Career Day Message from Ms. Bryant to Parents

Hello Herndon Parents and Friends:
Mr. Falkey and I are in the process of planning our 22nd Virtual Career Day! We always have parent participation in our annual event and this year is no exception! If you are interested in creating a short video explaining your career path, education requirements and highlight the fun and excitement you experience 😊 Please contact Ms. Bryant at tabryant@fcps.edu /703-326-3117.  We also need a still photo of you with a solid background so our creative genius counselor (Mr. Falkey) can ‘place’ you in the gym…

The final date for submitting videos is April 19th.  We look forward to hearing from MANY of you – students are always so excited to see their parents participate.  It’s a great event!!

AAP Spring Newsletter

All Herndon students will be screened for school-based Level II and III services in May. Please check out the AAP Spring Newsletter on our Herndon Elementary School website homepage for more information.

PTA News... PTA Spring Book Fair April 11-14

Our Spring Book Fair is coming! Comb through your personal library and think about what you might be missing to prepare for a bright summer.  From this Sunday, April 11 to Wednesday, April 14, you will be able to purchase books from the link available on our website through R.E.A.D.  R.E.A.D.'s Book Bus will then deliver your order to Herndon Elementary on Monday, April 19 during School Picture Day (or you can choose to have them shipped to your home).  One of the reasons we like to host our PTA Book Fair through R.E.A.D. is that not only will 20% of revenue from every book you buy at the book fair go back to the Herndon Elementary PTA, the remaining revenue will be used to buy a new, quality, culturally relevant book for the children R.E.A.D. serves in the NoVA area. Spread the love of learning this Spring across our area and check out some books at https://herndonespta.com/events/bookfair/.

Chess Bee Academy Starts this Thursday

WE JUST NEED A FEW MORE PARTICIPANTS, and the first meeting will be THIS Thursday, April 8 from 8:15-9:15 AM. Our Chess Bee Academy Coordinator is willing to take 1st graders this session if they are familiar with chess and comfortable being in an online class. To register or get more info, visit https://herndonespta.com/clubs/chess-academy/. If you have any questions, let our VP of Volunteers Jenny know by emailing herndonPTAvolunteers@gmail.com.

New PTA Secretary Still Needed

As you may have seen in our YouTube recording of the last PTA Meeting, we are still looking  for a new Secretary for next year's PTA Board!  If you are familiar with social media, like spreading news and sharing fun, and can write up announcements, then let our President Sara Murphy know at herndonPTApresident@gmail.com.  The role is not that hard but is crucial to keeping our PTA buzzing!  You will be supported and helped by the past Secretary and the whole Board. Don't hesitate to let us know if you're interested.

Allergy Season and COVID-19 Protocols (All Grades)

Allergy season has arrived.  If your child suffers from seasonal allergies, parents must provide/update their child’s Health Information Form and send to HES clinic health aide, Mercy Caloyannides mqcaloyannid@fcps.edu. Several of the COVID-19 symptoms are also seasonal allergy symptoms and identifying your child’s known seasonal allergy symptoms will help us ensure the continued health and wellness of our students and staff. If your child displays any unexplained or unidentified symptoms listed here, your child will be sent to the Care Room and will be sent home. It will be your responsibility to contact your pediatrician to complete a Sick Student Notification form prior to their reentry to CRES.

Thank you for your diligence screening your child each morning to ensure they are 100% well before sending them to school.  If they are not well, please keep them virtual for the safety of their classmates and staff members.  They will be able to log in and receive the same instruction as they would have in-person.

 

Temporada de Alergias y Protocolos de COVID-19 (Todos los Grados)

Si su hijo sufre de alergias estacionales, los padres deben proporcionar/actualizar el Formulario de Información de Salud de su hijo y enviarlo a la asistente de salud de la clínica HES, Mercy Caloyannides mqcaloyannid@fcps.edu.. Varios de los síntomas de COVID-19 también son síntomas de alergia estacional e identificar los síntomas conocidos de alergia estacional de su hijo nos ayudará a garantizar la salud y el bienestar continuos de nuestros alumnos y personal. Si su hijo muestra algún síntoma inexplicable o no identificado nombrado aquí, se enviará a su hijo a la Sala de Cuidados y se lo enviará a casa. Será su responsabilidad comunicarse con su pediatra para completar un Formulario de Notificación de Alumno Enfermo antes de su reingreso a CRES.

Gracias por su diligencia examinando a su hijo cada mañana para asegurarse de que esté 100% bien antes de enviarlo a la escuela.

PTA News... SAVE THE DATE!  

Join us on our YouTube Channel on March 25 for our next Virtual General PTA Meeting at 7:00 pm.  We will post more information on the agenda and speakers as we get closer to the date on our website at https://herndonespta.com/pta-meeting/

Virtual Science Assembly on April 23

We had such a great response from Jive in the Hive that we've been able to schedule a Virtual Science Assembly from MadScience on April 23.  So save the date and look for more details as we get closer!  MadScience provides interactive shows that your student will be able to see right from home as they follow experiments, participate in lab shenanigans, and learn more about science all around them.  You can learn more about what your kids will experience at https://dc.madscience.org/virtual-assemblies.aspx. We can't wait!

Chess Club: Reassemble!

Does your child miss Chess Club?  We are hoping to offer another round in April, but we need at least 6 students to participate.  If your child has an interest in meeting before school, let our VP of Volunteers Jenny know by emailing herndonPTAvolunteers@gmail.com.  

Virtual Field Trips

As we continue to research exciting virtual field trips your student may take, we came across two that you can do on your own with your child that will enhance their learning this year: 

The Kennedy Center has a wide variety of options at https://www.kennedy-center.org/virtualfieldtrips.  From concerts specifically geared toward young people to stories with instruments to cultural appreciation, you will find something to solidify your child's interest and exposure to the arts. Take a look and cuddle up together!

Frying Pan Park's new “Field Trips for All” programs offer parents a unique opportunity to supplement their child’s science learning with real outdoor experiences and application of the concepts required in the Virginia standards of learning. Topics include but are not limited to life cycles (a great time since the park is experiencing a baby boom) and life in historic Virginia. This program is geared by grade level to provide enrichment to all learners including homeschool. Registration is limited to allow for social distancing. Groups of more than 8 should consider booking a field trip directly with a park by visiting the park’s web site. All attendees, parents and students, must register to control group size. See topics and register here: https://bit.ly/30GdYN6.
