The first day of school at Fairfield proved to be an “Amazing” one. Students and families flooded the front doors early this morning in anticipation of seeing their classroom, meeting or seeing their teacher, enjoying breakfast, and reconnecting with friends. I want to especially welcome our new kindergarten students and our new to Fairfield students. We have a lot of new faces that started their day a little timid but ended their day strong. For any new families to Fairfield, please know my door is open if you have any questions. Below are some important dates for you to put on your calendar.

Our annual Fairfield Jog-A-Thon was a hit, in more ways than one. On a day that forecasted rain all day, the sprinkles stopped in time to get through all but two grade levels. Students had fun through it all and ran their laps for 30 minutes. Special guests included Freddy Falcon, who also ran with students, and the Monster Stereo from Brad’s Car Tunes. PTO was also able to furnish all students with a new Fairfield T-Shirt. Pledges and donations are due! If your child hasn’t turned in collections, it’s not too late! Thank you for all of your help and support for Fairfield.
Nuestro anual Fairfield Jog-A-Thon fue un éxito, en más de una forma. En un día que pronosticó la lluvia todo el día, las rociadas se detuvieron a tiempo para superar todos los niveles, excepto dos. Los estudiantes se divirtieron a través de todo y corrieron sus vueltas durante 30 minutos. Los invitados especiales incluyeron a Freddy Falcon, que también funcionó con los estudiantes, y la estereofonia del monstruo de los tunes del coche de Brad. PTO también fue capaz de proporcionar a todos los estudiantes con una nueva camiseta de Fairfield. ¡Las promesas y las donaciones son debidas! ¡Si su hijo no ha entregado colecciones, no es demasiado tarde! Gracias por toda su ayuda y apoyo para Fairfield
