History of Fairview Elementary Fairview Elementary School was established in 1929, when several schools in the area merged to form one school. The school is the oldest continuously operated public school in Henry County, Georgia. The original Fairview had three rooms, which branched off from a round auditorium in the middle. Fairview was chosen as the name because you could see a “fair view” of all its surroundings. It served as the hub of the Stockbridge community for many years. Before the development of the Henry County Recreational Center, it served as the host facility for northern Henry recreational activities, political forums, and town hall meetings.

How Can You Help? Get your child to school everyday if possible except when sick and on time. Read with them, come to learning sessions. How you learned in school is not what they are learning now. If you know your child has struggles, have the mind set WE together, NOT us Alone! Make sure they understand, it does “Take a Village” but each village has rules that they must follow and the rules may be different in each village!
“HOUSEKEEPING” Make sure we have a yellow card. List everyone and anyone you want to have contact with your child. Make sure your child’s teacher knows with a written note each time transportation changes. Bring ID each time you or anyone else checks out your child. No office check-outs between 2:00-2:35.
