Dear Fairhill Families: 

We are off to a great week! Today, our third grade students took their Reading SOL.  This was our last grade level to take the reading test. We are excited about the progress that our students have made so far and are looking forward to sharing all of the great celebrations with our community.  

Looking ahead, we want to be sure you all have our virtual PTA meeting on your calendar for this Thursday, May 12th at 6:30 PM. We plan to share some important dates about the end of the year so you don’t want to miss it! The meeting will be on ZOOM so feel free to join by phone if that is more accessible for you. A link will be sent out on Thursday.  

Looking forward to connecting on Thursday and as always, keep in touch if there is anything we can do to help you.  

All our best,

Ted and Courtney 

Class Placement Family Input

It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is almost here and that we are already planning for the 22-23 school year.  Each year our teachers work together to create classrooms built on the idea that students learn from each other’s strengths. This mindset is a driving force as we build heterogeneous classrooms that support each child’s learning needs.

Again this year, we ask for your input about the learning environment your child will learn best in next year. Please consider providing your input HERE by May 20, 2022, so that the information can be processed before class building. 

Please note that we do not take direct teacher requests. Instead, we ask that you describe the attributes that will support your child best. For example, do they enjoy higher structure, or do they thrive with more independent choices? Do they prefer a quieter learning environment, or do they work best in high-energy environments?

Opportunities to contribute to the Fairhill Community PTA

Are you interested in working with the PTA but don’t know how to begin?  With the end of the school year on the horizon, it is time to find volunteers to fill the open Committee Lead positions for the 2022-2023 PTA.  There are a variety of opportunities to support the Fairhill PTA .  

The PTA is responsible for many of the fun events that help make Fairhill a community, not just a school.  Volunteers like you make it possible for the PTA to offer programs and events such as:

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

Fairhill Family Nights Out

Family Heritage Night

Staff Appreciation Week

Garden Clean Up/Rain Garden/Tree Planting

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, we transitioned to virtual meetings that lasted about 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, we will lose our chapter and all of the PTA sponsored events.  Currently, we are in need of a Secretary in order to keep our PTA chapter going.   Please see the document attached HERE for a description of current Board and Committee Lead positions. For more detail or if you are interested in taking a role, please contact [email protected]

Dear Fairhill Families:

As we navigate through some bumps in the road the last two weeks with COVID in all of Fairfax County, we have also seen a rise in cases here at Fairhill ES. The VDH Dashboard will show four outbreaks [outbreak defined as 3+ cases in one class] for Fairhill. Those specific families have been notified.   We're hoping for a healthier week next week as we move further away from spring break and the weather gets warmer. Here at Fairhill we continue to do all that we can to slow the spread including increased outdoor opportunities, social distancing during lunch, and increased frequency of washing hands. 

Speaking of celebrating, we are having a wonderful time acknowledging our staff and all the hard work they do.  Thanks to our wonderful PTA, yesterday our staff had donuts and coffee.  Today they enjoyed a delectable chocolate fountain. There are plenty of other exciting things to come  throughout the week, including daily recess coverage by parent volunteers!. We are so incredibly grateful for our teachers and staff here at Fairhill and this (our first in person Teacher Appreciation Week in two years)  is a great time to celebrate them.  

Have a great week. 

Ted & Courtney

Dear Fairhill Families

This week has been wonderful at Fairhill! Our students are deep in learning.  Recess has also been a blast with the nicer weather we have been having!

As you all know, Fairhill is incredibly proud of our diversity and we work hard to cultivate and celebrate each student's uniqueness at school. For the month of April we have been celebrating Arab American History Month which has included books, history lessons and exploring each others’ cultures. If you would like to continue this cultural discussion at home, PBS has a great series of videos found HERE that could be an option to help start the conversation. 

Enjoy the week and let us know if there is anything we can do to make Fairhill an even better place for learning and growing. 

All our best,

Ted & Courtney

On the school news this week we introduced the character trait of appreciation and we invite you to ask your child what they appreciate most about their Fairhill experience. It might be a friend, a teacher, or even a favorite part of the playground. 

This Thursday we have a PTA meeting at 6:30PM on ZOOM (link will be sent out on Thursday). We hope to see you all there! There will be no town hall this month. 

All our best,

Ted & Courtney

Opportunities to contribute to the Fairhill Community PTA

Are you interested in working with the PTA but don’t know how to begin?  With the end of the school year on the horizon, it is time to find volunteers to fill the open Board and Committee Lead positions for the 2022-2023 PTA.  There are a variety of opportunities to support the Fairhill PTA .  Serving on the Board of the PTA is a wonderful way to feel connected to our school and community.

The PTA is responsible for many of the fun events that help make Fairhill a community, not just a school.  Volunteers like you make it possible for the PTA to offer programs and events such as:

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

Fairhill Family Nights Out

Family Heritage Night

Staff Appreciation Week

Garden Clean Up/Rain Garden/Tree Planting

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, we transitioned to virtual meetings that lasted about 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, we will lose our chapter and all of the PTA sponsored events.  Currently, we are in need of a Secretary in order to keep our PTA chapter going.   Please see the document attached HERE for a description of current Board and Committee Lead positions. For more detail or if you are interested in taking a role, please contact [email protected]

As the fourth quarter begins, know that we are here to support you in whatever manner you may need, whether it be transition to middle school, summer activities, or academic support. 

All our best,

Fairhill Community Garden Round Up

Fairhill Community Garden CleanUp

Dear Fairhill Families: 

Today’s Fairhill Forum is all about the appreciation and GRATITUDE for the tremendous support our community showed this past weekend during our Garden Clean-Up Day. As you can see from the pictures and videos below, we had a tremendous turn out of well over a hundred people and the result of our team effort is incredible. We worked through beautiful sunshine, light rain, snow and hail - a typical day in the month of March in Northern Virginia! 

Even if you were unable to come out and physically support, you likely still contributed by volunteering your time time or donating funds to the PTA through The Fun Run, Square One Art, Restaurant Nights and all of our other fundraising opportunities that allowed us to have such a successful day. 

While the main purpose of this event was to plant, revitalize and beautify our grounds, the most inspirational part of the day was seeing the smiles, laughs, new friends and connections between families and Fairhill staff. We all know that relationships are the most important factor in student success and Saturday was a great reminder of that. The connections and relationships with the community are two of the most important factors in school success. Thank you for being part of our Fairhill Community and the support you give to our amazing school. 

With Deep Gratitude, 

Ted & Courtney 

PS: A reminder that Thursday is an early release (2:05 PM), Friday a student holiday, and next week is Spring Break. Enjoy the much deserved break with your students before we head into the 4th quarter of the school year.

Thanks to our awesome staff who were able to attend the amazing event!    (Not pictured: Phil Peevy and Joan Swanson)

                   Check out an incredible Time Lapse video put together by                 Mr. Stephen 'Scorsese Spielberg' Giese

What a beautiful day to get dirty! 

Mr. Hirz, a Fairhill parent graduate, was on hand to help guide all this work!

Mr. Cooper wasn't afraid to get dirty in the rain garden!

Students dug into the work, too! 

Huge thanks to Mr. Denver Applehans for these great pictures. 

Thank you also goes to Mrs. Nicole Applehans, Mrs. Barbara Hayes and Mrs. Mary Beth Palmer for helping bring this project together!

Please check out this amazing video that encapsulates the day!

Dear Fairhill Families,

We are partnering with the Urban Forest Management and Storm water Planning departments of Fairfax County Government and FCPS to revitalize the grounds around Fairhill.  This project was kicked off a few years ago and we are excited to take the next step. We need your help to make this a success!

When:  Saturday, March 26, 10am - 2pm

(The event will occur if there is a light rain.  If the forecast calls for heavy rain, we will reschedule).

What:  We have several volunteer opportunities for the entire family for the garden clean up community event.

Rain Garden:  Our rain garden was put on hold during covid but we are ready to complete the project. Our rain garden is part Fairfax County's Revitalize, Restore, Replant initiative.  It will help clean rain water run off before it enters the watershed and provide a habitat for many native pollinators and valuable bugs, among other benefits.  We encourage you to watch this short video to learn more about the value of our rain garden.  It may not always look pretty, but it serves a very important role in our ecosystem.  In exciting news, we already found several praying mantis egg cases (they eat mosquitos, yahoo!).

  1.  Plant new plants donated by the Watershed Education and Outreach team.
  2.  Remove the old temporary fence.
  3.  Install a new protective fence.

Assist with Tree Planting:  The Urban Forest Management Department plans to kick off their program at Fairhill with 8 trees that will be planted in the playground area.  Families are encouraged to assist with planting the trees and applying mulch.

Spread Mulch:  We have a landscaping crew coming to clean out and edge the flowerbeds around the school.  Families may be asked to help distribute the mulch in the flowerbeds.

Clean Up:  As you work your way around the school, please help us clean up the playground by picking up trash, used masks and abandoned recess toys.   

Steel toed boots:  We are in need of a parent with steel toed boots to operate the auger in the rain garden.  If you have steel toed boots and are willing to work on the rain garden project, please contact [email protected].

We are looking forward seeing you at this community event.  In order to adequately prepare, we are asking for a head-count for those interested.  Signing up does not obligate you to a particular role or time.  We just need an idea of how many families will show up to our event.  To access the signup genius, click here.

Refreshments will be served.

Note to parents:  There will be a landscaping crew as well as gardening tools found throughout the playground during this event.  Please keep an eye on your children.  We don't want anyone to get hurt.

Estimadas familias de Fairhill:  

Como mencionaron el Sr. Cooper y la Sra. Korb en el Foro de Fairhill del 1° de marzo, nos estamos asociando con los departamentos de Planificación de Aguas Pluviales y Gestión de Bosques Urbanos del Gobierno del Condado de Fairfax y FCPS para revitalizar los terrenos alrededor de Fairhill. Este proyecto se inició hace unos años y estamos emocionados de dar el siguiente paso. ¡Necesitamos su ayuda para que esto sea un éxito!  

Cuándo: Sábado 26 de marzo, de 10 a.m. a 2 p.m.  

(El evento ocurrirá si hay lluvia ligera. Si el pronóstico indica lluvia fuerte, lo reprogramaremos).  

Qué: Tenemos varias oportunidades de voluntariado para toda la familia para el evento comunitario de limpieza del jardín.  

Rain Garden: Nuestro jardín de lluvia se suspendió durante el Covid, pero estamos listos para completar el proyecto. Nuestro jardín de lluvia es parte de la iniciativa Revitalizar, Restaurar, Replantar del Condado de Fairfax. Ayudará a limpiar el agua de lluvia antes de que entre en la cuenca y proporcionará un hábitat para muchos polinizadores nativos e insectos valiosos, entre otros beneficios. Lo alentamos a que vea este breve video para obtener más información sobre lo valioso que resulta nuestro jardín de lluvia. Puede que no siempre se vea bonito, pero cumple un papel muy importante en nuestro ecosistema. En noticias emocionantes, ya encontramos varios casos de huevos de mantis religiosa (¡comen mosquitos, yahoo!)  

  1. Plantar nuevas plantas donadas por el equipo de Educación y Divulgación de Cuencas Hidrográficas.

Website Coordinator

We are in need of a parent who can keep our PTA website up to date.  Experience with WordPress would be helpful.  

Staff Appreciation Week

Staff Appreciation Week is the first week of May and we are in need of volunteers to join our committee.  The committee will come up with ideas for showering the staff with appreciation during the week (for example lunches, surprises in staff mailboxes, chocolate fountain in the staff lounge, etc), create signup genius pages for donations and volunteers (if needed) and help ensure that the staff feel our appreciation.  We are so fortunate to have such an amazing group of people take care of our kids each day.  If you would like to help show them our gratitude, please join this committee.

Family Fun Day

We haven't been able to host our family fun day in 2 years due to covid so we are very excited to bring back the tradition!  In June, the PTA will host a family fun day.  This is an outdoor (weather permitting) carnival type event for the Fairhill community.  We usually have food trucks, bouncy/inflatable games, a staff dunk tank, sports drills with Falls Church High School and more.  The committee will design the event (new ideas are welcome!), book food trucks and take shifts managing the event.  The Family Fun Day is a wonderful community building experience to wrap up the school year. Please consider donating your time and ideas to this celebration!

The conference schedule, guest speaker information, presentation descriptions and more is available on the conference website.

Each year our Special Education Conference draws an audience of parents, educators, administrators, preservice teachers, and community members eager to hear the latest research, strategies, and trends in the education of students with learning challenges, special needs, and disabilities.

Free Online Tutoring Services for All Students Coming Soon!

All FCPS students will soon have unlimited access to online tutoring support services through Tutor.com at no cost. Funds to support Tutor.com for school year 2022-23 and 2023-24 will come from an ESSER III Unfinished Learning Grant. 

Students can connect online any time, and in most subjects for as long as they need. Tutoring is focused instruction provided to students in a one-on-one format through voice or text chat. Tutors will focus on developing student’s strengths and capabilities in reading, mathematics, or other specified subjects. Tutoring services may be accessed before, during, or after school hours and/or on weekends through a link in Schoology. 

All tutors must pass a rigorous application process including an extensive background check. No personal information is shared between a student and tutor. All sessions are recorded and transcripts are available for review by teachers and parents/guardians. 

Students will automatically have access to the Tutor.com tutoring service unless a parent/guardian submits an opt-out request. All FCPS families will soon receive an email including an online tutoring services notice and opt-out information. Additionally, a hard copy form will be sent home with every student. 

For additional information, visit our online tutoring services website.

We hope to see you all at our Garden Clean-Up Day on March 26th from 10 AM - 2 PM. The Fairhill PTA will be sending out a flier soon. It will be a great day to have our Fairhill Tigers involved in the beautification of their school. 

Have a great week.

Hello Fairhill Families-

Our week is off to a great start! As you know, today came with lots of potential transitions for students and staff but of course our Fairhill students, families and teachers handled it with grace and compassion. We are all one Fairhill Family that show respect and support to each other. Today that respect was shared throughout the school. Thank you. 

Anyone with a garden or lawn knows that with beautiful Spring weather comes a reminder of Spring cleaning!  We are in Spring clean up mode at Fairhill.  We have a great plan to beautify our grounds with the help of our partners, Urban Forest Management, Fairfax Government, FCPS and our wonderful PTA . Over the next three years we plan to have over 20 trees donated and planted on our property and studied by our students!  It’s a large project and we need your help as well. Please save the date and join us on the morning of Saturday,  March 26th for our Family Garden Clean Up Day which will include tree planting, revitalizing our rain garden, and community building.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. 

All our best,

News from Fairhill PTA Join the PTA!

As we head back to school in person, it is the perfect time to bring our Fairhill community back together.  One of the best ways to feel connected to our teachers, staff and families is to join the PTA.  You can become a member by accessing this link

Opportunities to contribute to the Fairhill Community PTA

Are you interested in working with the PTA but don't know how to begin?  As we head into the spring, the PTA has several fun ways for parents to get involved supporting our school and community.

Website Coordinator

We are in need of a parent who can keep our PTA website up to date.  Experience with WordPress would be helpful.  

Fairhill Grounds Clean Up

We are in the planning phase of a Fairhill grounds clean up community event.  We would like to pick up trash, weed the flower beds and possibly plant some new bushes or flowers.  If you have gardening skills to lend or are interested in helping lead the event, we will happily include you in our planning sessions.

Staff Appreciation Week

Staff Appreciation Week is the first week of May and we are in need of volunteers to join our committee.  The committee will come up with ideas for showering the staff with appreciation during the week (for example lunches, surprises in staff mailboxes, chocolate fountain in the staff lounge, etc), create signup genius pages for donations and volunteers (if needed) and help ensure that the staff feel our appreciation.  We are so fortunate to have such an amazing group of people take care of our kids each day.  If you would like to help show them our gratitude, please join this committee.

Family Fun Day

We haven't been able to host our family fun day in 2 years due to covid so we are very excited to bring back the tradition!  In June, the PTA will host a family fun day.  This is an outdoor (weather permitting) carnival type event for the Fairhill community.  We usually have food trucks, bouncy/inflatable games, a staff dunk tank, sports drills with Falls Church High School and more.  The committee will design the event (new ideas are welcome!), book food trucks and take shifts managing the event.  The Family Fun Day is a wonderful community building experience to wrap up the school year. Please consider donating your time and ideas to this celebration! 

 

If any or all of these volunteer opportunities appeal to you, please contact [email protected].

Hello Fairhill Families-

We hope your students shared with you how wonderful our 100th Day of School was yesterday! Can you believe that we have made it this far in the year already!?

Many families have shared concerns about the weight of the laptop in primary grades and the new FCPS rule to have students take them home daily. We appreciate all of your input and feedback and have decided as a school, our primary students (PK-2) will only be required to bring their laptop home on Fridays in case of potential unforeseen weather conditions on Monday that would lead to a digital snow day. If snow is in the forecast during the week we will make the call on a case by case basis. Of course, if you would like your child to continue to bring their laptop home, that is also fine.

In case you missed it in the PTA newsletter, we are super excited to share that on Saturday, March 26th we will have a Fairhill Garden Clean Up Day. We hope you can all attend as it’s a great opportunity for our students to give back to our school community and build connections with each other in a safe way since it's outside. More details to come. 

Stay well, 

Ted & Courtney

Hello Fairhill Families-

We are off to a great first full week of February!

We hope to see you all at the Town Hall on Thursday at 5:30 PM followed by our PTA meeting at 6:30 PM. A ZOOM link will be sent out on Thursday to access. Even if you just join by phone, we would love to have our families there. 

Take good care,

Ted & Courtney

  • Equity at Fairhill
  • Equity vs Equality

FCPS Policy on Masks

FCPS continues to require universal mask wearing in alignment with CDC guidance. Our layered prevention strategies have proven effective in keeping transmission rates low in our schools. We know our students are best served by in-person instruction. Adhering to our layered prevention strategies, especially universal masking, keeps our schools open and safe places for students to learn.

Hello Fairhill Families-

We made it to February! With all of the cold weather, January felt extra long this year.

As February rolls in we have an abundance of things to celebrate. Today is a special day because it is not only the first day of Black History Month but it is also Lunar New Year! We are wishing a Happy New Year to all who are celebrating and taking extra excitement in knowing it’s the year of the Tiger, our school mascot. 

We had a great day kicking off our celebration of Black History Month at Fairhill today!  Please remember to mark your calendar for our Town Hall next Thursday, February 10, 2022, at 5:30 PM.  It will be led by our Equity Team sharing some of the great work we do to promote an equitable and culturally responsive school community throughout the year. 

Enjoy the few days of warmer weather we have in the forecast this week and know that we are here in support of your students and family.

All our best,

Ted & Courtney

Hello Fairhill Families: 

Today was an amazing start to our second semester! While the January calendar has been a bit inconsistent with inclement weather and student holidays, it has been inspiring to visit classrooms today and see our students so deep in learning. We missed your children just as much as they, hopefully, missed school over the last few days. 

Thank you all for your support during a successful virtual snow day. We had phenomenal attendance and hopefully you enjoyed getting a glimpse into your child’s day-to-day classroom experience. 

Rising 7th grade families, don’t forget that tomorrow (Wednesday, 1/26) is the Luther Jackson Middle School Curriculum night on ZOOM. More information can be found from your classroom teacher. 

Stay well, 

Ted & Courtney
