REOPENING APPROACH

Kindness Counts!

As a way to promote and model kindness throughout the Fair Acres community, the Kindergarten class sends monthly “Kindness Connection” packets to each class that contains a book for their class library, a return letter template and some treats for their peers to enjoy!

     

Ms. Julie’s 5-day Pre-K class showing off the December Kindness Connection packet.

Ms. Tracy holds the November Kindergarten Kindness Connection packet, distributed in recognition of World Kindness Day, which is observed annually on November 13th.

We know that even a small act of kindness can make a big impact! Interested in joining Fair Acres in spreading kindness in 2021? Check out Kindness.org for some inspiring initiatives!

State-of-the-Art REME Air Purification System Installed in Every Classroom!

As COVID-19 continues to surge through the U.S., Fair Acres continues to make the health and safety of our students and staff our number one priority. Fair Acres has gone over and above the CDC, EEC, and state requirements by implementing extensive protocols for facility cleaning, personal hygiene and social distancing. We have also remodeled our classrooms to ensure smaller, isolated classes as well as redesigned our curriculum to include extensive outdoor learning with our new educational PODS.

The pandemic has brought many changes to our lives and we would like to acknowledge the support, generosity, and willingness to adapt by all our Fair Acres Families. Truly it has been a total team effort to get to where we are today. With that said, I would like to thank our newest member of the Fair Acres Family, Alex and Adrianna Braga for their generous donation. During Thanksgiving break, Braga Bros Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning teamed up with Fair Acres to install three state of the art REME Generator Advanced Oxidation Systems throughout our school. With this air purification system, micro-organisms can be reduced by over 99%! Gases, VOCS, odors and dust will also be reduced via charged Advanced Oxidation Plasma carried throughout each classroom for a continuous purification process. This along with our Evaclean Protexus Electrostatic sprayer gives us the edge on fighting COVID-19, influenza, and the common cold!

Once again, thank you Braga family and all our Fair Acres Families for your continued support. I know I speak for our entire team when I say we will continue to work hard to ensure a positive experience for all during these unique times.

Stay positive and be heathy!

Curt and Jodi

A portion of all the proceeds will go back to our school – your support makes a difference!

The more your children read with you at home, the better their comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency.

Check out this reading research and find more information on how you can support your child’s reading life at home, here.

Please mark your calendars to visit our Book Fair online and help your child discover their next favorite book.

Adios Amigo!

At the end of October, the Fair Acres family said “goodbye” to our beloved horse, Amigo. Embarking on an exciting adventure, Amigo traveled down to Georgia, where he was reunited with Miss Molly (Curt and Jodi’s daughter) and the staff at his new home.

Amigo came to Fair Acres and joined the Larson family 12 years ago. Molly, who was a Junior in high school at the time, welcomed Amigo with love and excitement. Her passion for animals, especially horses, led her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Molly completed her veterinary studies recently at the University of Pennsylvania, and is now in Athens, Georgia doing a three-year residency in Internal Equine medicine. A 1998 graduate of Fair Acres, we knew Molly would go on to do amazing things! Realizing her dream of becoming a veterinarian, Molly felt it was time to have Amigo with her on a full-time basis again.

Over the years, Amigo has brought the Fair Acres Family so much happiness and joy. From visiting him at his barn, to feeding him apples picked form our apple trees, to observing his veterinary check-ups, and watching Miss Jodi interact with him in his arena – we will never forget the memories that we have all made with Amigo.

Although we will miss our friend Amigo, we are so happy that he is enjoying his new home and we wish him all the best!

Kindergarten Community Service Project

We are so excited to share this year’s Kindergarten Community Service Project!

A Baby Center is a Hyannis non-profit organization that helps ensure the good health and safety of babies in need on Cape Cod and the Islands.

Watch the Video: Weather Station at Fair Acres Country Day School – Science and Learning!

For any project, gathering data is vital – how else can we understand the results of our efforts? For those connected to Shubael Pond, it is important for us to be able to measure how much wastewater and rainwater is flowing into the ground. It is also critical to understand and record the pond’s water temperatures and levels. That’s where Laura Erban, a scientist from U.S. EPA ORD, comes in. Laura installed a weather station this past August at Fair Acres Country Day School in Marstons Mills.  This weather station was designed to collect, and record data every fifteen minutes and this data can then be viewed remotely. In addition to being a great location for the weather station, it also presented a great opportunity to teach our students about water quality and how water flows. When Laura visited the weather station in October, she met up with our Kindergarten students to discuss the weather station and what it does. Not only did our students have great questions for Laura, they impressed her with their understanding of the water cycle — evaporation, condensation, and precipitation…

News from our Kindergarten

The Kindergarten class has been learning about the water cycle, and the importance of water as one of Earth’s natural resources! As part of one of their interactive lessons, the students welcomed special visitors from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Barnstable Clean Water Coalition to share their expertise and insights with them. The weather station that was recently installed on campus, pictured below, is being used as an instrument to measure rainfall and water temperature.

“I had the pleasure of speaking with Ms. Linda’s kindergarten class about the measurements we’re making at Fair Acres. We have a station by the garden that is measuring rainfall and water temperature and levels in Shubael Pond. These data will contribute to a nearby study of enhanced septic systems that can remove nitrogen from effluent. I was so impressed by how much the children knew about where their water comes from, how it is used, and where it goes in the landscape around them. I look forward to visiting again soon!” ~EPA Staff Memeber
