Dear Members of the CHS Community:

Thank you for a wonderful school year.  Please note that this is the last Friday message for the 2018-2019 school year.  If anything comes up that needs your attention over the summer, I will let you know.

Google Suite for Education Summer Access

G Suite for Education is available to students over the summer. All files created by, or shared with, students will continue to be available to them. Explore what your student is working on in G Suite for Education by having your student log in to his or her FCPS G Suite for Education account at home. Your student will use his or her network login credentials to access G Suite for Education. Students have the ability to reset their password using the Account Recovery service, even over the summer. However, recovery options must be set up in advance. Your student can set up those options by logging into the FCPS Account Manager. Summer is also the perfect time to revisit the rules in your household for technology and media use, and set clear expectations for your child. The FCPS Digital Citizenship website has Device Contracts and Family Media Agreements that can help you guide family conversations. There is also a free online Digital Citizenship course available for parents and their children to work through together. More information on G Suite for Education can be found on the FCPS Website

Dear Members of the CHS Community:

What It Means To Be A Champion

As the 2018-2019 School Year draws to a close, I would like to thank everyone for a great graduation ceremony and All Night Graduation Party on Tuesday night (please see the note below thanking those that donated to the event). For those of you that did not attend the ceremony, I thought I should share my comments to the class of 2019.

Have a good weekend,

Scott

Good afternoon seniors, parents, staff members, friends and distinguished guests! It’s an honor to speak to you on this important day. Whether it’s new ideas or perspectives, I thank you, the class of 2019, for inspiring me, challenging me, and encouraging me to reflect about how I can continue to improve as a teacher, principal, and father.

The most rewarding part of my job is when I experience students being successful, especially after they have overcome significant challenges and setbacks along the way. I will never forget the anxiety and ultimate joy I felt as Stephanie Der served the last few winning points to give our volleyball team their first state championship and undefeated season in school history. I will always remember the sense of pride and comradery that I felt as watched the Forensics team celebrate their 4th state championship in a row. I cannot help but notice the pride that emanates from our band students when they emphasize their status as an Honor Band for the last three years.  Even as recent as yesterday and earlier today, I felt the adrenalin rush as our Boys Tennis Team seeks a second straight championship and our Girls Soccer Team competed in the state playoffs. Like all high schools in Fairfax County, our state championships are posted on the front of our building, and I recently passed by them yet again and thought about why I’m so proud of them and what the word “champion” really means.

“Champion” is actually a pretty interesting word if you think about it. We are all familiar with the definition, “A winner of first prize or first place in a competition.” Many of you have won district, regional or state championships in athletics, the visual or performing arts, yearbook, and other academic, career, and skill competitions. But champion also means, “A militant advocate or defender.” As proud as I am to be associated with those students that have won competitions of all kinds, I’m just as proud of those students that have championed many noble causes. Many of you have volunteered to help others through our honor societies and service clubs. Other students have championed charities that help the less fortunate or those that are suffering. Some of you have written stories in the Purple Tide or aired stories on the Knightly News to champion a cause or issue that you believe in. Some of you have championed political candidates and causes that you believe will best serve our local, state, national, and international communities.

In short, there are 661 champions of all kinds sitting in front of me, and the staff as well as your parents are proud of the champions that you have become.  I feel fortunate that I was able to share the last two years with you and have grown to respect, admire, and appreciate you as exceptional people. I care about you very much and congratulate each and every senior before me for your many achievements both in and out of the classroom.  I wish you all the best and encourage you to continue seeking championships of all kinds and to continue championing those causes that make the world a better place. Thank you.

  • Simon Condemi is an exemplary leader in class. He is incredibly patient in working with his peers and goes out of his way to make others feel welcome and safe. On numerous occasions, he has volunteered to partner with students that may not have a partner or close friends in class. When he finishes work early, Simon can be found checking in with other students to see how they are, patting them on the back, and encouraging/celebrating their accomplishments. He is everyone’s cheerleader. Any teacher would be lucky to have him. Every student is his friend. Ms. Allison Prell and Mr. Bradley Perrow
  • Yeimy Cameros Asencio just registered at CHS on May 3rd. In her short time here, she caught the immediate attention of her teachers because of her hard work, positive attitude, enthusiasm for learning, and determination.

Dear Members of the CHS Community:

It is with a heavy heart that I let all of you know that a member of our Chantilly Family passed away last night due to flu and pneumonia. Rohit Kulkarni was a freshman this year and formerly a student at Rocky Run Middle School. He participated in robotics, loved Chantilly High School, and was an outstanding student.  Rohit was very strong and brave and loved by all. Funeral arrangements are still in process and will be communicated to the CHS community as soon as they are available. His passing will be felt throughout our school and community, and we send blessings to his family, friends and teachers at this most difficult time.

Re: SOL testing and attendance

We Need Your Help

 

Today was the first day for SOL Testing and the ninth day for AP Testing and we had close to 600 students check in late or check out early. While the duration of class periods are altered at this time of year, we fully expect students to attend. Furthermore, students are not permitted to check out of school during an SOL testing block in which they are participating. If they have a scheduled appointment, they will need to be moved to a make-up section. Moving forward, if your student has a need to check in late or check out early, please have him/her bring a note to the Sub School first thing in the morning. This will help the Sub School process them in a timely manner. If you do not send a note, please understand that it will take us more time to process requests that come via a parent phone call. Thank you for your help and support.

Dear CHS Family,

As the Chairpersons for the 32nd annual All Night Grad Party (ANGP) at Chantilly High School, all we can say is “Wow!” We are truly humbled and appreciative of the response we received for food and volunteer sign ups last week. The Class of 2019 is lucky to be part of such a caring and generous community.

That said, we are still in need of 30 volunteers – particularly for checking in graduates and chaperoning the party to ensure that all doors are monitored around the school throughout the evening and to alert our SROs if any incidents occur. We know that staying up all night seems difficult, but as many veterans of the party will tell you, once you’re there it’s not that hard, and you’ll be glad you did it. In many cases, as the night winds down, we are able to send some volunteers home early. But we can’t do that unless we have a full team of volunteers. To volunteer, please use the following link Volunteer Signup.

The All Night Grad Party is sponsored by the Chantilly High School PTSA, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. If your company has a charitable volunteer program like Fannie Mae, Fairfax County Government, Capital One, to name a few, you may be eligible to volunteer for this event and take some time off the next day without penalty. Check your company website for more details or talk to your supervisor.

There are also opportunities to donate water and a few other items. Please use this link: Food and Drink Signup.

Thank you again for being part of the celebration for our 2019 Graduates.

Dear Members of the CHS Community:

Thoughts About the Meaning of Success at Chantilly HS

Since being named principal of Chantilly HS last year, I’ve had many neighbors, friends, and colleagues offer their congratulations and best wishes. Many people have told me that I should be especially proud because Chantilly is a very successful school. By many well-known measures, Chantilly is a very successful school. For example, Chantilly HS was recently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the 11th best high school in Virginia: https://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools/virginia/rankings . In another example, Chantilly HS was recently named by Washington Post reporter Jay Mathews as one of the better high schools in the Washington region. These high rankings and accolades are clearly a source of pride in our community. At award ceremonies, I am moved by the many achievements and scholarships earned by our students. Teachers, staff, and parents are very proud of what our students have accomplished. While I’ve seen many academic successes at Chantilly, my day to day work with students reminds me that success can take many other forms as well. I have watched students on our athletic teams and performing arts groups experience the success that comes only when someone commits to something bigger than themselves. I’ve worked with students this year who have lost loved ones, and they remind me that success is more about what’s in your head and heart than anything else. I’ve worked with students new to our country who are doing everything they can to learn a new language and culture; they remind me that success comes to those who have the courage to change. I’ve met an incredible young lady at CHS who may not be able to walk well but who has already traveled farther than many in the journey of life; she reminds me that success is a reflection of character and determination. Perhaps most important, Chantilly HS students remind me that success is also about staying strong when times get tough. Like you, I celebrate our high rankings and achievements, but, in my mind, they pale in comparison to the more personal examples of success that cannot be measured by any metric or formula.

Have a good weekend,

Scott

Protestors at Chantilly HS on Thursday During Dismissal:

You may have noticed a few anti-abortion demonstrators holding up posters during dismissal on Thursday, May 9th. They were on public property at the edge of the Chantilly HS campus and cooperated with our security team. The group in question has conducted similar protests at other high schools and was recently featured on local news: http://www.fox5dc.com/news/local-news/anti-abortion-activists-protest-outside-virginia-schools-record-students

SOL Testing

GovDelivery 2 months 1 week ago
SOL Testing

The SOL testing policy states that students cannot use unauthorized electronic devices of any kind during the testing session.  Prior to SOL testing, every student will check the box on the Electronics Policy stating they understand that cell phones are prohibited in the exam rooms. This policy also includes MP3 players, electronic translators, cameras, ebook readers, portable listening or recording devices, smart watches, handheld gaming systems, fitness trackers and any other type of electronic or communication devices. Students should consider leaving these devices at home on testing days.

Students caught accessing a cell phone and/or other electronic device during SOL testing (including during a bathroom break or after their test has been submitted) will have the SOL score voided.  They may receive a discipline consequence from their administrator, may be required to retake the SOL test, or may receive a zero on the SOL test. This testing irregularity may result in consequences determined above the school level.

Students will be using their FCPSOn Devices for SOL testing.  Students will need to bring a fully charged laptop and power charger each day.  While in the testing location, these devices may be used for SOL testing ONLY.  Accessing other websites, programs, social media, emails, or network folders is prohibited and is subject to the same consequences stated above.

While the main testing window is from Thursday, May 16 through Wednesday, May 22, this policy applies to all make ups and retakes as well.  The SOL schedule can be found on the Chantilly HS webpage: https://chantillyhs.fcps.edu/student-services/testing/spring-sol-schedule.  It is important that your child attend school on these days and have a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast before testing.  If your child has an unavoidable conflict that could result in your child missing a testing day, they will be moved to a makeup date prior to Friday, May 31.   

The Virginia Department of Education requires high school students enrolled in an SOL course to take the EOC test if the student needs a verified credit for graduation or if the student has not yet met federal testing requirements (1 Math, 1 Reading, and 1 Biology SOL attempt taken during grade 9-12).  Students who have met the testing requirements for graduation and federal accountability are not allowed to test.  If you have questions about SOL testing, please contact your child’s school counselor.

Chantilly High School Sports Physical Registration now open!

It is time to start planning for the 2019-2020 school year and Chantilly High School Sports Physical Night is about a month away!  The first step to participate in any preseason or afterschool athletic activity is completing a sports physical.  The Chantilly High School Athletic Training Department will be offering sports physicals at Chantilly High School on Wednesday, June 5th, 2017. This physical will be good for all sports and out of season practices (green days, yellow days, and weight room workouts) for the 2019-2020 school year.  This event is a fundraiser for the Chantilly High School Athletic Training Department and goes to support the athletes at Chantilly High School.  The cost of the physical is $50 when you register online, $60 for walk-ins. There are five time slots in 30 minute increments, beginning at 5:30pm. 

Hosting this event is our Athletic Training Program’s only fundraiser for the year.

We are always looking for medical and non-medical volunteers to assist us for the event. If you are interested in helping out, please contact us at kabishop@fcps.edu or click on the registration link to sign up.
