Attention All FBMS Parents! This year, our goal is to get 100% of our students to return a Free & Reduced Meal Application. All families are encouraged to complete the application because the school gets funding for each one returned regardless of whether your child chooses to eat school lunch or bring one from home. A paper copy of the application was included in first day packets distributed by your child's homeroom teacher. We ask that you complete and return it to the school ASAP. For your convenience, you may apply online via this link.Read More
