JH Boys Basketball Beat Anaheim Hills in Season Opener
The Fairmont Edgewood Junior High boys basketball team had its season opener Tuesday at home against rival Anaheim Hills.  The game was close for most of the first half with the lead being exchanged several times.  Midway into the third quarter Edgewood began to pull away closing the quarter with a seven point lead.   Anaheim Hills tried to rally in the fourth quarter with full court pressure and hard fouls but ultimately had little success.   Edgewood’s ball handling under pressure and good free throw shooting kept the game in their control, and the team was victorious, winning 38-28!  Edgewood then traveled to the Fairmont Mable Campus on Thursday to play the Panthers.  The game was similar as it was close most of the way in the first half before wearing the Panthers down in the second.  The final score was 36-25 putting Edgewood into first place in the Tri-Way League at 2-0.  When asked about this year’s team Coach Powell said “these boys have heart and they play as a team, if they continue to play this way it’s going to be a fun season.”  Edgewood’s next home game is against Heritage Christian Tuesday, December 14th.  For a schedule of all the games, game times, away game addresses, game results, league standings, cancellations, make-up games, as well as other information to do with the boys Jr. High Athletics’ programs go to Coach Powell’s blackboard page.   The link is After hitting the link, click on classes, then click Mr. Powell’s P-4 – 8th grade P.E. classes/Jr. High Athletics.

4th Graders Share Their Culture
Namaste!  The 4th graders in Miss del Carmen's class were able to learn more about Indian culture with a presentation about Dilwali and the Muslim holiday, Eid.  Thank you to Mrs. Cavale and Mrs. Talwar for preparing a beautiful PowerPoint presentation about the Diwali festival.  They brought food and sweets to share with the class, and a traditional sari for Miss del Carmen to try on!  Mrs. Biviji and Mrs. Khan brought delicious food to eat, and created a fun Jeopardy game about Eid.  The students enjoyed learning about these Indian traditions, and they also had fun trying new foods! We are always excited to learn about our diverse student population at Edgewood! 

1st Grade Eid Celebration
A huge thank you to the Ansari Family and Mrs. Chillar for a remarkable Eid celebration for both first grade classes!  The students and teachers were able to learn about this beautiful Indian tradition while sampling traditional Indian foods and getting toys and bangle bracelets.  Henna tattoos were offered for all the students and teachers.  These tattoos were beautifully applied by Henna artists and left on our hands for  enjoyment throughout the weekend.  The students and teachers both appreciated the time and effort from these families for adding to our cultural awareness this season!
