Make-Up School Pictures
Wednesday, October 26
If your child missed the original picture day day or you would like to have their picture re-taken, Lifetouch will be here on October 26. If you are re-taking the picture please send the picture package you initially received as the photographer needs to know which package you have already paid for. If your child missed the first picture day please send the payment envelope (you should have already received it last week). If you do not have the envelope, there are extras at the front desk.
Please note: There is a Teacher In-Service on Friday, November 4 - there will be NO SCHOOL on this day.
Nutrition Education Presentations
Leslie Kay of Nutrition Management Services spoke to all our Pre-school 3 year olds to Kindergarten students about the importance of fruits and vegetables. They talked about many great veggies and fruits for all our students to try. She showed them eggplants, lots of different colors of potatoes, and showed them brussel sprouts on the stalk! They also all sang the song about trying to have 5 servings of fruits and vegetable every day. All the students had a tasty treat of celery, carrots and ranch dressing...it was so much fun to see them chomping away on veggies!
Red Ribbon Week
Each and every year schools around the country, including Fairmont Private Schools, set aside one week in October for Red Ribbon Week. The students wear a red wristband throughout the week without much of a thought as to why we designate this week as Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week was officially proclaimed by Congress in 1988, and there were many events that led up to Congress' official declaration.
In 1985, a team of Drug Enforcement Agency officers were kidnapped and subsequently murdered by Mexican drug cartels. These murders came as retaliation for agent Enrique "Kiki" Camerena's efforts to eradicate a huge drug trafficking operation in Mexico.
To honor Kiki Camerena, people in California began wearing red ribbons as a symbol to encourage people to "Say 'No' to Drugs" and started "Camarena Clubs" to encourage high school students to pledge to live a drug-free life. Eventually, the clubs grew and caught the attention of Nancy Reagan, then First Lady of the United States. With her help, they were able to have Congress proclaim an official "Red Ribbon Week" in 1988.
Next week, during Anaheim Hills Campus' Red Ribbon Week, don't forget to wear your red wristband proudly and declare "NO" to drugs and alcohol in honor of agent Camerena and his hard work in fighting against drugs.
