It's Elementary

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

Thank you to Dr. Richard and Patricia Hewitt (grandparents of Ella Marie and Wyatt Long) for their generous donation for computers for education.

    Thank you to all of those who helped Fair Elementary raise money for the Pennies for Patients fund raiser.  Fair Elementary raised $810.00 for Pennies for Patients.  This money will be spent on patient and community services, research, public health and professional education for those who are sick with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Fair Elementary’s cookie dough fundraiser kicked off on Tuesday, February 25th and ends today.  Money for the fundraiser is due in the office today, March 5th by 8:00 am.  It is important that your child’s money is turned in today; 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.
