Video: Unified Basketball Game

February 16, 2017

CPS and Special Olympics Virginia launched a pilot Unified basketball league in January with four of our county’s 12 middle schools. Special Olympics Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team as a way to break down barriers and build meaningful relationships among young people. The first game of the season featured the Tuckahoe Patriots versus the Fairfield Falcons. The game ended in a tie, but everybody was a winner on this day.

8th Grade Event Information

January 26, 2017

 

January 25, 2017

Dear 8th grade Falcon Families,

It is hard to believe that the school year is about half over, and with this comes the realization that your middle school experience is nearly at its end. We could not be more proud of the growth and achievements of the class of 2021. To celebrate these successes, the 8th grade team is hard at work planning several events.

The events are detailed below as are the requirements for attendance. We want each student to be able to fully participate, so we are sharing the guidelines now. Not only are these celebrations in honor of the hard work students put into their middle school career, but they also serve as an incentive for students to continue meeting our high academic and conduct standards.

 

  • 8th Grade Dance: scheduled for Friday, June 9th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. in the FMS gym. The requirements to attend are:
    • during the third marking period students cannot be suspended
    • during the fourth marking period students must not be suspended or be assigned in-school suspension
    • additionally, students cannot receive a failing grade for any course during the third marking period or be failing any class when grades are pulled on June 5, 2017
    • the third marking period begins 1/31/17 and the fourth marking period begins 4/10/17
  • 8th Grade Class Trip: scheduled for Tuesday June 13 from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. We are heading to Baltimore, MD for the aquarium and more.  Requirements to attend and payment are:
    • during the third marking period students cannot be suspended
    • during the fourth marking period students must not be suspended or be assigned in-school suspension
    • additionally, students cannot receive a failing grade for any course during the third marking period or be failing any class when grades are pulled on June 5, 2017
    • trip cost is $80.00
    • this pays for the buses and aquarium tickets admission only
    • student groups will have the option to visit the IMAX Theater and educational labs in the aquarium for an additional fee, as well as other local inner harbor attractions. These attractions are NOT included in the $80.00 payment.
    • payment options are available – if you would like to set up a payment plan please contact Dr. Tenia at mktenia@henrico.k12.va..us or 804-328-4020 for details
    • if you are interested in chaperoning please contact Dr. Tenia at mktenia@henrico.k12.va.us
  • 8th Grade Moving Up Practice and Ceremony: scheduled for Wednesday, June 14th during the school day and Thursday, June 15th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. (Location TBD)
  • Additional Information:
    • students cannot participate if they are suspended at the time of the ceremony
    • we will be having a cook-out the day of practice at an alternate location
    • more information will be coming home regarding the day of practice

 

Again, our goal is for all students to attend each of the events listed above. We also want students to continue to perform at a high level, as it concerns both their academic achievement and behavior.

We will provide more information, invitations, and permission slips for each individual event once we get closer to the big days; however, if you would like to set up a payment plan for the field trip please contact Dr. Tenia ASAP.

Fairfield staff and PTSA are working diligently to ensure that our 8th grade students have a memorable end to their FMS career. Should you have any further questions about these events, please contact Mrs. Hite at dlhite1@henrico.k12.va.us.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr. Arthur Raymond, III – Principal

Dr. Meagan Tenia – 8th Grade Associate Principal
