April Newsletter for Fairview

Fairview News

April, 2010

Nancy Beck, Principal

Only two months of school left!  It’s hard to believe.  I know soccer or baseball or other special activities will begin soon, but it’s important to keep the students reading and learning for the rest of the year!  Try to maintain a consistent bedtime and students will be ready to learn here at school.  We still have lots to learn!

Fairview Fun Night

April 16 is Fairview Fun Night.  Plan to come and enjoy the games, food, and prizes.  It’s always a wonderful time for children and their families.   The PTO is working hard to raise funds for their many projects that support students and teachers at Fairview.  Support the PTO and have fun! 

  No teacher requests please

Please note that we are again asking that you not request teachers for next year, but trust us to make good choices for your child.  If you have specific concerns or feel your child has specific needs that I need to consider, please set up a meeting with me to discuss those needs.  I do my very best to accommodate the needs of all the students.
