A Family In Need

Our community has been asked to help a family in need from Leonardo School.  A young mother, her father and twin boys recently lost their home due to a fire.  They have nothing left.  We are collecting gift cards to any store, in any denomination to help them in rebuilding their lives.  If you would like to contribute to this cause, please send your donation to the school office in an envelope marked “Gift Card Donation”.   Anything that you can do to help is greatly appreciated.

Holiday Shoppe is just around the corner…

Please join us in the ELF’S NEST for some holiday shopping.  The children will shop on Tuesday December 2nd and Wednesday December 3rd.  Please see the list below for class times.  We also need some elves to help with shopping and wrapping.  Please visit the sign up to lend your support.  Families are welcome to come and shop together on Tuesday December 2nd from 6:30-8:00pm.



New Homes Needed for Scarecrows

Our beautiful scarecrows need to be taken home today.  If you have not claimed your scarecrow yet, please take him home with you.  We are getting ready to decorate the school for winter and need all scarecrows to find a new home.  Thanks again for your support with this fundraiser.  It was a huge success!  We look forward to seeing our friends again next fall.

Holiday Shoppe is coming….

Our Fairview tradition continues this year.  The Holiday Shoppe Committee needs many hands to make this event a huge success.  Please see the link below for volunteer opportunities.  There are times during the day and at the night event.  There is something for everyone.  Please come on out and enjoy a few hours with the kids and meet some new friends too!

Strategic Planning Committee

The Middletown School District is looking for interested community members that would like to serve on the next Strategic Planning Committee.  Attached is the letter from Central Office with all of the information.  We hope that Fairview has some representation on this committee.  It will be driving the future plans for our schools.


Turkey Trot

It’s Turkey Time!  Fairview’s annual Turkey Trot will take place on Wednesday November 19th @ 9:30 am.  For those that are new to the Turkey Trot, it is a Fairview tradition that also teaches our children the important message of helping to feed the hungry at Thanksgiving time.  Each grade will have races down the soccer field.  Each grade will have 3 girl and 3 boy top finishers.  Mr. Feathers will also race the Fairview Turkey down the field for some fun.  It is a great day to come on up to Fairview, stand on the sidelines and cheer on the students.  It’s also a great photo opportunity.  To enter, each child must sign the permission slip located in the VBP and “pay” the entry fee of 2 cans of food.  The donated food will help feed families that are less fortunate.  Let’s go Fairview!!!
