New Attendance Reporting Feature Launching in ParentVUE for 2024-25 School Year

FCPS is excited to announce an important update beginning with the start of the 2024-25 school year. Parents and caregivers will have the option to submit their student’s attendance directly through ParentVUE starting the first day of school, August 19, 2024.  This new feature aims to streamline the attendance reporting process and enhance communication between parents and schools. This change will make it more convenient for parents and schools to manage students' attendance while ensuring the highest level of security.

ParentVUE offers a more secure and reliable platform for managing students' attendance information.  ParentVUE will replace the current Attendance Forms, which will be discontinued at the end of the 2023-24 school year. 

 

ParentVUE access and assistance will be provided during Back-to-School events.

ASP Parent Survey

PLEASE FAMILIES, Take 5 mins to complete this survey. Your input is critical to our funding and program planning for the Middle School After-School Program. Whether your child stayed for activities, sports, rehearsals, or academic help, they were part of our after-school program. The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The survey is an important component of the after-school program evaluation and is critical for future funding. The more responses we receive, the more valuable and reliable the data. The responses not only allow us to assess the impact of the after-school program but they help drive program improvement and program quality.

Thank you for completing the survey and for your support of the after-school program.  This survey is FCPS approved. Approval Number is 24234. And YES, I read all of the responses, so please share your thoughts, concerns, wishlists, etc. 

All survey responses are due by June 7, 2024.

8th Grade Parents:  Signature required for Academic & Career Plan

Your child is continuing to develop an Academic and Career Plan (ACP) that supports their current work as well as helps them plan for the future.  Your child will work with teachers and school counselors to discover their personal strengths and interests.  They will also create goals to help them achieve success, plan for courses that meet high school graduation requirements, and prepare for life after high school.  The development of the ACP starts in middle school and is updated regularly through high school as each student’s academic, personal, and career goals evolve. 

Liberty counselors met with 8th grade students during the month of May through Civics classes to assist them in reviewing the requirements for graduation and mapping out their required courses and electives through 12th grade. 

You or your child can log into Naviance Student at www.fcps.edu/Naviance. Naviance supports more than 70 languages which parents can access from the icon of a globe in the top right corner of the website.  Once in your child’s account, click on their initials in the top right corner.  Select “Portfolio”.  Once you click on the Portfolio, you can review the DRAFT course plan for high school.

**The Virginia Department of Education requires that the student’s parent or guardian review this plan. Once you have reviewed your child’s plan, complete the verification form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe9Q8TMSduQjs6TsrwnegX4TOaXqxYFanMCeiQg9eqy5MwlJQ/viewform. The completion of this form will serve as your signature.  This must be completed by Friday, May 31, 2024.

For more information, visit www.fcps.edu and search “Academic and Career Plan”. We encourage you to continue to use Naviance Student with your child to explore college and career options. If you have further questions, please contact your child’s school counselor.

Athletic physicals are required for middle and high school student-athletes.  Beginning May 1, 2024, FCPS high schools will offer athletic pre-participation physical exams for students interested in middle school sports during the 2024-25 school year.   These events serve as the primary fundraiser for our high school athletic training programs and each exam costs $50.  Rising middle school students are eligible to receive a physical at no cost although donations to the HS athletic training program are welcomed.

 

Pre-registration is highly encouraged; walk-in appointments may not be available.  You can register here: Student registration.  Once your registration is received, the school’s athletic trainer will contact you to confirm your appointment time.  Athletic physical exams must be completed on this form: FCPS Middle School Sports Athletic Participation/Parental Consent/Physical Examination Form (PPE).

Attendance FYI:

As students transition to middle school, one aspect that can sometimes be confusing is that each period has its own attendance. If a student arrives to school after 1st Period, their attendance will show an absence from all class periods they missed entirely and a tardy to the period they arrived during. They will not receive an all-day absence unless they were absent from all class periods.

 

To avoid receiving an automated attendance call, please submit the Attendance Form, or call our 24/7 attendance line at 703-988-8181 to report your student’s absence, late arrival, or early dismissal before 8:00 a.m. (i.e. before the end of 1st Period).

8th Grade Celebration Class Fee

8th Grade Class Fee  - $5 due 6/1/24 Paid through MySchool Bucks

At the end of each school year Liberty Middle School likes to celebrate the graduation of our 8th graders from middle school to high school with a fun day of activities and food.  This year’s event will occur on Tuesday, June 11th.  To help support the purchase of food and supplies for the BBQ lunch, we are asking all 8th graders to pay a $5 class fee.  Payment of this fee can be made through MySchool Bucks in the Liberty School Store.   Please make this payment by June 1st.   If you need assistance covering this expense, please reach out to your child’s counselor by email.  All remaining funds after expenses will stay with the SCA to help support student activities and expenses.

8th Grade Parents:  Signature required for Academic & Career Plan

Your child is continuing to develop an Academic and Career Plan (ACP) that supports their current work as well as helps them plan for the future.  Your child will work with teachers and school counselors to discover their personal strengths and interests.  They will also create goals to help them achieve success, plan for courses that meet high school graduation requirements, and prepare for life after high school.  The development of the ACP starts in middle school and is updated regularly through high school as each student’s academic, personal, and career goals evolve. 

Liberty counselors met with 8th grade students during the month of May through Civics classes to assist them in reviewing the requirements for graduation and mapping out their required courses and electives through 12th grade. 

You or your child can log into Naviance Student at www.fcps.edu/Naviance. Naviance supports more than 70 languages which parents can access from the icon of a globe in the top right corner of the website.  Once in your child’s account, click on their initials in the top right corner.  Select “Portfolio”.  Once you click on the Portfolio, you can review the DRAFT course plan for high school.

**The Virginia Department of Education requires that the student’s parent or guardian review this plan. Once you have reviewed your child’s plan, complete the verification form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe9Q8TMSduQjs6TsrwnegX4TOaXqxYFanMCeiQg9eqy5MwlJQ/viewform. The completion of this form will serve as your signature.  This must be completed by Friday, May 31, 2024.

For more information, visit www.fcps.edu and search “Academic and Career Plan”. We encourage you to continue to use Naviance Student with your child to explore college and career options. If you have further questions, please contact your child’s school counselor.

Unfortunately, we have had no other volunteers express interest in serving in any other role than the President's role. To help ensure that Liberty does not lose its' PTA, both Rachel Macias and I (Heather Thomas) have agreed to serve in the role of treasurer and secretary until we can locate volunteers that can serve in these roles. *No previous experience is needed. Training and support are provided. The only requirement is that you must have a current Liberty PTA membership.

We are preparing for the 2024-2025 school year, and we would like to ask for your assistance. To help plan for our staffing needs, we ask that each family complete the Student Intention for Next School Year (2024-2025).

CyberPatriot Camp

Chantilly Academy is supporting STEM and cybersecurity education by hosting an AFA CyberPatriot Camp this summer! This camp welcomes students of all skill levels, so we encourage anyone interested in cybersecurity to register. This is an opportunity to learn the importance of cybersecurity and gain the skills to protect yourself and others from cyber threats on a variety of operating systems. 

Camp Details

Date: June 24-28, 2024

Time: 9am-3pm

Where: Chantilly Academy (4201 Stringfellow Rd, Chantilly, VA)

Cost: $200 for the week (includes materials, camp t-shirt, and lunch each day)

Who: Rising 5th-8th Graders

Questions: Email Sam Jonsson ([email protected])

Free and Reduced-Price Meals:  Learn more about the criteria and process to apply for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

If you have children eligible for the federal Free and Reduced-Price Meals program, they may also be eligible to participate in other Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) fee-based programs without paying a fee or by paying a reduced fee (e.g classes with a student fee).

To learn more and apply online click here : Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FRM) | Fairfax County Public Schools (fcps.edu)

The free and reduced-price meals application also includes a section where you provide consent to share information allowing FCPS staff (School Principal, school counselors and other FCPS program staff) to share information about your children's meal eligibility status.

Information received by FCPS staff will only be used for the purposes described in the application.

Attendance FYI:

As students transition to middle school, one aspect that can sometimes be confusing is that each period has its own attendance. If a student arrives to school after 1st Period, their attendance will show an absence from all class periods they missed entirely and a tardy to the period they arrived during. They will not receive an all-day absence unless they were absent from all class periods.

 

To avoid receiving an automated attendance call, please submit the Attendance Form, or call our 24/7 attendance line at 703-988-8181 to report your student’s absence, late arrival, or early dismissal before 8:00 a.m. (i.e. before the end of 1st Period).

CyberPatriot Camp

Chantilly Academy is supporting STEM and cybersecurity education by hosting an AFA CyberPatriot Camp this summer! This camp welcomes students of all skill levels, so we encourage anyone interested in cybersecurity to register. This is an opportunity to learn the importance of cybersecurity and gain the skills to protect yourself and others from cyber threats on a variety of operating systems. 

Camp Details

Date: June 24-28, 2024

Time: 9am-3pm

Where: Chantilly Academy (4201 Stringfellow Rd, Chantilly, VA)

Cost: $200 for the week (includes materials, camp t-shirt, and lunch each day)

Who: Rising 5th-8th Graders

Questions: Email Sam Jonsson ([email protected])

Free and Reduced-Price Meals:  Learn more about the criteria and process to apply for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.

If you have children eligible for the federal Free and Reduced-Price Meals program, they may also be eligible to participate in other Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) fee-based programs without paying a fee or by paying a reduced fee (e.g classes with a student fee).

To learn more and apply online click here : Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FRM) | Fairfax County Public Schools (fcps.edu)

The free and reduced-price meals application also includes a section where you provide consent to share information allowing FCPS staff (School Principal, school counselors and other FCPS program staff) to share information about your children's meal eligibility status.

Information received by FCPS staff will only be used for the purposes described in the application.

Attendance FYI:

As students transition to middle school, one aspect that can sometimes be confusing is that each period has its own attendance. If a student arrives to school after 1st Period, their attendance will show an absence from all class periods they missed entirely and a tardy to the period they arrived during. They will not receive an all-day absence unless they were absent from all class periods.

 

To avoid receiving an automated attendance call, please submit the Attendance Form, or call our 24/7 attendance line at 703-988-8181 to report your student’s absence, late arrival, or early dismissal before 8:00 a.m. (i.e. before the end of 1st Period).

The PTA cannot function without Board members – we need your help to continue to support the Liberty Lion community!

At a minimum, per the National PTA bylaws, our PTA  board must have at least a President, Secretary, and Treasurer. If not then there will not be a PTA for Liberty next year. We need your help!

SOL TESTING:

Please mark your calendars with these important SOL testing days:

 

Permission to Retest Google Form

The Virginia Board of Education allows middle school students who fail Standards of Learning (SOL) tests by a narrow margin to retake the test before the end of the school year.  Retesting is available when a student fails their first attempt with a score of 375-399 (where 400 is passing).

Parent permission is required for any retests in grades 7-8.  A decision not to allow retesting will not impact your child’s course grade or academic record.

If you believe your child would benefit from a second opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills on the SOL test, please complete the Parent Permission Retest Form by clicking the link below.
