Updates from Lee HS's Student Services Department

Week of October 7, 2019

 

Calendar:

October 8:             Juniors meet with their Counselors through Advisory Classes

October 14:           Student Holiday

October 16:           PSAT/9th Grade Transition Day

October 20-21:      College Fairs

October 21-31:      FCPS Federal Survey Form/Impact Aid Collection

November 1:          End of 1st Quarter (Study hard, Lancers!)

PSAT Day & 9th Grade Transition Day: October 16, 2019

On Wednesday, October 16, Lee High School will operate on a two hour early release schedule. School hours will be from 8:10am-12:55pm and school buses will run as usual. All FCPS Academy classes are cancelled so that academy students may participate in planned activities at their base schools. 9th graders will work with teachers on college/career/future planning and should bring their laptops to school. They will complete lessons and activities through Naviance Student, located in Blackboard. 10th and 11th grade students will take the PSAT Test (free of charge). They need to bring #2 pencils (not mechanical) and an approved calculator. Students may not have electronic devices (phones, SmartWatches, timers, laptops) in the testing rooms and the recommendation is to leave these items at home for the day. Students need to know their home mailing address, FCPS ID number, and a personal email address on test day. 12th grade students will meet in the Auditorium at 8:10 for a class meeting, followed by taking their class panoramic photo (wear a white t-shirt), and finally, for select students, CPR Training (a graduation requirement) will be held. Seniors may work on college/career planning at home when these planned activities are completed. School lunch on October 16 will be available to all students.

 

Parent Meetings: You are invited!

FCPS College Fairs

Fairfax County Public Schools high school students and their families are encouraged to attend the 2019 College Fair on Sunday, October 20, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Fair Oaks Mall, and College Night on Monday, October 21, 7 to 9 p.m., at Hayfield Secondary School. Both events provide opportunities for college-bound students and their families to gather information from a variety of schools. Details and registration are available online

 

The 2020-21 FAFSA Form Is Now Available; College Access Fairfax Is Here to Help

Parents of high school seniors—did you know that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open? Parents are encouraged to work with their students to complete the FAFSA as early as possible and definitely before March 1, 2020, as you prepare for your child to begin college in the fall of 2020. Parents and students should start by creating an FSA ID and then begin the FAFSA.

 

Also, thanks to our partners at College Access Fairfax, there are a variety of workshops available at multiple locations throughout the year to help you plan and prepare. Workshops are open to parents and students of all ages and include both information seminars as well as one-on-one help to complete the FAFSA. Individual schools will also host annual college planning nights. It’s never too early to start learning about how to pay for college. Get more information at the College Access Fairfax website and read your school newsletter to find more information about events near you. 

 

Student Schedules

Student Schedule Change Process

Beginning Tuesday, October 1, students may email their counselor to initiate a schedule change request. Forms will be available to students and the input of the student and different adults (including parents, teachers, counselors, Case Managers, and IB Coordinators) will be required. We want students to excel in the courses they selected. Therefore, a schedule change is a last resort option, after multiple attempts have been made to reach success. Please know that many of our classes are at capacity. If a schedule change cannot be granted, other options will be reviewed. To discuss the process or to receive a form, students should email their counselors. Requests to change a schedule should be received by October 31.

 

Grading & Reporting

We are now past the interim point of the first quarter. Parents and students are encouraged to review student academic standing in all courses and begin planning for the final weeks of the quarter. The end of the quarter is on November 1, and many teachers close gradebooks prior to that date. Study hard, Lancers, and let’s make it a successful first quarter!

 

Student Health & Wellness

E-Cigarette (“Vape”) Health Advisory

In light of recent cases of severe respiratory illnesses associated with the use of e-cigarettes and “vaping” among youth and young adults, the Fairfax County Health Department has posted a health advisory.  The advisory can be found here: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/severe-lung-illness-associated-vaping-what-you-need-know. As well, parents are encouraged to review the following website, compiled by FCPS, to better understand vaping and available resources. https://www.fcps.edu/vaping/parents

 

SAPS Position in FCPS (Substance Abuse and Prevention Specialist)

As a support to students and families across all of FCPS, Regional SAPS have been hired. Marty Joyner is the SAPS for our Region of the County, and is available to help students with any substance abuse/substance abuse concern. Students and parents should contact the school counselor to receive the referral form. This service is free and confidential.

 

Lee HS Career Center

College representatives coming to Lee HS

Juniors and seniors may attend these college information sessions. Students need to register for these events in their Naviance Student, which is located on their Blackboard Site.

Student Meetings with Counselors 

Junior Class Meetings

School counselors have completed their class meetings with seniors and freshmen. We will be meeting with juniors through their advisory classes beginning on October 8.

  

Federal Survey Forms (Impact Aid)

During the week of October 21, all students will receive an Impact Aid form for their parent/guardian to complete. Fairfax County Public Schools receives $3,000,000 annually as a result of this federal funding. These forms are important to us and we request one back from each student. Forms will be due by October 30, 2019. For information on this program, please go to https://www.fcps.edu/impact.

  

Volunteer Opportunities for Students

All Lancers are encouraged to participate in community service to learn new skills, address their career interests, and give back to their community. Students who complete at least 50 hours of community service in high school are eligible for honors when they graduate (such as the State Civic Seal and the FCPS Service Learning cord). Students should track their hours, obtain supervisor signatures for hours completed, and save their records. Below are some volunteer opportunities:

New Principal Search Process

A new search is underway for a new principal at Lee.  Ms. Deirdre Lavery, our current principal, is retiring December 31, 2019.  Please see below for important information regarding the process.

 

Feedback/Input process

A critical component of the process is your written input.  We invite you to offer your individual written input (preferably via e-mail) regarding the skills, experience and leadership characteristics needed for Lee High School.  You might also address any challenges or issues that a new principal will need to address.  Input is confidential and will not be discussed at the meeting. We welcome your input now, upon receipt of this message, and are hopeful that many of you will share your thoughts.  Please e-mail your ideas to apmcgeehan@fcps.edu or mail your suggestions to Adam McGeehan in Human Resources, 8115 Gatehouse Road, Suite 1114, Falls Church, VA   22042-1203 by Friday, October 4, 2019.  Suggestions for input may be found below:

Fairfax County Public Schools mission is to provide creative, knowledgeable, and talented leadership to ensure student success.  To determine the best match for the leadership needs at your school, parent and staff perspectives will be used to screen candidate resumes and develop interview questions.  Please provide input detailing the skills, experiences, and leadership characteristics needed at your school.  Include challenges and issues that the new principal will need to address.  Principal professional skills include instructional leadership, school climate, human resources, organizational management, and communication and community relations.

We ask that any community member that submits their name as a candidate to serve on the panel confirm they are available for the entire day (7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.) The panel may not take the entire day, but in case it does, we want to be sure all are available for the entire process.

Community representatives should be those who are committed to the principal selection process and the future of Lee High School. The panel members should represent the diversity of the school, the various ages/grade levels of children in the school, various programs/activities in which their children are involved, etc.  If you are interested in serving on this panel, please submit the following information to Liz McGhan, Lee HS PTSA President, at leeptsapresident@gmail.com no later than this Friday, October 4, 2019

Updates from Lee HS's Student Services Department

Week of September 30, 2019

 

Parent Meetings: You are invited!

Hispanic Parent Night (conducted in Spanish)

Hispanic Parent Night will be held October 3, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in the Auditorium. This event is open to students (grades 9-12) and parents. Come hear about the resources that the College & Career Center has to offer, college financial aid, college application process from the University of Delaware and Pathway to NOVA.  The Lee High School Spanish teachers will be giving a presentation as well about Lee High School. The presentation will be delivered in Spanish and childcare will be provided for children ages 5-12.

 

FCPS College Fairs

Fairfax County Public Schools high school students and their families are encouraged to attend the 2019 College Fair on Sunday, October 20, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Fair Oaks Mall, and College Night on Monday, October 21, 7 to 9 p.m., at Hayfield Secondary School. Both events provide opportunities for college-bound students and their families to gather information from a variety of schools. Details and registration are available online

 

Student Schedules

Student Schedule Change Process

Beginning Tuesday, October 1, students may email their counselor to initiate a schedule change request. Forms will be available to students and the input of the student and different adults (including parents, teachers, counselors, Case Managers, and IB Coordinators) will be required. We want students to excel in the courses they selected. Therefore, a schedule change is a last resort option, after multiple attempts have been made to reach success. Please know that many of our classes are at capacity. If a schedule change cannot be granted, other options will be reviewed. To discuss the process or to receive a form, students should email their counselors. Requests to change a schedule should be received by October 31.

 

Grading & Reporting

We are now at the interim point to the end of the first quarter. Parents and students are encouraged to review student academic standing in all courses and begin planning for the final weeks of the quarter. The end of the quarter is on November 1, and many teachers close gradebooks prior to that date. Study hard, Lancers, and let’s make it a successful first quarter!

 

Student Health & Wellness

E-Cigarette (“Vape”) Health Advisory

In light of recent cases of severe respiratory illnesses associated with the use of e-cigarettes and “vaping” among youth and young adults, the Fairfax County Health Department has posted a health advisory.  The advisory can be found here: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/severe-lung-illness-associated-vaping-what-you-need-know. As well, parents are encouraged to review the following website, compiled by FCPS, to better understand vaping and available resources. https://www.fcps.edu/vaping/parents

 

SAPS Position in FCPS (Substance Abuse and Prevention Specialist)

As a support to students and families across all of FCPS, Regional SAPS have been hired. Marty Joyner is the SAPS for our Region of the County, and is available to help students with any substance abuse/substance abuse concern. Students and parents should contact the school counselor to receive the referral form. This service is free and confidential.

 

Lee HS Career Center

Student Meetings with Counselors 

Junior Class Meetings

School counselors have completed their class meetings with seniors and freshmen. We will be meeting with juniors through their advisory classes beginning on October 8. More information is to come.

Individual Student-to-Counselor Meetings

It is important to all staff at Lee High School that school counselors meet the individual needs of each student.  A lot of this work occurs during individual student/counselor conferences.  Currently, when students need to speak with their counselor, they go to the Student Services Department and wait in lines.  This is not efficient for the student, counselor, or the teacher, as many students are missing a lot of class time simply waiting.  This has an impact on their education for the class time they are missing, on the teacher who needs to catch them up on what they missed, and on the counselor who may not be prepared for the meeting’s topic.  We are in the process of reorganizing our systems to support our students and staff in the most efficient way possible, beginning with the procedure for an individual student/counselor meeting. 

**New Procedure:  Students are asked to email their school counselor when they would like to meet with them individually.  We will make every effort to see students within 48 hours of their request.  After students receive an appointment time through the counselor’s emailed response, we will be able to assure that the student needs are met and they are in class, learning, for the maximum time possible.  Students, staff, and parents/guardians will receive more communication surrounding individual student/counselor conferences in the coming weeks.  To access each counselor’s email address, please go to:  https://leehs.fcps.edu/student-services/staff   

***Any student who is in crisis or who is experiencing an emergency should see their counselor right away.  We want to support any student in this situation immediately, and we have a School Social Worker and School Psychologist to assist students as well.
