    Enjoy your Thanksgiving Break! Posted 11/14/18

    Dear Fairburn Families,


    Thanks to each of you that have taken time this week to attend your child’s Parent Teacher Conference. 


    We are about to have a week off from school for the Thanksgiving holiday.  School will be closed November 19 – 23, 2018. 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.


    The Thanksgiving holiday offers a special opportunity for us all to pause and reflect upon the blessings that each of us has in our lives.  It is a time to hold families and friends just a little closer – to give a few extra hugs and share a few more laughs.  Life gets so busy that sometimes it is easy to forget to let people close to us know how much better our lives are because of them.



    I wish you and your family a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday.


    Pam Marton, Principal
