This donation benefits the Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation, which helps to fill the free snack cart for families caring for a child with cancer or other life-threatening illness at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Children’s Hospital at Sinai in Baltimore.

We hope to work together with you in in the future. Again, thank you very much!

Fairview Fanfare - November 8, Interim Assistant Principal Announcement

GovDelivery 2 months 1 week ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Falcon Fanfare November 8, 2019 Interim Assistant Principal Announcement

Dear Fairview Community,

Mr. Tim Paper, Assistant Principal, is currently on leave. During his absence, we have secured Mrs. Bunny Lancaster as Interim Assistant Principal.

Mrs. Lancaster was the Principal of Fairview from 2006-2013. She was a significant champion of the start of the Local Level IV Program. Since retiring from FCPS in 2013, Mrs. Lancaster  moved to Loudon County to spend more time with her grandchildren. She’s been able to pursue her love of antiquing, reading, and baking. Bunny enjoys the abundance of fresh picked fruit in her new location, and she is known to create wonderful jams and jellies.

Mrs. Lancaster stays connected to students and instruction through interim administrative positions in Fairfax County as well as Loudon County. I am excited for her to return to Fairview to be a part of our continued successes.  

We will welcome Mrs. Lancaster on Monday, November 11.

Sincerely,

Sara  Van Aalst

Principal

Beginning on October 21, FCPS will be asking all families to fill out a Student-Parent Survey for Federal Impact Aid.

Digital Citizenship Week October 21-25, 2019 

This year’s theme is Media Balance and Well-Being: Developing a Healthy Relationship with Your Technology. Our school is celebrating Digital Citizenship Week with spirit days and activities focused on developing healthy habits around technology use. Students will bring home a choice board to select at least one activity a day that matches the daily theme.  Participation is voluntary.  Below you’ll find the schedule of spirit days along with resources and suggested activities to help support healthy habits at home too. 

Spirit Days for Next Week
  • Monday: Hat Day - Put on your thinking cap and reflect on your media use and habits.
  • Tuesday: Active Wear - Exercise your healthy tech habits.
  • Wednesday: Dress as your Muse - Dress up as your favorite artist, musician, author, inventor, actor/actress, scientist, etc. and focus on how you can use technology to create original works.
  • Thursday: Dress in Your Best - Wear your best or most professional clothing and focus on using high-quality.
  • Friday: “Lei” Off the Tech - wear Hawaiian clothing and take a break from screens to connect more in person.
Resources and Activities for Home

Monday: Reflect on your relationship with technology and begin to think of ways to make some healthy adjustments. 

Tuesday: Exercise healthy tech practices such as managing notification settings and turning off screens an hour before bedtime. Try some of these ideas:

  • Make phone-free zones in your home.
  • Promote better sleep by disconnecting from screens at least one hour before bedtime and charging your phone outside of the bedroom.

Wednesday: Think about how technology can be used to create original works.  Try this idea:

  • Experiment with computer coding at home. Code.org has activities that teach students to use coding to design games, apps, drawings, and websites.

Thursday: Think about the media your family consumes and select high quality, age-appropriate resources:

  • Discuss these 5 questions with your family when you consume media together, including books, movies, and news articles.

Friday: Practice media balance by taking a break from screens to engage in real-world experiences and quality time:

Hurricane Dorian: Toothbrush Collection

As the residents of the Bahamas start to rebuild their lives after the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian, Fairview Elementary would like to help support the Bahamians. Paddy Stevenson, a student in Mrs. Stockwell’s 5th Grade class, is leading the campaign to collect 781 toothbrushes (to match the number of students enrolled at Fairview) to send to the Bahamas. Please help Paddy in his campaign by sending your child(ren) to school with a toothbrush to donate. There will be four boxes located on tables throughout the school for students to place the donated toothbrushes (outside the health room, the POD, recess doors and top of the stairs).  Thank you in advance for your donations!

If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Schires at 703-503-3713 or epschires@fcps.edu.
