Important Meeting

All Fairview Parents are invited to attend a special meeting that has been set up by Fairview PTA with Dr. Steipleman and Linda Quingley at Fairview Elementary on Monday, May 2, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. At the meeting, the district’s budget will be discussed as it relates to impending changes at Fairview. If you have questions prior to the meeting, please contact PTA President Sheila Chapman at

If you haven’t already heard, the School Board has proposed a number of changes at Fairview next year. Assistant Principal Adrienne Patton will be transferred to Derby Ridge. One fifth grade teaching position will also be cut from Fairview. For next year (2011-2012 school year), this means that each of the three remaining fifth grade classrooms will have almost 30 students. At the meeting on May 2, the Fairview PTA will continue dialogue with Dr. Steipleman and Linda Quingley in an attempt to change this course of action and/or minimize the effect it will have on our children. Please come and show your support and ask questions. The best chance we have for combating these cuts at our school is when we unite together and make our voices heard.

Get a sneak peek of world class swimming at the Mizzou Aquatic Center! And, Active Kids' Club info

Need an outing this week to remind you that warmer days are coming and swimsuit season is near? Get a sneak peek of world class swimming at the Mizzou Aquatic Center.

Swimming’s Olympic and World Champions hit the water at the Mizzou Aquatic Center, Friday, February 18th through Monday, Feb 21, 2011 to compete in the Missouri Grand Prix. Spectators in the Mizzou Aquatic Center are closer to the action and the athletes than at any other contest of this caliber. It is an amazing opportunity for Mid-Missourians to experience an Olympic-style event with world–class athletes at an affordable price.

As an added bonus, we would like to invite all elementary and middle school aged children and their families to the Mizzou Aquatic Center for a no charge sneak peak, Thursday, February 17th from 5pm-8pm to watch these elite swimmers prepare for the weekend’s races in a relaxed swimming environment.

Please enter through the East Entrance of the MU Student Recreation Complex, located on Hitt and Rollins.

For more questions, please contact Carrie Steuber at or 573.884.3795

Also, interested in a new after-school activity for your child? Register him/her for the Active Kids Club. The Club meets every Monday at Fairview after school from 3:50 - 5:00pm in the gym doing a variety of sport activities for children in 3rd,4th,5th grades. The best way for parents to sign their kids up is to call Parks and Recreation at 874-7460 or register online

Fall is in the air!

I know I always start off with a comment about the weather and I'd like to do something different... but can't do it on such a beautiful, crisp day as today! It's football/apple-picking/pumpkin-carving weather for sure! I love it!
  • Passport Book Sales begin next week. This is a great fundraiser for our school and an opportunity for savings to anyone who buys a book. I know our family always earns back what we spent on the book with our savings at Hy-Vee alone! Watch for the books in your child's backpack next week.
  • Early Dismissal on Wednesday, October 20. School will let out at 1:15 p.m.
  • It's the time of year that many think about ways to help the less fortunate. Due to budget cuts, The Salvation Army is unable to pay people bell ringers this year. They need volunteers to do this very important job. Contact Cindy Chapman at, 442-3229 x225.
  • Save the date: the PTA's next wellness event is November 4, 2010 at 6-8pm at Empire Roller Rink. Watch for more details!
Super HeroBe a Superhero for Columbia Public Schools and help them break a World Record!
