STUDENT ACTIVITIES: Battle of the Sexes Rally

On Friday, January 27th, the Huskies had their successful Battle of the Sexes rally. The theme was “Baby Battle of the Sexes,” and the gym was filled with baby pink and blue-colored balloons and other decorations. The rally had fresh, new games, including a race in which the teachers had to ride a small tricycle while being attacked by the balloons that ASB was throwing. In the teacher race, Ms. Lucia won and accumulated points for the girls. Great job Ms. Lucia!! However, in the student race, which included dressing up build-a-bears, melting ice that contained a tiny doll in the core, and searching for a pacifier in a mashed potato salad.  However, in the end the boys won along with the points.  The boys also won points for Tug-of-War, and overall, the males won the Battle of the Sexes Rally! Congratulations! Thank you to all of our participants for volunteering and playing the rally games! We hope you had fun!

CLUBS: Free the Slaves

Free the Slaves has been a very productive club in the past two years at Fairmont, and it is truly a shame that we only have the opportunity to recognize them in a better light.  This club held a benefit concert to raise money and awareness for these slaves across the globe.  This event was was a collaboration with University High and together they raised over one thousand dollars in less than two hours.  Some of our very own Fairmont students participated in the concert.  Aditii Sinha, president of the club, was one of the singers for the concert.  As a high school student Aditi Sinha, knows that her avenues are limited, but still does her best to support a good cause .  "I was inspired to become an anti-slavery activist after attending Free the Slaves annual Freedom Awards Show in 2008."  With her friends and family, Aditi has done a trememdous job and still strives for more.  Lets help her and Free the Slaves!
