Fairmount Multicultural Night & Heritage Fair

 

APRIL 19TH ~ 5:30 TO 8:00PM

We are getting organized for the upcoming Fairmount Multicultural Night and Heritage Fair and are looking for volunteers!  It's a wonderful event, celebrating the diversity of our school community.  Help for 30 minutes or stay and help for the entire event, all hands are welcome!

***Volunteers - click here to sign up***

 

We are looking for families that would be interested in hosting a table or showcasing talent on their heritage/background or culture for the upcoming Fairmount Multicultural Night and Heritage Fair!

 

In past years, families have provided food samples, set up a cultural game or activity for kids to try, and/or had a display of cultural information.  Students will get passports and come to your table to learn about your culture/heritage/background, then get a stamp in their passport.

 

Later on, we will have dance/song/poem or other kinds of performances from Fairmount students or families. We'd love to have sign ups for those too!

This event is being held on Monday, April 30th from 5:45-8:00 p.m.

 
Please RSVP by clicking here...

Thanks to the Fairmount PTA, this event is FREE to all Fairmount families.

 

The evening will begin with pizza for parents and all children at 5:45 in the Fairmount cafeteria. Then, kids will stay in the cafeteria for teacher-led literacy, art, and outside (weather permitting) activities. Childcare will also be provided by school staff for preschoolers. At 6:30, parents will proceed to the gym for our keynote address by Dr. Jason Glass, Superintendent of Jeffco Schools. He will speak about the Generations vision for our students as they progress through Jeffco and then enter either college or the work place.

Beginning at 7:00, parents will have the choice to attend 2 of 6 sessions (7 Keys to Comprehension, Internet Safety, STEM/Robotics, Balancing Screen Time at Home, Diversity and Equity through Children's Literature and Protecting Your Child's Mental Health).

Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Project

Open House - May 15th (5:00-7:00pm)

 

Earlier this year, our school was awarded a Federal Safe Routes to School Grant ($265k).  Many of us, past and present, have had a desire for our kids to walk or bike to Fairmount.  This vision is in the works BUT we need to have community support to make this happen.

 

There will be a Community Open House for the Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Project (on 50th Avenue)

at Fairmount Elementary on May 15.
