Friday’s College and Career Day was a huge success.  We had over 75 Career professionals speak in our classrooms. It was great to see our amazing Fairburn students having such great college & career aspirations! Thanks so much Ms. Carolyn Wells for organizing this special day and to FAB and Mrs. Dot Plukas for their hospitality support.


On Tuesday we practiced our school’s response to a major Earthquake in our annual SHAKE Earthquake Drill.  Our school staff simulated a response to a large earthquake.  Students learned how to Duck, Cover and Hold, then evacuate to the play yard, then our staff took on their roles to ensure that all children and staff are accounted for and safe following the quake.  We have 72 hours of emergency supplies, food and water for the whole school on our campus.  Your child will be safe here until you, or a person identified on your emergency card can get up to school to pick up your child.  In case of an earthquake or any other emergency where you wish to pick up your child, please come to the REQUEST GATE on Westholme Ave. to ask for your child.  


Picture Day is Thursday!  Please have your child look their best and send the Picture envelope with them to school.


Are you ready for Middle School?  Do you know all about some great choices for Middle School for our child?  Start now by doing some research on the best middle school options by attending our upcoming Middle School Options Meeting on Friday, October 20 at 8:15 PM in the MPR.  At this event, which is being coordinated by Suzanne Patterson, our TSP Coordinator, we will have representatives from the best middle schools to share about their programs and application procedures.  We will also have Fairburn Alumni students and their parents who attend these middle schools available to share their personal experiences. Parents from younger grades are welcome, but the presentation will not be as applicable to your child.  

I hope to see all of you on Saturday, October 21 for our FALL FESTIVAL from noon until 4:30 PM on the yard. 


Are you a Gardening Angel?  Ms. Marton and our Facelift Team are recruiting a team of parents who wish to help support our school gardening program.  We will have a get organized meeting on Tuesday, October 24 at 8:15 AM in the MPR.  If you have green thumb, please come and help us! 


I also hope your child is excited about our planned Halloween Day Parade of Masks.  On Tuesday, October 31st, children may bring a costume in a bag to school that day to put on (preferably over their clothes) after lunch.  The parade is open to all parents at 12:45 PM on the yard.  Please no replica weapons, demeaning costumes or scary clown masks!


Have a wonderful week!
