Adversity and Trauma in Childhood: Building Resilient Communities

In the past couple of decades, there has been an explosion of new understanding about how and why adversity and trauma can reliably predict risks for mental, physical, behavioral health and productivity in the population.

The Region winners will be the finalists for the overall Fairfax County Public Schools Outstanding Teacher Award and Outstanding Support Staff Award.

This serves as your official withdrawal notification document and will ensure that student records are prepared and are ready to be sent to the new school. We ask that you include the name of the new school as well as your new address to forward any items left after your move.

  SCA Jersey Spirit Day

Friday, January 31, is the SCA Jersey Spirit Day. Everyone is encouraged to wear your favorite jersey.

 

  SCA Canned Food Drive

Beginning January 31 through February 28, the SCA will be sponsoring our annual canned food drive. This year’s drive will kick-off on Friday, January 31. Vote for your favorite team in the Super Bowl by bringing in a non-perishable item and placing it in your favorite team’s box in the front lobby. Use only one item of food to vote and take the rest to your classroom.

The SCA is encouraging all the students at Hayfield Elementary to bring in all kinds of non-perishable items. No breakable items please. Items of need: sugar, oil, cereal, flour, ketchup, mayonnaise, salad dressing, jelly, coffee, peanut butter, diapers (sizes 4-6), laundry supplies, dish washing detergent, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene supplies, and toilet paper. Parents talk with your students about the importance of helping others less fortunate than ourselves.

The SCA appreciates your donations and support with our canned food drive. The less fortunate families of our area will definitely benefit from your generosity.

 

  Many Thanks for the Angel Tree Donations

 The SCA would like to thank the Hayfield Elementary community for your generosity during this holiday season. Our Angel Tree was decorated by so many children, parents, and friends from our community with an abundance of hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, and toys. This holiday season, we collected many boxes full of hats, scarves, and gloves which were delivered to Koinonia. We also collected several boxes of toys which were delivered to Toys for Tots prior to the holidays.

Thank you for all your kindness. Many children are warmer and had a merrier holiday season because of you!

School Drop-off Times

For safety and security reasons, students should arrive no earlier than 8:20 a.m. each day. Kiss-and-Ride drop off is from 8:20-8:35 a.m. each morning with pickup in the afternoon beginning at 3:20 p.m. The school is not staffed and cannot provide before or after school student supervision. If a student arrives at or after 8:35 a.m., an adult MUST park and walk the student into the office and sign them in. For the first week of January (Jan 6-10) school staff will be at the Kiss-and-Ride lane at 8:35 a.m. to ensure parents are walking their child(ren) into the school and signing them in. Kiss-and-Ride students should be dropped off in the designated lane only. At no time should any student be dropped off on the side of the building. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.

 

Visitor Check-In

We require all visitors to Hayfield Elementary School to sign-in and show identification. Please be sure that you bring your driver’s license or identification card in order to sign into the school. Safety regulations prohibit us from allowing access without identification.

 

Our Winter Break is.... December 23, 2019 - January 3, 2020

The school and office will be closed during this time. Students are to return to school on Monday, January 6, 2020. We wish you and your family a happy holiday.

Our Winter Break is.... December 23, 2019 - January 3, 2020

The school and office will be closed during this time. Students are expected back in school on Monday, January 6.

 

Attendance and Holiday Vacation

We are quickly approaching holiday vacations.  Please remember that an extended vacation is an unexcused absence.  Also, please remember that if a student is absent for more than 15 consecutive days they must be withdrawn from school.  This is a required law in the state of Virginia.  When parents know that their students must be out for a specific period (more than a day), they can access and submit a prearranged absence form. This must be done at least three to five days in advance of the absence. This gives administrators and teachers time to consider the work, tests, and projects the student may need to turn in on the student’s return to school. Parents should avoid end-of-semester or end-of-course exam periods; state testing periods; etc., when making plans. Please make every effort to arrange travel during school breaks.

 

Attendance Reminders

It’s never too early to start encouraging regular school attendance. Nationwide data shows that starting in Kindergarten, missing 10% (about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read and by 6th grade, absenteeism is one of the three signs that a student may drop out of high school.  

FCPS expects students to be in school and follow their assigned schedules unless their absence is excused due to:

  • Illness
  • a death in the family
  • a medical or dental appointment/ procedure
  • military event
  • or religious obligations. 

FCPS regulation states:

“Parents should notify the school prior to, or at the start of, the school day when their child will be absent. When a student has been absent from school for any reason other than for a school sponsored activity, and the parents have not previously contacted the school, the parent must send written or electronic communication citing the reason(s) for the absence to the principal or designee no later than three days following the student’s return to school.”

A reminder that a notification to the school that your child will be absent does not automatically mean the absence is excused. If you call the school to report your child absent and the reason is unexcused, you will still receive an automated phone call and email when your student’s unexcused absences reach five per state law.

Holiday Donations – Can You Help?

As the holiday season approaches, we are seeking ways to support our Hayfield Hawks in need. Many of you have inquired about how your family can help out by making donations. For this holiday season, we are collecting gift cards to grocery stores or “all-purpose stores” (ex: Target, Wal-Mart, Giant, Safeway, Shopper etc.) to help lighten the burden for some of our families. If you are able, please bring a gift card of any amount (with the amount noted on the card) to Hayfield and we will ensure that it is gifted to a family in need.

Please send the gift cards in an envelope addressed to the counselors or social worker, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Lee or Ms. Cann. Your student can give the envelope to his/her classroom teacher to be sent down to the main office in the morning. We will start collecting the gifts cards now and will continue to collect through December 16th, 2019.

We are so lucky to have such an amazing and supportive Hayfield family and we truly appreciate any donation that you can contribute.

Thank you so much and we wish you Happy Holidays!

 

Shutterfly Storefront

Introducing a great way to shop that also gives back. Create unique photo gifts and personalized school gear through our custom storefront and Shutterfly will donate 8% of all purchases to Hayfield Elementary. Start shopping today at: HayfieldElementary.ShutterflyStorefront.com.

 

Lost and Found

Please have your children check for any missing items before dismissal on December 12. All lost and found items not picked up by December 12 will be donated to charity.

Y-Tie Announcement

We have stocking stuffers for your family!  Y-Ties are great for keeping those shoelaces in check and avoiding possible accidents from dangling laces. We have many colors for $3.00 a pair. We also have some brown or black boot laces which are $6.00 a pair. Let your child pick their favorite or make arrangements to pick up a pair without them knowing by contacting Ruth Drickey at 703-924-4532 or by email at RIDrickey@fcps.edu.  Cash or check payable to Hayfield Elementary. 

  Ornament Announcement

Hayfield Elementary has its own ornament to commemorate the re-dedication of our school upon its renovation several years ago.  It is a pewter ornament that features the school entrance on its face.  This is a wonderful reminder of your elementary school and a memory keepsake. To order your ornament send in a $10.00 check made payable to Hayfield Elementary. 

 

Angel Tree and Toys for Tots

The SCA’s first service project (our Angel Tree and Toys for Tots) is ongoing until December 13. We will be collecting unwrapped NEW hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens. We are also collecting unwrapped NEW toys, games, and books.  All items will be given to deserving children in our community this holiday season.  As the holiday seasons draw near, keep our service project in mind and help your child pick out some items to bring to school in December.  Look for our tree in the lobby!

 

SCA Spirit Day-Ugly Sweater

The SCA is sponsoring an Ugly Sweater Spirit Day on Friday, December 20. This is optional but students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in this fun event by wearing an ugly sweater this day.

 

Snow and Icy Walking Paths

While safety is always our first priority, there are areas in the neighborhood that students may take to come to school that are not the school’s responsibility to maintain.

For more information about the FCPS Family Life Education program, please see the detailed grade-level program descriptions at https://www.fcps.edu/academics/elementary-family-life-education-fle

Families who do not wish to have their child participate in FLE instruction may choose to opt their child out of any or all the lessons. If you would like to opt your child out of one or more lessons, please fill out the form provided to you in your child’s orientation packet at the beginning of the school year or you may access the opt out forms online at https://www.fcps.edu/academics/elementary-school-academics-k-6/elementary-family-life-education. If you have already indicated your desire to opt your child out of FLE lessons by using the form provided earlier in the school year, you do not need to complete another form. Should you opt your child out and then later decide you want your child included in FLE instruction, you must notify your child’s teacher in writing before instruction begins.

Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair comes to our school from November 11-15, to share the newest books and other exciting learning products with our young readers. Parents and teachers will find plenty of items of interest to them as well. The fair is open Monday from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. during the Veterans' Day Lunch for parents to shop.  Tuesday is the student Wish List Day.  We are open Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. for student shopping. We are open on Friday from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. for student shopping.  We’re also hosting a Family Event on Thursday, November 14 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.   Everyone is welcome to attend this event.

Students will preview the Book Fair on Tuesday and come home with a wish list for a few things they would like to get.  Parents are invited to come anytime during the week during open hours to browse and/or make purchases.  Parents may pull their child out of lunch to purchase books with them. If parents are unable to attend but would still like their student to purchase something, they may send in checks (made payable to Hayfield ES PTA) or cash with their students. Parents may also open an eWallet account for their children through Scholastic.  This is HIGHLY encouraged as there is no need to worry about exact amounts on checks or the losing of cash.  For  information on eWallet and to sign-up please click here: https://www.smore.com/2g1w9.  You will only be charged in the end for what is actually purchased.  Since Hayfield is a public school no tax is charged. It is also very helpful to have a list of what the student is allowed to buy, especially in the primary grades. 

When you visit the Scholastic Book Fair, please consider donating a book as a special gift to your child’s classroom library.  These books will enrich the education of children for years to come.  We have asked teachers to preview the Book Fair and fill out a Classroom Wish List so you will know exactly which books they desire.  Look for the Wish List Display and volunteers will help you from there.

Lost and Found

Please be sure to check the table located outside of the front office for any items your child may be missing.  We have many jackets and coats.  Any items not picked up by November 26 will be donated.

Shutterfly Storefront

Introducing a great way to shop that also gives back. Create unique photo gifts and personalized school gear through our custom storefront and Shutterfly will donate 8% of all purchases to Hayfield Elementary. Start shopping today at: HayfieldElementary.ShutterflyStorefront.com.

 

Y-Tie Announcement

We have stocking stuffers for your family!  Y-Ties are great for keeping those shoelaces in check and avoiding possible accidents from dangling laces. We have many colors for $3.00 a pair. We also have some brown or black boot laces which are $6.00 a pair. Let your child pick their favorite or make arrangements to pick up a pair without them knowing by contacting Ruth Drickey at 703-924-4532 or by email at RIDrickey@fcps.edu.  Cash or check payable to Hayfield Elementary.

To order your ornament send in a $10.00 check made payable to Hayfield Elementary.

 When To Reach Out To Your Child’s Teacher?

No matter what concerns you may have, there are always professionals to talk with at school. But typically, it’s best to speak with your child’s teacher first. Many issues can be resolved by speaking to the teacher directly and please, don’t hesitate to reach out regarding issues such as:

  • behavior
  • bullying
  • homework, testing, and classroom support
  • general classroom concerns and ongoing communication
  • field trip

The teacher will listen and address your concerns or will in turn reach out and connect you with the right person for different issues. Always remember that partnering with your child’s teacher can help your child have a more positive outlook on school.
