Message from the Principal

Dear Fairlands Families,

As we close the 2016-2017 school year, I wish your family a safe and relaxing summer break.   Along with the start of school reminders included in this letter, the new year will bring several staff changes to our campus.  
After many years of dedicated service to our students and school please join me in congratulating the following staff members on their retirement:

        • Ms. Carol Newman, 4th Grade Teacher
        Ms. Ann Rodriguez, School Secretary
        • Ms. Nancy Clevenger, Office Assistant
        • Ms. Tina Davis, Technology Specialist    

In addition to our retirements, I  would like to thank Mary Geasa, our Vice Principal as she has decided to return to the classroom at Hart Middle School. Her positive presence on our campus will be missed.
In preparation for the staff changes, I have been working with the PUSD Human Resources Department to fill these important positions.  I am happy to introduce and welcome into the Fairlands Family:

        • Heidi Burton, Vice Principal
        • Rob Mutzl, School Secretary
        Angela Gervasoni, Office Assistant

I have recommended for hire to the School Board an outstanding 4th grade teacher candidate.  Once the school board has approved, I will be able to introduce the successful candidate to the community.  In addition, with Mr. Mutzl moving from librarian to school secretary, in the coming weeks I will be interviewing for a new librarian and a technology specialist.  As we near the start of school, look for an introduction letter welcoming all of our new staff.
Fairlands will hold a Walk-Through Registration on Tuesday, August 8. Student classroom assignments will also be distributed on this day. Included within this letter is a schedule for the Walk-Through Registration as well as other very important dates and reminders. Please make sure to review this information.
Our school website is an excellent source of information and a way to keep current on any changes. You can visit the Fairlands Website by going to the Pleasanton School District Webpage at then clicking on "School Sites" and then on "Fairlands Elementary School." Our PTA also maintains an excellent website with information for parents. The PTA website address is   here.
We look forward to seeing you in August.  Our first day of school is Monday, August 14, 2017.
