SCHOOL NEWS anaheim hills cougar chorus sings at senior center

On Saturday, Oct 23, 62 members of the Anaheim Hills Cougar Chorus spent their Saturday morning singing at the Sunrise Senior Living Center in Yorba Linda.  Fairmont’s chorus entertained residents with songs including “Simple Gifts” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” After a short ensemble performance, chorus members paired-up with “grandmas” and “grandpas” to play hand-clapping games and sing silly songs.  This is the first off-site performance for the Cougar Chorus which is made up of children from third-fifth grade and is conducted by Anaheim Hills Music Specialist Mrs. SarahLynn Zavoral.

One of a Kind Walk
On October 17th, over 14,000 Walkers strolled through Disneyland, Disney California Adventure Park and Downtown Disney for the 20th Annual CHOC Walk in the Park in support of CHOC. Children's.
Walkers raised close to 2 million dollars in support of the Orange County Children’s Hospital. The Citron Campus had a small group of walkers that got to experience this one of a kind walk this year. When you arrive at Disneyland you are overwhelmed by the number of families that are walking for their loved one or in support of a child. As we walk through the park we are joined by many familiar Disney friends and were cheered on by supporting cast members and families. We had many unique photo opportunities, and definitely felt like kids again. At the end of the 5K the celebration continued in the Downtown Disney area where event sponsors, shops, and restaurants had special offers for all. Our Citron group enjoyed participating in the Choc walk this year and we can’t wait for the next one.

Red Ribbon Week 
A giant red ribbon once again hung around Mable's iconic fig tree to celebrate Red Ribbon Week. Student representatives from grades one through sixth tied the ribbon on Monday, and the first through fourth grade classes decorated their doors with anti-drug slogans throughout the week. A sea of red appeared at Wednesday's flag salute as the children had free dress to wear red clothing. 

Red Ribbon Week was established in 1985 to honor Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique "KiKi" Camarena, who lost his life fighting to end Southern California's drug problem.  During the week of October 18th, children across the nation made their unified pledge to stay off  drugs.

Mable's Physical Education and Sports Programs
Mable Campus athletics have entered full swing, and the Panthers continue to excel. The girl's 5th / 6th grade volleyball team is 2-0, while the boy's football team holds a 1-0 record. Our elementary athletes participate in a developmental league, which serves as a stepping stone for our junior high league. Currently the Junior High teams are midway through their season and will be preparing for play-offs at the beginning of November.

The Junior High and Elementary teams both strive for excellence on and off the field. Our student athletes must maintain their high level of academic excellence and uphold proper behavior around campus. This week, we held our first pep rally to honor our student athletes.  The rally featured the annual football toss pairing one teacher and two students from each grade level. Congratulations to the 2nd grade team-comprised of Mrs. Quintana, Kimi K. and Justin L.-for winning this year's toss.
Whether our students participate in team sports or not, all develop important physical talents through our physical education program. The girls are currently learning volleyball techniques in P.E. while the boys are finishing their football skills unit. We also started a health program for our 6th grade students. Some of the areas that will be discussed and covered include proper health and wellness, stress management, self-esteem, and proper nutrition and exercise.  We are proud to offer physical education every day at Fairmont, especially when so many other schools have reduced or cut their programs.

We encourage all students to continue striving for excellence and to stay fit. We wish them good luck in working towards our 30-mile running club, and we will honor those students who have been a positive role model on and off the court with the Panther of the Month Award.
