F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter at Eielson Air Force Base
At the April 1, 2014 Fairbanks North Star Borough Board of Education meeting, the board passed a resolution supporting the stationing of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter at Eielson Air Force Base.
School operations on Eielson Air Force Base have been an integral part of the district since we assumed responsibility of base schools in 1975, and we currently operate three schools on base. We're committed to meeting the educational needs of Eielson Air Force Base families, now, and in the future.
No other region in the country can offer the United States Air Force as strategic, cost effective and welcoming alternative for stationing the F-35 Lighting II aircraft. The Fairbanks School District joins the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly and the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce in supporting the stationing of the aircraft at Eielson Air Force Base.
Principal's Message April 2014
Dear Caribou Community,
March is almost gone and April is moving in. There is still snow on the ground, but there is hope for green grass and maybe even a few hearty flowers coming our way soon!
April is Standards Based Assessment (SBA) month. All students in grades 3-10 take these assessments each year during the first week of the month. The assessment involves 3 days of testing. One day is given to each of three subjects: Reading, Writing, and Math. These tests are untimed and students are encouraged to take all the time they need. They have the entire day to show off what they can do.
In preparation for this 3-day assessment there are a couple of things you can do at home to help your child to do their best. Encourage your child to get plenty of sleep. Their brains will need lots of sleep to recharge for the next day’s assessment. Make sure they get a good breakfast and try to provide protein snacks for your child. Feeding the brain will help. Encourage them to do their best each day. Students often think these tests don’t really matter, but it really is their time to shine!
Universal Screening will happen on the 23rd of April. This will be the third and final time this school year for the reading probe.
Along with all the testing, April brings concerts, field trips and lots of other interesting activities and learning opportunities. April promises to be a great month.
