Shrevewood's Wise Words


Positivity Project

Positivity Project

Shrevewood is proud to be a Positivity Project (P2) school. The Positivity Project empowers America's youth to build positive relationships and become their best selves.  This is done through weekly lessons in the classroom on different character strengths.  Each week, we will announce the strength for the upcoming week through the News You Choose.  Next week, our character trait will be “Teamwork”.

For individuals, teamwork often means deferring or delaying individual accomplishments in order to ensure that the group maintains a high level of success. Their commitment to the larger group effort makes them both good teammates and citizens. The positive feelings associated with being part of a larger whole can be highly beneficial and combat selfishness and egotism. Our ability to work effectively within group structures is tied directly to the group’s ability to succeed. In schools and workplaces across the world, commitment to teamwork and to the “greater good” helps further learning and achievement for all group members. Maintaining the idea that “Other People Matter” is essential to any successful team environment.  #otherpeoplematter

Lice Resources for Parents and Guardians

The beginning of the school year is a great time to provide information to parents and guardians regarding head lice and its treatment. Although lice do not spread disease, they can be a nuisance and cause great concern in the community.

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) have provided several resources for parents and guardians who are interested in learning more about lice. These documents are available in English and several other languages at the following links: Lice: Treatment and Prevention | Fairfax County Public Schools
