Week Of the Young Child Pictures
Fairmont Summer Programs
Summer is just around the corner and we have been planning all of our summer games and activities since last November! We have so many 'crafty-crafts' and wonderful science projects planned that your child will never want to go home! At last week's summer camp preview day our 'campers' made 50-topping ice cream sundaes, played clothes pin tag, and made "dragon-scales" for our big giant dragon that will be visiting this summer!
Take Me Out to the Angel Game!
Fairmont Family Night at the Angel Stadium was a huge success and it was so wonderful to see all of the Fairmont families out
together! There was popcorn and crackerjacks and even an lofty attempt at starting a "Fairmont Wave" from our section. All of our kids were running all over catching up with their classmates on this delightfully warm and pleasant evening. Better yet, the Angels WON! We even had two home runs hit right in front of us!
"A Typical Day in Music Class" Program
On May 2, the Jr. Kindergarten and Kindergarten
students impressed their parents with a musical performance called "A Typical Day in Music Class." From beginning to end, the performance was conducted just like music class. Students sang nursery rhymes and songs, danced to music by Tchaikovsky and Vivaldi, played percussive instruments, and participated in critical listening games. The parents joined their children in games like "Johnny Get Your Haircut" and "Talking Piano." The highlight of the performance was the special
finale when both the JK and Kindergarten students came together on stage to perform "Funga Alafia." This West African folk song has become a tradition for the students to sing each year because it is about friendship. During the song, the children played rhythm sticks, maracas, finger cymbals and our special African tubano drums, creating a magnificent sound of joy and unity!
We want to thank our teachers for all their help! Our music teacher, Mrs. Zavoral, directed the show with the tremendous support of Mrs. Foeldi, Mrs. Bush, Ms. Jensen, Miss Johnson, and Miss Dominguez.
