🚀Lightspeed Classroom Management

As part of our commitment to creating a safe and focused learning environment for our students, our school is using a classroom management tool that will help teachers better connect with student devices during classes. We are continuing to expand our use over the coming weeks. This tool will provide teachers with a number of helpful features: 

  • Easily view student screens in real time from the teacher console to see which students may need guidance or support.
  • Focus student attention on a particular website on their device to minimize distractions.
  • Pause student access to the internet to focus on other classroom tasks.

We believe this classroom management tool will allow us to maximize class time to support your student’s learning while at school. Please note that student devices will not be monitored outside of school hours. The regular filters remain in place on school devices, but once they are home, teachers cannot monitor students. As parents, we would like to encourage you to sign up for your own Lightspeed reports, which will allow you to see how your child is spending time on the computer during and after school hours.

✍️Principal Evaluation Parent/Guardian Feedback Form

On Monday, March 18, Mosaic Elementary parents/guardians will be sent an email containing a link to complete the online FCPS Principal Evaluation Parent/Guardian Feedback Form. This questionnaire is part of the VDOE-mandated Performance Evaluation Program for principals and offers parents/guardians an opportunity to provide anonymous input about various topics related to our school. These topics include how the principal demonstrates/impacts instructional leadership, school climate, management, communication and community relations, culturally responsive and equitable leadership, and professionalism within the school.

 

The questionnaire will be administered between March 18 and April 5. When you receive an email from FCPS Surveys, please take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire. Your feedback matters!

  🔬Einstein Night - April 25

Einstein Night is the night that ALL students from Mosaic ES are invited to showcase a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math project of their choice. The event is free and open to all grade levels.

If you plan on presenting on Einstein Night, please register online. Forms are due March 22, 2024.  Once you have signed up, you will be given a design packet that will allow you to plan your project in more detail.  We hope to see you there!!

Email any questions to Ms. Avery at [email protected]

📝Student Intentions 2024-2025

A blue Student Intention form was sent home last week. If you haven’t already done so, please complete the form for each child you have at Mosaic ES and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible. This information is important as staffing is based on enrollment, and state regulations require that we determine the educational intentions of students leaving FCPS. Additionally, if you have moved, or plan on moving, please contact Jenny Davisson to update your information. Thank you!

❤️National School Social Work Week

March 3-9 is National School Social Work Week. Social workers in FCPS help to prevent social, emotional, and behavioral factors from affecting a student's ability to perform at their best. Their primary goal is to remove barriers that prevent a student from fulfilling their academic potential. Social workers are assigned to every school and center in the school system. We are lucky to have Susan Daly as our social worker at Mosaic! She is a wonderful support to our students and families! Learn more about the role of social workers in FCPS.

✏️PTA Events
