Media Center Upgrades are Coming Soon!  Please help support us by making a donation today!

An exciting update is on the way to Fairyland School Library during the summer of 2019!

A three-dimensional Fairyland Forest scene will be installed in our main meeting space, framed around a beautiful existing painting of the outdoors.  This meeting space is where all fairyland students gather weekly to encounter the love of learning through reading, so the impact of this project is deep and life-long, becoming a focal point for our school.  The magical forest will include a life-size tree with a chair built into the trunk on one side and a rock out-cropping with stone archway on the other, both wrapping around the top, framing the mural.  A small, wood stamped concrete stage will be constructed at the base, creating a scene as if the picture were the view seen outdoors somewhere on Lookout.  We are thrilled to be partnering with a local company out of Dayton TN, CORE Associates for this project.

We are still in need of financial support and will be creating hand-lettered donor leaves, and etched stones for those who contribute.  The donor levels are as follows: $20 for a green leaf, $50 for an orange/red leaf and $100 for a handmade leaf from a retired Fairyland School library book.  Donations of $500 or more will be put into a plaque or etched into stones on the project. An easy and secure link to online giving is below.  We will share more about this at Grandparents Day, but Please feel free to contact melissacairns@walkerschools.org or pto@fairylandschool.org if you have questions or are interested in being an active part of this wonderful project that will be loved for generations of Fairyland students to come.

Donate securely online!


Please put Library Renovation Project in the comments box and name that you would like to appear on leaf/stone in the In Honor/Memory of box. 

 Thank you!

Fairyland School – 2018 CCRPI Scores are in….

Congratulations to Fairyland School for another excellent CCRPI score!

Fairyland’s 2018 score is 90.5!!!   WOW!!  This ranks Fairyland School among the top elementary schools in Georgia!!
This confirms the excellent instructional practices being implemented, the relationships that have been built, and the hard work of every single person in the school building and community!  This is not a representation of one thing that the school does well, but rather of the many things we do well on a DAILY basis.  This score represents the amazing power of team which has been created and how students, teachers, parents, and staff go over and beyond to help every child reach their highest potential.  This truly represents the pride and passion of everyone for this school.  I am thankful, humbled, and amazed to be your leader.  Thanks to everyone for ALL you do and doing it so well!
We are Fairyland!

Fairyland School Progress Report Procedure & PowerSchool App!

Please note that Fairyland School is transitioning to a more digital approach when communicating and delivering progress reports. With this new approach, we are informing you that October 12th will be the last paper copy of your child’s progress report that we send home. As we move forward, I’d like to encourage all parents to download the new PowerSchool App to access your child’s grades.  This can be downloaded and used in order for you to see all comments, grades, attendance, and announcements within PowerSchool.  The app also has a notifications feature where you will be notified via text when your child is absent from class and has had new grades entered.  Please note that we will still provide a paper copy of your child’s progress report if requested. Please contact the school office if a paper copy is needed and we will gladly print one for you.

To assist you further, we have created a flyer that can be used as well including a video link to help you navigate the new App. To login, you will need to have your child’s PowerSchool ID and password. These were sent home earlier in the year with your child. Please contact the school office if you have any issues or questions.
