Swing by Shipley's Donuts and Help out 6th graders!!

This Saturday (February 17th), Students and staff from the 6th grade class are going to be holding signs outside of Shipley's Donuts on Ella Blvd from 9-12pm.  All profits made at Shipley's will be donated to the 6th grade end of the year trip. We are hoping to raise a lot of money! We need about ten students there to help out. 

Please sign up for an hour long shift to help hold signs along Ella Blvd to encourage people to buy doughnuts and SUPPORT FBMS.  You can either create your own sign, or hold/ wave signs pre-made by 6th graders earlier in the week. 

We can only do this if STUDENTS sign up!!!  If you have an hour to volunteer for this event, please sign-up here.

Please email Mr. Mehta with any questions!

Town Hall Meeting hosted by HISD Trustee Rhonda-Skillern Jones

Last month, Superintendent Carranza proposed three significant changes within HISD:  (1) budget changes, including budget cuts of $200 million and a change in the way schools are funded from a PUA to a FTE model, (2) changes to the magnet program, and (3) either a closure and restart or a partnership program for particular chronically under-performing schools.  On Thursday, February 15, HISD Trustee and Board President Rhonda Skillern-Jones will host a community town hall meeting from 5-6:15pm at FBMS in the auditorium to further discuss these proposals.  We encourage everyone to come out and be informed.  The PTO general meeting will immediately follow the town hall meeting. The PTO will meet in the auditorium as well.
