    Dear Faubion Families,


    February will be a busy month here at Faubion school!  Over the next few weeks, our student body will be preparing a Black History Celebration which will be performed on February 23, 2018 at 1:30 p.m.  Our students will have the opportunity to share their learning or sing a song that celebrates African American culture.  Kindergarten through fifth grade will be performing.  Classroom teachers will continue the learning in their classrooms through conversations and exploration. 

    It is important to note that while we are highlighting African Americans and signifant historical events during February, we recognize that one cannot separate Black history from American history as a whole.  Though we are choosing to highlight certain African Americans through Black History Month, it is important to us that students learn about famous, and not as well known, African Americans through our regular curriculum and their own exploration of history. 

    We are also be celebrating Valentine’s Day with our annual “Friendship Dance.”  Family members are invited to come dance with their students during their assigned grade level time.  Please be sure to sign in at the office and then meet the class in the gym.  Friendship Dance times are publiciczied on the Friendship Dance flyer attached.  We would love to have parents volunteer to help us turn the Faubion gym into a fun-filled friendship zone with lots of hearts and streamers!  If you are interested in assisting in decorating, please contact the Faubion office at 503-916-5686. 

    The month of February is also when we begin looking ahead ot the 2018-19 school year.  We are holding two special events for families with incoming pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.  If you know a family with a student who will be 3, 4 or 5 years old by September 1, please pass on a special invitation to visit Faubion.  Please pass on the PK & Kindergarten Open House flyer and encourage them to contact Faubion as soon as possible.

    February is also cold and flu season and we have been hearing many questions about when to send students to school. Luckily, here at Faubion we have plenty of hand soap and tissues to help with runny noses and coughs. We want your child here each and every day!

    You only need to keep your child home if their symptoms include:

    • Fever higher than 100.5
    • Vomiting 
    • Diarrhea (more than 2 loose stools in 24 hours OR sudden onset of loose stools)
    • New skin rash, sores, or wounds (not previously diagnosed by a health care provider)
    • Live lice infestation


    Please help us keep our school healthy by encouraging your children to wash their hands frequently, cover their coughs, and avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth.

    Lastly, have you checked Faubion’s Facebook, Instragram or Twitter lately?  We are posting great examples of learning at Faubion on an almost daily basis and would love to have you follow us! 

    Yours in Education, 

    Principal McCalley, Assistant Principal Williams and Assistant Principal Gregoricka
