STONE SOUP - 2014

 

Unfortunately due to the fact that we had only half the required presenters to run Stone Soup, the event has been cancelled for this school year. We would like to thank the solid nucleus of parents for volunteering and we hope to have the event and those volunteers, and more, back in the future. 

SPRING PRODUCTION

École Fairview will be hosting its Spring Production for Education Week at the Brantford Civic Centre. The production is loosely based on the works of Dr. Seuss. The presentation includes every class and student in the school and admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Brantford Food Bank. See you there.

Date:     Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Time:     6:30 - 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 6:00 p.m.)

Location: Brantford Civic Centre (69 Market Street South)

 

Tickets for the May 8th school production of “Going Places” will be going home on Wednesday, April 23 with the Youngest Child in the family.

GRADE 8 GRADUATION

The date of the graduation is set for Friday, June 20th, 2014 from approximately 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Brantford Collegiate Institute (i.e., B.C.I.). We are asking for students to arrive at B.C.I. for 5:30 p.m. to be included in the Graduation Photo on the steps of B.C.I. Finally, students will have a graduation party and dance, with cake and pizza, back at École Fairview starting at 8:00 p.m. and ending at 10:00 p.m.

 

Notices went home with all Grade 8 students on Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014.

 

MS READ-A-THON

 

Once again École Fairview will be participating in the MS READ-A-THON program. Since the MS Read-A-Thon’s inception in 1977, students across Canada have read millions of books and raised millions of dollars in support of the MS Society’s work to fund multiple sclerosis research and provide programs and services to individuals with MS and their families. Within the school the reading end date for the MS Read-A-Thon is Friday, April 25th, 2014 and in-school money collection will be Monday, April 28th, 2014 to Friday, May 2nd, 2014.
