Monthly Archive: June 2015



June 22nd  is the last day of school and early dismissal.


June 22nd is also our fundraiser at The Lighthouse so grab the family and get a treat to celebrate the end of the school year.  Mention Fairview and the school will get a percentage of the sales!


We wanted to take a moment to thank Mr. Famulary on his leadership this year.

Thank you to all of our volunteers without whom none of our events would happen.

Thank you to all our teachers and staff for a great year.

To our departing fifth graders and fifth grade families, we will miss you and wish you the best of luck on your new adventures. “You can take the family out of Fairview but you can’t take Fairview out of the family!”


Finally, our best wishes to the incoming PTO Executive Board and our new principal, Mr. Melando.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered today at Field Day. Mother Nature co-operated and the children had a great time. Huge shout out to our fantastic Field Day Committee – Lisa Ardolina, Marya Baeta, Lauren English and Seegal Moses. They were stressed out worrying about the weather but everything turned out fantastic. We also need to say a special thank you  to Rob Stratton and his daughter Haley for once again coming to dj for us.

Field Day

Tomorrow is field day! The weather is not ideal but it is not a washout.

For new families that may not be familiar with Field Day here are some basics:

1) Your child will be given a t-shirt tomorrow that is either blue or white depending on what “team” they have been assigned to for the day’s events. This t-shirt is paid for by PTO funds raised throughout the year. They are great keepsakes and can be worn for spirit wear days too!

2) The children will be playing old fashioned games beginning shortly after 9 with their class team mates. Bragging rights go to the winners.

3) Lunch consisting of a hamburger or hot dog, chips, water and a cold slice of watermelon will be provided. Talercio’s will be expertly grilling for us again this year. At the end of the day the children will get an italian ice as well. If your child does not eat the lunch or snack provided please pack them something. Lunch is paid for with PTO funds raised throughout the year.

4) Children must wear sneakers.

5) Parents and siblings are welcome to come and watch but lunch/ices are only provided for the children that attend the school.

6) The school day ends at regular dismissal time.

If this is your child’s first field day then they will be having a blast. If it is your child’s last field day at Fairview…no crying allowed! 

Without your generous contributions throughout the year there would be no events like Field thank you very much for your support!
