Help Support Cedar Lane School

https://educatefairfax.app.neoncrm.com/forms/cedar-lane-campaign 

Cedar Lane is a Public Day High School serving students receiving special education services in grades 9 through 12. The mission of Cedar Lane is grounded in Excellence, Equity and Opportunity  and we believe that every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances. We are dedicated to creating a learning environment that is inclusive, supportive, and challenging for all students.

Cedar Lane School is not a “traditional high school”, therefore is not privileged to the funding, opportunities or supports that other high schools have. Cedar Lane believes that every child should have equal experiences and opportunities and it is OUR MISSION  to provide our students with a nurturing and empowering high school experience, where they can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.

Your contribution will go a long way in making a tangible difference in the lives of our students and staff. Here are just a few examples of how your donation can create a lasting impact:

  1. After School Activities and Enrichment Programs: Please help support our ESPORTS program at Cedar and the Cedar Lane Boxing Club. We believe in the power of extracurricular activities to broaden our students' horizons and develop their talents. However, due to financial constraints, we are unable to offer a wide range of enriching programs. We would like to offer after school tutoring, coding club, and a host of other experiences.  By contributing to our campaign, you can help us provide opportunities for our students to explore their interests and discover new passions.
  2. Prom, Graduation and Senior Trip: Cedar Lane is a small school, but we want our seniors to have a memorable graduation and prom here at Cedar Lane. Like other high schools, we would also like to offer our seniors a senior trip. Your donation could help us make these experiences possible and amazing for our students. 
  1. Cedar Corner -  This year, Cedar Lane started a food pantry and clothing closet for our students with the support of the Young Men’s Service League and Food for Others.  Donations to our campaign will help to keep our pantry stocked with clothes and food and help purchase items that may not be provided. 
  1. Educational Field Trip Experiences and  Resources: With limited funding, we struggle to provide our students with experiences outside of Cedar Lane and the up-to-date technology, and classroom supplies they need. Your donation will enable us to enhance their learning experiences and provide them with life changing opportunities to explore and engage in exhibitions of learning.
  1. Building Wide Positive Behavior Support System-Cedar Lane has a PBIS system, in which students are able to earn rewards for positive behavior and choices. Your donation can help support the PBIS program at Cedar Lane, as the students thrive with this intervention.
  1. Beautification: Throughout the year we want to enhance the look/features of our building.  Funds are needed to beautify the grounds and to ensure our students are proud to walk into Cedar Lane on a daily basis.  Your donation could help keep the outside learning space clean and garden a usable space, the grounds nice and clean, and offer the opportunities to purchase up to date benches and furniture for our building.

No donation is too small, and every contribution counts. Your generosity will not only change the lives of our deserving students but also contribute to the betterment of the entire Fairfax community. On behalf of Cedar Lane,  I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your consideration and support. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of our children and empower them to achieve their dreams. Thank you for being a beacon of hope and inspiration in our community.

  1. Educational Field Trip Experiences and  Resources: With limited funding, we struggle to provide our students with experiences outside of Cedar Lane and the up-to-date technology, and classroom supplies they need. Your donation will enable us to enhance their learning experiences and provide them with life changing opportunities to explore and engage in exhibitions of learning.
  1. Building Wide Positive Behavior Support System-Cedar Lane has a PBIS system, in which students are able to earn rewards for positive behavior and choices. Your donation can help support the PBIS program at Cedar Lane, as the students thrive with this intervention.
  1. Beautification: Throughout the year we want to enhance the look/features of our building.  Funds are needed to beautify the grounds and to ensure our students are proud to walk into Cedar Lane on a daily basis.  Your donation could help keep the outside learning space clean and garden a usable space, the grounds nice and clean, and offer the opportunities to purchase up to date benches and furniture for our building.

Mrs. Dougherty to retire

GovDelivery1 month 2 weeks ago

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

Dear Cedar Lane School Community,

 

I am writing to announce that after 24 years of working in Fairfax County Public Schools, Mrs. Dougherty will retire at the end of this school year.  Mrs. Dougherty has been an integral part of our school community for 15 years. Her dedication and passion for supporting our students and teachers have made a forever lasting impact on our school.  Throughout her time at Cedar, she has worked tirelessly to ensure that all students, regardless of their abilities, have access to an appropriate education and the support they need to succeed. She has been a strong advocate for our students and worked closely with teachers, parents, and outside agencies to build meaningful relationships. Mrs. Dougherty is a source of inspiration for many of our staff members, always willing to lend a listening ear or offer guidance and support. Her dedication to our students and her commitment to creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment have set a high standard.  

 

As Mrs. Dougherty prepares to embark on the new chapter in her life, I want to personally take this opportunity to thank her for her leadership and guidance, in my first year as Principal of Cedar Lane School. Her knowledge, support and expertise have been unimaginable, and selfishly I wish I had more time with her at Cedar Lane. I find peace in knowing we can reach out to her at any time, and she will continue to always be a part of the Cedar Lane Family.  Mrs. Dougherty’s service, dedication and impact on Cedar Lane School will be felt for years to come.  Please join me in wishing Mrs. Dougherty all the best in her well-deserved retirement. We will miss her dearly.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Farrish, Principal

Reflection and Silent Space Accommodations

We are excited to introduce the Expectations for Meditation and Silent Reflection Accommodation Regulation. This new regulation was developed to ensure students and staff, regardless of religious backgrounds, have reasonable accommodations and access to meditation and silent reflection spaces within their school or building. This effort aligns with FCPS’ commitment to providing a welcoming, inclusive, and culturally responsive instructional and work environment for students and staff. Students are only permitted to use meditation and silent reflection rooms during instructional time when there is a request that cannot be accommodated in any other way that does not impact instruction. Parents/caregivers must provide written permission for a student to miss instructional time on a regular basis. All requests for accommodations should be directed to the principal or principal designee. The new regulation outlines accommodations for reflection and meditation space with specific and consistent expectations for students, families, and staff in the division.  

To support you in this work, the FCPS Hub has information about the regulation, the official FCPS accommodation permission form, and a digital Google Form for schools to copy and use. The HUB also has a tool for school leaders to share effective practices that are working in their schools. On March 7, content was shared in the Principals Toolkit to communicate this information to your school community.

If you have any questions or need additional support with this meditation and select reflection space accommodations, the Chief Experience and Engagement and Chief Equity Offices are here to help schools. 

 

Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) School Health Services Internal Survey

Senior Assassin Game

GovDelivery2 months 1 week ago

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

Dear Cedar Families,

We are aware that some students are participating in an activity called “Senior Assassin.”  Part of this activity involves students getting someone “out” by squirting them with a water gun. While these toy guns may seem harmless, they pose a significant risk to the well-being and sense of security in our community.

Here are some reasons why toy guns can be dangerous:

  1. Difficulty in Distinguishing: In stressful or high-pressure situations, it can be very difficult to quickly differentiate a toy gun from a real firearm. This confusion can lead to misidentification and potentially tragic consequences.
  2. Disruption and Fear: The presence of toy guns can generate fear and anxiety among students and staff. This disrupts the learning environment and undermines our efforts to create a safe and welcoming space for everyone.
  3. Normalization of Gun Violence: Bringing toy guns to school, even in a playful manner, can unintentionally make the use of weapons seem normal and lead to people becoming numb to gun violence.

FCPS has a strict policy against bringing any weapons or replicas of weapons onto school grounds. This policy exists to protect our students, our staff, and our entire community. Students found in possession of toy guns will face disciplinary action as noted in FCPS’ Student Rights & Responsibilities document.

Please talk to your children about the severity of this issue and the importance of leaving toy guns at home. Emphasize that school is a place for learning, and weapons, whether real or not, have no place in this environment.

Thank you for your commitment to making our school a safe and welcoming place for everyone.

Sincerely,

Dr. Farrish

Help Support Cedar Lane School

https://educatefairfax.app.neoncrm.com/forms/cedar-lane-campaign 

Cedar Lane is a Public Day High School serving students receiving special education services in grades 9 through 12. The mission of Cedar Lane is grounded in Excellence, Equity and Opportunity  and we believe that every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances. We are dedicated to creating a learning environment that is inclusive, supportive, and challenging for all students.

Cedar Lane School is not a “traditional high school”, therefore is not privileged to the funding, opportunities or supports that other high schools have. Cedar Lane believes that every child should have equal experiences and opportunities and it is OUR MISSION  to provide our students with a nurturing and empowering high school experience, where they can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.

Your contribution will go a long way in making a tangible difference in the lives of our students and staff. Here are just a few examples of how your donation can create a lasting impact:

  • After School Activities and Enrichment Programs: Please help support our ESPORTS program at Cedar and the Cedar Lane Boxing Club. We believe in the power of extracurricular activities to broaden our students' horizons and develop their talents. However, due to financial constraints, we are unable to offer a wide range of enriching programs. We would like to offer after school tutoring, coding club, and a host of other experiences.  By contributing to our campaign, you can help us provide opportunities for our students to explore their interests and discover new passions.
  • Prom, Graduation and Senior Trip: Cedar Lane is a small school, but we want our seniors to have a memorable graduation and prom here at Cedar Lane. Like other high schools, we would also like to offer our seniors a senior trip. Your donation could help us make these experiences possible and amazing for our students. 
  • Cedar Corner -  This year, Cedar Lane started a food pantry and clothing closet for our students with the support of the Young Men’s Service League and Food for Others.  Donations to our campaign will help to keep our pantry stocked with clothes and food and help purchase items that may not be provided. 
  • Educational Field Trip Experiences and  Resources: With limited funding, we struggle to provide our students with experiences outside of Cedar Lane and the up-to-date technology, and classroom supplies they need. Your donation will enable us to enhance their learning experiences and provide them with life changing opportunities to explore and engage in exhibitions of learning.
  • Building Wide Positive Behavior Support System-Cedar Lane has a PBIS system, in which students are able to earn rewards for positive behavior and choices. Your donation can help support the PBIS program at Cedar Lane, as the students thrive with this intervention.
  • Beautification: Throughout the year we want to enhance the look/features of our building.  Funds are needed to beautify the grounds and to ensure our students are proud to walk into Cedar Lane on a daily basis.  Your donation could help keep the outside learning space clean and garden a usable space, the grounds nice and clean, and offer the opportunities to purchase up to date benches and furniture for our building.

No donation is too small, and every contribution counts. Your generosity will not only change the lives of our deserving students but also contribute to the betterment of the entire Fairfax community. On behalf of Cedar Lane,  I extend my heartfelt gratitude for your consideration and support. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of our children and empower them to achieve their dreams. Thank you for being a beacon of hope and inspiration in our community.

Parents/guardians will be asked for feedback on the level of satisfaction with School Health services provided to the school community. The survey will be distributed electronically via FCPS This Week. The survey window is April 15 - April 26, 2024.Survey link: www.redcap.link/FCHDSchoolHealthSurvey.

Survey results will provide a basis for quality improvement of School Health services. The data-driven process is in alignment with the FCPS Strategic planning process, and the survey results will contribute positively to the FCPS Strategic Plan that reflects a shared consensus among stakeholders.
