Success Through Parent Involvement

At FAIR, we connect with parents to form a strong partnership between home and School.  We are dedicated to fostering a school/home partnership that benefits students, families, and school staff. As a parent/guardian, your involvement and commitment is essential to the success of our school community. Together we carry the hopes and aspirations of our children’s future. We hold the privilege of ensuring they understand the value of education and experience the joy of learning.

We encourage you to take an active role in our community, where students are encouraged to dream big and work hard. At FAIR, families matter, so be sure to be in the know, be informed, and be involved.
