Dear Fairburn Families,

 

Thanks to each of you that have taken time to attend your child’s Parent Teacher Conference.  If you want more information abut your child’s new Progress Report, there is an online parent training available at: http://www.lausd.net/cdg/DOI/ProgressReporting/M4/story.html .  

 

We have a week off from school for the Thanksgiving holiday. School will be closed November 20 – 24, 2017. This is a perfect time to practice the attitude of APPRECIATION. I want to take a moment to thank all of our teachers, staff and parents, but especially our hard working volunteers for the support and energy you bring to our school and our programs.  As we gear up for all the activities rushing towards us as we head for the month of December, the staff and I are reminded again and again of the important contribution all you make to Fairburn Avenue Elementary School.  We truly appreciate everything that you do.

 

I hope many of you can come up to school Friday morning to participate in my second Coffee with the Principal scheduled for Friday, December 1st at 8:30 AM in the Multi Purpose Room off the Parent Patio entrance on Rochester.   I will be sharing important school information and hearing from you about any topics that you wish to discuss regarding our school. I am excited to share that our LAUSD School Board Member – Nick Melvoin will be on hand to meet all of you and introduce himself to our Fairburn Parents.  I hope you can come and meet him.   

 

Thanks to everyone that has contributed items to our Operation Gratitude.  We are still accepting items through December 8th.

 

Plan now to attend Fairburn’s Holiday Student Performances which will be held the last week of school before the Winter break. Just as last year, our students will be singing songs and sharing information about the many cultures represented at Fairburn and the Winter Holidays that each celebrate.  We will have a program that is balanced, educational and celebrates the holidays of Lunar New Year, Hanukkah, Diwali, Ramadan, Kwanzaa and Christmas. This year the parents are invited to view our show as follows:  Grade 4 and Kinder Rooms 6 & 7 families are invited on Wednesday, December 13 at 8:30 AM.  Grades TK, 2 & 3 families are invited on Thursday, December 14 at 8:30 AM. Grades 1 & 5 and Kinder Rooms 8 & 10 families are invited on Friday, December 15 at 8:30 AM.

 

Enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday!

 

Pam Marton, Principal pmarton@lausd.net
