This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission.

GovDelivery 2 weeks ago

Tiger Families,

We did it!  Day one is complete! We wanted to thank you for your patience, your excitement and support. Today was a very big day for all of us! There were a few technology issues first thing in the morning and a couple slow spots with google in the middle of the day but for the most part, the day was a huge success. We are also hearing from students and families that it is a long day for children. We are asking that you are patient with our teachers as they work to build stamina with their classes. The last thing we want is to overwhelm children in these first few days so we ask for your patience and flexibility as we get routines and brain breaks built in. 

We are on this (crazy) journey together and we will continue to ask for your grace and compassion and you can expect that from us, as well.  Please reach out if you need anything. Thank you for your partnership.  We are #TerrasetTogether and #TerrasetStrong!

(If you feel inclined, please share your first day pictures on the Terraset Facebook page with the above hashtags and #FirstDayFairfax).

Kindly,

Ms. Trout and Mr. Ickowski

School Buses Supporting the Food Delivery and Virtual Learning Programs Transportation Services

The Office of Transportation Services is supporting the food delivery program for Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS).

All FCPS students (regardless of age), as well as other Fairfax County children under the age of 18, are eligible for free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch. Our school buses will continue to support this program as well as provide service to programs that support students’ virtual learning.

The serving times will be 8:00am-12:30pm Monday through Friday.

Walk-ups are still welcome at the Herndon/Reston sites listed below. Walkers are asked to use school sidewalks to safely navigate their walk to the pick-up stations

For the bus route schedule click here.

Please note the service times for buses are between 6:00am-8:30am depending on the schedule and stop;  this is to ensure each family can get a breakfast and a lunch before they start classes.

Consent for Digital Resources

At Terraset, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families. Some of the digital resources your child may use this year will require your consent before they can be used. You can find our school’s list of the resources that require parental consent here: https://terrasetes.fcps.edu/adopteddigitalresources

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission. Please reach out to your student’s classroom teacher if you have questions or concerns about the digital resources we’ve chosen to use this year.

FCPS Launches New Parent Technology Help Desk

To support families who are working with their children during distance learning, Fairfax County Public Schools is launching a new Parent Technology Help Desk. The number is 1-833-921-3277 (833-921-FCPS). It will be answered by staff 7 a.m.to 11 p.m., seven days a week. If the help desk is unable to solve the issue on the phone with the parent or guardian, they will enter a ticket on the parent’s behalf and the request for help will be transferred to the appropriate FCPS team. 

Parents or guardians who need help in a language other than English should let help desk staff know, and a interpreter will join them on the line. (FCPS also has existing parent information phone lines, available in eight different languages, that can assist with general questions about FCPS.)

FCPS has also set up an online portal to allow older students and parents and guardians to request technology help directly. 

Get more information about the new Parent Technology Help Desk

Tips for Online Learning Success

For more information about tips for online learning, help videos, and support, please visit the Technology Supports for Families page on the FCPS website.

SR&R Parent Acknowledgement Form

Parents and guardians, please review the Student Rights and Responsibilities and related resources at www.fcps.edu/srr. After reviewing the information, fill out the SR&R Parent Acknowledgement Form using this link we have provided.  The form must be filled out one time per student.

Printed copies of the Family Guide as well as the translated version of the document will not be available until October

Forms

Please look for the following FCPS forms that we will need for all students.  You may fill them out electronically or wait until paper copies are sent home on Curbside Pick Up day. Forms can be through WeCare, scanned and emailed to TerrasetMainOffice@fcps.edu beginning Sept. 1, 2020, or placed in the drop-box next to the doorbell at Lower Door 1.

 

Health Information and Emergency Care Forms

The Health Information Form and the Emergency Care Information form  provide valuable information regarding student health conditions. These forms are critical in the early identification of students who may need healthcare support in the educational environment. Along with the development of Healthcare Plans and Action Plans, the Public Health Nurses utilize the information contained to develop teaching strategies for FCPS staff in order to meet the requirements of Regulation 2104 Health Services-School Health Related Needs.

As the school year begins virtually, it is important to remember these forms are required for all students for SY 20-21 and are available for electronic submission by parents via their FCPS 24/7 (Blackboard) accounts within the weCare@school (weCare) module

Registration for 2020-2021

Registration of students for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year is to be conducted virtually while schools and offices remain closed. 

  • The Enrollment Bundle is the official registration packet and can be sent electronically as a link via e-mail to the parent.  This bundle can be used for students whose families have access to technology that allows them to fill out forms online and send them back to the registrar via e-mail.    

Please use this link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4daeae23a6f4c07-registration  to set up an appointment to finalize the registration process in person to provide an original birth certificate.  Parents are also required to provide proof of residency, school records, and proof of all school health entrance requirements as outlined in the Registration Requirements Flyer.

 Band and Orchestra Open House

Orchestra is offered to 4th, 5th and 6th graders. Band is offered to 5th and 6th graders (there are limited instrument choices this year). Band and Orchestra will take place during the club time or Mondays. ALL K-6 students will receive 30 minutes of General Music instruction weekly. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the inability to perform virtually, there will be NO Terraset Tiger Chorus offered this year. However, be on the lookout for music clubs!

PTO membership Drive

The Terraset PTO was formed by Terraset parents and is run specifically for the benefit of our school and students. Throughout the year we coordinate and fund programs that enrich our students’ experiences and support our teachers’ and administrators’ goals and ideas.  Because of the unconventional school year, the PTO is promoting our membership drive with incentives to support Terraset staff and students.

  Each week we will draw 3 names to win a Terraset giveaway. Prizes include: car magnets, tote bags, T-Shirts, face masks, and a few surprises. We hope to get 20 members joining or rejoining each week. If you have not joined the PTO before, this is a great time to start!

Memberships are only $10. The signup deadline for prize giveaways is October 13th.  Memberships from the 2020-2021 school year have expired.

This year will require even more creativity than ever as we strive to support our school as we always have. Active participation and support from our families is crucial to our success and we thank you in advance!

Social Emotional Wellness Considerations for Parents and Caregivers From the Virginia Department of Education

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has put together a resource listing that will help you and your child to prioritize your mental wellness.  In addition to keeping children physically safe during the pandemic, it is also important to care for their emotional health.  The threat of COVID-19, long-term social distancing, and prolonged disruption to the school routine may create significant stress and impact children's mental well-being.  

The information below will assist you in navigating this period together in a healthy way.

Social Emotional Wellness Considerations for Parents and Caregivers From the Virginia Department of Education

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has put together a resource listing that will help you and your child to prioritize your mental wellness.  In addition to keeping children physically safe during the pandemic, it is also important to care for their emotional health.  The threat of COVID-19, long-term social distancing, and prolonged disruption to the school routine may create significant stress and impact children's mental well-being.

We look forward to welcoming you to Terraset Elementary!

THANK YOU for Supporting the Tiger Book Drive

Thank you to all who donated books--we collected SO many for students who need them! Parents may still request books via this web form or by calling the school office.

Registration for 2020-2021

Registration of students for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year is to be conducted virtually while schools and offices remain closed. 

  • The Enrollment Bundle is the official registration packet and can be sent electronically as a link via e-mail to the parent.  This bundle can be used for students whose families have access to technology that allows them to fill out forms online and send them back to the registrar via e-mail.    

Please use this link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4daeae23a6f4c07-registration  to set up an appointment to finalize the registration process in person to provide an original birth certificate.  Parents are also required to provide proof of residency, school records, and proof of all school health entrance requirements as outlined in the Registration Requirements Flyer.

Health Information and Emergency Care Forms

The Health Information Form and the Emergency Care Information form  provide valuable information regarding student health conditions. These forms are critical in the early identification of students who may need healthcare support in the educational environment. Along with the development of Healthcare Plans and Action Plans, the Public Health Nurses utilize the information contained to develop teaching strategies for FCPS staff in order to meet the requirements of Regulation 2104 Health Services-School Health Related Needs.

As the school year begins virtually, it is important to remember these forms are required for all students for SY 20-21 and are available for electronic submission by parents via their FCPS 24/7 (Blackboard) accounts within the weCare@school (weCare) module

Virtual Learning Technology Supports for Families

A one-page Distance Learning Technology Best Practices and Troubleshooting guide will also be distributed to families at all outreach locations: schools, grab-n-go, computer pickup, and other venues.These tools will be accessible through the FCPS Public and school websites on August 26.

Public Library Equity Access Pass

As part of the One Fairfax initiative, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL), and FCPS Library Information Services have partnered in the Library Equity Access Pass (LEAP) pilot program.

On October 1, 2020 the LEAP program will go division-wide, providing FCPS PreK-12 students with public library checkout privileges for books automatically, without the need to register for a physical library card. Student names and ID numbers will be provided to FCPL through an automated data download.  Families who do not wish to participate shall select the opt-out for LEAP in the 2020-21 SR&R document.

Participating in the LEAP program provides: 

  • The ability to checkout up to three public library books at a time. At any FCPL library branch, students or parents simply share their name and indicated they are an FCPS student. A virtual account exists and identification is not required. 
  • Lost or overdue books will not be charged a fine or replacement fee.  However, only three books can be on a virtual account at a time.
  • Checkouts are limited to physical books. eBooks and public library digital resources cannot be accessed through this account. Students are welcome to establish a standard public library card for full access.

The Fairfax County Public Library is open for Express services and offers curbside checkout.

Latest News from Terraset

Message from Ms. Trout and Mr. Ickowski

We hope you are enjoying your summer break...as strange as it seems. This time is not one we could have imagined six months ago and the next six months will likely be just as unpredictable. As difficult and uncertain as it has been, we are thankful to be on this journey with you. We are committed to you and to your children and will work to innovate, adapt and grow together with you. We will continue to ask for and to serve with grace and compassion as we embark on virtual learning this fall.

Now that we are clear in our path for this first quarter, we will be working on all of the logistics for a successful and exciting start to the year. As the details get figured out, we will share with you all that you need to know. Please know that we will need until later in August to get firm plans in place. Your patience is hugely appreciated. We will have lots to share and lots to be excited about!

Esperamos que estés disfrutando de sus vacaciones de verano ... por extraño que parezca. Esta vez no es una que podríamos haber imaginado hace seis meses y los próximos seis meses probablemente serán igual de impredecibles. Tan difícil e incierto como ha sido, estamos agradecidos de estar en este viaje con ustedes. Estamos comprometidos con ustedes y con sus hijos y trabajaremos para innovar, adaptarnos y crecer junto con ustedes. Continuaremos pidiendo y sirviendo con gracia y compasión mientras nos embarcamos en el aprendizaje virtual este otoño.

Ahora que estamos claros en nuestro camino para este primer trimestre, estaremos trabajando en toda la logística para un comienzo de año exitoso y emocionante. A medida que se resuelvan los detalles, compartiremos con usted todo lo que necesita saber. Tenga en cuenta que necesitaremos hasta más adelante en agosto para establecer planes firmes. Su paciencia es muy apreciada.

El resto del mensaje en espanol viene de email de Sra. Golac!

Registration for 2020-2021

Registration of students for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year is to be conducted virtually while schools and offices remain closed. One of the following two processes can be used to conduct a temporary registration:  

  • The Temporary Enrollment Intake Form is intended to be used when gathering registration information for a student whose family has limited access to technology or limited English. It is designed to get the specific information that is needed to generate a student ID number so that a student can be added to the Student Information System (SIS).  This form should be completed over the phone and should not be sent via e-mail for parents to complete.   
  • The Enrollment Bundle is the official registration packet and can be sent electronically as a link via e-mail to the parent.  This bundle can be used for students whose families have access to technology that allows them to fill out forms online and send them back to the registrar via e-mail.    

Note that these are temporary registration processes intended to be used while schools and offices are closed.  These are not official registrations since parents will need to finalize the registration process in person to provide an original birth certificate.  Parents are also required to provide proof of residency, school records, and proof of all school health entrance requirements as outlined in the Registration Requirements Flyer.

Laptop Update

FCPS is working to provide a laptop and wifi access for ALL students. Additional details on this distribution plan will be coming soon. Distribution will happen after August 17th.

If your child has a laptop from last school year and will be returning to Terraset in the fall, you will be able to keep it and continue using it for the upcoming year. This is with the exception of rising 6th grade students who need to drop off their laptops next week (see message above) so that they can receive a new laptop after August 17.

Congratulations!

The Terraset Family would like to publicly congratulate Mrs. Meghan Ehrman on her promotion to Assistant Principal at Fairview Elementary School. What a lucky school community they are. We are grateful for Mrs. Ehrman's service to our Terraset children, families, colleagues and the PTO. We wish her the very best in this exciting new journey.

Checking In

GovDelivery 2 months 3 weeks ago
Message from Ms. Trout

Terraset Families, 

I wanted to check in with you to let you know that we are well aware of your many questions and concerns about the fall. While we do not have many answers yet, we promise to stay in touch with you as we learn more. In the meantime, the form to request face-to-face or virtual instruction will be sent next week and the county is asking that it is returned by July 10.There will be information in that communication that will hopefully help you to make the best decision for your child and family. If you have any questions, please email me and I will do my best to answer them based on what we know at this point. 

The bottom line is that our biggest concern is the health of our students and staff. We are committed to creating the best possible environment for our Tiger students - however we end up starting school this fall. 

As always, if you have any questions please reach out via email. Mr. Ickowski has some well-deserved time off until the middle of July and I will be taking some time away next week but I will respond to emails when I get back.

Kindly,

Lindsay Trout

 

Mensaje de Ms. Trout

Familias,

Quería comunicarme con usted para informarle que conocemos sus muchas preguntas e inquietudes sobre el otoño. Si bien aún no tenemos muchas respuestas, prometemos mantenernos en contacto con usted a medida que aprendemos más. Mientras tanto, la próxima semana se enviará el formulario para solicitar instrucción presencial o virtual. Habrá información en esa comunicación que esperamos lo ayude a tomar la mejor decisión para su hijo y su familia. Si tiene alguna pregunta, envíeme un correo electrónico y haré todo lo posible para responderla según lo que sabemos en este momento.

La conclusión es que nuestra mayor preocupación es la salud de nuestros estudiantes y personal. Estamos comprometidos a crear el mejor ambiente posible para nuestros estudiantes Tiger; sin embargo, terminamos comenzando la escuela este otoño.

Como siempre, si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese por correo electrónico. El Sr. Ickowski tiene un merecido tiempo libre hasta mediados de julio y me tomaré un tiempo libre la próxima semana, pero responderé a los correos electrónicos cuando regrese.

Sinceramente,

Ms. Trout

Registration for 2020-2021

Registration of students for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year is to be conducted virtually while schools and offices remain closed. One of the following two processes can be used to conduct a temporary registration:  

  • The Temporary Enrollment Intake Form is intended to be used when gathering registration information for a student whose family has limited access to technology or limited English.  It is designed to get the specific information that is needed to generate a student ID number so that a student can be added to the Student Information System (SIS).  This form should be completed over the phone use and should not be sent via e-mail for parents to complete.   
  • The Enrollment Bundle is the official registration packet and can be sent electronically as a link via e-mail to the parent.  This bundle can be used for students whose families have access to technology that allows them to fill out forms online and send them back to the registrar via e-mail.    

Note that these are temporary registration processes intended to be used while schools and offices are closed.  These are not official registrations since parents will need to finalize the registration process in person to provide an original birth certificate.  Parents are also required to provide proof of residency, school records, and proof of all school health entrance requirements as outlined in the Registration Requirements Flyer.

Optional Summer Learning 

 Students currently in grades K-6 will receive both a Mathematics and a Language Arts Essentials Summer Practice Book in the mail by the end of June. Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide recommended practice activities for students to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year; they are not intended to preview content from next year’s grade level but rather reinforce essential learning from this past year. 

Please refer to the below schedule if you registered your child to participate in the Summer Office Hour. The office hour will take place weekly from June 29th- July 31st.

Our mission: #TerrasetTogether

As we wrap up this unbelievable school year, we want to thank you for your patience, your persistence, your compassion and grace as we all navigated these unchartered waters together.  Our teachers and staff have completely re-done the way they teach – in a very short amount of time. They have worked tirelessly and passionately and for their efforts, we are unbelievably grateful. 

We are all looking forward to summer and to coordinating our efforts for next year.  Please be on the lookout for ways you can contribute to our mission moving forward: #TerrasetTogether.

We wish you a happy and healthy summer.  We will be in touch as decisions about next school year are made.

Social Emotional Wellness Considerations for Parents and Caregivers From the Virginia Department of Education

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has put together a resource listing that will help you and your child to prioritize your mental wellness.  In addition to keeping children physically safe during the pandemic, it is also important to care for their emotional health.  The threat of COVID-19, long-term social distancing, and prolonged disruption to the school routine may create significant stress and impact children's mental well-being.  

The information below will assist you in navigating this period together in a healthy way.

South Lakes Pyramid News You Choose

GovDelivery 3 months 2 weeks ago

 

Dear South Lakes Pyramid Parents and Community,

We reach out to you today as a united group of educators to acknowledge the events that have transpired portraying the anger and hurt that exists in our country.  Racism, violence and hate have no place in the South Lakes Pyramid, rather our schools are places of inclusiveness and compassion for all while providing hope for the future. To our Black and African American families and community members, we stand with you and are here for you.

At each of our schools, we have made a commitment to bring awareness to social and emotional issues within our buildings through an equity lens.  Every school in the South Lakes pyramid has an equity lead who partners with the principal to ensure staff has the tools to recognize and take action to ensure opportunities, access, and success in every endeavor for all of our students.  We have participated in professional learning on equitable and culturally responsive practices and are committed to furthering our learning in order to address the topics of racism and equity with our students and with each other.

During this time, we will not sit silently. We have all worked together to create places and spaces where all are welcome and seen. In our classrooms and within our school communities, we will continue to learn about, value, and embrace each other’s differences while working to change the conditions that allow injustice.  It is the diversity of our students and community members who make the South Lakes pyramid a wonderfully unique place to live, work, play, learn and grow.  We recognize that everyone may be impacted by these recent events differently and we welcome you to reach out to your school’s principal, equity leads, school counselor, or clinical staff with any questions or concerns. 

For additional resources, please consider the following:

 

As a community, we are here and we stand together.  We see you.  We hear you.  You belong here.

Sincerely,

 

Your South Lakes Pyramid Principals:

Mie Devers -  Dogwood ES

Lindsay Trout – Terraset ES

Jill Zuber – Forest Edge ES

Estimados padres de familia y miembros de la comunidad de la pirámide escolar de South Lakes:

Nos comunicamos con ustedes hoy como un grupo unido de educadores para reconocer los eventos que han sucedido y que representan la ira y el dolor que existe en nuestro país. El racismo, la violencia y el odio no tienen cabida en la pirámide escolar de South Lakes. Más bien, nuestras escuelas son lugares donde se incluye a todos y se tiene compasión por todos mientras brindamos esperanza para el futuro. Queremos expresarles a nuestras familias y miembros de la comunidad de raza negra y afroamericana que estamos con ustedes y que ustedes pueden contar con nosotros.

En cada una de nuestras escuelas nos hemos comprometido a concienciar a las personas acerca de los problemas sociales y emocionales dentro de nuestros edificios analizando los problemas con equidad. Cada una de las escuelas de la pirámide escolar de South Lakes tiene asignado un especialista en equidad que trabaja con el director para garantizar que el personal tenga las herramientas necesarias para reconocer y actuar para así poder garantizar que todos nuestros alumnos tengan las oportunidades, el acceso y el éxito en todo lo que hacen. Hemos participado en formación profesional para aprender prácticas equitativas y culturalmente apropiadas y tenemos el compromiso de aumentar nuestros conocimientos para poder tratar los temas de racismo y equidad con nuestros alumnos y entre nosotros.

En estos momentos, no nos quedaremos sentados callados. Todos hemos trabajado juntos para crear lugares y espacios donde todos son bienvenidos y a todos se les toma en cuenta. En nuestras aulas y en nuestras comunidades escolares seguiremos aprendiendo sobre nuestras diferencias y las apreciaremos y aceptaremos mientras trabajamos para cambiar las condiciones que permiten que haya injusticia. Es la diversidad de nuestros alumnos y de los miembros de nuestra comunidad que hace que la pirámide escolar de South Lakes sea un lugar excepcional para vivir, trabajar, jugar, aprender y crecer. Reconocemos que todos pueden estar afectados por estos eventos recientes de diferentes maneras y los invitamos a comunicarse con el director de su escuela, los especialistas en equidad, los orientadores escolares o el personal clínico si tienen alguna pregunta o preocupación. 

Para obtener recursos adicionales, por favor consideren los siguientes recursos:

Como comunidad, aquí estamos y nos mantenemos unidos. Los vemos. Los escuchamos. Ustedes están donde deben estar.

Atentamente,

Sus directores de la Pirámide Escolar de South Lakes:
