Fajr Javid's Local Elementary School, where she attended the fourth grade, remembered her and two other students, Steven Petillo and Alexandra Falabella on June 23rd,2011. The dedication ceremony included a beautiful performance from the Fifth grade graduating class(All 3 children belong to this grade), individual letters from students to each family and a place in the yearbook for the three would-be graduates. A tree, placed with a plaque etched with the three childrens names, was planted in front of the school. Although these children died in three seperate, tragic ways, they have brought together all who they left behind.
