Just a reminder that students will be receiving a fourth quarter grade of Pass or Incomplete only in Language Arts and Math. Students who receive an Incomplete will be given the opportunity to turn in work in the fall to bump their grades up to a pass. Since Social Studies, Science, and P.E. have been supplemental/optional students will not be receiving a grade for those classes. However we encourage families to turn in all completed packets for all subjects- teachers have been carefully reviewing returned packets to help determine which skills/concepts will need to be retaught and reviewed in the fall when we transition back into school.

No FRMS student will be retained or held back due to this crisis.

In order to give us time to  quarantine returned packets before they are reviewed by teachers, the last day to pick up or return packets will be Monday, June 8th. We will provide packets for that last week that will not have to be turned in. They will have more fun activities and suggestions/ideas for summer learning.

If your student is still working on packets on June 8th, we will definitely still accept those packets in the fall.

FRMS Staff will celebrate our 8th graders moving on to high school with a “drive thru” promotion celebration on Thursday, June 11th from 5 PM to 7 PM. Staff will line the bus lane to cheer for your 8th grader and then at the end of the bus lane a staff member will present them with their promotion certificate and any awards. Students and their families will stay in their cars. Staff will maintain social distancing.

To help minimize the traffic backing up onto Territorial, we ask that families come through at the following times:

5:00 to 5:30  Last names beginning with A to C

5:30 to 6:00 Last names beginning with D to H

6:00 to 6:30  Last names beginning with J to R

6:30 to 7:00 Last names beginning with S to Z

In addition to the Drive Thru Celebration, we will also be posting our traditional slide show honoring 8th grade students on our website the last week of school along with videos announcing our 8th grade student award winners. In addition to Outstanding Boy and Girl of the year, we will be giving subject awards including most improved in that subject, the FRMS Citizenship award to all students with no referrals or detentions while at FRMS, and  Academic Achievement awards to students whose cumulative GPA is 3.5 or above.

Families who are unable to join us Thursday evening can pick up their certificates at the district office on Friday the 12th or Monday the 15th.

To help reduce costs this year in anticipation of budget cuts next year, we are reducing office hours and teacher availability hours for the remainder of this school year. The FRMS office will be open from 8 AM to 2:30 PM Monday through Friday. starting Tuesday, May 19th. FRMS Teachers will be available by phone or email to help students from 8 AM to 2:30 PM Mondays thru Fridays as well.
