Hello Fairfax Families,
Spring is here and summer break is near! As our Ohio State Testing period comes to a close, please make sure your student is receiving adequate rest and nutrition. American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that children ages 6 to 12 receive 9-12 hours of sleep each night. Breakfast begins each day at 8:20 and is free to all students. Encourage your child to have breakfast each morning. Please do not allow your child to arrive to school before this time.
Please remember that dogs are not allowed on the playground during arrival and dismissal.
In the final six weeks of school, I would like to take this time to remind parents of the Tiger Expectations dress code. All clothing must be clean, of appropriate size and fit neatly. Any clothing that is too tight, revealing or saggy is not permitted. Students are encouraged to wear footwear that is “closed toe” and/or is secured to the back of the foot. No flip-flops please.
The IB Learner Profile for April: Thinker and for May: Risk-taker & Balanced. Illuminate ways in which your child is being a thinker, risk-taker, or balanced to them. Fairfax will have our IB PYP (International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme) Consultation visit on Wednesday, April 26 and Thursday, April 27. During this visit our consultant will observe classrooms, talk with our IB Leadership Team (which includes parents) and meet with the IB coordinator and principal. We are excited to receive feedback to ensure that we are ready for our official visit next school year!
The district and its community partners are offering many exciting camps, programs, and classes for all ages and interests this summer. Please visit the district’s website to register for summer programming.
PTA Meeting & Art Show, April 19, 6:00-8:00pm
April PAWs Assembly is scheduled for April 27, 2:00-2:30
Teacher Appreciation Week, May 1-5
End-Of-Year Picnic, Monday, May 22, 6:00-8:00pm

Conscious Discipline is still having a positive impact on our students. Ask your child to teach you a breathing technique or the family can create one together!
I look forward to an enjoyable close to our 2016-17 school year.
Your Partner in Education,
Ms. Quatrice James
