Fairfield Selections 

 

for the 2018-19 School Year are still under development. We will be posting updates as decisions are made. We will stay with the books that work well and take a little more time to decide if we will be changing books for certain Topics. Selecting the very best books is a task The Founders Committee takes very seriously, so we want to be sure we “get it right.” If you have a specific question on a specific Topic, please do not hesitate to send us a message at our email address listed below. We will gladly let you know which selections have made the final consideration.

To give you an example of a Final Booklist and Topic List, we have retained our prior year’s selections. To see the 2017-18 selections, scroll down on this page.
