FCMB Information - Week of September 26th

Congratulations!
Congratulations on the FCMB's "EXCELLENT" rating (II) at the Zips Invitational this past Saturday. Your hard work shows, and your dedication to continue striving for the "Superior" rating is even more evident. We are excited to see the progress this upcoming weekend!

Just a quick apology for the "Pasta" confusion. It truly was a miscommunication and the kids ended up getting some impromptu pizza that was ordered and ready for us when we arrived in Brunswick. To make up for it, students will be fed "PASTA & SALAD" before we leave for the Medina game on September 30th. As always, if your student prefers to bring something to eat or you would like to drop off something after school for them, you are more than welcome. Lastly, in general, it is always wise for students to bring some quick snacks, (pretzels, grapes, granola bars, water etc) in their bags.

Quick note: We are still in need of water donations for the season. We are starting to run low on our stock. Please remember, since Covid, we do not use the squeeze Gatorade bottles anymore, and it would take entirely too long to dispense water from the igloo containers into cups for the students. We also provide water to our visiting bands during third quarter. If you are able to donate a case of water, please drop off before a football game at the FAC garage door. Thank you to our "Water Fairy" who recently donated 400+ water bottles to help get us through the past weekend and the upcoming weekend. It is much appreciated! Thank you!

Be Prepared!

It's not even October yet and the weather has already brought us our first cool evening. Students should layer appropriately and be prepared for inclement weather. Time to bring out the hand warmers!
