Recommended Home Install for SOL Test Practice

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working to expand the types of devices that school divisions can use in the administration of Standards of Learning (SOL) online tests. In order to accomplish this goal, the VDOE is upgrading its software from TestNav7 to TestNav8. The software will be phased in during the 2016-2017 school year. There are no changes to the subjects tested or types of questions that will be presented. TestNav8 online practice items are only available through the TestNav8 app. Instructions on how to install TestNav8 on various devices are listed at the link below. Practice guides should be used when reviewing the online practice items and are available on the VDOE website. To view online practice items you will need to download the new TestNav8.

Here you can find information about Scouts, after school programs (YMCA, Taekwondo, KPC), summer camp and special programs. Also, visit our PTA table next to the carousel. Here you will find information about membership, PTA guidelines, budget, and upcoming events.

Registration Hours

If you are new and need to register your child(ren) into Fairfield Elementary, please visit our school office between the hours of 8:30 and 2:30.

Join the PTA

Please consider joining the EFF PTA this year. Simply fill out the PTA member ship flyer and return to the school. Just look at the benefits of joining.

  1. Your child benefits:  When parents get connected to the school, children do better.  Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.
  2. We make a difference:  Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work – and so can our children.  We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. 
  3. We are about parent involvement, not fundraising.  In these times of tight budgets, parents groups everywhere are having to fill in the gaps, and so are we.  But our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school.  More than 300 independent research studies show that building parent involvement in education is the number one thing we can do to create a great school and improve student performance.
  4. There is lot to be done and it is fun:  These days, schools are asked to do more with less.  Our help is needed more than ever to fill in the gaps.  Yet the work is easy and we don’t take ourselves too seriously.  This is enjoyable fun.
  5. We have fun and meet nice people:  We share an inevitably common objective:  working on our children’s future.  The PTA is a natural incubator for great friendships.  Don’t miss out in being part of a larger community family.

Fairfield Volunteer In Education

We ask you take 5 minutes of your time to review the list of volunteer opportunities and consider signing up for at least one of them. There is great variety to choose from so we are sure you will be able to find something that is a good fit for you. If you are unsure at this time about what specific activity you wish to be involved in, but still want to volunteer, just let the PTA know and we will add you to the stand-by list that we will call on when help is urgently needed. Event volunteer sheets will also go out when the activity date approaches giving you another opportunity to sign up.

We also encourage you to watch the Volunteers In Education Video to get an overview of the program and to check out the VBCPS Volunteer In Education website for more information.
