High School/College Counselor Information Night
Fairmont Preparatory Academy College Counselor, Jonathan Dunn will be here on Tuesday, April 17 from 6:30-7:30pm. Mr. Dunn will be talking with parents about the high school and college application process and how to prepare your child for success in these intensive processes. Did You Know?
The Fairmont Preparatory Academy Concert Choir, Concert Band and Show Choir have been honored with an invitation to participate in the London Festival of Music?
These 45 Fairmont Prep music students, grades 9-12 compete annually, nationally as well as locally. In April 2008 the groups attained national ranking, which earned them invitations to perform in such exotic locales as Germany, Austria, China, and a number of cities throughout the United States. Prior to London, the students have competed in San Francisco, New York, Hawaii.
London is their first opportunity to compete internationally. Additionally, the Concert Choir has been invited to sing Eucharist mass at St Paul's Cathedral and Covenant Garden, and to perform at Regent Park. The Choirs and Band leave April 2 and return April 8. We're wishing them lots of luck!

March Lunch Menus
2nd Grade Musical, Nuts!
Incoming! Look out below! The big oak tree is shedding her acorns all over the forest floor! On Thursday, March 22, the 2nd graders performed the musical Nuts directed by our music teacher, Mrs. Zavoral. The show was performed for the JK, Kindergarten and 1st grade students.
In full costume, the 2nd graders took the audience on a comical journey through the circle of life, reinforcing what they have learned in their science classes. Students were sneezing cashews, Hawaiian coconuts, and muscular chestnuts. Each 2nd grader also had a speaking part, and there were several solo singers and a group dance. The performers did a super, duper job!
