Have a great summer! See you on August 27, 2018.

From the Principal's Desk

June 2018



Dear Parents/Guardians/Students:

It’s the last month of school! Can you believe that another year has come and gone? May was packed with school events, learning, and fun! Thank you to everyone who came to our Open House and Spring Music Program. It is always fun to have you on our campus, enjoying the amazing work that students have accomplished during the school year.

Student council officer campaigns have been going strong over the last week. On June 1st, candidates for 2018-19 officer positions will be giving their speeches, and the rest of the student body will be voting.  On June 8, 2018 we will have an officer luncheon where we celebrate the current officers and discuss next school year with the newly elected officers.  Student council officers do many things on our campus and we appreciate all of the students who involve themselves in this leadership capacity.

If you are an 8th grade parent/guardian, please make sure to ask your student for the 8th grade update that was sent home a few weeks ago. This update includes important end-of-year information, including the trip, graduation, and the award’s assembly. We hope to see many parents/guardians at the graduation decoration workdays that are coming up. The first is May 31st at 6pm, in the FMS cafeteria. We are also holding them June 2 at 9am and June 9 at 9am. If you are able to come help, please bring scissors, tape, and crafting materials. We are also looking for a donation of chicken coop wire and papier-mâché materials. Lastly, we are in need of food donations for the graduation dance if you are interested in donating. Please bring food to the River Lodge at 7:30pm the night of graduation. You can also donate money towards the dance by bringing it to the FMS office.

If you are a parent/guardian of a 7th grader, we have already began fundraising for next year’s trip and graduation dance. Our first fundraiser is this Saturday, June 2, at the City-wide Yard Sale. 7th grade students will be selling baked goods in front of Horizons in Fortuna. If you would like to donate baked goods, please send them to the office June 1st, or contact Sandra at 707-601-7191. We are also planning to work at the Fortuna Fireworks Festival in July, as well as the Hops in Humboldt Merchandise Booth in August. If you can help at either of these fundraisers, please contact Sandra our “Fundraising Chair.” Lastly, if you have Facebook, please go to our school Facebook page and ask to join the “FMS Class of 2019” group. This page is for parents/guardians and will provide information to you throughout the 2018-19 school year that is important.
