Welcome Back! September Update

On behalf of the staff at Fairview School, I would like to welcome all of the students and parents to another new school year filled with rich and rewarding learning experiences and opportunities for all students. 

We have grown in student numbers and staff for the 2019-20 school year.  Fairview is 870 plus students strong.  Our teaching staff and support staff is currently at 50 plus and we are hoping to add to this in the very near future.  Our additions will be in the area of lunch time supervision and English Language Learner supports.

I thank all of our families for being patient with school start-up as we did run into a few concerns with bus transportation.  We do believe that these errors have been corrected and that all families are now able to register for bus transportation.  If you have not registered we ask that you do so.  We may still experience some changes to transportation as the CBE and bus provider adjust to accurate student loads.

We had a wonderful turn out for our Meet the Teacher evening.  Our format allows parents to understand what your child experiences on a day-to-day basis and provides you with the opportunity to meet each of their teachers. 

With September coming to a close it is our expectation that families have purchased the appropriate TLC uniform items.  One of the biggest uniform infractions is shoes.  Students must wear all black, non-marking soled shoes.  If these are dress shoes, they must have non-marking soles.  Teachers will be addressing those students who are not complying with uniform requirements beginning October 1st.  This may result in your child not being able to wear casual clothing on the next casual day.  Should this occur, your homeroom teacher will notify you that your child has lost their casual day privileges. 

We must also remind parents that the streets surrounding Fairview School are bus zones and do not allow for parking.  Please obey these signs as you may receive a ticket from the Calgary Police Services or Calgary Bylaw Services. 

September has flown by with the highlights being our Meet the Teacher evening, the Terry Fox Run and our Anti-bullying presentation from Leo Barbe.

We have only just begun and I look forward to the exciting year ahead.​
