MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL OPHUS
Dear Fairview Families,
We’ve had a good start to February at Fairview this week. Our staff had productive conversations about students and instruction at our Winter Data Day on Thursday. We are so thankful for our substitute teachers for their help all week long, especially on Thursday, so we could relieve our teachers to attend our data meetings. Several of our substitute teachers are also Fairview parents. What a great way to serve our school community! We are so appreciative of the time you give to support our students. If you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher or substitute instructional assistant, please let me know or apply online!
Next Friday is our PTO Falcon Jump fundraiser. All week, the PTO is sponsoring a spirit week as we gear up for Friday. Students can turn in their collection envelopes to the front office at any time once they are finished gathering donations. We’ve already surpassed the $5,000 mark which allowed our students to choose what they wanted to do during PE during one of their PE classes this week! For more information about Falcon Jump including our spirit week themes, directions on how to submit donations, information about student and school prizes, and more please see this link.
Looking ahead to next week, we have a PTO meeting coming up on Monday at 6:30 pm in our LRC. Enter through the front entrance and head down to the LRC if you are interested in attending. In addition, District 57 technology staff members will be holding a virtual Parent Technology Information Night on Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. At this meeting, parents will learn more about parental controls for the chromebook among other technology related topics. We hope you are able to attend if you are interested.
Thank you for taking time to read through today’s newsletter. Have a great weekend!
DRESS FOR OUTDOOR RECESS
Please make sure your children are dressed to go out for recess. Unless it is raining or the temperature /wind chill is too cold (15 degrees or below, real-feel temperature) the students will go out every day for recess. Please write your student’s last name on a tag in their coat and snowpants so they don't end up in our Lost and Found. It would also be helpful to put their name on the bag that they bring their snow gear in every day.
All students will go out with their class unless we have a doctor’s note limiting their participation. If a student has been ill and he/she is not feeling well enough to participate in all the activities of the school day, perhaps another day at home will insure a healthy return to school.
