Common Sense, the national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids and families thrive in a world of media and technology, has re-recognized Crossfield as a Common Sense School.

Crossfield has demonstrated its commitment to taking a whole-community approach to preparing its students to think critically and use technology responsibly to learn, create, and participate while preparing them for the perils that exist in the online realm, such as plagiarism, loss of privacy, and cyberbullying. With the right support, kids can take ownership of their digital lives, engage with real issues, and change their communities for the better. The recognition acknowledges our school's commitment to creating a culture of digital citizenship. 

"We applaud the faculty and staff of Crossfield for embracing digital citizenship as an important part of their students' education," said Kelly Mendoza, vice president of education programs at Common Sense Education. "Crossfield deserves high praise for giving its students the foundational skills they need to compete and succeed in the 21st-century workplace and participate ethically in society at large." 

Crossfield has been using Common Sense Education's innovative and research-based digital citizenship resources, which were created in collaboration with researchers from Project Zero, led by Howard Gardner at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and are grounded in the real issues students and teachers face. The resources teach students, educators, and parents tangible skills related to internet safety, protecting online reputations and personal privacy, media balance, managing online relationships, and media literacy. The free K–12 curriculum is used in classrooms across all 50 states, in more than 80,000 schools by more than 1,00,000 educators.

"We're honored to be recognized as a Common Sense School," said Mr. Granieri. "By preparing our students to use technology safely and responsibly, we are providing them an opportunity to build lifelong habits to help them succeed in a tech-driven world."

Family Engagement Survey 2021 – 2022

Dear Parents and Caregivers, On Sunday, March 13, in the afternoon, you received an email from Fairfax County Public Schools via K12 Insight regarding FCPS’ Family Engagement Survey. Your feedback is critical in helping to inform and improve our practices to best support our students.

FCPS is partnering with an independent firm K12 Insight to administer the survey. It will be available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean, Arabic, Chinese, Urdu, Farsi, and Amharic. Please visit our Family Engagement Survey webpage for more information

Attention 5th & 6th Graders!

It's time to bring back a favorite Crossfield community event.  Crossfield vs.Navy Basketball Game is back!  We are looking for 6th grade basketball players to join our boys' and girls' team, and 5th/6th graders to join our Spirit Squad to cheer on the teams! Register to participate in this fun event today.  Registration closes March 25th.  Mark your calendar for the game on Friday,  April 29th, 6pm at South Lakes High School. 

STUDENT INTENTION FORM

On March 15, families received a Student Intention Form for the upcoming school year.  This form is new to Crossfield and will help us better prepare for the 2022-2023 school year.  Parents or guardians should complete and return to Crossfield. Thank you!

NNAT TESTING (First Grade)

All first grade students will take the online version of the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test Third Edition (NNAT3) on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. The NNAT3 is a nonverbal measure of general intellectual ability. The test evaluates a student’s reasoning and problem-solving skills through the identification of patterns involving geometric shapes and pictorial designs. The test is designed to assess ability without requiring the student to read, write, or speak. Students are not expected to know the answers to all questions and will be given opportunities to practice sample items before taking the test. The NNAT3 is an abilities test, so children are not expected to study or prepare for the test the way they would for an achievement test.

If you have any questions about this test, please contact the Advanced Academics Resource Teacher (AART), Melissa Graham, or School Test Coordinator, Lea Fadden, at Crossfield.

 LATE ARRIVAL? EARLY RELEASE?  ABSENCE?

Please use our preferred method of reporting for a late arrival, early release or absence by going to the Crossfield Website and clicking on the blue ATTENDANCE box.  This process automatically notifies everyone in the front office of the change.  The front office is responsible for accurate attendance reporting and upon receipt of this online submission they will forward the information to the teacher.  Following this procedure reduces your wait time when you come to pick up your child and the number of automated calls from the county. Thank you!

Change in Transportation?

If you would like to report a change in your child's method of transportation for the day please use our online "Change in Transportation" form.  This type of reporting streamlines the process.  Our front office will respond to your submission to confirm receipt and cc your child's teacher.   Go to the Crossfield Website and click on the blue attendance box, then click on the "Looking to Submit a Change in Transportation" box.  

PTO Recruiting

The PTO Board is recruiting for several open positions for next year 2022-2023. We would love for you to join us!
