welcome back

To Our Dearest Fairhill Community, 

We hope that everyone has been able to relax (at least a little) and enjoy the ease of students not being in school and online for school! The past year and a half has certainly been remarkable and we know that it has taken a toll on our families and overall community. We can't wait to have a fantastic kick off to our in-person school year!! 

We are proud to share that we have over 100 Fairhill students attending summer programs in July.  We have Bridge to Kindergarten, SOAR, and Young Scholars classes. We are all wearing masks when the students are here and are anticipating this to be the same once the school year starts for students on August 23rd. (More information will be shared soon.)

The FCPS focus for 2021-2022 is relationships, connections and trust.  These three pillars form a strong foundation to support the social-emotional health of students, parents, and staff as we return to school.  It is our goal that each and every child feel safe, secure, and cared for from day #1, August 23rd. 

We will be hosting our Back to School Bash on August 19th as well as our Back to School Bus Tour where staff will be coming to a neighborhood near you! Be on the lookout for more information about these fun events in the coming weeks. 

As always, we are a team and we are so excited to welcome everyone back to Fairhill soon. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns or compliments you may have.

Interim Principal                Assistant Principal
