Principal's Message

  • FALCON FAMILIES

     

     

    Thank you so much for all of you that attended our Student-Led Conferences this past week! If you did not get the opportunity to complete the survey please take a few minutes and do so. I have included the survey below. We will be looking at the results as a team to decide next steps so we ensure we are meeting the needs of our families and addressing concerns. Thank you again for being a partner with us in your child's learning.

     

    FMS Fall Family Survey

    Addressing Parent Concerns Posted on Facebook


    FMS Families, we want to address concerns that we have seen on Facebook so everyone has the correct details. If you have questions or concerns, I really encourage you to drop by the school, call, or email administration so we can address concerns and answer questions. We are here to support all of our students and families. 


    LOCKED BATHROOMS: We only lock bathrooms when they have been vandalized and the bathroom needs to be repaired or cleaned. The bathroom is unlocked when it is ready for student use.


    RUNNING OUT OF FOOD AT LUNCH: We have never ran out of food at lunch. We prepare enough meals for 450 students to eat lunch (based on number of students buying lunch). We typically have between 420-430 students buy lunch leaving enough food left over for a 2nd lunch of for students to eat who don't have a lunch. We are required to always have 2 options available for students, we have more options than that for students to choose from. Students will say the cafeteria ran out of food if their option is no longer available even though there are other things to eat, it just may not be what they want. For example, all of the chicken
    nuggets ran out for that lunch but there is still the choice of a hamburger, pizza or sandwich.

    NOT LETTING STUDENTS USE THE BATHROOM FIRST 10 MINUTES/LAST 10 MINUTES OF
    CLASS: We have an expectation that students are in classrooms the first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes of class because of the information that is covered during those time frames. During the first 10 minutes teachers have an entry task for students to work on then they go over the Learning Target and Success Criteria (setting up the learning for the day). The last 10 minutes of the class period teachers are wrapping up the learning for the day often giving a small assessment to determine how successful the lesson was. IF THERE IS A BATHROOM EMERGENCY WHERE THE STUDENT REALLY HAS TO GO, THE STUDENT CAN CHECK INTO CLASS AND GO TO THE BATHROOM IF IT IS AT THE BEGINNING OR END OF CLASS.

     

    Winter Season 1 Sports: Wrestling and Girls Basketball


    Girls Basketball and Wrestling (Boys and Girls) tryouts will begin Monday November 4th right after school. Practice will be from 2:10-4:10 daily. Please check in with Mr. Thomas outside the weight room for your clearance. All forms needs to be completed and a current physical on file to participate. Please wear proper clothing for your sport-athletic clothing and shoes. Activity buses are available to take students home after practice. Wrestling is a non-cut sport, basketball will have cuts later in the week. During the first two weeks of each sport season there is an activity bus Monday-Friday, after the first two weeks the activity buses run Monday-
    Thursday.
