Greetings FAIR Students and Families,

We are counting down the last three weeks of the 2017-2018 school year!  Here is some important information, events and dates for the next few weeks:

1. Dress Code - As it gets warmer, students want to be chic and cool.  They must also follow the school dress code!    If a student is in violation of the appropriate dress code, they will be given the opportunity to change, cover up, or go home to get something within code to wear.  Parents will be contacted with any issues.

2.  Yearbook Sales - Our student produced yearbooks will be on sale from Tuesday, May 29 through June 8, 2018.  Early bird pricing of $10 before June 1, after that the price will be $15.  Get your yearbook early!  If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Criss at 612-668-1060.

3. FAIRNATION Block Party - June 1, 2018 - The Student Council has been very busy planning a Block Party  to support summer reading and celebrate our Class of 2018!  The will have student performances games, prizes, book fair a food truck and music in the back alley of the school.  Come join us from 5:00pm to 7:30pm!

4. Book Drive for Summer Reading - As part of the Block Party, Student Council will host a Book Drive  to encourage summer reading.  Books, magazines, comic books, chapter books for all ages that are collected will be sold or donated to students and families.  New or gently used books can be brought to the Main Office for collection.

5. Laptop Return for PSEO Students due June 1, 2018 - PSEO students with laptops can must turn them in by June 1, 2018 to Mr. Mudek during periods 1 and 7 and after school.  

6. No Laptops for 2018-2019 for PSEO - Minneapolis Public Schools does not allow schools to issue laptops to students for use outside the school building.  This school year, we were 'grandfathered' in as past practice at FAIR.  Moving forward to the 2018-2019 school year, FAIR will not be issuing laptops to PSEO students, but will make laptops available for students to use while studying on campus.
