Dear FGMS Parents, In lieu of the FGMS evening awards ceremony originally scheduled for May 9th, the Middle School Recognition and Awards Assembly will be held from 9:00AM-10:00AM on May 16th in the High School Gym. We feel it is important for our entire student body to have the opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of their peers. By celebrating this event during regular school hours, all of our award winners will be able to attend. We would like to encourage our middle school parents to attend. You will be notified through email, if your student will be recognized with an award during our assembly on May 16th. We realize it may be difficult for our 8th grade parents to attend both our promotion ceremony and the awards assembly. Therefore, we will recognize our 8th grade student award winners during the 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony on May 15th at 9:00 AM in the Upper Elementary Gym. Refreshments will be provided after the ceremony, and our students will depart for their annual field trip at approximately 10:00 AM. These kids will also be recognized in front of their middle school peers during the Recognition and Awards Assembly on the last day of school. If you have any questions concerning our end of the year activities, please feel free to contact the middle school office at 417.759.2233. Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to celebrating a fantastic school year. Sincerely Mr. Green
