Free & Reduced Meal Application

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.

The PTO has only two more spots to fill this year.  Please take a look at what is needed and contact Amber Caver at president@fbmspto.org if you are interested!

School Store Volunteers Needed

The FBMS school store, the "Frank Black Market," sells hoodies, t-shirts, and other Panther spirit items.  It is open to students every Wednesday during both lunch periods, and volunteers are needed to make that happen!  If you have never worked at the school store before, don't worry.  A simple guidance manual is provided to help you with opening and closing the store. 

If you would like to sign up to volunteer, there is a school store volunteer sign-up button on the FBMS PTO home page, or you can just click here.
