Cougar Chorus Spring Concert  
On Wed, April 13, the Cougar Chorus graced the stage with their beautiful singing. Cougar Chorus is for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who love to sing, and it is directed by our music specialist, Mrs. Zavoral. Students meet twice a week before school to practice in the music studio.

This season, the chorus worked on singing in 2 and 3 part harmony and blending with their sections to sound like one voice. At the concert, they performed a variety of music including a Spring Hymn, a Russian folk song, and the pop song "Soul Sister" by Train. It was clear that the audience loved the performance because they gave the chorus a standing ovation!

Drama Proceeds Benefit UNICEF
Thanks to the supporters of the performing arts, the drama department was able to make a substantial donation to UNICEF for their Tap Project campaign.  For every ticket sold to "Grease," $1 was set aside to provide clean water to children in desperate situations around the globe.  Thank you to each and every ticketholder for supporting the arts and a wonderful charity.  We are happy to extend Fairmont's support of UNICEF through the Trick-or-Treat program, the Tap Project, and the UNICEF Club at the Prep, who hosted an information table at the performances.  Our Fairmont theater fans are making a difference - not only on our campus, but worldwide!

Pointillism Art for Sale
Our beautiful pointillism art, in the style of George Seurat is for sale.  Parents may bid on the artwork by signing the Silent Auction bid sheet outside the art room through Friday, May 6.  All proceeds will go to support the art program.  If you have any questions, please see Mrs. DuClos.

Parents, students, teachers, and visitors enjoy the Enrollment Celebration Barbeque held on April 27   

Enrollment Celebration BBQ
The Mable Campus was filled with excitement on Wednesday, April 27, as families and visitors enjoyed a picnic-style lunch with hot dogs and snacks. Families took time to visit with their children on the field, chatted with friends, and enjoyed a perfect spring day. The picnic was a wonderful opportunity to share our appreciation for the continued trust our families have in us, and we are extremely grateful to them for allowing us to achieve our enrollment goal. Many thanks also to the Fairmont Parent Association for providing delicious snow cones, and to Food Management for catering such tasty treats.
Boys Soccer
The JH Boys Soccer team just finished up a very successful season. They made it all the way to the semifinals of the Tri-Way League where they fell short to Anaheim Hills 2-0.It was a remarkable season for the boys because they finished with a record of 7-5 while playing with 10 players for 10 out of the 12 games. The defense was held together by goalie Nico Ament and defenders Matthew Tuinstra, Ejay Cho, Brando Padilla, and Nomin Park. They only gave up 9 goals in 12 games, which is a wonderful accomplishment. Through the midfield we were led by Shawn Cho, our playmaker, Alfred Mustafa, Justin Lee, Tarek Sahyoun, and Ken Li. Our leading goal scorer, Kareem Latif, tallied 16 goals for the season and was our engine during our play-off run. I have been coaching soccer for over 10 years, and I have not been more proud of a group of boys. Their heart and determination was second to none, and it was a true privilege to coach these young men.

Junior High Spirit Week
As the year begins to wind down, ASB events pick up. After a relaxing spring break, Junior High students jumped into the events of Spirit Week. ASB planned everything, and this year it was all about the movies. Each day, students competed to earn spirit points for their homeroom by dressing up to the according theme of that day. On Friday, April 29, homerooms competed against each other for a chance to steal the trophy from Mrs. Lugo's homeroom, last year's champion class. The homeroom games this year included a peanut butter and popcorn toss, a banana eating contest, a relay race, and a frozen T-shirt contest. In addition to spirit week, ASB sponsors other major events throughout the year including Carnival, the End-of-Year dance, and fundraisers.

Edgewood Parking Lot Safety Reminders
1) Parents need to enter the churchparking lot from Vanderlip ONLY. We want to have one way traffic in that parking lot. If parents ask another person (grandparent, friend etc) to pick/drop off their child, they need to inform that person of the procedure.
2) No running in the parking lots.
3) Children need to stay by their parents' side in the parking lot at all times.
4) Parents need to slow down in all the parking lots. Please no speeding.
5) No parking on the red curb.

The Perfect Season
Come, Come, feel the spring breeze!
Spring is here with helpful bees;
The warm rays take away the sadness
And fill you with joy and happiness;
Flowers fill the air with a lively scent
A butterfly proudly sucks the nectar as meant;
Lush green meadows and beautiful skies
With a wonderful and exciting surprise;
Chirping birds sing a melodious song
Spring is now gone, but not for long!

At this event, there were 59 teams (177 students) from all over the country.  Our debaters took on the best of the best and should be very proud of their accomplishments.   Please see the information below for specific awards and a "sunny" photo of the group. 

Team Awards:
20th place: Anaheim Hills CTL
17th place: Anaheim Hills KWJ 
15th place: Pegasus JFG
11th place: Edgewood MMF: Kieran M., Amanda M., Nick F.
8th place: Anaheim Hills BCP 

Speaker Awards:
34th place: Francisco B.

Our final debate is this Saturday April 30th - the OCDL Championship held at Fairmont Anaheim Hills. We hope to see you all there!

SCHOOL NEWS edgewood shines at the oc science fair

On April 6th 2011, Edgewood's 16 top science fair students headed to the Orange County Fairgrounds to present their projects in the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair (OCSEF).  The OCSEF is an annual event organized to encourage the youth of our county to learn about science and to consider a career in science or engineering.  The competition involves presenting a scientific project completed by the student to a variety of board and special judges who are scientists, engineers, and educators in industry and schools in and around southern California. 

Following the judging, students patiently awaited the awards ceremony the following Sunday, April 10th.  The results of this year's competition were another amazing success by Edgewood students!  Of the 16 Edgewood students presenting at the OCSEF, 9 qualified for the California State Science Fair in May.  What follows are the listing of the awards taken by our students at the OCSEF. 

Student Awards:

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT edgewood recognizes sahar khashayar

Fifth grade honor roll student Sahar Khashayar has been a Fairmont student since second grade.  Her sister, Parisa, also attends Edgewood in Mrs. Brown’s first grade class.  Sahar’s favorite subjects are math and science but she also enjoys English—especially literature and writing.  In fact, she hopes to one day become both a published author and an astrophysicist!  In addition to maintaining Director’s Honor Roll-worthy grades and contributing to her school community through ASB, she enjoys playing the piano and violin, playing soccer, and participating on a swim team.  “As her teacher, I can attest to her drive, her ambition, and her academic talent. Sahar is a wonderful student, one that I am proud to teach. Observing her these past several months I can attest to the fact that when she has her mind set on a goal she will achieve it,” says Mr. Williamson.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT anaheim hills features megan mettler

Honor Roll student Megan Mettler has a heart for volunteerism and concern for her community that is truly remarkable. The seventh grader at Fairmont’s Anaheim Hills campus is involved in a number of charitable organizations including Adopt-a-Soldier, where she corresponds and sends care packages to a US solider overseas, and Sunday Nights Together, a program that provides a Sunday evening meal to hundreds of homeless in our community each week.  Megan has also started an organization to promote literacy called Kids READ!  She has collected over 13,000 books which she has distributed all over the county to individuals and organizations.  Megan’s involvement in community service is very hands-on.  She helps prepare the meals, set-up and clean-up for Sunday Nights Together.  She stays connected to her adopted soldier by corresponding frequently and sending a monthly care package.  Megan saves one-third of her weekly allowance, which her parent’s match, then donates the money to the charity of her choice.  For fun, the selfless teen, enjoys reading, going to musicals and attending UCLA games with her family.
