    Picture Day this week! Posted 10/15/18

    Dear Fairburn Families,

     

    Friday’s College and Career Day was a huge success.  We had over 45 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 Ms. Dot Plukas for their hospitality support.

     

    Tuesday, October 16 we will practice 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.  

     

    Our Book Fair is in full swing! The Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings kids the books they want to read. The Fair is open in our Library through Friday of this week. We have a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level, and all purchases will be used to update our library Non-Fiction books collection!

Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. Please come to our book fair, and help shape your child's reading habits! http://www.scholastic.com/bf/fairburnavfuntasticbookfair link can be used to order books online through October 22!

     

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

    I also hope your child is excited about our planned

     

    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 19 at 8:15 PM in the Auditorium.  At this event, which is being coordinated by Suzanne Patterson, our 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.
