FMS prepares for Public School Week
Floresville Middle School will be celebrating Texas Public Schools Week Monday through Friday, March 4-8. On Thursday, March 7, from 6-8 p.m., we will have our fifth annual Spring Summit along with our 2012-13 FMS Art Show.
The Spring Summit is a time for parents to sit down together with their child and reflect on how the school year has gone and to help both parents and students focus on strengths and areas to address for the future. Each student will have a portfolio of information to share with their parents, which will include special messages from each teacher. Allow 15 to 20 minutes for the summit and report to your child’s fourth-period PRIDE classroom.
In conjunction with the Spring Summit, the middle school will host an informative and eye-opening session from 7-8 p.m. in the FMS cafeteria. This session is designed to increase drug awareness for all members of the school community and parents.
Participants will learn current teen trends in alcohol and drug use, ways youth are hiding alcohol and drug use, and information that can help adults deal with students and drug influences in the classroom or at home. Participants will get to see numerous examples of drug paraphernalia and explore such trends as underage binge drinking, alcoholic energy drinks, “anti-energy” drinks, bath salts, synthetic marijuana, salvia, and prescription drug use.
The subject matter presented in this session is intended for an adult audience only, so child care will be provided for all parents wishing to attend. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of what youth today are involved in and how they are hiding what they are doing.
Parents wishing to attend this event may participate in the Spring Summit activities between 6-7 p.m. and then come to the cafeteria for the “parent only” presentation.
The faculty and staff of Floresville Middle School are excited about these upcoming events. We are hoping that our students and family members will be able to participate in some of these special planned events.
