  • News from our School Counselors

    6th Grade

    We are now at the home stretch for the 2021-22 school year. I am so proud of my 6th-grade scholars and how far they have come through all the obstacles this year has brought us. For the month of May, we will complete SOLs (Reading and Math). I will also be in the classroom at some point in mid-May to work on Major Clarity and we will take a personality survey. I hope the weather will cooperate more with us so we can be outside and use our outdoor learning spaces! The school counseling team will continue to work on the schedules for the 2022-23 school year. If you have any questions or need to change a class, please reach out to me! I hope May brings you all great joy!

    Our school year is quickly winding down.  It has been a pleasure working with this seventh-grade class.  Our seventh grade reading SOL test is next week on Tuesday, May 10.  The following week, seventh graders will be taking the mathematics SOL test on Tuesday, May 17.  If I can be of any assistance as we turn into the home stretch, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    8th Grade

    It’s so crazy that it is MAY already!!!

    The big topic in May is the SOLs - here is a rundown of the schedule for FCMS:

    MAY 3 = SOL: 8 Science

    MAY 5 = SOL: 8 Civics

    MAY 10 = SOL: 8/7th Reading ; 6th Math

    MAY 17 = SOL: 8/7th Math, 6th Reading

    Camp Wood, the transition camp offered to rising 9th graders, will be offered on July 27, 28, and August 3 from 9:00 a.m. to Noon each day.  Students will only need to attend one of the dates, not all three.  Athletes and Band students will want to attend one of the July dates due to practices and band camp in August. 

    High school is also getting closer and closer!  There are a ton of feelings that go along with this transition.  Excitement along with fear, joy, nervousness, and sadness are just a few.  If you notice your scholar is having any difficulties with the upcoming transition, please let me know.  I’m here to help!
