Happy Holidays!

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and the entire FVSD Family, we wish to extend our warmest wishes for an AMAZING Holiday Break!  This is a special time of year, where we all get to spend additional time with loved ones.  

We are extremely grateful to our highly dedicated employees who continue to serve our students at the highest level.  We also want to acknowledge and thank our parents, guardians and community for their continued support.  

Thank you for all that you do to support teaching and learning in our District!

T he Fountain Valley School District was pleased to host its First Annual Polar Day at Talbert Middle School on Saturday, December 12th.  The event was designed to showcase various STEAM activities in the District and was open to all FVSD students and their families.  Over 950 attendees, with students from preschool to eighth grade, participated in the experience.  The effort was led by the District's OC STEM Initiative Team, which consists of teachers, support staff, parents and administrators.  In addition, ExplorOcean, a local non-profit organization committed to teaching students about ocean literacy, played a significant role in the day's events and has been a committed partner with FVSD for the last few years.  Please take a few minutes to watch a slide show of this very special day.  

UPDATE: FVSD Hires LPA, Inc., Architectural Firm, to Complete a Facilities Master Plan
At last week's meeting, the Fountain Valley School District Board of Trustees approved the hiring of architectural firm LPA, Inc., to complete a Facilities Master Plan for the District.  Please find LPA's presentation (below), which was provided to the Board of Trustees at last week's meeting.

For more information, here is last month's press release regarding the District's efforts to address our facilities needs.
