Re-enrollment
The time to re-enroll students at FCS is fast approaching. Re-enrollment forms will be sent home at the end of January. We will need the forms returned as soon as possible. You will need to be current with your balance to re-enroll.
If you have a child entering kindergarten next fall, please call the office by January 19.

Basketball Games
Everyone is invited to come and support the Fairview Falcons basketball team. Check out the January calendar for game details.

Parent-Teacher Conferences
You will be receiving an email or a call from the office the second week of January to schedule your conference. We will be running these from 7:00 am through 8:30 pm on Monday, January 15. We would like to have all parents included in this meeting with your child’s teacher.

Trash-A-Thon
Thanks so much for all your hard work in the trash-a-thon. We were able to raise $17,821. This will greatly aid the student activity fund and help to keep your tuition down. We are already looking forward to next year. Plan to be a part of it!

Scrip Program
A big thank you to everyone who purchased gift cards for Christmas and throughout the rest of the year. You helped the school earn over $585 this year!

      But when the fulness of the time was come,

      God sent forth his Son, made of a woman,

            made under the law,

      To redeem them that were under the law,

            that we might receive the adoption of sons.

      And because ye are sons,

      God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son

            into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
