Fundraising Opportunities


Fairmont's Ninth Annual Spell-a-thon is here!  Spelling helps improve reading and writing fluency.  All of the funds raised go to PTA sponsored programs like music, Playworks, field trips and the outdoor science program.  Please start gathering your pledges or use our online system.  You can sign up at: http://pledgestar.com/fairmont.

Spelling tests will be given the first week in February.  Pledges are due February 16th.  Prizes include a gift certificate for a Nook from Barnes and Noble and a Harry Potter Complete book set.  Help your student by practicing their spelling list and gathering pledges for Fairmont.  Thank you!
