It's A Great Day to Be a Cardinal!

January 27- 31

Dear FFMS Students, Parents and Guardians:

FFMS is proudly participating in this proactive, positive bullying prevention initiative. Maybe your family wants to participate in a kindness challenge? Maybe you want to provide a community service? There are many ideas, you are only limited by your imagination.

At school, teachers have been provided with various lesson ideas, many videos to spark discussion, book selections focusing on kindnesss, and we will do a school wide kindness challenge that will allow students to share kindness with teachers and staff by writing notes.

Remember, no act of kindness is too small, and every act of kindness sends endless ripples out into the world. One of the easiest acts of kindness is to use good manners with others--and it doesn't cost a thing. Please join us for this challenge, and send your own ripples of kindness out into the world.

I hope to see you Tuesday for the FFMS Family Escape Room Challenge!!

Have a great week!

Mrs. Hiler

Cardinal Escape Room Challenge

Please mark your calendars to attend the middle school escape room family challenge on January 28th from 5-7.

What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. They are increasingly popular as team-building exercises as well as a fun leisure activity.

10 Things Parents of Middle Schoolers Should Know

Thriving Learning Communities

Character Trait for January- Honesty

Hopefully you had an opportunity to talk with your children about their survey results and to learning more about their strengths. Below you will find a link where you can take a free survey. It isn't as extensive as what the students took but it is still worth the time to take and to learn about your own strengths.

Charge the Chromebooks!

Please make sure your child gets in the habit of charging their chrome books each evening. It is important that they come to school prepared and the chrome books are as important to class as bringing paper and pencils. They will need their computers to fully participate in instruction in most classes.
