Have You Heard????

We all get very busy in our day to day and sometimes miss the amazing things going on around us. Today's post is a tribute to our students and staff and the amazing things that have occurred over the last few weeks.  Have You Heard.....?

Have you heard that PROM 2016 was an UNBELIEVABLE EVENING? Students arrived at His Lordships in Berkeley to a red carpet and paparazzi. The girls were as glamorous as ever. The most popular style of the evening were the floor length gowns. I heard from multiple people at the venue that our students were, "The most well dressed prom students they had ever seen." The guys were equally stunning and dressed to impress. I have to say that the the sparkly red shoes that one male prom goer wore were definitely my favorite.

Have you heard that we raised $300 for Together We Rise, the NEU Charity of the Year? ASB students, Val Quijas and Regina Williams promoted the fundraiser for a two week period. Loose change is all that was asked of students and staff. They were able to raise $300 that will help to support foster youth through the non profit, Together We Rise.

Have you heard that Chef Tom Dickinson has been working all year with our FA and Vocational Ed students? He has been leading the students through a culinary experience that they will never forget. A culminating activity last week was a cooking challenge that resembled the ever popular Food Network show Chopped. 

Have you heard that our TPP students wrote and published an original book? The senior students in Lynn Bocca's TPP class wanted to create a book as their senior project. Each student wrote a memoir from their life that could be shared with elementary students to motivate and inspire them. The students researched how to publish a book, created a GoFundMe account, raised the $500 needed, and edited and published their original work. They will be providing copies to our feeder elementary schools. You too can be the proud owner of Finding Ourselves. Just go to and enter the ISBN #978-1-365-06410-4. 

Our ONE goal: To graduate every Fairfield High Student and to ensure that they leave FHS college and career ready!!! 
Inspire, Engage, Excite, Lead, Foster, Create, Empower!!

Many more great things are in store for Fairfield High!

Continue to be innovative, creative, and a model of excellence!
