Welcome to our Fairwood Family!
At Fairwood, we believe in our motto of learning, caring, and sharing to support our school mission of optimal learning, personal growth and a life-long love of learning for each and every child. We know that when we complete our mission, we will realize our vision of every student, no matter what, being successful in their future college, career, and their community.
One of our school chants is, “What are we here for?” “Learning!” “What do we believe?” “We WILL achieve!” Learning is a life-long journey and every step we take PreK-6th grade here is crucial to students’ success on that journey.
We have high expectations for our students and know that each student has enormous potential to learn and grow. As a team of professional educators, it is our responsibility to ensure that every student is being provided with rigorous learning opportunities and making progress in their learning. Our staff is highly collaborative and works together to continuously learn and improve ourselves so that our students receive a premiere learning experience here at Fairwood.
I am so proud to be a part of such a genuinely caring family at Fairwood elementary! Our code of conduct for Respect, Responsibility, and Safety and our daily school pledge reminds us how important it is to be here for each other. We have an amazing community of staff and families who are truly here to provide the care and support each student needs to be successful.
Our students are community and global citizens, so along with academics, we teach social-emotional skills that support caring, empathy, compassion, collaboration, and problem solving.
We also provide programs like Green Schools that support caring for our environment, Meaningful Jobs around the school, and Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) sponsored programs including art and drama just to name a few.
We have a dedicated PTSA that partners with us in caring for our students by supporting many programs and opportunities for our students.
Two-way communication, partnership, and collaboration are critical to the success of our work. Our staff collaborate and share with each other daily. We teach our students that there are many ways to share that support their success. Our students are more successful when our school shares and builds relationships with families and partners with our community.
To communicate with us, you can follow us on Facebook, use phone, email, or Class Dojo for enrolled families. There are many ways also for families and community to partner with us including joining our PTSA, our School Improvement Team, our Positive Behavior Support Team, volunteering in the school, staying in touch with your child’s teachers, and others. We welcome your involvement!
