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.

1950s theme of Sock Hop

Celebrating the end of the fifth six weeks, students enjoyed a Sock Hop for their Eagle Buck parties. Students earn Eagle Bucks for various things throughout the six weeks. This time, girls and boys were encouraged to dress in 50's clothing for the Sock Hop theme. This group of fourth grade girls nailed the 50's look with their poodle skirts, penny loafers, and hairstyles! Pictured are (from left) Kayden Dallas, Abby Freeman, Linsey Cockerell, and Kalli Richardson. Art teacher Janie Haydon volunteered her time painting students' faces.
