April 2018


Dear Parents/Guardians/Students:

Congratulations to the Superintendent’s Award Winner for April Jasmin Lopez!

Congratulations to Leah Nelson who won an award at the County History Day and is headed to the State History Day Competition in May representing Fortuna Middle School!

Today was a fun-filled day here at Fortuna Middle School. We started the morning with a surprise visit by a two-eared hopping critter and Mrs. Johansen hiding eggs around our campus for students to find. There were over 400 eggs on our campus, some of which had “prize” notes hidden in them. Students were very excited. We also had our April Award’s Assembly today honoring student’s earning Student of the Month and Citizens of the Month for the month. This was followed by our “State Testing Kick-off Rally” where Spartans played Star Wars themed games and were reminded to do their best on the test (which will start next week). Many students also dressed up in Star Wars gear! Eligible students then ended their day in Student Appreciation Day activities.

We are on the final trimester of the year. The new trimester started March 26th and we hope to see even more students on the honor roll this trimester. We will be honoring all students who received awards during the 2nd Trimester at our Award’s Night on April 11, 2018 at 6pm in the FMS gym. The Honorable Judge Joyce Hinrichs will also be joining us that evening to present our school with the California Department of Education’s Civic Education Award of Merit. We are the only student in Humboldt County being recognized, so we are very proud of our students and staff.

Our PTO has its next meeting on April 2 at 4pm in the South Fortuna Elementary School Library. The PTO is made up of parents, guardians, teachers, principals, and staff from both Fortuna Middle and South Fortuna Elementary.  Our PTO is open to anyone and we welcome new participants! This group is integral to many school “extras” including field trips for our students. We hope to see you there.  Our next PTO Fundraiser is the annual PTO Carnival and Raffle on April 6, 2018 at SFES. Presale tickets and wristbands are still on sale in the FMS office, but may also be purchased at the event.

We are excited to invite you to our next fundraiser for the Class of 2018 which is a “Paint and Dine” Party. If you haven’t heard of painting rocks and hiding them around Humboldt, you don’t want to miss out! Tickets are being sold in the FMS office now through April 13th for only $10 per person (presale ticket price). Your tickets include a spaghetti dinner, as well as rocks and painting supplies. The event will be held on April 24th from 6-8pm in the FMS cafeteria. A limited amount of tickets will be sold at the door that evening, but prices will go up to $15 and spots will not be guaranteed. Get your tickets now for the whole family! In addition to this fundraiser, the 8th grade class is currently selling raffle tickets for a “Redding Package.” Each ticket is $5 and can be purchased in the FMS office or from an 8th grade. The package includes a night at Oxford Suites in Redding, tickets to Turtle Bay Aquarium, and other “travel” related items. One winner will be chosen in May from all tickets purchased.

If you are an 8th grade parent/guardian, our next 8th Grade Parent Committee meeting will be held on April 3rd from 6-7pm in the FMS cafeteria. This is a meeting for both FMS and TTS 8th Grade Parents to discuss the graduation dance and ceremony. Our next regular 8th grade Parent Committee meeting will be held April 9 at 6pm in the FMS cafeteria, following the “8th Grade Trip Chaperone Information Meeting” at 5:30pm. If you are interested in chaperoning the trip this year please don’t miss this one. If you are unable to help but would like to donate, we are looking for parents/guardians who would like to donate food for the 8th grade graduation dance. If you would like to donate, please contact me at jjohansen@fortunaesd.com for more information. The quality of your student’s trip and graduation is based on how much money we raise; so please do your part in helping make these experiences great for kids.
