VA School Climate Survey

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Our school, in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services and the Virginia Department of Education, is conducting the Virginia School Survey of Climate and Working Conditions of students, classroom instructors, and staff. The purpose of this survey is to measure student support, student engagement, school discipline, and safety conditions in each school. This information will be used to guide educational practices that produce a safe and supportive school environment.      

I am writing to provide you with information on the student survey. The survey will be completed online on January 28, 2022 during 7th period plus. The survey does not ask for your child’s name and all answers are anonymous (no one will know how your child answered the survey). Parents and guardians will not have access to their child’s survey answers. You may review the student survey at this website: https://tinyurl.com/VaSchoolSurvey.

The survey will ask questions such as how students feel about their school, how students get along with one another and their teachers, how students feel about school rules, and their perceptions of their teachers’ willingness to help them. Students will also be asked what kinds of bullying they may have observed during school and whether they have been bullied themselves.

All students in your child’s grade level will be eligible to participate in the survey. Students participating in remote instruction and in-person instruction are both eligible to participate. The survey is voluntary and your child can decide not to participate. No action will be taken against you, your child, or the school if your child does not participate. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please notify the school office by telephone or letter by January 27, 2022

Your child will not receive any immediate benefit from participating in the survey, but the survey will help us to maintain a safe, inviting, and supportive learning environment for your child.

Thank you for your cooperation in this important study of Virginia’s schools.

Message from the Principal

Wildcat Families,

We were excited to welcome our students back from their extended break this week.  Students and staff quickly fell back into routine, and we observed great learning occurring.  Thank you for your ongoing support as a school community!

 

Virtual Snow Days

Should we need it, The CVHS Virtual Learning Snow Day Schedule can be found on the school website.  Students will access virtual classes via Zoom.

FCPS has shared that any upcoming inclement weather days will result in virtual learning, and the letter can be found here.  As we prepare to observe the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 17, we are also watching for the potential of winter weather early in the week. 

We all need to prepare in order to have a successful inclement weather virtual learning day. CVHS teachers and staff have been working hard to ensure students know how to access their assignments in Schoology and log into Zoom.  

At home, we ask that you do a few simple things that will make an inclement weather virtual learning day run smoothly:

  • Make sure students charge their devices.
  • Remind your child that the inclement weather virtual learning day schedule includes a two-hour delay so they can check their devices and make sure they are able to log in properly. (See Virtual Snow Day schedule here)
  • Remind your child that attendance will be taken on inclement weather virtual learning days.
  • Please also complete the Technology Readiness Steps for Students with your child:
  1.   Log onto your laptop with your student ID and password.
  2.   Connect your laptop to your internet connection.
  3.   Login to Google account.  In the Chrome browser, go to www.fcpsschools.net, sign in with your fcpsschools.net account.
  4.   Log into Schoology. Make sure you can access your courses at home.

 

PTSA Meeting Cancelled on Tuesday, 1/18

This month’s PTSA has been cancelled for this Tuesday, 1/18, but please join us for the February meeting to be held on Tuesday, 2/15 at 7pm - more info to follow.

 

Academic Advising Updates

Over the next couple of months, students in Rising Grades 10-12 will be selecting courses for the 2022-23 school year.  Academic advising and course selection information is now updated on our website.  In addition to an academic advising information overview powerpoint, you will be able to find the course catalog with descriptions, course selection sheet, short videos from teachers that describe the courses offered along with other information.  Please review this information with your child to help assist with making the wise decision about course selections.  Please visit this link for our academic advising information.   

On January 18th from 6:00-7:00 PM, parents and students are invited to a Zoom webinar.  We will review briefly the course selection information overview powerpoint that can be found on our website and then have a Q/A with general inquiries.  Don’t hesitate to reach out to teachers or school counselors with any specific questions about your child.  

Please register in advance for this webinar:

https://myfcpsk12.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_JrNq6ifLS_2JOPF8YBNOYw

Counselors will be meeting with students individually to finalize course selections. Please see below for additional dates to help facilitate this process. 

 

All Night Grad Party - We Need You!

The PTSA is in desperate need of a chair for the ANGP.  Preferably, this would be a junior or sophomore parent who could then share their expertise with the next chair.  Without a chair, it will be difficult to have the ANGP.  The Chair would be the main coordinator of the event, with support from an ANGP Board and other parents. Anyone interested in volunteering or knowing more can reach out to Principal Lehman at [email protected] or Stephanie Sursi, PTSA President, at [email protected]

C'ville School News 12-17-2021

Message from the Principal

Wildcat Families,

Thank you to the community for the donations and contributions to support our Centreville students and families in need this holiday season.  We are fortunate to be part of a wonderful Wildcat community, and I continue to be grateful as your principal.  

We’ve had a busy few weeks leading up to the winter break including excellent music concerts, community service projects, the opening of winter sports, and a host of other student activities.  It is a joy to see our students engaged in the activities they are so passionate about.  

I hope everyone has a chance to rest and relax over the winter break and spend time with friends and family.  From everyone at CVHS, we are wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!

 

Homework 

To help make sure your family has a restful winter break, we have asked that no homework be assigned during this time. Teachers may assign long-range assignments in the weeks ahead of the break, but no assignments will be due the first two days of school following the break.

Classes resume on Monday, January 3, 2022

 

Social Media Concerns

This is a great time to talk with your student and remind them to avoid inappropriate online behavior.  We have been made aware of several inappropriate anonymous Instagram accounts, which target Centreville students and staff.  The accounts often use the CVHS name and logo and at times post hurtful and derogatory comments and pictures.  We are reporting these accounts to Instagram and FCPS Cyber Security in an effort to have the accounts removed.  We will also follow up with any students who may be identified as creating or contributing to these sites.  We have great students at CVHS, and most would not consider posting bullying and harassing type messages.  We want our students to treat each other with respect and kindness, and this behavior does not align with our expectations.  Here are helpful tips for the conversation.  Thank you!

 

All Night Grad Party - We Need You!

The PTSA is in desperate need of a chair for the ANGP.  Preferably, this would be a junior or sophomore parent who could then share their expertise with the next chair.  Without a chair, it will be difficult to have the ANGP.  The Chair would be the main coordinator of the event, with support from an ANGP Board and other parents. Anyone interested in volunteering or knowing more can reach out to Principal Lehman at [email protected] or Stephanie Sursi, PTSA President, at [email protected]

 

Cell Phones

Teachers are sharing increasing challenges with students using cellphones during class.  Despite teachers' best efforts to engage students and curb phone use, many students continue to be distracted, which impacts productivity, learning, and grades.  Our expectation is that phones are away and out of sight during class unless the teacher has given students permission to use them for an instructional activity.  Please support our efforts and remind your students to put their phones aside during class.

 

Morning Arrivals

We need your help to ensure that students arrive at school on time.  The first class begins at 8:10, and students are expected to be in the classroom at that time.  To give themselves enough time, students should arrive at school no later than 8:00.  We are seeing an increase in the number of students arriving late to school.  We don’t want students to miss important class time in the morning, and we know punctuality is an important habit to develop.  Thank you for your support!

Gift Card Donations for CVHS Families in Need

With the holiday season approaching it is important every student's holiday is filled with family and fun! However, some of our students and their families at Centreville High School encounter financial difficulties that may make it challenging for the holidays.

Here at Centreville we are truly grateful to have such a strong sense of community and to be able to help our students in times like these.

We are asking for your help!  Thank you to those of you who have already donated.

With your help Centreville High School will be able to provide students with support for meals this holiday season.  The student services staff will discretely help connect the donations with those CVHS families in need.

We are asking for gift card donations to nearby grocery or department stores so that our students and their families will have the opportunity to provide food on their table and gifts that will  bring smiles to all.  

Gift card donations can be turned into the main office.  We ask that these gift cards remain generic (ex. Target, Walmart, Wegmans, Giant, etc.) so that they can be used for multiple needs. Please have your donations in NO LATER THAN  Wednesday, Dec. 8th.

Any amount is greatly appreciated!  If larger donations are made, keeping the gift cards in increments less than $50 would be appreciated so that they can be more evenly distributed.

If you have any questions  please feel free to email Ms. Diaz at [email protected] or Ms. Brown at [email protected].

Thank you so much for your support!

Student Parking Lot and Dismissal 

Please talk with your student driver about the importance of driving safely while exiting the student parking lot.  Dismissal is a particularly busy time with many student drivers exiting at once.  Additionally, the turn onto Union Mill Rd is challenging with oncoming traffic, especially when trying to make a left hand turn.  School staff are not legally allowed to direct traffic on Union Mill Road, and CVHS is not provided with a uniformed officer to direct traffic during arrival or dismissal.  If student drivers don’t need to rush out after school, they can take an extra 10 minutes in the school and avoid the heavy traffic.  Please remind students to avoid distractions and stay off their phone.  Remaining patient, reducing speed, and avoiding aggressive driving are also important.  We don’t want to see any of our students get into an accident.  Thank you for helping us to promote safe driving with our teen drivers!

Early Dismissal Procedures

Parents may report an absence at this website, or by calling our 24/7 attendance line at 703-802-5419, or by submitting an email to [email protected]. If you plan to pick up your student prior to dismissal, the parent/guardian should call the attendance line in the morning (or at least one hour before requested dismissal time). The student needs to go to the attendance office and pick up the pass before their dismissal time. The student can then meet their parent/guardian out front of the school without having the parent/guardian enter the school to check out.

Reminder - PTSA Meeting Tomorrow, 10/19 & 7pm

Reminder - PTSA Mtg. Tomorrow 10/19 @ 7:00pm

The next PTSA meeting will take place on Tuesday, Oct 19, at 7:00 in the library.  In addition to the business meeting, we will have guest speakers sharing and discussing information to help parents with the challenges of teen mental health and wellness.  We hope to see you there!

 

The CVHS Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) is looking for a parent volunteer to chair the All Night Grad Party planning. The ANGP is our traditional last hurrah for newly graduated seniors to spend several hours hanging out with their friends in a fun and safe environment. The Chair would be the main coordinator of the event, with support from an ANGP Board and other parents. Parents of seniors are usually very involved, but sophomore and junior parents are the best fit for this role, since senior parents usually have a lot going on in the days leading up to graduation. Anyone interested in volunteering or knowing more can reach out to Stephanie Sursi  at [email protected]

 

The PTSA is also asking parents to help us by making a donation through a PTSA membership or donation to our No-Fuss Fundraiser. Everything raised goes directly back into the CVHS community - teacher/staff appreciation events, senior scholarships, professional development grants for teachers, special education program support, monthly educational programs for parents, and support for student programs, like the All Night Grad Party. We're rebuilding after a  difficult 2020-2021 school year, and every donation helps. Please consider making a one-time gift through the link above.
