    From the Principal's Desk

    Dear FMS Students, Parents, and Guardians,

    The mid-trimester progress reports have gone home with your students. Please take this opportunity to speak with your student about his/her grades and goals for the trimester. If you child didn't bring this home, you can always check his/her grades on Aeries. There is plenty of time left in the trimester for students to reach their goals. During the month of February there will be two Wednesday afternoons where teachers will be available to speak with parents and their students who are struggling. If you are interested in meeting, please contact your student’s teacher.

    During the last week of January, our school participated in Kindness Week. Students had dress-up days, read a school-wide book, and led 2 student-chosen community service projects. In addition, students enjoyed watching a Character Education Assembly led by BMX bikers doing stunts. We hope that students will continue to use the skills discussed during this week each and every day.

    Eligible students continue to have the opportunity to go to the FMS store on a weekly basis. We hope that this will encourage more students to make good choices, earn “Middle Money,” and participate. Eligibility for the next Incentive Day is also based on behavior, but behavior over a larger period of time (January 6-February 14). Our next Incentive Day will be held February 14 and is a school dance with DJ Toro and a photo booth.

    Our 8th graders are continuing to fundraise for their trip. Students are currently finishing their chocolate bar fundraiser and preparing for their biggest fundraiser of the year: The FMS 8th grade Quarter Craze and Dinner (please save the date of March 20). Our next 8th grade Parent-Student Committee will be held February 25 at 6pm in the FMS Cafeteria. We will also hold a joint committee meeting for FMS and TTS parents (no students please) on March 9th at 6pm in the Toddy Thomas Library to discuss the graduation dance and ceremony. We hope that all 8th grade parents and guardians will participate.                                                               

    Some dates you may want to put on your calendar:

    Feb. 4- SSC Meeting 3:15pm

    Feb. 5- Geography Bee; January Award’s Assembly

    Thank you for all that you do!

    Sincerely,

    Julie Johansen
