PTA MEETING - THURSDAY, MAR. 6th, 7:00 PM IN THE POD
Understanding SOL Assessments. All Virginia public school students in grades 3-8 are assessed yearly in math and reading as well as other content areas. Join us for an opportunity to discuss these assessments, learn how teachers prepare students for these tests (without killing the love of learning), and what parents can do to provide support.
InNOVATION AND iNVENTION FAIR
Fairview’s Second Innovation and Invention Fair will be coming soon! The I&I Fair encourages children to think of a new product based on their perception of market demand (invention) or improve an existing product (innovation). Unfortunately, the grant that funded the fair last year and in previous years for Clifton elementary is no longer available.
To raise money to host the fair, Team VI LLC and McGuirk USA LLC are hosting a cocktail reception at the Mason Inn's Well bar, located on George Mason University's Fairfax campus on 2/11/14 from 5:30-8:00 pm. Tickets to the reception are $45, and come with your first round of beer or wine and hors d'oeuvres. A portion of your ticket cost is tax-deductible, and you or your organization will receive recognition at the fair.
There will be an information meeting later in February for parents of students who are interested in participating. Date and Time will be announced shortly.
