From the Desk of Principal Fears

Greetings Fugett Families,

National Gratitude Month in November encourages us to embrace the power of gratitude.

Gratitude is more than simply saying “thank you.” Gratitude’s amazing powers have the ability to shift us from focusing on the negative to appreciating what is positive in our lives. Take a moment to consider what you are grateful for!

Please read below for important information about the upcoming weeks at Fugett Middle School.

Have an awesome day!

Dr. Dionne Fears

Principal, Fugett Middle School

Hello from the Fugett PTO!

The Cougar Cause: West Chester Food Cupboard

This month, the PTO will begin its donation collection to help support the West Chester Food Cupboard. Please consider purchasing items in need and having your student place the donation in the blue bin marked “Food Cupboard," located at the cafeteria entrance. Items most needed are: diapers, feminine products, cereal, toothpaste, deodorant, canned meat and fish, and canned fruit. There is an abundance of canned vegetables right now, but those are always welcome as well. Any items that you can spare are always gratefully accepted. We will continue this much needed service throughout the year. Thank you for your generosity and support!

Questions? Concerns? Comments? Contact us at

Fugett PTO is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. All donations to the PTO are fully tax-deductible.
