COVID Reminder

Thank you for your flexibility and patience with LWSD's return-to-school guidelines for students who have any COVID-like symptoms. Please continue to notify the school if your student is not feeling well, and know that if he/she/they are at school with symptoms they will be sent home. We will provide these families with the most up-to-date policies for returning to school, as they are revised on a regular basis.

Safety Reminder

Concerned neighbors have contacted us recently to report that students are not stopping at the crosswalks and four-way stops near the school. Please remind your students to be careful and responsible when crossing streets by the school, whether walking or on wheels (bike, scooter, skateboard, etc.). We want all Falcons to make it to and from school safely!

Request: Early Release

If you need to pick up your student early from school, the front office respectfully requests at least one hour notice in order to make arrangements. Thank you in advance for your help with this!

Request for AVID Guest Speakers

Seventh grade and eighth grade AVID classes are looking for guest speakers to visit our classrooms virtually. If you would be interested in sharing your career and education journey, please contact to find out more information.

ASB Fundraiser

Students are selling popcorn and coffee from now until 10/14. Each item is $20.00 and the school keeps $10.00 of each item sold. We do not want students to go door to door or sell to strangers.

Popcorn comes in a one-gallon size bag and the coffee comes in a 12 oz bag. Both products are made in the Portland area. Every person that purchases an item will receive a free discount card. The deals on the discount card can be used throughout the year.

Checks should be written to Finn Hill Middle School

Last turn in date: Thursday, 10/14/21

Please help students to remember to CLEARLY fill out all information on the envelope and brochure. Help them make sure the money and orders match up before turning your packets into the school.

If students need an extra envelope or order form, go to the office.


Students will earn the prize for each level they reach in addition to the prizes from all previous levels.

Participation is the key to a great fundraiser! Go Falcons!

ASB-Spirit Wear

The last day to pay and turn in a spirit wear order form is Friday, October 22nd. The order form is available for download below.

PTSA Kicks Off "Reflections"

PTSA has kicked off this year's Reflections program. National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

Students participate in the appropriate division for their grade: Middle School (Grades 6-8), or Special Artist. Students who identify as having a disability and may receive services under IDEA or ADA: Section 504 may enter in the Special Artist Division or grade division most closely aligned to their functional abilities.

This year's theme is "I Will Change the World By..." Students are encouraged to submit art reflecting the theme to the front office by Friday, October 29th in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts (note: only 2D).

FHMS is providing students an opportunity to work on a visual arts piece during lunchtime on Tuesdays and Thursdays through October, ensuring all students are able to participate in this valuable program. PTSA is providing volunteers are needed to assist with setup and to help students as needed.

If you would like to include the SignUpGenius created for offering a chance to do the visual art entry during lunch, please see the already to go link.

Contact FHMS PTSA Reflections Chair, Tennile Jones, if you have any questions, concerns or if she can provide any other information.
