"Fountain Hills Middle School empowers students to learn, to care, and to succeed."
Principal's Message                                  September 15, 2017
Parents have received notice that students' mid-term progress report grades are accessible through PowerSchool. Should you have any questions about your student's grades, first speak with your child and if you need more information, contact the classroom teacher by phone or e-mail. Given the number of teachers a student sees during the day, sometimes children forget about what happened in first period by the end of the day. There are so many ways to support your child's success at FHMS, beginning with the Communicator. This document should come home as a hard copy and it includes the week's lessons/homework for their academic core classes. Regardless of a middle school student's age, it's always a good idea to go through their backpacks to help them with organization. Children often struggle with this skill, and your help certainly makes a difference.

Speaking of checking backpacks, this week every student was given a small packet of documents with information regarding our Student Handbook, the Arizona proof of residency requirements, as well as other important information. Please review these documents and return the yellow cover page (signed by student and parent), together with the proof of residency documentation to your child's homeroom teacher as soon as possible.

Finally, please make plans to attend our Parent Teacher Conferences, October 2-6. Please check next week's Falcon Focus newsletter for conference details. We look forward to meeting with you!
