SCHOOL NEWS student artists shine in competition


First Grader, Courtnie B. from the Fairmont Mable Campus took 1st Place in the Water is Life Poster Contest for this adorable piece. She will receive her award at the Angel's Game on May 16. 
At Fairmont, we believe in the importance of a well-rounded curriculum that includes fine and performing art. We give every student the opportunity for artistic expression in weekly art classes with a designated art teacher. In addition to projects for class, students are encouraged to create artwork to submit to local art festivals and competitions. This spring many of our students have been recognized for their submissions. Here are some of our spring art highlights: 

Water is Life Poster Contest 
On May 16 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim we will celebrate the winners of the Water is Life poster contest. Each year Anaheim Public Utilities hosts the annual water conservation poster contest as part of the celebration of May as Water Awareness Month in California. First through sixth graders are invited to participate in this contest. Three winners are selected from each grade. Winning posters are displayed in the lobby of Anaheim West Tower and trophies are presented at a ceremony prior to an Anaheim Angels baseball game. First place winners also receive a $100 savings bond. Students and their families will be treated to an Angel's game where they will receive a special trophy, hat and the chance to be on the field before the game starts.
