FAIRMOUNT FOCUS — JANUARY 2018 ISSUE
It has been another successful year for our Mountain Vista Community Project! Mr. DeWinkle led the sixth graders in an amazing musical program for the residents. The generous families donated enough gifts for every resident to receive one! This important program has a long tradition that could not happen without the help of all the fabulous volunteers who helped 215 kids draw resident names, the teachers who graciously allowed us to conduct the drawings, the volunteers who helped collect and transport the gifts, Sue Bobroske and Nancy Eckley for all the additional support, Mr. DeWinkle for putting together the music program, Steve and the staff at Mountain Vista for gathering the resident gift requests and everything they did to prepare for this program, the amazing Fairmount families who donated much appreciated gifts, and most importantly, our sixth grade students for bringing so much holiday spirit to the residents at Mountain Vista. This is a project where, as they say, it truly takes a village. Thank you all for everything you have done to support this amazing program.
We hope you all had a relaxing break from school and you are excited about the new year. We are positively ecstatic about the wonderful events and programs that are available to our students in 2018! The Talent Show is fast approaching, so start practicing your acts. We have so many engaging clubs and programs—you must go to our website to view them all—and of course we can’t forget about the Fairmount Firebird 5K Chase!
There will not be a PTA meeting in January. The next meeting will be February 6, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. in the Fairmount Library. Free child care will be provided. Our guest speaker for this meeting will be Adria Lucerna. Adria is the parent volunteer who has put in countless hours on the Safe Routes to School grant. From that grant, Fairmount was awarded funds for sidewalks on 50th Ave. The safety of all of our students is paramount to our PTA, and we have been strategizing ways to get these sidewalks installed. Come to our February 6th meeting to hear all the latest updates and details of this project.
Wishing you a New Year that is merry and bright!
A BIG THANK-YOU TO . . .
A HUGE THANK-YOU to Janna Wertz and Terri Kilgroe, for coordinating the annual sixth grade visit to the Mountain Vista nursing home. We know those gifts are so appreciated and that it is such a great lesson of generosity for our kids. You did such a great job!
Student Council would like to extend a big thank-you to the Fairmount community for your participation in the holiday donation drive. Jeffco’s Serving Kids, which serves needy students throughout Jeffco schools, had requested necessities and received a large donation from our generous community. Fairmount is overflowing with students who CARE.
