Hello Fairmeadow,
Wishing you all an enjoyable Spring Break with your family and friends! 
Here are some notices for you to add to your calendars or click on for more details! Don't forget to scroll to the bottom to check more upcoming events!
 
EARTH DAY CHALLENGE :
We’re kicking off Earth Day celebrations with the Flip The Switch Challenge💡
    • During this two week challenge kiddos will learn about where electricity comes from, why we need to conserve it and learn to take small eco actions that can, collectively, make a big difference! Not just on the planet but also our home utilities bill! :)
    • Students will receive their challenge instructions today at a special assembly presentation hosted by our own Fairmeadow Eco Warrior Parent Anu R. and Gunn High School Student Katie R.  They will receive weekly activity trackers to mark how many times they turn off an unnecessary light each day, for two weeks! At the end of each week, students should tally and return their weekly tracker sheets to the school main office on April 11 and 18, respectively. 
    • If our students collectively reach 2,500 flips or more, we’ll have a surprise celebration on Earth Day, April 22nd to celebrate our amazing Fairmeadow eco heroes!
 💯 MATH NIGHT @ FAIRMEADOW: 
  • Be sure to join in the fun of our upcoming in person Math Night on Wednesday April 20th!

  • This year there have been a lot more little accidents than usual and the clothing supplies are running very low.
  • If you have any clean, lightly used or never worn kids clothing to donate(new underwear only), suitable for all age groups K-5, please drop them in the donation box at the front office.
