The Fairmount Spelling Bee for 4th and 5th graders will be held on Tuesday, January 25th, from 2:00 - 3:30. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate a parent audience this year. However, it will be recorded and sent out to the parents of all participants.
Battle of the Books
Many of our 5th-grade students are preparing for our Battle of the Books competition on Wednesday, February 23rd. Battle of the Books is a trivia-based literacy program. Students read from a list of ten books from different genres and then compete against other teams to answer questions about the books. This friendly competition will allow teams to battle each other within our school, and then we will send our TOP TWO teams to a Final Battle between other teams around the Jeffco school district.
