Jill's House/Kilmer Center School Virtual Parent Support Group Monday, June 10th 7pm - 8pm

Please Join us

for the last Parent Support Group

of the 2023-24 School Year!

 

 

 

Join us as we talk about the impact that events have on all our lives.

Like every other family, our families experience events which are not related to our child or children with special needs.

We have exciting, heartwarming events. We also have sad, horrible events.

The happy ones:  For example, a wedding, a birth, a graduation, a promotion, a move to a new house or a new place, an inheritance, etc.

The difficult ones: For example, the loss of a loved one, a loss of income, the loss of a pet, a disaster like a flood, a fire, a car accident, robbery, assault, etc.

 

What events have impacted you? 

Given the extra demands you experience every day, how do you deal with these other events?

We look forward to hearing what you have to share about how these events have been for you!

School Board Votes to Adopt Fiscal Year 2025 Approved Budget

The Fairfax County School Board voted to adopt Fairfax County Public Schools’ (FCPS) Fiscal Year (FY) 2025 Approved Budget at their last board meeting. The FY 2025 Approved Budget totals $3.7 billion — a net increase of $233.2 million or 6.6% over the previous year. 

The FY 2025 Approved Budget focuses on providing educational excellence for all students and ensuring that employees’ hard work and dedication are acknowledged through competitive compensation. Both of these efforts fully align with the FCPS 2023-30 Strategic Plan.

Nearly 86% of the Approved Budget is targeted at instruction. Key budget highlights include funding for a 4% compensation increase for all employees; maintaining existing class size formulas and providing necessary support to all students; and expanding athletics offerings, additional athletic trainers, and enhanced stipends for fine and performing arts.

  Kilmer Center Learning Space

Dear Kilmer Center School Families,

 

We have a vision to create a vibrant outdoor learning space for all students to access at Kilmer Center School.  This learning space will be constructed directly beside our school building with a designated walkway directly leading to the learning space.  The learning space will be a large area consisting of beautiful pavers and brick.

A special element of this space is it will enable us to memorialize past students.  Families can have their child's name engraved on a commemorative brick, permanently displayed within the learning space. Additionally, we're incorporating a beautiful central grassy area perfect for planting seasonal flowers, fostering a connection with nature and beautifying the space. We have a vision to add seating options to provide a comfortable and peaceful place to embrace the tranquil setting.

This exciting project will benefit not only our students but also the entire Kilmer Center community. Your tax-deductible donation will play a crucial role in bringing this vision to life.

Thank you for your support in creating a lasting impact on our school and fostering a love for learning in our students! 

Sincerely,

Hoang H Nguyen

  Lockdown Drill Information

Keeping students and staff safe is a priority for all of us. We have a crisis management and emergency preparedness plan for our school that is reviewed and updated regularly. Our plan includes procedures on how to respond to incidents such as fires and tornadoes. Students and staff regularly practice these drills every school year. We also practice lockdown drills.

A new Virginia Law (22.1-137.2) requires schools to notify parents at least 24 hours before a school practices a lockdown drill. However, we are not required to share the exact date and time of the drill. We are required to practice lockdown drills two times a year. FCPS lockdown drills do not include any type of active shooter scenario training, they are instruction and classroom based.

We will conduct a lockdown drill at our school soon. Our pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students are exempt from mandatory participation in lockdown drills during the first 60 days of the school year. They will participate in our second and final drill later this school year.

Additional information on our lockdown drill program to include parent tips and FAQs can be found on the Emergency Planning and Crisis Response web page. After reviewing this content, you should discuss the value of these safety drills with your child.

Keeping our school safe and secure for all students and staff involves the participation of the entire school community, and we thank you for your help to keep our school safe.

Jill's House/Kilmer Center School Parent Support Group Monday, May 20th 7pm - 8pm

 

Parenting children with special needs comes with a whole host of emotions that can be difficult to maneuver. One of the most challenging for many is the isolation they experience.  Join us on Monday to discuss this subject. We'll explore questions such as:

  1. When you think of isolation, what does it mean to you?
  2. When are some times you have felt isolated?
  3. What do you find most difficult about being isolated?
  4. How do you deal with isolation?
  5. What is the opposite of isolation to you?

Strategies to Promote Healthy Sleep in Kids with Disabilities

Wednesday, May 1, 2024
11:00 a.m.

Live, on-line presentation on ZOOM

Sleep is a common area that children struggle with. Alison Moser, M.Ed., BCBA has helped sleep train many children and teens who have difficulty: falling asleep at an appropriate time, staying asleep throughout the night, staying in their bed the entire night, and waking up early. The strategies presented in this webinar are “tried and true” in many research journals over decades of sleep studies. We will review general strategies to help promote healthy sleep while reviewing more detailed strategies depending on what type of sleep difficulties your child is having.

Transition Lunch & Learn

April 17, 2024 - 12:00 noon
Open Discussion

Live, on-line presentation on ZOOM

Planning for the transition from school to adult services can be an overwhelming task. Once your child exits the school system, adult services are based on eligibility criteria and funding availability. These twice-monthly, small group sessions are an opportunity to discuss the challenges and discover resources the help in creating a plan for the future.

It’s never too early to plan; you don’t have to wait until your student is close to graduation. Also, these Lunch & Learns would be a great way for families who started the process but got overwhelmed or stuck to find the motivation to restart the process and press forward.

The Transition Lunch & Learns are held virtually on Zoom. All of The Arc of Northern Virginia's webinar events are FREE to attend, but pre-registration is required.

🩹 Measles Is Preventable

Measles is making headlines as the number of cases nationwide has topped 40, with three confirmed cases in people living in or traveling through the National Capital Region. 

The good news is that measles is preventable through vaccination! Vaccines help teach the immune system how to defend against germs, helping to build up natural defenses. Give your child the best protection against measles with two doses of the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine. Visit the Fairfax County Health Department website to find out more about measles.

Extended Hours at Immunization Clinics

To help parents/caregivers obtain vaccinations for their children, the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) will offer immunization clinics with extended hours:

 

Parents/caregivers should make an appointment but a limited number of walk-ins will be accepted. Please call 703-246-7100 to schedule an appointment.

Learn more about vaccinating your child and find community resources to support their health and well-being. 

Note: All students enrolling in public and private schools in Virginia are required to be adequately immunized per the Code of Virginia.

We've discussed TRUST before. Let's expand on the importance of trust. Specifically, let's explore what it looks like to:

  • Trust our children---around what things, with what people, in what situations?
  • Trust ourselves—where do we most trust ourselves? Where do we doubt ourselves the most?
  • Trust others--whom do we let into our trusting circle? How do we decide that?
  • Where do we not trust? Why?
