members who pitched in to make it magical! Thank you!

WHAT DOES OPM MEAN?
These are the five elements intended to help people understand ways to build positive relationships in their own lives: identifying and appreciating the good in others, knowing my words and actions affect others, supporting others when they struggle, cheering others’ successes, and being present and giving others my attention

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We had a very exciting week this week! We welcomed rising kindergarteners and their families to Shrevewood with guided tours on Tuesday evening. Many classes took a field trip to see Marshall High School's production of Frog & Toad. If you have not seen it yet, we highly recommend you visit. There are many showtimes this weekend and it is a funny, entertaining and kid-friendly production. Sixth Graders also took a trip to Philadelphia on Thursday to visit historic sites and connect their learning to real life places.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks, 

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday!

The PTA’s Appreciation Committee is celebrating the amazing staff at Shrevewood throughout the week, but we need YOUR help to make this week extra special. Aside from our wonderful classroom teachers, the week celebrates every single staff member that helps to make Shrevewood great! Please consider expressing your family's thanks to all staff (office/admin, custodial/facilities, and our many specialists) in any way possible. 

Help to make the week SUNsational by participating in one or more of the activities below!

SIGN-UP HERE: Gratitude Expressions

Teachers & staff will love walking into the school on Monday!  As they exit their cars, the sidewalks will be beaming with positive messages, and we will really touch their hearts when they see the front entrance adorned with posters of thanks and the conference room decorated as a beach oasis. Come by Saturday or Sunday to help decorate our sidewalks!

STUDENT DAILY ACTIVITIES 

These are some suggestions of ways your student and family can contribute to celebrating Shrevewood’s staff. If you have other ideas or would like to show your appreciation in different ways – please feel free! 

Let's really spoil our teachers with our gratitude and appreciation for all their hard work every day for our kids and families!

BINGO Night & Bake Sale

Please join us on May 13th for a BINGO Night hosted by the PTA at Shrevewood. BINGO will start at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria. The 6th Grade Class will also be hosting a Bake Sale during BINGO.

Transportation Delays May 2nd

The bus driver shortage continues to be a challenge for school systems across the nation, including FCPS. On Monday, May 2, we anticipate additional delays due to employee absences in observance of the holiday.

Please visit the Bus Delay Website https://busdelay.fcps.edu/ and, if registered, monitor bus route updates on the Here Comes the Bus app. If your child’s bus is more than 30 minutes late, you will receive an eNotify message via email or text. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Class Placement Information Night Positivity Project

Next week we will begin learning about LEADERSHIP.

WHAT DOES LEADERSHIP MEAN?
You value each member of your group and inspire people to do their best. Leadership can be both formal and informal. It is concerned with getting others to do what needs to be done while maintaining group morale to ensure readiness to act in the future. This character strength’s focus is on the personal qualities of leaders, rather than the practice of leadership. These qualities include the ability to understand others and inspire them toward a common goal, the capacity to mitigate conflict and mold consensus, and the desire to lead other people.

Project Lift SOL Schedule

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We had a great week with wonderful weather! We were able to use our outdoor learning spaces and take some of our classes outside. The Scholastic Book Fair was this week and we absolutely loved seeing students so excited to choose their favorite books to take home. Our school's love of learning and reading was evident! Thank you to our librarian, Ms. Wenzel, for organizing this event for our school. 

We hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Positivity Project

Next week we will begin learning about CONNECTION AND PURPOSE.

WHAT DOES CONNECTION/PURPOSE MEAN?
You have beliefs about the meaning of life and your life’s purpose. You seek to be part of something greater than yourself. Purpose gives individuals the sense that they are put on this earth for a reason and that they are somehow connected with humanity or the universe. People who possess a sense of purpose believe that they were put on earth for a reason. That reason can have all kinds of variety. It could be to create a unique invention, to bring joy
through art or music, or to raise their children to become good people. These people have a true calling.

Kindergarten Tours

Save the date for kindergarten school tours on April 26th. Tours will start at 5:30 and end at 6:30. You may come any time between 5:30 and 6:30. If you have a kindergarten student who will attend Shrevewood in the fall you are invited to attend a tour of our building. 

Please see our website for more information: SWES Website

Positivity Project

Next Week we will learn about Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence. 

What does this mean?

You notice and value the world’s beauty and people’s skills. You don’t take things for granted. Appreciation of beauty and excellence is the ability to
identify and enjoy that which is admirable in the world. There are three types of goodness in which positive psychology focuses: physical beauty (e.g. a sunset, song, or building); an exceptional skill or talent; and moral goodness (e.g. a character strength). Appreciation of beauty can generate awe; appreciation of a skill can generate admiration; and appreciation of moral goodness can generate moral elevation. All of these feelings (awe, admiration, and moral elevation) help us forget ourselves and find increased joy and meaning in the world.

Kindergarten Tours

Save the date for kindergarten school tours on April 26th. More information will be shared soon. if you have a kindergarten student who will attend Shrevewood in the fall you are invited to attend a tour of our building.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

FCPS shared information earlier this week about a new resource that will soon be available to all Shrevewood students to support learning. All FCPS students will have unlimited access to online tutoring support services through Tutor.com at no cost.

Students can connect online any time, and in most subjects for as long as they need. Tutoring is focused instruction provided to students in a one-on-one format through voice or text chat. Tutors will focus on developing students’ strengths and capabilities in reading, mathematics, or other specified subjects. Tutoring services may be accessed before, during, or after school hours and/or on weekends through a link in Schoology. 

All tutors must pass a rigorous application process including an extensive background check. No personal information is shared between a student and tutor. All sessions are recorded and transcripts are available for review by teachers and parents/guardians. 

Students will automatically have access to the Tutor.com tutoring service unless a parent/guardian submits an opt-out request. Watch for an email soon that will include the online tutoring services notice and opt-out information. Additionally, a hard copy form will be sent home with every student. 

For additional information, visit our online tutoring services website. As always, please contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks, 

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Read- A- Thon Update

Today is the last day for our Read- A- Thon!  

Entries for the READ-O competitions and mybooster pledges are open until midnight Friday 25th!

 

Important Parent Reminders

Pick Up & Drop Off: 

Late arrivals:  Please remember to walk your student into the main office and sign them in with the reason for their tardiness.  

Early pick-ups:  Should be picked-up prior to 3:30pm as to not disrupt classroom end of day activities and affect the bus traffic. 

Communicating During the School Day:

During the school day, please do not text, call or email with your students.  This can be a huge distraction for our students.  If you are in need to communicate with your student, please email your student's teacher or call the main office.  

Thank you for helping us ensure all of our students get the most out of their day learning with us.

SOL Schedule

* Students in Advanced Math in Grades 5 & 6 will take their advanced grade level math tests on the date listed for their current school grade level (e.g. Grade 5 Advanced Math students will take the Grade 6 Math SOL on May 18 when their grade level tests.)

Dear Shrevewood Families,

Our Read-A-Thon is wrapping up the first week. Thank you to all the participating families, so far we have raised $10,000.  We are well on our way to our $15,000 goal.  

Shrevewood celebrated Day 2 of our Read-A-Thon with a virtual author visit (see picture above) from Laura Murray! Laura Murray is a local author known for her picture book series The Gingerbread Loose In The School. Students in K-3 had a great time listening to Laura share one of her books and learning all about her writing process. The session ended with an engaging riddle game where students had to guess what part of school the Gingerbread was hiding! Thank you Laura Murray for bringing joy to us Tuesday morning!

Please read our Read-A-Thon update below for a special weekend challenge! 

Have a great weekend!

Our first week of our Roald Dahl Read-a-thon is almost up. Thank you for your amazing generosity. We passed $10,000 this morning and are on our way to meeting our goal of $15,000 to buy new flexible seating furniture for all the classrooms.

You are all amazing!  But we aren't stopping yet.

This weekend we have a SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS competition for the students.

The class that has the most donations pledged on www.mybooster.com will win a WHIZZ POPPING prize of having Mr. DeSmyter or Ms. Lilburn teach them!!

Hopefully they will be fun and not like MISS TRUNCHBULL from MATILDA!!

Totals will be taken from midnight Friday to midnight Sunday.

Our Read-A-thon will run until the 25th March so there is still a whole week for students to earn more prizes by fundraising/reading and completing their bingo cards in class.

Positivity Project: Other People Mindset

What does it look like?
There are many different ways to support others when they struggle. These can include: listening while they describe something that happened and their feelings about it, helping people in need, or simply just being there and sitting together in silence.

Why does it matter? 
When we help others we help ourselves! Research shows, people who are
“givers” and help others, lead more meaningful lives. Supporting others when they struggle is an important part of being human. Supporting others in this way leads to a chain reaction of positive behavior that makes us feel good about ourselves and those around us.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

The FCPS Family Engagement Survey is coming to your email the afternoon of Sunday, March 13. Please participate—your feedback is critical in helping to inform and improve FCPS’ practices to best support our students.

FCPS is partnering with independent firm K12 Insight to administer the survey, and it will be available in eight languages. For more information, please watch this short video from Superintendent Brabrand and visit the Family Engagement Survey webpage. Your voice matters!

Positivity Project

WHAT IS LOVE OF LEARNING?
You master new topics on your own or in school.
Those with a love of learning are intrinsically motivated and
engaged in a topic regardless of achieving an external
standard. They enjoy learning simply for the sake of
learning. They don’t need a prize or a high grade as a
reward. Their reward is the process of doing the work and
improving. People who love learning experience positive feelings in the process of acquiring skills, building on existing knowledge, or learning something completely new. Over time, individuals with this strength may develop deep and wide knowledge. Their knowledge enables them to make
significant contributions to others’ understanding.


WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Developing a love of learning is highly beneficial for an individual. It means that they are intrinsically motivated to deepen their existing skills and abilities, or learn something completely new. Since intrinsically motivated action is correlated with positive emotions, those who act on their love of learning may also have enhanced mental and physical health. Additionally, individuals who love learning have the desire and ability to overcome challenges, due to
a sense of autonomy and control over their environment.

Read- A- Thon is Starting!

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

This year's Read-A-Thon will be March 14-25.  It's time for Shrevewood’s 2022 Read-a-Thon and BOY is it going to be a GREAT one! This year’s Roald Dahl theme will hopefully inspire the kids, and just like MATILDA, it will hopefully fuel their thirst for knowledge. Though to be a FANTASTIC success, we need you, and we hope you are willing to donate to our main fundraiser this year. 

We will be raising funds to equip every classroom with Flexible seating.  Each classroom will be provided with three special tables that are moveable.  These tables also have a dry erase capability negating the need for individual whiteboards.  They will allow for enhanced learning and assist with small group collaboration, Math and Reading workshops. 

To earn your sponsorship there won’t be a ‘DAHL’ moment at the school.

The kids will earn GOLDEN TICKETS by taking part in reading events throughout the fundraiser and be challenged by completing BINGO cards with reading tasks over the two weeks to compete in a grade-wide competition.  They also have the chance to earn additional MARVELLOUS incentives by raising money here; these include: Fidget Spinners, Ice cream vouchers and 10 tickets for BINGO.  But they need your help to reach those goals. So, please be a PEACH and put your MAGIC FINGERs into your pockets, and if we meet our school-wide fundraising goal of $15,000, the school will put on a movie and popcorn night. 

Students can access their grade level BINGO card on SCHOOLOGY through the ALL SCHOOL course.   Kindergarten Orientation 🌟Kindergarten Virtual Orientation🌟 March 16  6:00-7:00

See Matilda Jr. at Kilmer Middle School

Kilmer Middle School’s Drama Department is excited to announce their performance of Matilda JR!

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!

General admission performances are Friday, March 18th (7pm), Saturday, March 19th (2pm & 7pm), Friday, March 25th (7pm) and Saturday, March 26th (2pm & 7pm)! Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at www.kmsdrama.org (starting March 7th) or at all lunches at Kilmer Middle School the week of March 7th.  TICKETS WILL NOT BE SOLD AT THE DOOR.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We hope that you all are enjoying your long weekend!  Looking to next week,  Shrevewood will participate in Virginia’s Statewide Tornado Drill on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.  This is one of the required annual safety drills. Teachers will prepare their students ahead of time so they know what to expect.

We want to thank our staff, students, and families for their flexibility and teamwork as we shifted again this school year. We appreciate everyone understanding that all families have a different perspectives and different beliefs about what they feel is best for their children and their families. 

Thank you!

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Clarification of Changes to COVID Protocols

Masking:

  • It is optional for students and staff to wear masks in school or on school buses (as of March 1, 2022).
  • Please have a conversation with your child about your family's preference and the importance of respecting other families' choices.
  • We know there are multiple reasons why parents/guardians may want their child to continue to wear masks or not wear masks.
  • Teachers are not able to keep track of parents' preferences on mask wearing during the day, so it is important that your child knows your wishes.

Notifications:

  • We will send an email each day to notify you of positive cases reported to us that day. If there are no reported cases, you won't see an email. 
  • You will no longer receive the summary email on Fridays for the previous week. 
  • Schools are no longer conducting contact tracing to identify close contacts and will only track cases to determine if there is an outbreak in a classroom, grade level, or larger group.
Spring Picture Day Read-A-Thon

COMING SOON! Read- A- Thon is happening March 14- 18! Start getting those books ready. Read-A-Thon is back! This year we are reading to help get our classrooms new flexible seating options! Can your class read the most and get Mr. D as your teacher for the day? Can you raise 50$ and win a Shrevewood Fidget Spinner?  Look for sign up information soon! 

Cafeteria Volunteers Needed Parents, we are in need of Cafeteria Volunteers!

Volunteers would: 

  • Monitor cafeteria during different time slots (ranging from 10:50- 2:15) 
  • Help custodians clean tables 
  • Monitor students and prompt them to line up

Student Intentions

Hard to believe that we are already planning for next year.  We ask that all parents/guardians complete the Student Intention Form, one for each student, to let us know if your student will, or will not, return to Shrevewood next year.  If you are not returning, please let us know where your child/children will be attending school. 

Please complete the form and send to Maria Giuliani, [email protected], or return to the front office.

2022-2023 Kindergarten Survey

We need your help in projecting the Kindergarten enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year. Virginia Law, section 22.1-254, requires that children who will reach their fifth birthday on or before September 30, 2022, must be enrolled in Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year unless the parent or guardian notifies the school in writing that they do not wish the child to attend school until the following year.

If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 30, 2022, please complete this form and return it no later than March 1, 2022. If any of your neighbors have children who will be eligible for Kindergarten, please share this information with them, as we are especially interested in reaching those Shrevewood families who do not have children currently attending school.

The information on this survey will help the school plan for adequate facilities and personnel for the 2022-2023 school year. We thank you in advance for returning the form no later than March 1, 2022. Should you have any questions please contact our SIA/Registrar, Maria Giuliani.

Changes to Masking in FCPS begins Tomorrow

E-Notify2 months 2 weeks ago

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

Shrevewood Families, 

As you know we are entering a new phase of the pandemic that will bring about changes to our health and safety measures. First of all, know that the health and safety of you and our students is our highest priority.

State law now allows parents/guardians to elect for their children to not wear masks at school starting March 1, regardless of health metrics in our community. 

In addition, late Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated health guidance that included new metrics for determining COVID-19 community levels. Based on this new guidance, Fairfax County’s current COVID-19 community level is low. 

Based on these new metrics and CDC guidance, FCPS will now adjust our roll back plan and allow everyone - staff and parents/guardians of FCPS students - to make a choice whether or not they will wear a mask starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 1. 

Here at Shrevewood ES, all students will be treated the same regardless of their masking choice. Students will not be asked to separate based on who is wearing a mask or not. Our interactions with all students will be based on care and respect. Remember, our students look to us as examples of how to treat each other and how to work through these situations. 

Please talk with your children about your families' choice for mask wearing at school. If your child arrives without a mask, we will assume that is the choice you made at home. 

Families of students with special needs, who may need additional consideration for health reasons, should work with their IEP or 504 teams.

We assure all students and families that Shrevewood ES will remain a caring and supportive place to learn. As always, please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Thank you, 

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Dear Shrevewood Families,

It is hard to believe that on Tuesday we will be entering the month of March. The months of January and February went very quickly. And, after the beautiful 70-degree day on Wednesday we are looking forward to Spring which is right around the corner. Spring is a busy time of year and we are excited about some of our upcoming events.

Please remember that next Thursday is a two-hour early release (3/3), and Friday there is no school for the Staff Development Day (3/4). Our staff will be participating in several professional development sessions.

Thank you!

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 30, 2022, please complete this form and return it no later than March 1, 2022. If any of your neighbors have children who will be eligible for Kindergarten, please share this information with them, as we are especially interested in reaching those Shrevewood families who do not have children currently attending school.

The information on this survey will help the school plan for adequate facilities and personnel for the 2022-2023 school year. We thank you in advance for returning the form no later than March 1, 2022. Should you have any questions please contact our SIA/Registrar, Maria Giuliani.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

The reports for students who took the Grade 3-6 SEL Screener in October were sent home last week. Social- Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills and attitudes to: 

  • develop healthy identities
  • manage emotions
  • achieve personal and collective goals 
  • feel and show empathy for others 
  • establish and maintain relationships 
  • make responsible and caring decisions 

If you have additional questions regarding your child’s report, please contact their classroom teacher or their school counselor.  At our next PTA meeting on March 8th, Sarah D'Elia and Kim Negro will be providing additional information and resources to help families partner with their students around SEL.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

It was another great week, and we heard lots of positive comments on the less frigid weather. We enjoyed being outside more and more this week. 

We loved celebrating our School Counselors, Cameron Boster and Natasha Hill, throughout the week. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by ASCA, was created to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and highlight the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success. We are so grateful for each of them and all they do for our Shrevewood students!  

February is Black History Month, and the theme for 2022 is "Black Health and Wellness." The Library of Congress details how Carter G. Woodson successfully advocated for the creation of a Negro History Week in 1925 to raise awareness of African Americans’ contributions to civilization and the celebration was expanded to a month in 1976. Shrevewood students learn about many ways African Americans have shaped and experienced life in the US, this month and all year long. 

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our Tuesday PTA Meeting. Our guest speaker was Mary Smith.  She educated our PTA about anxiety in kids and how to help support your child process anxiety. If you would like learn more about her services, here is the link to access her website. Our next PTA meeting is March 8th at 7pm.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We hope everyone had a great week as we all returned to our normal schedule/routines. 

We wanted to remind everyone that you have a unique opportunity to help FCPS select important learning resources. These reviews do not happen frequently, so selected resources will be in classrooms for years and are a significant financial investment. 

Resources for elementary language arts are being reviewed through February 28. Interested individuals can review and provide feedback on digital resources online. Physical texts can be reviewed at the Willow Oaks Administrative Center in the lobby. Please ask about the books at the reception desk from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday-Friday. In-person review hours will be extended to 7 p.m. on February 3, 10, 17, and 24. You are encouraged to review both sets of resources for the full catalog of resources under review. Learn more about the elementary language arts resource review here.

Have a great weekend!

Positivity Project

What does it look like: Humble people do not show off or brag about what they have or their accomplishments. People with humility think less of themselves and more of others.
Why it matters: Humility is an important leadership quality that allows us to acknowledge our mistakes and be open to suggestions for improvement. True humility is a sign of strength; it is a quiet confidence in who you are.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We can hardly believe that we are already a week into the third quarter. This year is really flying. The saying that "the days are long but the years are short" continues to seem more relevant each week. 

It has been a wonderful week. We are so proud of our Owls as they continue to learn and grow. The smiles and excitement on Tuesday morning were amazing. 

Please continue to watch for communication from FCPS and Dr. Brabrand on the current FCPS safety protocols and layered prevention strategies. Maintaining student and staff safety, while keeping students learning in school is the main focus for everyone in FCPS. 

Best wishes for prosperity and good health to all who celebrate the Lunar New Year next week!

Have a fabulous weekend, 

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

 

Region 2 Outstanding New Principal Congratulations to our Principal, Joshua DeSmyter, on the announcement of being named FCPS Region 2 Outstanding New Principal!  Arrival & Dismissal Procedures In order to ensure safety for all students, please be sure to follow correct arrival and dismissal procedures.  Pick up and drop off locations for Kiss and Ride, walkers and bus are very important.

If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 30, 2022, please complete this form and return it no later than March 1, 2022. If any of your neighbors have children who will be eligible for Kindergarten, please share this information with them, as we are especially interested in reaching those Shrevewood families who do not have children currently attending school.

The information on this survey will help the school plan for adequate facilities and personnel for the 2022-2023 school year. We thank you in advance for returning the form no later than March 1, 2022. Should you have any questions please contact our SIA/Registrar, Maria Giuliani.

SR&R Reminder

Student Rights and Responsibilities The Student Rights and Responsibilities document explains expectations for student behavior and adult responses to enhance school safety and to create a fair, equitable and supportive school environment. We ask that you use this document as a framework for discussing these expectations with your child or teen so that he or she is well prepared for success when the school year begins. You will also find that this publication includes information that you may need throughout the school year, including contact numbers and other resources. The Student Rights and Responsibilities document and its translations are located under "SR&R Video and Related Documents" Parent/Guardians can acknowledge receipt of the SR&R in ParentVue in your child’s SIS account or sign the Parent Signature Sheet to acknowledge that you have received this document. If you haven’t already done so, please e-sign through ParentVue or return the signed signature sheet to us along with the Q2 report card envelope.

Cold Weather Safety

We often have to consider a number of factors related to student activity outdoors during cold weather. Common sense requires us to look beyond a specific temperature and consider factors such as wind chill, whether the ground is frozen or the sun is shining, how well the children are prepared to play outdoors (jackets, gloves, and hats), what activity the children are participating in, and the length of time to be spent outside.

It is the intention of the school to hold recess during cold spells and parents should have their children prepared to play outdoors (jackets, gloves, and hats) as this decision is made by the school each day. During a NWS Wind Chill Advisory, recess will be limited to no more than fifteen (15) minutes for any outdoor activity. During a NWS Wind Chill Warning, we will hold indoor recess.

You can find more information about Cold Weather Safety here.

When sending your children to school with their winter accessories, please remind them to keep their hats, gloves or other winter gear in their backpack or jacket pockets when returning inside so it will not be lost. If your child does misplace their jacket, hat, etc., it will be kept in the Lost & Found. Please contact the main office if you need to check the Lost & Found for missing clothing. 

Afterschool Environmental Club

Are you interested in the environment? The Shrevewood Environmental club might be for you!

Please notify us if your child will be absent or late to school.  We will have an automated “call-out” at approximately 11 a.m. for students who were absent without prior notification. If you receive that call, please contact our office the next day.
