Stuff the Pantry ALL Next Week

Show your support for LISD families in need through your canned food donations. The Stuff the Pantry drive, a joint effort between CCA, Metro Relief, and LISD, will help provide food for LISD families throughout the year and particularly this holiday season. FM9 did an amazing job last year collecting food and your help will be greatly appreciated again this year.

Bring canned food items to 2nd Period all next week (Oct. 31-Nov. 4)

2nd Period with the most points wins a cookie party

Donate CANNED items ONLY (One can = One point)

Here are some canned food suggestions:

  • Green Beans

  • Peas

  • Sweet Potatoes/Yams

  • Corn

  • Carrots

  • Cranberry Sauce

  • Canned Pumpkin

  • Canned Pie Filling

  • Canned Gravy

  • Evaporated Milk

  • Soups

  • Canned Fruit

How can FM9 be awesome and make a difference??
  • Go to the grocery stores, Sam'sClub, or Costco this weekend and stock up
  • If each FM9 student brings at least 10 CANS of food
  • FM9 would collect more than 8,000 cans of food to really stuff the pantry and be a BIG help!

Stand Proud & Pull UP for Jaguar Nation

On Wednesday, November, 2, FM9/FMHS will be participating in the 3rd annual Pull-Up-a-Thon between FMHS and LHS. The series is tied 1-1. We will have 2 pull-up bars available during all lunches. The winner will be recognized during the LHS/FMHS football game on November 4. It’s time to defend last year's win! We need everyone to pull-up for Jaguar Nation! Let’s GO JAGS!!

Kids Aren't Trick or Treating as Much as Last Year! Is it Because it’s on a Monday?

Halloween and Monday's don't make a sweet combination. I mean, what's the point of going out with friends until late hours and taking free candy from random strangers when you know you have that math assignment that's due the next morning. So, just how many students are going to celebrate Halloween on Monday?

FM9 students share their Halloween plans:

  • Brooke Napier - “I will go trick or treating on Monday, and I will have a party on the weekend.”
  • Thomas Kall - “I will not be trick or treating because the Oklahoma police arrested clowns that said they were going to purge on Halloween… But if I'm being serious I'm probably going to have a party over the weekend.”
  • Victoria Reeh - “I will be going trick or treating.”
  • Lauren Erickson - “ I'm going to a party on the weekend and trick or treating Monday.”
  • Farin Oldnettle - “I'm going to a party on the weekend.”
  • Corbett Helgesen - “I am going to scare little children.”
  • Annabelle Scott - “I won't be trick or treating.”
  • Samantha VanOverschelde - “I might go trick or treating but most likely will watch ‘scary’ movies with my friends.”
  • Sophie Slaughter - “I haven't thought about it yet.”
  • Gabriel Cho - “I'm gonna sleep.”

Halloween on a Monday really stinks and some students have even started a petition to make a holiday for November 1st. Of course, this will never happen, but more than 600 students have signed this petition. Click the button below and share your Halloween plans/opinions.
