The Flower Mound High School Gay-Straight Alliance is meeting TODAY at 3:35pm in room 1405 (that’s Mr. Laferriere’s room!). Come on by if you want to discuss LBGTQ issues or to just have a safe place to talk to like-minded individuals. We hope to see you there!

FMHS helps Louisiana Community

Please bring any extra school supplies you have to the students who need everything at Livingston Parish High School in Baton Rouge. Advisory classes will be collecting through the month of September so you still have another 2 weeks to bring stuff in. Help us make a difference for our high school sisters & brothers in Louisiana, and the class that brings in the most will have cookies during advisory!

Circle of Friends

Listen up Circle of Friends members! Are you still interested in joining us to Friday night’s football game? If so, please check out the information outside the main campus’ 1200 hallway.

Also, Circle of Friends is gearing up for homecoming! All of next week, September 26th through the 30th, we will be making mum’s and garter’s for our students. Meet us in room 1475, in the main campus, next week during all lunches if you want to join us.

Summer is coming to an end! Get excited for Fall!

Fall into Fall!

Grab your coats, huddle by the fire with your friends, and make a fresh cup of hot cocoa! Fall officially starts tomorrow! This is Texas and yes, it will probably not get that cold, but before you get the summer blues, think about all the ways you can get into the fall spirit.

Autumn Treats

Autumn brings a whole new platter of dishes to the table. These are some of the typical and delicious things to try during Fall:

  • Hot Apple Cider/Apple Cider Floats
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Cinnamon Apple Turnovers
  • Pumpkin Bread
  • Sweet Potato Casserole (Marshmallows)
  • Pumpkin Spiced Lattes
  • Tomato Basil Soup
  • Pumpkin Cookies
  • Thanksgiving Turkey/Ham
  • Pumpkin Chocolate Cake
  • Baked/Mashed Potatoes
  • Pumpkin Smoothies
  • Cinnamon Rolls
  • Bread Pudding
  • Did we mention PUMPKIN?? (yum)


Fall Equinox is tomorrow. Columbus Day is the first holiday of autumn. We celebrate it with a four day weekend. The next holiday is Halloween, which falls on a Monday this year- the scariest day of the week. Start looking for costumes and stock up on candy. Veteran's Day, November 11, is the day to honor our former and fallen US soldiers. Thanksgiving break starts November 21. The actual holiday lands on Thursday, November 24. No matter how you spend the holiday, enjoy the food you are given, spend time with your family, and be appreciative.

What Weather will come our way?

Most of us can only hope for Texas to get cold this year. Unfortunately, none of us can predict the weather that far in the future. Even if the weather isn't as cold as we might hope, snuggle in a comfy sweatshirt by the fire. Even if the weather we get is not what's expected, hot or cold, everything will be just right at FM9.
