A Message from Dr. Krawczyk

                                           Message From The Principal

Dear Fairforest Families,

My name is Stephen Krawczyk. This year I will be my 18th as the principal of Fairforest Elementary School. On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year!
When my son was in elementary school, I know that his safety both physically and emotionally was of the utmost importance to me. As your child’s principal, I will work to create a school environment where your child’s physical and emotional safety is paramount.
In order for a student to be successful in school, he/she needs the school and his/her home to be partners. Having a strong partnership will make a world of difference in your child’s education. As partners in your child’s education, we share the responsibility for your child’s success.
As principal of Fairforest Elementary School, I will:
o do all I can to keep your child safe while at school
o remember that each child is extremely special and has unique gifts
o love your child and treat him/her how I wanted my son treated while he was in elementary school
o make all decisions that are in the best interest of the children of Fairforest Elementary School rather than what is most convenient for school staff and/or parents
o require teachers to provide high quality classroom instruction
o require teachers to communicate regularly with you
o require teachers to provide individualized instruction that recognizes learning styles and meets individual needs and to coordinate with other teachers when necessary
As your partner, I ask that you:
o make sure your child comes to school on time and ready to learn
o read to or with your child each day
o communicate with your child’s teacher
o establish a home learning environment that sets forth routines for study time, bedtime and other daily activities
o attend parent/teacher conferences, workshops, and other school meetings
o help your child take responsibility for his/her actions
I look forward to working together as we both work to ensure that your child receives the education that he/she needs and deserves. Please take some time today, and throughout the year, to review the policies and procedures found within this handbook. Doing so will provide you with many answers to questions you may have regarding our school and its policies.

Dr. Stephen Krawczyk
