Falcon News

Our Falcons give us plenty of reasons to brag, and we’re happy to do just that! Check in often for important announcements, and indulge our need to boast about the incredible students and staff members at our school. Need to know when the next school holiday or special event is? Hop on over to our Calendar page—it’s all there!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

4th Grade: Conferences will be the week of March 5 by appointment. We will send scheduling notices home. Please contact your child's teacher if you do not receive a notice.

5th Grade: Forms requesting conferences will only come home with those students who are in danger of failing one or more subjects. If a teacher does not feel a conference is necessary, parents may still request one by contacting the teacher.

Grades 6-8: We will have conferences during the day on Thursday, March 8 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. On Friday, March 9, teachers will be conferencing from 8:00 a.m. to noon. It will be an "open house" format for both days, and we invite parents to attend as convenient. We will send requests home for mandatory parent meetings for students who are failing one or more subjects. 

As always, teachers are available by phone and email. Call our office at (480) 664.5414 with any questions or to leave a message.

Band Concert

Join us on Thursday, March 1 at 6:00 p.m. for another fun band concert. This time we will be featuring our 7th and 8th grade bands. The bands will take you on a journey though enchanting stories of fantasy, heroism, and beauty. You do not want to miss this wonderful night of music!

Yearbooks

Time is running out! Wednesday, February 28 is the last day to pre-order a Fountain Hills Middle School yearbook to guarantee that your child gets one. Yearbooks are $39, and you can order your yearbook online today!

Birthday Club Fundraiser

We are excited to offer Fountain Hills Middle School (FHMS) families the opportunity to add to their student’s birthday celebrations! With our new marquee, we are requesting $5 to add your student’s first name and last initial with a “Happy Birthday” message (only current students are eligible). For all submissions, we must have the student’s name, birthday, and $5 (cash or check payable to FHMS) at least two weeks prior to their actual date of birth so we are able to program the system accurately. The birthday message will run from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on the student’s birthday. We will use the funds we raise through the birthday club to purchase 2018-2019 Falcon student agenda books that help organize our pupils and also include space for parent/teacher communication. Request forms are available at the front desk, and we must have a signature by the student’s parent/guardian.

Birthday Club Fundraiser
Parking

The Fountains United Methodist Church has graciously allowed Fountain Hills Middle School parents to use their parking lot for morning drop off and afternoon pick up for years. We are grateful for their generosity in extending this space for our convenience. 

From approximately February 5 through May 24, 2018, they will fence this parking lot for safety purposes as partial building demolition and additional construction are scheduled through these dates. We will not allow students to enter the fenced area, and parking will not be accessible. We urge parents to park in our school’s back lot, close to the playground, for drop off and pick up. 

Beginning on February 5 any parents transporting students should expect delays, so please be patient.

Camp Surf

The 8th grade trip to Camp Surf at Imperial Beach, California will take place on April 30 through May 2, 2018. For those students attending, the balance of the fee is due on or before March 23, 2018. If you are not sure of your balance, please call the office at (480) 664.5411 for the amount due.

Spring Running Club

Grab your running shoes! The Fountain Hills Middle School spring running club runs from January 30 through April 12. The club meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. in the courtyard. Please see our spring running club flyer for more information, and come join the fun!
