Celebrate Me Days are here in 2nd Grade, Ms. Escutia's Class 
Celebrate "Me" days have started in Ms. Escutia's second grade class. This is Ms. Escutia's 4th year having this special event for her second grade students. So you might be thinking, "What is a Celebrate Me day?" This day is a day in which a child in Ms. Escutia's students each has a special day in which they receive special privileges. Here are some of the special things they receive: 
He/she will get to eat lunch with Ms. Escutia. 
They will get to plan the day with Ms. Escutia.
They will get to share about something important to them for 20 minutes (i.e. photographs, trophies, medals, a video of them, a sports uniform, their favorite picture book ect.)
They get to wear a "CELEBRATE ME CROWN"
They get a free homework pass.
They get to sit next to the friend of their choice in the room. 
They get the special chair and stuffed animals to read after their work is completed the whole day.
This day is one of the best days in second grade for Ms. Escutia's students and one they remember most.

Persian New Year in 4th Grade
Aide Shoma Mabarak! 
Happy New Year!  Miss del Carmen's 4th graders were able to learn about Persian New Year on Tuesday.  Nadia Akbari told the students about traditions and celebrations done during the first day of spring each year.  The students also enjoyed tasting Persian sweets and decorating eggs while they learned about the seven "S's," which are different symbols that represent prosperity, rebirth, love, and affluence for the new year.  One of the most interesting topics Nadia presented was the tradition of jumping over fire.  She explained, "It is meant to give up all the bad things (sickness, weakness, etc.) of the prior year to the burning power of fire and getting good things (health and wealth) for the upcoming new year in return."  

WASC Visit to Edgewood
On March 16th the Edgewood campus participated in the WASC On-Site Mid-Term Review.  Three years ago our school was given a six year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  This accreditation included a mid-term progress evaluation.  The visiting committee found that at this time we had met most of the goals included in our four action plans-Support for Academic Enrichment and Remediation, Improvement of Technology to Support Academics, Ongoing Development of Textbook Renewal and Review Program, and Increase Analysis of Data for Decision-Making.  The visiting committee was very impressed with our teachers, students, and the overall accomplishments on this site.  We thank everyone who contributed to make this such a successful visit.  There is reason to believe that we may have gotten an A+!! 

Class Placement  
Dear Parent,
The Edgewood campus is almost to the end of its re-enrollment season. It is a busy and exciting time as we secure contracts from our returning students and welcome new students. 

Classroom placement is determined by teachers and administration. Please know that we will follow the contract guideline under Rule & Policies for the Academic Year for 2011-2012 which states:

Line 2. Each student's classroom placement will be at the discretion of Fairmont Schools, Inc. Requests for specific teachers and/or fellow students will not be accepted.

We thank you for your understanding and support. 

Your Participation Requested for Fairmont's Annual Parent Survey
Dear Parents: 
You should have received an invitation to complete an online school survey. If you have not received that email, please let the office know so we can email it to you. We really value your input and hope that all of you will take some time to complete the survey. As an encouragement for you to do so, we will be offering your child a free dress pass if you complete the online survey. Your child will bring home a survey completion form for you to sign signifying that you have completed the form. Your child should return the completed survey form to her/his homeroom teacher so s/he can keep a record. Once the survey closes on March 31st, we will select a free dress day and let the students, whose parents completed the survey, know what day the free dress day is.  

Thanks in advance for your participation!
