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

Halloween Reminders

Posted October 19th, 2014 by Mrs. Lewis

The most thrilling October event for many children (and adults) is Halloween. On Friday, October 31, our costume parade will start at 1:15p.m., and classroom parties will be from 1:40-2:45p.m.  Here are a few reminders to ensure that we have a safe and fun event at Fairview.

  • District 54 School Board Policy 7:190(a)/7:190(a)-AP prohibits weapons or look-alike weapons at school.
  • Roller blades, scooters, violent costumes, and temporary hair color is not permitted.
  • Children should bring their costumes to school, but cannot wear them to school. We won’t have lunch recess, as students begin changing into their costumes after they are done eating. Morning kindergarten* is the exception; see below.
  • All food served at the parties will be purchased by the PTA. If your child brings food to school it will be sent home with students if it is individually wrapped with a nutrition label. If food is not individually wrapped with a nutrition label, it will disposed of.
  • If weather permits, we will parade outdoors. To ensure student safety, we will place cones along the parade route around the building. Family members should stand on the outside of the cones as students will walk on the inside, closest to the school. If the costume parade is held indoors due to weather, parents will stand in the middle of the gym while students parade around them.
  • Classroom parties are limited to the number of attendees. Only students, teachers, room parents and the party volunteers may be in the classroom during the party.
  • *Morning kindergarteners can come to school in their costumes. Their parade will be held indoors at 9:30a.m., and their party will be held from 9:45-10:45a.m.
