Mrs. Jester came to Mrs. Carenza’s first grade class on Monday to share her Native American culture with them. She showed them clothing and artifacts from her family. She and her daughter, Tempe, performed a dance for the class. The students really enjoyed seeing how Mrs. Jester’s ancestors used animal bones and teeth to decorate their clothing.
The Art Show was an amazing success!
April Shine Award Winner Naomi is a student that “Shines” in the classroom and in the community. Naomi shows trustworthiness everyday by being a calm, quiet leader in the classroom. She is generous, can be counted on by her peers and teachers, and has a steadfast moral compass that continues beyond Fairbrook with her volunteer work outside of school. We are proud to highlight this humblest of leaders, Naomi, as our Fifth Grade Shine Award recipient for April 2023. When talking about Naomi it was hard to pick just a few characteristics to describe her. She demonstrates so well all the traits that make an outstanding Fairbrook student. Naomi’s kind, compassionate nature is evident in everything she does. She is quick with a genuine smile to everyone she meets. When Naomi speaks in her quiet confident voice people listen. Naomi shows with her everyday actions what it truly means to be a caring person, someone people can count on because her actions show it.

Second Graders in Mrs. Newman's class researched famous people throughout history. Then they wrote a report (a pamphlet or a pizza box presentation) and presented it to the class. Great job!
We want to thank everyone for a fantastic Science Fair. Our judges from the Air Force Institute of Technology and Air Force Research Laboratory were very impressed by the presentations, the diversity of topics, and most importantly- Our Students! More than one judge commented on how well our students presented themselves. Scores were out of 40 points and each student was judged by two judges. The final score was an average of the two judging scores. We had a total of 62 Science Fair Projects. The breakdown in scores were 20 Superior Ratings, 35 Excellent Ratings, and 7 rated "Good." Please Congratulate all our Science Fair Participants. Their hard work was very evident and they all deserve the recognition for a job well done.
