Dear Fairhill Tiger Familes,

We have less than 30 days left of school and we are focusing on finishing the school year strong! Our end of the year assessments have begun and will last through June. We also have lots of fun learning that will continue throughout the rest of the school year. 

April gave our children an opportunity to shine through our wonderful Arts program. Thank you to everyone who came to our spring music concerts. Our students have been working on hard on sharpening their instrumental and vocal skills.  

A special thank you to Mr. Peevy for writing a bicycle grant for Fairhill. As you know, our upper grade students are experiencing the fruit of Mr. Peevy’s labor this month as they participate in the Bike Riding and Safety unit.

This is also the time of year that we offer the opportunity for parents to provide input into the class placement process. We will be accepting feedback until Friday, May 31st. Please click here to access the parent input form.

As always, we are a team! Have a question or a concern? Email us or call using the contact info below!
