We are excitedly looking forward to the start of a new school year. We have a few announcements for back to school so that you don't miss anything.
First, we have created a back to school supply wish list. In an effort to make sure all of our students and teachers have access to the supplies they need, donations will be divide amongst all classrooms. There is a sign-up link in the right hand column of this page which will take you to this list.

The Fairmont Spell-A-Thon has raised over $6,500 — the highest amount raised since the event was started seven years ago. Kudos to all students and their families for their generous donations to this academics-based fundraiser. A big thank you also to the teachers and staff for their instrumental support in making this event successful. All money will go towards PTA-funded programs such as Mr. Mark's music program, Dr. Heather's science program, the 5th grade science camp, and the library program.

Students and staff have participated in a pilot program called Waste Matters hosted by The Watershed Project for the last three years.

For these efforts, Fairmont receive 4 awards from the Sustainable Contra Costa 2015 Award Program including:
