It should be no secret to anyone that I love Fairview. I’ve written several articles over the years enumerating the many reasons why I love Fairview. I tell my friends about Fairview, expounding on the great things we do here. Today, however, I am not going to write another article on why I love Fairview. Instead, I want to put out a challenge to all of you. I believe that you also love Fairview. I believe that you are aware of what a wonderful place this is. I believe that many of you talk about Fairview to your friends and family. So here’s where the challenge comes in. I want to give you some tangible ideas of how we can do an even better job of spreading the good news about Fairview. Are you ready? Write your story – or better yet, have your kids write their story. We would love to have stories about how great Fairview is to publish on our website. Unless you want to add your name, or your child’s name to the story, they will be published as “a parent’s story” or “a student’s impression.” Send up pictures or short videos that can be published to our Facebook page, Twitter, or website. We are sensitive to not tag students, but this is a great way to show the world what our kids are doing. Put up a sign in your yard or in your neighborhood. We have some signs, about the size of the political signs that are seen in the fall of the year, that can be used to help get our name...

Review of last month’s Minutes – Minutes were approved as submitted. Technology Update – Kevin reported. A small group went down to Burien to possibly get some free computers. There was nothing valuable there and so they did not take anything. He is close to getting a new computer set up in Mrs. McGuire’s room. He is working with his current company to see if they would be willing to donate some of their old, unused equipment that would work perfectly for us. He is still interested in starting a Robotics group at school. The Hour of Coding was a huge success. The kids loved it! Special thanks to Kevin for all that he does for the school!
