Let's Keep the Momentum Going

Thank you for another great week! We are in full swing to what promises to be the best year ever. I am challenging our staff and students to keep the positive momentum going strong as we continue working and learning together. We can either shift into comfort or move forward to greatness. I know that greatness is the only option for FMS! Thank you so much for all you do to support your child's education! Have a great week and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, concerns or celebrations.

Dressing for Success

A reminder from the handbook on dress code:

1. Clothing must be worn appropriately. 2. Pants must be worn at the hips or above; boxers/underwear/under garments cannot be exposed. This means no sagging. Midriffs cannot be exposed. 3. Tops/shirts must completely cover the torso and cleavage at all times. All shirts must have at least one inch straps that go over the shoulder. If a shirt has not met this requirement an over shirt or sweater must be worn over. 4. Skirts and shorts must be worn at an appropriate length. (Must reach fingertips with arms relaxed by your sides.) 5. Articles of clothing that cause excessive maintenance problems (such as cleats on boots, shoes that scratch floors, and trousers with metal rivets that scratch furniture, and chains) are unacceptable. 6. Footwear is required. 7. Clothing or accessories may not advertise alcohol, tobacco, or drug products or have inappropriate or suggestive language. 8. Hats, bandanas, skull caps or any other type of headwear (male or female) are not to be worn in the school building during regular school hours.

Intramural Soccer Coming Soon!

Attention Families and Students, we will have soccer intramurals starting soon. Soccer intramurals are open to any boy or girl in grades 6, 7, and 8th that are interested in soccer. Students will learn the basics of soccer and eventually scrimmage against each other. Intramural soccer will run from September 15th through October 9th for two hours each day after school 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM. The only exceptions are September 28th and 29th, when intramural soccer will only run 1 hour from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM

If interested in playing intramural soccer, please get a permission slip from the main office.
