SHOW & TELL
The Academic Pentathlon, sponsored by the Orange County Department of Education, held its annual award ceremony on the evening of April 12th at the Heritage Forum in Anaheim. Fairmont was represented by the Mable, Edgewood, and Anaheim Hills campuses in a night that turned out to be very exciting for our students. Mable had two teams in seventh and two teams in eighth grade. All four of our teams did extremely well, garnering awards in several categories across the board. Among the awards earned this year were:
7th Grade, Fairmont Mable
2nd place Super Quiz; 4th place Overall Team award
7thGrade, Fairmont Panthers
4th place Super Quiz; 2nd place Overall Team award
8th Grade, Fairmont Mable

8th Grade, Fairmont Panthers

In a wonderful display of academic prowess, both eighth grade teams tied for first place in the Science Super Quiz. Overall, all of our junior high students performed admirably, both individually and on their teams. We are very proud of these students, and we thank them, their families, and their Pentathlon coaches for another year of hard work and dedication.

Science Fair Update
After the very successful Science Fair last February, twenty students were invited to present their projects at the Orange County Science Fair on April 6. The eleven students below won awards on that day, and six of them will be moving forward to the California State Science fair to be held at USC on May 2nd and 3rd. Four of those students were also Broadcom Master Award winners. Mr. Briner, our science teacher, accompanied our students to the event, and we could all see the high caliber of the projects presented by schools from all over Orange County. Students were judged multiple times within their allotted time, and they had to effectively present and answer demanding questions from the judges. This was an outstanding year for the Mable students at the Fair, and we congratulate all of the participants and winners for their impressive performance.
