  • Firebirds Honor Fallen Father, All Veterans During Assembly

    “This year one of our Firebirds reached out and shared with me that her father was killed in Afghanistan in 2011,” said Karen Hobson, a nearly 17-year U.S. Army veteran and FMS administrative assistant, who planned the school's Veterans Day assembly. Hobson presented a folded American flag to a group of students in the middle of the school’s gymnasium. The students performed a traditional flag folding ceremony. “The American flag drapes the casket with the remains of a fallen hero, with the field of blue placed over the left shoulder,” said Hobson. “The flag is folded and given to the next of kin. Would you please rise to honor those who never made it home with a moment of silence and the playing of taps,” said Hobson.

FMS Updates

  • December 21, 2018
     
    Greetings Falcon Middle School Families,
     
    A smoke alarm was activated early this morning at approximately 7:58 a.m. FMS administrators immediately evacuated the school. All students moved quickly and safely to the softball field while our partners at the Falcon Fire Department dispatched a crew to FMS.
     
    FMS administrators discovered the source of the smoke was burning food in a microwave. FFD searched the affected area and gave the all clear to return to normal activities. Students returned to the building at 8:12 a.m., approximately 15 minutes after the initial alarm to continue their day at FMS.
     
    D49 thanks our partners at the Falcon Fire Department and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert for anything unusual. D49 will continue to be proactive and partner with first responders to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner.  
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Brian Smith
    Principal, FMS

  • Greetings Falcon Middle School Families,
     
    A smell of smoke was noticed today Dec. 7 at Falcon Middle School at approximately 2:45 p.m. FMS administrators immediately evacuated the school. All students moved quickly and safely to the softball field while our partners at the Falcon Fire Department began their initial investigation.
     
    The evacuation disrupted the normal release time at FMS, but students were allowed to return to the building to gather their belongings when it was determined the building was safe. 
     
    Students began meeting their parents, or boarding busses close to 3:30 p.m., which created a resulting delay getting busses to elementary schools in the Falcon Zone. The source of the smell of smoke was still under investigation when students were released.
     
    All after school activities at FMS were cancelled for Friday. **NOTE** If students did not get their belongings before leaving Friday afternoon, they may return to FMS before 9pm Friday night to collect their things. 
     
    As always, we thank you for your trust and understanding.  
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Brian Smith
    Principal, FMS
