The past two weeks, FSMS has had some very exciting events occurring on campus.  On Wednesday, August 9th we got a chance to meet the 2017-2018 6th grade Spartan class at our annual Spartan Camp celebration.  Our incoming 6th graders were given the opportunity to learn some school cheers from the Spartan Cheerleaders.  They were shown how to navigate the halls and open their lockers with the help from our volunteer NJHS student leaders.  They were also given a chance to ask their big questions and get insider information from some of the 6th grade teachers and counselors.  A big thank you for the warm welcome from the Spartan cheerleaders, NJHS , Stiles PTA, and 6th grade staff members that volunteered their time to make this event great!   

Last Thursday, August 17th, the FSMS staff returned to campus after a great summer break.  With the support of the Stiles PTA our staff was greeted with a wonderful breakfast and coffee when they arrived on campus.  The staff spent the day gearing up for the upcoming school year, participated in the first of many annual Department Olympics, and spent some time getting their classrooms ready for the students to start this coming Monday, August 28th.  Today, the entire school staff spent the morning cheering on the home team at the LISD district convocation.  The staff showed off their Spartan pride and got the chance to celebrate with their colleagues district wide.  It was a wonderful way to kick off a week of Professional Development.    

This week we are looking forward to seeing our parents and community members at the 6th grade Open House on Wednesday, August 23rd starting at 6:30pm.  Open House gives students the opportunity to walk their schedules and make themselve acquainted with the campus.  If you plan to join us, please be sure to go to the cafeteria and get your child some Spartan gear at the PTA table that will be set up.  Don’t forget, the 7th and 8th grade Open House is next week on August 31st at 6:30pm.    

It is hard to believe that next Monday, August 28th we will be welcoming the students to campus to begin the 2017-2018 school year.   We are all very excited to have their energy, excitement, and passion for learning walking our halls.  I am personally looking forward to continue working towards forging collaborative and meaningful relationships with the Stiles students, staff, parents and community members.  It has been a very exciting month for me and I could not think of a better place to call home.
