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.
