Snapshots of the Week

Check out a few of the new things that we have going in our building for this year! We also will be in the process of replacing our front reception desk once materials arrive.

We will miss Mr. Finch!

Our beloved Mr. Finch, longtime volunteer, room parent, receptionist, bookkeeper, and jack of all trades, will be transitioning to a new role at the district office supporting our Assistant Superintendent. We are very excited for him in his new role and know that he will be amazing at the work that he does, but we will definitely miss having him at FMES everyday. Fortunately, he's not too far away and we know we'll be seeing him again!

Spirit Week is next week!
