Week of May 13th-May 17th

Papa John's Teacher Delivery Night

I am thrilled to share the wonderful news that our Teacher Pizza Delivery fundraiser with Papa John’s was a huge success! The fundraiser was an excellent way for our staff to celebrate the kick off to SOL week, as we dressed up, decorated cars, and delivered pizza to our Fairfield Family.


I speak for the entire staff when I say that we feel blessed to work in such a loving and supportive community and that we work with the absolute best students and families ever!! Thank you for supporting us. We appreciate your generosity.



THANK YOU!!!

Mr. Knapp

SOAR with FOUR

As the school year winds down, we’d like to review and hear from you! We revamped our “Caught Being Good” program and implemented Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) known as “Soar with Four.” Please complete the following parent/guardian survey by Friday, May 31st to help us better this initiative for next year. Thank you for your support and we hope the Soar with Four expectations have transferred to your homes and our community!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

A big THANK YOU to our amazing PTA for making our teachers feel extra special during Teacher Appreciation Week. The teachers enjoyed a luncheon to end their work week.

Watch D.O.G.S. Program

The PTA will be launched the Watch D.O.G.S.

(Dads of Great Students) program in January 2017.


What are the goals of a Watch D.O.G.S. program?

1. To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.

2. To provide extra sets of eyes and ear to enhance school security and reduce bullying.


Who are Watch D.O.G.S and how does Watch D.O.G.S. work?

Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official Watch D.O.G.s. school.


What do Watch D.O.G.S. do (while they at school)?

During the day, Watch D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, patrol the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.
