Principal’s Message

Dear Cardinal Families,

My name is Candace Wilkerson and I am honored to serve as principal of Fair Oaks Elementary. Fair Oaks is an amazing school with a faculty and staff that works hard to provide students with a quality education.

Our theme for the 2018-19 school year is “The mindset of the team makes the dream!” When we think about mindset, it is an established set of attitudes. The team at Fair Oaks is embracing a growth mindset for ourselves and our students. In a growth mindset, people believe their abilities can be developed through hard work and perseverance. Our students need to know the power of hard work and the ability to work through challenges that come their way. Teachers at Fair Oaks recognize the need to provide students with a challenging learning atmosphere that prepares them to move to the next level.

Fair Oaks will not be successful without a complete “team”. The role of parents and caregivers is an integral part of student success at Fair Oaks. It is important to stay in contact with your child’s teacher(s) throughout the school year. We welcome parent volunteers, and would love to have families join the Fair Oaks PTA. The 2018-19 school year is going be great. Support us in building our students academically and socially.

Sincerely,
Candace B. Wilkerson
Principal
