MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL OPHUS
Dear Fairview Families,
On Tuesday, Fairview hosted its annual Science Fair, and it was amazing! I am so impressed with the research, scientific models, and findings that were shared by our students. They did such a great job creating science projects that were engaging to the audience and informative, and they shared confidently with everyone who visited their table. Thanks to all students who participated and parents who helped them along the way. Special thanks to Sara Christensen for all of her efforts in organizing and coordinating all of the details that allowed this educational experience to take place.
Heading into next week, we are excited to host the Fairview Follies on Tuesday. Parents and guests of performers are welcome to attend during the time slot provided by Mrs. Happ and Ms. O’Donnell. The show will be recorded and shared with a broader audience of students, staff and parents in the coming weeks. This will be the first indoor performance we’ve been able to host since the pandemic began. We are very excited to see students on stage in the gym once again!
Last Friday was the last day of the second trimester and today, students will come home from school with their report cards. Please look for these in student backpacks today and contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions. I am proud of our students for all of their hard work they’ve shown during the past few months and look forward to finishing out our school year strong during the third trimester. Thank you for continuing to partner with us in helping our students learn and grow. Please take a moment to read through the rest of today’s newsletter, and have a wonderful weekend!

STUDENT DROP-OFF ZONE
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.

"ANGST: RAISING AWARENESS AROUND ANXIETY"
Thanks to everyone who came out to Lincoln for the screening of "Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety" and our enlightening panel discussion. It’s not too late to view this powerful new documentary! If you missed the in-person screening, you can still view the film on-demand through March 3. To watch the on-demand screening, please access the film at this link and select “Click Here for the Virtual Event.”
"Angst" is intended to start a conversation around the growing problem of anxiety. It features world champion swimmer Michael Phelps, experts in the field, and regular teens, who come together to explore the academic and social stress and pandemic fears and uncertainty that have increased mental health challenges among young people. The film breaks down what is currently going on and what young people can do to help themselves and others. It includes candid interviews and provides tips, tricks, strategies, and resources to help reset thinking patterns, push back against anxiety and support others.
We hope you can view “Angst” before March 3!
