There will be a DJ, a bounce house, games, and more.  PTO will be selling Pizza and snacks also as well as fun trinkets and  memorabilia.

SFMS PTO

St. Francis Middle School (SFMS) established a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) to support students and staff. Objectives are achieved through monthly meetings that involve parents, school staff and community members. The success of this organization depends on parent involvement. If you would like to help plan activity nights, address the needs of the school and plan fundraisers, please join us for a meeting. Our meetings are as follows: October 9, November 13, December 11, January 8, February 12, March 12, April 9 and May 14. Our meetings are from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm in the SFMS Media Center.

 

CONFERENCES

We will be having parent/teacher conferences on October 11 and 16, 2018. Teachers will be available from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm. We are asking families to please limit the time spent with each teacher to 7 minutes. If you need more time than that, please feel free to set up a meeting with that individual teacher. We look forward to seeing you there.

SFMS PTO FUNDRAISER

Our first PTO fundraiser of the year is just around the corner. This year we are starting off with "World's Finest Chocolate" fundraiser. There will be a permission slip sent home on Friday, September 21 that parents need to sign. Students can drop off their signed slips in the main office. On September 28, students that have returned their permission slip will be given their box of candy to start selling. We look forward to having a very successful fundraiser.
