February is African American History Month. According to History.com, "African American History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history... This annual celebration has inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celebrations, establish history clubs and host performances and lectures." Please join FMS in celebrating African American History Month.

Have an awesome day!

Parents/Guardians: Please remind your students to bring their laptop chargers to school every day. Student laptops are to be charged and ready to go each school day!
More and more students are forgetting their chargers, and the library has a limited number that students can borrow. This leads to students missing out on valuable instruction when they either have to go to the library to get loaner or if they are unable to participate in class because their laptop is not charged.
