  • FMS GIVING TREE

    Posted by BETHANY AOKI on 12/1/2019

    GIVING TREE: We have set up a tree by the main office front doors with wishes on it. We have a lot of FMS families that need our support during the holidays. We have put tags on the trees with wishes of our students and family members. If you want to help support our families during this time, you can take tag(s) off of the tree and sign them out. If you are unable to come into school to get a tag, you can give permission to your child to tag a tag(s) to bring it home. There is a sign out sheet in the front office for each wish. If you are giving your child permission to take a wish off of the tree, please email our counselors to let them know. nrogan@bethelsd.org and ezarling@bethelsd.org . Thank you for your support!!

  • FALCON FAMILIES

     

     

    CAFETERIA DOORS OPENING AT 7am: Starting Monday the cafeteria doors will open at 7am for all students being dropped off. Please do not sit in your car at the curb in front of the school waiting until 7:05. Students waiting in cars is causing a back-up on 108th which we worked hard to clear and keep moving. Students will have to wait in the cafeteria until 7:05 where we will have supervision in the other locations. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT IN THE CAR WITH YOUR CHILD(REN) AT THE CURB IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL.

     

    STUDENTS STAYING AFTER SCHOOL: Students who stay after school must be supervised by an adult in the building. Students have to make prior arrangements for this. Any student who is in the hallways walking around will be asked to call home to get picked up immediately. For the safety of our students they cannot just walk around for 2 hours after school. Please talk to your child about this expectation. We will also be putting this information in our announcements at school to be read to students.

     

    END OF TRIMESTER DECEMBER 5: If your child has an I grade that grade will turn to an F on December 5th. We have academic help after school several days a week, please encourage your child to stay after from 2-4 to get additional help and have time to work on missing assignments.

     

    CHECKING GRADES IN SKYWARD: With the trimester coming to an end on December 5th, help support your students with checking their grades on Skyward. With the Thanksgiving Break coming up, that is a great time for students to catch up on any missing work.

    Innovative software will save district time, money: When you think about technological innovation, names like Microsoft, Apple and Amazon probably come to mind.
