PARCC Testing

Posted April 10th, 2016 by Mrs. Lewis

We will test all students in grades 3-6 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday this week in the morning. If a child arrives to school after 8:50a.m., he/she will not be able to enter their classroom or test with his/her class. Please help your children off to a good start each day with a calm and cheerful morning and a good breakfast. Please ensure that they get enough sleep and encourage them to do their best. This is their chance to “show what they know!” Fairview students performed very well on the PARCC assessment last year, and they are very prepared to do well again this year!

NED was Here!

Posted April 8th, 2016 by Mrs. Lewis

The NED Show came to Fairview today!  The NED Show is a character education program that centers around three important messages that have life long relevance: Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best. During the assembly, students learned about the importance of these three life skills while also enjoying storytelling, magic, humor and yo-yo tricks.

It was a Hole in One!

What a night! Monday, April 4th, 2016 was the All School Art Show and it was a hole-in-one! Fairview’s interactive mini golf course art show from 6-8pm was full of paper mache sculptures, thematic holes and a crocodile! Families, staff and friends all came to enjoy the night and I could not be more proud of our wonderfully creative students for helping put on such a great night!

The week of February 28 through March 5 is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Illinois.

Illinois Report Card and 5Essentials Survey

Posted February 26th, 2016 by Mrs. Lewis

Teachers, parents/guardians, and students across Illinois have the opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. The survey is 26 questions and is estimated to take 10 minutes to complete. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. If at least 20% of our families complete it, a parent supplement will be generated. Right now, 11% of our families have completed the survey. We hope to meet the target this year at Fairview.  If you don’t have access to a computer, you can use one at the local library or take it in the office at Fairview. Call the office at 847-357-5700 if you are interested in taking the survey at school.

To take the parent survey, please visit between now and March 11, 2016. When searching for our school name, look for Fairview Elementary School in Hoffman Estates. Parent and student identities will be kept confidential and survey responses will not be linked to any individual. Please take only one survey per family.
