Exemplary Programs
Fairview Elementary strives to create a leadership environment that enhances the educational, social and emotional development of our students. Fairview Elementary is a Leader in Me School and values the greatness in each student; we teach and apply the Seven Habits of Happy Kids. Our students are able to find their voice through various leadership roles. Our Positive Behavior Support (PBS) promotes the positive choices that our students make by recognizing and rewarding them with daily incentives and Quarterly Celebrations/Assemblies. We also have an active PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) that provides funding for field trips to enhance the curriculum across subject areas. We also have many school volunteers, foster grandparents, and mentors that support classroom activities and individual needs. We have Literature and Math nights, Super Science day, school-wide musical programs, Kindergarten Graduation and Fourth Grade Moving Up Ceremony.
