Be an involved parent.

The PTA is our way as parents to participate in the FMHS community. Not only is it a resource to get information, it is a way we can have a positive impact in the classroom. Through funds raised and volunteer efforts we’ve been able to:

  • help cover bus costs for college tours
  • organize and provide food for community building events like our Fall Pot Luck
  • negotiate a high quality, low cost ACT  prep course through ibid Prep for FMHS students
  • support classroom projects like Ms. Mathes Soap Making Project and Ms. Gates Podcasting Project
  • provide funds for art supplies and graphing calculators
  • cover the costs for Naviance, our college and career readiness software
  • assist with other senior activities (prom, senior trip, yearbook and graduation venue)
  • assist with the cost of Camp Bernie
  • provide college resource books
  • and much more…

Please join the parents who have already


I’m looking at you, Freshman Parents!!

We have a lot of help from upper class parents but we need new parents to start getting involved. Learn the ropes from those who’ve done it before. It’s not hard if we all pitch in.
