Fairfield City Schools will open a new elementary school and two new middle schools next year. The district needs your help in picking the names!
From school district officials:
Community members can participate in an electronic survey that is now open for your input. Paper copies of the survey will also be available to families who do not have access to the Internet. Copies will be distributed to students in grades PreK-12 to ensure their input is received.
The new elementary will be built on district-owned land on Holden Boulevard, across the street from Fairfield Senior High School. It will be the sixth elementary school in the district. The two middle schools will house grades 6-8. Students will attend either the current middle school on Nilles Road, or the building which is currently the Intermediate School on Donald Drive.
As part of a district restructuring, the elementary schools will house grades K-5.
A link for the survey is posted on this web announcement (see below), on parent email announcements, and our Facebook and Twitter pages. Once the suggestions are reviewed, another survey will be presented in December with the top suggestions for the community to consider. In January 2016, the winning name will be presented to the School Board.
Will it be yours? Take the survey at this link.
