Dear Fairburn Families,


Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Fairburn Avenue Elementary School.  I am so happy to be returning this school year as your child’s Principal.  We are going to have another exciting school year filled with amazing learning experiences provided by our phenomenal teachers and support staff.  This year we welcome some fantastic TK and K Teachers to our staff.  Our FAB (Fairburn Avenue Boosters) parent group is planning some wonderful events to connect families to our school, as a true community that works together to support the programs and instructional needs of the school.  Every activity will be designed to engage you in your child’s education, but also to help our school provide enriching programs and much needed supports for the instructional program that your child will be offered at Fairburn. 


Fairburn has a proud history of being one of the finest public schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. Our teachers, administration, and support staff are committed to helping each child reach his/her maximum potential. Recognizing that you, the parents of our wonderful students, are their first and most important teachers, we look forward to working in partnership with you and your children.


The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 15, 2017 with a 1:28 PM Dismissal.  School hours are from 8:00 a.m. – 2:28 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. This year we will dismiss at 1:28 p.m. every Tuesday to allow teachers to meet for Professional Development. 


The gates will open each day at 7:40 a.m.  Please do not drop off your child before 7:40 a.m. due to safety concerns.  Full price meal prices will be $2.25 for nutrition snack and $2.75 for lunch. Reduced meal prices will be $.30 for nutrition and $.40 for lunch.  Milk is $.75 and orange juice is $.50.


Classroom assignments will be posted on charts located on the Front Door – Fairburn Avenue Entrance after 5 pm on Monday, August 14th.  On Tuesday, August 15th, students are to line up in their new room assignments.  Teachers will have Room numbers signs on the playground.  Just as last year, Parents are welcome to walk their children into school using the Rochester, Parent Patio Gate.  Staff will be available on the yard if you need assistance in finding your child’s room assignment. Kindergarten and TK families will meet their teachers on the Kindergarten Play yard.  Enter the gate on Ohio Ave. 


As we begin a new year, we want to emphasize that student achievement is the focus of our instructional team.  As a parent you are a key member of that team.  Our staff is dedicated to the belief that each child will be provided opportunities to reach their full academic and social potential.  In support of that belief our staff is committed to do the following:

    Have high expectations for all of our learners.

    Provide motivation for the learning process.

    Arrange opportunities for all learners to be successful.

    Provide a caring and positive class atmosphere for all students.

    Implement a rigorous core curriculum

    Strive to be aware of the individual needs of your child.

    Communicate with you regularly regarding your child’s progress.


We rely on your support in all areas of the learning process in order for your child to truly excel.  We need the dedication of our parents to do the following:

     Have high expectations for your child.

     Provide a quiet place for your child to study.

     Encourage your child to complete his/her homework.

     Make sure your child gets an adequate night's sleep.

     See that your child arrives at school on time every day.

     Spend at least 20 minutes per day reading with your child.

     Attend Back to School Day, Parent Conferences & Open House.

     Encourage your child to be positive in his or her learning.    


Again, welcome to the new school year.  Together we’ll make it a fun and productive year of learning for all children and adults.  I am looking forward to meeting your child(ren) and each of you.  Please get involved and help us make this year an amazing experience for your whole family!
