Dear FMS Families,

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! We look forward to welcoming back students tomorrow. Just a few updates for December.

  • Our new coding club kicks off tomorrow. All students are welcome to attend (details below).
  • One other update for the school is that we will begin a new alternative classroom, ARC, this month (Alternative Resource Classroom). There are two main goals for this classroom, one is that students that may struggle in the traditional classroom setting will have the opportunity to work in the ARC room as needed to achieve academic and behavioral success. Secondly, it will reduce behaviors that distract from learning for students and staff. More updates to come!
  • Coffee with the Principal: Newsletters are nice, but if you would rather do a coffee talk, we will start a time each month to visit with the principal in a more informal way. Our first coffee talk will be December 3rd from 7:45-8:30 am. The topic will focus on navigating social media as a middle school parent/caregiver, but I will be happy to answer other questions you may have as well. Coffee will be provided and we will plan to be in the library.
  • Do you have a staff member that you would like to recognize for going above and beyond? Take a moment to fill out the link below. Thanks so much!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, concerns or celebrations! Thank you for all you do!
