! Fairview's March to the Ballot Box
To celebrate first-time voters and bolster voter participation, students and teachers are encouraged to walk as part of a group to the South Boulder Rec Center Ballot Drop-off Box. Students and teachers should bring their completed ballots (those unable to vote are encouraged to participate as well.) The march begins at 11:30 am on October 24, 2018 and will last until 12 pm. The march will begin at the front entrance to the school. We will then walk as a group through the school, and down to the South Boulder Rec Center to deposit our completed ballots into the box. All students and teachers are encouraged to participate (nonvoters and voters!!!).
Who else will be there:
- Hillary Hall (Boulder County Clerk and Recorder) - she will have "I voted" stickers
- Laurie Albright - Former President of BVSD School Board
- Rollie Heath - Former State Legislator
- Potentially other local and state politicians!
- Reporters from the Daily Camera

! Calculator and Book Drive
Fairview’s Leadership Cabinet is having a drive for new or gently used graphing calculators and standardized test prep books (ACT, SAT, SAT Subject, AP, or any college application advice) for students that may not be able to afford them. Boxes to donate these items are in the library (near the front desk). These boxes will be at Parent-Teacher conferences, as well as throughout the school day, so you can either donate during the conferences or send items with your student.

! Cyber Seniors Program
The Cyber Seniors program allows you to make incredible connections with the elderly in our community while also helping them learn how to use their technology. You will be paired with another student and a resident at Golden West Retirement Home to work on technology-related projects every Sunday throughout the fall. You don't need to be a technology expert - if you can operate the basics of a phone and computer, that's perfect! The fall session of Cyber Seniors begins on October 14th and will continue every Sunday from 2:00-4:00 pm (excluding holiday breaks) through mid-December. Since one of the major goals of this program is to build relationships with the residents at Golden West, we ask that only volunteers who can attend all or almost all of the sessions sign up. Sign up here. Please email Lillian Berets ([email protected]) or Vanessa Haggans ([email protected]) with any questions!
