Hello Shrevewood Families,
Thank you to all of our families who came to support our students at the Strings concert last night! Kudos to Mr. Hodge for a wonderful concert and to all of the students who performed.
Our 2nd grade students enjoyed a visit from a couple of therapy dogs yesterday. During their persuasive writing unit in the spring, they presented us with a number of letters requesting the dogs visit our school. Their persuasive skills worked like a charm and we are so glad we were able to make it happen for them!
Next week on June 9th, we will have our Field Day and our students are really looking forward to it. If you can volunteer, please fill out this Google Form. Thank you for your support!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Joshua DeSmyter, Principal
Katie Vandawalker, Assistant Principal💻FCPS Device Collection💻

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school. Medication left in the health room after that time will be destroyed. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. If your student will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, the existing medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program, but you will need to pick up the medication on the last day of school and deliver the medication and completed forms to the summer learning site on the first day of the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).Shrevewood Supply Lists 2023

In collaboration with the FCPS Family Resource Center, the Math Office is offering a free webinar on Thursday, June 8, 2023, from 7-8 p.m. This webinar is designed to provide families of students currently in grades K-6 with resources to continue their math learning over the summer utilizing ST Math. During this session participants will learn how to log on and navigate the tool, discuss how students can work more independently, and how families can support their students.
Register for the ST Math webinar.Reminder about Cell Phone Use
In elementary school, kindergarten-sixth grade students' phones must be silenced and in backpacks for the duration of the school day. Watches that serve a dual purpose (e.g., smart watch) may be worn; however, phone features (e.g., texting, Internet, calls, etc.) are to be off during the school day. Students are prohibited from using phones, smart watches, tablets, and other mobile devices in restrooms, the cafeteria, and at recess unless there is a true emergency.
