Dear Whitman Community,

 

We have certainly had a active Winter weather pattern over the past few weeks.  I hope everyone is staying healthy, safe, and warm.  You can review the procedures for weather closing and delays at this site

 

Next week, the Whitman Faculty will be preparing for the return to in-person learning for families and students that have chosen that option.  Many teachers will begin instructing from their classrooms starting February 23.  Some teachers will remain virtual  for the remainder of the school year and they will be sharing that news with students next week if they have not done so already.  To welcome our teachers back next week, the PTSA has generously funded box lunches on Tuesday from Panera.  Thank you to the PTSA and all the families who donated to fund this!  We are so fortunate to have such a supportive community!

 

On Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26, most students will have asynchronous instruction like we have on Mondays.  Teachers will post assignments for students to complete.  This is to allow for additional planning time for teachers to prepare for concurrent instruction.  If you have any questions, reach out to your grade level administrators.

 

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for all you do for our students.

 

Dr. Craig Herring

 

   

Greetings from the Whitman Library!

We are excited to present these book recommendations to recognize Black History Month. Our theme is Celebrating the Black Family. We’ve showcased stories from all different genres in our library; included are short teasers of each book, and links to book talks or trailers to give students and parents more information about each one. In other news, we are happy to continue to offer Bookmobile services; the next Bookmobile will run on Monday, February 22. Students can request print books from the library by visiting the Destiny online catalog to submit their requests. For more information and announcements about all-things-library, we invite you all to follow the Wildcat Librarian on Twitter!

 

Looking forward to providing the best library experience for our Whitman students and families through the rest of the school year.

Dear Whitman Families,

 

Beginning Tuesday, February 16, we will have a new bell schedule (see below).  School will still begin at 7:30 AM but will end at 2:00 PM.  This is anticipation of our return to in-person learning in early March.  To answer any questions families may have regarding the return to school, I will be holding a Virtual Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, February 23 at 6 pm.  I will send links out prior to the event.  The sessions will be held in English and in Spanish.

 

The monthly Whitman Family Market will be held on Wednesday, February 17 beginning at 2:30 pm.  Free fresh produce and groceries are available to families for as long as it lasts.  We thank the Capital Area Food Bank for their continued support.

 

Monday, February 15 is a student and staff holiday. I hope everyone has a restful and happy weekend.

 

Best,

Dr. Craig Herring

Dear Whitman Community,

 

The FCPS School Board approved the Return to School timeline proposed by Superintendent Brabrand at their regular meeting last night.  For families that have chosen to return to in-person learning two days per week, grade 8 students will begin the week of March 1 and grade 7 students will begin the week of March 8.  To help parents and students learn more about returning to in-person learning including necessary safety precautions and procedures, I will be holding a virtual Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 6:00 PM.  We will have sessions in both English and Spanish.  I will send out the links to the meetings closer to the event.  For families that cannot attend, the session will be recorded and sent out later that week.  I hope you can join us then.

 

I also wanted to highlight several outstanding Wildcat staff!  We are proud of their contributions to the Whitman community and I hope you will join me in congratulating them.

 

Whitman’s Outstanding Teacher:  Ms. Karen Bullock, Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher

Whitman’s Outstanding New Teacher:  Ms. Angela Perez, English Special Education Teacher

Whitman’s Outstanding Operational Employee:  Ms. Joanna Ocasio, Student Services Assistant

 

Way to go, Wildcats!

 

Thank you for all you do for our students and I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Principal's Message Dear Whitman Community,   National School Counseling week is February 1-5 with a theme of “School Counselors:  All In for All Students”.  The purpose is to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors to school communities.  It is meant to highlight the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.  Join me in recognizing Mrs. Hooper, Ms. Roberts, Ms. Deck, and Mr. Fisher, Whitman’s amazing counselors!!   On February 2, the FCPS School Board will hold a work session to (hopefully) finalize our Return to School Plan.  Tune in if you want to hear the discussion.  Once the plan is approved, I will be holding a Town Hall meeting to answer any questions parents or students may have about returning to in-person learning.    Thank you for all you are doing and have a great weekend!  Looks like it will be a frigid one with the possibility of snow!   Sincerely, Dr. Craig Herring

    MVHS Academic Advising

Greetings Rising 9th - 12th Grade Families, 

Academic Advising season is here!  Our school counselors have begun meeting with students for grade level pre-advising lessons and we know that all families are eager to learn more about the course selection process and course options for next school year.  Academic Advising has four major components: 

  1. Pre-Advising Grade Level Meetings:  Counselors will meet with students in groups for a quick overview of the process, graduation requirements for their class and introduce them to various elective options.
  2. Course Exploration:  Students with the support of their parents/guardians will explore courses for next school year.  
    1. This year MVHS is developing a curriculum/elective fair website full of videos, resources and google sites that will help families explore their options.  The site will be made available to families the week of January 18th. 
    2. MVHS will also host a virtual Curriculum Night on Tuesday, January 19th.  Interested families must RSVP by noon on Tuesday to receive links and important updates. Click here to  RSVP now.   
  3. Course Selection:  This year, Mount Vernon HS will be using the online course request feature available in StudentVUE.  Once students have completed pre-advising with their school counselor, they may login to StudentVUE and begin to select courses by clicking on the “Course Request” tab.  This feature allows students to enter their courses prior to meeting with their school counselor, maximizing the time they have during individual academic advising.
  4. Counselor Meetings:  Each student will have the opportunity to meet individually with their school counselor to review course selections, graduation plans and to address any questions or concerns.

Principal's Message

Dear Whitman Community,

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  I wanted to take this opportunity to share some schedule changes for next week.  On Monday, January 18, we will have a student and staff holiday in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr.  On Tuesday, we will have a normal school day with synchronous learning in periods 1, 3, 5, and 7.  The School Board designated Wednesday, January 20 as a student and staff holiday in observance of the Presidential Inauguration.  On Thursday, we will return to a normal schedule once again having synchronous learning in periods 1, 3, 5, 7.  On Friday, we will have a 2 hour early release so periods 2, 4, 6, and 8 will be shortened so the day concludes at 12:15 PM in observance of the end of the second quarter.  I know that’s a lot to digest so I hope this helps!

Additionally, I wanted to remind everyone about the upcoming PTSA meeting on January 21.  We hope to see you there as we answer questions about next year, discuss course selection, and meet staff and PTSA members.

Dear Whitman Community,

During the month of January, the Whitman Student Services team will be working closely with your child to select courses for 2021-2022 school year.  In December, Whitman hosted Curriculum Night for our rising grade 7 and grade 8 families.  If you missed it, we recorded the sessions (see below).

Parents/guardians are encouraged to be a part of these choices for next year.  After counselors have captured the courses in SIS, families can review the courses requested beginning March 12, 2021 in Parent Vue and Student Vue.  The Whitman counseling team is always available to answer any of your questions.

Rising grade 8 students and families:

Rising grade 8 students (current seventh grade students): On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, during Wildcat time/ Advisory Period 4, students will view an introduction from the Whitman school counseling team on the process of selecting courses and receive links to the Whitman course catalog.  The course catalog offers descriptions of all courses offered at Whitman MS. Please keep in mind, some courses are subject to change.  Counselors are available to take your questions.  Our goal is to meet with every seventh grade student by January 21, 2021 for course requests.  Course requests for school year 2021-22 will be viewed in SIS through Parent Vue on March 12, 2021 and final changes are due June 1, 2021. Final schedules will be provided in August.

Academic Advising/Curriculum Video:  https://whitmanms.fcps.edu/node/4671

Curriculum Night Resources:

Rising grade 9 students and families:

Rising grade 9 students (current eighth grade students): Students will need to check their FCPS student account (student ID@fcpsschools.net) for an invitation to join a group of student peers with future Mount Vernon High School counselors.  On Monday, January 11, 2021, MVHS counselors will present information about the high school course selection process for the 2021-22 school year. We are so excited for you to begin your search and encourage students to have discussions with parents/guardians to prepare to transition to high school.

This introduction on January 11 will be the first of many opportunities to learn about high school options and high school life.  During the week of January 18, students will get access to the MVHS curriculum and electives fair website and students should be on the lookout for a virtual curriculum night for students and families.  MVHS school counselors look forward to meeting with students later this spring to ensure all questions are answered.

Parents, please help students check their FCPS gmail for an invitation from MVHS counselors with time and link to join on Monday, January 11.  Below provides a list of student's last name beginning initials and the assigned MVHS counselor name.

Building Leaders for Advancing Science and Technology (BLAST) is a FREE educational program of the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, designed to ignite a passion in students who already show an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our hope is that the BLAST 3-day residential, on-campus experience, which is packed with demonstrations and collaborative activities led by college faculty, will inspire students to envision a career in a STEM field and motivate them to expand the number of STEM-related classes they take in higher grade levels. 

 

Many students who attend BLAST go on to participate in our advanced educational programs, two of which offer free college credits through dual enrollment with Thomas Nelson Community College. Participating students in these competitive programs develop advanced skills related to the 5 C's of the Profile of a Virginia Graduate: critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, collaboration, and citizenship, in addition to building STEM-specific knowledge and skills. While participation in BLAST is not a prerequisite to attending any of our other educational programs, it is an ideal opportunity for younger students to determine if STEM is the right path for them. 

 

Please help us ensure every interested student is aware of the opportunity to apply to BLAST by sharing our flyer via: 

  • Teachers of math, technology, engineering, or science classes. 
  • Sponsors of extracurricular activities related to science, technology, engineering, or math. 
  • Social Media outlets, such as your school's Facebook and/or Twitter page. 
  • Online newsletter for your school or organization. 

 

Thank you for your time and support of Virginia Space Grant Consortium's education programs. Applications for the Summer 2021 BLAST sessions will open online November 13.  

 

We look forward to receiving applications from your students!
