Dear Fairburn Families,

Welcome back from the winter break and Happy New Year!  Thank you all for your continued support of our school and the generous outpouring of gratitude that our staff received before the winter break. It is our honor to support your beautiful children in their learning journey here at Fairburn Elementary School.

The focus of these next two weeks is on the attitude of Creativity and the Learner Profile of being a Communicator.  Students who are Communicators are able to think and communicate in one or two languages. They can express their ideas by speaking, drawing and writing. They can also communicate using mathematical language and symbols.

How can parents help to develop students who are Communicators at home?

  • Encourage your child to stay in touch with relatives and friends who live in other countries by writing letters, using the phone or sending email.
  • When working on mathematics homework, encourage your child to explain his/her answer to you orally or by drawing a picture.
  • Ask your child thought provoking questions and encourage them to discuss them with you. For example:
    • What would you do if you were scared of someone at school?
    • Is there anything you cannot buy with money?
    • Should you get an allowance? Why or why not?
  • Work with your child to improve his/her listening skills. Being a good listener is an important part of communicating with others.

Thursday, January 11th is our second Prospective Parent Tour. 

Do you have any friends with children that will be ready for K or TK, or any other grade next year?  We will host our second Prospective Parent School Tour on Thursday, January 11 at 8:30 AM.  Please have the parents arrive at the front door of the school at 8:15 AM to be greeted and escorted to the Library to meet with me and parent leaders, then tour our school. Next school year the plan is offer again a TK (Transitional Kindergarten) class for students born between September 2 and December 2, 2013.  So send your neighbors and friends to checkout our wonderful school!


School will be closed next Monday in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.
