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

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!

Seeking Out Parent Support
Families, we are looking for folks interested in volunteering to read with students, shoot baskets with kids in the morning, or provide some pull-out fact practice.

We would love to have some parent input on this team. Our first meeting is this Thursday at 3:00 p.m. If you might be interested in attending, please contact me.
Have a great week!

Buscando apoyo de padres
Familias, estamos buscando gente interesada en el voluntariado para leer con los estudiantes, cestas con los niños en la mañana, o proporcionar algunos pull-out práctica de hecho. Si usted está interesado en proporcionar algún apoyo específico, por favor, conéctese conmigo. Además, contamos con un equipo de maestros que se reunirá una vez al mes para repasar los objetivos de toda la escuela. Nos encantaría tener algún comentario de los padres sobre este equipo. Nuestra primera reunión es este jueves a las 3:00 p.m. Si usted puede estar interesado en asistir, por favor póngase en contacto conmigo.
