Fairview Christian School

October 2016 Newsletter

Picture Day

Picture day is scheduled for Thursday, October 20. Students are not required to wear their uniforms that day, but clothing must reflect the standards of the school.

Kindergarten students do not usually have school on Thursday, but we are planning to have kindergarten on Thursday, October 20. We will not have class for them on Friday, October 21.

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 20.

FCS Breakfast

An all-you-can-eat breakfast fundraiser is planned for Saturday, November 12, from 6:30-10:30 at the school. Costs are covered by your donations. Invite your relatives, friends, and neighbors for a delicious, fun way to start your Saturday.

Parent-Teacher Fellowship

We look forward to meeting all the parents at our parent-teacher fellowship on Monday, October 10, at 7:30 pm. This event will take place on the third floor at school.

Volleyball Tournament

The tournament will be held November 4 and 5 in the FCS gym. Come and cheer on the Lady Fairview Falcons. It should be an exciting weekend of volleyball competition.

School Weather Cancellations

As winter weather draws near, we would like to remind you of several ways you can find out if there is a delayed opening, early closing, or school cancellation. Tune in to radio stations WDAC (94.5 FM) or WEEU (830Call Nowts at our parent-teacher fellowship on mondrtant information that we need when your child I AM). You may also want to go to wfmz.com and click on the school closings link. If we have a cancellation, we will send out a One Call Now message around 6:00 am.

Trash-a-Thon

We are eagerly anticipating this event on October 19.  The students are lining up sponsors as we speak. We could still use some adult chaperones to help. All money collected can be brought to the office immediately.  We will give your child credit for his/her hard work.

Health Room Emergency Cards

If you have not handed the emergency cards in yet, please do ASAP!
