Please feel free to stop by and play, even if it is only for 15-20 minutes. We have all the equipment for you and the State High School League does not allow running in the games, so everyone can participate.

WATER WEEK: Staff~~ The students will be watching videos in science every day regarding the global fresh water drinking crisis. You can view the same videos they will see by going to the FMS homepage and clicking on Water Week. This year's promotional video and a video summarizing last year's Water Week are also located there for you to view. (Shelley Kennedy receives huge thanks for spending a couple weekends putting them together for me) Also, photos of FMS finished water projects are also located there. The photos included in these announcements today just got sent to me. These photos are taken of the big project we funded in Guatemala last year, and its now finished. You can see in the photos that there was even a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new pit latrine bathrooms and building that we provided with our funding!  FMS is improving the lives of hundreds and hundreds of middle school students in Central America!
