Make Your Voice Heard
Students in grades 2-5 are in the process of completing our District’s Make Your Voice Heard survey. The survey allows students to provide feedback on our school’s climate, student-staff relationships, rigor, and relevance.
Colorado Children’s Book Award
All students at Fairmount will vote for their favorite Colorado Children’s Book Award (CCBA) book. Ten picture books and ten chapter books are nominated by students in Colorado each year. Primary students vote on their favorite picture book, and students in grades 3-5 have the opportunity to vote on their favorite picture and chapter books. 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, 23. Eight teams of 5th-grade students will test their knowledge of 10 different books. In addition, our top 2 teams will compete in the Jeffco Battle of the Books competition held virtually on March 1. Good luck to all of our competitors!
Our students will engage in digital citizenship learning related to Relationships and Communication during February. Students will learn the importance of communicating respectfully with others while online. Whether chatting in games or texting with family members, having specific skills will help them build positive relationships. You can best support your child by modeling positive online behaviors.
