Wednesday, October 9th is International Walk to School Day. BFA will be participating with parents and buses dropping off students in front of the funeral home. Please drop off students on the same side of the road, so students do not have to cross the road. Parents, teachers, the National Honor Society, and our high school soccer teams will be keeping our students safe. Please drive safely and thanks for your patience at this time.

Current News & Events / Fairfax Community Trails

I just want to say thank you again to all of the people of Fairfax that were part of creating the Fairfax Community Trails. We absolutely love to use them for our Physical Education classes and we enjoyed them again today. Our elementary students always give a big cheer when I say we are headed to the trails to explore and hike. A special thanks to the tireless Doug Stewart who we saw working once again clearing wood on the trails today. I have posted some photos on my school website if anyone would like to take a look. Thanks again!


Current News & Events / BFA Fairfax Unified Sports Snowshoe Team
« on: March 12, 2011, 08:08:51 AM »
On March 11th, the BFA Fairfax Unified Sports Snowshoe Team traveled for the first time with coaches and parents to Suicide Six in Woodstock, VT to compete in the 2011 Snowshoe Competition. Eighteen schools were represented by over 200 competitors. Races were divided into divisions and each athlete competed in 2-3 races.

Being our first time there we went in with the attitude to do our best and have fun while doing it. Amidst the rain and fog all day, our BFA athletes competed with a lot of heart and good sportsmanship. With the parents and coaches cheering them on and having hopes of winning a medal, they were absolutely amazing! Fairfax won 13 medals and represented our school and program with pride.

The high school athletes were Johnny Moretti and Connor Byrne coached by Tim Rich. The elementary athletes were Ian Carpenter, Gwen Jumper, Savannah Donaldson, Hannah Rainville and Hannah Weed coached by Cindy Anderson, Sandy Brown and myself.

Thanks to the parents for supporting our athletes and helping us make it through the day and to Bradely Jumper for a great bus ride! Also thanks to all of those who supported people for the Penguin Plunge - Unified Sports is supported by this event.

It was exciting to hear the athletes (and coaches) on the bus ride home already planning for next year!

Current News & Events / BFA Fairfax joins Burlington Penguin Plunge
« on: January 30, 2011, 06:17:26 PM »
BFA Fairfax has a team joining the Burlington Penguin Plunge Saturday, February 5th. The plunge is raise money and awareness for Vermont Special Olympics. BFA has a new Unified Sports Team, an elementary team and a middle/high school team that is currently practicing for a Snowshoe competition in March. The middle/high school team will also participate in Bocce in the spring. Unified Sports is unique in that partners from a team (one that qualifies for Special Olympics and one that doesn't) compete together against other teams. The effects of these athletes all working together is already showing evidence of more compassion and understanding of people's varying abilities as teammates are helping each other in the hallways and classrooms as well as in practices. We are excited for this new adventure for BFA and even more excited for our athletes.

If you want to donate to the Vermont Special Olympics, here is the link to the website or see one of us on the list. Thanks in advance for your monetary support and/or your general support of our BFA Unified Sports Team!
