Summer Blog Post

Hello!

We hope this blog post finds you and your families safe, healthy, and enjoying summer. The start of school is quickly approaching!

Note from Mrs. Mead

This summer has gone by so quickly! I have been busy taking care of my two young kids, reading, and spending as much time outside as possible. I have also enjoyed watching the Olympics and teaching my oldest about this tradition. I am looking forward to see all of your faces at the start of the school year and sharing some of the books I read over the summer!

Note from Ms. Jeffrey

I hope that you all have enjoyed some fun and relaxation this summer. I have been busily reading books from this year's Golden Dome Award list. I have really enjoyed being able to spend time with friends and family over the past few weeks. I am looking forward to the new school year and getting to know all of you!

FMS Water Fountains

Water fountains will only be available to fill water bottles. Students may NOT use them as a direct drinking fountain. Please be sure to send your child to school everyday with a water bottle.

- pencil case

- glue sticks

FMS After School Information

It is important what we know your child's after school plans each day. Copies of the form will be sent home to families. Of course, parents and guardians may choose to fill it out ahead of time and send in with their child on the first day of school.
