Our goal is to support FBMS as an active and collaborative organization. We appreciate your ideas and involvement. Please contact any board member or committee member listed for further information on how to get plugged in and volunteer. FBMS PTO needs your help to complete our myriad of initiatives in support of the school.
Parents and Community Members:
HISD has begun the process of selecting the next FBMS principal. There will be a meeting this Tuesday, June 19th at 5:30pm to gather input from parents and community members. Please plan to attend this very important meeting to make your views known about the principal we want for our school. Mr. Castagnoli did wonderful things to move our school forward and left a tremendous legacy. We have one of the most involved middle school parent bases around, and we want to make sure that the district knows that we want all of the good things going on here to continue! The meeting will be held in the FBMS Community Center.
STAAR Scores are now available online. The tests results will be mailed. But if you are wanting to review the scores now, you can access them online. Click here to further review HISD promotion standards. You can also click here for step by step instructions on how to access STAAR scores online.
