Pizza Lunches

Just a reminder the last day of the current pizza session is TODAY and the new session starts on February 24. So don't forget to sign up before next Wednesday. This is a GREAT way to not have to make a main dish for lunch and support our Middle schoolers on their FUN yet ALWAYS educational trip to Washington D.C.  


Spring Box Top Collection Drive

 It is time for our Spring Box Top Collection Drive.  Starting next week you can bring and deposit your Box Tops in the container in the main hallway.  Please remember that each Box Top earns 10¢ for our school.



 As a Fairview Mom I know we are ALL in the same mode with Science Fair AHH! and another AHH!

Good News... Sheila is so kind to us and has made it easier for us by sending home an order form for the display board today. Its simple---Send back the form with cash or check (to FCS) by FRIDAY. We will deliver the board to your student. I tried to get her to have the boards delivered completed but she told me it wasn't happening. -Amanda


Proceeds from Scrip go to Playground upgrades

As you know, we have had a SCRIP program for several years and we need your help to maximize the benefits of this program. SCRIP allows the school to earn money while you do your normal shopping. You simply buy gift cards for the stores where you regularly shop and the school gets a percentage of your purchase. The PTF in cooperation with the school and church, is embarking on a huge playground renovation. Any profits we earn from SCRIP will go toward our new playground. We are sending home weekly order forms in your child's Wednesday packets(or for child center with your child's daily report) but you can also sign up to purchase your SCRIP online. The link to our SCRIP page is below. We hope you will join with us in rethinking your regular shopping to help us reach our fundraising goals sooner!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to stop by the office and let us know

.The next order will be placed Tuesday morning (2/23) all orders need to be into the office or submitted online by 9a. If enough orders are received - otherwise we will delay the order until the next week. The cards will be available for pick up by Friday of the week that they are ordered.

Here are a few places that we have on hand. 

Target, Safeway, Albertsons,  Old Navy/Gap, Bath and Body Work, Starbucks, Walgreens, Macy's, Barnes and Noble, Movie tickets from Regal and AMC
