Cardinal Family Newsletter

It's A Great Day to Be a Cardinal!

April 13-17

Dear FFMS Students, Parents and Guardians:

We are entering into our fourth week of online learning and we want you to know how much we appreciate everyone working through the learning curves and communicating with your children's teachers and your children to transition to online learning. We know the challenges this had brought to all of our families in addition to your other daily responsibilities. I am very thankful to the students, families and teachers for all their assistance and patience during this time.

Hopefully you have been able to create a daily routine that works for your family. We will continue trying to communicate and reach out to our families and students as we continue with the online learning. Here are some reminders :


* Lessons will be posted by Monday afternoon

* Lessons are posted on Schoology

* Lessons will be checked throughout the week and Progress book will be updated on Fridays

* Daily lessons per a subject should range from 15-30 minutes worth of school work.

* Teachers are accessible for questions from 9-3 through email

* Students will receive invites for Google Meets to meet with teachers.


Please reach out to to any of the teachers or me as situations arise or if you are having difficulty with anything. We are here to help and work together.


Although I would much rather see the students in person, I am glad to be able to see them in the Google Meet sessions,. We are fortunate to have that technology to help us still be connected .


Please reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns or something I can help you with. I want to help any way I can.


Thank you and have a great week!


Mrs. Hiler

Hopefully you had an opportunity to talk with your children about their survey results and to learning more about their strengths. Below you will find a link where you can take a free survey.

Charge the Chromebooks!

Please make sure your child gets in the habit of charging their chrome books each evening. It is important that they come to school prepared and the chrome books are as important to class as bringing paper and pencils. They will need their computers to fully participate in instruction in most classes.
