Greetings Fairmeadow Community,

The final week of school is upon us, and the anticipation and excitement is almost as electric as the first week of school! This week we celebrate the incredible accomplishments of each and every one of our Fairmeadow firebirds as they prepare to promote to the next grade level.  I am especially proud of our students for the social and academic progress they’ve achieved this year, and I have the utmost confidence for all they will achieve next year and beyond!

Two important events this week include our annual Field Day on Thursday and 5th Grade Promotion on Friday.  On Thursday morning, all students head outside to participate in a variety of field games and physical activities.  K-2 students participate from 8:30 to 10 am and 3-5 students participate from 10:30-11:50 am.  Please remember to send your child to school with a water bottle and a hat/sunscreen on Thursday to stay hydrated and sun-safe!  On Friday morning, we gather on the field for the 5thGrade Promotion Ceremony from 9-10 am.  It promises to be a week full of activity, celebration and commemoration!

For returning families, please mark your calendars for the following welcome back activities scheduled to start the 2018/19 school year:

This Friday I will wish my final fond farewell to our Fairmeadow Firebirds as they depart for summer vacation.  It has been an incredible honor to serve this community as principal for the past four years, and I will cherish the many experiences we’ve shared along the way.  This community is unique in your unyielding support of your school, your innovative and inspired ideas, and your unparalleled diversity of experience, language, and culture.  I have learned something new every day in our work together, and from my work with your children, and for that I am exceedingly grateful.

Cheer, cheer for Fairmeadow School!

Grant Althouse, Principal
