Greetings from Peggy Walter and Fairview Elementary School!
Fairview Elementary School is a community of learners committed to academic and personal growth. This supportive learning environment fosters the development of self-esteem, self-discipline, responsible decision making, respect and appreciation for diversity, cooperation and collaboration and the development of other essential skills for life-long learning.

I would invite you to visit our school calendar and become involved in the many parent involvement activities we have planned for this school year.

Peggy Walter, Principal

                                                             December 1, 2014

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are please to tell you that Fairview 4th Grade has been selected to
represent schools across our state and the nation by participating in the
National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP). It is the largest continuing
and nationally representative assessment and has been providing valid and
reliable data on student performance since 1969.

The results of NAEP are published in a report called The Nation’s Report Card, which
provides information about student achievement to educators, parents,
policymakers, and the public.

In our school, the NAEP assessment will be given on February 4th, 2015.
You can access student and sample assessment questions at http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/parents/.

Peggy Walter, Principal
Ginnetta Tipton, Counselor
