Principal's Message

Dear Falcon Families,


Welcome to an exciting new year at Fairwood Elementary School. I look forward to working with you to achieve our academic goals and giving every student the opportunity to find success in the educational experience. This is my second year as the principal of Fairwood Elementary and we really are #BigBlueOnTheMove.


We believe that all students have an opportunity to be successful if they have the educational support here at school and more importantly the support needed by their family and friends at home. We provide evidence based, top of the line English Language Arts and Mathematics curriculum each and every day. Students get the chance to explore the literature world through an abundance of leveled short stories and develop their social skills as they discuss with their peers and teachers how they relate to the message. We are student centered and provide an academic rich learning environment while promoting our decisions through a growth mindset. 


Fairwood has many opportunities for families to be involved throughout the school year. We have an active PTO that meets regularly to plan events and make decisions that directly impact your childs’ school experience. We have many after school events such as our very own Fall Festival, Homecoming float, Veterans Day, Family Resource Night, Breakfast with Santa, Daughters Dance, Son’s Night, and are extremely popular and attended event; Spring Carnival at Stricker's Grove. Please feel free to join the team and make your presence known to support your child and our school. 


I am proud to serve you, your families, our students, and the community as we strive to reach our highest potential. Your childs’ education and their safety are my utmost priority. If for any reason you need to contact me, please do so through my email [email protected] or by calling the school at 513.868.5610. Go Big Blue!


With Falcon Pride,


Matthew L. Crapo, Principal
