Federal Impact Aid Survey

7th Grade MWEE field trip

A message from Principal, Amy Miller:

Dear Kilmer Families, 

Thank you to PTA for breakfast on the school planning day. The staff really enjoyed this special treat. We appreciate the continued support from the PTA and the entire Kilmer community. The next PTA meeting is on Monday, October 18 at 7:00 PM. The meeting will be virtual. 

This week our Seventh Grade Students went on the MWEE (Meaningful Watershed Educational  Experience) field trip. While on the field trip, the students collect and classify various organisms from Burke Lake. They take what they learned in the classroom about water quality and test Burke Lake to see if it is a healthy ecosystem. They also participate in an interactive station on biodiversity. 

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller, Principal 

Lost and Found

We have accumulated many misplaced items. Please encourage your student to check for their lost items in the lost and found area in the cafeteria. 

Survey for Federal Impact Aid

FCPS will be asking all families to fill out a Survey for Federal Impact Aid. Students will receive the form during PAWS Advisory (4th period) on Wednesday, October 20. All forms must be signed and returned to Kilmer by November 5. All results are confidential

Returning this form is important because information from this survey results in an additional $3 million in grants each year from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds are used to support all Fairfax County Public Schools and Centers.

For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to their school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the boxes in Section 3. More information is available online.

Spirit Week

Kilmer’s Student Council Association is excited to announce our first Spirit week, October 25th-29th.  Show your school spirit and celebrate the end of an awesome 1st quarter by dressing up each day.  On Monday, wear your pajamas to school.  Tuesday is career day – dress in the outfit for the career you want to have when you grow up.  On Wednesday, wear something from your favorite decade.  Thursday is Team color day – wear the color assigned to your team to show your team spirit.  Team colors will be announced by History, English and Science teachers next week.  Friday is storybook character day – dress up as  your favorite character from your favorite book.  Costumes cannot cover a student’s entire face or include face and body paint.  We can’t wait to see all the school spirit soon!

Digital Citizenship Week 10/18-10/22

Digital Citizenship Week kicks off next week! We’ll be doing activities through morning announcements and PAWS that promote students' well-being in an increasingly digital life. Plus, students will reflect on how they can use technology to be a positive influence in their community. You can join in at home by accessing conversation starters and seeing some of the materials your students will see by going to the All Parent Course in Schoology! As a reminder, your username and password for Schoology are the same as your ParentVue account.

National Hispanic Heritage Month- learning about cultures, histories and contributions.

A message from Principal, Amy Miller:

Dear Kilmer Families,

It was exciting to join Eighth Grade Civics this week in the library. The students were learning to apply the OPVL structure to sources they were evaluating. OPVL stands for: Origin, Purpose,Value, and Limitations. The sources included print materials, social media, photographs, and websites. In Family and Consumer Science, the students are evaluating recipes and a variety of cooking scenarios as they learn about food safety. Science 7’s aquariums are up and running. Students are learning about food chains and food webs. We are anticipating the arrival of the fish soon. 

We would like to welcome three new staff members to the Kilmer Team: 

 Rasan Murtza : Student Monitor

 Doug Brammer  : Student Monitor

Jill McAfee : Long Term Substitute

Monday, October 11 is a Student Holiday. We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend. 

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller, Principal

Water Bottles 

Kilmer has three water filling stations around the building.  We encourage students to have a reusable water bottle to fill throughout the day. Water fountains are to be used as filling stations only throughout FCPS this year as part of the layered prevention strategy.

Student Rights and Responsibilities Parent Signature

Thank you to all parents who have been able to sign the SR&R; we are still missing many signatures.

Each year, we ask parents to review, sign, and return the SR&R to their child’s school. In ParentVue, you may now download and digitally sign the SR&R. Every parent/guardian with a ParentVUE account will see the SR&R upon login to ParentVUE until the SR&R acknowledgement has been completed.

Once you log on, you will see the following message:

Your name in the digital signature box must match the parent/guardian’s first and last name in SIS exactly before the signature will be accepted.

PTA Reflections Contest

A message from Principal, Amy Miller

Dear Kilmer Families, 

This week, FCPS shared the StreamIN/CheckIN process for students who are paused, quarantined, or isolated due to COVID-19. StreamIN/CheckIN will give students who are paused, quarantined, or isolated a way to stay connected with their classes until they return to in-person learning. Click here to learn more about StreamIN/CheckIN. 

At Kilmer, if a student is paused, quarantined or isolated due to COVID-19, the student’s administrator will contact the family. Following that initial contact, the student’s school counselor will connect with the student and family to support accessing the StreamIN/CheckIN and assignments. The school counselor as well as the student’s teachers will check-in with the student on a regular basis to ensure continued connections through the StreamIN/CheckIN and assignments. 

Students at Kilmer will be taking the Virginia Growth Assessment starting next week. Please see below for additional information. 

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller, Principal

Student Picture Day

Student photos will be taken through PE class on Thursday, September 30 and Friday, October 1. Students will receive a photo brochure next week in PE. Photos can be ordered in advance by visiting Lifetouch’s website: https://my.lifetouch.com/mylifetouch/#/ website, entering the Kilmer’s Picture Day ID EVT3F2XCC and ordering your package.

Lockers

Students who would like to request a locker for this school year may complete the locker request form posted in the All Students Schoology page. The locker request form will close on Friday, October 1 at 3pm. This process was shared with students through KTV morning announcements today and a posted announcement through Schoology. Please keep in mind students will need to continue using their backpacks to carry their laptop during hallway transitions.

FCPS World Language Credit Exam

Students who can read and write in one of 30 languages may access an opportunity to earn high school credit through the World Language Credit Exam offered in November. Please visit the FCPS World Language Credit Exam Site for more information on the 30 languages tested. Students who are interested in taking the World Language Credit Exam need to fill out this form  with their FCPS Google Account to complete registration with their School Counselor. Information for students has been posted to the Student Services Schoology page.

Virginia Growth Assessment Next Week 

The Virginia Growth Assessment (VGA) is a new test required for students in grades 3-8. The state legislature introduced this requirement to measure student growth and progress within the school year in reading and mathematics.

 

For fall 2021, VGA will address content that was taught in the previous school year. The purpose of this fall’s VGA is to identify potential learning gaps resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no “passing” or “failing” outcome for the VGA. Results will provide a starting point to measure growth and will offer information about areas of strength and areas for growth in reading and mathematics.

Students enrolled in grades 3-8 will generally take an assessment in both reading and mathematics. However, elementary and middle school students enrolled in a high school credit-bearing math course, such as Algebra 1, will not take a VGA for mathematics. The following points may help you and your student better understand this assessment.

  • VGA must be taken in-person at school.
  • This online, computer-adaptive test is about half as long as the spring SOL test.
  • Questions use Standards of Learning (SOL)-like items to measure current knowledge and skills in the content area.
  • Student results will be used to help school staff plan for instruction and supports.

Across Fairfax County, elementary and middle schools will give students the VGA in September or October.  The students at Kilmer Middle School will take the tests on Monday, September 27 (Reading 7), Wednesday, September 29 (Reading 8), and Friday, October 1 (Math) during 4th period. 

Students should check their fcpsschools.net email account, after Thursday, 9/23, for their testing schedule.

If your student has been given an English or Bilingual dictionary to use for their classes, please remind them to bring it to their testing locations.

More information can be found on the FCPS VGA Website. Please contact Marileigh Blake, our School Test Coordinator at mlblake@fcps.edu for any questions.

A message from Principal, Amy Miller

Dear Kilmer Families, 

Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in the PTA meeting this week. We are so appreciative of the PTA’s support. The October PTA meeting will be in the evening on Monday, October 18, at 7:00 pm. By alternating meetings in the morning and evening, we hope that opens up opportunities for people to attend throughout the year. 

Kilmer’s Back-to-School Night will be held virtually on Tuesday, September 21 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. To join the Virtual Back-to-School Night, parents/guardians will login to their parent Schoology account and access the Back-to-School Night link at the top of each course.  When you join each class period, you will be put into a waiting room in Zoom. The teachers will let attendees into the session at the start of the class period. It will be difficult for teachers to let attendees in once they’ve begun their presentation, so please join the course 3-4 minutes prior to the start time to ensure you do not miss any part of the presentation. 

Enjoy the weekend!

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller

Library Orientation

A message from Principal, Amy Miller:

Dear Kilmer Families, 

I hope everyone had a nice long weekend! With the unofficial end of summer now past, we are definitely in full swing here at Kilmer!

This past week, I was able to join Eighth Graders in the library while they were getting oriented to the Kilmer Library and learning about all the amazing resources and opportunities that are available. Our two librarians, Mrs. Hazlin and Mrs. Tempesta, have created a library space in which students can engage in inquiry, meet new friends, explore their interests, talk, have fun, study, and overall be a part of a positive learning community. In Mrs. Hazlin and Mrs. Tempesta’s own words: “In the Kilmer Library, students develop knowledge and skills, experience a sense of belonging, find inspiration and support, and have the ability to freely pursue their personal interests and academic growth.”

While I was visiting the library, the students were sharing their library memories which were enjoyable and quite funny to hear. Then they engaged in a lock-box escape room activity in small groups. In order to figure out the combinations on the locks the students participated in a library scavenger hunt that oriented them to all the resources. Students had a chance to browse and check out books and if they had a few minutes they could play a game of chess. The positive energy and activity was incredible. 

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller, Principal

Student Picture Day

Student photos will be taken through PE class on Thursday, September 30 and Friday, October 1. More information on purchase will be provided next week. 

Upcoming Student Screenings

All families received an e-notify email regarding two upcoming assessments for students including the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Screener. All FCPS students in grades 3-12 will take the SEL Screener in the fall, winter, and spring with the first screening scheduled for Kilmer students on Wednesday October 20th or Friday, October 22nd. This brief screener focuses on skills and experiences related to self-awareness, self-management, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making and is not the mental health screening we have administered in the past with all 7th graders. The mental health wellness program and screening will be scheduled later this fall and more information about that program, along with an opportunity to opt-out, will be shared with families in the coming weeks. 

Student Rights and Responsibilities Parent Signature

We are extremely happy to have your child in our school with us this year!

A message from Principal, Amy Miller:

Dear Kilmer Families, 

We were looking forward to connecting with you at Back-to-School Night this week and are sorry we had to postpone due to the FCPS weather cancellation. We will be rescheduling this event. There is quite a bit of coordination that goes into identifying the Back-to-School Night date and we will publish it as soon as our new date is finalized. 

Some highlights from this week are, our science students had an opportunity to take their learning outside as they studied watersheds. In Health and PE, students were learning about and playing volleyball with a giant beach ball.  Our Introduction to Foreign Language students took their learning outside as they practiced their Latin using sidewalk chalk.

We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!

Sincerely, 

Amy Miller, Principal

Dear Kilmer Families, 

The school year is off to a great start! Throughout the week students engaged in community building activities to get to know each other and the Kilmer staff. Students also explored Schoology and learned about their course content. During lunch, our students enjoyed being able to choose between eating in the cafeteria, outside, or in the Group Instruction Room. 

I want to take a moment to thank the Kilmer PTA for their support of our student orientation programs such as Shifting Gears and for purchasing Kilmer t-shirts for all of our students.Thank you to our PTA for your continued support of Kilmer.
