Fairfield High School is proud to be an official No Excuses University school! The 6 principles below will guide our vision as a school in preparing our students for successful, productive lives:

1.     Committed: We believe that students deserve to be educated in a way that prepares them for college if they so choose to attend. We also believe that we the school, have the power to make this opportunity a reality.

 

2.    Courageous: To display courage is to show strength in the face of fear. We do this by ignoring those who try to tell us that our dreams for our students are unrealistic and impossible. We ask for forgiveness instead of permission. We hold one another accountable and we come together as a critical mass to confront the status-quo.

 

3.     Collaborative: Our collaborative spirit is grounded on the idea that we each have unique strengths as well as different weaknesses. We make the time to work with one another in a way that maximizes accountability while minimizing anxiety. This helps us to achieve greater success for our students as a team, while at the same time promoting balance in our lives as individuals.

 

4.    Creative: We are innovative and love to explore new ways to get results for our students. Experimentation is not a suggestion, but rather an expectation of an No Excuses University Pro. When we find success through our creativity, we celebrate as a staff and seek ways to replicate the results elsewhere.

 

5.    Character Centered: Character is doing the right thing when no one is watching… this goes double for adults. We are consistent with our rules and methods for teaching behavior as we take responsibility for all students.

 

6.     College and Career Crazy: College readiness is a tie that binds us as students, parents, and staff. Because of this we reveal the benefits of a college degree to all students in practical and achievable ways that offer hope for a better future. Our network exists to shatter the myths that a student has to be rich or privileged to go to college.

Principal's Message

Good evening Falcon Families, this is Kristen Witt calling with this week's announcements.
 
We have had a FANTASTIC start to the school year! We had our Club Rush 2014 held at lunch on Friday. Students were able to see all the club and sports offerings and had an opportunity to find out what clubs/sports they may be interested in joining this year. 
 
This Tuesday, August 19th, is picture day. Students will take their yearbook photo and receive their new 2014-2015 student ID. As a reminder student ID's must be worn at all times on a lanyard around the neck.
 
Our football team is hard at work preparing for their home opener game against Woodland scheduled for September 5th. Mark your calendars and come out to support Falcon Football.
 
Our college and career tech has organized a monumental College Fair scheduled for September 25th from 10:00-2:00. We will have over 15 colleges present at the fair. The representatives from each college will be straight from the admissions office, so students will be able to get answers to their admissions questions right then and there. A few of the colleges that will be present are: FDIM San Francisco, UC Davis, CSU Chico, CSU Long Beach, Solano Community College plus many more!!!
 
Continue to remind your son/daughter that school begins promptly at 8:00 AM. Students should arrive on campus by 7:45 to ensure they are to their first period class by 8:00 AM.
 
Have a wonderful evening and a great week!!

Good evening Falcon Families, this is Kristen Witt calling with a few updates.
 
Today we had a great start to the new year. It was a day full of excitement and high energy. 
 
You have probably heard from your students about the dress code, ID, and cellphone policies. The FSUSD adopted dress code policy is in affect. Students out of compliance will be asked to change into PE clothes or loaner clothes. All students must wear their ID's. New picture ID's will be issued next week on Picture Day, August 19th. Cellphones are not allowed out for personal use in the classroom. Students do have the privilege to use their cellphones during passing period and lunch. 
 
ALL students will be receiving a student planner in their advisory class tomorrow. This is a yearlong calendar for them to keep track of homework, tests, upcoming events, and stay organized.
 
We did a great job of getting students into their classes by 8:00 AM today. Please remind your son/daughter that class starts at 8:00 and it would be best to arrive on campus by 7:45 to make sure he/she is on time.
 
Thank you for your partnership and have a wonderful evening.
