FRIDAY FOLDER anaheim hills campus january 28

Two students representing Fairmont Private School-Anaheim Hills recently won highest honors in this year's WordMasters Challenge-a national language arts competition entered by aproximately 220,000 students annually, which consists of three separate meets held at

Competing in the very difficult Gold Division of the Challenge, eighth graders Rebecca Choi and Yvonne Kim both earned perfect scores in the year's first meet, held in December.  In the entire country only 51 eighth graders acheived perfect results.  Other students at the school who also achieved outstanding results in the meet included fourth graders Alexandra Brondum, Anastasia Huddleston, Channing Lee, Sunny Yang, Jelissa Lin, Sarah Hsiao, Mariano Chacon and Ava Malakooti; sixth grader Zoe Wang; seventh graders Lauren Lee, Ezekial Levin, Megan Mettler, Yannie Hoang, Nicole Kuntjoro, and Brittney Nguyen;and eighth graders Kayla Bach, Aaron Su, and Emily Yang.

The WordMasters Challenge is an exercise in critical thinking that first encourages students to become familiar with a set of interesting new words (considerably harder than grade level), and then challenges them to use words to complete analogies expressing various kinds of logical relationships.

Mrs. Carroll's Class Celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day
During the week of January 10, 2011 and prior to the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, third graders learned about Martin Luther King, Jr.  We started reading the story My Brother Martin from our Treasures textbook which shared information written by Martin's sister, Christine King Farris.  Ms. Farris wanted boys and girls to know that her famous brother was once a kid just like them, and how ordinary people can grow up to do great things.  In addition to other activities, students made an "I Have A Dream" mobile where they stated their own dreams for their community, their country, and the world.  The week concluded when students watched Rev. King deliver his  famous "I Have A Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Junior High Spirit Day!
In conjunction with the winter sports pep rally, junior high ASB leaders held their second spirit day.  The purpose of spirit day is to increase school spirit through a modified dress code and spirit activities.  The ASB chose Rainbow of Colors as their free dress theme and each grade was given two colors of the rainbow to wear on spirit day.  Following the pep rally, where the 4th graders were able to make more noise than the 5th through 8th graders, the 5th graders were invited to stay and watch a few fun spirit competitions.  ASB president and vice president Rebecca Choi and River Crawford first demonstrated and then presided over a goofy human wheelbarrow, leapfrog, and duck-walk race was followed by a Lucky Charms marshmallow toss, and ended with the building of human rainbows.
