School Health and Medication Pickup

Our School Health Aide, Ms. Leslie Grottle, needs all medication stored in the health room to be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school, Thursday, June 13. Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications are retrieved by the student’s parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services

A medication authorization form is required for any medication, prescription or over-the-counter, to be kept at school. Please be sure medication orders are clear. All information on the form must be completed. Part I must be signed and dated by the parent or guardian. Part II must be signed and dated by your physician. Over-the-counter medication given for headache, muscle pain, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps and antibiotic or anti-viral medication do not need a physician signature. More detailed information is available on the back of the medication authorization form.

Over-the-counter medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled by the parent or guardian. All prescription medication, including physician’s samples, must be labeled by the pharmacist or physician. Please make sure that the label clearly states your student’s name, the name of the medication, the dosage of the medication, and the time interval for administration.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Your cooperation will ensure that we can safely give your student his or her medication. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Leslie Grottle, School Health Aide, at 703-426-5710, or your school public health nurse, Ms. Lisa Yonika, R.N. at 703-388-1324.

This Week in Review

 

Good morning Frost Middle School Families,

We have exactly one week left of school! The last day of school is June 13, 2019.  Students will be released three hours early on that day at 11:15 am.

We had a fantastic showing at the 8th grade party last Friday night.  It was a huge success! The 8th grade students had a ball! Thanks to the PTA for hosting and coordinating this event. It is always a hit!

Please note that Friday will be locker clean-out day. Students will be asked to clean out all of their materials and take them home. Next Tuesday will be the last day for locker use. 

We are finishing up the last few make up and retakes as part of our SOL testing season. In addition, our 8th grade students are visiting Finance Park this week and completing end of year assessments in various courses.

Thank you for all of your support. The students did an amazing job this year as we have seen increases in pass rates in English and Math. Go Falcons!!!

All the best. Have an outstanding weekend!

Anthony

#ONE Frost in Action

This segment is aimed at recognizing students for demonstrating recent improvement or achievement in academics, behavior or citizenship. I want to showcase what ONE Frost means to us!  At the end of each recognition, you will see the name of the nominating teacher or staff member. On a monthly basis, departments and/or faculty members will nominate students. I will meet with all of the students who are recognized to congratulate them on their kindness, hard work, and willingness to accept others into their circle.

Alexis Goriup -Alexis shows up with a positive attitude and willingness to help others when needed. Alexis is there to help her classmates and has no problem encouraging/cheering them on them to do their best no matter the circumstances. Alexis is a pleasure to have in class and her smile is infectious. - Mr. Bazan

Enzo Hiu -  Enzo has shown Other People Matter mindset through Cheering Other's Success. He uses his extraordinary vocabulary to build positive relationships with peers and teachers. No matter what he is doing he is able to connect with others, Enzo is never too busy to give an encouragement. He encourages classmates when they read out loud during class or completing assignments during Falcon Focus. - Ms. Bromell

Jeffery Rivas -Jeffrey works very hard in Science and always puts forth 100% effort. He is always patient and kind to his classmates if they have a question or need help from him. I can always count on him to be a good lab partner for all students in the class.  - Ms. Kenyon

Ashley Pastor -Ashley Pastor is a very patient student whose caring spirit is an enhancement for everyone in her science class. She works well with all classmates and never complains about anything. Ashley helps others when they need it in a calm, enthusiastic manner. She exemplifies “other people matter” by consistently cheering her classmates on to success. - Ms. Shaw

Rafi Omari -Rafi Omari is not only happy for his classmates when they have success (whether it's a great presentation or answering a question correctly), but he also cheers them TO success, by providing verbal encouragement, great teamwork skills, and modeling a "Let's do this!" attitude that lifts both his peers' and his teachers' spirits! He takes pride in his own work, but also demonstrates appreciation for the efforts of his classmates. He is a positive force in the classroom!! - Ms. String

Lizbeth Aguilar-Molina -Lizbeth is one of those students that is a quiet but powerful force for good. Whether she is helping another student with a homework problem, working with a reluctant lab partner or comforting a friend, she is always looking for the good in others and helping them be the best they can be. She is unselfish with her help and her praise and encouragement and proof that you can be cool AND a good student! - Ms. Murphy

Helen Alvarez -Helen is genuinely excited when her peers succeed. She is eager to help them reach success by offering up her notes or her expertise in certain subjects. When her peers experience success, whether for academic or behavioral reasons, Helen cheers them on wholeheartedly. - Ms. Shue

  #ONE Frost in Action

This segment is aimed at recognizing students for demonstrating recent improvement or achievement in academics, behavior or citizenship. I want to showcase what ONE Frost means to us!  At the end of each recognition, you will see the name of the nominating teacher or staff member. On a monthly basis, departments and/or faculty members will nominate students. I will meet with all of the students who are recognized to congratulate them on their kindness, hard work, and willingness to accept others into their circle.

 

Rashmi Thirumlai - I have nominated Rashmi Thirumlai as my math student who exemplifies the Other People Matter mindset.  Rashmi is very helpful to her fellow geometry students, always quick to help others understand or find an easier way to explain a concept to them.  She is always cheerful and upbeat and always looks on the positive side of things! - Ms. Beach

Zara Kepler - Zara consistently comes to class with a positive attitude towards her classmates, and she is always ready to help others. Whether it is helping to explain a math concept or simply lending a pencil, Zara shows that she truly cares about those around her. – Ms. Stratton

Oscar Persky - Oscar often uses his words to encourage and support others in our class. Even when someone seems discouraged and frustrated, Oscar tries to help that student see the brighter side and engage more positively in the lesson. – Ms. Hanson

Paige Mellick - Paige always is willing to help other students in class and supports other students by modeling exceptional behavior. Paige goes above and beyond to say hello to other students and helps people feel recognized/honored. – Mr. Lantis

Emelia Crump - Emmie is a model student and always has a big smile and a great attitude. She is always willing to help her teachers and other students. For example, during Falcon Focus, she often times helps other students with their math. – Mr. Budreau

Sara Majdalawieh - Sara has been a friend to her classmates the entire year. She helps explain concepts to the students sitting around her, is kind and welcoming to new students and has been a positive and friendly person in general. She is always one of the first to volunteer to help - be it a small thing like passing out papers or something bigger. She exemplifies the "other people matter" mindset. – Ms. Brown

Come and join us Friday night at Woodson HS for the spring band concert!

Have a great week!

On a monthly basis, departments and/or faculty members will nominate students. I will meet with all of the students who are recognized to congratulate them on their kindness, hard work, and willingness to accept others into their circle.

Sam Lingenfelter - Sam demonstrates mindfulness in the classroom and understands that his actions and words impact others. He consistently chooses to make a positive impact on his peers. Being mindful of others has helped Sam to build and maintain strong peer relationships. Sam's friends and classmates know they can count on him. - Ms. Rubio

Thalia Sevilla - Thalia demonstrates the value of OtherPeopleMatter on a daily basis with her humor and her kind, caring attitude towards her peers. She ensures that everyone in the class has someone to work with and that everyone feels included. More importantly, Thalia manages to include her peers in a way that makes them feel that they are valued instead of pitied. - Ms. Finley

Iman Afzaly - Iman is quick to offer a friendly smile and greeting to her fellow students, as well as to Frost staff. She is frequently heard extending compliments to others. - Ms. Alexander

Katherine Ramos - Other people definitely matter to Katherine. This is evident when she speaks to her classmates in a soft and understanding tone, when she waits for her friends, so they won't have to walk alone, and when she includes others in peer groups. Her kindness through both words and actions is contagious. - Ms. Pflugrath

Oscar Persky - Oscar often uses his words to encourage and support others in our class. Even when someone seems discouraged and frustrated, Oscar tries to help that student see the brighter side and engage more positively in the lesson. - Ms. Hansen

Fatma Zamrawi - Fatma is always mindful that what she does and says might impact others in class, even her teacher. She is a supportive and caring member of our classroom community in class and during Falcon Focus. I can always count on Fatma to help anyone in need. - Ms. Champagne

Each week will start with a Monday announcement and 5-minute (teacher guided/presentation provided) Study Break; Yoga during Falcon Focus lesson; Wednesday Lunch activity in the café; and end the week with a Friday Spirit Day. Thank you for supporting this focus at home, as stress management is very important as we move into SOL testing and towards the end of the school year.

  #ONE Frost in Action

This segment is aimed at recognizing students for demonstrating recent improvement or achievement in academics, behavior or citizenship. I want to showcase what ONE Frost means to us!  At the end of each recognition, you will see the name of the nominating teacher or staff member. On a monthly basis, departments and/or faculty members will nominate students. I will meet with all of the students who are recognized to congratulate them on their kindness, hard work, and willingness to accept others into their circle.

Sam Lingenfelter - Sam demonstrates mindfulness in the classroom and understands that his actions and words impact others. He consistently chooses to make a positive impact on his peers. Being mindful of others has helped Sam to build and maintain strong peer relationships. Sam's friends and classmates know they can count on him. - Ms. Rubio

Thalia Sevilla - Thalia demonstrates the value of OtherPeopleMatter on a daily basis with her humor and her kind, caring attitude towards her peers. She ensures that everyone in the class has someone to work with and that everyone feels included. More importantly, Thalia manages to include her peers in a way that makes them feel that they are valued instead of pitied. - Ms. Finley

Iman Afzaly - Iman is quick to offer a friendly smile and greeting to her fellow students, as well as to Frost staff. She is frequently heard extending compliments to others. - Ms. Alexander

Katherine Ramos - Other people definitely matter to Katherine. This is evident when she speaks to her classmates in a soft and understanding tone, when she waits for her friends, so they won't have to walk alone, and when she includes others in peer groups. Her kindness through both words and actions is contagious. - Ms. Pflugrath

Oscar Persky - Oscar often uses his words to encourage and support others in our class. Even when someone seems discouraged and frustrated, Oscar tries to help that student see the brighter side and engage more positively in the lesson. - Ms. Hansen

Fatma Zamrawi - Fatma is always mindful that what she does and says might impact others in class, even her teacher. She is a supportive and caring member of our classroom community in class and during Falcon Focus. I can always count on Fatma to help anyone in need. - Ms. Champagne
