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!

Power Hour
This year we are introducing Power Hour, where we will celebrate first quarter honor roll, principal's list, extracurricular sports and clubs, and many more! On October 27, 2017, we invite parents to attend Power Hour at 2:25 p.m. in the gym. Please be sure to use the back parking lot (no parking in the bus loading zone). If your student has achieved honor roll or principal's list status, you will receive a special invitation to the event, and your child will receive a certificate from the classroom teacher. We will recognize all students by grade level. Expect lots of celebrating, grade level chants, music, an appearance by our mascot, and a number of community members in attendance. Regardless of whether your student makes honor roll or principal's list, we invite all parents to participate in this new tradition at Fountain Hills Middle School. Don't forget to wear your FHMS gear!

Halloween Dance

Fountain Hills Middle School (FHMS) Falcon Leaders are hosting a Halloween dance for grades 6-8 on Friday, October 27 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 pm in the FHMS courtyard.

Tickets are $10 and are available for purchase from Mrs. Beck at the front office before school, after school, or during lunch. Students must purchase tickets in advance. There will be no ticket sales at the door! The admission price includes food and drink, so students should not bring money the evening of the dance. 

Students may wear their costumes as long as they are dress-code appropriate.

Nerf Wars

Fountain Hills Parks and Recreation is offering several sessions in which competing teams use their brains, bodies, and toy blasters to complete fun missions. All missions are safe and family-friendly, allowing children ages six and up, and all skill levels, to play. Parents wanting to play must register themselves as well as their children. There will be equipment to loan, such as blasters, eye protection, darts, and dart pouches, but you may also bring your own. Please see the nerf wars flyer for more information including a full list of dates.

Arizona Proof of Resdiency

We sent home a small packet of documents with information regarding our student handbook and the Arizona proof of residency requirements. 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. Parents must complete the residency form for each child and return it with a copy of one of the documents listed on the form.

Extra copies of these documents are available at the front office. Thank you.

Falcon Leaders

Falcon Leadership Club mentoring/tutoring continues this year at Fountain Hills Middle School. The Fountain Hills High School Falcon Leadership Club members mentor and tutor 4th and 5th grade students every Wednesday after school at the middle school. See Mrs. Goodell for more information.

Encouraging Responsibility

In an effort to reduce interruptions of instructional time, as well as promote responsibility and accountability with our students, FHMS only allows lunches and/or water bottles, glasses, and medically required items to be dropped off at school for students.

Parents may not drop off forgotten athletic equipment, homework, backpacks, projects, or musical instruments the front office for students. We will not interrupt classes to notify students. You may drop off middle school sports equipment to a waiting student at 3:10 p.m.

Please make any changes of after school pick-up plans with your child before they arrive at school. Messages for students are for emergencies only and will be given at the end of the school day.

Beginning of the day and end of day procedures are important components of your student's learning process. For this reason, we ask that FHMS students arrive by 8:25 a.m. and remain at school until 3:10 p.m. Students who are not in their first hour class by 8:30 a.m. will be marked tardy, and three (3) tardies in one week will result in a 30-minute, after school detention. Also, if a student must be signed out early, this should be done prior to the last 15 minutes of the school day.

Thank you for promoting responsibility with the students at Fountain Hills Middle School.
