Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application before the first day of the 22-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.

Principal's Message

Dear Shrevewood Family,

Thank you to all of the families who attended our Kindergarten playdate this week. We look forward to welcoming all of our kindergarteners to the Shrevewood family in August. There are a couple of more playdates as well as Open House in the coming weeks which will provide your children with an opportunity to build relationships with students and staff.

Thank you to all of those who have already reached out about being a substitute here at Shrevewood. It is always powerful to see the support that we have from our community. We continue to work towards building our bank of at least 10 substitutes that are ready to support our school from day one. If you, or any of your extended family members, are interested in supporting these efforts and helping us to ensure that we have a proactive start to the school year, please email me at [email protected] We always appreciate and value our community's support.

Sincerely,

Joshua DeSmyter & Katie Vandawalker

Principal's Message

Dear Shrevewood Family,

We hope everyone is having a fun summer with family and friends. We have been excited to welcome around 70 students this summer for our Bridge to Kindergarten and SOAR programs here at Shrevewood. It has been a joy to see some of our newest as well as returning Wise Owls building relationships with teachers and each other.

While a number of schools in the county are still searching to find highly qualified candidates to fill their instructional vacancies, we are thrilled to share that we are currently fully staffed! As we prepare to successfully transition for the upcoming school year, it is important for our community to know that it was a challenge to find substitutes when our teachers were out of the building. While we know that FCPS is continuing to address the substitute shortage, Katie and I have proactively developed a plan for Shrevewood that would bring in members of our community as substitute teachers. For this plan to work, we need your help!

Our goal is to have a bank of at least 10 substitutes that are ready to support our school from our community from day one. This will ensure that we are not pulling resource teachers and/or specialists to cover classes. By doing this, we are providing the support needed to ensure that all of our staff are able to focus on their area of expertise in order to support your students with the highest level of excellence that we know they deserve! If you, or any of your extended family members, are interested in supporting these efforts and helping us to ensure that we have a proactive start to the school year, please email me at [email protected] We always appreciate and value our community's support.

Sincerely,

Joshua DeSmyter & Katie Vandawalker

Principal's Message

Dear Shrevewood Families,

WE DID IT….AGAIN!

We would like to take this space to thank you for yet another incredibly challenging and immensely fulfilling school year. TOGETHER, we have navigated masks, distancing, vaccinations, quarantines, isolation, contact tracing, COVID notifications and massive sub shortages…all the while, TOGETHER we smiled, taught, nurtured, laughed, loved and LEARNED. Your children grew in more ways than just growing out of their shoes and clothes. They grew in their friendships and in navigating social situations. They grew as readers and mathematicians. They grew interests in novel subject areas. They grew as inquirers and global citizens. They grew in kindness and maybe most of all, in their resilience to handle all that this world gives them.

We ask as we move into summer that you do a couple of things to continue the support of your child's needs and progress...

  • Keep a close eye on your child’s emotional needs. The impacts of COVID are still revealing themselves and our students’ emotional well-being remains our top concern and priority.
  • Please provide lots and lots of ways and places where your child can pick up something to read. Please don’t make it a chore-make it fun with books, magazines, brochures, etc.. If you need more books for the summer, please reach out.
  • Please look out for one another and when one of our “neighbors” is in need, reach out. We pride ourselves in the family-like community we share and we will all go through times when need each other. If you know of a Shrevewood family in need, please reach out to Mr. DeSmyter. Our Shrevewood family can and will mobilize very quickly when needs arise.

For your continued grace and compassion and partnership, we are thankful. Have a wonderful, relaxing and fun summer.

TOGETHER,

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Saying Goodbye

Dear Shrevewood Community,

It is the time of year that we are focused on endings and beginnings.  We are ending the school year and looking forward to the beginning of summer.  Some endings are much harder for us, especially when they involve saying goodbye to some of our wonderful Shrevewood staff members.  It is with mixed feelings of sadness and affection that we bid a fond farewell to the following Shrevewood staff members:

  • Candace Crow, Kindergarten Teacher
  • Katlyn Strickland, First Grade
  • Grace Park, First Grade
  • Rachel Murphy, Fourth Grade
  • Dawn Barnes, Fifth Grade
  • Jessica Carroll, Sixth Grade
  • Nala Chehade, ESOL Teacher
  • Jessica Phelps, Special Education Teacher
  • Emma Mutascio, Special Education Teacher
  • Jennifer Crotts, Special Education Teacher
  • Natasha Hill, Counselor
  • Colleen Wenzel, Librarian
  • Ali Moulton, Speech

As the summer approaches, we could still have staffing changes. We will continue update the community of any changes. We are already almost fully staffed for next school year. We will introduce the new staff members with you later this summer.

Goodbyes are not forever.

Goodbyes are not the end.

They simply mean I’ll miss you

Until we meet again!

~Author Unknown

With warm regards and fond memories,

Joshua DeSmyter, Principal &

Susie Lilburn, Assistant Principal

Thank you to all the volunteers who supported Field Day today. It was so fun to visit all the stations and enjoy a fun-filled, student-centered event.

Dear Shrevewood Families,

We hope everyone had a restful long weekend and is excited for the last two weeks of school! Last week we enjoyed a spirit week that included hat day, crazy hair day and much more.

Dear Shrevewood Community,

I share in your grief, fear, and frustration about the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. These events impact us all in personal ways. One thing we all have in common is our condemnation of these senseless acts of violence. 

Another thing we have in common is our commitment to keeping our schools, and the students and employees within them, safe. FCPS and Shrevewood work together to make critical safety upgrades to our buildings. We plan and practice day-to-day safety and security measures, and respond swiftly to any concern or possible event. 

We also know that our students need care, support, and understanding as they learn about acts of gun violence. Many students came to school today apprehensive and concerned about yesterday’s tragedy. Our classroom teachers as well as counseling team were great supports and reassured our students that Shrevewood is a safe place. There are other resources listed below, and we encourage everyone to use them.

Gun Violence Prevention

Student Safety and Wellness

Thank you so much to the parents that reached out with notes of support for our Shrevewood staff and students. We stand together, as the Shrevewood community, and in solidarity with the Robb Elementary School community. We’ll continue to work together to make Shrevewood a safe place for everyone.

Sincerely,

Joshua DeSmyter

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.

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

SOL Schedule
