Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Fairfield Elementary Magnet School! On behalf of our Fairfield PTA, I'd like to welcome all of our new and returning Bulldog Families! My name is Stephanie Smith and I look forward to serving as PTA President this year.
Fairfield holds a special place in my heart as our family starts our sixth year here. Our daughter Landry is starting fifth grade, and our two sons Harrison and Benjamin are starting first grade and Kindergarten. It has been a joy to see each of our children thrive as the Faculty and Staff have poured into them academically, while also teaching them compassion and providing them a nurturing, supportive learning environment.
Last year, our faculty and staff moved forward with the introduction of the new Global Studies focus. I have been continually impressed with the lessons that were integrated into our existing curriculum and presented to the children in captivating ways. I can't wait to see where the program will go this year and watch as the students expand their horizons to learn about cultures around the world. The Fairfield PTA will work in earnest to support these new ideas and goals as guided by our educators.
We have loaded the school calendar with many events, and we hope to see you at all of them. Of course, we are remaining vigilant and ready to adapt should the need arise. If you have not already, please download the Fairfield App. This is the BEST source of information related to your child's education at Fairfield. The app will give you access to the calendar, the Tuesday Talk weekly newsletter, and notifications from the school and your child's teacher(s). You can also visit our website www.fairfieldmagnet.org
for more information.
The Fairfield PTA's motto is: "Every child - One voice". We strive to have at least one PTA member for each child in our school so that each child's voice is represented. Membership is open to parents, guardians, grandparents, friends, neighbors, and more. The Fairfield PTA supports our school in many ways, joining PTA is an easy way to build community and contribute to the little extras that set our school apart. A single membership costs $10 can be purchased on Local Level or email [email protected]org
for more information.
We still may not know exactly what this year will look like, but we strive to have as many family-oriented and fun events as possible. It's not too late for you to get involved with a planning committee. Please reach out to the committee chairperson or email me at [email protected]org
. Come join us - we would love to have you!
