Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Fairfield North Elementary!  We are working hard to prepare for another awesome, inspiring, growth-filled, memorable school-year!  We hope that you and your children are as excited as we are in anticipation of yet another year of working together to love, educate and celebrate your child!  Here is some important information to help you prepare for the upcoming school year.

 

CLASS LISTS:

Teachers will mail individual student letters home on August 12.  This will be full of needed information to start the school year.  Also, bus routes will be posted on the district website about one week prior to the start of school.  Be sure to check online for bus information.

 

KINDERGARTEN PARENT INFORMATION:

We will have a Parent Orientation for our Kindergarten parents beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the gymnasium on Thurs., Aug. 15.  We will be discussing the Kindergarten program and how we will work together to make a smooth transition for your child.  Please make childcare arrangements for your Kindergartner and siblings during this time so that you can attend. 

 

OPEN HOUSE SCHEDULE:

Open House will provide an opportunity for students and parents to visit the classroom and meet the teacher. 

*Each classroom teacher in Kdg. will mail specific information regarding the Open House format in their “Welcome” letters in August.  

*Each classroom teacher in Grades 1-5 will be giving a 20 minute formal presentation to explain the specifics of the grade level expectations.  The schedule will be as follows:

 

Monday, August 19       Grades AM K, 1 & 2                       6:00 – 7:00 PM

                                       Grades PM K, 3, 4 & 5                    7:30 – 8:30 PM

 

 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21 – FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR 19-20

Students return!  School hours are 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  The AM Kindergarten session is from 9:30 a.m.-12:10 p.m.  The PM Kindergarten session is from 1:20 p.m.-4:00 p.m.   We encourage everyone to put their children on the bus on the first day of school.  This helps the teachers know what bus to put the child on at the end of the day.

 

(NOTE:  If you pick up your child(ren) at the end of the day, please know it takes extra time to make sure everyone is where they need to be at the end of the first few days of school.  Pick up students will not be released until all the buses have been released.) 

 

 

KINDERGARTENERS:

During the first three days of school (8/21/19-8/23/19), we will have a staggered start.  Only one third of the class will be invited to attend each of the first three days of school.  More information on this will be mailed to your home this summer.  The first day for all Kindergarten students is Monday, August 26.

 

SCHOOL FEES:

School fees for Grades 1-5 are $60.00, and Kindergarten school fees are $40.00.  You may pay school fees online at www.fairfieldcityschools.com using MasterCard or Visa.  Click on the PaySchools Central Link or you may pay with cash, money order or check payable to Fairfield North Elementary.  Fees are due Friday, September 27, 2019.

 

SCHOOL SUPPLIES:

All school supply lists are posted online at www.fairfieldcityschools.com.  Please bring these supplies with you during our Open House.  If you are unable to attend our Open House, please send the school supplies with your child on the first day of school. 

 

I can’t wait to see you at Open House!  Make sure to stop by and say hi!

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Hayes

At North Elementary we believe your child needs to possess all three "A" characteristics in order to thrive in their educational career:
Attendance - Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Please make every attempt to make sure your child arrives to school on time and ready to learn!
Attitude - A positive attitude goes a long way! We encourage our students to have an "I CAN" attitude during their school day and beyond. Our current Positive Behavior Supports system of rewarding students for exhibiting expected behaviors is also key for the respectful attitude displayed in our building. We live by the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated!
Academics - Students at North receive a firm foundation of academic skills to build their future learning. We believe academic success is not a race - it's a journey!
