 Congratulations Class of 2016!

On Friday, June 24, we will celebrate the graduates of the Class of 2016 at our Commencement Ceremony.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

   Peer Mentorship Program coming to FMHS!                                               If we can raise the funds, this program will be introduced next Fall and offer our kids a chance to learn skills such as Leadership and problem solving and become actively involved in mentoring other students.  Keep your ears and wallets open to learn more about how you can contribute towards this invaluable program.  Look for more details in the upcoming newsletters and PTA meetings.

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 PSAT 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
VOLUNTEERED THEIR TIME .

WE NEED PARENT PARTICIPATION!

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.

Thanks to all who donated and helped us achieve our FIRST fundraising goal.

You’ve put an additional $2000 into our classrooms.

Because 25% of FMHS families have stepped up to show they value their children’s education, we will receive $2000 from an anonymous donor.

Let’s keep the momentum going.
If another 25% of families donate by the end of the year, we’ll receive an additional $3000.

So make a tax deductible donation via check or money order payable to “Frank McCourt High School PTA”, download the donation form and send it with your donation to:
