Welcome Back!
From the Office
The new MS office is now OPEN, however, we are going to continue to have parents pick-up and drop-off their children as we have been all year. If your child is leaving school early or arriving late, you will continue to sign them out/in in the high school office. There will be many construction vehicles on Campus Drive as the project continues. For the safety of you and your children, as well as to avoid any confusion at this late date in the school year, we will continue to operate as we have all year - pick up and drop off will remain along West 213, through the main parking lot. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

If a student lost their locker due to the transition that occurred, they were emailed a new locker number and combination on Wednesday afternoon. If they have questions re: their new locker location, they can go to the MS office to ask Mrs. Ristagno.

You can still order your YEARBOOK online! Visit ybpay.lifetouch.com to order, using the Yearbook ID Code: 11998419.

Hi Fairview Park Families!

As spring is upon us (finally!)....this time of year always flies by.......so I wanted to take a moment to remind all of us to stay focused on what we need to do before the end of the school year and also start thinking of some plans for the summer. 

Finish strong
* Is your child caught up on all their school work?  If not, have them email or talk to their teacher to see what is missing. Then make sure they spend some time doing the work.
* Make sure your child is getting 8-10 hours of sleep each night.
* Make sure your child knows ways to de-stress (the MS/HS know from our workshops)....check out the FACE Resource page to see the anxiety and stress articles. 

Summer ideas 
* Check out the FACE resource page of summer camps listed
* Check out the Gemini site for all their activities (they are looking for volunteer MS and HS students for Safety Town).
* Library has a bunch of fun programs....starting to fill...hurry up and check them out!
* Over 16 years old...check out on the Counseling page the Job board.....many ideas!!  Not sure how to find a job...come see me...I can guide you through the process (room 219).

As always, if you have some ideas for some topics on Parent Universities for next school year.....PLEASE email with any ideas of things you want to know about!!!  My door is always open for families of Fairview Park!
