Our events are one of the things that make Fairmount fantastic. Our events are more than fundraisers–They are fun, social, energetic family gatherings that strengthen our mulit-cultural community and rally our families around our children’s happiness. Every year we run the following events:
An outdoor evening family dance. Held in September.
A wonderfully warm cultural experience for the whole family. Lights set the dance floor aglow at dusk as adults learn salsa, children play with glow sticks and we all give each other smiles, hugs and perhaps a rose.
Classroom performances and the annual raffle! Hosted in December.
Right before the break, we gather together to listen to our children sing and watch them dance. We grin at lop-sided antlers, amazing moves and forgotten lyrics while drinking hot cocoa (and hope our name gets drawn for the grand prize in the raffle!)
An adult-only silent auction! Held in March.
Get a sitter. Dress up, but wear comfortable shoes — dancing all night will be hard to resist! Enjoy a catered dinner and live entertainment while keeping an eagle eye on all the items you’ve bid on in the silent auction!
A wonderful afternoon carnival and fiesta all wrapped into one! Typically celebrated the first weekend in May.
Games, rides, sometimes even ponies! Face painting, popcorn, arts and crafts! Make up and hair booths! Bicycle rodeos! If it were any more fun… it couldn’t be legal.
