The 2019-2020 school year was truly a year of many unexpected challenges. We want to thank all of our families for your patience, kindness, and flexibility as we shifted quickly from face-to-face learning into distance learning.  We are so proud of our teachers and students for the work put in over the past three months. Special shout-out to our 6th Grade Dolphins!  Congratulations on completing elementary school and we can't wait to see you thrive in middle school. We hope that everyone has a safe and fun summer. FCPS will be offering many free opportunities to continue learning this summer.  Please see the various options below:  

SUMMER CONTINUITY OF LEARNING

FCPS will offer free continuity of learning for K-12 students.  A variety of self-directed print and online materials are available.  

Mathematics and Literacy Continuity of Learning (K-8)

Dates: June 29-July 31, 2020

FCPS school buildings will remain closed through the end of July. Therefore, we will continue to provide recommended distance learning opportunities for students throughout the summer. Your students will have access to skill practice through the iReady digital lessons through the FCPS public Universal Screener website. Students will need to enter their FCPS login credentials to access these resources. These digital activities will be available until Friday, July 31st. 

Additionally, 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. 

As students access these activities from June 29 to July 31, they will have the opportunity to attend one virtual office hour each week with one of our own outstanding staff members.  The schedule for office hours will be posted to the Lake Anne Elementary website (http://lakeannees.fcps.edu) in the coming weeks.  The schedule will indicate the teacher, grade level, day of week, and time for the office hour.  Office hours will be conducted through a secure link that students register to receive.  Upcoming messages will provide additional information and links for office hour registration.

We look forward to the chance to provide continuity of learning.

POSITIVITY PROJECT

The Positivty Project will continue for the remainder of the year as we revisit some of the characteristics that were missed while school was closed and before distance learning began.  Next week, we will focus on the "Love of Learning."  Those who exemplify love of learning are intrinsically motivated and engaged in a topic regardless of achieving an external standard. They enjoy learning simply for the sake of learning. They don’t need a prize or a high grade as a reward. Their reward is the process of doing the work and improving. #otherpeoplematter

STUDENT ITEM PICK-UP

Lake Anne will be hosting curbside pick-up for student items that are still in the school building.  Pick-up will take place on Friday, May 22nd and Friday, May 29th between 1-5pm on both days. Each class will be assigned a specific day/time to come pick-up their items. We will send out a schedule next week based on homeroom teacher.  Staff members will pack individual bags for each student. If you are not interested in picking up items or would like to donate them to the school, please contact your child's teacher and express this desire.

2020-2021 SCHOOL INTENTION

As the school year ends in a rather uncertain state, we are attempting to begin planning for next school year.  Information from you regarding students who will not be returning to Lake Anne Elementary School next year will be most helpful as we make sure we have the right number of instructional staff to support our students.  If your child(ren) will not be returning to Lake Anne for the 2020-2021 school year, please let our Student Information Assistant, Melinda Rivas, know by sending her an email at mmrivas@fcps.edu.  In your email message please provide her with the following information:

POSITIVITY PROJECT

The Positivity Project character strength for the first week of May is "Leadership" and the students will learn about the personal qualities of leaders, rather than the practice of leadership. These qualities include the ability to understand others and inspire them toward a common goal, the capacity to mitigate conflict and mold consensus, and the desire to lead other people.#otherpeoplematter

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK

Next week, May 4-8, marks Teacher Appreciation Week at LAES!  The LAES PTA has organized many creative ways to support the week.  On Monday, May 4th, draw your teacher a picture or make a poster showing how much you appreciate them.  Then visit LAES and attach it to the fence facing the parking lot.  A video of the posters/messages will be shared with staff members.  Let's thank the LAES staff members for their tireless efforts to continue distance learning.  

INTERNET CONNECTIVITY

Many companies are offering discounted internet service and devices during this crisis.  Please visit the links below to learn more:

MENTAL WELLNESS

School social workers, school psychologists and school counselors are available to support every student in our school communities with mental wellness during COVID-19 pandemic. Concern over the new virus can make children and families anxious. While there is uncertainty about the spread of the disease in the US, acknowledging the level of concern in any family member is appropriate. The resources available through the link below will help you help children cope with anxiety by providing accurate prevention information and facts without causing undue alarm. School counselors are the first point of contact for any academic, personal, or social-emotional concerns.

POSITIVITY PROJECT

The Positivity Project character trait that will be focused on next week is "purpose." This strength gives individuals the sense that they are connected with humanity. People who possess a sense of purpose believe that they were put on earth for a reason, whether it be to create a unique invention, to bring joy through art or music, or to help others become good people. These people have a true calling.  #otherpeoplematter

CLASSROOM BBCU LINKS

Beginning Monday, April 27th, all Lake Anne students will enter their "classrooms" and "office hours" through a private Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (BBCU) link that was sent to their FCPS Gmail address.  These are unique links that are sent directly from Blackboard Collaborate and cannot be shared with another user. If your Dolphin did not get a link or cannot locate it the email, please contact their classroom teacher.  To learn how to access FCPS Gmail accounts, please watch this "How to Access BBCU via Gmail" video or follow the steps below:     

SPECIALS BBCU LINKS

Students will not have private Blackboard Collaborate links sent to them for Specials.  Lake Anne students will continue to meet with Specials teachers through links that are located in Blackboard 24/7.  This is the method that was implemented last Monday.

This will bring up all of the BBCU links of the Specials teachers.
