Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Project
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.
Please click here for more information on the Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Project (on 50th Avenue).
There will be a Community Open House in May - date to be determined soon!
This event is being held on Monday, April 30th from 5:45-8:00 p.m.
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).
For more information about the sessions, please click here.
