Band Concert

Please join us on Thursday, September 28 at 6:00 p.m. as we celebrate music at Fountain Hills Middle School (FHMS). The concert will feature students from the 5th grade general music class as well as the 8th grade band. Both groups will be performing a few selections they have been working on since school started. Come enjoy a brief look at what is happening in the Music Department here at FHMS!

Hurricane Harvey Flood Relief Fundraiser

Fountain Hills Middle School is collecting funds to send to Lemm Elementary School in Spring, Texas, which was relocated due to severe flooding. Our goal is to raise $2,000. There will be a collection box in the front office of the middle school. Please see our Hurricane Harvey fundraiser flyer for more information, or contact Mrs. Erickson with any questions.

Homework Lab is Back

PTO-sponsored homework lab meets every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday after school for one hour. Students in grades six through eight will meet in Ms. Price's room (307), and students in grades four and five will meet in the library with Ms. Hare. 

Students must turn in a signed permission slip to either Ms. Price or Ms. Hare in order to attend. Permission slips are available at the front office, or you can download one below. Students attending homework lab may take the activity bus home at 4:10 p.m.

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.

After School Activity Bus

Are you wanting to stay after school for an activity, but are worried because that means you will miss your bus ride home? No worries! We’ve got you covered! FHUSD now offers an activity bus for students who stay late for after school activities on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday each week. Check out the activity bus schedule for drop off times and locations. This is another way that FHUSD is working to make your school experience a rich one, so come take advantage of this new bus route. (Please note that the drop locations and times are subject to change based on ridership.)
