FPS Cheer Team Wins Third Place in the Nation!
Last Friday, our FPS cheer team along with mostly moms and a couple of dads and siblings flew to Orlando Florida to participate in the National High School Cheerleading Championship in the Youth Recreational Category, sponsored by the Universal Cheerleaders Association known as UCA.
The National High School Cheerleading Championship (NHSCC) is the most prestigious cheerleading championship in the country. The NHSCC is held at the Walt Disney WorldŽ Resort in Orlando, Florida, and nationally televised on ESPN and ESPN2 to over 100 million homes and 32 countries nationwide each year.
Our team, coached by Ms. Bradley and Mrs. Yujuico, did a phenomenal job. They took the stage in front of hundreds of people and displayed confidence and energy while delivering a great routine. The coaches knew that our team would be challenged when it came to the degree of difficulty in their routine. The message they gave the girls was to work towards their strengths and to connect with the crowd. They did exactly that and it resulted in a finish making them third in the nation in a pool of seven teams. Watching our team take command of the stage was inspiring. They had such a sharp performance that it was undeniable that they deserved to be amongst the top teams in their category.

Congratulations girls on your representation of Fairmont and your team and coaches!

Open House - No School
6:00 - 8:00 pm
We are all looking forward to this year's Open House! From preschool to 8th grade, everyone is busy finishing their Open House projects to show off to parents and friends.
Open House season is here! That means it's time for students and their teachers to "show off" everything that has been going on since school started in the fall. No one loves Open House more than moms and dads who can't wait to be wowed by all of the incredible work on display. With that in mind, here are a few Dos and Don'ts to get the most out of your Open House experience.
From the Fairmont Blog:
DO let your child guide you around the classroom and campus to any special displays or presentations. Pay special attention as he or she shares personal work with you. This is a precious opportunity to say "great job" and to reinforce the life lesson that hard work pays off.
DON'T compare your child's work with that of his or her classmates. Every child is unique with his or her own strong suits. I know it's tempting to wonder out loud why your child's handwriting isn't as neat as Susie's, but now is not the time. If something really concerns you, schedule a conference to talk it over with your child's teacher.
DO make a point of praising your child's teacher. Let him or her know how great the room looks and how impressed you are with all of the student work on display. Open House is a big night for teachers, who, don't get enough kudos for all that they do. Let your child's teacher know how much you appreciate his or her hard work in preparation of Open House and throughout the year.
DON'T pull your child's teacher aside for an impromptu conference. You'll put the teacher in an awkward position, and you won't get his or her undivided attention. If something is on your mind, plan to discuss it at a more appropriate time.
DO visit other classrooms including the rooms of teachers in the next grade up from your child's current grade. This is a wonderful time for you and your child to check out what it's like to "move-up" to the next grade. You'll also have an opportunity to meet art, music, science lab and other specialty teachers and find out a little more about what goes on in these programs.
DON'T forget to bring your camera so you can post some awesome pictures on Facebook the day after the big night!
