FMES has accomplished so much this year! The link below contains the official School Improvement Council Report to Parents. We encourage you to review it so you can help celebrate our success.

A Quick Note from your Counselors...

An Important Note from Your Counselors:

All students grades K-5 at FMES will receive a lesson from Mrs. Hart and Ms. Gantt on Erin’s Law during the month of May. South Carolina requires that all public schools provide a prevention-oriented lesson which teaches students to recognize inappropriate touches, unsafe secrets and to tell a trusted adult. Mrs. Hart and Ms. Gantt teach this subject in an age appropriate manner and will send a worksheet home with the student on the day the lesson is taught, for further discussion at home.

Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn, who is the founder and President of Erin’s Law. More information about Erin’s Law can be found here:

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. Hart (Grades K, 2, 4) (803) 547-8075 or Ms. Gantt (Grades 1, 3, 5) (803) 802-8402

Cafeteria Visits

We are preparing for our Spring Chorus Concert and the stage will have risers set up Monday-Thursday of this week. When the stage is not available, there is VERY LIMITED seating in the cafeteria. We are asking that parents not come to have lunch with their child unless they are celebrating a birthday. That way our teachers and students can sit comfortably. Thank you for your understanding!

The Diabetes Walk Was a HUGE Success! Thank you to Nurse Caldwell for organizing such a wonderful event to help raise awareness and honor those living with Type 1 Diabetes! Enjoy a few pictures below.
