FMS 8th Grade Newsletter: For the Week of May 11 - 15
8th graders and Parents
We need your input. Each year the School Counseling Department has the 8th graders and their parents complete a questionnaire. We know our school year was cut short, but we would still like to receive feedback on the things we are doing well and things you feel we could improve upon. We look forward to hearing from you. Please click on the appropriate link for students and parents. This is also located in the school counseling portion of the Explo Smore. You will only need to complete this one time. We ask that you respond by May 8th

For this week, I want you to go outside and complete an activity. That activity can be anything, ranging from yard work, working with farm animals, playing a game outside, or just exploring. If you can, spend the entire day outside. When the day is over, reflect on what you did, and how it made you feel. Ask yourself questions like “Did I enjoy that activity?” “Do I feel accomplished?” “Do you feel better having been outside?” Anything along those lines. When you reflect, do so with someone in your household.
