The Fairfield Family STEM festival is a free, hands-on event, promoted to students in 3rd through 8th grades. The STEM festival had 12 separate organizations with over 50 volunteers. Multiple school districts brought students to see the different presentations. FHS students shared information about the PLTW courses offered at the High School and had three hands on activities for the participants to get involved in. Bryanna Popejoy and Alexis Jones held a design contest

FMS Participates in Pennies for Patients Fundraiser
Since 1994, millions of dollars have been raised in pennies and other spare change by more than 10 million elementary, middle and high school students throughout the country. The funds, collected during a three-week period, benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Everyone who participates is a winner!
Students across the country are collecting pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the Pennies for Patients campaigns benefiting the Society.
In the Pennies for Patients campaign, the class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party. Prizes such as computers, electronics and sports equipment are presented to the top schools in each area. The Pennies for Patients campaign began in the Society's North Carolina Chapter in 1995.
Pennies for Patients will run March 6 - March 17 at FMS!

Conference Format Grades 6-12
The conference format for students in 6th through 12th grade is different than the format for grades Pre-K - 5th. For parents attending High School conferences, you may pick up student schedules, report cards and building maps in the High School office. All of the teachers will be in their respective rooms and there are not specific scheduled times for each teacher. You will need to just go to the rooms of the teachers you would like to visit and wait if there happens to be a line.
For parents attending Middle School conferences, you may pick up your son/daughter's report cards and IEP reports from a welcome table in the front lobby area. All of the teachers for grades 6-8 will be located at tables in the commons/lunch room area or the library. You can then proceed to each table to visit with particular teachers of your choice. Shared teachers or specials teachers that also serve 5th grade students might be located in other places of the building depending on their needs. Coffee, cookies and snacks will be provided for families attending conferences.
Conference Format Grades Pre-K - 5th
The teachers for students Pre-K through 5th grade will be in their respective rooms. The conferences run in 15 minute sessions. Parents are asked to please access the school website here. For help signing in and registering for a conference time, please watch the following video.
On Friday, February 17th, Fairfield Community Schools entered a new age by publishing a mobile app that can be downloaded free for any patrons of the district as well as their friends and families.
In January, Fairfield TLC Tech Coaches, Justin Copeland and Cole Boatright attended an AEA Technology Integration meeting in Ottumwa. One presentation that day was about creating mobile apps for your district. Cole and Justin came back to the district that afternoon with excitement as they had already started to create a fairfield app.
For about the last month, both staff members have worked hard and put in much time to create an app for the district that went live in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The Fairfield Admin Team was excited about the app when it was recently revealed to them also. Each of the building administrators and the technology department have split the cost to help make this possible for the district patrons.
Justin and Cole plan to keep working to improve the app and its functionality. New ideas for the app will be considered. In fact, even on the day the app was officially launched, a request came in wondering if the school app could link to the Campus mobile app and have a seamless integration between each of them. Keep the ideas and suggestions coming.
Currently, at the touch of a button you can access:
One of the best aspects of this app is that is FREE. It was an easy decision to make this a free tool to all students, staff, parents, community members and anyone else who wants to keep up on the latest news from Fairfield Community School District.
To install the app, please visit the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and search for: Fairfield CSD. When you search, you should see the familiar orange and black trojan head. Install and stay informed!!
Please encourage parents, staff, students, board members, & community members to download the FREE Fairfield CSD App!
After just 5 1/2 hours, the app has already been downloaded 64 times!!!
