From Your Principal

Dear Fairfield Families,

Welcome to Fairfield Elementary! I hope that you had a restful and rejuvenating summer.  As we begin another school year, I am reminded of an African proverb; “it takes an entire village to raise a child” which seems fitting when I consider the accomplishments achieved and those to come!  Your commitment to your child’s education past and present are good examples of what is required of that village to achieve success.  Therefore, one of the goals of this school year is to help build and support an even stronger village by relying on our families who are our most important partners to ensure a quality education for every student!

As the principal at Fairfield Elementary, I am thrilled to be a part of a school community where family members are visible and actively engaged, as well as an integral component of our school community.  I am honored and privileged to be a part of a dynamic community where teachers and staff cultivate an environment where students achieve and believe in themselves and their school.

Another integral part of our school climate is our ROAR expectations. We expect our students to be Respectful, Orderly, Attentive, and Role models. Please work with our staff to reinforce these lifelong expectations for our children.

Please know that I welcome your participation, support, and efforts as they are greatly valued and appreciated.  We are in this together!  Wishing you a wonderful upcoming year of success!


Ruth M. Stickel, Principal
