Dear Families,

The office will begin sending out monthly newsletters at this point. We will continue to email special announcements and keep our Facebook page current, but feel you get most all you need from our grade level and explo newsletters. We don't want to flood your inbox too much!


This week brings us a tremendous speaker on Monday, continued club and sports activities and our regional Special Olympics competition Friday at South Callaway. We will send off our amazing FMS Olympians with a parade in their honor before they load the buses.


Thank you for all you do and we hope you have an awesome week!


Sincerely,

Beth and Erica

Proud Principals, Fulton Middle School

Upcoming Events-Megan Meier Foundation Assembly

We write today to inform and invite you to a very important awareness and educational event at our school with Tina Meier. Tina is a nationally acclaimed cybersafety speaker whose daughter took her own life at age 13 following a severe cyberbullying attack provoked by an adult neighbor. We hear time and time again that one of your greatest fears as a parent is the possibility that your child could be victimized or harmed online. Therefore, we continue to try and provide parents and youth information aimed to proactively protect and prevent these concerns from becoming reality. Megan’s story provides students with real, first-hand knowledge of the impact of bullying and cyberbullying for the purpose of building empathetic understanding. The presentation will provide your child up-to-date information about the potential online and offline dangers. Additionally, students will be empowered to be the solution and say “NO” to bullying in our school. All content will be adjusted for age-appropriateness. Tina is the Founder and Executive Director of the Megan Meier Foundation (www.meganmeierfoundation.org). Following the loss of her daughter, Tina made it her personal mission to speak out about her daughter’s experiences with bullying, cyberbullying, and suicide. She has presented to over 300,000 students, parents, educators, and professionals since 2008 and has participated in national anti-bullying campaigns including the Presidential Conference on Bullying Prevention at the invitation of The White House and the U.S. Department of Education. We are truly excited about Tina’s visit and anticipate this to be a very beneficial experience for our students. Our programs will be on Monday, October 1st and we will have a 6th grade program starting at 8:20 a.m. and a 7th and 8th grade program starting at 9:55 a.m. Parents are welcome to attend. This assembly is co-sponsored by FMS Student Council and FMS Student Ambassadors. Our ambassadors and Stuco officers saw Tina last year and wanted to bring her message to all students at FMS. Should you have any questions regarding this program, please do not hesitate to contact our offices.
