The year has gotten off to a great start! Our students were welcomed on
Tuesday, August 5th by teachers and staff who were excited to see familiar faces as well as many new students. Getting ready for this day took a lot of planning and preparation by all of the teachers and staff. Open House was held on Monday, August 4th. Students were introduced to their teachers, and parents received information about school policies and expectations for the students.
Parents, there has been an important change in our daily routine! Student drop-off will begin at 7:15 a.m. this year. No teachers will be on duty before then, so please do not drop your child off early. The school day will START at 7:50 a.m. All students must be dropped off for school in the drop-off line by that time. If a child arrives at school after 7:50 a.m., the parent must walk their child in the front door of the office before going to class.
We are still collecting box tops this year for our school. The Box Tops for Education program has helped America’s schools raise over $445 million since 1996. All year long we will collect Box Tops, found on thousands of products ranging from cereal to office supplies. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. When students, families, schools and communities work together to collect these and send them in, we can raise money quickly! Our goal this year is 7,000 Box Tops, and they can be dropped off at Fair Elementary. Thank you for your help in reaching our goal!
Fair Elementary would like to give a special thanks to the Winston County Self Help Cooperative for their donation of school bookbags! We would also like to thank Winston Strong for their generous donation of children’s shoes. And finally, we would like to say thank you to a very special student from Nanih Waiya, Jessica Luke, and her mother Betty Luke, for raising $800 to go towards supplies for students affected by the tornado!
