Terra Centre Families,

In support of our commitment to safety, FCPS will begin optional COVID-19 screening testing for students the week of November 8

Routine testing is a highly recommended strategy to reduce COVID-19 transmission and keep our schools safe. Following recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 10% of students who are not fully vaccinated and have parent/guardian consent will be randomly selected for weekly testing. 

Parent/guardian consent is required for students to be part of the testing pool. We will share more information about how to submit your child(ren)’s vaccination status and how to OPT-IN to testing soon.

Test results will be kept confidential. Parents/guardians will be able to review results through the secure vendor portal. Parents/guardians may select an option to share their child’s test results with FCPS. Sharing results with FCPS is optional.  More information about COVID-19 testing in FCPS can be found on the FCPS website.

Please scroll down for additional information and updates from our school and PTA.  PTA Raise Craze Spirit Week is next week and SCA Spirit Day is next Friday!  As a reminder, quarter 1 ends next week and there is a 2-hour early release for students next Friday, Oct. 29.  Dismissal is at 1:25 p.m.

Enjoy your weekend!

Thank you to our amazing PTA and 6th grade families for the awesome appreciation luncheon this week.  The subs, sides, and treats were delicious!  Mask Up!

Masks are an essential tool in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting those unable to be vaccinated. Research shows proper masking is the most effective mitigation strategy to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in schools where social distancing may not be possible and vaccination may not be available for all. Masking is adequate to prevent transmission in situations with less than three feet of social distance and on full-capacity buses.

Therefore, masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, inside FCPS buildings and on buses.

Wearing a Mask Correctly:  Watch a video about student procedures for how to put on and take off a face covering

 

A message from the SCA (Student Council Association) Leadership Team:   October Spirit Day

Dress as your favorite book character! It could be a fairytale or fantasy- just have fun with it! You can bring the book to show your idea! Remember this is not to celebrate Halloween, it is to celebrate books. Please dress appropriately for school. Thank you and have fun!

 

Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid 

Last week, students brought home Student-Parent Survey forms for Federal Impact Aid.  Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an additional $3 million in grants each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County public schools and centers.

  • For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's school.
  • If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3.
  • All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by November 5.
  • All results are CONFIDENTIAL.

For more information, please check out the 2021 FCPS Impact Aid Video

Terra Centre Families,

As we shared earlier this year, our theme is “Be the Difference,” and our staff works hard every day to make a difference in the lives of our students!  Ms. Jewell, our Advanced Academics Resource Teacher, recently made a difference by submitting a grant proposal to the Ciena Teacher Grant program.  The Ciena Grants are established to support teachers with the implementation of innovative and engaging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs, activities, and technology to promote learning and digital equality. 

Ms. Jewell was awarded funds to purchase Bee-Bots for our Thinking Lab!  A Bee-Bot is an exciting robot designed specifically for use by children. This easy-to-operate and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, and problem-solving!  Scroll down to see pictures of some of our students using Bee-Bots in our Thinking Lab!

Have a great weekend!

Terra Centre Families,

Rain didn’t stop our Walk to School Day this week!  We had a great turnout!  Thank you to our PTA for organizing this for our students and thank to our families for participating.  Check out some of the pictures below.

We want to give a big shout out to one of our former TC Tigers, Alexandra Trogus, who completed her Eagle Scout Project at Terra Centre last weekend.  She planned, organized, raised funds, and completed a sensory art and activity area on our blacktop by Door 5.  Students have loved interacting with the engaging designs this week!  If you haven’t seen it yet, stop by or check out some of the pictures below.  Thank you to our PTA for supporting this project!

Terra Centre Families,

Terra Centre staff and students proved once again how resilient we are during an unexpected power outage this week!  It was business as usual with creative solutions and flexibility.  Check out some of the pictures below!

Please check your child’s backpack for two Kiss & Ride car tags per family that were sent home this week.  When using Kiss & Ride, the car tag needs to be hung on the passenger side sun visor (flipped down) so that Kiss & Ride staff can easily see the last name, even during inclement weather. We suggest using a rubber band or clip to attach the sign to your car visor. If you have any questions or need additional tags, please contact Sandra Ammar and Valerie Sollers in the main office:  saammar@fcps.edu  vasollers@fcps.edu.

Terra Centre Families,

In 2014, Fairfax County Public Schools adopted the Portrait of a Graduate to answer this question: What are the skills necessary for success for all children in this rapidly changing, increasingly diverse, and interconnected world? Portrait of a Graduate moves FCPS students and staff members to look beyond the high-stakes testing environment and to help our students develop skills so they can be successful in the workforce of the future.

 The Portrait of a Graduate attributes are:

  • Communicator
  • Collaborator
  • Ethical and Global Citizen
  • Creative and Critical Thinker
  • Goal-Directed and Resilient Individual

Promoting these skills enhances student success in Preschool – 12th Grade and beyond.  Scroll down to see some Terra Centre 4th graders presenting their work in the area of Ethical and Global Citizenship. 

Enjoy the fall weather this weekend!

StreamIN/CheckIN is FCPS’ solution for providing meaningful instructional support to students who are paused, quarantined, or isolated due to COVID-19. These students may be out of school for up to two weeks, and we are committed to supporting them. No later than Day 3 of a student’s COVID-related absence, schools will provide student supports that include: 

  • Livestreaming (StreamIN) of direct instruction via Zoom or Google Meet. Teachers may choose to record lessons instead of livestreaming. This is NOT concurrent or hybrid learning. The remote student’s camera and audio will be off, but they will be able to watch and listen. 
  • Asynchronous access to class assignments.
  • Interactive check-ins with teachers every other school day for academic and social-emotional support. Students will also have weekly check-ins with an assigned staff member.

Terra Centre Families,

Health and safety remain our top priority at Terra Centre.  Fairfax County Public Schools and Fairfax County Health Department guidance and protocols are updated frequently.  Yesterday, the Fairfax County Health Department announced a change in their communication process for students waiting for COVID-19 contact interviews. You may read about these changes on the FCHD website.  

Be sure to review the FCHD FAQs for parents of school-aged children.  These FAQs answer many common questions about health department communication, sibling/household close contacts, and quarantine timeframes.  We appreciate the continued partnership between FCPS and the FCHD.  Scroll down for FCHD locations and contact information.

The following links provide additional information on health and safety:

Community Flier Distribution

Each year schools invite non-profit organizations that benefit children to submit fliers for distribution to our school community. Our fall community flier distribution date is Thursday, September 30. If you would like to send a flier out to our school community, please submit a copy to our front office for approval by Thursday, September 16, and ensure the following is included on the flier: “This event (or activity) is sponsored by the (name of organization) and is operated independently of the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, and Terra Centre Elementary School.”  Additionally, make sure the sponsor, purpose, and designated use of the funds is stated on the flier.  Details about quantities will be shared once the flier is approved.

ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP) ELEMENTARY CONTINUUM OF SERVICES 

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is committed to challenging all students through talent development and differentiated instruction to meet the needs of advanced learners. 

FCPS offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in Grades K-12. The continuum of services approach allows for a focus on matching services rather than labeling students. Students have:

  • Multiple entry points for deeper learning opportunities in specific areas of need as they develop.
  • A cluster group of students with similar academic needs to continue growing in their learning.

Teachers, administrators, and Advanced Academic Resource Teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of service at the elementary level: 

Tier 1 Access to AAP Curriculum and Strategies Grades K-6 (Level I) 

All students have opportunities to think critically, reason, and problem-solve. 

  • All teachers use critical and creative thinking strategies in their lessons
  • Classroom teachers provide opportunities using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework a minimum of once per quarter.

Because Level I services are for all FCPS students, there is not a screening process.

Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength Grades K-6 (Level II) 

Some students are strong in one or more subject areas. Classroom teachers may adjust instruction for students in these areas by:

  • Providing different assignments and resources in those subjects
  • Grouping students by their strengths, interests, and readiness
  • Classroom teachers provide additional challenges using materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework.

Level II Services are re-evaluated each year.

Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs Grades 3-6 (Level III) 

Some students have advanced academic abilities in multiple subject areas. They need part-time AAP services. 

  • Students work with students that have similar academic needs through weekly pull-out classes or weekly co-taught lessons with the AART and classroom teacher.
  • Teachers provide frequent opportunities to use materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, social studies, and/or mathematics.

Level III services continue through Grade 6. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

Full-Time Advanced Academic Programs Grades 3-8 (Level IV) 

Some advanced learners need a full-time advanced academic program with differentiated instruction in all four core content areas (Language Arts, mathematics, social studies, and science). 

Students eligible for full-time AAP services are cluster grouped on a full-time basis and receive:

  • Full-time use of materials from the AAP Curriculum Framework in Language Arts, science, and social studies curriculum, and
  • Mathematics curriculum with depth and complexity that is at least one year above grade level.

Level IV services continue through Grade 8. Students do not need to be evaluated each year.

Screening for Levels II-IV

Multiple criteria are reviewed holistically to determine eligibility for all FCPS advanced academic services. Committees consider student work from opportunities with AAP lessons, examples of student reasoning or gifted behaviors from class discussions and activities, progress reports, achievement and ability scores, and parent input. Committees consider whether students have access to a group of students with similar academic needs to support academic conversations and growth in the classroom.

Eligibility decisions for Level II and Level III services are made by a committee at the local school

Screening for Level II and Level III services is ongoing throughout the school year. To refer for Level II or III services, submit the AAP School-Based Referral Form to the AART and the local school.

Eligibility decisions for full-time Level IV services are made by the countywide central selection committee.

Screening for Level IV services occurs during specific screening cycles:  

  • Fall screening is available for students who are new to FCPS since January.
    • Fall referrals are due October 7.
  • Spring screening is available for any Grade 2-7 FCPS-enrolled student 
    • The referral window is from the first day of school - December 15.

Referral forms for Levels II-IV are found at https://www.fcps.edu/node/38893

For more information, please visit the AAP website at: https://www.fcps.edu/registration/advanced-academics-identification-and-placement/current-fcps-students.  

Ability Testing

FCPS uses ability testing as one part of the holistic screening process for Levels II-IV services. Test scores are not weighted or prioritized in the holistic screening process.  

  • All students in Grade 1 take the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT).
  • All students in Grade 2 take the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT). 
  • NNAT and/or CogAT may be administered to students in Grades 3-6 who do not have an ability test score during the regularly scheduled testing windows.  

Parents or guardians may request a one-time retest in grades 3-6 during the fall testing windows. Please contact the school testing coordinator, Teresa Lewis  TMLewis@fcps.edu, no later than September 15 to request a retake of the CogAT or no later than October 15 for a retake of the NNAT.

Please do not wait for test scores before submitting a referral for your student in Grades 2-7 as there will be no referrals for Level IV screening accepted past the deadline.

Elementary Parent Information Meetings

A Terra Centre parent information meeting will be held virtually on September 27 at 5:00 pm.  If you would like to attend, please complete the Zoom Link Request Form by 9/24.  The AART, Melanie Jewell MCJewell@fcps.edu, will provide information about levels of service and examples at Terra Centre, explain the screening processes, and answer questions about part-time school-based and full-time Level IV services. A specific Level IV referral information meeting will be held virtually on October 11 at 5:00 pm.

Young Scholars

FCPS developed the Young Scholars Model to help identify students from historically underrepresented populations for AAP services. The model provides additional opportunity to nurture talent and build confidence so that students can meet their potential. 

Twice-Exceptional (2e)

Some gifted students also have learning disabilities. These twice-exceptional, or “2e” students need strengths-based instruction. Their learning challenges also must be supported. FCPS has created a 2e handbook to help schools and families understand how to identify and serve 2e students. You can find these resources by going to www.fcps.edu and searching “2e.”

Terra Centre Updates 9-11-21

Terra Centre Families,

Today marks the 20-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, and United Airlines Flight 93.  The United States Congress designated September 11th as “Patriot Day'' to remember and honor those whose lives were lost and those who took action to help. 

Yesterday, Terra Centre and all FCPS schools had a special moment of silence to commemorate and acknowledge the loss of life, the heroism of our first responders, and the resilience of our country.  The September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is a chance to reflect and to act in service to others as a way of honoring those who were injured or killed in the terrorist attacks. 

Please scroll down for important information and upcoming dates for our school and community.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism. To mark this day, Thursday, September 16 is noted as a religious/cultural observance date on the FCPS calendar. We will also not schedule events on the evening of September 15.

The FCPS 2021-22 School Year Calendar ensures students do not have to make choices between honoring their cultural or religious beliefs and missing tests or school activities. Tests, quizzes, field trips, graduation, homecoming, or FCPS-scheduled athletic events cannot be scheduled on any religious and cultural observances. Tests and quizzes will be given prior to any of the 15 days so that students will not be expected to study on these days.

Tutoring Opportunity for Terra Centre Students

A message from Hana Choi, Center Manager with GIVE Youth (Growth and Inspiration through Volunteering and Education Burke Centre burke.centre@giveyouth.org

GIVE Tutoring is a student run non-profit organization that provides free tutoring for elementary school students. Students are tutored by high school volunteers on the weekends during the school year. We have 20+ locations in the Northern Virginia area, including one at Burke Centre Library.

Each session is roughly 2 hours long with a short break in between. Last year we conducted tutoring virtually and now are proceeding with in-person sessions with COVID-19 precautions in place which includes: requiring masks regardless of vaccination status, socially distancing, sanitization, and monitoring of all students and tutors in addition to any future recommendations from the CDC.

We would like to extend the opportunity to students at Terra Centre Elementary School as a way to earn enrichment through this program. Parents and guardians may apply at this link and more information is available on our website (giveyouth.org) or through email at directors@giveyouth.org. Currently a date has not been yet finalized for the fall session however, any finalized information will be sent out to tutors and students.

“All we have is time. Let’s use it for positive change.”  Jessica Sanders

 

Terra Centre Families,

It’s hard to believe tomorrow is September 1st!  We’ve had a very successful school opening.  Our theme this year is “Be the Difference.” Our staff members reflected on how we can create positive change using empathy, kindness, equality, and environmental awareness.  Scroll all the way down and check out the pictures of our staff kick-off!

Our students and staff have done an amazing job these first two weeks of school!  We are learning about each other, building relationships, keeping kids safe, learning routines and expectations, and having fun!  Scroll down to check out some of the pictures below!

Please be sure to read through all of the items below.  There's a lot of important information including upcoming dates and holidays, health and safety protocols, student attendance, and more!

Finally, we are anticipating some robust weather the next couple of days!  Please anticipate delays and be patient if you choose to use Kiss & Ride.  Changes to dismissal should be entered in the Pick-Up Patrol (PUP) App by 2:00 p.m.  Stay safe!

Safety is our number one priority at school. At the beginning of the year, we spend extra time learning safety drills and practicing procedures.  A fire evacuation plan and tornado map are posted in each room.

  • Bus drills are conducted twice a year in the first 30 instructional days of each semester to teach safety rules to bus riders.
  • Fire drills are conducted twice during the first 20 days of school and monthly thereafter.
  • Lockdown drills are conducted twice a year, once during the first 20 days of school and once after the first 60 days of school, to practice what would happen if a threat entered the school building.
  • A tornado drill is conducted once a year in March. Teachers review safety procedures to follow in the event of a tornado.
FCPS Emergency Planning and Crisis Response Terms

Fairfax County Public Schools' main goal is to keep students and staff safe at school. For more information on safety planning and crisis response terms, please visit:  FCPS Emergency Planning and Crisis Response.

A Message from our School Counselors:

Jackye Toth                               Ashley Mangan

Hello from Shannon Nieves, GMU School Counseling Intern!

I am Shannon Nieves, graduate student, and School Counseling Intern at Terra Centre Elementary school. I will be working with Mrs. Jacquelyn Toth this fall and hopefully getting to know some of your children.  I work full time at Northern Virginia Community College in Sterling, Virginia. I will be at TC one day a week for the next semester. In that time, I am hoping to learn all I can about how to help young children succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. I’ve worked at NOVA for the past 14 years and while I have enjoyed most every minute of my work as a College Readiness Counselor, I am ready to make the transition from higher education to K-12.

I have three young children of my own. Maison (8), Paige (5) and Harrison (3) so there is never a dull moment. My favorite way to de-stress from school, work and kids is to practice Baptiste Power Yoga! You can usually find me on my mat most days and when I am not there, I am chauffeuring children around, working at my day job or cooking (which is one of my passions, but only because I love to eat) or cleaning, which I could live without, but such is life.

Thanks for letting me share and I look forward to meeting some of you,

Shannon Nieves, MEd
