Weekly News and Updates for the Week of December 9, 2019
Warriors of the Week
Each week through this year we will recognize several of our students through our "Warrior of the Week" award. Students receive this award for displaying effort that goes above-and-beyond our expectations - reflecting their drive to achieve personal and academic growth. 

This week's Warriors of the Week are:

Makenzie L.
Makenzie has come into Fairview like a rockstar! Although she just started, she has worked hard to catch up and complete her work. Makenzie helps her peers and participates in class, which makes her a great addition to every class. Keep up the amazing work, Makenzie! You're already a Warrior!

Corin C.
Corin is a bright and motivated student, who is eager to help those around her. She stepped up to the plate during science class this week to help guide her classmates who were having technology problems. In math class this week, Corin made sure every peer at her table had their checkpoint complete. She shows great interpersonal communication skills to keep peers motivated, encouraged, and on task. She regularly helps her classmates and is eager to share her thoughts and ideas. Yesterday, in ELA we started to brainstorm and write a rough draft and Corin's writing was phenomenal for just a first draft. In social studies, along with mentoring, she shares her assortment of fancy pens and highlighters with those around her. We are very impressed with her work ethic and maturity in 7th grade. She brings her positive energy to our classes. She is quick with a kind word and a smile. Corin works hard and consistently performs to her highest abilities. Great job, Corin, keep up the amazing work!

Marty H.
Marty is a fun-loving, friendly, out-of-the-box student. He is up for just about anything. He participates in class activities and school sponsored activities, both with a great attitude and a smile on his face. He is not afraid to laugh at himself but he takes his academics very seriously.  He is a great helper to all, often problem solving when peers need help. Marty is a great asset to our classes and we appreciate all of his hard work.
Ohio Department of Education
The State of Ohio, the Governor, the Ohio Department of Education, and other state-level defendants to a class action lawsuit have reached a proposed settlement and have requested our District's assistance in informing students and parents of the proposed settlement. HERE is a link to the settlement. To be clear, our District is not a defendant in this lawsuit and is not accused of any wrongdoing in this lawsuit. We are sharing this information as a courtesy to the Ohio Department of Education and our community.
Summit Personalized Learning Platform (PLP)
Most Likely To Succeed is a thought-provoking documentary feature film that reveals the growing shortcomings of conventional education methods in today's innovative world. The film explores compelling new approaches that aim to revolutionize education as we know it, inspiring school communities to reimagine what students and teachers are capable of doing. To date, MLTS has screened for thousands of audiences around the world, igniting conversations and empowering change along the way.
Food Drive
The High/Middle School Mentoring Classes will be participating in a Food Drive from December 2nd through December 18th.  Please bring in canned (tuna, soup, vegetables) or boxed food for the Fairview Food Bank. The mentoring class with the most donated food will receive a pizza party.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Families!

Before everything gets out of hand with holiday stuff, how about doing some "Kindness" as a family each day? This could be a fun way for our young children to learn ways they can help others.

I also wanted to make sure everyone had a great parent teacher conference. I hope your child is having a great year! Parents, are you feeling any frustration with the learning platform? Need help understanding how to see how your child is doing and what they need to be working on? If there are ANY issues, please email me ASAP so I can set you up with a parent mentor (parent of a student in our district that has been in your shoes and can help you)!

Keep calm and enjoy!����
