  • 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

  • WEATHER ALERT!
     
    Due to the weather today, we will be running our 6th Grade Weather Schedule. 6th grade students will have 3rd and 4th periods twice today to eliminate the 2nd grand pass due to the weather. Students that are in Bennett Ranch Elementary for their morning classes will finish the day in Bennett Ranch Elementary. Students that have their morning classes at Falcon Middle will remain in Falcon Middle today and not pass to Bennett Ranch this afternoon. What this means is that students will be ending their day at the opposite building they are normally dismissed from for today, Friday, January 18th.
     
    Students will plan on following their normal pick up location, unless the parent calls the office to make other arrangements. 
     
    On Tuesday, January 22nd, students will only have periods 5 and 6 to make up the time from today. For Tuesday, students will have lunch in the opposite building that they normally do, but their dismissal will be from the usual place.
     
    As always, let us know if you have any questions.

    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
