Reminder:  Window for AAP Full-Time (Level IV) Referrals Ends December 15, 2022

Parents/guardians of students in Grades 2-7 who would like their student to be considered for full-time advanced academic programs (level IV AAP services) may submit the AAP Level IV Referral Form to Lisa Rode no later than December 15

The window to submit an AAP Level IV Referral Form is the first day of school through December 15, annually.  Forms for full-time and part-time referrals are available on the AAP Forms Page. No late referrals for Level IV services can be accepted. 

Submitting a referral form for AAP Level IV will initiate a process that begins at the local school and is then completed at the central office level. Our school will put together a portfolio that includes multiple data which are considered holistically. At the central office level, a committee of professionals from various schools review materials to determine eligibility for level IV placement.  Eligibility decisions are communicated by early April. Parents may request a copy of the portfolio that was submitted after they have been turned in for central selection by emailing Lisa Rode.

Referrals for AAP Levels II-III (part-time services) are screened at the local school. 

For more information, there are parent presentations available on the FCPS AAP website (under “Presentations”) that contain information similar to our fall parent information meetings at Kings Glen

Reminder:  Window for AAP Full-Time (Level IV) Referrals Ends December 15, 2022

Parents/guardians of students in Grades 2-7 who would like their student to be considered for full-time advanced academic programs (level IV AAP services) may submit the AAP Level IV Referral Form to Lisa Rode no later than December 15

The window to submit an AAP Level IV Referral Form is the first day of school through December 15, annually.  Forms for full-time and part-time referrals are available on the AAP Forms Page. No late referrals for Level IV services can be accepted. 

Submitting a referral form for AAP Level IV will initiate a process that begins at the local school and is then completed at the central office level. Our school will put together a portfolio that includes multiple data which are considered holistically. At the central office level, a committee of professionals from various schools review materials to determine eligibility for level IV placement.  Eligibility decisions are communicated by early April. Parents may request a copy of the portfolio that was submitted after they have been turned in for central selection by emailing Lisa Rode.

Referrals for AAP Levels II-III (part-time services) are screened at the local school. 

For more information, there are parent presentations available on the FCPS AAP website (under “Presentations”) that contain information similar to our fall parent information meetings at Kings Glen

Parent Advocacy Handbook Distribution

The Minority Student Achievement Oversight Committee (MSAOC) has created a Parent Advocacy Handbook to provide information and support to families as they navigate the FCPS system for their children. It is designed to be particularly useful for families who may be less familiar with such a large school division and/or with schooling in the U.S. 

MSAOC Parent Advocacy Handbooks will be distributed, and are also available on the web in English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Korean at https://www.fcps.edu/parentadvocacyhandbook.  Additionally, copies can be obtained from the FCPS Ombuds Office, Parent Resource Center, and Central Registration.

For additional information contact Michelle Anderson, Kings Glen Family Liaison.

FCPS Cares!

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story, so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees at Kings Glen ES or any FCPS employee.

The Scholastic Book Fair will be coming to the KGES Library from Friday, November 11 through Friday, November 18!  More information, including class shopping times, will be sent home the week of November 7th.  We will be offering family shopping on Friday, November 11 from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.  Please feel free to contact Carolyn Dean if you have any questions.

Fall Scholastic Book Fair – Volunteers Needed

Book fair volunteers are needed to help with fair set up, class previews, sales, and/or pack-up for the Scholastic Book Fair later this month.  If you are interested, please contact Carolyn Dean, Librarian.  We appreciate any time that you can give to this very fun event! 

Veterans Day Celebration

Do you have a veteran or active servicemember in your life? Kings Park and Kings Glen students and their families are invited to post a video message on Flipgrid. Please use this link to share a photo of your veteran and/or tell us about your veteran's service.  Flipgrid access is available with your child's fcpsschool.net login by choosing Join with Google

If you don't have a veteran or active servicemember among your loved ones, you can use this Flipgrid to thank veterans and servicemembers and share what this day means to you.

Please complete your Flipgrid video by Friday November 4, 2022.

Thank you for your participation! We are excited to share this Veteran’s Day Flipgrid tribute with KP/KG community on or before Veterans Day

Attendance Procedures

Attendance is a key component to successful learning.  When students miss too many days of school, they fall behind and struggle to keep up with their classmates.  Some helpful hints to minimize absences for your child:

  • Limit travel to the already-scheduled student holidays.  View the 2022-23 school year calendar here for your planning purposes.
  • Make appointments in the late afternoon so that your child misses as little school as possible.
  • Click here for more helpful tips to help your child be successful by minimizing absences.

If you must take your child out of school for more than one day, it is important to complete the Prearranged Absence form and submit it to Kings Glen as soon as possible for review.  It is helpful to become familiar with the Attendance Regulation so that you can maximize your child’s educational experience.

Yearbook Cover Contest Deadline Friday, November 18

The yearbook cover contest has started at Kings Glen! This year’s theme is “Together We Are G.A.T.O.R.” Please see the flier for more details. The contest ends November 18th. Please turn in all entries to Mrs. Fitzgerald, Art Teacher.  (View Instructions)

If you have already indicated your desire to opt your child out of FLE lessons by using the form provided earlier in the school year, you do not need to complete another form.
