Let the Summer Begin!

Posted June 16th, 2014 by Mrs. Lewis

Dear Fairview Families,

I can’t believe this is the last Falcon Flash for this school year!  While the year flew by, we accomplished so much. We want to thank our PTA and our volunteers for the wonderful support they provided to Fairview this past year.  We would like to extend a special thank you to Jen Minch and Suzy Blakely for serving as our PTA co-presidents and to Nisha Patel for serving as vice president. They provided countless hours supporting our PTA committees and helping with many Fairview events.

We had a fabulous Field Day on the last day of school! The weather and the fun games made it a great day!  Many thanks to Mr. Hawkins for his planning and hard work, and to the volunteers for overseeing the activities.  Without our volunteers we couldn’t hold a Field Day.  In the afternoon, we held a Falcon Forum, which included a lot of student recognition for achievements and club participation. Students also had time in the classrooms to exchange autographs and say good-bye to one another.

We held the 6th Grade Rite of Passage Celebration on the last Wednesday afternoon to bid our 6th graders a fond farewell. We wish them the best as they move on to junior high.

Please be sure to check your child’s report card envelope for information on the progress he or she made this year. We strongly encourage your support in making time for both reading and math over the long break. We wish you a great summer!

Falcon Flash – May 31st, 2014

Posted May 31st, 2014 by Mrs. Lewis

Dear Fairview Families,

I’m happy that the warm weather has finally arrived! Our students enjoyed the opportunity to go outside and play during lunch recess.  Mr. Hawkins is also happy that he can take PE classes outside now.

Math packets

All children will bring home a math packet to help maintain their math skills over the summer.  We strongly encourage your support in allowing time for both reading and math practice over the long break.  Students who bring their completed math packets to school during the first week back at school will receive a small incentive from their classroom teacher.  We do not have extra math packets, so please put them in a safe place.

Lost and Found

Please check or have your child check the Lost and Found before the last day of school as all leftover items will be donated over the summer. We also have several pairs of glasses and children’s jewelry being held in the office that have been turned in throughout the year.
