Hello Fairmeadow,
 
Can you believe that this week will be our first full week back at school this year - it feels like we have been back so much longer already this new year!!
 
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new families that have joined Fairmeadow over the past few months and weeks. If you need any help settling in or have any questions please reach out to us here at PTA via our email address fairmeadowPTA@gmail.com we would be happy to help!
 
Lots of information to cover this week, hoping I can highlight all of these quickly for you, grab a cup of tea or coffee and take 5 mins!
 
🙋🏻1 Palo Alto : This campaign for volunteers to help keep our schools open which started just over a week ago, with a collaboration between District and PTA, has garnered hundreds of volunteers across Palo Alto and National interest from all over the country. I have even heard of it making International news! 
  • We would like to extend our immense thanks to all those that have signed up and volunteered todate - thank YOU!
  • To become part of this movement to help Fairmeadow remain open, you need to firstly register via Districts link for approval to volunteer on campus, you can do so here.  Please note registering with District does not automatically assign you to a volunteer role. Once you register I will manually add you to the Fairmeadow 1 Palo Alto group on Konstella, you can then select the links to the opening positions and choose dates and times that work for your schedule. 
  • We still need help - especially for the Light Custodial duties, which involves wiping down tables after school, the more people we have each day, the faster the task is completed, if we have a full sign up it could take just 15 minutes of your time.
 
Covid/School related questions : Should you have any questions you can add them to this google doc called 2022 Covid and we will work with our Principal to answer all your questions and concerns. 
 
🗓PTA General Meeting : Our general meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 26th at 7pm. Please see our proposed agenda here. Should you have any other topics you would like added please let us know by emailing Fairmeadow Pta. All are welcome, but only PTA members can vote at our meetings, Become a Member of our Fairmeadow PTA today. Zoom link will be posted on Konstella closer to the meeting date, we would love to have you attend.
 
🛍Shopping Anyway? : Just a reminder there are lots of ways to help raise funds for our school while you are shopping for yourself, at no extra cost to you!

❣️Kindness Challenge Week Jan 24th - 28th: Don’t forget to check out our Principals message below to find out more about how our school and staff are helping our students celebrate Kindness week. Fairmeadow already has the most kindhearted and caring people within our community! One small act of kindness challenge for our parents and caregivers this week - reach out via your Konstella classroom to just say hello, who your student is and how long they have been at Fairmeadow! This should help our newer families get to know some more people also :)
