Today Fairview had a fabulous Blue Ribbon Celebration with families, school board members, and District 54′s superintendent, associate superintendent, and assistant superintendents visiting the school. Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod and Trustee Mike Gaeta were also in attendance. Mayor McLeod issued a Proclamation for Fairview’s accomplishment at a Falcon Forum! In addition, Fairview students shared projects showing their pride in the school.
On Tuesday, Mrs. Gurga and Ms. Nischbach, a 3-4 teacher, represented Fairview School in Washington, D.C. as they received the NBSR 2014 plaque! Classrooms stopped what they were doing to watch the live-stream of the ceremony and saw Mrs. Gurga and Ms. Nischbach walk across the stage to have their photo taken with Ms. Aba Kumi, the director of the NBRS Program from the Department of Education. They had a wonderful time in Washington, D.C. and were so proud to represent Fairview!

The 6th graders couldn’t have asked for better weather on their annual outdoor education trip on October 17th. The trip to Nature’s Classroom in Mukwonago, Wisconsin was filled with community building, whole group activities and student-selected classes. The bus ride home was VERY quiet as all the students were exhausted after the fun-filled day!
Mr. Mark Spreyer came to the 3/4 classes to teach us all about owls! We learned all about their habitats, behaviors and got to see three live owls. Now we are experts on Screech Owls, Saw-Whet Owls and Great Horned Owls!
