Families! Thank you for an outstanding school year. It has been such a privilege working with your kids and seeing them accomplish great things throughout the school year. Our 5th grade departure ceremony was very special. Kids shared special thoughts of gratitude that were moving and very genuine. I have great confidence in the next step of their educational journey.
I am proud to say our teachers and students finished the year strong, and I only anticipate another exciting school year ahead!

Public Meeting On New School Design
It’s time to design a new Fairfield and we need your input. The first of three public “Live Design” sessions is Tuesday May 7th at 6:00
p.m. here at Fairfield. The Design Team from Soderstrom Architects will engage the Fairfield neighborhood community in a discussion about what we want in our new school facilities. The Design Team will present its initial design studies regarding the location of the new Fairfield. They will also talk about daylighting, location of play areas, parking and site access issues.This will be a preliminary meeting to listen to the neighborhood before beginning the actual design of the buildings. We want these buildings to be part of the community both in function and design, so your input and involvement in the design process is needed from the outset. Join us on Tuesday May 7th for an exciting evening of creative sharing.
