Fairhill (in-person) Tours

We are so excited to welcome all of our Tigers back to the building this year! We know it has been awhile (if ever) since some students have been in the building so we are offering group tours to walk around the building with a staff member to help students get re-acclimated to the building. This is strictly a tour of the building to see the main entrance, library, cafeteria, gym, art room, music rooms and all common spaces. Classrooms will not be set up yet so students will be unable to see their classrooms.

The intention of these tours is to support students who spent the past school year in a virtual setting and have been away from Fairhill for a long time. These tours are for rising 1st-6th grade students only and will only last about 15 minutes. Another plan is in the works for our rising Kindergarten tigers so be on the lookout for details coming soon! 

When signing up, please put student name and grade in the comment section! (One slot per family, please.)

Please sign up for a slot by clicking here

Please reach out to Mrs. Korb if you have any specific questions!

If the survey is not completed and returned, the student will not be added to a bus route at the beginning of the school year.

During the school year, changes to the intent form can be made with your school's SIS operator if the need for transportation changes or the survey is not returned by August 4, 2021. It may take up to five days to update transportation schedules.

To Our Dearest Fairhill Community, 

We hope that everyone has been able to relax (at least a little) and enjoy the ease of students not being in school and online for school! The past year and a half has certainly been remarkable and we know that it has taken a toll on our families and overall community. We can't wait to have a fantastic kick off to our in-person school year!! 

We are proud to share that we have over 100 Fairhill students attending summer programs in July.  We have Bridge to Kindergarten, SOAR, and Young Scholars classes. We are all wearing masks when the students are here and are anticipating this to be the same once the school year starts for students on August 23rd. (More information will be shared soon.)

The FCPS focus for 2021-2022 is relationships, connections and trust.  These three pillars form a strong foundation to support the social-emotional health of students, parents, and staff as we return to school.  It is our goal that each and every child feel safe, secure, and cared for from day #1, August 23rd. 

We will be hosting our Back to School Bash on August 19th as well as our Back to School Bus Tour where staff will be coming to a neighborhood near you! Be on the lookout for more information about these fun events in the coming weeks. 

As always, we are a team and we are so excited to welcome everyone back to Fairhill soon. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns or compliments you may have. 

Sincerely, 

Tim Stanley           &         Courtney Korb

Interim Principal                Assistant Principal

Dear Fairhill Family,

This unpredictable and unprecedented school year has come to a close. We are so proud of our tigers and all that they have done during a global pandemic. Our staff is simply the best and showed up every day for our community. Please take the summer to read and enjoy your family time.

For those of you leaving Fairhill for Luther Jackson Middle School and other elementary schools know that you are loved and will always be a tiger.

It has been a privilege to partner with Fairhill parents, staff members, and tigers during my time as principal. I offer my sincere wishes for the continued success of Fairhill Elementary and I leave knowing that amazing things will continue to occur. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be apart of such a dynamic school community. Fairhill is and will continue to be a place for joy!

Warmly,

Mrs. Hunstad

If you are interested in joining the fun run committee or would like to learn more before committing your time, please join us for our preliminary planning meeting.  Joining the first discussion does not obligate you to participate further.  Details and dates for the preliminary planning meeting will be forthcoming.  Interested?  Please add your name to this signup genius and we will be in touch. 

  • Participate in a committee to coordinate what will potentially be the           biggest fundraiser of the year.
  • Pick a fundraising platform (can use the platform from our last fun run)
  • Design the fitness week activities.
  • Coordinate incentives.
  • Work with the school to schedule and roll out the event.

The Fairhill PTA does not let a pandemic stand in our way!  Even though we weren't able to offer all of the fun programs that we normally sponsor, we are still here and are gearing up for next year.  It is time to fill the open Board and Comittee Lead positions for the 2021-2022 school year. This year, more than ever, we are looking forward to fun times ahead.  We may not yet know what we will be allowed to do next school year, but we are hopeful that we will be able to offer at least a version of our usual programs and events.  After a year away, we will start with a clean slate and be in need of creative, new ideas!  Serving on the board of the PTA is a wonderful way to feel connected to our school and community.  Won't that connection feel especially powerful after the last year of covid restrictions?

Dear Fairhill Families,

This week (May 3-7) is Staff Appreciation Week.  Below you will find a reminder of the plan.  Thank you to all of the families who contributed to the goodie bags!  We were overwhelmed by your generosity.

Here is our plan:

1.  The PTA will sponsor a lunch for staff that they can pick up at school.  

2.  The PTA will assemble a goodie bag of treats for each staff member.  We will attach little notes to each of the items in the goodie bag to brighten their day.  

3.  We also have a schedule of fun ways that you and your students can virtually thank our staff.

Monday:  Email a photo of your student holding a homemade sign or picture to your favorite teachers/staff.

Tuesday: Email a funny joke to your favorite teachers/staff.

Wednesday:  Parents, send an email of thanks to your favorite teachers/staff.

Thursday: Enter your favorite teachers in the Virginia Lottery Thank a teacher program.  Students can send teachers an e-card through the program and teachers can enter to win a Virginia vacation and $5,000 for our school.  To participate, click here  

Friday:  Have your student draw a picture of a flower and email a photo of it to your teacher.

For a flyer of the events, please click here.  
(Flyer design credit goes to a Fairhill student, flyer created by FroggyTiger50)

For a list of staff email addresses, click here

 

Families are also welcome to send their own gift to a favorite teacher.  Looking for an idea?  How about a Scholastic gift card?  Building up and updating a classroom library can be expensive.  Click here to access the Scholastic gift card store.

For in-building learners, requested books (called HOLDS) will be delivered to classrooms on either Tuesday or Thursday.

The week of May 3-7 is Staff Appreciation Week.  Normally, the PTA and our Principals would have a fabulous week of treats planned for the staff at Fairhill.  Due to covid restrictions, we have revised the plan.  Although we are not able to celebrate the Fairhill staff in person, we have come up with pandemic-friendly ways to thank them. 

Here is our plan:

1.  The PTA will sponsor a lunch for staff that they can pick up at school.  

2.  The PTA will assemble a goodie bag of treats for each staff member.  We will attach little notes to each of the items in the goodie bag to brighten their day.  

We kindly request that families donate the items for the goodie bags.  We have created a sign up genius found here where you can sign up to purchase an item or donate money that the PTA will use to purchase treats for the bags.  All contributions should be delivered to the Fairhill office by Thursday, April 29.  

This year, we are going to try something new to help make it as easy as possible to contribute.  In the sign up genius, you will find a link to an Amazon wishlist.  You may purchase from the wishlist and have your contribution sent directly to the school. Please enter your Amazon order on the sign up genius so that we can track quantities.  Also, please ensure that your order will be delivered by Thursday, April 29.  

3.  We also have a schedule of fun ways that you and your students can virtually thank our staff.

Monday:  Email a photo of your student holding a homemade sign or picture to your favorite teachers/staff.

Tuesday: Email a funny joke to your favorite teachers/staff.

Wednesday:  Parents, send an email of thanks to your favorite teachers/staff.

Thursday: Enter your favorite teachers in the Virginia Lottery Thank a teacher program.  Students can send teachers an e-card through the program and teachers can enter to win a Virginia vacation and $5,000 for our school.  To participate, click here  

Friday:  Have your student draw a picture of a flower and email a photo of it to your teacher.

For a flyer of the events, please click here.   (Flyer design credit goes to a Fairhill student, flyer created by FroggyTiger50)

 

Families are also welcome to send their own gift to a favorite teacher.  Looking for an idea?  How about a Scholastic gift card?  Building up and updating a classroom library can be expensive.  Click here to access the Scholastic gift card store.

 

Stay healthy and safe!

6th Grade Graduation Celebration

It's time to start planning the 6th grade graduation celebration.  It may take some creativity this year, but our 6th graders deserve a fun send off!  If you are interested in helping, please contact Barbara Hayes at barbannhayes@gmail.com

The Fairhill PTA does not let a pandemic stand in our way!  Even though we weren't able to offer all of the fun programs that we normally sponsor, we are still here and are gearing up for next year.  It is time to fill the open Board and Comittee Lead positions for the 2021-2022 school year. This year, more than ever, we are looking forward to fun times ahead.  We may not yet know what we will be allowed to do next school year, but we are hopeful that we will be able to offer at least a version of our usual programs and events.  After a year away, we will start with a clean slate and be in need of creative, new ideas!  Serving on the board of the PTA is a wonderful way to feel connected to our school and community.  Won't that connection feel especially powerful after the last year of covid restrictions?

6th Grade Graduation Celebration

It's time to start planning the 6th grade graduation celebration.  It may take some creativity this year, but our 6th graders deserve a fun send off!  If you are interested in helping, please contact Barbara Hayes at barbannhayes@gmail.com

Dear Fairhill Families,

 

The Fairhill PTA does not let a pandemic stand in our way!  Even though we weren't able to offer all of the fun programs that we normally sponsor, we are still here and are gearing up for next year.  It is time to fill the open Board and Comittee Lead positions for the 2021-2022 school year. This year, more than ever, we are looking forward to fun times ahead.  We may not yet know what we will be allowed to do next school year, but we are hopeful that we will be able to offer at least a version of our usual programs and events.  After a year away, we will start with a clean slate and be in need of creative, new ideas!  Serving on the board of the PTA is a wonderful way to feel connected to our school and community.  Won't that connection feel especially powerful after the last year of covid restrictions?   

The PTA is responsible for many of the fun events that help make Fairhill a community, not just a school.  For example, the PTA runs the following: Fall Festival Before and After School Enrichment Programs School supply kits program Bingo Night Fairhill Family Fun Day The Room Parent program Square One Art Faihill Family Nights Out Family Heritage Night Staff Appreciation Week

If you are worried that you will need help or training, we have you covered.  Previous board members will be available to train and transition the responsibilities.  The board works as a team and we are always available to help new members. Time commitments vary by role. The PTA board and its members meet once a month for a general meeting  During a normal school year, these meetings are held in the library, average 1.5 hours and childcare is provided.  Due to covid, this year's meeting were held virtually and lasted 20-30 minutes. The Board may be required to follow up on action items, vote on requests via email throughout the month or attend sub committee meetings (for example, Family Fun Day planning) as needed.  When we have a big event such as the Fall Festival, we all volunteer as much time as we can to make the event run smoothly.

If we can't fill critical board positions (marked in yellow), we will lose our chapter and all of the PTA sponsored events.  Please click HERE for a description of current Board and Committee Lead positions.  For more detail, please contact president@fairhillpta.org.
