Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,
he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. II Corinthians 12:9

Picture Day

Picture Day is scheduled for Thursday, October 27. Students are not required to wear their uniforms that day, but clothing needs to reflect the standards of the school. Kindergarten students do not usually have school on Thursdays, but we are planning to have kindergarten on Thursday, October 27. We will not have class for them on Friday, October 28.

Enclosed is an order form from the photographer. Fill out a separate form for each child, along with the payment. If you have more than one child, please do not combine payments. Each order envelope should contain payment for the given child.

The photographer will need the order form and payment on picture day, so please make sure your child brings this in to school on or before October 27.

Health Room Emergency Cards

This is a reminder to those who have not yet returned the health room emergency forms for your child. Please take time to fill them out and send them with your child to the school office. These forms contain important information that we need when your child is sick or has an emergency.

Annual FCS Breakfast

An all-you-can-eat fund-raiser breakfast is planned for Saturday, November 5, from 6:00-10:30am at the school. Invite your relatives, friends, and neighbors for a delicious, fun way to start your Saturday.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, November 7-8. Please keep one of these afternoons or evenings open so you will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher and discuss how things are going.

In a few weeks, you will receive a call from the office to schedule your conference.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship
We look forward to meeting all the parents at our Parent-Teacher Fellowship on Tuesday, October 4th at 7:30pm. We will be holding this event on the second floor of the school.

Lost and Found

All lunch boxes, shoes, and sweaters that have been found in the school and gym are being kept in the office. If you are missing something, please come to the office and claim it. At the end of every quarter, we will display these items. If they remain unclaimed, we will take them to a clothing distribution center.

Staff Feature

Hello, my name is Miss Anna. I was home schooled for 13 years, and I graduated in 2010. I am the fourth child out of eight. I live in Myerstown, PA. I have lived on a farm all my life. Some things that I really enjoy are working on our dairy farm, playing volleyball, reading, and spending time with friends.

For the last two years, I worked at Patches Family Creamery. It is a small store and ice cream shop. I have also worked the last few years for my dad on our farm. I milked cows, drove tractor, fixed things, ran errands, or did anything else that needed to be done.

Although I did not always enjoy my years as a student, I really enjoy being a teacher at Fairview. I guess I could be called a floater. I help out in kindergarten, first grade, LC4, and LC5. I also help with LC2′s art class and LC4′s gym class. I have really enjoyed getting to know the many students I work with.

I am excited to see what this year holds. I am looking forward to getting to know the students and seeing what God will show and teach me.

FCS Volleyball Tournament

On October 28 & 29,the Fairview Falcons volleyball team will be hosting a tournament in the FCS gymnasium. We are looking forward to exciting competition from Central, Mt. View, Ephrata, and Gospel Haven. There will be a concession stand to help support the team. All are invited to come, watch, and cheer! -Katie Martin (Junior)
