Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

Hi Fairview Park Families!

I know as we near the end of the school year, many students (and parents) are feeling anxious about the next school year especially when there is a transition to a new school. 

While I hope you are finding the FACE page, full of valuable information, I hope the families that will have a transition next year ... going into kindergarten, going into middle school and going into high school will check out the TRANSITION information that I have provided.

As always, if I can help with anything to help you become an engaged Fairview Park Family, please let me know!
