News and Updates from FSMA

Building Community

One of the things Governor Markell noticed about our classrooms was the strong sense of community being developed in the Morning Meetings he visited. Our teachers work hard to ensure that children feel like they are cared for and have a sense of belonging in their classrooms. But, the community feeling is also important at a larger level. Special days like we had on Monday allow us to come together as a school community. Here are a few upcoming community building events that are happening in school and out of school:


FSMA Ice-Skating Event: December 21st (5:30 - 7:00 p.m.) at Wilmington Skating Club

Pajama Day: December 22nd - students are allowed to wear appropriate pajamas and bring a stuffed animal that fits inside their backpack

FSMA Oasis Night: January 12 - "Jumping for Joy" together from 6 - 8.

FSMA PTO Night: Come out and help us plan for the rest of the year!

Adult Community Event: January 23rd at Famous Tim's


Again, while some of these are fundraisers for our school, it is more about creating opportunities for children and families to engage with each other outside of the regular school activities.
