FAIRMOUNT FOCUS — MARCH 2018 ISSUE
Hufford & Co. Real Estate & Property Management will make a donation to charity of client’s choice for every real estate transaction handled by us associated with Fairmount Elementary.
We would like to thank Adria Lucerna, Mary Keith Floyd, and Megan Castle for being our guest speakers at the February PTA meeting. The presentation from this meeting can be found on our website. They have formed a committee in hopes of gaining traction on the sidewalk construction. The committee will be at the Fairmount Firebird 5K Chase and have a Community Open House in May. Their goal is to get as much community support as possible. We need the county to understand how important it is to our community that our children can have a safe route to school. The time, energy, and effort that these women are putting into this project is so commendable. Thank you!
A BIG THANK-YOU TO . . .
Mary Sinesi, Nicky Dodge, and all the other volunteers who helped pull together the talent show. You guys did an amazing job organizing the show and showing off our very talented students at Fairmount.
The Fairmount PTA offers a scholarship to former Fairmount students. These past students are eligible for a $1,000 scholarship when they are high school seniors. This scholarship is available to any high school senior who was enrolled at Fairmount Elementary School for a period of three years or more, has a satisfactory grade standing, citizenship record, and community service experiences.
This year’s talent show was a total success. Everyone did an amazing job. A total of 30 acts and 60 kids graced the stage. A surprise act from the 6th grade teachers along with 5th and 6th grade students kicked off the show. There were singers, dancers, rappers, instrumentalists, pogo stick jumpers, martial arts, and actors who graced the stage that night. Sixth graders Landon Orchard and Emilie Sinesi were phenomenal masters of ceremony, while a combination of 5th and 6th grade volunteers helped with backstage setup and music for the talent show. It was a packed house, and the audience was totally entertained. So many came to support these very talented kids, proving that this long-standing tradition should be continued for years to come. Fairmount Talent Show even made the Jeffco Schools Facebook page.
Each month, the Fairmount teachers recognize students who demonstrate CARE behaviors by posting their accomplishments on the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is located in the hallway leading from the cafeteria to outside. Below are the students being recognized for the month of March 2018.
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of our
Champion: Nula Burns (5, Tilton)
These students represented Fairmount at the area spelling bee at Drake Middle School on Tuesday, February 7. These super spellers handled some very difficult words and made Fairmount proud! Way to go!
CONGRATULATIONS to all 27 Fairmount students who participated in the Robotics Competition on Saturday, February 10. This competition was the result of 14 weeks of work. Our teams worked hard to problem-solve and persevere, and their hard work paid off. Three of our teams made it to the finals, and they all tied for 3rd Place. One team, the Electrolites who are Oskar Harvey and Abby Fritzer, received the judges award for design and documentation. Many congratulations to all of our Robotics Club students!
Colorado Children's Book Award
All students at Fairmount have voted for their favorite Colorado Children’s Book Award (CCBA) picture book. Ten picture books and ten chapter books are nominated by students in Colorado each year. Your students have gotten to hear at least three of these picture books read to them, if not all. Grades K and 1 voted using Smart Response clickers, and grades 2–6 voted via a Google Form. The votes have been compiled and turned in to the state committee who sponsors this event, and they will inform me of the state winner. It has been fun to read all of these great books!
