Boxes of Love!
We are kicking off our annual "Box of Love" Drive on Monday, October 12 to Friday, November 2.  Every year Fairmont Anaheim Hills Campus is the #1 school to support Canning Hunger in their effort to feed the hunger of Orange County.

This year, with help from generous people like you, we will collect and distribute "Boxes of Love" and putting them into the hands of thousands of hungry kids and their families here in Southern California. Each family will receive a traditional holiday meal of potatoes, rice, pinto beans, corn, green beans, soup, bread, fruit, juice, dessert and more.

"Box of Love" is an opportunity for you to help the hungry, homeless, widows and orphans. Your gift of a complete holiday meal for a family of 6-8 people is wrapped up in a simple cardboard box and will provide hope and warm to those that are in need. 

Denim Day--Pink and Denim Rule!
Denim Day was a wonderful success.  It was so amazing to see all the pink and red in the halls. Thank you so very much to fourth grade teacher, Marci Schafer and sixth grade parent, Kristin Davtyan for coordinating  this philanthropic effort. Over $2,500 has been raised--thank you to all our amazing students and parents for supporting Breast Cancer Research!

Parent Conference Month
It is our belief that a friendly and cooperative relationship between home and school is important to your child's growth and development. Because of this, we urge each of you to attend parent teacher conferences during the month of October.  These conferences will be held before and after school during the entire month. Some conferences will be scheduled on Friday, October 19th, our Parent Conference Day.   Please try to keep the scheduled appointment as it has been made with special consideration in mind. Please keep in mind that there is no school on October 19th. Child care will be provided only during your scheduled conference. Thank you.

Parking Lot
The FRONT parking lot is reserved for Pre-School parking only.
If your child is JK-8th grade please park in the EAST parking lot or use our drive-through pick-up and drop off.

Please slow down in the preschool parking lot and in the EAST parking lot. We know we are all in a hurry all the time but our children's safety is truly the most important. PLEASE SLOW DOWN.

Please hold your child's hand in the parking lot, quite often we see children running ahead of their parents as cars are driving in and out and backing up.

Book Fair
Fall is in the air and so is the BOOK FAIR!  We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.
Our Scholastic Book Fair theme this year is "All-Star: Every Reader is a Star!" This is part of an exciting reading event that brings to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging, and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they'll get.

Dates:  Friday, October 12-Thursday, October 18
Hours: 7:30am-8:30am 3:00pm-4:00pm
Special Extended Hours: Tuesday, October 16, 3:00pm-6:00pm
Pre-school Shopping Special Day  Friday, October 12, 12:00pm-12:30pm

If you would like to volunteer to work at the Book Fair, sign up outside the Library.

How To Maximize Your Parent/Teacher Conference

Few things make a parent beam with pride more than a glowing review from a teacher. We love to hear that our children are bright, hard-working and responsible, and, chances are, that's just what you'll hear at your upcoming parent/teacher conference. Keep in mind that it is also a valuable opportunity to dig a little deeper and find out areas where your child may need support.

In order to make the most of this experience, it helps to do your homework. Think ahead about any concerns you may have and be prepared to share them with your child's teacher in an open and non-threatening way. Share important details about your child that the teacher may not know and that could help maximize your child's success in the classroom. Take advantage of the teacher's unique perspective to get a well-rounded picture of how your child is doing socially and emotionally as well as academically.

Let these tips from Scholastic be your guide and you'll be on your way to a productive parent teacher conference.

Before the Teacher Conference
Start preparing early. Don't wait until the night before to get organized. Create a folder at the beginning of the year in which you store test scores, big homework assignments, and your notes (about things your child has told you or any other topics you want to address).
Talk to your child. Ask how he or she's doing in class, what's going on during lunchtime, recess, and when he or she goes to special classes like music or gym.

During the Teacher Conference

Arrive early. With only a few precious minutes to spend, you don't want to be late. It will shorten your time with your child's teacher and affect her day's entire schedule.

Enter with the right attitude. The goal of both the teacher and the parent should be the success of the student, but sometimes parents have a hard time discussing tough issues. Rather than put the teacher on the defensive, arrive with a compliment to start the conference off on the right foot. ("My son is really enjoying the unit on space" or "We had a great time on the field trip.") Then address any concerns in a respectful way.

Find out the communication protocol. Don't let this be the only time you talk to your child's teacher. Ask how he or she likes to communicate, whether it's by e-mail, notes passed through a folder, or phone calls.

After the Teacher Conference

Follow up. If the teacher brings something to your attention that needs to be addressed with your child, take steps to put the plan in motion, whether it's helping with organizational skills, getting extra help, or addressing a social issue.

Update your child. Start with the positive things his or her teacher had to say, then fill him or her in on any concerns you and the teacher discussed. Explain how you can all work together to ensure your child has a successful year.
