Thank You Veterans

To recognize the sacrifices of our many military members and their families, Principal Wolfe and the entire Aldrin staff thank the brave men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. You have protected us and ensured our freedom, while your families sacrificed so much.  We can never thank you enough, but on this Veteran's Day we'd like to show our respect, honor and gratitude.

Thank you to our soldiers, past and present.  We salute you and thank you for your service to the United States of America.

Dear Aldrin Families,   

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you!  

Several volunteers certified by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD) have generously offered to visit Aldrin Elementary with their certified therapy dogs at some point during this school year. The first dog volunteer, Nike the Havapoo, will begin visits on November 11th.   

We are thrilled with all the possibilities that having trained therapy dogs at school will offer, including working with students in small groups, reading with children, and helping children to practice their fluency skills. Additionally, the simple presence of a therapy dog at school can bring joy, provide non-judgmental support, and lower the stress levels of children, which optimizes learning capacity. Every therapy dog that plans to visit Aldrin has passed all the requirements of ATD, is insured, and is up to date on vaccinations. You can learn more about the Alliance of Therapy Dogs at https://www.therapydogs.com/.  

If a therapy dog is going to be visiting your child’s class, you will be notified individually. This is simply a notice that your children may occasionally see some of our therapy dogs in the halls. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or myself at casalerno@fcps.edu.  

Sincerely, 

Casey Salerno 

School Counselor 

casalerno@fcps.edu  

 

Estimadas familias de Aldrin,

¡Estoy encantado de compartir con ustedes algunas noticias interesantes!

Varios voluntarios certificados por Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD) se han ofrecido generosamente a visitar la Primaria Aldrin con sus perros de terapia certificados en algún momento durante este año escolar. El primer perro voluntario, Nike the Havapoo, comenzará las visitas el 11 de noviembre.

Estamos encantados con todas las posibilidades que ofrecerá tener perros de terapia entrenados en la escuela, incluido trabajar con estudiantes en grupos pequeños, leer con niños y ayudar a los niños a practicar sus habilidades de fluidez. Además, la simple presencia de un perro de terapia en la escuela puede traer alegría, brindar apoyo sin prejuicios y reducir los niveles de estrés de los niños, lo que optimiza la capacidad de aprendizaje. Cada perro de terapia que planea visitar Aldrin ha pasado todos los requisitos de ATD, está asegurado y está al día con las vacunas. Puede obtener más información sobre Alliance of Therapy Dogs en https://www.therapydogs.com/

Si un perro de terapia va a visitar la clase de su hijo, se le notificará individualmente. Esto es simplemente un aviso de que sus hijos pueden ver ocasionalmente a algunos de nuestros perros de terapia en los pasillos. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo o conmigo en casalerno@fcps.edu .

Atentamente,

Casey Salerno

Consejero de la escuela

News From Aldrin Elementary

GovDelivery2 months 3 weeks ago

BRING A WATER BOTTLE

Due to safety restrictions, we cannot use the school's water fountains in the traditional way, but our kiddos get thirsty, especially during the hot, humid weeks we've experienced.  We are using some fountains, sinks, and coolers for water refills.  Plans are underway to have new water bottle filling stations installed with the support of the PTA.

All of these methods require a re-usable water bottle.  We have given out over 100 bottles when students forgot them.  We have also given out commercial bottled water, when a student needs it.  If your child could come to school with a water bottle (labeled with their name), and try to keep track of it, we would be good "green" neighbors of the earth.  We'd prefer to re-use and not encourage a disposable community.  Thank you!.

Picture Day--September 23, 2021

Barksdale will be at Aldrin on Thursday, September 23, 2021 for Fall Picture Day.

An order flier was sent home in the Thursday Recorder of  September 2nd.   

If you'd like to order photos, please return your flier with payment no later than September 23rd.  There are opportunities to pay on-line using a credit card.  Please read the ordering information carefully (which you can see below and is posted to the Aldrin website).

All students will have their photos taken for the yearbook, even if you don't care to make a purchase. Barksdale practices social distancing and Covid mitigation strategies.

We need two (2) parent volunteers to help during Picture Day.  Barksdale will provide you with a $25 Barksdale gift card for helping during Picture Day.

For more information email Mrs. Aschenbach at LSAschenbach@fcps.edu or Mrs. Naski at SHNaski@fcps.edu.

Aldrin 1st Week News

GovDelivery3 months 1 week ago

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

First Week of 2021-22--A Success!

We are happy to be starting our second week of school with our kiddos.  We spent our first week re-learning routines and building relationships.  As the weeks go on, we will be delving deeper into instructional programs and intervention to bring our students the best academic opportunities available and to provide the in-person curriculum they've missed!

To ensure a safe start to the school year, layered prevention strategies were in place in all schools, including wearing a mask while indoors. The two most important things you can do to help us keep each other safe this year is to get vaccinated when you are eligible and wear a mask indoors. Read more about why these measures are important and how we’ll practice safety this fall.

It is important that you visit this link so that you can reinforce correctly wearing masks, social distancing, getting vaccinated (when available for elementary students), and screening for illness.  Aldrin (with FCPS help) will continue to provide exemplary cleaning and disinfecting; ventilation improvements, awareness of Covid-19 exposure protocols, and enforcement of protocols provided by Fairfax County Health Department, Commonwealth of Virginia, and the CDC.  

Transportation

We experienced a late bus at dismissal most days the first week.  We'd like to thank parents for being patient and understanding the issues facing the Transportation Department.  Last Thursday, the School Board approved a salary rate increase for bus drivers.  Fingers crossed that this rate increase will translate soon into an increase in the number of drivers once new employees are trained!

Important Beginning Information

Aldrin Elementary is excited to welcome students and staff back in-person 5 days a week for the 2021-2022 school year.

  • Bell Schedule: 9:20 a.m. to 4:05 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Main Office Hours:  8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p m. Monday through Friday.
  • Breakfast and Lunch: When we return strong this week, FCPS’ Food and Nutrition Services staff will be ready to serve healthy meals to students and staff.  All students receive FREE breakfast and lunch. Find out more about school meals here.
  • Grade level supply lists for the upcoming school year can be found on our website front page https://aldrines.fcps.edu/, identified by grade level.
  • As shared by FCPS, staff and students will wear masks at all times indoors and on school buses in the fall. Masks will not be required when actively eating/drinking or when outside during recess, PE, or other activities. Universal masking is a critical safety mitigation factor in ensuring all students can return to our buildings.
Transportation

Bus stop and route information: Bus stops and route information were shared with families via the ParentVue accounts on August 13. All staff and students riding a bus will be required to wear a mask. For more information about bus transportation, including how to access the Bus Delay Notification System, visit the Transportation page.

Please make sure that you arrive at your stop location 10 minutes before the time listed

As a reminder, kindergarten students must be met at the stop by a trusted adult or student who is in 7th grade or older. 

Due to the shortage of bus drivers across FCPS and for the need to try and limit as many double-back runs as possible, the Transportation office has informed schools that guest bus riders will not be allowed at the current time. At the elementary level, this usually means riding a friend’s bus to go home with them. Buses will be closer to capacity than usual, so they need to make sure that there are no guest riders on buses so that they can help avoid as many double-back runs as possible. Thank you in advance for adhering to this rule.  

Dining Room Assistant Needed Do you love our school community and want to work here? We are currently looking for a Dining Room Assistant (Host) to work in the cafeteria.

Description: Assists students during lunchtime. Supervises student clean-up, keeps order and dismisses students to their teachers.

Qualifications: Friendly, energetic, and assertive in maintaining expectations of cafeteria behavior, and loves working with children.

To Apply: Email, Ms. Katie Friedman at KAFriedman@fcps.edu
