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!

Important Reminders

When students stay after school, they must be under a teacher's supervision at all times. If they are planning on attending a sporting event, they must go home and return at the start of the event, unless a teacher supervises the student.

Because supervision does not begin until 8:10 a.m., students are not to be on campus before then. They must immediately leave campus once the dismissal bell rings in the afternoon at 3:10 p.m. On early release Wednesdays, the dismissal bell rings at 2:30 p.m.

National Junior Honors Society

The National Junior Honor Society is a national organization established to recognize outstanding middle-level students. It is more than an honor roll; it serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the five pillars (areas) of the NJHS: scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.

Students become a member of the National Junior Honor Society through a selection process by Fountain Hills Middle School faculty and council. Students who meet the cumulative GPA requirement are then considered for membership on the basis of service, leadership, citizenship, and character.

This year Mr. David Perkins, 8th grade social studies teacher, will lead our current NJHS students and challenge them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. We encourage all students to explore the current and future benefits of a membership with the NJHS. We believe it is within reach for all students who put forth the effort and choose to excel!

Homework Lab

Join us for homework lab! Check it out on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday after school until 4:10 p.m. Late buses are available for students on each of these days. See you there!

Book Fair

The PTO book fair is coming up! It will kick off on September 23 and run through October 3. Information is going home soon, so be on the lookout!

AzMERIT Scores

We recently sent home the spring AzMERIT individual score reports and the AZ Family Report Guide with your student. Please go over both documents with your student. We use these reports to guide our teaching in an attempt to help students fill in gaps in learning. As a family, you can use the information to support your child at home. 

It's been a great start to the year and we look forward to working as a team to help all students achieve to the best of his/her ability!
