Our 3 largest fundraising efforts at Fairmount are the:
- Silent Auction (September 27, 2019)
- Fairmount Firebird 5K Chase (April/May)
- King Soopers and Safeway Grocery Card Programs
Additional Fundraisers Include:
Each year we identify “big ticket items” in order to enhance the Fairmount Elementary experience. In past years these items have included iPads and “smart boards” for every classroom, Chromebooks for every grade, new playground equipment, Fundation supplies, school safety equipment, an outdoor classroom, the Learning Garden, improvements to our running track, and the electronic marquee at the school entrance.
Last year was a very successful fundraising year and, as a result, we are able to provide new iPads and cases (cost of $19,000) to the school and $25,000 in classroom furniture as well as continued classroom support (over $20,000) that directly enhanced all students' education experience.
Fundraising efforts this year, with a $55,000 goal, will go towards purchasing replacement iPads and Chromebooks, the Kindness Crew, supporting a Reading Interventionist, contributing to the cost of field trips, funding of an Author Visit, and our wonderful PTA supported programs.
