ARTS & CRAFTS dad's day

Father's day is just around the corner, and while Dad may not always be into arts & crafts, no Dad can deny how much a handmade gift means to him. Here are some fun gift ideas from Disney Family Fun that are perfect for papa. We'd love to hear your craft ideas too!
"Dress up" this fun card with a tie made from your favorite scrapbook paper and a note. Dad will wish he looked this good :) 

What Dad doesn't want to be King for the Day? Print and color this crown with your Dad's favorite colors and deliver it to him along with a homemade breakfast. 

For the Dad that's always on the go, these fun luggage tags are the perfect gift. 

Wishing you all a great Father's Day!

SCHOOL NEWS fairmont students honored at annual trash artist challenge awards

"Harry Potter Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry"
The old saying goes: "one person's trash is another person's treasure." Well, the annual Trash Artisit Challenge says trash can not only be treasure, but art!! On June 8, 2011 at the Anaheim Hilton, Fairmont students Jyothii K., Bryan D., and Justin C. were invited to attend the Trash Artist Challenge awards, celebration and dinner. Our two sixth grade teams were finalists in this year's competition. 
"Come Alive-the story of Little Red Riding Hood"
Bryan and Justin along with many students from Mrs. Cameron’s 6th grade class created the Harry Potter’s Hogwarts school. Jyothii created “Come Alive”--the story of Little Red Riding Hood in 3-D. All materials were recycled.
Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait
Kent French, the Host/Producer of the Anaheim Ducks, was the Master of Ceremonies. Mayor Tom Tait from Anaheim was also in attendance, and he even introduced himself to Bryan and Justin during the showcase. Jyothii’s father, Bryan’s mom and Justin’s mom were glowing with pride. (not to mention their art teacher!)

Water Fun

Summer Camp Preview
We invite you to bring your children along for a fun filled sample camp day while you enjoy a coffee break, run some errands, or just take time to relax. The Summer Camp Preview is for children entering Preschool, Jr. Kindergarten, or Kindergarten. There is limited space so please RSVP with Mrs. Elly Santamaria at 714-533-3930 by the end of June 3rd.  All attendees will be entered in a drawing to win a FREE week of Fairmont Summer Camp! 

Summer Camp Preview will be held Saturday, June 4th from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Fairmont Citron Campus.

Overcoming Obstacles Fundraiser
In light of the many tragic, global disasters in recent months the Citron Campus would like to support all those affected. We feel the best way to do this is to have students join together in a campus spirit event to support the Red Cross of America. 

In order to accommodate all age groups on the campus, and to make it fun, we have decided to have the students participate in an obstacle course event. 

Pledge forms were sent home with each student. There will be extras located in the Citron office lobby. Pledge forms with money must be returned to the front office no later than Friday, June 3rd. The Overcoming Obstacles Event will take place on Wednesday, June 8th. 

We want to make this as easy as possible thus we are asking for a flat sponsorship of any amount you consider appropriate.

We hope you, your family, and friends will support the students and this worthy cause.

1st Grade Corner
Please join us for a special meet and greet reception to welcome our new Mable Campus 1st grade co-teachers. The teachers will be at the Citron Campus during the day working with the students in Kindergarten and will be available in the afternoon to meet parents. Thank you for helping us welcome the newest members to our Fairmont family and we look forward to a great year with your family.

Talon The Traveler
Edgewood students! In 1994, Dale Hubert, a 3rd Grade teacher in Canada, began the Flat Stanley Project. He invited other teachers to take part by hosting flat visitors and to encourage their students to write their own Flat Stanley journals.  (Flat Stanley Project)

The Edgewood flat "Traveling Talon" Mascot is being sent home so he can hang out with you during your summer vacation. Talon can hike a mountain, go on a cruise ship, meet Mickey Mouse at Disneyland, spend the night at grandma's house, water ski at the lake, surf at the beach, watch movies, go to birthday parties, and more. Take a picture of him everywhere you go!

During the first month of school, we will gather your pictures and have a Traveling Talon assembly.

You can share your "Traveling Talon" adventures and pictures in two ways:
1. You can post them on the Edgewood Facebook page.
2. You can send one or two of your favorite Traveling Talon pictures to Mrs. Powell's email address,

8th grade students entertain little ones at the Bruce Hockman Carnival

Bruce Hockman Carnival   
On Friday, May 27th, eighth graders from Mable, Edgewood and Anaheim Hills campuses sponsored the 32nd annual Bruce Hockman Carnival. There were twenty-eight booths ranging from hairspray and marriage to horseshoes and fortune telling.The youngest visitors from Citron, Anaheim Hills, and Edgewood campuses loved the wands and halos and face painting booths while the older students gravitated to the inflatables. After saying goodbye to the other campuses, Mable eighth graders played on the inflatables while the seventh graders cleaned up. "It was hard work but fun to raise money for ASB," remembers Meera Mistry. "I liked working in the hairspray booth," said Alvin Chu. "The little kids were so excited and so creative."
