Last spring, the Coca-Cola Atlantic Bottling Company approached local Walmarts with a promotion. Through this promotion, Walmart would sell Powerade through the summer. For each case of Powerade that was sold, Coke would donate a certain percent to a local school or charity choice made by Walmart. In Fairfield, Walmart decided to name Fairfield Schools as their beneficiary. On Thursday, Nov. 16th, John Grunwald attended a check ceremony at the Fairfield Walmart. At that time, Coke presented a check to Fairfield Schools on behalf of Walmart in the amount of $162.00.
Fairfield Community Schools wishes to thank Walmart and the Atlantic Bottling Company for their support.
The students in the FHS Art classes have great "Auras" and they want to share them with you!!
Have you ever looked at a piece of art and thought to yourself..."Why did they paint this scene?" or "What medium did they use?" These questions go unanswered unless you can ask the artist themselves. Well, now you have the opportunity to have that happen! Utilizing the "Aurasma" app that is available from your app store, you can scan the artwork in the hall and listen to a short video from many of the student artists. They will explain what they used to create their artwork as well as maybe some information about their inspiration.
Directions are listed on the wall near their artwork to assist you in downloading the app and finding their Auras. Enjoy this added feature to the FHS Art Gallery.
Fairfield Third Graders Visit Van Buren County
On Wednesday, October 18th, all Fairfield Third Graders went on a field trip to Van Buren County. They started their day in Bentonsport learning about what life was like long ago. Students saw a potter, a blacksmith, some Indian artifacts, went on a nature walk, and saw the bridge that crosses over the Des Moines River. Students then enjoyed a sack lunch at the shelter house before heading to Keosauqua. While in Keosauqua students were able to visit a log cabin, a one-room schoolhouse, the Pearson House, and play some old schoolyard games. Fairfield Glove, of Fairfield, donated shirts for each class to wear and also paid the donation to the Pearson House. All third graders appreciate their generosity in allowing them to expand their learning outside of the school. Thank you Fairfield Glove.
