Our Bridge to Kindergarten students had a great time with us this summer. See you soon, Bees!

Administrator Avenue

Dear Bee Families,

As you may have read last week, Dr. Reid sent information regarding teacher staffing in the county.  The teacher/staff shortage has had a major impact at HES and many other schools across the district.  97% of the district being staffed does not equate to 97% of an individual school nor does it include other vacancies beyond teachers that are crucial to the functioning of a school.

Since April, we have attended all the county job fairs, we have reached out to universities and other professional networks, and we have contacted retirees.  Those efforts have yielded great results and closed our staffing gaps significantly, however, we do still have a couple of vacancies. 

As we write this, we are still interviewing with the goal of having all vacancies filled. If we are unable to fill these positions by the first day of school, we are working to have long term subs who are certified. Currently, we have two Special Education teachers, 2nd grade Spanish Immersion teacher, classroom monitors and Administrative Assistant vacancies. Yes, our beloved Mrs. Goodwin is retiring and we will miss her dearly. Please feel free to let your social network know that we are hiring!

If you have been to our school lately you may have noticed additional security cameras. The Office of Safety and Security along with the Office of Facilities has installed several outdoor cameras in our continued efforts to ensure staff and student safety at HES.

We would like to thank all of our summer school staff for making learning fun and meaningful this summer. Also, our custodial team who continues to work long days to ensure our building is clean and ready for everyone to return in three weeks. 

Lastly, we are scheduling all of our Back to School events. Be on the lookout for grade-level play dates, the Welcome Back Bus Tour, and our Back to School Bash. We will also have an orientation for all new families on the day of our Back to School Bash.

As always, we are a team. Please let us know what questions you might have. 

 

Warmly,

Candace J. Hunstad         Elizabeth Baxter          Greg Brotemarkle

Dear Bee Families,

We hope you are enjoying your summer. We are missing our students. We have been busy around HES. Our custodial team is working hard and our building is looking great! We also started summer school last week and our hearts are filled with joy having our bees back in the building.

We have great news to share! Thank you to our families for advocating for increased safety measures around our school. The Office of Safety and Security and Facilities will be installing a fence around our playground to deter visitors from accessing our outside facilities during the school day. Also, due to your generosity and our PTA's generosity, we will be able to build a Pre-K and Special Needs playground on the other side of our basketball courts. The fencing should be completed by the fall and the smaller playground will be done by the spring.

Our renovation community committee made up of staff and parent members were able to have our first renovation meeting with FCPS design and construction. The committee was able to provide feedback on three possible designs. The next step is for our renovation project is for a design to be selected and a bid to be selected by a construction company. We will be breaking ground in the summer of 2024. We will continue to communicate more details as they become available.

Lastly, we are scheduling all of our Back to School events. Be on the lookout for grade-level play dates, the Welcome Back Bus Tour, and our Back to School Bash. We will also have an orientation for all new families on the day of our Back to School Bash.

As always, we are a team. Please let us know what questions you might have.

Emergency Food Resources for Families

If you are in need of assistance, please call Fairfax County’s Coordinated Services Planning (CSP) at 703-222-0880. The multilingual staff can assist you with any difficulties you are facing- including food, shelter, employment, financial assistance, health care, and other needs. The most up-to-date information about local resources for families is available on the FCPS website. Organizations providing assistance are organized by geographic area.

As we begin to look ahead to the 2022-23 school year, we encourage everyone to Be Wise, Immunize! Immunizations are required for public school entry and help keep children protected from many diseases. Many children missed their wellness check-ups and their recommended childhood immunizations due to the COVID-19 disruption. 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. 

Please keep in mind that the closer we get to school starting, the more difficult it will be to get an appointment that works with your schedule. If you wait till the end of the summer when appointments will be limited your child may not be able to start school on time due to a delayed immunization appointment.

Remember to request documentation of your child’s immunizations and bring that to HES as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact us at 703-326-3100.

WE DID IT….AGAIN!

Bee Parents and Families,

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 their 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 to make this a place where every Bee belongs!:

  • 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 Herndon Elementary family in need, please reach out to Mrs. Hunstad. Our HES 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.

 

Warmly,

Candace J. Hunstad           Elizabeth Baxter           Yaara Crane

Proud Principal                   Assistant Principal        Assistant Principal       

and all of our Herndon ES volunteers

This year would not have been the same without our Herndon ES award winning PTA supporting us!  First, we would like to thank our PTA board, President Sara Murphy,  VP of Volunteers Jenny Kimsey, VP of Membership and HES IA Martina Willis, Secretary Lee Biear, and Treasurer Tara Reddy for their ideas, outstanding leadership, generosity, and countless hours.  Thank you to all those who supported them.  They are all parents who volunteer their time for the school, our staff, and students. They put on our Spring and Fall Book Fairs, our HES 60th Anniversary party, teacher appreciation week, etc.

Thank you to ALL of the volunteers at Herndon ES!  They are parents, former parents, grandparents, middle, high school, and college students, and  community members. You help our bees keep buzzing!

We would especially like to thank one of our parents, Nicole Wickenheiser.  Nicole has been an extremely active PTA member, former board member, and parent volunteer for over 10 years.  She has worked tirelessly, and with her last son graduating from HES, she just finished up co-chairing the 6th grade celebration and put on the 6th grade talent show.  If there was a PTA event, Nicole was somehow involved!

Nicole, we will miss you and good luck with your future endeavors.  "Once a Bee, always a Bee"!

Complete Your Free and Reduced-Price Meal Applications This Summer

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. The extension of the no-cost meals benefit to all students is expected to expire at the end of this school year, meaning families must submit an application and be approved to be eligible for free and reduced price meals for the 2022-23 school year. 

Interested families are encouraged to submit the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application before the first day of the 2022-23 school year. The online application will be available later this summer and accessible via the FCPS homepage.

Students approved for Free and Reduced-Price Meals may qualify for additional benefits such as waived or reduced fees for instruments, uniforms, field trips, FCPS class fees, and Parktakes classes.

Dear Bee Family,

We 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 HES work to make critical safety upgrades to our buildings, 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. We have that support in place and encourage everyone to use them. Here are a few additional resources for you and your family. Your child may  also have questions and concerns after learning about this tragic news. The National Association of School Psychologists has a helpful resource (in multiple languages) for families and educators to support them when talking with students about school violence. If you or your child need additional support, please reach out to one of our clinical team members, Ms. Bryant, Ms. Correas, Mr. Falkey or Mrs. Wotherspoon.

Student Safety and Wellness

We stand together, as a HES community and in solidarity with the Robb Elementary School community. 

As always, we are a team. Please let us know what questions you might have. 

Warmly,

Candace J. Hunstad           Elizabeth Baxter             Yaara Crane

Dear Bee Families,

It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is almost here and that we are already planning for the 22-23 school year.  Each year our teachers work together to create classrooms built on the idea that students learn from each other’s strengths. This mindset is a driving force as we build heterogeneous classrooms that support each child’s learning needs.

Again this year, we ask for your input about the learning environment your child will learn best in next year. Please consider providing your input by May 27, 2022, so that the information can be processed before class building. 

Parent Input Class Placements 2022-2023 – English

Parent Input Class Placements 2022-2023 – Español

Please note that we do not take direct teacher requests. Instead, we ask that you describe the attributes that will support your child best. For example, do they enjoy higher structure, or do they thrive with more independent choices? Do they prefer a quieter learning environment, or do they work best in high-energy environments?

We have much to celebrate over the last couple of weeks! A special thank you to Ms. Bryant and Mr. Falkey for all of their hard work on our 25th Career Fair. It was one to remember and we are so thankful to the parents for participating and the PTA for providing food. We also held our Advanced Academics Local Level 4 Orientation. Thank you to all of the families who attended and thank you to Mrs. Perez and Mrs. Snyder for translating and Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Baker for an informative night.

Our community is so generous. We got a generous cash donation from Heritage Fellowship Church. We are so grateful for their generosity. The FCPS Foundation, the Town of Herndon, and the PTA have also given our students outrageous love. Due to their amazing gifts, we will be able to install a playground for our students who are in our Enhanced Autism classrooms and our Pre-Kindergarten students. We are feeling the love!

Lastly, we look forward to seeing you on Sunday, 1-3pm, as we celebrate our 60th anniversary! Dr. Brabrand and Mrs. Elaine Tholan are scheduled to attend. We will also officially open our new outdoor learning spaces. Make sure your bee comes to our celebration on Sunday in their new red 60th-anniversary t-shirt.

As always, we are a team. Please reach out with any questions or celebrations you may have.

See you at the party on Sunday!

Warmly,

Candace J. Hunstad           Elizabeth Baxter                  Yaara Crane

Proud Principal                    Assistant Principal               Assistant Principal       

Our 25th Annual Career Day was a HUGE success!  The kids loved it!  We would like to thank our counselors Ms. Bryant and Mr. Falkey who work extremely hard to make this happen for our students year after year.  Ms. Bryant has been doing this for the past 25 years!  Thank you to our participants for taking time out of their busy days to share their careers with us and our PTA, staff, and volunteers for all of their support.
