July 22, 2020

Dear Fairview Families,

As announced by Dr. Brabrand last night, we will begin online school for all students on Tuesday, September 8. The Fairview Staff is already engaged in planning to ensure a dynamic and positive start to the new school year. Here are some facts we know about the virtual model:

  • Online learning provides four days (Tuesday through Friday) of live, face-to-face instruction with teachers. 
  • The elementary day will consist of additional small group instruction, intervention supports, and independent learning activities assigned to students.   
  • Student work will be graded and attendance is required. 
  • Mondays will remain a teacher planning day.

The Fairview Staff continues to have our students’ needs at the forefront of our thinking. We miss our students, and we are excited to reconnect with your families in the coming weeks. We will remain in touch as additional details about our return to learning emerge.

Sincerely,

Sara Van Aalst

Principal

July 15, 2020

Dear Fairview Families,

I hope you are doing well and staying safe.  Today, Wednesday, July 15th, 2020, is the deadline to make your selection for your child's enrollment for this school year. As a reminder, the option you choose is a year-long commitment.

For additional information please visit the FCPS Return to School FAQs for Families.

Here are the options:

  • If you choose the online option, our teachers will provide instruction Tuesday – Friday, and we will provide independent assignments for Mondays. Unlike during the crisis teaching last spring, attendance will be mandatory, and teachers will grade assignments as they do when we are in person. You can see more details here.
  • If you choose the in-person option, students will be in class with teachers 2 days per week, and we will provide independent assignments for the other days. You can see details about the plan for social distancing and other details here
    • Please note, that if no selection is made, the default will be to place your child in the in-person option for the 2020-2021 school year.

To help clarify further: Synchronous learning is ‘live’ with a teacher while Asynchronous learning is independent and through assigned lessons, videos, and recordings.

I know this feels like a daunting decision for many. I encourage you to consider what is best for your family and what will support your child’s needs. I will continue to keep you updated as I receive additional and updated information about next steps. We remain FAIRVIEW STRONG.

Sincerely,

Sara Van Aalst

Principal

July 1, 2020 Once a Falcon, Always a Falcon

Fairview Familes, 

Last night I shared with the Fairview staff that Mr. Tim Paper, our Assistant Principal, is moving to another school location for the 2020-2021 school year.

Mr. Paper became a Fairview Falcon in 2016. During his time here, he was instrumental in leading the implementation of the Positivity Project, coordinating the Positive Behavior Approach committee’s work to revitalize the school-wide expectations and coordinating assessment practices including the launch of the Universal Screener.  Mr. Paper’s caring and trusting relationships with staff, students, and families guide his work. From the development of the master schedule to attending after-school PTA events, Mr. Paper is always ready and willing to help others be successful.

I know I speak for us all when I say he will be greatly missed at Fairview.  We wish him all the best.

Sincerely,

Sara Van Aalst

Principal

June 10, 2020

Dear Families,

As we conclude the 2019-2020 school year tomorrow with our final day of synchronous learning, we are reminded of our community’s strength, perseverance, and care. This was a school year like none other. We appreciate the school community supporting the Fairview staff during a year of change, challenge, and uncertainties. We are FAIRVIEW STRONG!

The Fairview Staff recognizes that our nation continues to grapple with racism and hate as we close this school year. The staff is committed to equity, social justice, diversity, and inclusion. We encourage everyone to take the time to reflect, listen, and learn together. To our Black and African American students, staff, and families, we echo Dr. Brabrand’s words in saying, “We see you, we believe in you, and we stand with you.”

Tomorrow is a special day at Fairview as we honor and celebrate the Fairview Class of 2020. As soaring Falcons, they have exemplified resiliency, flexibility, compassion and excellence. We wish them well as they transition into seventh grade. Their Fairview family will continue to be their champion in the years to come. We are excited about their future as individuals and as a class.

We wish you well as summer begins, and we will remain in touch as we launch summer learning and plan for the new year.

Sincerely,

Sara Van Aalst

Principal

Congratulations, Mrs. Moser!

 

Mrs. Pamela Moser is retiring this year after a beautiful career with Fairview.  She served as a classroom teacher, a Level IV teacher, the Instructional Coach, and the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher.  More than that, she served us as a community connection, a student supporter, and a listening ear. Many of her students recognized her as a “princess,” someone who guided their learning with a royal respect for each of them within their classroom kingdom.   Her cheerful demeanor lit the room and we will all miss her joyful spirit. Best wishes, Mrs. Moser, as you continue your royal venture into retirement.

Congratulations Class of 2020!

Tomorrow we will promote our sixth grade students to seventh grade. We are so proud of the Class of 2020. We wish them well in their next adventure.

Class of 2020, you will forever be SOARING FALCONS.

Best wishes.

Student Access to i-Ready Learning Materials

Here is a video from Mr. Flint, School Based Technology Specialist, to help you access this additional resource: https://safeyoutube.net/w/oUzK

iReady instruction is available for use by K-6 elementary school students during June and July of 2020. Lessons will be curated based on the student’s most recent test score in reading or mathematics during the fall or winter test windows. This is being turned on to provide optional individual practice to students.  

If a student has not completed an assessment, lessons have been curated with current grade level content and foundational skills. Access to iReady will be turned off August 1, 2020.

Fairview Fanfare - June 3

June 3, 2020

Dear Fairview Families,

Our country is experiencing deep pain and turmoil. This is a time of change, and the Fairview staff will continue to play an important role in this evolution. As FCPS Superintendent, Dr. Brabrand shared, “Racism and hate have no place in FCPS. FCPS is a place where we strive for love, inclusiveness, and compassion for all while providing hope for the future.”  

At Fairview, we will continue to challenge our norms, practices and structures. We will continue to listen to each other’s stories, to hear the perspectives of our students and their families, and to build relationships that embrace and celebrate our individuality and diversity. We are committed to teaching our young students how to be compassionate and brave individuals who respect and honor differences. We will foster open hearts and open minds.

Our Fairview community is on my heart and mind today and always. If there is anything our school staff, including our counselors, can do to support you or your child, please let me know.  If there’s any insight that you wish to share with me so that Fairview can continue to be an accepting, empowering, and fair place for you and your child, I hope that you will reach out to me.

Together, we will see a better tomorrow. We are FAIRVIEW STRONG.

 

Sincerely,

Sara Van Aalst

Principal

How will the curbside pickup be organized? Please display the first and last name of your student(s) clearly in your front window. Access the school parking lot from Burke Centre Parkway only and follow the directions of staff. We ask that you remain in your vehicle at all times. Staff will deliver items to your car.

2020-2021 Class Placement Input

Planning is beginning for the 2020-2021 school year! To assist in this process, we would like to give you the opportunity to provide some information about your child.

Your child’s current teachers (upcoming teachers for rising Kindergartners) work as a grade level team in collaboration with specialists to prepare class assignments for the next school year.  They will review this form and consider the information relevant to the class assignment.  Fairview's staff is remarkable!  Please do not request a specific teacher.

Please complete the form and submit by Wednesday, May 13!
Submit one form per student attending Fairview Elementary.
