SCHOOL NEWS happily ever after summer



I know what you're thinking...it's not officially spring yet, so it's much too soon to start thinking about summer!  I guess that depends upon who you are.  Most of our students here at Fairmont think it's NEVER too soon to start thinking about summer.  And Fairmont Summer Programs' staff have summer on the brain all year long, dreaming up ways to make summer break fun, exciting, and educational for the children who attend Fairmont's camp, school and enrichment workshops.

This year, we put our heads together to create a whimsical "Happily Ever After" theme complete with dragons, princesses, castles, and knights-in-shining-armor.  We were inspired by the Albert Einstein quote, "If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.  If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." (Follow our Pinterest Board for fairy tale-inspired crafts, activities and more)

Studies show that today's kids need more practice using their imagination, developing their creativity, and strengthening their relationships with others.  These skills are must-haves for the big, wide 21st century world where our children are headed one day. In addition to building academic skills and confidence, Fairmont's summer programs help kids think beyond the textbook and learn how to connect with others.

If you're just warming up to the idea of planning your kids' summer schedule, visit fairmontsummerprograms.com for all the details about Fairmont Summer Programs.  Fairmont offers flexible scheduling to suit the needs of busy families with programs at all four of Fairmont's Orange County campus locations. Enroll before April 30th, and you can take advantage of 10%-off summer camp and summer school!
