Seal Recognition

The purpose of Fairview’s reward seal program is to provide all students with the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding efforts and achievements. Recognition is divided into three categories: Achievement, Pride, and Dedication; providing students to celebrate their well-rounded Fairview Junior High experiences.

Recognition Celebration

Each semester there will be a school wide reward activity to recognize those students who have earned seals in each of the areas of Achievement, Pride, and Dedication (minimum of three seals) or have earned 8 seals throughout the semester.
