Tawasentha 6E

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to FMS for the 2018-2019 school year.  We are very happy that you will be a member of the Slingerland/Watson/Maes team.  We anticipate a school year filled with learning, new friendships and fun.

Good organizational skills are a major factor in student success at the middle school level.  To help you be well prepared, we have attached a list of school supplies you will need. We’ll spend some time during the first few days of school to label and organize supplies.

All students are expected to come to school in September prepared to discuss and write about a book they have read over the summer.  Also, your summer reading can count toward your book log for the coming year, so keep a list of all the books you read, if you wish.Have a great rest of the summer.  We’re excited you’re on the team! We can’t wait to see you in September!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Watson; Ms. Slingerland, Mr. Maes
