This week is school spirit week!  The theme for Monday is "Fall" colors day.  All students are encouraged to wear orange, yellow, or red to school on Monday.  

Tuesday will be hat day.  The $2 for Hat Day on Tuesday goes to help students in poverty in Ecuador that we sponsor through our student council outreach project One School + Education = Hope.  Students will need to know this ahead of time to bring money for a wristband to wear their hats. No wristband – no hat.

 Wednesday will be "pink out" day.  Please see information below on how to order your pink shirt for Wednesday. 


On Wednesday, September 26th we will have home football games and volleyball games.  Students have the option to purchase a game ticket and refreshment combo for $5.  Students will receive a game ticket, bottle of water, slice of pizza and bag of chips for $5.  Students will be allowed stay after school to watch our home football or volleyball games. Games begin at 5:00.  Parents may purchase the combo on the FMMS website under the “Pay Fees tab”.

Message from Counselors:

 The Counselors’ Corner  -

 For Parents of 8th Graders registered to take the PSAT-

All students registered to take the PSAT on October 10th received their Student Guide last week as we prepare to take this SAT practice test.

The registered students will pre-bubble the demographic information on their answer documents during A+ next week to reduce the test administration time on test day. On Test day testing students will be assigned to a classroom starting at 8:30 and will finish in time to eat lunch. Non-testing students will follow their regular schedule on test day. Please ask your student to see the material that was sent home. 

Who is my student’s School Counselor this year?

The FMMS Guidance Office has added a new School Counselor this year. With the new hire we have shifted responsibilities to grade levels. Here are the new assignments for the FMMS Guidance Office:

6th Grade- Mrs. Lacinda Mapp (mappl@fortmillschools.org)

7th Grade- Mrs. Bonnie Hisman (hismanb@fortmillschools.org)

8th Grade- Mrs. Terry Bauer-Brown (brown@fortmillschools.org)

Feel free to contact the School Counselors if you or your student needs assistance.
