OLD 2016-17 school year news — disregard if you’re looking for 2017-18 news

Fairfield Board of Ed. Hosts Town Hall-type Meeting, Oct. 24, 2016

The Board of Education is organizing another town hall meeting to take place at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 24 in the lecture hall at Fairfield Warde High School.  At the meeting, the public will be able to raise issues to the board. The town hall format aims to offer more back-and-forth than the 3-minute public comment section allows for at the BoE’s regular  meetings.

The board hosted its first town hall-style forum in February 2015. Two more town halls last year addressed specific topics — the District Improvement Plan and the Redistricting Committee Report. During those town halls, board members responded directly to community members’ direct questions and concerns for several hours.

This month’s meeting will mark the first town hall in 2016.

Sorry to interrupt summer vacation with talk of school...


FLHS needs help getting the summer mailing out to families. Volunteers are needed on Tuesday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 16 to stuff envelopes.

The fun will begin at 9:15 in the LMC. Grab a friend and come lend a hand. Many hands make light work, and it is a great chance to chat and meet other parents. And there will even be coffee :)

If you are able to help, even for a little while, please email: flhsptapresident@gmail.com

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer!
