! Official Redesign Release
Thank you for supporting Web Team throughout our responsive site redesign -- a multi-year initiative to overhaul the Fairview website’s original interface. We plan to release our final product over the upcoming spring break to minimize any effects on school operations. During this time, we will officially end support for the old desktop and mobile versions.
Web Team decided to make significant visual changes to the existing redesign to accommodate various structural adjustments to the site and correct other minor issues. We would like to assure the community that these changes are intentional and should not affect site functionality (ability for staff to create assignments, edit content, etc.).
As with any major website developments, the team anticipates minor bugs and glitches. If you would like to report a bug, please use our feedback form or email [email protected].

We appreciate your understanding and support!
! Families of 10th and 11th Grade Students taking PSAT 10 or SAT
Attention: Parents of 10th and 11th Grade Students taking PSAT 10 or SAT students have the chance to complete the College Board Student Data Questionnaire (SDQ). The SDQ is voluntary and optional for students. See an example of the SDQ here.. One of the primary reasons students may choose to complete the SDQ is to voluntarily disclose their information to the College Board’s Student Search Service®. The Student Search Service helps to connect students to college and scholarship opportunities that align to their interests. Students who choose to participate have complete discretion regarding any voluntary information they provide. The SDQ asks students for basic demographic information (name, registration number, school, state student ID, sex, and date of birth) that is required to match the student’s questionnaire to their test registration, along with optional questions about the student and their interests. Information gathered from the optional questions will be used for a variety of purposes, including analysis to ensure that the exams are fair for all groups, for group reporting, to connect the student with potential colleges or scholarship opportunities, and for research.
If a student wants to participate in the Student Search Service students must fill out and sign a consent form available in the counseling office, and complete the Student Data Questionnaire (SDQ), by Wednesday April 3. For more information students should see Jill Pries in the Fairview administration office.
! Fairview Youth Sports Camp
This April, Fairview National Honor Society is hosting the first ever Fairview Youth Sports Camp, a beginner to intermediate level sports camp for kids in grades 5-7 in the Boulder area run by Fairview’s sports teams.This year, the camp will feature soccer, basketball, baseball, and softball, with the hopes to expand this list in the future. This camp is in support of the giveSPORTS program of A Precious Child, a program which gives underprivileged kids the opportunity to play the same sports we have the opportunity to play everyday here at Fairview. The camp tuition for participants is 100% free, but in lieu of this we ask that participants bring 1-5 items of new or gently used sports equipment to donate to the giveSPORTS program. Basically, this event is as much as about playing sports as it is giving other kids the opportunity to do the same.
There are two ways you can register for the camp: visit the camp's Facebook Page by searching "Fairview Youth Sports Camp" (@fhsysc2019) and register via the Camp's Facebook Event or directly register by clicking here. Space is limited, so make sure to register ASAP!
If you have any questions, just email camp coordinator Charlie Cappelletti at [email protected].

! COURSE SELECTION UPDATE
Course Selection 2019-20
It’s hard to believe the time for choosing next year’s courses is just around the corner! Please know that FHS students will be receiving lots of information during upcoming weeks in order to make these decisions. In late February, students in all grade levels will hear a presentation from counselors about the course selection process, hear a review of graduation requirements, will have the opportunity to ask questions, and will receive next year’s course request sheets. After these materials are distributed, students will be receiving teacher and parent input about the best course of study for next year in both academic and elective classes. All-School Course Selection Day is Friday, March 1 - the day designated for teachers to stop instruction and give specific information and input about classes for next year. Courses will then be selected via Infinite Campus during the first few weeks of March. FHS Counselors will be assisting students with entering their courses in computer labs. Just a reminder, there is extensive information about the FHS curricular offerings on the FHS website, including the FHS Academic Planning Guide and Course Description Guide. Thank you for understanding that it’s not possible for counselors to meet individually with all 380 students on their caseloads! We have a proven history of students being successfully placed in courses every year and we are confident that students, teachers, and parents will work collaboratively to make these decisions.
! Lockers for next year 2019-2020 - all students
Locker requests for 2019-2020 for all students, including incoming 9th grade students, and seniors requesting senior balcony lockers should be submitted using this form. Senior balcony locker requests are limited to the first 152 seniors who request them (76 lockers).
! ATTENTION RISING 9th GRADERS ---- WHAT COMES NEXT….
All Rising 9th Grade Course Selection Forms must be received no later than 3pm on Friday, March 8. If your forms were not collected during the Middle School visits by FHS counselors, please drop off the form at the front desk at Fairview HS by 3/8. All forms must be signed by parents and teachers. New Freshman forms can be found on the Fairview website on the Course Selection page, under the Counseling/Career Center tab.
Please plan to attend Registration for Rising 9th grade on May 22 from 4-6pm, or on May 23 from 1-4pm. On that day, students will receive their assigned courses and have student ID pictures taken, and they will have the opportunity to purchase books. Prior to attending Registration, please make sure you have completed your ADU (Annual Data Update), and filled out all required paperwork online. Those forms will be available on our website beginning in early May. If you would like a locker, please make your request online.
Class schedules will be available on Infinite Campus mid-August. Student IDs and locker assignments will be handed out on your first day of school in the fall.
If you have a 504, your Middle School will send the information to FHS over the summer.
Please keep in mind our counselors and teachers are not available to meet with students prior to their first day of school in August. Please continue to check the Fairview website for information on summer reading or homework assignments and the first day of school timeline. Most of your questions can be answered by searching our website.

! Honor Council Survey
Any instance of academic malpractice may be reported here (cheating, issues of academic integrity). Do not report any names, rather report the behavior observed. In this way, the reporting survey is not meant to target individuals partaking in these actions, but to provide teachers with a better understanding of the types of cheating occurring within their classes. All submissions are anonymous.
! After Prom 2019
After Prom just launched their 2019 website: fhsbhsafterprom.org.
After Prom 2019, a community-sponsored, adult-supervised and fun-filled evening following Prom, will be held for Juniors and Seniors (and their approved guests) on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 11:30 pm until Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 4:00 am at the East Boulder Community Center, 5660 Sioux Drive, Boulder, CO 80303.
To provide the best event possible and encourage our students to attend, we need your help. We need to raise approximately $50,000 to keep ticket prices down and to cover event expenses including food, music, activities, prizes, and decor.
Please support this critical initiative by donating $40 per family.
In addition, we also need 200+ volunteers to help with pre-event set up, support during the event and post event clean-up. Whatever time you have to help would be greatly appreciated! Check out available volunteer shifts here.
Wait...What’s After Prom?
After Prom is a community-sponsored, adult-supervised and fun-filled evening following the Boulder and Fairview High Proms. The event will include food, casino, prizes, games and more! Each year the Community Center is transformed into a magical event venue. This year's theme is Pop Art!
After Prom was developed by concerned parents and administrators after a series of tragic alcohol/drug-related accidents claimed the lives of 11 Denver/Boulder teens in 1995. After Prom is a drug and alcohol-free alternative to unsupervised parties.
Tickets will be available on our website starting April 1 for $8. Tickets at the door will be $10 (cash only). Tickets for students in need will be free.
