Fairmont Schools launch ‘Community Days’

Last week Fairmont Area Schools held the first of its Cardinal Community Days, a new program that allows students in the district to work more independently. Students can opt to do school work from home or remain in the school building to get extra help from teachers. These days also provide opportunities for community members to come in and put on specialized programming. This is a great, innovative way for kids to learn and we’re excited to see what the next sessions bring.
