    MES - Summer Communication (July 18) / MES - Summer Communication (18 de Julio)

    Hello Moncure Families!

    I hope everyone is enjoying a nice summer.  To those of you who are new to Moncure, Welcome.  To those of you who are returning, we are happy to have you back.  The purpose of this communication is to share important back to school information to help everyone to prepare for our return.  Should you have any questions about our return, I ask that you contact Moncure’s office for assistance at 540-658-6300

    2021-22 First Day of School / School Hours /  SCPS Calendar Link

    Moncure’s first day of school is Monday, August 9th and our daily hours for the upcoming school year are from 8:15 AM – 2:25 PM.  We hope this is not new information for anyone reading along.  To help you to prepare for the year ahead, I encourage families to access the SCPS 2021-22 School Calendar.  It will help you prepare for holidays and periodic days off.  It is important to understand that students are expected to attend school this year Monday-Friday.  There are NO asynchronous days planned at this time.  We hope that makes everyone happy! 

    Student Enrollments

           Do you have or know of a student who needs to enroll for school?  If so, it is very important that students are enrolled now.  To enroll, families need to register through our website.  Should you have any questions, you can contact our office for support.  Kindergarten students require a physical to enroll.  Doctor’s offices are being booked at rapid rates and we are already aware of students who may not be able to start on our first day.  Please help us spread the word and avoid last-minute registrations!  Thanks for your help!

    School Supplies / Supply Lists

    School supplies are beginning to arrive on shelves with great discounts.  Below you will find the link for Moncure’s 2021-22 Supply Lists.  We hope you find some great deals!  While our county and Ebenezer UMC will be providing several loaded backpacks to support our community, supplies are limited and bags will be distributed through our counseling department.  Distribution of backpacks will take place during our Back-to-School Orientations on August 5th.   Moncure’s 2021-22 Supply List Link

    Back-to-School Orientations – Thursday, August 5th

                Please mark your calendars!  Moncure is opening our doors again for Back-to-School Orientations on Thursday, August 5th.  In order to accommodate our limited parking, provide interpreter support in all classrooms, and keep crowds limited, Moncure has created 45-minute grade level blocks this to support our community.  Should you not be able to attend, teachers will share recorded orientation sessions with families after their live sessions wrap up.  While our building will be open for visitors, grade levels and teachers will not be available at their non-designated time.  We ask that families follow and respect our schedule below as our teachers prepare and plan for their students.  Thanks for your cooperation!  We are looking forward to seeing visitors return to our building! 

     

    Back-to-School Orientation Schedule – Thursday, August 5th

    Kindergarten             10:00-10:45

    First Grade                11:00-11:45

    Second Grade          12:00-12:45

    Third Grade               1:00-1:45

    Fourth Grade            2:00-2:45

    Fifth Grade                3:00-3:45

    *Families not able to attend will be sent recordings of classroom orientation sessions.

    **Interpreters will be provided in each classroom.

     

    Car Rider Registration

    As we prepare for our return, we need to set up our 2021-22 Car Rider system.  If you are planning for your student to primarily ride a bus, please DO NOT fill out this registration form.  If you do not plan for your student(s) to ride a bus, I ask that you to complete the Car Rider Registration form below.  Based on the completion of this form, family numbers and student tags will be created.  Please do not wait until the first day of school to complete this form.  With nearly 900 students, you’re your help now will greatly reduce stress later.  Thanks for your help!   Car Rider Registration Form

    Student Placements on ParentVue

                Student classroom placements will be posted on ParentVue the week of August 2nd.  An exact date will be provided in a future communication.  If you need help logging into ParentVue, please contact our office for assistance.  With ParentVue also being the way to receive report cards throughout a student’s schooling with Stafford County Public Schools, it is a great idea to keep your username and password handy.  One account will connect an entire family.  I hope this helps.

    ¡Hola familias de Moncure!

    Espero que todos estén disfrutando de un buen verano. Para aquellos de ustedes que son nuevos en Moncure, bienvenidos. Para aquellos de ustedes que están regresando, estamos felices de tenerlos de regreso. El propósito de esta comunicación es compartir información importante sobre el regreso a la escuela para ayudar a todos a prepararse para nuestro regreso. Si tiene alguna pregunta sobre nuestra devolución, le pido que se comunique con la oficina de Moncure para obtener ayuda al 540-658-6300.

    2021-22 Primer día de clases / Horas escolares / Enlace al calendario de SCPS

    El primer día de clases de Moncure es el lunes 9 de agosto y nuestro horario diario para el próximo año escolar es de 8:15 a.m. a 2:25 p.m. Esperamos que esta no sea información nueva para quienes la sigan leyendo. Para ayudarlo a prepararse para el próximo año, animo a las familias a que accedan al calendario escolar de SCPS 2021-22. Le ayudará a prepararse para las vacaciones y los días libres periódicos. Es importante entender que se espera que los estudiantes asistan a la escuela este año de lunes a viernes. No hay días asincrónicos planeados en este momento. ¡Esperamos que eso haga felices a todos!

    Matriculaciones de estudiantes

           ¿Tiene o conoce un estudiante que necesite inscribirse en la escuela? Si es así, es muy importante que los estudiantes estén inscritos ahora. Para inscribirse, las familias deben registrarse a través de nuestro sitio web. Si tiene alguna pregunta, puede comunicarse con nuestra oficina para obtener asistencia. Los estudiantes de jardín de infantes requieren un examen físico para inscribirse. Los consultorios médicos se están reservando a un ritmo rápido y ya somos conscientes de los estudiantes que es posible que no puedan comenzar el primer día. ¡Ayúdenos a correr la voz y evitar inscripciones de última hora! ¡Gracias por tu ayuda!

    Orientaciones de regreso a clases: Jueves 5 de Agosto

    ¡Marque sus calendarios! Moncure está abriendo nuestras puertas nuevamente para las Orientaciones de Regreso a la Escuela el jueves 5 de agosto. Con el fin de acomodar nuestro estacionamiento limitado, brindar apoyo de intérpretes en todos los salones de clases y mantener las multitudes limitadas, Moncure ha creado bloques de nivel de grado de 45 minutos para apoyar a nuestra comunidad. Si no puede asistir, los maestros compartirán sesiones de orientación grabadas con las familias después de que concluyan sus sesiones en vivo. Si bien nuestro edificio estará abierto para visitantes, los niveles de grado y los maestros no estarán disponibles en el horario no designado. Pedimos que las familias sigan y respeten nuestro horario a continuación mientras nuestros maestros se preparan y planifican para sus estudiantes. ¡Gracias por su cooperación! ¡Esperamos que los visitantes regresen a nuestro edificio!

     

    Horario de orientación de regreso a clases: Jueves 5 de Agosto

    Jardín de infancia    10:00 - 10:45

    Primer grado             11:00 - 11:45

    Registro de conductor de automóvil

    Mientras nos preparamos para nuestro regreso, debemos configurar nuestro sistema Car Rider 2021-22. Si está planeando que su estudiante viaje principalmente en autobús, NO complete este formulario de inscripción. Si no planea que su (s) estudiante (s) viajen en autobús, le pido que complete el formulario de registro de pasajero en automóvil a continuación. Sobre la base de completar este formulario, se crearán los números de familia y las etiquetas de los estudiantes. No espere hasta el primer día de clases para completar este formulario. Con casi 900 estudiantes, usted es su ayuda ahora y reducirá en gran medida el estrés en el futuro. ¡Gracias por tu ayuda! Formulario de registro de conductor de automóvil

    Ubicaciones de estudiantes en ParentVue

    Las ubicaciones de los estudiantes en el salón de clases se publicarán en ParentVue la semana del 2 de agosto. Se proporcionará una fecha exacta en una comunicación futura. Si necesita ayuda para iniciar sesión en ParentVue, comuníquese con nuestra oficina para obtener ayuda. Dado que ParentVue también es la forma de recibir boletas de calificaciones durante la escolarización de un estudiante en las Escuelas Públicas del Condado de Stafford, es una gran idea tener a mano su nombre de usuario y contraseña. Una cuenta conectará a toda una familia. Espero que esto ayude.

    MES Summer Literacy Challenge

       Hey Moncure Bears!  Don’t become “Screen Zombies” this summer.  Mrs. Haberkost and Mrs. Watt have some reading and writing ideas to keep your brains working over our 7-week break.  Watch this video to learn more.

    2021-2022 School Year - Return to Learn

         As we prepare for the 2021-22 school year, many questions exist in the community.  Moncure’s website has a Q & A Return to Learn link to answer most of your questions.     Please use this Q & A Return to Learn link to access our website. 

    Covid Vaccination Interest (for children 12 and up)

         Stafford County Public Schools is working with the Health Department and local pharmacies to establish vaccine clinics for students who are age 12 and up.  We need your help to identify the number of students who are interested in receiving a vaccine.  Please use the link below to record your interest in having your children (12 and up) vaccinated. 

    Vaccination Interest Link (for children 12 and up)

    Missing Library Books

         We need your help!  Dating back to last March, Moncure is still missing approximately over $5,000 worth of library books.  We really need to re-shelf as many of these books as possible.  Please check your student’s rooms and bookshelves for any of Moncure’s library books (they will have a library bar code).  We do not have a budget to replace this quantity of books.  There are NO fines to return overdue library books! Thanks for your help! 

     Then end of the year is approaching!  What do I do with my student’s Chromebook?

         Stafford County asks that all returning students keep their Chromebook for next school year.  Fifth grade students WILL take their Chromebook to middle school. All other students will keep their devices for next year.  It is recommend that students use their Chromebook periodically throughout the summer to keep them updated.  Rising Kindergarten students will receive a new Chromebook this fall.  If your family is moving outside of Stafford County, we ask that you return your Chromebook(s) within one week of their last day.  Families that move and do not return their Chromebooks will have their devices turned off remotely.  Please help us to protect our county’s investment.  

    Textbook Returns

         Like our Library Books, we are still missing several textbooks from last March.  As they year wraps up, we must round up as many textbooks as possible.  Please help us with this difficult.  Textbooks can be turned into our office at any time.  We will do the rest.  Thanks so much! 

     “Pawsitive” and “Caught Ya” Citations

         It has been fun seeing a few more “Pawsitive” Citations sent to our students recently.  Keep up the great work Bears!   As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff too.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link  

    Have a Great Week #BEARNATION!

    Desafío de alfabetización de verano de MES

         ¡Hola, osos Moncure! No se convierta en "Screen Zombies" este verano. La Sra. Haberkost y la Sra. Watt tienen algunas ideas de lectura y escritura para mantener sus cerebros trabajando durante nuestro receso de 7 semanas. Mira este vídeo para aprender más.

    Video del desafío de alfabetización de verano de MES

    Año escolar 2021-2022 - Volver a aprender

    Mientras nos preparamos para el año escolar 2021-22, existen muchas preguntas en la comunidad. El sitio web de Moncure tiene un enlace de preguntas y respuestas para volver a aprender para responder a la mayoría de sus preguntas. Utilice este enlace de preguntas y respuestas para volver a aprender para acceder a nuestro sitio web.

    Interés de vacunación contra Covid (para niños de 12 años en adelante)

         Las Escuelas Públicas del Condado de Stafford están trabajando con el Departamento de Salud y las farmacias locales para establecer clínicas de vacunas para estudiantes de 12 años en adelante. Necesitamos su ayuda para identificar la cantidad de estudiantes que están interesados ​​en recibir una vacuna. Utilice el enlace a continuación para registrar su interés en vacunar a sus hijos (de 12 años en adelante).

    Enlace de interés de vacunación (para niños de 12 años en adelante)

    Libros de la biblioteca que faltan

         ¡Necesitamos tu ayuda! Desde marzo pasado, a Moncure todavía le faltan aproximadamente $5,000 en libros de la biblioteca. Realmente necesitamos volver a almacenar tantos libros como sea posible. Por favor revise las habitaciones y estanterías de sus estudiantes para ver si hay libros de la biblioteca de Moncure (tendrán un código de barras de la biblioteca). No tenemos presupuesto para reponer esta cantidad de libros. ¡NO hay multas por devolver libros vencidos de la biblioteca! ¡Gracias por tu ayuda!

    ¡Entonces se acerca el fin de año! ¿Qué hago con la Chromebook de mi alumno?

         El condado de Stafford pide que todos los estudiantes que regresan conserven su Chromebook para el próximo año escolar. Los estudiantes de quinto grado llevarán su Chromebook a la escuela intermedia. Todos los demás estudiantes conservarán sus dispositivos durante el próximo año. Se recomienda que los estudiantes usen su Chromebook periódicamente durante el verano para mantenerlos actualizados. Los estudiantes que ingresan al jardín de infantes recibirán un nuevo Chromebook este otoño. Si su familia se muda fuera del condado de Stafford, le pedimos que devuelva su (s) Chromebook (s) dentro de una semana de su último día. Las familias que se muden y no devuelven sus Chromebooks tendrán sus dispositivos apagados de forma remota. Ayúdenos a proteger la inversión de nuestro condado.

    Devoluciones de libros de texto

         Al igual que nuestros libros de la biblioteca, todavía nos faltan varios libros de texto del pasado mes de marzo. A medida que termina el año, debemos reunir tantos libros de texto como sea posible. Ayúdanos con esta dificultad. Los libros de texto se pueden entregar en nuestra oficina en cualquier momento. Nosotros haremos el resto. ¡Muchas gracias!

    Citas "Pawsitive" y "Caught Ya"

         Ha sido divertido ver algunas citas más “Pawsitive” enviadas a nuestros estudiantes recientemente. ¡Sigan con el gran trabajo Bears! Como siempre, me gustaría animar a los estudiantes y miembros de la comunidad a que reconozcan a nuestro personal con citas de “Atrapado”. También me encanta enviar sus felicitaciones a nuestro increíble personal. Si desea reconocer a uno o más miembros de nuestro personal, simplemente use este enlace.

    Que tengas una buena semana #BEARNATION!

    SOL Make-Ups this week!

         This week, we will only conduct Reading, 4th Grade Virginia Studies, and 5th Grade Science make-up assessments. If your student was absent for one or more of these tests, we plan to test them on Wednesday and/or Thursday. 

         Next week, we will wrap up our SOLs with Hybrid students testing on Monday, June 7th and Virtual students testing on Tuesday, June 8th.  Like previous SOL weeks, Hybrid Students will receive asynchronous assignments while Virtual Students are assessed and Virtual Students will receive Asynchronous assignments while Hybrid Students are assessed.  After a crazy year of COVID instruction, we simply challenge our students to give their best on these tests.  We are proud of our Moncure Bears!

    Fifth Grade “Moving On” Ceremony (June 9th at 12:00 PM)

         Calling ALL Fifth Grade families!  On Wednesday, June 9th at 12 PM, we will celebrate our amazing fifth grade students as they prepare for the next chapter of their education.  Our students will participate in a concurrent “Moving On” ceremony while our parents and families will be able to join virtually.  While this format is not as good as it once was, We do believe it will be an amazing memory!  Look for more information as June 9th approaches.  Until then, mark your calendars!

    Live House Celebration – (June 10th at 9:30 AM)

         On the last day of school, we will hold a live House Celebration.  While we are still not able to bring everyone together into our Gym, we do plan to broadcast our ceremony live to our classrooms and students/families.  Two of the highlights associated with this celebration are the revealing of our House of the Year (the house with the most points), and our Bear of the Year (A student who best embodies our school’s Vital 40).  Both of these recognitions are Huge Deal!  Help s to celebrate awesomeness together.  Look for a link to be shared as June 10th approaches.

    Moncure’s 3rd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge (Weekly Update)

    (Students who meet their Lexia and Dream Snow Cone and/or Water Balloon requirements will be given their incentives on June 10th, between 12:00 PM and 1:45 PM)

         We have officially reached the final week of our Lexia and Dreambox challenge.  Not only can participation points affect our House of the Year standings, student participation may determine whether your children receive their Snow Cone or Water balloons on the final day of school.  I tell our students all the time… “You do your part, we will do ours!”  The Snow Cone Truck has been ordered and the water balloons are ready to be filled.  Our students simply need to meet their Lexia Target 5 out of the 6 week challenge and complete 5 lessons in Dreambox for 5 of the 6 week challenge.  I am proud of our student participation with each of these programs this year.  If you have a virtual student who has met one or both of these challenges, feel free to bring them to school on June 10th between 12:00 PM and 1:45 PM.  We would love for your to enjoy these incentives in style.   Let’s finish the 2020-21 school with amazing effort!  Thanks for your support from home!

    2021-2022 School Year - Return to Learn

         As we prepare for the 2021-22 school year, many questions exist in the community.  Moncure’s website has a Q & A Return to Learn link to answer most of your questions.     Please use this Q & A Return to Learn link to access our website. 

    Covid Vaccination Interest (for children 12 and up)

         Stafford County Public Schools is working with the Health Department and local pharmacies to establish vaccine clinics for students who are age 12 and up.  We need your help to identify the number of students who are interested in receiving a vaccine.  Please use the link below to record your interest in having your children (12 and up) vaccinated. 

    Vaccination Interest Link (for children 12 and up)

    Missing Library Books

         We need your help!  Dating back to last March, Moncure is still missing approximately $6,500 worth of library books.  We really need to re-shelf as many of these books as possible.  Please check your student’s rooms and bookshelves for any of Moncure’s library books (they will have a library bar code).  We do not have a budget to replace this quantity of books.  There are NO fines to return overdue library books! Thanks for your help! 

    Then end of the year is approaching!  What do I do with my student’s Chromebook?

         Stafford County asks that all returning students keep their Chromebook for next school year.  Fifth grade students WILL take their Chromebook to middle school. All other students will keep their devices for next year.  It is recommend that students use their Chromebook periodically throughout the summer to keep them updated.  Rising Kindergarten students will receive a new Chromebook this fall.  If your family is moving outside of Stafford County, we ask that you return your Chromebook(s) within one week of their last day.  Families that move and do not return their Chromebooks will have their devices turned off remotely.  Please help us to protect our county’s investment.  

    Textbook Returns

         Like our Library Books, we are still missing several textbooks from last March.  As they year wraps up, we must round up as many textbooks as possible.  Please help us with this difficult.  Textbooks can be turned into our office at any time.  We will do the rest.  Thanks so much! 

    “Pawsitive” and “Caught Ya” Citations

         It has been fun seeing a few more “Pawsitive” Citations sent to our students recently.  Keep up the great work Bears!   As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff too.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link  

    Have a Great Week #BEARNATION!

    Tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure (actualización semanal)

    (Los estudiantes que cumplan con los requisitos de Lexia y Dream Snow Cone y / o Water Balloon recibirán sus incentivos el 10 de Junio, entre las 12:00 PM Y la 1:45 PM)

         Hemos llegado oficialmente a la última semana de nuestro desafío Lexia y Dreambox. Los puntos de participación no solo pueden afectar nuestra clasificación de la Casa del Año, la participación de los estudiantes puede determinar si sus hijos reciben su cono de nieve o globos de agua en el último día de clases. Les digo a nuestros estudiantes todo el tiempo ... "¡Tú haz tu parte, nosotros haremos la nuestra!" Se ordenó el camión de cono de nieve y los globos de agua están listos para ser llenados. Nuestros estudiantes simplemente necesitan cumplir con su Lexia Target 5 de las 6 semanas del desafío y completar 5 lecciones en Dreambox durante 5 de las 6 semanas del desafío. Estoy orgulloso de la participación de nuestros estudiantes en cada uno de estos programas este año. Si tiene un estudiante virtual que ha superado uno o ambos de estos desafíos, no dude en traerlos a la escuela el 10 de junio entre las 12:00 p.m. y la 1:45 p.m. Nos encantaría que disfrutaras de estos incentivos con estilo. ¡Terminemos la escuela 2020-21 con un esfuerzo increíble! ¡Gracias por tu apoyo desde casa!

    2021-2022 School Year - Return to Learn

         As we prepare for the 2021-22 school year, many questions exist in the community.  Moncure’s website has a Q & A Return to Learn link to answer most of your questions.     Please use this Q & A Return to Learn link to access our website. 

    Interés de vacunación contra Covid (para niños de 12 años en adelante)

         Las Escuelas Públicas del Condado de Stafford están trabajando con el Departamento de Salud y las farmacias locales para establecer clínicas de vacunas para estudiantes de 12 años en adelante. Necesitamos su ayuda para identificar la cantidad de estudiantes que están interesados ​​en recibir una vacuna. Utilice el enlace a continuación para registrar su interés en vacunar a sus hijos (de 12 años en adelante).

    Enlace de interés de vacunación (para niños de 12 años en adelante)

    Libros de la biblioteca que faltan

         ¡Necesitamos tu ayuda! Desde marzo pasado, a Moncure todavía le faltan aproximadamente $ 6,500 en libros de la biblioteca. Realmente necesitamos volver a almacenar tantos libros como sea posible. Por favor revise las habitaciones y estanterías de sus estudiantes para ver si hay libros de la biblioteca de Moncure (tendrán un código de barras de la biblioteca). No tenemos presupuesto para reponer esta cantidad de libros. ¡NO hay multas por devolver libros vencidos de la biblioteca! ¡Gracias por tu ayuda!

    ¡Entonces se acerca el fin de año! ¿Qué hago con la Chromebook de mi alumno?

         El condado de Stafford pide que todos los estudiantes que regresan conserven su Chromebook para el próximo año escolar. Los estudiantes de quinto grado llevarán su Chromebook a la escuela intermedia. Todos los demás estudiantes conservarán sus dispositivos durante el próximo año. Se recomienda que los estudiantes usen su Chromebook periódicamente durante el verano para mantenerlos actualizados. Los estudiantes que ingresan al jardín de infantes recibirán un nuevo Chromebook este otoño. Si su familia se muda fuera del condado de Stafford, le pedimos que devuelva su (s) Chromebook (s) dentro de una semana de su último día. Las familias que se muden y no devuelven sus Chromebooks tendrán sus dispositivos apagados de forma remota. Ayúdenos a proteger la inversión de nuestro condado.

    Devoluciones de libros de texto

         Al igual que nuestros libros de la biblioteca, todavía nos faltan varios libros de texto del pasado mes de marzo. A medida que termina el año, debemos reunir tantos libros de texto como sea posible. Ayúdanos con esta dificultad. Los libros de texto se pueden entregar en nuestra oficina en cualquier momento. Nosotros haremos el resto. ¡Muchas gracias!

    Citas "Pawsitive" y "Caught Ya"

         Ha sido divertido ver algunas citas más “Pawsitive” enviadas a nuestros estudiantes recientemente. ¡Sigan con el gran trabajo Bears! Como siempre, me gustaría animar a los estudiantes y miembros de la comunidad a que reconozcan a nuestro personal con citas de “Atrapado”. También me encanta enviar sus felicitaciones a nuestro increíble personal. Si desea reconocer a uno o más miembros de nuestro personal, simplemente use este enlace.

    SOLs continue this week! (For Grades 4 and 5)

         Monday and Tuesday, Moncure’s Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will continue taking their Virginia’s SOL (Standards of Learning) assessments.  The state requires ALL SOL tests to be taken inside schools.  Below, you will find our SOL schedule.  SOL tests will begin at 9:00 AM and most students will finish by 2:00 PM. 

    Ways families can support successful testing experiences:

    1. Make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep before their SOL.
    2. Drop your student off before 9:00 AM.
    3. Make sure your student comes prepared for testing with a charged Chromebook, headphones, and two pencils.
    4. Remind your child to take his/her time during testing and to review his/her work.

    As a reminder, Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students will not receive concurrent learning on May 25, or June 7.   Hybrid Students will receive asynchronous assignments while Virtual Students are assessed and Virtual Students will receive Asynchronous assignments while Hybrid Students are assessed.  After a crazy year of COVID instruction, we simply challenge our students to give their best on these tests.  We are proud of our Moncure Bears!

    Moncure “Bear Talk” This Thursday!

    Topic: 2021-2022 School Year - Return to Learn

         As we begin to prepare for the 2021-22 school year, there are a lot of questions floating around.  This Thursday evening, we will hold a special “Bear Talk” to focus on:

    • Moncure’s 2021-22 School Hours and Instructional Day
    • Ongoing COVID Mitigation
    • Before and After Childcare
    • Plan to identify Transportation Preferences
    • Free Breakfast and Lunch
    • Chromebook availability
    • Virtual Option K12 Inc.
    • Family Commitment to Virtual K12 Inc.
    • Requirements for students to remain Virtual,
    • Timeline to select Virtual instruction school for 2021-22.

    Like our previous “Bear Talks,” we will begin Thursday’s session at 7:00 PM.  We will begin with a video led by school administration before moving to a live question and answer discussion.  Spanish captions and an interpreter will be available for our community.  We hope this session will help with family preparation for the 2021-22 school year.  Look for a 2021-22 School Year “Return to Learn” Q and A document to be posted on our website this week. 

    Covid Vaccination Interest (for children 12 and up)

         Stafford County Public Schools is working with the Health Department and local pharmacies to establish vaccine clinics for students who are age 12 and up.  We need your help to identify the number of students who are interested in receiving a vaccine.  Please use the link below to record your interest in having your children (12 and up) vaccinated. 

    Vaccination Interest Link (for children 12 and up)

    Missing Library Books

         We need your help!  Dating back to last March, Moncure is still missing approximately $6,500 worth of library books.  We really need to re-shelf as many of these books as possible.  Please check your student’s rooms and bookshelves for any of Moncure’s library books (they will have a library bar code).  We do not have a budget to replace this quantity of books.  There are NO fines to return overdue library books! Thanks for your help! 

    Then end of the year is approaching!  What do I do with my student’s Chromebook?

         Stafford County asks that all returning students keep their Chromebook for next school year.  Fifth grade students WILL take their Chromebook to middle school. All other students will keep their devices for next year.  It is recommend that students use their Chromebook periodically throughout the summer to keep them updated.  Rising Kindergarten students will receive a new Chromebook this fall.  If your family is moving outside of Stafford County, we ask that you return your Chromebook(s) within one week of their last day.  Families that move and do not return their Chromebooks will have their devices turned off remotely.  Please help us to protect our county’s investment.  

    Textbook Returns

         Like our Library Books, we are still missing several textbooks from last March.  As they year wraps up, we must round up as many textbooks as possible.  Please help us with this difficult.  Textbooks can be turned into our office at any time.  We will do the rest.  Thanks so much! 

    Moncure’s 3rd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge (Weekly Update)

         Please click on the link below to learn about our 3rd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge for this school year.  Students who have used these programs as directed HAVE made tremendous growth.  Please require your students to do these programs from home.  The Stafford County is challenging schools to assign Lexia and Dreambox daily.  As you will see in our video, students who meet their Lexia targets and complete their Dreambox lessons will have the opportunity to throw water balloons at school admin and enjoy a refreshing snow cone on June 10th.  You have to participate in order to earn these incentives.  As I like to tell our students, “If you do your part, we will do ours!”  Let’s finish the 2020-21 school with amazing effort!  Thanks for your support from home!

    “Pawsitive” and “Caught Ya” Citations

         It has been fun seeing a few more “Pawsitive” Citations sent to our students recently.  Keep up the great work Bears!   As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff too.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link

    ¡Los SOL continúan esta semana! (Para los grados 4 y 5)

         Los lunes y martes, los estudiantes de cuarto y quinto grado de Moncure seguirán tomando sus evaluaciones SOL (Estándares de aprendizaje) de Virginia. El estado requiere que TODAS las pruebas SOL se tomen dentro de las escuelas. A continuación, encontrará nuestro horario SOL. Las pruebas SOL comenzarán a las 9:00 a. M. Y la mayoría de los estudiantes terminarán a las 2:00 p. M.

    Maneras en que las familias pueden apoyar experiencias exitosas de exámenes:

    1. Asegúrese de que su hijo duerma lo suficiente antes de su SOL.
    2. Deje a su estudiante antes de las 9:00 AM.
    3. Asegúrese de que su estudiante venga preparado para la prueba con un Chromebook cargado, auriculares y dos lápices.
    4. Recuérdele a su hijo que se tome su tiempo durante la prueba y que revise su trabajo.

    Como recordatorio, los estudiantes de tercer, cuarto y quinto grado no recibirán aprendizaje simultáneo el 25 de mayo o el 7 de junio. Los estudiantes híbridos recibirán asignaciones asincrónicas mientras se evalúan los estudiantes virtuales y los estudiantes virtuales recibirán asignaciones asincrónicas mientras se evalúan los estudiantes híbridos. Después de un año loco de instrucción COVID, simplemente desafiamos a nuestros estudiantes a dar lo mejor de sí mismos en estas pruebas. ¡Estamos orgullosos de nuestros Moncure Bears!

    Moncure "Bear Talk" este jueves!

    Tema: Año escolar 2021-2022 - Volver a aprender

         A medida que comenzamos a prepararnos para el año escolar 2021-22, hay muchas preguntas flotando. Este jueves por la noche, realizaremos una "Charla del oso" especial para enfocarnos en:

    • Horario escolar y día de instrucción 2021-22 de Moncure
    • Mitigación continua de COVID
    • Antes y después de la guardería
    • Plan para identificar las preferencias de transporte
    • Desayuno y almuerzo gratuitos
    • Disponibilidad de Chromebook
    • Opción virtual K12 Inc.
    • Compromiso familiar con Virtual K12 Inc.
    • Requisitos para que los estudiantes sigan siendo virtuales,
    • Cronograma para seleccionar la escuela de instrucción virtual para 2021-22.

    Como en nuestras anteriores "Charlas sobre osos", comenzaremos la sesión del jueves a las 7:00 p. M. Comenzaremos con un video dirigido por la administración de la escuela antes de pasar a una discusión en vivo de preguntas y respuestas. Habrá subtítulos en español y un intérprete disponibles para nuestra comunidad. Esperamos que esta sesión ayude con la preparación familiar para el año escolar 2021-22. Busque un documento de preguntas y respuestas de “Regreso para aprender” del año escolar 2021-22 que se publicará en nuestro sitio web esta semana.

    Tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure (actualización semanal)

         Haga clic en el enlace a continuación para conocer nuestro tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox para este año escolar. Los estudiantes que han utilizado estos programas como se les indicó HAN progresado enormemente. Solicite a sus estudiantes que realicen estos programas desde casa. El condado de Stafford está desafiando a las escuelas a asignar Lexia y Dreambox diariamente. Como verá en nuestro video, los estudiantes que cumplan con sus objetivos de Lexia y completen sus lecciones de Dreambox tendrán la oportunidad de lanzar globos de agua al administrador de la escuela y disfrutar de un refrescante cono de nieve el 10 de Junio. Tienes que participar para ganar estos incentivos. Como me gusta decirles a nuestros estudiantes, "¡Si ustedes hacen su parte, nosotros haremos la nuestra!" ¡Terminemos la escuela 2020-21 con un esfuerzo increíble! ¡Gracias por tu apoyo desde casa!

    SOL Testing begins This Week! (For Grades 3-5)

         Beginning tomorrow, Moncure’s Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will begin taking their Virginia’s SOL (Standards of Learning) assessments.  The state requires ALL SOL tests to be taken inside schools.  Below, you will find our SOL schedule.  SOL tests will begin at 9:00 AM and most students will finish by 2:00 PM. 

    Ways families can support successful testing experiences:

    1. Make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep before their SOL.
    2. Drop your student off before 9:00 AM.
    3. Make sure your student comes prepared for testing with a charged Chromebook, headphones, and two pencils.
    4. Remind your child to take his/her time during testing and to review his/her work.

          As a reminder, Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students will not receive concurrent learning on May 18, May 25, or June 7.   Hybrid Students will receive asynchronous assignments while Virtual Students are assessed and Virtual Students will receive Asynchronous assignments while Hybrid Students are assessed.  After a crazy year of COVID instruction, we simply challenge our students to give their best on these tests.  We are proud of our Moncure Bears! 

    Anne E. Moncure E.S. Spring 2021 - Testing Schedule  

    (Moncure’s testing schedule has been adjusted due to the June 8th Primary Election.  Monday, June 7th is now 9AM-2PM instructional day and Tuesday, June 8th is an asynchronous day.) 

    Virtual students in grades 3-5 will now take their Math SOL on June 8th.

    1. Asegúrese de que su hijo duerma lo suficiente antes de su SOL.
    2. Deje a su estudiante antes de las 9:00 AM.
    3. Asegúrese de que su estudiante venga preparado para la prueba con un Chromebook cargado, auriculares y dos lápices.

Los estudiantes híbridos recibirán asignaciones asincrónicas mientras se evalúa a los estudiantes virtuales y los estudiantes virtuales recibirán asignaciones asincrónicas mientras que los estudiantes híbridos juzgado. Después de un año loco de instrucción COVID, simplemente desafiamos a nuestros estudiantes a dar lo mejor de sí mismos en estas pruebas. ¡Estamos orgullosos de nuestros Moncure Bears!

    Tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure (actualización semanal) 

         Haga clic en el enlace a continuación para conocer nuestro tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox para este año escolar. Los estudiantes que han utilizado estos programas como se les indicó HAN progresado enormemente. Solicite a sus estudiantes que realicen estos programas desde casa. El condado de Stafford está desafiando a las escuelas a asignar Lexia y Dreambox diariamente. Como verá en nuestro video, los estudiantes que cumplan con sus objetivos de Lexia y completen sus lecciones de Dreambox tendrán la oportunidad de lanzar globos de agua al administrador de la escuela y disfrutar de un refrescante cono de nieve el 10 de Junio. Tienes que participar para ganar estos incentivos. Como me gusta decirles a nuestros estudiantes, "¡Si ustedes hacen su parte, nosotros haremos la nuestra!" ¡Terminemos la escuela 2020-21 con un esfuerzo increíble! ¡Gracias por tu apoyo desde casa!

         Have you heard?  Dr. Kizner announced this past Thursday that the official last day of the 2020-21 school year will be Thursday, June 10th.  The reason for this change is to compensate for a very short upcoming summer.  Please make plans now.  June 10th will be here soon.

         Beginning May 17th, Moncure’s Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will begin taking Virginia’s SOL (Standards of Learning) assessments.  The state requires ALL SOL tests to be given inside school buildings.  The schedule below displays Moncure’s upcoming testing schedule.  Virtual students who requested bus transportation will be provided with bus stop, pick-up and drop-off times through email this week.  It is very important that students arrive before 9AM on testing days.  As a reminder, Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students will not receive concurrent learning on May 18, May 25, or June 7.   Hybrid Students will receive asynchronous assignments while Virtual Students are assessed and Virtual Students will receive Asynchronous assignments while Hybrid Students are assessed.  For more information, we encourage Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade families to follow the schedule below, contact our office, or access our Bear Talk link below for SOL testing and preparation information.

    June 7th and June 8th Schedule Change

         If you read Dr. Kizner’s Friday letter, you may have noticed that a primary election is altering Stafford County’s calendar.  To reduce the impact of the election on schools, Monday, June 7th will now be a regular 9AM-2PM school day and Tuesday, June 8th will now be an Asynchronous learning day.  Unfortunately, this causes additional changes to our SOL testing schedule.  For more information about our SOL Schedule, please see below. 

    *Revised* SOL Testing Schedule (For Grades 3-5)

         Moncure’s Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will be taking Virginia’s SOL (Standards of Learning) assessments this spring.  The state requires SOL tests to be given inside school buildings.  The schedule below displays our upcoming testing schedule.  Virtual students will be offered transportation for their testing sessions.  For more information, we encourage third, fourth, and fifth grade families to access our Bear Talk link below for SOL testing and preparation information. 

    Link to previous “Bear Talks.”

    (Moncure’s testing schedule has been adjusted due to the June 8th Primary Election.  Monday, June 7th is now 9AM-2PM instructional day and Tuesday, June 8th is an asynchronous day.) 

    Virtual students in grades 3-5 will now take their Math SOL on June 8th.

    Student Drop-Offs and Pick-Ups

         Moncure’s Car Rider line has rapidly grown since our latest schedule change.  Unfortunately, we need parent assistance to ensure that instructional time is not interrupted by late drop-offs and/or early pickups.  Should your student arrive after 9AM, please drop your student off through the main office.  To stop an influx of early afternoon pick-ups and classroom disruptions, we will no longer release students through the office between 1:45PM and 2:15PM.  We ask that parents simply use our car rider line as intended.  Adding additional confusions to the end of the day only increase the risk for students to go home incorrectly.  Your understanding is appreciated. 

    Moncure’s 3rd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge is Here!!!

         Please click on the link below to learn about our final Lexia and Dreambox Challenge for this school year.  Our students who have used these programs as directed HAVE made tremendous growth.  Please require your students to do these programs from home.  Although we have recently added 2 hours to our school day, the county is still challenging schools to assign Lexia and Dreambox daily.  As you will see in our video, students who meet their Lexia targets and complete their Dreambox lessons will have the opportunity to throw water balloons at school admin this spring and enjoy a refreshing snow cone.  You have to participate in order to earn these incentives.  As I like to tell our students, “If you do your part, we will do ours!”  Let’s finish the 2020-21 school with amazing effort!  Thanks for your support from home!

    7 de Junio y 8 de Junio Cambio de horario

         Si leyó la carta del viernes del Dr. Kizner, es posible que haya notado que una elección primaria está alterando el calendario del condado de Stafford. Para reducir el impacto de la elección en las escuelas, el lunes 7 de Junio ahora será un día escolar regular de 9 a.m. a 2 p.m. y el martes 8 de Junio será un día de aprendizaje asincrónico. Desafortunadamente, esto provoca cambios adicionales en nuestro programa de pruebas SOL. Para obtener más información sobre nuestro programa SOL, consulte a continuación.

    *Programa Revisado* de pruebas de SOL (para los grados 3-5)

         Los estudiantes de tercer, cuarto y quinto grado de Moncure tomarán las evaluaciones SOL (Estándares de aprendizaje) de Virginia esta primavera. El estado requiere que las pruebas SOL se administren dentro de los edificios escolares. El programa a continuación muestra nuestro próximo programa de pruebas. A los estudiantes virtuales se les ofrecerá transporte para sus sesiones de evaluación. Para obtener más información, animamos a las familias de tercer, cuarto y quinto grado a que accedan a nuestro enlace Bear Talk a continuación para obtener información sobre la preparación y las pruebas de SOL.

    Dejar y recoger a los estudiantes

         La línea Car Rider de Moncure ha crecido rápidamente desde nuestro último cambio de horario. Desafortunadamente, necesitamos la ayuda de los padres para asegurar que el tiempo de instrucción no sea interrumpido por llegadas tardías y / o recogidas tempranas. Si su estudiante llega después de las 9 AM, por favor deje a su estudiante en la oficina principal. Para detener la afluencia de recogidas temprano en la tarde y las interrupciones en el aula, ya no dejaremos a los estudiantes en la oficina entre las 1:45 PM. y las 2:15 PM Les pedimos a los padres que simplemente utilicen nuestra línea de usuarios de automóviles como se espera. Agregar confusiones adicionales al final del día solo aumenta el riesgo de que los estudiantes se vayan a casa incorrectamente. Se agradece su comprensión. 

    ¡¡¡Ya está aquí el tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure !!!    

         Haga clic en el enlace a continuación para conocer nuestro último desafío Lexia y Dreambox para este año escolar.

    Hello Moncure Families!

         Thanks for the great week!   The combination of our lengthened day, our increased number of hybrid students, and concurrent teaching was a positive experience.  As a reminder, for planning, preparation, and COVID mitigation reasons, we cannot allow students to make their own fluctuating hybrid or virtual schedules.  Please stick to your requested instructional format.  If you are sick, you are sick.  Moncure’s staff is preparing materials and instruction to meet individual hybrid and 100% virtual preferences.  Thanks for your understanding. 

         Topics for the week include information about this week’s specials and lunch menu, the availability of 3rd quarter report cards on ParentVue, the introduction of our final Lexia and Dreambox challenge, and a reminder about our upcoming SOLs for third, fourth, and fifth graders.  Thanks for your support and partnership.  I appreciate the help!

         Please click on the link below to learn about our final Lexia and Dreambox Challenge for this school year.  While we are happy with our school’s participation, we continue to have approximately 40% of our students not accessing these programs.  We need to shrink this number!  Parents, we need your help here!  Our students who have used these programs as directed HAVE made tremendous growth.  Please require your students to do these programs from home.  Although we have recently added 2 hours to our school day, the county is still challenging schools to assign Lexia and Dreambox daily.  As you will see in the video below, students who meet their Lexia targets and complete their Dreambox lessons will have the opportunity to throw water balloons at school admin this spring and enjoy a refreshing snow cone.  You have to participate in order to earn these incentives.  As I like to tell our students, “If you do your part, we will do ours!”  Let’s finish the 2020-21 school with amazing effort!  Thanks for your support from home!

    ¡Hola familias de Moncure!

         ¡Gracias por la gran semana! La combinación de nuestro día prolongado, nuestro mayor número de estudiantes híbridos y la enseñanza simultánea fue una experiencia positiva. Como recordatorio, por razones de planificación, preparación y mitigación de COVID, no podemos permitir que los estudiantes hagan sus propios horarios híbridos o virtuales fluctuantes. Cíñete al formato de instrucción solicitado. Si está enfermo, está enfermo. El personal de Moncure está preparando materiales e instrucciones para satisfacer las preferencias individuales híbridas y 100% virtuales. Gracias por su comprensión.

         Los temas de la semana incluyen información sobre los especiales y el menú del almuerzo de esta semana, la disponibilidad de las boletas de calificaciones del tercer trimestre en ParentVue, la introducción de nuestro desafío final Lexia y Dreambox, y un recordatorio sobre nuestros próximos SOL para estudiantes de tercer, cuarto y quinto grado. Gracias por su apoyo y colaboración. ¡Agradezco la ayuda!

    ¡¡¡Ya está aquí el tercer desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure !!!

         Haga clic en el enlace a continuación para conocer nuestro último desafío Lexia y Dreambox para este año escolar. Si bien estamos contentos con la participación de nuestra escuela, seguimos teniendo aproximadamente el 40% de nuestros estudiantes que no acceden a estos programas. ¡Necesitamos reducir este número! ¡Padres, necesitamos su ayuda aquí! Nuestros estudiantes que han usado estos programas como se les indicó HAN tenido un crecimiento tremendo. Solicite a sus estudiantes que realicen estos programas desde casa. Aunque recientemente hemos agregado 2 horas a nuestro día escolar, el condado todavía está desafiando a las escuelas a asignar Lexia y Dreambox diariamente. Como verá en el video a continuación, los estudiantes que cumplan con sus objetivos de Lexia y completen sus lecciones de Dreambox tendrán la oportunidad de lanzar globos de agua al administrador de la escuela esta primavera y disfrutar de un refrescante cono de nieve. Tienes que participar para ganar estos incentivos. Como me gusta decirles a nuestros estudiantes, "¡Si ustedes hacen su parte, nosotros haremos la nuestra!" ¡Terminemos la escuela 2020-21 con un esfuerzo increíble! ¡Gracias por tu apoyo desde casa!

    MES – Weekly Communication (April 18)  /  MES - Comunicación semanal (18 de Abril)

    Hello Moncure Families!

         What a beautiful weekend!  Our new schedule begins this week!  As a reminder, ALL students must complete asynchronous work on Mondays for school attendance, and students need to join our teachers through their indicated hybrid or 100% virtual manner Tuesday through Friday, 9AM-2PM.  For planning, preparation, and COVID mitigation reasons, we will NOT allow students to make their own fluctuating hybrid or virtual schedules.  Please stick to your requested instructional format.  Moncure’s staff is preparing materials and instruction to meet individual hybrid and 100% virtual preferences.  Consistency is important for staff and students.  Thanks!

         Other topics for the week include information about a community giveaway, this week’s lunch menu, a follow-up to Dr. Kizner’s recess and temperature check email from Friday, and a few other topics.  Our final Lexia and Dreambox challenge for the year will begin next Monday.  Look for more information later this week.  Until then, please encourage your students to use Lexia and Dreambox for additional practice.  Students who have used these programs all year have made tremendous growth.  Conversely, the data does not lie for the 30-40% of our students who are not using these programs.  Even with our new extended day, we are still have two fewer hours with your kiddos than last year.  Let’s get ALL of our bears on these programs for just 20 minutes each day.  That is still less than a normal school day and well worth the individualized practice.  Thanks for your support and partnership.  I appreciate the help!

    This Week’s Lunch Menu  (April 20-23)

         All students will be offered a FREE Lunch and a Breakfast to take home for the next morning daily.  Students may decline a meal at any time. 

    TUESDAY

    WEDNESDAY

    THURSDAY

    FRIDAY

    Breaded Popcorn Chicken

    Big Daddy Cheese Pizza

    Cheeseburger

    Chicken and Waffles


    Bus and Car Rider Information

         As of Friday afternoon, we were only down to 6 car riders without numbers and 1 bus rider without bus stop information.  If you do not have this information, please contact our office tomorrow.  As a reminder, students without car rider numbers WILL NOT be dismissed through our Car Rider Line on April 20th.   We appreciate your help and understanding as we prepare for a safe afternoon dismissal.  Thanks!

    “Mask Up Moncure!”

         As we welcome several more bears back to our building, several of our staff members created a quick video to remind all students how to properly wear a mask.  We hope you will share this video with your Moncure Bear.  Mask Up Moncure Video

    Temperature Checks and Playground Equipment Use

         As you may have read in Dr. Kizner’s Friday email, the county is allowing schools to ease up on temperature checks and to organize the use of playground equipment.  I would like to take a moment to explain how Moncure will be moving forward with these two changes.  First, although Moncure is allowed to discontinue our daily temperature checks, we believe our current process and staffing allows us to continue temperature checks with minimal disruption.  Therefore, we will continue to do so for the remainder of this 2020-21 school year.   Unfortunately, movement breaks are an entirely different story.  While our teachers will be incorporating 15-minute movement breaks into our schedule, we will only be coordinating the use of our playground equipment for classroom incentives.  With 39 classrooms, the management aspect of spraying down and allowing dry time for every touchable surface will far exceed the amount of time that individual classes would be allowed to use our equipment.  We will work with teachers to create special incentives for playground equipment use.  Unfortunately, it will not be every day.  We hope this makes sense.  

    SOL Testing (For Grades 3-5)

         Moncure’s Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade students will be taking Virginia’s SOL (Standards of Learning) assessments this spring.  The state requires SOL tests to be given inside school buildings.  The schedule below displays our upcoming testing schedule.  Virtual students will be offered transportation for their testing sessions on Mondays.  For more information, we encourage third, fourth, and fifth grade families to access our Bear Talk link below for SOL testing and preparation information.

    ¡Hola familias de Moncure!

         ¡Qué hermoso fin de semana! ¡Nuestro nuevo horario comienza esta semana! Como recordatorio, TODOS los estudiantes deben completar el trabajo asincrónico los lunes para asistir a la escuela, y los estudiantes deben unirse a nuestros maestros a través de su forma híbrida o 100% virtual indicada de martes a viernes, de 9 a.m. a 2 p.m. Por razones de planificación, preparación y mitigación de COVID, NO permitiremos que los estudiantes hagan sus propios horarios híbridos o virtuales fluctuantes. Cíñete al formato de instrucción solicitado. El personal de Moncure está preparando materiales e instrucciones para satisfacer las preferencias individuales híbridas y 100% virtuales. La consistencia es importante para el personal y los estudiantes. ¡Gracias!

         Otros temas de la semana incluyen información sobre un sorteo comunitario, el menú del almuerzo de esta semana, un seguimiento del correo electrónico de revisión de temperatura y recreo del Dr. Kizner del viernes, y algunos otros temas. Nuestro último desafío de Lexia y Dreambox para el año comenzará el próximo lunes. Busque más información más adelante esta semana. Hasta entonces, anime a sus estudiantes a usar Lexia y Dreambox para practicar más. Los estudiantes que han utilizado estos programas durante todo el año han tenido un gran crecimiento. Por el contrario, los datos no mienten para el 30-40% de nuestros estudiantes que no utilizan estos programas. Incluso con nuestro nuevo día extendido, todavía tenemos dos horas menos con sus hijos que el año pasado. Pongamos a TODOS nuestros osos en estos programas durante solo 20 minutos cada día. Eso es todavía menos que un día escolar normal y bien vale la pena la práctica individualizada. Gracias por su apoyo y colaboración. ¡Agradezco la ayuda! 

    Menú de almuerzo de esta semana (20-23 de Abril)

         A todos los estudiantes se les ofrecerá un almuerzo y un desayuno GRATIS para llevar a casa a la mañana siguiente todos los días. Los estudiantes pueden rechazar una comida en cualquier momento. 

    MARTES

    JUEVES

    VIERNES

    Información para pasajeros de autobús y automóvil

         A partir del viernes por la tarde, solo teníamos 6 pasajeros en automóvil sin números y 1 pasajero de autobús sin información de parada de autobús. Si no tiene esta información, comuníquese con nuestra oficina mañana. Como recordatorio, los estudiantes que no tengan un número de pasajero en automóvil NO serán despedidos a través de nuestra Línea de Pasajeros en Automóvil el 20 de abril. Agradecemos su ayuda y comprensión mientras nos preparamos para una salida segura por la tarde. ¡Gracias! 

    “Mask Up Moncure!”

         Mientras damos la bienvenida a varios osos más a nuestro edificio, varios miembros de nuestro personal crearon un video rápido para recordar a todos los estudiantes cómo usar una máscara correctamente. Esperamos que comparta este video con su Moncure Bear.  Mask Up Moncure Video 

    Comprobaciones de temperatura y uso de equipos en el patio de recreo

         Como puede haber leído en el correo electrónico del viernes del Dr. Kizner, el condado está permitiendo que las escuelas reduzcan los controles de temperatura y organicen el uso del equipo del patio de recreo. Me gustaría tomarme un momento para explicar cómo Moncure avanzará con estos dos cambios. Primero, aunque a Moncure se le permite descontinuar nuestros controles diarios de temperatura, creemos que nuestro proceso actual y nuestra dotación de personal nos permiten continuar con los controles de temperatura con una interrupción mínima. Por lo tanto, continuaremos haciéndolo durante el resto de este año escolar 2020-21. Desafortunadamente, las pausas de movimiento son una historia completamente diferente. Si bien nuestros maestros incorporarán descansos de movimiento de 15 minutos en nuestro horario, solo coordinaremos el uso de nuestro equipo de patio de recreo para incentivos en el aula. Con 39 aulas, el aspecto de gestión de rociar y dejar secar cada superficie táctil superará con creces la cantidad de tiempo que se permitiría a las clases individuales usar nuestro equipo. Trabajaremos con los maestros para crear incentivos especiales para el uso del equipo del patio de recreo. Desafortunadamente, no será todos los días. Esperamos que esto tenga sentido.

    Prueba SOL (para grados 3-5)

         Los estudiantes de tercer, cuarto y quinto grado de Moncure tomarán las evaluaciones SOL (Estándares de aprendizaje) de Virginia esta primavera. El estado requiere que las pruebas SOL se administren dentro de los edificios escolares. El programa a continuación muestra nuestro próximo programa de pruebas.

         This Thursday, we will host our final “Bear Talk” of the year.  Our April 15th session targets families with students in third, fourth, and fifth grades and will specifically focus on SOL Testing Schedules, What does an SOL Test look like?, Successful Testing Strategies, SOL Tools, SOL Preparation and Practice, and The importance of a good night’s sleep before a test.  We will lead this week’s session through videos and live question and answer discussions.  As always, we will do our best to keep all sessions to 30 minutes or less.  Spanish captions and an interpreter will also be available for all sessions.  We hope you can join us!

    Moncure’s 2nd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge

         We have reached the end of our second Lexia and Dreambox challenge.  Check out our participation numbers from the past 6 weeks.  This Friday, we will use our House Celebration to announce our top Lexia and Dreambox students and classrooms.  While this current challenge is over, I ask parents to continue to push your students work on these programs independently.  While the growth of our students has been exceptional, we still have several students who need additional practice to reach their appropriate grade levels.  The work cannot stop now!    We still have 10 weeks of school to go!  Thanks for your partnership.

    House Celebration - Friday, April 16th

         It is time for another House Celebration. This Friday, we will release a link to a newly recorded celebration.  During this celebration, we will recognize another round of students from each House, spin our wheel for additional House points, reveal our top Lexia and Dreambox students, and draw student names to receive new digital tablets.  Looking over our current enrollment, we still have 44 students who have NOT spun our wheel to become a member of a House.  If your student has not spun our wheel, please bring them by our school between 9:00-4:00 daily.  We love cheering new students as they spin our wheel.  Go Bears! 

     “Pawsitive” and “Caught Ya” Citations

         It has been fun seeing a few more “Pawsitive” Citations sent to our students recently.  Keep up the great work Bears!   As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff too.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link  

    Have a Great Week #BEARNATION! 

     

     

    ¡Hola familias de Moncure!

         Espero encontrar a todos bien. Nuestros temas para la semana incluyen un recordatorio sobre el cambio de horario de la próxima semana, compartir nuestro plan para comunicar información de autobuses y paradas de autobús, proporcionar información adicional sobre las pruebas SOL de primavera, presentar los temas de nuestra última "Charla del oso", actualizar nuestro uso de Lexia y Dreambox, y anunciar el lanzamiento de YouTube de nuestra próxima "celebración de la casa" este viernes a la 1PM. Gracias por su apoyo y colaboración. ¡Que tengas una buena semana!!

    ¡Programa de esta semana! (del 12 al 16 de Abril)

         Como recordatorio, nuestro condado ha realizado los siguientes cambios de horario para proporcionar a las escuelas tiempo adicional para mover muebles y prepararse para nuestros estudiantes adicionales y el nuevo horario el 20 de abril. ¡Marque sus calendarios!

    • Lunes 12 de Abril - Día de aprendizaje asincrónico (tendremos reuniones matutinas)
    • Martes 13 de Abril - Grupo A (9 a. M. A 12 p. M.) Y Grupo B (2 p. M. A 4 p. M.)

     20 de abril Cambio de horario

    (siguiendo nuestros formatos de instrucción seleccionados y aprendiendo más sobre nuestro nuevo horario)

         A medida que se acerca el cambio de horario del 20 de abril, es muy importante que todos sepan qué esperar. A partir de la próxima semana, se espera que TODOS los estudiantes completen el trabajo asincrónico los lunes para la asistencia a la escuela, y se espera que los estudiantes se unan a nuestros maestros a través de su manera híbrida o 100% virtual indicada de martes a viernes, de 9 a.m. a 2 p.m. Por razones de planificación, preparación y mitigación de COVID, NO permitiremos que los estudiantes hagan su propio horario híbrido o virtual fluctuante. La consistencia es importante para el personal y los estudiantes. Cíñete al formato de instrucción solicitado. Para eso se está preparando nuestro personal. Si todavía está confundido acerca del aprendizaje concurrente y nuestro nuevo horario, le recomiendo que acceda al video y las presentaciones de Bear Talk a continuación. Como siempre, no dude en comunicarse con nuestra escuela si tiene preguntas adicionales.

    20 de abril Cambio de horario (información para los pasajeros de autobuses y automóviles)

         Se ha informado a las escuelas que TODAS las asignaciones de autobuses se están analizando nuevamente para utilizar mejor los recursos de transporte de nuestro condado. Los números de autobús y los horarios de recogida pueden cambiar para algunos de nuestros estudiantes. A partir de las 6:00 p.m. del domingo por la noche, Moncure no ha recibido ninguna información actualizada sobre el autobús. Una vez que recibamos la información actualizada del autobús, enviaremos un correo electrónico y un mensaje de texto a todas las familias. El personal de Moncure actualizará todas las etiquetas de los autobuses de los estudiantes el 20 de abril. A nuestras familias de conductores de automóviles ... Si tiene un número, está listo. Las familias que planean usar nuestra salida de pasajeros en automóvil que NO tienen un número, comuníquese con nuestra oficina lo antes posible. Las familias que no tengan un número de pasajero en automóvil NO serán despedidas a través de nuestra Línea de pasajeros en automóvil el 20 de abril. Agradecemos su ayuda y comprensión mientras nos preparamos para una salida segura por la tarde. ¡Gracias!

El estado requiere que las pruebas SOL se administren dentro de los edificios escolares. El programa a continuación muestra nuestro próximo programa de pruebas. A los estudiantes virtuales se les ofrecerá transporte para sus sesiones de prueba los lunes.

    Segundo desafío Lexia y Dreambox de Moncure

         Hemos llegado al final de nuestro segundo desafío Lexia y Dreambox. Consulte nuestros números de participación de las últimas 6 semanas. Este viernes, usaremos nuestra celebración de la casa para anunciar a nuestros mejores estudiantes y aulas de Lexia y Dreambox. Si bien este desafío actual terminó, les pido a los padres que sigan presionando a sus estudiantes para que trabajen en estos programas de forma independiente. Si bien el crecimiento de nuestros estudiantes ha sido excepcional, todavía tenemos varios estudiantes que necesitan práctica adicional para alcanzar sus niveles de grado apropiados. ¡El trabajo no puede detenerse ahora! ¡Aún nos quedan 10 semanas de clases! Gracias por tu colaboración.

    Celebración de la casa - Viernes 16 de Abril

         Es hora de otra celebración en la casa. Este viernes, lanzaremos un enlace a una celebración recién grabada. Durante esta celebración, reconoceremos a otra ronda de estudiantes de cada Casa, giraremos nuestra rueda para obtener puntos adicionales de la Casa, revelaremos a nuestros mejores estudiantes de Lexia y Dreambox y sacaremos los nombres de los estudiantes para recibir nuevas tabletas digitales. Mirando nuestra inscripción actual, todavía tenemos 44 estudiantes que NO han hecho girar nuestra rueda para convertirse en miembros de una Cámara. Si su estudiante no ha hecho girar nuestra rueda, por favor tráigalo a nuestra escuela entre las 9: 00-4: 00 todos los días. Nos encanta animar a los nuevos estudiantes mientras hacen girar nuestra rueda. ¡Vamos osos!

    Citas "Pawsitive" y "Caught Ya"

         Ha sido divertido ver algunas citas más “Pawsitive” enviadas a nuestros estudiantes recientemente. ¡Sigan con el gran trabajo Bears! Como siempre, me gustaría animar a los estudiantes y miembros de la comunidad a que reconozcan a nuestro personal con citas de “Atrapado”. También me encanta enviar sus felicitaciones a nuestro increíble personal. Si desea reconocer a uno o más miembros de nuestro personal, simplemente use este enlace.

Los números de autobús y los horarios de recogida pueden cambiar para algunos de nuestros estudiantes. Tan pronto como recibamos esta información actualizada del autobús, enviaremos nuevas postales de transporte por correo. Es nuestra intención actualizar todas las etiquetas de los autobuses de los estudiantes el 20 de abril. A nuestras familias de conductores de automóviles ... Si tiene un número, está listo. Si no tiene un número, busque un correo electrónico de registro de conductor de automóvil pronto. Se les pedirá a las familias que no tengan un número de pasajero en automóvil que ingresen a nuestro edificio el 20 de abril para registrarse apropiadamente. Agradecemos su ayuda mientras nos esforzamos por mantener seguros a todos los estudiantes.

    Hello Moncure Families!

         I hope everyone enjoyed our Spring Break!  Between now and our last day of school(, we have a lot to do. April 20th marks an important change for schools across Stafford County.  It marks the date when we will begin our 9AM-2PM, Tuesday through Friday schedule.  If we have not heard from you about your Hybrid or 100% Virtual preference from that date moving forward, we need to hear from you by TOMORROW (March 21st) at 4PM.  For more information, please see below.  Thanks for your help! 

         We are half way through our second Dreambox and Lexia challenge. While we did not expect our kiddos to work on these programs over Spring Break, we do ask for parents to support this online practice again, beginning Monday, March 22nd.  Thanks!   We will not have a “Bear Talk” this week!  To learn more about our next three “Bear Talks,” please see below.  With our weather finally turning to spring, I ask that parents monitor their student’s work completion.  A successful home-school partnership is important!   Have a great week! 

    SCPS Initiative to Increase Learning Time and

    Get More Students in School

         As you are aware, effective April 20th, Stafford County Schools are increasing our instructional days.  Moncure’s instructional day will run from 9AM-2PM, Tuesday through Friday.  We have been asked us to survey our community for current Hybrid and 100% Virtual preferences.  Prior to Spring Break, we attempted to reach all of our families through email, texts, and phone calls.  To date, we have only received updates for approximately 550 of our 839 students.  With scheduling, teacher shifts, and transportation arrangements to be made, TOMORROW (March 22nd) is the last day to request a change to Hybrid or 100% Virtual instructional modes as well as request Stafford County transportation changes.  While our student spacing is being reduced to a minimum of 3 feet, we still have several restrictions that effect lunch spacing and bus seating.  Families who do not request a Hybrid, 100% Virtual instructional change, or transportation changes by 4PM tomorrow will continue with their same modes of instruction and transportation the week of April 20th.  Regardless, ALL students will begin our 4-Day Schedule during the week of April 20th.    If you have not shared your preference for this upcoming change, you can either use the link below or contact our school tomorrow.  We appreciate your help!

    Hello Moncure Families!

         I hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful weekend!  As our weather turns warm and we kick off Spring Break this Friday, it is exciting to know that Spring around the corner. As always, I have a few things to share.  Today, I will share an update on our expanded instructional day and in-person learning initiative, give a glimpse at this week’s “Bear Talk,” and update everyone on last week’s Dreambox and Lexia Usage.  With so many changes around the corner again, I simply want to keep everyone informed.  Thanks for your support and partnership.  Have a great week! 

    (An Update) SCPS Initiative to Increase Learning Time and

    Get More Students in School

         As I mentioned previously, beginning the week of April 20th, Stafford County’s School Board and Superintendent, Dr. Kizner, has asked elementary schools to use our recently supplied technology to increase teacher-led instructional time and Hybrid capacity / enrollment by reducing our student’s separation from 6 feet to 3 feet.  With this capacity change, it is anticipated that we will be able to provide four days of concurrent instruction (100% Virtual and Hybrid at the same time) to all students four days each week.  A significant update to this plan was made this past week, as we were also asked to add two hours to each instructional day.  With this change, effective April 20th, all students will now be required to attend school (whether they are 100% Virtual or Hybrid) between 9AM-2PM, Tuesday-Friday.  With this extended day, students can also expect to have live specials integrated back into their day and expanded teacher-led learning blocks will allow teachers to provide additional instructional time. Due to the length of our day, a lunch break will be provided into our future schedule.  While it is possible that some teacher changes will be necessary to stay within classroom capacity limits, it is my goal to keep student movement to a minimum.  It has been a crazy year with many changes.   As our world begins to heal, we too must heal.  One exciting piece to this change is that we will reduce homework expectations to completing unfinished classwork, Lexia and Dreambox.  Look for a survey early this week to gather your input for moving forward.  The county has set a deadline of March 29th to gather all information.  Please help us to spread this word.  With a school our size, it is very difficult to make 850 phone calls.  Thanks for your flexibility and understanding.   With the exception of our SOL testing schedule, we are all wishful that this will be our final shift this year. 

    Moncure’s “Bear Talk” Series (This Thursday!)

         I would like to thank our families who attended our recent “Bear Talk” Technology session. Our series will continue this Thursday as we return our focus to Math.  Specifically, we will focus on “Pawsitively” Positive Experiences on the Path to Fact Fluency.  Our “Bear Talk” will be led by our specialists with video explanations and live question and answer discussions.  A Spanish interpreter will be available.  We will do our best to keep to 30 minutes.  We hope you will join us on Thursday from 7:00–7:30 PM.  If you have missed our previous “Bear Talk” sessions, you can access our videos through our website or the following link.  Thanks for learning together!  Link to previous “Bear Talks.”

    WIDA Testing

         Thanks for a pretty good week of WIDA testing.  Several of our students are on pace to wrap up testing this week.  If your student is scheduled to take a WIDA test, it is very important that they are present for their testing sessions.  It is also very important that WIDA students arrive on time with a CHARGED CHROMEBOOK! Thanks for your help!  We can always accomplish more when we work together.

         Thanks again for your amazing partnership!  We have a busy few weeks ahead.  As we seek to gather information for our April 20th instructional shift, please be on the lookout for a survey to help us meet everyone’s desired needs. With a short deadline to connect with all families, we appreciate your help.  Changes are difficult for parents and schools.  We appreciate your help and understanding.  

    Have a Great Week #BEARNATION!

    Hello Moncure Families!

         I hope I am finding everyone well.  As you may have read in Dr. Kizner’s message this past Friday, I have a couple of important instructional topics for this week as well as a rescheduled Picture Day reminder, and a look at our current Lexia and Dreambox challenge.  There is a lot to read below.  Thanks for “Bearing” with me and being an amazing community!  Have a great week! 

    MARCH 4th - Moncure’s Group B and Virtual Student Picture Day

         The recent winter weather forced us to reschedule our Group B and second evening for virtual student pictures.  Hybrid B students will now take pictures during the morning of March 4th and Virtual students will have an opportunity to schedule picture sessions for between 1PM and 6PM on that same date.  Photographers will follow all CDC requirements as we utilize our gym to maintain safe distancing (Lifetouch - Photography Safety Protocol).  Hybrid picture days will be much like “normal” where classes will arrive to our gym at scheduled times.  Virtual students may change or sign up for picture times through our Virtual Student Picture Sign-up.  To learn more about the format of our upcoming picture days, I invite families to watch the following video from Lifetouch.

    SCPS Initiative to Increase Learning Time and Get More Students in School

         Have you heard?  Beginning the week of April 20th, Stafford County’s School Board and Superintendent, Dr. Kizner, have asked elementary schools to use our recently supplied technology to increase teacher-led instructional time and to bring in as many students as possible (instilling a minimum of a 3 foot separation), four days each week.  Under this plan, all families and students will be asked to adjust their schedules to support a concurrent instructional format (simultaneous virtual and in-person instruction) between 9AM and 12PM each day.  In addition, classroom teachers will be asked to lead afternoon virtual Math and/or Reading small groups and specials schedules will be reworked to increase student participation.  Now that we know our county’s goal, we will be working with staff to determine new classroom capacities, bus capacity, as well as work with our transportation department to determine bus availability.  Students who currently receive virtual instruction will be given the opportunity to switch to hybrid or stay virtual.  There are a lot of logistics to be worked out and information to be collected between now and our April 20th roll-out.  Unfortunately, capacities and guidelines may restrict us from meeting all in-person requests.  As you can imagine, this is a huge task to complete.  Look for more information soon.  I only ask for your patience and understanding throughout this process.  Stafford County is committed to providing the best instruction possible during this unique time. 

    Moncure’s “Bear Talk” Series (This Thursday!)

         I would like to thank our families who attended our recent “Bear Talk” Technology session. Our series will continue this Thursday as we return our focus to Reading.  Specifically, we will focus on Reading Comprehension and Fluency.  Our “Bear Talk” will be led by our specialists with video explanations and live question and answer discussions.  A Spanish interpreter will be available.  We will do our best to keep to 30 minutes.  We hope you will join us on Thursday from 7:00–7:30 PM.  If you have missed our previous “Bear Talk” sessions, you can access our videos through our website or the following link.  Thanks for learning together!  Link to previous “Bear Talks.”

    “Bear Talk” Series – Upcoming Sessions

    • March 11 - Math
      • Topics: “Pawitively” Positive Experiences on the Path to Fact Fluency
    • April 1 – SOL Testing – For families with students in grades 3-5.
      • Topics: Schedule, Testing and Covid Mitigation, What a testing session will look like, and What an SOL test looks like

     Moncure’s 2nd Lexia and Dreambox Challenge

         We are one week into our second Lexia and Dreambox challenge and I cannot begin to stress the importance of all students doing more than simply attending 10 hours of teacher-led instruction each week.  Our data has proven that students who have completed their 5 Dreambox lessons and met their Lexia target minutes or target units have already demonstrated close to a year’s growth in these programs.  The problem is… we only have approximately 50% of our students meeting these weekly targets and Lessons.  Parents, we need your help!  Your students should be able to navigate these programs independently.  My personal goal is for our school to have a minimum of 70% of students meet their targets and lessons throughout this 6-week challenge. Whether your Bear is working to grow their brain, earn a few House Points, or trying to earn an awesome tablet, new books, or a ThinkFun game, there are many reasons why using Lexia and Dreambox is a good idea.  Let’s go Bears!

    WIDA Testing

         After a rocky start to our WIDA testing, we are hoping to make a lot of progress this week.  If your student is scheduled to take these tests, you should have received phone calls, emails, and postcards.  We are required to give these tests and your student’s attendance is important.   If you have never heard of a WIDA test, your student is most likely NOT taking this test.  However, if you do know about this test, it is very important that your student is present for their testing sessions.  If you still have questions, please call our school.  We will do our best to assist.  It is very important that WIDA students arrive for testing on time with a CHARGED CHROMEBOOK! Thanks for your help!  We can always accomplish more when we work together. J

     “Pawsitive” and “Caught Ya” Citations

    (Reminder) Moncure Picture Days (February 17th and 18th)

         Moncure has scheduled our 2020-21 Lifetouch picture days.  Hybrid students will take pictures during the mornings of February 17th and 18th and Virtual students have the opportunity to schedule picture sessions between 1PM and 6PM on these same dates.  Photographers will follow all CDC requirements as we utilize our gym to maintain safe distancing (Lifetouch - Photography Safety Protocol).  Hybrid picture days will be much like “normal” where classes will arrive to our gym at scheduled times.  Virtual students may sign up for picture times through our Virtual Student Picture Sign-up.  To learn more about the format of our upcoming picture days, I invite families to watch the following video from Lifetouch. (Picture Day Safety Procedures) We are committed to providing a safe and smile-filled experience for our Moncure community.  To learn more about picture plans and pricing, please refer to the link below.  All orders and payments will be processed directly through the Lifetouch website, https://my.lifetouch.com/mylifetouch/#/. Once there, it is important that you use Moncure’s Picture Day ID: EVT64HJ72.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office for assistance.  We look forward to seeing our Bear Smiles again.

    Cameras ON and Student Participation

         I would like to thank our students and families for trying to keep virtual learning cameras on last week.  I must tell you… I received several comments from staff and students about how this change has made everyone more connected.  Thank you for supporting this change.  Let’s keep this going.  Having cameras on makes a difference!

    House Celebration - Friday, February 5th

         It is time for another House Celebration. This Friday, we will release a link to a newly recorded celebration.  During this celebration, we will recognize another round of students from each House, spin our wheel for additional House points, reveal our top 5 Lexia and Dreambox students, and draw student names to receive new digital tablets.  Looking over our current enrollment, we still have 61 students who have NOT spun our wheel to become a member of a House.  If your student has not spun our wheel, please bring them by our school between 9:00-4:00 daily.  We love cheering new students as they spin our wheel.  Go Bears! 

    Lexia and Dreambox Challenge (Overview of 1st Challenge)

         We have officially reached the end of our first Lexia and Dreambox Challenge.  I’m so proud of our bears and want for them to continue their momentum.  I tell our students all the time that these programs are simply great opportunities to grow their brains.  While we will not begin our 2nd challenge for a couple of weeks, I encourage all students to continue their usage.  Keep learning and growing Moncure Bears!  The charts below reflect our school’s overall participation throughout our first challenge.  I am happy with these numbers, but still recognize the opportunity to improve as a school. I look to blow these numbers away during our next challenge.  Keep Reading and practicing your skills!  It makes a difference.  Go Bears!

    Hello Moncure Families!

         I have a several things to share this week.  Please be patient as you navigate through each section.  I’m sorry about the length!  Thanks for your partnership! 

    COMING SOON!  Moncure’s “Bear Talk” Series

         I would like to introduce something new for our Moncure families.  Moncure is kicking off a “Bear Talk” series on February 4th to support our community.  Moncure’s eight-week “Bear Talk” series will take place on Thursdays from 7:00–7:30 PM.  The format of each “Bear Talk” will include staff led overviews, short video explanations of topics, and live question and answer discussions.  Time is precious for everyone, so we will do our best to keep all sessions to 30 minutes.  Interpreters will be available for question and answer sessions.  The dates and topics for our first three sessions are below.  We will provide links to join these sessions as dates approach.  We hope you will consider participating in our “Bear Talk” Series.

    Moncure PTO Board Election

         Now that we have all adjusted to Virtual and Hybrid school, I am happy to say we have a group of parents who are interested in supporting our school’s PTO.  While our PTO will look different, there are certainly ways we can all work together.  The PTO Ballot below will allow you to vote for our uncontested PTO Board.  You will also see that we still have positions available.  While it may sound odd to vote for uncontested positions, this is how PTO elections take place.  If you are interested in working with our PTO, look for additional information soon.  Thanks for the partnership!  MES PTO Ballot

    Cameras ON and Student Participation

         I am concerned with the number of students not using cameras during virtual sessions.  This becomes a bigger challenge when students also refuse to respond to questions.  From our perspective, it is impossible to know if a student is learning or if they are even there.  Beginning this week, I would like to make keeping cameras ON a virtual learning requirement at Moncure.  Parents, I really need your help with this one!  We have way too many students falling into this category.  Please understand that we are not trying to see into homes.  Positioning your students to have walls in their background.  Improving student participation, engagement, and learning is our goal.  If this is a problem, please feel free to talk with our teachers, counselors, or myself.  I simply want all of our students to be as successful as possible.   

    Lexia and Dreambox Challenge (FINAL WEEK of our 1st Challenge!)

         This week is the final week of our first Lexia and Dreambox challenge.  It is very important that we finish our challenge strong.  While we have seen a few more users this past week, I know we can still do much better.  Whether your Bear is working to grow their brain, earn a few House Points, or trying to earn an awesome tablet, there are many reasons why simply using Lexia and Dreambox are good.  We will reveal our top 5 students and tablet recipients on Friday, February 5th.  Look for more information soon about our next challenge.  You got this Bears!

    Hello Moncure Families!

         I hope I am finding everyone well.  Besides updating last week’s Lexia and Dreambox progress, I promise to stay brief.

         First, I would like to remind everyone that there is no school tomorrow (January 18th) in respect of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s holiday.    When we return to school on Tuesday, January 19th, we are returning to our Hybrid and 100% Virtual groupings.  We are excited to see kids in our hallways again. 

         I am happy to share that Moncure will have Lifetouch picture days this year.  Hybrid students will take pictures on the mornings of February 17th and 18th and Virtual students will have the opportunity to sign up for picture sessions on the afternoon and evenings of those same days.  Look for more information about sign-ups and safe picture day structure next week.

         We still have two remaining weeks for our first round of Lexia and Dreambox challenges?   Last week, I challenged our school to have over 800 users for each of these programs.  We are still not there.  We really need the support from our parents to meet this target.  If your student is not a part of the numbers below, please encourage them to participate.  It will only help their learning.  It takes a village!  Thanks.

    Good evening Moncure Families!

         I hope everyone has enjoyed the sunny weekend!  I have two quick things for today before sharing last week’s Lexia and Dreambox progress.  First, I would like to remind everyone that we are Virtual again this week.  To learn more about this decision, please refer to Dr. Kizner’s email from Friday.  Eventually, we will all be back together!  It just needs to be safe for everyone. 

       My second topic for today refers to supporting students who are not performing where they need to be academically.  When this occurs, schools are required to provide instructional and/or digital supports to address learning gaps.  Throughout the year, schools are required to monitor student progress with these supports.  This is referred to as RTI (Response to Intervention).  This is where I am requesting the help from our community.  We have several students who simply do not show up for their adult-led virtual sessions or complete any online extra practice.  We cannot do this alone!  Hybrid and Virtual learning is hard for everyone.  However, when we spend hours to create groups and lessons for student no-shows it is very challenging.  Likewise, I ask that parents monitor but NOT provide heavy support for Lexia and Dreambox each week.  When adults provide answers for students on these programs, students are assumed to understand a topic.  Please keep up the monitoring.  However, let your students do the thinking.  Thanks for your help. 

         We still have 3 remaining weeks for our first round of Lexia and Dreambox challenges?   I would like to see us have over 800 users for each of these programs this week.  It certainly will not hurt!  As you can see by the numbers below, Thanks for your motivation from home!

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a restful winter break.   As we prepare for our Virtual return this week and our eventual Hybrid return on January 11th, I ask that families closely monitor COVID symptoms after holiday travels and family gatherings.  The safety of our students and staff are very important.  If you are worried about a recent COVID exposure, I ask that you contact our office.  We are happy to coordinate a temporary virtual classroom placement to maintain everyone’s safety.  Good communication and proactive planning are vital at this time.  Thanks for your understanding!

         Did you know we still have 4 remaining weeks for our Lexia and Dreambox challenges?   Leading up to our winter break, we saw great use and progress on both of these programs.  Now it is time to pick up our pace again!  We have 2 Samsung Tablets that are completely up for grabs.  We also have house points to be earned!  Our next House Celebration will take place on Friday, February 5th.  Will your house take the lead over the next 4 weeks?  Will you be the lucky student to receive a new tablet?   Meet your minutes on Lexia and complete a minimum of 5 lessons on Dreambox to support your house.  We got this Bear Nation!

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         Happy final week before Winter Break!  I want to begin today by celebrating our awesome Lexia and Dreambox achievements from the past week.  We have had a few questions about the repetition of these programs.  To help everyone understand, both programs are designed to check and recheck for secure student understandings.  Please trust the adaptability of these programs.  They will progress when students are ready.  We are seeing great progress in the data.  Keep it up!  While Winter Break is NOT a part of our challenge, please do not hesitate to have your kiddos use the program from time to time.  Spending 30 to 60 minutes each day will only maintain some normalcy over the two weeks.  Keep it up everyone!

         HELP!  I have recently learned that we still have approximately 600 outstanding library books from the 2020-21 school year.  Please check your homes for these books and have your Bears return them to our school.  You may also drop them in the bin outside our main office each day.  Please help us gather these books back.  We are trying to avoid the massive repurchasing costs.  Thanks! 

         HOUSE CELEBRATION!!!  Please mark your calendars!  This Friday at 1:00 PM, we will release a link to watch a newly recorded House Celebration.  During this celebration, we will review house standings, recognize a student from each house, spin our wheel for house points, and release a 13 Days of Google Meet video that will surely make everyone laugh.  Look for this link later this week! 

         As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link

    Hello Moncure Families!  

         I want to start today by celebrating the awesome achievements we observed during the first week of our Lexia and Dreambox Challenges.  However, as good as we are doing, we really need parent support to make sure all students are working on Lexia and Dreambox each week.  Below, you will find charts of grade level participation.  If you have not seen your student use either of these programs recently, ask them to log in and show you their progress.  Both of these programs pace themselves on student understanding.  I appreciate your help from home.  If you are not aware of our Lexia and Dreambox challenges, I ask you to watch our video from last week.  Video Link   Many house points have been earned.  However, we can still earn many more.  Let’s go BEARS!

         Have you signed up for a Parent/Teacher Conference?  Conferences begin tomorrow!  It is very important that you look for communication from our teachers to learn how to join our virtual conferences.  We look forward to sharing with you this week. 

         Because of Parent/Teacher Conferences, Monday, December 7th will be different for our students.  Unless you have heard differently from your student’s teacher, we will not begin tomorrow with a Morning Meeting.  I have also given permission for Lexia, Dreambox, and independent reading to be our primary “On My Own” tasks for tomorrow.  Look for more guidance from our teachers. 

         Would you like to earn our PTO and school money while filling your stomachs? THIS WEDNESDAY (December 9th), we have a Panera Spirit Night from 4 PM - 8 PM.  Thanks for supporting our school!

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         I hope everyone has enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving Break.  Most importantly, I hope everyone is feeling healthy.  I have received a few questions about how we will be returning this week.  Based on the fact that no further direction has come from Dr. Kizner, I am anticipating a return to the same hybrid / 100% virtual format we have been using.  We are excited to see our kiddo’s smiles again. 

         As I mentioned last week, we are beginning our Lexia and Dreambox competitions tomorrow.  For more information about these competitions, I hope you will show the following video to your Moncure Bears.  Let’s go BEARS!!!  Video Link

         Did you know Moncure is one of only three schools to have a SPO (School Protection Officer)?  Master Deputy M. Todd has a history of working with children throughout our county and is committed to supporting our community.  To learn more about Deputy Todd and to learn more about how you can keep our building safe, please read his attached message.  We are very fortunate to have Deputy Todd with us at Moncure.

    Good evening Moncure Families!  

         I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about this week’s schedule changes. Monday will remain as an asynchronous “On My Own” day.  Tuesday will be a Virtual learning day with Group A students receiving virtual live instruction from 9 AM to 12 PM and Group B students receiving virtual live instruction from 2-4 PM.  As of this evening, it is still unknown whether we will be returning from Thanksgiving Break with our current Hybrid/Virtual format or if we will be going 100% virtual.  Keep an eye out for an email from Dr. Kizner.  Should a change be made, it will come through him.  Thanks. 

         As you may be aware, Stafford County has purchased Lexia and Dreambox to support all elementary students with Reading and Math.  Both programs are adaptive and support independent learning.  Based on Lexia pretest scores, the program has assigned all students with a target number of minutes to work each week.  Dreambox challenges students to complete 5 lessons each week.  To ramp up participation, we are kicking off Lexia and Dreambox participation challenges.   Between November 30th and January 29th, all students will be able to earn up to two “House” points each week for achieving their Lexia target and for completing 5 Dreambox lessons.  The top 5 students who spend the most time on Lexia will be included in a drawing for a new Samsung Tablet.  Likewise, the top 5 students who complete the most lessons on Dreambox will also be included in a drawing for a Samsung Tablet.  Please encourage your “Bears” to use Lexia and Dreambox and participate in these challenges.  Let’s earn some “House” points and win those tablets!  Everyone starts fresh November 30th.  Good luck!

    Hello Moncure Families! 

                As many of you read in Dr. Kizner’s letter, our county is adjusting next week’s schedule as we prepare for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Monday will remain as an asynchronous “On My Own” day and Tuesday will become a Virtual learning day with Group A students receiving virtual live instruction from 9 AM to 12 PM and Group B students receiving virtual live instruction from 2-4PM.  All students will continue to follow our current specials schedules with Group B students receiving Live Specials instruction on Tuesday and Group A students will participate in self-guided “On My Own” specials.  For students who attend our Internet Cafe, transportation will also follow our Monday bus schedule on Tuesday.  We hope this information provides clarification. 

                As stated in Dr. Kizner’s letter, “Students with an IEP in elementary school will transition to Plan C as outlined on their IEPs for these two days. All accommodations and goals as outlined in your child’s IEP will continue to be implemented as indicated. For students that are coming into the building during plan C for in person instruction, transportation will continue to be offered (to include special transportation). If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s case manager or the building level designee. Once we come back from the holiday, students will transition back to Plan B as outlined on their IEPs.  Students with 504 plans will continue to have access to their accommodations.” 

                Stafford County will continue to evaluate local health data during the Thanksgiving holiday. It is important to have plans in place just in case it is decided that our school system move from a face-to-face/hybrid learning model to a virtual only instructional model. It is our county’s intention to give parents and staff as much notice as possible if a change is made.  Please understand that the COVID-19 virus remains a very fluid situation.  The SCPS website houses a  COVID-19 data dashboard with the weekly numbers of COVID-19 in the district.  We hope you find it useful.  (https://www.staffordschools.net/Page/29163).

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         I hope everyone is safe and healthy.  I have a few things for the week.  First, report cards will go live through ParentView on Tuesday, November 17th.  Please contact our office if you are having difficulty accessing your account.  Soon, you will receive information about fall conferences.  Moncure is planning to conduct this year’s conferences virtually between December 7th and 9th.  It is very important that we connect with all parents during this window. 

         Monday, November 16th, Moncure will have a spirit night at Chipotle from 4-8PM.  Order something good to eat and support our school at the same time.  Go Bears! 

         Unfortunately, my next two topics will not be appreciated by everyone.  However, in our hybrid/virtual world of teaching, we need two things from our students and community.  One, we need students to attend school regularly, and Two; we need our students to actively participate in learning.  Looking at our attendance this fall, there are many students who have already missed over two weeks of school.  This is a concern.  We will be contacting several families shortly to create student attendance plans.  State laws require students over the age of 5 to attend school.  Please help us help your students!  Educating children takes a community! 

         Concerning active participation, many of our students are choosing to log in with cameras and microphones off all day.  When we cannot see or hear our students, we cannot support confusions or confirm they are learning.  Please encourage your students to participate with their cameras on.  If you are worried about a live camera in your house, position your student with a wall in the background.  It looks like our hybrid/virtual world will be around for a while longer.  I am simply pleading for everyone to make our time as purposeful and productive as possible.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.  We only want what is best for our students. 

         As always, I would like to encourage students and community members to recognize our staff with “Caught Ya” Citations.  I absolutely love forwarding your compliments to our amazing staff.  If you would like to recognize one or more of our staff members, simply use this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         I hope everyone had the chance to enjoy this weekend’s beautiful weather!  With Veteran’s Day approaching, I would like to take a moment to recognize our Veterans and families for their dedication and sacrifice for our country.  While it will be in a virtual format, our school is continuing our Veteran’s Day tribute tradition in a video format this year.  Look for our video on Wednesday morning!  We appreciate our Veterans and families!

         Have you heard?  Our county has decided to delay the publishing of report cards until Monday, November 16th.  All report cards will be available through ParentView.  If you need help accessing your account, please contact our office for support.  Once you establish your account, you will be set up to access report card grades through ParentView until your child(ren) graduates from High School.  Save your usernames and passwords!  You will need them! 

         Over the past week, I was able to visit all Hybrid classrooms with Mr. Price, to have new students spin our wheel.  I am happy to say, we are down to 58 NEW students who still need a House Assignment.  If your hybrid student was absent on the day of our visit, we will catch up with them soon.  If you have a virtual student who has not spun our wheel, we ask that you to stop by our office soon to spin.  We really need all of our students to be assigned to a house!  For student safety, everyone who spins the wheel is given a rubber glove and hand sanitizer at the time of their spin.  Rubber house bracelets are given to students after each spin is complete. We’re hoping for 100% of our students to be assigned to a House by Thanksgiving Break.  Thanks for your help!

         Moncure has a new baby bear!  Mrs. Clemente and her husband recently welcomed Tyler Joseph Clemente to their family.  Mrs. Clemente will be away from our building until early spring enjoying her new bundle of love.  Join me in congratulating the Clemente family!

    Hello Moncure Families! 

         I hope everyone has had a great weekend.  I wanted to start by thanking our whole community for your patience as we have adjusted to our new schedule and Hybrid / Virtual instructional models.  Overall, this past week was awesome!    Thanks for sharing your kids. 

         As we continue to adjust to our Hybrid model, we would like to share our updated “A Note To School” form to help hybrid families communicate with our school.  Should you need to report an absence or a share different pick-up method for your Bear, please send us a copy of this form electronically or through your student.  We hope you find form useful. 

         Have you heard?  This week is Moncure’s first Spirit Week of the year!!!  While we may not all be together, I would love to see pictures of our Bears showing spirit.  If your student is currently not assigned to one of our houses, we plan to stop by classrooms this week.  If your student is virtual, you may stop by our school M-F for them to spin the wheel in our lobby.  Gloves and sanitizer will be available for all spinners!   House points are growing for our 2020-21 House of the year.  We love our house system and can’t wait for everyone to be connected again soon!  MES SPIRIT WEEK (11/2-11/6)

    MES – Helpful Information (October 22)  /  MES - Información útil (22 de Octubre)

    Good Evening Families,

         This evening, many of you received an email from our county with incorrect information.  Our county is currently looking into this data syncing issue, and intends to forward accurate information soon.  I can assure you, our school has very accurate documentation of your Virtual/Hybrid and Transportation requests.  We are working with the county to make sure their information aligns with ours. 

         Below, you will find several videos that explain how our school will operate after our schedule change and transition to Hybrid instruction.  We have also included English and Spanish slides with information.  Finally, we have included slides with grade level Virtual/Hybrid schedules. All of this information will also be available on our website soon.  We hope you find this information helpful. 

    Calling all Car Riders:

         We have approximately 50 known students who have NOT registered for our afternoon Car Rider pick-up.  If you have not completed the Car Rider Registration Form please do this ASAP!  We need time to assign family numbers and prepare for your children next week.  Thanks! 

    Look for bus information and a final instructional confirmation from our school soon.

     

     

    MES – Weekly Communication (October 18)  /  MES - Comunicación semanal (18 de Octubre)

    Hello Moncure families,

         One week to go until the rollout of our new schedule and optional Hybrid learning!  This past Wednesday, everyone should have received an email from Moncure Enrollment.  This email identifies A or B days, teacher clusters, and transportation methods as of next week.  Hybrid students will receive more information this week about buses and car rider numbers.  If you indicated that your student will be a car rider, it is important that you fill out the Car Rider Registration Form or contact our office this week.  We need your information to assign car rider numbers. Thanks for your help!

         Did you know?  We have 500 students returning to our halls next week. Due to a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) waiver, Stafford County Public Schools will serve meals at NO CHARGE to children 18 and under through December 31, 2020.  Although school meals will be provided free to all children, school funding depends on completed meal applications. If your child has utilized free or reduced meals in the past or you anticipate that your student will need meal assistance in January 2021, it is important to submit a new meal assistance application now.  While all hybrid students will be offered 4 breakfasts and 4 lunches each week, an opt-out for these meals will be forwarded soon. Without your feedback, all students will be provided these free meals.  Stay tuned! 

     Only one meal application is needed for each household.

    Applications are available online on the SCPS Website.

         Look Out!  Thursday evening, we will publish a new orientation video as we prepare for next week.  In this video, we will take a deeper look at our schedules, do walk-throughs for morning arrivals and afternoon dismissals, discuss how things will look different for our Hybrid students than previous years, review safety guidelines, and answer frequently asked questions.  We hope you will watch for this video. 

         Do you like Sweet Frog?  We have our first PTO Spirit Days this week. Sweet Frog has given us 10/21 and 10/22 from 12:00-9:30PM each day as Moncure Spirit Days.  We hope you will consider a cool treat as you support our school!

    Hello Moncure families,

         I hope everyone is doing well.  I would like to thank our community for helping us gather current Virtual or Hybrid learning preferences moving forward.  We have received your feedback have begun the process of matching preferences with teachers.  Unfortunately, several cluster fluctuations of A and B students have resulted in the need for additional Virtual or Hybrid sections.  While we are trying to minimize student shifts, it appears we may have no choice but to switch a few classroom teachers to make additional Virtual or Hybrid sections.  It is our intention to inform all affected parents, students, and staff of student or cluster shifts by Wednesday, October 14th.  Due to having over 225 shifts, we will be notifying all families through email.  All shifts will officially begin the week of October 26th.  We apologize in advance for any stress that may come from placement changes.  We do not want to disrupt student-teacher relationships either.  Thanks for your cooperation and understanding. 

         Daycare Support:  Over the past week, we learned that several daycare centers in our area are NOT preparing to provide transportation for students receiving Hybrid instruction.  We have also learned that YMCA SACC is not planning to house a program at Moncure this fall.  Please confirm transportation with your daycare providers.  We are trying to avoid frustrations as we prepare for our upcoming schedule and instructional changes.  Thanks for your help. 

         Car Rider Registration: We have heard from approximately 60 of our 130 anticipated car riders.  If you have a hybrid student who is planning to be a car rider, please remember to complete the form below.  Based on the completion of this form, family numbers and student tags will be created.  Thanks for your help!   Car Rider Registration Form

    Hello Moncure families,

         I hope everyone has enjoyed the beautiful weekend.  I only have a few quick things this week.  First, I would like to thank everyone for your 100% Virtual and Hybrid input.  As I write this email, we are only down to 23 students without responses.  Thank you so much! 

         Based on your responses, we have identified 213 students who need to be switched from their initial 100% Virtual or Hybrid instructional preference.  This week, we will begin the process of adjusting class placements.  Next week, we will begin informing families of students who need shift classrooms.  Thanks for your patience throughout this process.

         As we prepare for Hybrid students to join us on October 26th, we need to set up our Car Rider system.  If you requested Hybrid instruction and indicated that you do not wish for your student to ride a bus, I ask that you to complete the following Car Rider Registration form.  Based on the completion of this form, family numbers and student tags will be created.  Thanks for your help!   Car Rider Registration Form

         Thanks to all “Caught Ya” citation submitters.  Our staff is doing amazing things and your support is greatly appreciated.  If you are interested in recognizing one or more of our staff members, simply click on this link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link

    MES – Weekly Communication (September 27)  /  MES - Comunicación semanal (27 de Septiembre)

    Good Evening Moncure families,

          I hope everyone had a great week.  As many of you are aware, Stafford County made an important decision this past Tuesday.  If you were not able to find time to read Dr. Kizner’s letter this past Friday, I will do my best to sum things up.  I apologize in advance for the length of today’s message.  I would rather be thorough than leave confusions.  Thanks for your understanding. 

         While our county originally targeted an optional Hybrid K-2 pilot return for the week of October 6th, schools across the county received a lot of feedback about the hardship of only implementing half of our students in a revised format.  As a result, it was determined that an optional Hybrid / 100% Virtual K-5 return is the better solution for all schools to implement during the week of October 26th.  Five schools across our county were asked to conduct a Kindergarten (ONLY) Hybrid pilot.  To eliminate addition confusion, Moncure was NOT one of the five schools identified for this program. 

         So you may ask… What is next?  Well, this week we will begin reaching out to all families with students in grades 3-5 to learn about your Hybrid or 100% Virtual preferences for the remainder of the year.  K-2 families had this opportunity a couple of weeks ago; however, you will not be surveyed again at this time.  Should K-2 families wish to adjust your recent feedback, we simply ask that you contact our office.  We will adjust your preference accordingly.

         There is a lot to be done between now and our optional Hybrid return the week of October 26th.  I would like to take a moment to share what we will be doing behind the scenes.  In addition to making sure we hear from every family, we will need to revisit Hybrid and 100% Virtual assignments to make sure our combined class sizes do not exceed 23 students in grades K-3 and 27 students in grades 4 and 5.  We will also need to shift students to make sure that Virtual teachers only have Virtual students and Hybrid teachers only have Hybrid students.  Our initial feedback from our K-2 survey a few weeks back indicated that we will need to move a minimum of 96 student placements to match new instructional preferences.  To make these changes, we will most likely need to move additional students to meet class size criteria.  While we will do our best to limit as many moves as possible, we know that unwanted classroom moves may be necessary.  Our timeline has us readjusting our classroom placements during the week of October 5th and notifying parents during the week of October 12th of any necessary changes.  As I mentioned previously, all Hybrid and 100% Virtual classroom shifts will take place the week of October 26th

         Will the instructional day look different after these changes take place?  Yes.  While we have all adjusted fairly well to Synchronous (Teacher-Led) instructional days, Asynchronous (On My Own) days have been much more challenging for K-5 students and families across our county.  Effective the week of October 26th, we will also make changes to our current schedule.  The largest change is that ALL students will receive Synchronous instruction Tuesday-Friday.  “A” students will receive teacher-led instruction between 9-12 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Synchronous instruction on Thursdays and Fridays from 2-4PM.  In addition, this same group of students will be asked to join our teachers for Morning Meeting, Specials, and intervention groups on Thursdays and Fridays.  “B” students will have an opposite schedule of “A” students Tuesday through Friday.  Mondays will continue to begin with Morning Meeting at 9AM, with assigned work to follow.  Here is the change to Asynchronous learning.  Instead of navigating through Canvas to see what to do, Asynchronous learning will be assigned classwork / homework that reinforces teacher-led instruction.  This could also include projects, independent reading, time on Lexia, or time on DreamBox.  Whatever these tasks may be, they will be assigned by our teachers during Synchronous learning time.  I am sharing this with you now as I want everyone to be informed as early as possible in this process.  Should you have any questions about our optional Hybrid transition or schedule, I am happy to help.  Just ask.

         This past week has been a blast as we kicked off our digital “Pawsitive” Citations (Student recognitions) and “Caught Ya” – Staff Citations.  I am hoping to see many more entries this week.  As a reminder, you can submit a “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation at any time.  If you interested in doing so, please use the following link.  “Caught Ya” – Staff Citation Link

         Don't forget to stop by Moncure on Monday (8/28) between 10-4 pm or Tuesday (8/29) between 2 -4pm for our second important instructional support materials pick-up.  ALL BEARS HAVE ITEMS THAT NEED TO BE PICKED-UP.  If these hours do not work for you, you may also drop by our office M-F between 9-4PM.  We will happily assist. 

         Finally, we are still looking for a few more volunteers to support our 2020-21 PTO.  If you are interested in supporting our PTO and community, please complete the following link.  Someone from our 2019-20 PTO will follow-up with you shortly.  Thanks for your support!

    Have a Wonderful Week!

    Hello Moncure Community!

         I only have a few short topics for today.  First, I would like to mention how great it was to see a few more students in our building this past week.   I am hopeful to see several more Bears over the next several weeks! 

         As many of you are aware, we are working through our fall testing window.  The message below is from our Literacy and Math Departments.  Thanks for your support and assistance!  These assessments are certainly a challenge to schedule and administer. 

    Greetings Bear Families!                                                       

    Huge thanks for your help scheduling your students’ fall assessment screeners. We know you are excited to see results. Please understand these screenings take time; and to be equitable, we do not send results before the testing windows are closed. 

    We are still scheduling screenings with many students and may reach out again for additional sessions so we can finish components of tests.

    Families can expect a detailed letter explaining the testing, results and next steps.  

    Meanwhile, continue to support your child’s learning at home. Classroom instruction and learning this new virtual world is so important. 

    Please let us know if you have any other questions about this. We appreciate your partnership. 

    Thanks for your support and patience!

         This week, we are rolling out our digital “Pawsitive” Citations (Student recognitions) and “Caught Ya” – Staff Citations.  When students receive “Pawsitive” Citations from staff, their information will be forwarded to school admin and parents to learn about our amazing students.  I have already received a few “Pawsitive” Citations and look forward to receiving many more. 

         “Caught Ya” – Staff Citations are a little different.  These recognitions can be made by parents, students, and co-workers to acknowledge staff for their effort.  If you would like to recognize a staff member through a “Caught Ya” citation, please use the link below.  I will continue to I will continue to leave this link in future emails for your convenience.  Thanks for taking the time to recognize our amazing staff!

         Finally, now that we are beginning to acclimate to the 2020-21 school year, we would love to get our PTO up and running for the year.  Unfortunately, our abrupt end to the 2019-20 school year has left us with very few PTO volunteers.  We need your help!!!  If you are interested in being on Moncure’s PTO board, we ask you to complete the following form to express your interest.  Thank you so much!

    Have a Wonderful Week!

    Hello Moncure Community!

          I hope everyone had a great week and weekend!  As we look towards our first full week of school, I want to remind all students to join your teachers for a morning meeting tomorrow before beginning your asynchronous (on your own) work.   This week, our teachers will be sharing a video from Mrs. Clemente, Mr. Price, and myself with students about behavior expectations and our house system.  After our students review the video, I will share the same video with parents next weekend.  Thanks for your support.  If you would like to learn more about our house system, we have created a web page to learn more.  Take a peak! 

    MES House Information

         As you may have read Friday afternoon, Dr. Kizner shared that elementary schools are excited to propose a pilot program that will invite all Kindergarten through second grade students back into our classrooms.  While all K-2 parents have the option to remain Virtual or move to Hybrid, the ultimate determination to move forward with this pilot will be made after a review of health data by our School Board on September 22nd.  If the School Board determines to move forward with the pilot, our K-2 students would begin hybrid instruction the week of October 6th.  An email and K-2 student interest form was sent to all K-2 families this past Friday evening.  The county has asked for a confirmed response from all families by mid-week.  If you have a K-2 student and you have not completed the form, please do so ASAP.  Otherwise, expect a phone call from our school Monday or Tuesday.  Thanks for your help!   If you are wondering when grades 3-5 students might be able to begin Hybrid learning… the hope is for this to be possible approximately one month after our K-2 pilot.  Stay tuned! 

    REMINDERS:

    • If you have not picked up or received your student materials, please stop by the school this week. Materials bags are needed to support student learning. 

    Have a Wonderful Week!

    Hello Moncure Community!

          Happy Labor Day!   I would like to thank everyone for your patience as we navigated through our first week of virtual elementary learning.  While there were a few glitches and challenges, it was definitely a very successful week!  I am thankful for our staff, our families, and our students.  As we approach our second week, we will continue to explore and implement our new Canvas learning platform.  While we will most likely continue to experience learning curves along the way, know that our goal is to provide memorable learning experiences for all students.  

    Thanks for your support.

         With more of our instruction transitioning to Canvas this week, I thought it would be helpful to share the Canvas login and information video again from last week.  While we will always be here to help, I hope this helps along the way.  Student Canvas Overview

    Student Materials

           I would like to thank everyone who stopped by Wednesday or Thursday to pick up student learning materials.  Unfortunately, as we wrapped up our distribution on Thursday evening, we still had approximately 300 unclaimed student material bags.  Please understand, your students will need these materials.  Inside these bags, you will find several workbooks and packets to support student practice.  If you have not claimed your child’s materials, please stop this week.  Look for a second distribution of math and art materials in two or three weeks.  Thanks for your help!

    Online Disruptions

           As we continue to adjust to our virtual classroom settings, I wanted to share a few disruptions we encountered this week.  While several disruptions were purely accidental, others were not.  With instructional time being so limited, I appreciate your support and awareness from home.  If necessary, teachers have the ability to kick students out of Google Meets.  If this happens, students may be blocked from live instruction for the remainder of the day.  We are trying to avoid these situations.  Thanks for your help and understand from home. 

    Examples:

    • Family members walking behind students and cameras in underwear
    • Family members yelling and cussing in the background
    • Siblings yelling in the screen at their brothers and sisters
    • Students shoving toys in front of cameras
    • Students posting nonsense in Google Meet chats

    Thanks again for your partnership in this new adventure.  Please do not forget to pick up your student materials!    Together, we can certainly accomplish anything! 

    Have a wonderful week!

    Respectfully,

    Mr. Machi

    Hello Moncure Community!

           Happy 2020-21 School Year Eve!!!  So much has happened since we last had a normal school day on March 12th.  Not only have many of our students changed, but we are preparing to teach everyone through virtual instruction.  Even as I write this letter, several of my staff and I continue to support families with preparing for our first day of virtual learning.  Throughout the past week, all of our teachers have connected with families through phone calls, home visits, emails, Google Meets, and the list goes on.  Believe me.  We are all anxious to for our first day of school tomorrow.  Should you have any difficulties logging in tomorrow morning, please do not hesitate to contact our school.  We will have many hands on deck to support.  We will get through this together!  School Phone Number: 540-658-6300

           I would like to take a moment to re-share a portion of Dr. Kizner’s recent letter about changes made to our login procedures.  While your teachers may have already shared these with you, we only want to help all of our students connect.  We hope the information and links below help. 

     

    “On Monday, we will open our virtual doors to approximately 30,000 children for the 2020-2021 school year. Though the return will look differently than it ever has, the joy and excitement remain the same. In preparation for the first day of school on Monday, please watch this Student Canvas Overview video, which provides students with instructions for the login process. Younger children should watch this age appropriate video for Canvas support. I also encourage you to review these Student and Parent Expectations for Virtual Learning, which will be reviewed with your students in the first two weeks of school.”

    REMINDER (Schedule this Week)

           While our A students are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday (LIVE) instruction and our B students are scheduled for Thursday and Friday (LIVE) instruction, our first week of school is different.  For the first week of school ONLY, our A students will receive (LIVE) instruction on Monday, August 31st and Tuesday, September 1st, and our B students will receive (LIVE) instruction on Wednesday, September 2nd and Thursday, September 3rd.  We hope this reminder helps with your planning for the week. 

    Material Distribution Date Change

           Due to the delay of several of our workbooks and materials, we have delayed our material distribution to Wednesday, September 2nd and Thursday, September 3rd.  While we will have most books and materials available, we are still waiting for several items.  For those materials, we will hold another round of distributions in 2-3 weeks.  This week’s distributions will run from 2-6PM.  Students with Last Names A-L are asked to come on Wednesday and students with Last names M-Z are asked to come on Thursday.  Unlike our previous distributions, we will be using our cafeteria this week.  Please look for guidance from our staff as you arrive.  All student bags will be placed in trunks.  Thanks for your help!

    CALLING ALL NEW BEARS!!!

             Moncure’s House System is a very big part of our school.  While we will be rolling out a House Website soon, we need to get all of our NEW students assigned to one of our 6 Houses now.  To learn more about when we would like to have our new students spin our wheel, I invite our new students to watch this video from Mrs. Clemente.  (Mrs. Clemente Video)

           Finally, now that you have heard from Mrs. Clemente, Mr. Price and I have also created a video for our students and families.  We hope you enjoy! (Mr. Price and Mr. Machi Video)  We looking forward to a great 2020-21 school year together.  See you soon! 

    I apologize again for the long communication. 

    Have a wonderful week!

    Respectfully,

    Mr. Machi

    Hello Moncure Community!

           I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  I apologize in advance for the long message.  It’s hard to believe we are only One Week Away from our virtual start.  We have a lot planned for the week as we make our final preparations.  Thanks for your ongoing patience and understating as we continue to redefine school from how we are all most comfortable.

           Class placements are live on ParentVue.  If you are not able to access your account, please contact our office tomorrow.

           Look for an email and welcome video from assigned classroom teachers tomorrow (8/24).  During this introduction, you will learn about virtual classroom orientations scheduled for this week.   To locate our orientation schedule in advance, please look for your child’s teacher on our website calendar.  For your ease, please use this direct link to our calendar. https://www.staffordschools.net/Page/28#calendar54436/20200825/day

           If you missed our virtual Town Hall, you can still access our recording through our website.  We appreciate you wonderful feedback! 

           I understand there may be some confusion concerning student supply lists and learning materials.  Supply lists are lists of items that we ask families to provide to assist their students.  Learning materials are items that we will be providing to you (workbooks, agendas, etc.).  Link to student supply lists.  https://www.staffordschools.net/Page/29767

           For students in need assistance with for student supplies… On Friday August 28th from 9-11 we will be hosting our annual backpack drive.  Please understand that this is first come first serve.  We have over 200 backpacks loaded with school supplies that have been donated from Ebenezer and Mount Ararat.  This is an opportunity for families in need to come and pick up school supplies and backpacks.  We will be distributing the backpacks from the gym, so we ask that you pull your car up to the gym, as if you are picking your child(s) from car-riders.  We will come to your car and ask you for your child(s) grade level and gender and then load an appropriate backpack into your trunk.

           Learning material distribution dates are still tentatively set for 8/31 - (Last Names A-F),   

    9/1 - (Last Names G-O), and 9/2 - (Last Names P-Z).   While we wished to distribute these materials with Chromebooks, however, we are still waiting for several items from suppliers.  Look for an update in next week’s communication. 

           Our last scheduled Chromebook distribution is taking place TOMORROW (8/24) from 2-6PM.  If you have not received a device, please stop by.  If you are not available tomorrow, Please stop by our office.  We will gladly assist! 

           Enrollment numbers are still drastically down across our county.  Moncure is currently under our projection by approximately 80 students.  Student placements in Virtual or Hybrid, and A or B clusters are very challenging.  If you have or know of a student to register, please do not delay!

    Hello Moncure Community!

           I hope everyone had a great week!  I know our staff has been working very hard to learn and support virtual instruction.  We are far from finished, but we are learning more each day. 

           At 6:30 PM tonight, we will post our Virtual Town Hall to our website.  In addition to answering your questions, we have also included information about our daily schedules, Chromebooks, textbooks, orientations, and other important information.  This link will remain active for your reference.  We also recorded all responses in English and Spanish.  We hope you find it useful.  Moncure’s Town Hall link will be located in our homepage circulating ribbon.

           Tomorrow evening, from 5-7 PM Stafford Food Securities will offer a cookout on our grounds and we will offer extended hours for registration, ParentVue and Google Support.  Social distancing guidelines will be followed for this community event.  Thanks for your support in advance.  We hope to see you there! 

           As a change, classroom assignments will now be posted across all Stafford County Elementary School this Friday evening (8/21) on ParentVue.   The calendar below reflects many opportunities to learn and prepare for the 2020-21 school year.  Please refer to the calendar below for your specific dates. 

           Finally, our enrollment numbers are still drastically down across our county.  Student placements in Virtual or Hybrid, and A or B clusters are very challenging.  If you have or know of a student to register, please do not delay!
