CLUBS: TedEd Club

 
Here's a special shout out to the TedEd Club! Last week they hosted a wonderful party, designed to evoke fun, creative ideas. This club is making strides in voicing the innovative and progressive thoughts of their members. Furthermore, they may be one of the most welcoming clubs on Fairmont's campus. Anyone is free to join at any time, as long as they're willing to participate with spirit! The TedEd Club is giving a voice to our students as well as encouraging new-age thinking among youth.  Please support the TedEd Club and be sure to join in on the fun if you are interested!

COMMUNITY SERVICE: Holiday Break Opprotunities


Hey Huskies! What are you doing for the holidays? Well, it's a great time to do some community service. Remember seniors! You only have a few more months to complete your 80 hour community service requirement and now is the time to finish up. There are hundreds of opportunities that have to do with toy drives. You can reach out to your local Boys and Girls Club, CHOC, or even Kid Healthy. That is not the only option. You can visit nursing homes on December 23-25 for an organization called The Holiday Project! Take the opportunity to bring joy to your community this holiday! All the options and details are in the link at the bottom. Have an amazing Winter Break Huskies!

PERFORMING ARTS: John Lennon & Me

This semester’s play, John Lennon & Me, is a heart-wrenching story about a girl with cystic fibrosis whose friendships change her life forever. Star (Joy Zhao) meets Courtney (Mina Brar) and their story begins. These two girls, with hardships of their own to overcome, start to understand each other as they eventually realize that life should be lived to its fullest. On Friday, December 5th, the cast and crew of John Lennon & Me will welcome a very special guest, Taylor Ross. Taylor was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 7 and she will be sharing her story with the audience. We strongly encourage you to come and show support for not only our cast but for Taylor as well on Friday, December 5th. John Lennon & Me will no doubt have you laughing and crying from this incredible story. Also, 50% of ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Orange County.

Buy your ticket and watch the show - you will receive 1 hour of community service from Mrs. Kunkle.
 
John Lennon and Me:
Thursday December 4th  @ 7pm
Friday December 5th  @ 7pm
Saturday December 6th  @ 2pm & 7pm

See you in the audience!
