Kindergarten Tours - December 14th

Have an incoming Kindergartener or a friend with children starting Kindergarten next year? Please join us December 14th in the MPR at 8:45 AM.

Current parents, we would be happy to have extra help, especially if you speak a second language and already have a student at Fairmont, please come and help answer any questions that our incoming parents have. If possible, wear your Fairmont shirts so that people can easily identify you.

Incoming parents, come hear about all the exciting things that are going on at Fairmont, and talk with the Principal, Kindergarten teachers, and Fairmont parents about your questions.

Books for the Holidays

Keep your kids reading over the winter break! It is a great time to discover new stories. Pick out a free book at the Fairmont Book Exchange. You will find two bookcases full of books in the primary grade hallway and a third bookcase full of books in the upper grade hallway. Please encourage your students to pick something up to read over the break.
