Please see below for some important dates and information for the 2021-2022 school year.  FCMS is very much looking forward to a more *normal* school year this year!

Virtual Parent Orientation - This will be sent out electronically to parents the week of July 19. Feel free to share with your student, but know we will go over most of this information with students during the first days of school.

Orientation will cover:

  • General FCMS Information & Introductions 
  • Student schedule
  • Student standards of behavior/code of conduct
    • Dress code, cell phone policy, student lanyards
    • Student Playbooks
  • First days of school information
  • Before/After School - Car Rider/Bus Rider

Virtual Building Tour - This will be sent out at the same time as the Parent Orientation to both parents and students. This is specifically for students new to FCMS, as an opportunity for them to see the building and get a “lay of the land” before coming in to walk their schedule.

Schedule Pick Up - Students may pick up their schedule, walk the building and try their lockers. Schedules will be available via PowerSchool on the following dates as well.

  • 7th Grade - Wednesday, July 28, 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
  • 8th Grade - Thursday, July 29, 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

School Supply List - Because student schedules vary greatly, it’s impossible to create an accurate list of all things students will need. What you see below are the general items all students will need. Individual teachers will inform students of additional items necessary the first week of school and will allow students ample time to purchase. Please visit our website for a list. 

First Day of School - The first student day is Wednesday, August 4. This will be a normal school day (8:00-3:00).

Meet the Teacher Night - Whether or not this event occurs in person has not yet been determined. This event typically occurs the second week of the school year.
