A small group of parents have worked hard to open a new Christ-centered school for Freestone County children. Faith Academy of Freestone County is slated to open this fall and is currently taking applications for students. The school will provide a quality, Christian-based education to students and develop the whole child – mind, body, and spirit. This non-profit school seeks to partner with parents, teachers, and the community for returning God to education with a chapel and Bible classes.

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.
