Well it's nearing the end of February and we are plugging away. So much illness this winter- we will be happy to see flu season come to an end! For those of you whose families were affected by flu this winter, we hope you're on the mend and getting back to doing the things you love.
I continue to be amazed by and honored to be a part of the Fairview community. We are so blessed with wonderful students and tremendously dedicated staff. Our students are in the middle of raising money for their Mini Thon, which is coming up on March 2. It is such a joy to see the students working towards such a worthy cause and to see our teachers working to help them understand the importance of working towards a cause that extends beyond their little corner of the world. It's a valuable lesson for all of us! Mrs. Stupka, Mrs. Bergenstock and our student council members are leading the way and making us proud.
STEM Night was fabulous and I am grateful to everyone that helped to make that a successful event. So many volunteers and dedicated staff came together to make the event a success. Students were engaged throughout the evening in various activities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. In addition to our adult volunteers and staff members, we had several high school students lend their talents to help our students have a great night. Thanks to all!
Our 4th and 5th grade Academic Bowl team members made us proud earlier this month with their strong performances at the annual competition. The academic bowl competition is an intense event that requires a lot of preparation and we want to thank our all their hard work and also our advisors, Mrs. Lund and Mrs. Estep for helping them to prepare.
These are just a snapshot of some of the awesome things that have been happening at Fairview! I will post again soon with another update.
