Dear Fairhill Families,
We look forward to seeing you this evening at our Back to School Night! It will begin at 5:30 p.m. with our specialists in the Cafeteria. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet our staff and learn more about the variety of opportunities and programs that are part of your child’s day at Fairhill. After meeting our specialists you will transition to your student's classroom to meet with their teacher. Here you will learn more about the grade level curriculum, leaving a few minutes for questions you may have. If you have more than one student at Fairhill, there will be two sessions to meet classroom teachers. Please make sure you have child care as this event is for adults only.

Our first round of overdue notices are going home today. If your child comes home with one, please help them locate the books to be returned, and talk with them about how they can be a responsible Fairhill citizen by turning library books in on time. Please do not send any money at this time. Email Mrs. Howard with any questions at [email protected]September is Attendance Awareness Month
Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow! The beginning of the school year is the best time to develop strong attendance habits! Students who attend school regularly are more likely to perform well in reading and math, develop strong social and emotional skills, and graduate from high school on time. Help prepare your child for future success. Visit FCPS’ Attendance web page for tips and strategiesFCPS Advanced Academic Program Overview
