Dear FFMS Students, Parents and Guardians:


Happy Tuesday. I have asked parents to fill out a survey for me, and realized yesterday there were some issues with having to sign in to google to take it or it said they already took it. I believe I have fixed this glitch. So if possible, could you please try and take the survey for me. the link is below. Thank you.

Have a great week .

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.
