Dear FMS families, 

We are off to a great start. It is nice to once again have the building filled with students. Thank you for sending us your children.  Their smiles, energy and joy bring life to the building. This past week was spent getting into both classroom and building routines. While everything appears to be starting off smoothly, we know that things may get missed. We want to hear from you if something is not working quite right.  For example, has your child said there is not enough time for lunch? Is there a problem with the walk or bus ride to school? Is their confusion around classroom expectations? We want to know.

As a reminder, while we understand it is a small window, drop off is between 8:15-8:25.  The parking lot is small and it is difficult to maintain an easy flow in the parking lot when it gets backed up with cars.  Additionally, students who walk to school should be arriving between these time as well. We have very limited ability to supervise walkers on the playground before school hours.  

Here are some upcoming date reminders:  

If your child is a 5th Grader and plans to participate in band, the instrument rental night is 9/12 from 6-8.

Our open house is 9/18 from 5:30-6:30.

Picture day is 10/2.
