Jog-a-Thon PreparaciónNuestro jog-a-thon inicio fue viernes. El jog-a-thon de este año ayudará a proveer más tecnología, libros para nuestra biblioteca, equipos de recreo y apoyo para programas especiales como el jardín escolar y excursiones. Nuestro jog-a-thon es el viernes, 5 de mayo. Si usted puede estar interesado en ayudar para el evento, por favor informe al maestro de su hijo.

La reunión del equipo de Liderazgo Familiar de la semana pasada nos ayudó a comprender cómo podemos utilizar mejor los puntos fuertes de nuestras familias y continuar construyendo nuestra comunidad de Fairfield. El equipo está trabajando en una encuesta que llegará a casa en mayo. Más información vendrá. Si usted tiene alguna idea en qué información puede ir a una encuesta para las familias, por favor hágamelo saber. Nos reuniremos de nuevo a finales de mayo. Espero que muchos más de ustedes puedan asistir.

Smarter Balanced Testing Is Here
Families – the SBAC state test window has opened at Fairfield. Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will be testing for the next 8 weeks. If you know it is your child’s week to test you can best support them by doing the following:
- Encourage them – let them know they can do their best by giving their best effort
- Make sure they get some rest – have a designated bed time that gives them ample rest
- Encourage them to make sure to eat breakfast in the morning
Kids have been working so hard all year. We know that the efforts of their hard work will show.
Play Works Recess Week
So many families have volunteered for this week and we are so appreciative!! This week we are re-teaching students rules for popular playground games such as – SWITCH, WALL BALL, FOUR-SQUARE, BASKETBALL BUMP, JUMP ROPE, and our Play Works game of the week which looks like an organized game of TAG. If you are interested in helping out for a chunk of time between 9:45 and 12:45, please let me know.
The idea behind Play Works is to encourage students to participate in an organized game, to practice sportsmanship, to encourage each other, and to give all students an opportunity to feel included. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out!

Student Safety Alert
We are sharing the following information at the recommendation of Eugene Police.
Around 12:30 today, Tuesday April 4th, a man in a white SUV allegedly tried to kidnap a young woman who was on foot near Everyone’s Market on Echo Hollow Road.
The young woman – who is not a student – managed to escape and is safe and unharmed, but police want everyone to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for a white GMC Yukon with tinted windows.
Again, no one was harmed but students are asked to be especially aware of their surroundings.
