Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations go to Riley Sisk and Laura Piffaretti for being honored at the 14th Annual Chamber Stars Program on Friday, April 20. Each year the Tysons Chamber Stars program honors two students from each area school who deserve recognition for their personal accomplishments or improvements. Both students attended a breakfast awards ceremony with Dr. Scott Brabrand, FCPS Superintendent as the welcoming speaker.  We are proud of their achievements.

As the VA State Standards of Learning (SOL’s) are upon us, it is important to keep a few reminders in mind.  You received an SOL calendar that lists the dates when your child will be tested in each subject area.  Please avoid making appointments that removes the students from the testing time frame.  Of course, if a child is ill and needs to stay home that is understandable.  Please make sure students get a good night sleep prior to their assessments and have a healthy breakfast before coming to school.  I am confident that our teachers have prepared the students for their State assessments and Chesterbrook will maintain their high achievement levels.

Reminders: The week of April 23 is Office Staff Recognition week.  Pat Pence, Dave Troskey, Holly Remer, and Doreen Langesen, are essential support staff that go above and beyond to make the school run efficiently, support the teachers in their work, handle parents requests, placed in the front lines of handling emergencies, and most important, make your children feel loved and cared for each day.  Please take time to thank them during this week of recognition with a greeting or email.  In all honesty, they are the best office team I had the pleasure of working with.

The week of April 23 is also School Volunteer Appreciation week.  Yesterday I was in the library helping parents set up for the upcoming Book Fair.  I was amazed at how detailed and dedicated this group of parents were in assembling the stacks of books.  They considered everything down to the last detail including the flow of the students as they entered the library.  This is just one example of how our parents support Chesterbrook’s programs.  Parents have given of their time as PTA members, room parents, REACH volunteers, event planning/organizing/implementation, teacher appreciation activities, field trip chaperones, etc.  It is clear that these volunteers are essential in making Chesterbrook successful in supporting its children in the community.  Your work does not go unnoticed and the school staff would like to thank you for your time and support.

The week of May 7 is teacher appreciation week.  The teachers at Chesterbrook are second to none.  I have not met a group of professionals that are so willing to do whatever it takes to make each individual child achieve at a high level of success.  Twice each week they meet as a team to discuss individual children and brainstorm how they can better meet their needs.  They also take time to improve on their instruction to ensure their lessons are engaging and motivating.  Many hone their craft over the summer months to build on their repertoire of skill or take classes at local universities or FCPS offerings at the end of their teaching day.  Please take time during the week of May 7th to recognize their efforts.  As you know in the current budget climate, they are asked to do more for less.  Class sizes are higher and their monetary salary is less.  It is no secret why parents opt to stay at Chesterbrook – it’s the teachers.

Sincerely,

Augie and Connie

Reminder

If you know of anyone in the community that is coming to Chesterbrook next year.  Please have them contact the school.

Fitness Focus

In PE we will be wrapping up Jump Rope for Heart on April 20th.

-So far students have raised just over $23,000.

-Thank you for helping Chesterbrook with such a great cause!

We are excited to announce that our physical education department was awarded a grant from Innovation Health & Aetna through safe routes to school.  The grant includes a full class set of bicycles and helmets.  We will be teaching students how to ride, safety rules, and bicycle maintenance all on our school grounds.

Due to the size of the bikes we will be offering the unit to 4th and 5th grade students.  This year, bike safety will be a part of the outdoor persuits unit in the 4th quarter.  Next year we hope to incorporate them throughout the year.  Students who have not learned to ride before will be accommodated.  We understand there are different skill levels and are happy to help students learn this important skill.  More info to come!

Yours in fitness,

Mrs. Sink and Mr. Levesque

Heart Health

The human heart is a vital organ that pumps blood and delivers nutrients and oxygen to the brain and body.

Good heart health is achieved through proper nutrition, regular physical activity, sufficient hydration and adequate sleep.

Cardiovascular activities like walking, jogging, biking, and swimming, increase the heart rate to strengthen the heart muscle and increase lung capacity.

1st grade:  We learned a new song called “颜色歌” (Colors song) and ask what colors they like. Students will be able to say I like 我喜欢: red红色, green绿色, blue蓝色, yellow黄色, black黑色white白色orange橙色and purple紫色.

2nd grade: Students learned to say directions using 上 (shàng, up), 下 (xià, down), 左 (zuǒ, left), 右 (yòu, right), 前 (qián, front), 后 (hòu, back). We also talked about using Chinese to describe the relative location of an object or a person. Students practiced with their partner to describe where they sit in the classroom.           

3rd grade: Students learned to use 为什么 (wèi shén me, why) to ask for reasons and 因为 (yīn wéi, because) to state explanations. We also started preparing for the upcoming Jr. PALS writing test. In the next few weeks, students will use the study guide and in-class games to review key vocabulary and practice using sentence structures to make sentences. 

4th grade:  Students learned about the landform. We talked about I see 我看到 (wǒ kàn dào) 山 (shān), 河 (hé), 森林 (sēn lín), 海 (hǎi), 湖 (hú), and 沙滩 (shā tān).We now practicing how to write the characters. 

5th grade:  Students will be able to say the action words: jump跳, sleep睡觉, fly飞, walk走路, crawl爬, bark叫, run跑, and swim游泳. We also talked about what I can do我会, I cannot do我不会, I love to do 我爱and 我不爱I do not love to do.

6th grade: We learn about recycle回收.  Students will be able to write sentences for recycle water水, paper 纸and rain water雨水. They can also write the question why and a reason.

News in a Nutshell 5_21_18

GovDelivery 1 month 4 weeks ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Let me first start out by thanking you for making the teachers feel valued during Teacher Appreciation Week.  I was amazed on how the building and the teachers’ doorways were decorated in show of appreciation by parents and students.  Each day, the teachers were provided with food items and gifts to brighten up their day.  I have never see anything like it throughout my career.  You are the best!

We are currently in the middle of the States’ Standard of Learning (SOL’s) assessments.  The students and teachers have worked hard preparing for the tests and they are all demonstrating a high level of confidence.  I am sure the results will be positive.

As the year winds down there is much to do.  We need to focus on completing tasks to wrap up the current year, as well as planning for the upcoming school year with class lists and staffing.  Please make sure you take advantage in providing feedback on the Student Intention Form.  Please access this link for the Student Intention form: https://goo.gl/forms/rnzPKP2vB0AKfEVc2

New principal update:  We should be very close to a formal announcement of Chesterbrook’s new principal within the next week.  I am confident that Dr. Zuluaga and the Region has done their best in selecting a proven leader to move the school forward in the coming years.  This is an exciting time for the school community. 

On the weekends do you enjoy taking the family to a good movie?  After reading the article below you might want to consider going to a live performance.

Do Students Learn More Watching a Movie or a Live Performance?

            In this article in Educational Researcher, Jay Greene, Heidi Erickson, Angela Watson, and Molly Beck (University of Arkansas/Fayetteville) report on their study comparing students who watched a live performance of a play and students who saw a movie version of the same story. School groups (mostly ninth graders) were randomly chosen to receive free tickets to attend one of five live theater performances over a two-year period: A Christmas Carol, Hamlet, Around the World in 80 Days, Peter and the Starcatcher, and Twelfth Night. Similar classes left school to see film versions in movie theaters, and a control group saw neither a live performance nor a film. About 1,500 students were involved in the study.

Seven or eight weeks afterwards, students took a survey in their classrooms, and the results showed significant benefits to seeing a live performance:

  • Tolerance – Students’ willingness to accept that others may have different viewpoints;
  • Social perspective-taking – A willingness to figure out other people’s motivations;
  • Content knowledge and understanding – Answering six questions on the plot;
  • Vocabulary – Answering five questions on words used in the production;
  • Interest in seeing live theater performances in the future.

Significantly, say the researchers, “the movie treatment does not seem to have a robust effect on any of these outcomes… It is educationally significant and a bit surprising that watching a movie is not a particularly effective way of conveying content knowledge while watching a play is. Watching movies is an extremely common school practice, but it may produce little learning. Going to see a play, on the other hand, is less common but appears much more effective.” This is true even though the production values of most films are superior to those of plays that students might see on the stage. But the in-person experience, say the authors, “appears to trump the skill of the actors.”             Why do live performances have more impact? “Our best explanation,” say the authors, “is that theater is a window for students to a broader world… Plays may be more effective than movies in helping students understand and accept that broader world because we react differently to human beings acting out a story in front of us than to representations of human beings on a screen. The in-person experience may create greater emotional connections.” “The Play’s the Thing: Experimentally Examining the Social and Cognitive Effects of School Field Trips to Live Theater Performances” by Jay Greene, Heidi Erickson, Angela Watson, and Molly Beck in Educational Researcher, May 2018 (Vol. 47, #4, p. 246-254), http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.3102/0013189X18761034; Greene can be reached at jpg@uark.edu.  

Enjoy the sunny weather!

A message from Advanced Academics

Dear Families,

As we approach the end of the school year, I have some bittersweet news to share - I will be leaving Chesterbrook and taking on an Advanced Academic Resource Teacher/Instructional Coaching position at Olde Creek Elementary in Fairfax. It will help me continue to expand my skillset and collaborate with colleagues as they build an Advanced Academic/Project Based Learning community at their school. I have had a wonderful time here, working with some of the most dedicated staff, driven students, and thoughtful families I’ve ever met. I have learned so much and enjoyed organizing our advanced academic programs to reach all students. While I’m excited for the new opportunity ahead of me, I will miss Chesterbrook very much.

The fantastic news is that Amy Vallath, our Level IV AAP Lead and Fourth Grade Team Lead, will be taking over as Advanced Academic Resource Teacher next year! She was appointed as a pool candidate and selected by the Advanced Academic Programs Office for the position. I know she will continue to support Chesterbrook with her incredible knowledge of AAP, our community, and experience as an educator.

Keep in touch, and I wish our students the best of luck in their educational endeavors!

All the best,

Wendy Stobbe

  • Use good singing technique while singing common patriotic songs.
  • Critically listen to music for its parts and instrumentation.

We identify these differences as the musical form and give them labels like “ABA” or “AABB.” 

By the end of this quarter your child should:

  • Be able to use “singer’s secrets” to sing using good vocal technique.
  • Move to the beat of a song.
  • Critically listen to music for musical form
Kinder

In Kindergarten we learned the function of notes and how some are longer and others are shorter.  We composed music using little “note cards” and also worked on writing down the rhythms we hear (rhythmic dictation).  We are now starting a unit on the instruments of the orchestra.  We are learning what makes an orchestra different from other bands of instruments and how an orchestra and a neighborhood are similar.    

By the end of this quarter your child should:

  • Be able to use whole, quarter, eighth and sixteenth notes and the rests to write down a 4 beat rhythm that they hear.
  • Understand the dynamic marks pp, p, mp, mf, f, ff, crescendo and decrescendo.

5th/6th grade chorus

We have been working hard on our solfege and sight reading skills. These are really hard and take a lot of practice and we’re picking them up fast! There will be no more concerts, but we are working on a final piece to record and present to parents.

The All County Chorus

I would like to give a HUGE thank you to all of the parents who made this day possible.  Without you, we would not have any rehearsals that would make the day possible.  Thank you for ALL of your support!  If you have any feedback to make the experience better for others, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

If you were a part of the experience and want to relive it or if you’ve been reading these articles and are wondering what this “ACCF” thing is all about, Red Apple TV will have you covered.  Almost every day  between May 9 and July 8 the concert will be broadcast at 7pm.  You will see 1,000 of Fairfax County’s 6th graders perform their 10 pieces featuring words in over 10 languages!  It is as amazing as it sounds!

The ACCF crew will have another chance to perform.  We have been asked to perform for the promotion ceremony!  More details to come for that day.
