Week of November 22, 2021
We cannot believe it's the week of Thanksgiving! Didn't this school year just start? In the spirit of being thankful and grateful, we hope that you will consider reaching out to at least one Junior Jacket Staff Member this week that has made an impact on your child. This may be as simple as a kind email, having your child create a card/note of thanks, or checking off an item on an Amazon Wishlist. Regardless of the way you say thank you, please know what a positive impact it will make on the staff member's day. We are very lucky to be a school where every single staff member works tirelessly to make FMES a very special place to be.
Let me also say THANK YOU to our families and school community for your support and grace this school year. Your support is so very appreciated. We hope you enjoy this upcoming weekend together with your family and friends.

The BookFair is coming...
Ashley Shaw - Speech Teacher
It is a great picture book about Thanksgiving written by Dav Pilkey (author of Captain Underpants and Dog Man series) that the family will enjoy. Not only does it have a great message of friendship and love, but it is funny and kids of all ages will LOVE it! It is one of my all time favorites.
Erin Love - Lead Teacher
I love that this book is written from the perspective of a boy learning to write poetry at school. You get a glimpse into his beautiful relationship with his dog, his teacher, writing, and poetry. 5 Stars from Mrs. Love!

PTO Teacher Gift Card Cart
The PTO, in collaboration with the FMES Event Committee, are looking for gift cards for each of our staff members to do a Christmas tree “gift card” cart. If you are able and willing to donate a gift card or two, it would be greatly appreciated. Your gift card can be from any retail store, gas station, grocery store, restaurant, fast food, or any other business.
Please make sure your gift card has the amount on it and you can turn your gift cards in to the receptionist Kelly Mac no later than Monday December 6th.
Thank you so much for your continued support of our FMES Teachers & Staff.
