open_house_Tonight is the FRMS Open House! Open House will start with a quick message in the gym for all parents, then the parents will have an opportunity to go through your student’s schedule.  Students are welcomed and encouraged to come tonight.  If your student does not come, we will provide copies of your student’s schedule.  We hope to see you at the middle school at 6:30 tonight.

homework-mdStarting today, we are updating the Daily Homework website.  The link is just to the right under Quick Links menu.  This is a great way to find out what your student did during the day, plus what assignments are due.  We will work to update it everyday.  Also here is an article from the Oregonian with good information that talks about transitioning to middle school, Nervous about starting middle school? What parents and students should know (video)
