Warrior Pride 
Thanks to e. E. Charlton-Trujillo, author of Fat Angie and co-founder of Never Counted Out, an organization that seeks to empower at-risk youth through writing and the arts, 48 new teen novels have been donated to the MMS/FHS library. Diverse characters and situations are a part of these added titles as it is important for all teens to be able to see themselves in the books they read. Please encourage students to stop by the library and check out our display, or better yet - a book!
On Election Day this past month, an awesome group of 18 seniors worked at various polling locations throughout the Cleveland area. I just got the feedback from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections and it was GLOWING, including reports like:
            "The kids from Fairview High School were all friendly and willing to help when needed."
            "Great team of workers."
            "Great group - loved the help of the students."
So thank you to the students who represented FHS so well and thank you to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections for providing such a unique opportunity for our kids to participate in our democracy!
Polaris will be presenting to our 10th grade English classes on either December 13th or the 21st. Programs and application procedures will be discussed. On January 16th those students interested can visit Polaris. Permission slip is required and can be obtained in the counseling office after December 13th. Please direct any questions to Mrs. Walsh. 

Polaris provides real world career-technical education in a high-tech learning environment. At Polaris, you can begin earning college credit before you ever step foot on a college campus - saving time and money. In addition, many Polaris programs provide you access to industry-recognized certifications. After graduation, you can go directly into the job market or capitalize on those credit hours by continuing your education at a two- or four-year college.

Student Leadership Academy
Mental Health Student Survey
A group of 11th grade students have been selected to participate in the First Ring Superintendents' Student Leadership Academy, a year-long leadership program for high school juniors in the sixteen districts that surround Cleveland Municipal School District. 

These student leaders will build the skills and form the relationships to become change leaders in their schools and communities. The student leaders have chosen their year-long project on: "Mental health awareness, treatment, and acceptance."

Students will be distributing an anonymous electronic survey to their peers in grades 6-12 to collect some information about students who may be dealing with anxiety and/or depression either personally or through a friend or family member. The survey is anonymous and the data collected will help develop a plan to make sure the students of Fairview Park are getting the help they need to be successful.  

Parents not wanting their student to participate in the survey should speak with their student prior to survey distribution on December 12. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Leadership Academy Advisor Mrs. Janice Frygier or FACE Coordinator Carrie Sullivan.
From Carrie Sullivan, Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Coordinator 

Thank you to those who attended a showing of "Angst: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety" or the first Parent University Workshop. 

I want to make sure that everyone knows there are resources available for all!

Check out the FACE page on the district website, which is accessible from the Homepage or under the Parent Resources tab. 

All the resources listed will help with any age. If you have any questions or concerns, please call your child's counselor to let them know and they will guide you on the next steps.

If you have other topics you would like to hear about at the next Parent University, please let me know!
