FRONTIER EAGLE NEWS
A Note from the FMS Administrative Team
Dear FMS Families,
October certainly flew by quickly for our FMS students! They have been busy, as the second quarter is now upon us. Our classrooms are full of learning and engagement, and many of our students are actively participating in our clubs, intramurals, and sports. We could not be more proud of our eagles, as they are immersing themselves in our FMS community both during and after the academic day.
We also want to take a moment to thank all of our families. It was a wonderful experience to have so many parents/guardians participate in parent/teachers conferences. As a staff, we know how important the partnership between home and school can be when it comes to ensuring student success. We feel grateful for your support and involvement, as we work together on behalf of our FMS eagles!
Although November is a relatively short month in regard to student attendance days, there is much on the horizon. We are especially looking forward to our first Veterans Day assembly on November 11 and to the start of both our eighth grade girls' and boys' basketball seasons. We hope to see many of you at our games, as we support not only our basketball players, but also our cheer and dance teams, as well! It's going to be a great month at FMS!
Dr. Laura Rowe-Holler, Principal
Mrs. Amber Houdei, Assistant Principal (Sixth Grade)
Mr. Kevin Kuehl, Assistant Principal (Seventh Grade)

On Thursday, November 10, dine at The Post in Lake St. Louis between 11:00 AM-Midnight. If you mention FMS Posting for a Purpose, a portion of your bill's proceeds will go to benefit the FMS PTSA. This will apply to both dine-in and to-go orders. We thank you in advance for your support!
YOU SHOP, AND THE SCHOOL GETS PAID!
Did you know that when you shop on Amazon, it's easy for Frontier to get a small percentage from your purchase? All you have to do is shop through AmazonSmile instead of Amazon.
Once you've set up your account, your shopping experience will be identical. The only difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate .5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Frontier Middle School PTSA would be grateful to be the charity you choose. Go to smile.amazon.com to get started. Once you've set this up, it's easy to set up your Amazon app
to link to AmazonSmile as well.
FMS Needs Your Help!

Subbing gives you the opportunity to get involved at FMS at your convenience! And, as an added bonus, you can see what your child is up to each day! We're not looking for a long-term or daily commitment, but rather help as you are available. Learn more and apply today.
Apply now for our various full-time and substitute custodial opportunities in FMS. We need your help keeping our building clean and ready for learning! Team members are provided with uniforms (5 sets) and a $75 annual shoe reimbursement. Learn more and take advantage of our newly increased custodian pay. Learn more and apply today.
