Several projects will be starting soon at FISD campuses including a handicap platform at the football field. School board trustees unanimously voted to accept bids from Supreme Fixture Company for a junior high freezer at $40,689 and a high school freezer for $44,140 with a 30 percent down payment.

Superintendent Tony Price said he will ask the company to begin June 1.

The board also agreed to begin rehabilitate the old weight room for junior high students to use during inclement weather. Price said the floor needs to be redone, which will cost approximately $10,000.

In honor of Case Robinson, Fairfield Intermediate School is challenging each homeroom to make a 100-link kindness chain as part of their Random Acts of Kindness (RAOK) project. Robinson, a fifth grader, passed away recently in a tragic ATV accident.

“Case was a respectful, kind, and enthusiastic student,” said FIS Principal Shetonia Scires in an email. “He never met a stranger and always had a smile on his face.”

The school created the RAOK in his honor to spread kindness throughout the school and community. The school created the challenge for students to have something positive on which to focus in the days following Robinson’s death.

Authors welcomed at Fairfield Library

Fairfield students recently penned books as a special project, which are now displayed at the Fairfield Library. Library patrons can scan the QR code on any book to hear the story read in the author's voice or watch a movie based on the book and created by the author. Last week, students brought their parents to the library on a special Book Mobile bus, which shuttled 1st through 5th grades over from their campuses. Pictured is Library Director Gary Wiggins enjoying a book with author Anna Allen.

4th graders enjoy Food for America

Fairfield fourth graders learned where their food comes from at the annual Food for America event held last week at the fairgrounds. Students learned facts about dairy products, watched a dairy cow be milked, toured an ambulance and a fire truck, learned about recycling, FFA and Young Farmers, and much more. While learning about snakes and alligators, the students were able to see and touch live snakes and a baby alligator. Volunteers from the community – including EMS, Texas Parks and Wildlife, and firefighters – donated their time to this yearly event sponsored by the Fairfield Young Farmers and FFA.
