Fairview PTO

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!

VBP

VBP stands for virtual back pack. This is the page on the school website where all notices and flyers are posted.  To find it, visit the school website. On the right hand side of the home screen, you will see a tab for the virtual back pack (http://middletownk12.org/domain/1679).  Once you click it, you will be taken to a screen that has tabs on the left by month. Click November and then scroll to find the Turkey Trot form (you may need to click on the “More” link to reveal all available forms and documents). Click the pdf link and then print the forms. Fill it out and return to school with your food donation.

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!!!

Thank You!

Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping with Trunk or Treat. Our first experience with Trunk or Treat was very successful.  We hope that the kids had a blast!  It took a village to get this event off the ground. Thank you for your support!  Have a safe and Happy Halloween this week.
