School Hours

Posted August 30th, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

The school day begins promptly at 8:40 for all students. We ask that students walking or being dropped off arrive at school by the 8:25 bell when children may enter the building. Please be aware that we do not have supervision outside prior to 8:25, so we ask that our students do not arrive earlier than this time. Announcements begin at 8:40, so that our day of learning can begin immediately following announcements. Dismissal is at 3:00, except for Wednesday when dismissal is at 2:30.

Welcome Kindergartners!

Posted August 30th, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

After a fabulous first week of school for grades 1-6, we’re ready to welcome our kindergartners to their first day of school on Monday! Although many kindergartners were in the building for screening and Open House this past week, we will have staff members waiting outside to help them get to their classrooms whether they ride the bus or are being dropped off. All students enter the building through the front doors.

Changes and Additions

Posted August 19th, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

We have a few changes and additions to announce! Last spring, Miss Tara Nischbach was married and is now Mrs. Tara Cusack. Mrs. Lenora Swanson will fulfill a long-term subbing position for Mrs. Rebecca Zabiello who will return mid-November. Mrs. Swanson has fulfilled other long-term subbing positions at Fairview before. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our two new classroom teachers, Miss Ashton Nisbet (Room 115) and Mrs. Christy Molidor (Room 119). Some of you may remember Miss Nisbet as she student-taught in Mrs. Cusack’s room last fall. She then took long-term subbing positions in the District  54 for the winter and spring. Mrs. Molidor is coming to us from St. Charles where she previously taught, bringing seven years of experience.

Summer Fun!

Posted August 2nd, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

What does the Fairview staff do over the summer?  Whether it is serve causes near and dear to our hearts, travel, or just spend time with family and friends, the staff know how to relax!

Busy Week

Posted June 12th, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

It’s been an exciting week with the sixth grade Rite of Passage Wednesday afternoon and our last Falcon Forum and yearbook signing yesterday! We’re hoping that the rain holds off for Field Day today! Mr. Hawkins will set up for both an outdoor and indoor Field Day because we’re going to practice the Key of Flexibility and hold as much of the event outdoors as we are able. We may have to move between indoor and outdoor, and the students will have fun no matter what! Please remember to send lunch, an extra treat, water bottle, hat, and have your child wear gym shoes and play clothes. Also, sunblock needs to be applied at home – even on a cloudy day, we can get sunburned!

I’m Good!

Posted June 3rd, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

Digital Art Club has worked really hard on creating a lip-dub to the song “I’m Good” by the Mowgli’s.  The song was written for an anti-bulling project called Team Band Together.  The organization and musical group have created two music videos promoting self esteem and having a positive outlook on life.  Together Miss Ryan and the Digital Art Club rehearsed and filmed our version of “I’m Good”.  Enjoy our lip dub!

Fond Farewells

Posted June 2nd, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

As we look ahead to the end of the year, we have a few farewells to announce. Mrs. Karen Chin, a 5-6 multigrade teacher, has accepted a position as a social studies teacher and interventionist at Addams Junior High School. Mrs. Marcee Parisi, also a 5-6 multigrade teacher, has accepted a position as an interventionist at Ender-Salk Elementary School. Both schools are in District 54, so they won’t be going far as they begin their new positions. We wish them the very best! Additionally, three of our instructional assistants are retiring –  Mrs. Jan Schlau, Mrs. Smita Shah, and Mrs. Patti Hlavacek. We might imagine that they will be sleeping in and relaxing in the future, but knowing all three of them, it’s likely that they will be busier than ever! Good luck to our colleagues…they’ll be Fairview Falcons forever!

Last Falcon Flyer of the Year

Posted May 8th, 2015 by Mrs. Lewis

Please take time to read the last Falcon Flyer of the school year, safety tips from the Schaumburg Police Dept., and information about a family night out at a Schaumburg Boomers game. The game sounds like a ton of fun with everyone getting a chance to run the bases and fireworks afterwards! Plus, a portion of each ticket sale will benefit the District 54 Foundation!
