It's Elementary

Brandy Blanton, Elementary School’s nurse, provides weekly news and tips for helping children at home.


     Fair Elementary’s cookie dough fundraiser kicked off on Tuesday, February 25th and will end on Wednesday, March 5th.  Money for the fundraiser is due in the office on March 5th by 8:00 am.  It is important that your child’s money is turned in on or before the 5th; this helps to ensure a faster delivery on our product and prizes.  The money from this fundraiser will be used to help purchase miscellaneous items for the classrooms.  This money is also used to help pay for the Perfect Attendance Party that is held at the end of the school year. Prizes start at just 2 tubs/boxes and are cumulative.  The top 3 sellers will receive cash prizes of $100 for first place, $50 for second place, and $25 for third place.  Students who sell 18 tubs/boxes will win the “Limo Pizza Party,” which has become a favorite of Fair students.  These students actually get to leave the school one day in a stretch Limo.  They are taken to Pizza Hut for lunch and then transported back to school in style.  If you see a Fair student, ask them about how to support the school by buying some cookie dough. If you don’t know a Fair student, and are interested in supporting our students, call the school at 773-5946 and ask how you can purchase some delicious cookie dough.


     Fair Elementary still has some Wildcat socks available.  The socks are Lime green and Hot pink with paw prints and are $15.00 each.  We are still selling Fair Elementary car magnets for $5.00 each. We also have some 2013 cookbooks available for purchase for $5.00 each and some “TEAM HUNTER” shirts, bracelets, and pins for Leukemia awareness.  Please contact Fair Elementary office if you have any questions or would like to purchase any of these items.

“It’s Elementary”
Brandy Blanton, Elementary School’s nurse, provides weekly news and tips for helping children at home.


February is American Heart Month.  During the month of February, Americans see the human heart as the symbol of love.  February is American Heart Month, a time to show yourself the love.  Learn about your risk for heart disease and stroke and stay “heart healthy” for yourself and your loved ones. 
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) – including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure- is the number one killer of women and men in the United States.  It is a leading cause of disability, preventing Americans from working and enjoying family activities.  CVD costs the United States over $300 billion each year, including the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.
CVD does not affect all groups of people in the same way. Although the number of preventable deaths has declined in people aged 65 to 74 years, it has remained unchanged in people under age 65.  Men are more than twice as likely as women to die from preventable CVD.
Having a close relative who has heart disease puts you at higher risk for CVD.  Health disparities based on geography also exist.  During 2007-2009, death rates due to heart disease were the highest in the South and lowest in the West.
Race and ethnicity also affect your risk.  Nearly 44% of African American men and 48% of African American women have some form of CVD.  And African Americans are more likely than any other racial or ethnic group to have high blood pressure and to develop the condition earlier in life.  About 2 in 5 African American adults have high blood pressure, yet fewer than half of them have the condition under control.
Many CVD deaths could have been prevented through healthier habits, healthier living spaces, and better management of conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes.
