HOME OF GRIFFIN PRIDE!

Principal's Message


A Message from our Principal, 
Dr. Robin L. Hardy
Welcome to Fairfield Middle School, the Home of Griffin Pride.  Our motto, “Where Griffins Unite and Griffins Take Flight” represents the coming together of various different geographical locations and personal experiences.  At least five respective elementary schools from across Fairfield County come together—to unite—in the seventh grade.  And by the eighth grade year, students are ready to take flight to the new adventures of high school and beyond.  We welcome you to join us on our mission to prepare our students for that journey.

FCSD Digital Initiative (Chromebook Deployment)

Fairfield County School District is excited about the Digital Learning Initiative (DLI), which will enable each student to have a device for his/her educational use. This implementation of Chromebooks will ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn utilizing the same device at the same time. It is the district’s on-going desire to provide equity to all students in every classroom

Each student must return a signed Chromebook Agreement Form and pay the Optional Insurance or submit the Liability Waiver Form (which states the parent/guardian will be financially responsible for a stolen or damaged Chromebook) to the school no later than January, 6, 2015. 


For more information, please see the links below or call Fairfield Middle School at 635-9108.
