Principal’s Message

Posted December 18th, 2014 by Mrs. Lewis
As the winter break approaches, there is a buzz of excitement in the building as students and staff are looking forward to two weeks of fun and relaxation!  Friday’s winter sing-along and classroom parties are the perfect way to end 2014 at Fairview! We have two reminders for tomorrow:
 
·     Remember to send a lunch with your child as we had Pizza Thursday today – there will be no pizza lunch on Friday.
·     If your child did not return a permission slip for a Blizzard treat, please send a treat for your child to eat during the party. The permission slip incorrectly stated that plain Blizzards would be available for students who didn’t return a form. We can’t provide food to students who didn’t return a permission slip.

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! NBRS Aba Kumi (2) NBRS Ceremony (1) NBRS Freddie at Ceremony

Heigh-Ho…Heigh-Ho…It’s Off to Camp We Go

Posted October 28th, 2014 by Mrs. Lewis

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!IMG_1354IMG_1355 IMG_1390 IMG_1396 IMG_1399
