White City celebrates integrity at this month’s citizen of the month ceremony. A student in each class was selected by the teacher for demonstrating the character trait of integrity. Integrity is showing good moral character, being honest, doing the right thing consistently and meeting challenges with a good attitude. Wildcats, we are so very proud of you!

Words Get All Dressed Up at Fairlawn Elementary’s Vocabulary Parade!

Words Get All Dressed Up at Fairlawn Elementary’s Vocabulary Parade!

As part of Fairlawn Elementary’s ongoing effort to increase word recognition among our students, students and staff paraded through the school halls dressed as a host of costumed words.  Families and friends laughed, applauded, and were amazed by our students’ ingenuity!  From pond to precipitation, humble to boastful, students represented words from  science, social studies, math, language arts and character education curriculum.

The parade concept is based on Debra Frasier’s book, Miss Alaineus, A Vocabulary Disaster, where a student confuses the work ‘miscellaneous” for the person, Miss Alaineus.  In this hilarious story, great embarrassment is assuaged by turning this mortifying mistake into a winning costume at the Vocabulary Parade.  At Fairlawn, every student is a winner of the grand prize—- an enriched vocabulary!
