The end of the year is coming quickly.  Here are some things to be thinking about as the year comes to a close. Please encourage your student clean out their lockers.  Students will do the initial cleaning of their locker this week and clean it out completely the second to last day of school.  Students should also check in with the library to see if they have any missing books or fines.  Lastly, the Lost and Found is very full.  If your child is missing anything, I would look there first.

Spirit Week starts on Monday May 9th.  There is class competition to encourage all student to participate.  The Leadership class wants this to be the best week ever.  They hope all the students dress participate everyday.

Monday is Lazy Day! Remember dressing lazy does not mean being lazy in class 🙂

Tuesday is Twin Day! If you have not planned ahead, my guess is that there will be a few students wearing their PE shirts if you want to twin with them.

Wednesday is American Day! Bring on the Red, White, and Blue.

Thursday is Tie Dye Day! If you do not have any tie dye, I would check Goodwill for a shirt for a good price.

Friday is Disney Day! Mickey Mouse’s Clubhouse might be coming to FRMS.
