KSD Battle of the Books is back!

The "Battle of the Books" is a reading incentive program in elementary, middle school, and high schools across the country. Find out more about the district sponsored program and the list of books to read for 2016-17 HERE.

There are two weekly study sessions during lunch (Monday & Thursday) for the teams that have signed up.  These are run by a parent volunteer. We would love more volunteers to help out (our librarian is a judge so cannot be involved with the study sessions).  We try and come up with fun ways to test the students knowledge of the books. We have played Bingo, Jeopardy and Trivia to name a few!  Email fw.bob.volunteer@gmail.com for more information.


Kindergarten Registration begins January 17th
 
Registration packets will be available beginning January 17, 2017 in the school office (Fairwood Elementary 16600 148th Ave SE). Students must be 5 by August 31st, 2017 in order to register for the 2017/18 school year. In addition to the fully completed registration packets, a birth certificate or passport showing proof of age, current utility (PSE bill or other) or lease showing current address within the Fairwood Elementary boundary and parent/guardian ID needs to be returned with the packet.

KINDERGARTEN ORIENTATION is April 18, 2017 @6:30pm
