Our wonderful Title 1 Coordinator, Claudia Filippi came up with the idea of having a Tiger Cub Closet. The Tiger Cub Closet is a safe space for our youngest students to shop for items they may need! We offer clothing, shoes, school supplies, and love. Our wonderful Fairview Foundation has sponsored us to offer this service to our school community. Our own FES parent and volunteer, Liz Imbrogno, created, organized, and helped supply the new Tiger Cub Closet. And as a way to say Thank you for all of her hard work, Liz was awarded the first Above and Beyond Award given by the Fairview School District Administration and School Board. We could not be more proud of our staff, parents, and volunteers for what they do every day to make Fairview School District the best schools possible!
The students in Mrs. Huggler's ELA class have been working on descriptive writing. They had fun tasting donuts and thinking about words to describe the smell, texture, and taste. The class then applied this to their writing activity and designed their own donut.
