Greetings Fairfield Court Elementary School Families.

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 19-20 school year at Fairfield Court Elementary, home of the Eagles.  We have a fun filled year of learning ahead of us, where students continue to grow on their journey as scholars and lifelong learners.  As an “Eagle” we dream big and prepare all students to soar into their next adventure.

Fairfield Court Elementary prides itself on embracing the best educational practices while providing a safe and nurturing learning environment so all students experience success.  The staff at Fairfield ensure that all students receive high quality instruction both in academics and social and emotional learning to meet the needs of each and every student.  As we move into the 19-20 school year, staff will continue to dedicate their focus on improving learning for all students through collaboration, aligned curricula, data collection and assessment.  Each student at Fairfield Court brings strengths to our community, and we will use these to build the foundation for their educational journey.  

As a school community we view parents as an essential partner in building a positive and successful path for the students we serve.  We encourage parents, guardians and family members to volunteer because together we can accomplish anything. With this in mind, please consider joining our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to help in supporting all our students and families.  Our PTA is a valuable ally that provides support to the great community of Fairfield Court. For more information about the PTA please reach out to the main office for details at 804-780-4639.

As I serve as the Fairfield Court principal I know that to reach our greatest heights we must have strong partnerships with families and community.  I am looking forward to developing strong bonds with students, families, and staff. Please feel free to seek me out and introduce yourself as we move grow together throughout the school year.  It is essential that all feel welcome at Fairfield Court, and we serve our community in the best way possible. 


Thank you for entrusting us with your students, they are the reason we are here.  We are looking forward to seeing you soon and having another successful year at Fairfield Court Elementary! Things have to look different and feel different, in order for true change to make a difference!
