A message from Stacie Batson

Welcome to Fairview Middle School!

I am eager to begin my first year as Principal at FMS. This will be my 17th year in public education and I am truly honored to be spending it among our students, parents, faculty, staff, and Fairview community.

In addition to my role at school, I am a proud wife and mom. JT and I have been married for almost 10 years and we have two sweet daughters, Lucy (3) and Rylee (16). They will be joining me in Fairview and we are thrilled to start this new chapter as a family.

At FMS, our vision is to challenge and empower students to become lifelong learners and successful leaders. In fact, we call our students learners and leaders every day, because we want our students to embrace our vision and take pride in their academic journey as well as their school. FMS is a special place, where we truly care about our students, and teachers go above and beyond to build relationships.

We want our students to be critical thinkers, problem solve, be kind to others, and to embrace challenge with a growth mindset. We teach students that the learning is in the struggle, and to be brave enough to persevere. Our overarching goal is for our students to become productive and responsible citizens contributing in a positive way to their world. We challenge our students and have high expectations of them, but we focus on the whole child and want to see them become their best selves.

It is an honor to be here with you all and I look forward to the tremendous work we will do together!

Stacie S. Batson
