    Happy New Year


    Attention 9th Grade Families

    In an effort to promote mental health awareness in our teens, the Unified Mental Health Team (UMHT) at Potomac Falls High School will be offering the Mental Health Matters presentation to ninth graders on January 12th and 13th during Health and PE classes.  The presentation educates students about resiliency and healthy ways to manage life’s stressors using the Sources of Strength model.  Help-seeking behaviors are taught for when students may be experiencing mental health struggles.  They are taught to share their concerns with a trusted adult.  The lesson is presented by the school psychologist, school social worker, and school counselors. Students are given information as how to contact UMHT members for follow-up, as well as contact information for urgent situations.   If you do not wish for your student to participate, please send an email to your child’s HE/PE Teacher by Friday, January 8th opting your child out of the presentation. Additionally, if you have any questions please contact Dr. Gallup Larsen at Virginia.Larsen@lcps.org.

     
    Feed Me Friday
    The Feed Me Friday Holiday Baking Championship welcomes all Potomac Falls students and staff to show off their skills in the kitchen and compete for a spot in the mid-January finale. Contestants need to submit their masterpieces in one (or all!) of the following categories: tallest croquembouche, a dozen decorated holiday cookies, or a surprise inside dessert. The bakers with the highest scores will have their final desserts judged by local culinary specialists! Registration is open, just sign-up for more details or join the Remind by texting @feedmepfhs to 81010.

    Self-Care During Break
     
    With all the changes we have experienced this past year, it is normal to experience many feelings. As we prepare for our upcoming break, it is important to take this time to recharge and work on self-care. Self-care is giving others the best of ourselves instead of giving what we have left. Reflect on what type of self-care is best for you. Is it going for long walks? Talking to others? Journaling? Exercising? While schools are closed, we invite you to review some of our resources below. On behalf of the PFHS United Mental Health Team, we wish you a safe and healthy holiday season and look forward to reconnecting in the new year!

    Live Virtual Lesson from the Counseling Dept

    The School Counseling department will be providing students with a live virtual classroom lesson on December 7th for 9th & 10th graders and December 14th for 11th & 12th graders. The lessons will be provided by the student’s school counselor. Students will receive a calendar invite from their school counselor that includes the time and the Google Meet link to attend. The lesson will be about 15-20 minutes with helpful tips for the virtual environment along with Naviance resources and an activity. There will be a quick survey assigned for students to complete at the end of the presentation. 

    Students have also been added to their grade level counseling Schoology group. It is listed on your Schoology interface as PFH School Counseling – Your class & graduation year (ex. School Counseling - Freshman Class of 2023). The school counseling department will be updating this page with resources and important information for students during the school year.

    We look forward to connecting with you and hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy!

    Parents/Guardians,

    Even though we are in a virtual school environment, please email me your student's Allergy Action Plan, Asthma Action Plan, Seizure Emergency Action Plan, Authorization for Medication Administration and/or Diabetic Medical Management Plan as applicable.  We would like to be ready to pivot quickly to the hybrid model and provide for your student's medical needs.  Also, in a virtual environment we want your student's teacher to be aware of any health concerns.  My email address is Amy.Hisel@lcps.org PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF MEDICATIONS OR MEDICAL SUPPLIES AT THIS TIME.   Please note that if your student requires an inhaler during the school day, they will need a spacer available in school due to concerns related to COVID-19.

    WINTER ATHLETICS Paperwork DUE December 2

    Winter sports are almost here!  While tryouts begin for basketball December 7, followed by gymnastics, swim and wrestling on December 14, the registration/paperwork turn in deadline is set for December 2. 

     

    Because of Covid 19 protocols, there is a need to have firm tryout numbers well in advance for each sport.  This is why a hard deadline has been set for 4pm on December 2.  We absolutely cannot accept registrations after that time.  Be sure to register at www.potomacfallsathletics.org and turn doctor’s physical paperwork in to Mrs. Brown in the athletics department. 

    Contact her with questions at Susan.D.Brown@lcps.org

     


    PFHS Math Lab 2020-21

    Math lab provides students the opportunity to receive assistance towards understanding the topics presented
    in their math class. The lab gives students the chance to ask questions from their notes and then reinforces
    their understanding of these topics by working on homework or assessment questions.

     
    Students will dial into the meeting link posted in their Schoology class and work with the assigned teachers.
    Students will complete the google form provided by the Math Lab teacher. Math Lab is open the following
    time:
     
    Blocks Time
    1/5 9:30 am– 10:30 am
    2/6 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
    3/7 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm
    4/8 2:45 pm – 3:45 pm

    The intent of math lab is for all students in courses Algebra 2 and below to gain additional support outside of
    classroom when they need help in math. Math Lab is NOT a tutoring session, nor should it be expected that
    the student will have one on one support for the entire time. It is expected all students will bring their notes,
    homework, and all other relevant support materials in order to work with the math lab teacher and patiently wait
    for their turn. Sessions will be recorded.
     
    • Math Lab attendance will be subject to teacher discretion and space availability
    • ALL PFHS policies are expected to be followed

    The intent of math lab is for all students in courses Algebra 2 and below to gain additional support outside of
    classroom when they need help in math. Math Lab is NOT a tutoring session, nor should it be expected that
    the student will have one on one support for the entire time. It is expected all students will bring their notes,
    homework, and all other relevant support materials in order to work with the math lab teacher and patiently wait
    for their turn. Sessions will be recorded.
     
    • Math Lab attendance will be subject to teacher discretion and space availability
    • ALL PFHS policies are expected to be followed

    Parents/Guardians,

    Panthers Helping Panthers (video)

    Last June, Potomac Falls High School asked for your support of our community’s families who faced significant needs due to the COVID-19 crisis. 


    The response from the Potomac Falls community was amazing and inspiring. Through your donations, the school provided assistance through the summer and early fall to our school’s students and families. 


    While our devoted and heroic school cafeteria workers continue to provide meals for Potomac Falls students and families, this assistance is not meant to provide full and complete nutritional needs. 


    As the COVID-19 crisis continues, many of our Potomac Falls students and families continue to live with food insecurity. 


    The time has come again for Potomac Falls High School to ask for your support. 

    With cash and check donations now not possible, we ask for your financial donation in $25 dollar increments to go toward the purchase of grocery store gift cards that will be distributed to our students and families in need. 


    To make a donation, please go to the PTSO’s Panthers Helping Panthers link on the Potomac Falls website.

    https://potomac-falls-ptso.square.site/product/panthers-helping-panthers/31?cs=true 


    We understand that not all are in a position to give, and ask that you donate what you can at this time.


    Thank you for your kindness, generosity, and compassion.  


    Once a Panther always a Panther.

    Good afternoon, Panther Community!

    Right now, we are planning for hybrid students to return to the school building starting January 21. However, much may have changed since the spring when you last made a decision on whether your student wanted hybrid learning or 100% distance. Therefore, all parents will have to restate which they prefer in ParentVUE by November 20th.
     
    Who needs to enter the choice of hybrid or 100% distance learning? All parents/guardians of LCPS students must complete the survey in ParentVUE. Here's how.
     
    When is the survey due? The survey is currently open and must be completed by November 20 at 8pm.
     
    Can I change my mind later? No. This will be a binding choice for the entire second semester of the 2020-2021 school year, from January 21 to June 15. Students whose families do not select an option by November 20th at 8 PM will be enrolled in Option 1 (hybrid). Note: transitioning to hybrid instruction is not guaranteed and is dependent on public health metrics and other data. The selection made for Semester 2 has no impact on the current Semester 1 learning option for your student.
     
    Where can I get more information? LCPS has a website devoted to the transition to hybrid at ---. The 2nd Semester Guide may also be helpful. 
     
     
    If you have questions about what hybrid and distance learning will look like at Potomac Falls, we will be hosting a Town Hall on Monday from 5:00-6:00pm at http://lcps.org/pfhs/townhall2020. Because of the number of people who will be watching, we are collecting questions at https://forms.gle/gtadJQTCKN3K4MrDA. We will discuss the answers to those questions during the town hall as time permits. All the questions and answers will also be posted online afterward as a resource.
