ARTIST IN RESIDENCE - Locally renowned artists come to Fawn Mountain to work intensely with our students to incorporate art into the material they are studying at the time. Local artists incorporate theater, dance, music, painting, pottery, cedar bark weaving, paper mache, and more to bring an artistic touch to the curriculum.
SWIMMING - Depending on the grade, students go swim at our aquatic center anywhere between 7 and 17 times per year. 2nd through 6th grades get to take a 2 week survival swimming course.
Aquaponics - Thanks to The Chief Petty Officers Association and parent volunteers we have an aquaponics grow room at Fawn Mountain. This relatively new project has been a learning adventure and we are still dialing it in, but we have already started growing lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and more.
EAGLE PRESS - Our students and staff produce a video where numerous topics are covered such as staff interviews, lunch menus, and school news. The content, filming, and editing are done by students.
KITE NIGHT - Each year we hold Kite Night. Families come to Fawn Mountain and together build a kite, then head outside to fly our decorated kites.
BATTLE OF THE BOOKS - Our 3rd - 6th grade students are recognized as a local and state powerhouse in the yearly Battle of the Books competition.
FREE BREAKFAST FOR ALL - As a school community we opted out of the federal free breakfast program so that we could offer a free breakfast to anyone who was interested and make it a healthier breakfast. Every morning Misty whips up a homeade breakfast. Thank you to Misty and our amazing PTA!!!
FAMILY FUND - Every week our school community sells popcorn to help Fawn Mountain families that might be in need. We believe in academics, but understand that empathy and character development are just as important.
These are just a few of the reasons that makes Fawn Mountain Elementary a unique and special place!
