October Newsletter

Picture Day
Picture day is scheduled for Thursday, October 24. 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 24. We will not have class for them on Friday, October 25.

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 24.

Vacation Policy
We are asking for your help in what has become a small problem here at FCS.  A few families a year are taking a week for vacation during the school term.  We think vacation is a good thing, but it does present some extra challenges to our staff.  We are asking you to consider taking your vacation over the summer.  We realize, in some cases, that is not possible.  What is frequently occurring - especially in high school – is that the students return and are unable to properly catch up in their work. To remedy the situation, the administration is asking the teachers to tutor the students after school for an hour or two each night until they are caught up.  This should only have to be done for high school math, science, and other select subjects.  A $25 per hour charge will be added to the next billing.  This will help us fairly reimburse the teachers for their after-school work.  Thanks for your cooperation in this important matter.  If you have any questions, feel free to call Mr. Marcus.

FCS Breakfast
An all-you-can-eat fundraiser breakfast is planned for Saturday, October 26, from 6:00-10:30 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 7, at 7:30 pm. This event will take place on the third floor at school.

Volleyball Tournament
The tournament will be held November 1 and 2 in the FCS gym. Come and cheer on the Lady Fairview Falcons. It should be an exciting day 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 (830 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.
