10th Grade Preparing for College Program

Dear Sophomore Families,

Are you beginning to think about life after high school? Does the college admissions process leave you confused or stressed? Hayfield Student Services has answers for you!

Erin Slater, Director of Admissions at Randolph-Macon College, will present “Preparing for College”, an interactive workshop that explains how to find the right college match for you or your student.

Parents and guardians are invited to hear “Preparing for College” at our Sophomore Parent Night on Tuesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Middle School Lecture Hall. All sophomore parents and guardians are welcome to attend. No RSVP is necessary.

Sophomore students will see this presentation during the school day as part of their English class on March 18 or 19. They do not need to sign up- teachers will bring them to the event. Our evening event will cover much of the same material as the daytime program, but we will do a different activity with parents/ guardians.

If you have questions, please contact Amy Ferguson at: ahferguson@fcps.edu.

FCPSOn

BrightBytes Survey and FCPSOn

February 28, 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian,

A County-wide initiative called FCPSOn is coming to Hayfield Secondary School for the 2019 - 2020 school year. FCPSOn is a digital transformation initiative that provides students with access to a computer to use for learning.  Schools in the Chantilly Pyramid and eLearning Backpack high schools adopted FCPSOn as part of a pilot program in 2016. In August, all Hayfield students in grades 9 through 12 will be issued an FCPS laptop to use for learning at school and at home. Students in grades 7 and 8 will be provided access to digital learning within their classrooms.  

This is an extraordinary opportunity for Hayfield students! It will help ensure they have equitable access to technology and to instructional practices that support their development of Portrait of a Graduate attributes including communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. Your student’s future employers will expect these skills, along with tech fluency and innovation. FCPSOn helps prepare students to meet those demands.

I recognize the incredible responsibility that comes with a digital transformation. It includes teaching as well as modeling digital citizenship, so our students adopt safe, smart, and responsible online practices. It also means empowering students to make healthy, balanced choices regarding their device usage. FCPSOn reinforces these practices within the learning process and beyond. It creates a shared responsibility between school and home that thoughtfully supports students as they incorporate these new strategies.

Rest assured that devices will not replace teachers. The Hayfield mission and vision will remain focused on student engagement, collaboration, and caring citizenship. FCPSOn will provide our students and staff ongoing, dynamic learning opportunities that will support our core values.

In preparation for the implementation of FCPSOn next year, high school students and parents are being invited to participate in the BrightBytes survey. This survey provides FCPS with baseline information about digital citizenship, levels of access, how technology is used in some of our classrooms, and other digital insights.  Data from this survey will help set goals and measure progress next school year. This survey will come from an FCPS central distribution, so please be on the lookout for that email. The window extends from March 1 to March 15, 2019.

Please stay tuned for more information regarding our school’s adoption of FCPSOn. In the interim, you may visit the FCPSOn webpage for more information. Feel free to contact me or our Associate Principal Alfonso Smith with questions.

Sincerely,

Martin Grimm

Principal
