Planting Memories: A New Fair Acres Holiday Tradition

We are extremely excited to share a new tradition with you this holiday season – Planting Memories, an initiative created to provide a sense of connection and community to our students, their families and our staff!

Our vision for this new tradition is to create memories, while honoring the values that are represented by the holiday season: love, family, giving, and sharing.

We hope you will join us in a new Fair Acres tradition!

Here’s how it works:

  • Fair Acres purchases an Evergreen tree for each classroom.
  • The trees are placed at the designated pick-up areas for each classroom.
  • Leading up to the holidays, we invite families to create an ornament that students will hang on these special “Fair Acres Family Trees.”
  • In the spring, the trees will be planted around the campus, where the memories associated with the ornaments and holiday season, will live with it, on into the future!

This new tradition was born out of the desire to provide and maintain a close connection throughout the holiday season, in lieu of gathering for our typical celebrations. As always, our number one priority is to ensure everyone’s safety, as we strive to preserve what our families, students and alumni revere most about Fair Acres.

COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols

Rest assured that the entire staff at Fair Acres continues to take the COVID-19 crisis very seriously and follows the EEC and State guidelines on a daily basis.  We truly appreciate you support and assistance during these times.  As always, if you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Fair Acres is taking the following measures and has set the following COVID protocols in place to ensure that all children and staff are kept safe:

  • Hand sanitizing stations have been placed in the classrooms and around campus for when sinks are not available for washing.
  • Children use hand sanitizer before entering the buildings at drop off time.
  • Classrooms do not combine while inside the buildings.
  • Toys are disinfected throughout the day.
  • Classrooms are cleaned and disinfected throughout the day and at night by a
    professional cleaning company.
  • All classrooms are sprayed down regularly with our Evaclen Protexus Electrostatic sprayer, which gives us an edge on fighting COVID-19, influenzas and the common cold.
  • Use of a state-of-the-art REME Generator Advanced Oxidation system throughout our school. With this air purification system, micro-organisms can be reduced by over 99% (Click on the following links to learn more about the REME systems: https://youtu.be/Ke54GtDaarQ and https://youtu.be/90AtzUpK-TA
  • Handwashing/sanitizing is done after bathroom use, before snack and lunch, when
    children come in from outside and when children are done with the sensory tables.
  • Lunch boxes are stored in child’s cubbies not in a shared refrigerator.
  • All staff have been trained in safety requirements regarding COVID-19.
  • A plan is set for isolating any child or staff member who becomes sick or has
    developed symptoms of COVID-19 throughout the day until they can be picked up by a responsible
    person or drive themselves home. Parents will be notified immediately and will be
    asked to pick up child immediately.

Jumpstart’s 2021 “Read for the Record®”

On October 28th, the Pre-K, 5-day classes and Kindergarten class participated in Jumpstart’s “Read for the Record®,” the world’s largest shared reading experience!

Each year, Jumpstart selects a campaign book that fosters language and social-emotional development, honors the diversity in our world, has a strong narrative, and appeals to young children. That book is read across the country and around the world by adults and young readers on Read for the Record day.

As a part of this initiative, the children gathered on the outdoor stage to read this year’s campaign book, Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon, written by Kat Zhang and illustrated by Charlene Chua.

The children also collaborated to create Fair Acres’ very own magnificent patchwork dragon, which they proudly displayed in the Fair Building!

Part of a national campaign that was launched over a decade ago, “Read for the Record®” addresses the educational inequities that leave many children unprepared for Kindergarten, by:

  • Increasing awareness about the critical importance and impact of early literacy
  • Making high-quality children’s books accessible for all children
  • Providing support for Jumpstart for Young Children’s work with early learners in underserved communities across the country

Fair Acres Little Free Library

Fair Acres Families: we wanted to encourage you to utilize our very own “Little Free Library,” located outside the Sanborn building!

2021 Kindergarten Community Service Project: A Huge Success!

We couldn’t be happier to announce that this year’s Kindergarten community service project was a huge success…

The children counted and organized all of the donations they collected, and were filled with such joy to be able to send the following supplies to A Baby Center last week:

  • 169 pairs of pajamas
  • 1,521 diapers
  • 90 bottles of lotion, baby wash and shampoo

They couldn’t have done it without your support – thank you to all of our families for your part in making this important initiative as impactful as it was!

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.
