Make Your Voice Heard
Students in grades 2-5 will all have completed our District’s Make Your Voice Heard survey by February 4. The survey allows students to provide feedback on our school’s climate, student-staff relationships, and rigor and relevance.
Colorado Children’s Book Award
All students at Fairmount will vote 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 heard at least 3 of these picture books read to them, if not all. The votes will be compiled and turned into the state committee that sponsors this event, and they will inform us of the state winner. It has been fun to read all of these great books!
Battle of the Books
The Fairmount Battle of the Books competition will take place on Wednesday, February 24th. 17 teams of 5th-grade students will test their knowledge of 10 different books. Our top 2 teams will compete in the Jeffco Battle of the Books competition to be held virtually on March 2nd. Good luck to all of our competitors!
During February, our students will engage in digital citizenship learning related to Relationships and Communication. Students will learn the importance of communicating respectfully with others while online. Whether they are chatting in games or texting with family members, having certain skills will build positive relationships. You can best support your child by modeling positive online behaviors.
