SCHOOL NEWS
A MESSAGE FROM MRS. JACKSON
We all really enjoyed the snow this week and it didn’t stop the children from going outside to play.  Please make sure to dress them appropriately for the cold as we do our best to get them outside every day.  I spent time in first grade this week and was very impressed with their counting on skills.  They have made such progress since September.  We are looking forward to next week’s 5th grade concert and can’t wait to enjoy this as a school community during the day and with families in the evening.

 5th Grade Leads the Way this Holiday Season….
The Holiday Season is fast approaching. 5th Grade will join our Veterans from the American Legion Post #143 in supporting the Fairfield Police Department Toy Drive. Please consider donating one unwrapped toy now until December 12th to help a neighboring child in need. A collection box is located outside the office. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. – The Fifth Grade Team


BRAND NEW SCHOOL WEBSITE
