The Next Level: FMS prepares incoming fifth grade students for move to middle school


Assistant Principal Matt Engelhardt high fiving fourth grade students visiting FMS.

Transitioning from one school to another is a big milestone in the lives of our students and families. While we celebrate the achievements and growth of scholars making the leap to a new school level, the exciting prospect of starting a new chapter in their educational journey may feel daunting to them. In the matter of a summer they go from an environment where they blossomed into the oldest group of students to an unfamiliar setting where they have been reset to the youngest class.
