Dear FMS Parents and Guardians

Early this year we sent out a parent survey seeking your input and feedback on the areas of strength at FMS, as well as, areas of growth we can focus on going forward.  We greatly appreciate the feedback we received from our 178 respondents.  The work of teachers and staff with students and families, diversity and communication were identified as areas of strength.  Meanwhile, communication, concerns with school climate, and parent engagement opportunities were identified as areas to focus on going forward. 

Upon receiving this feedback we met with staff and building leaders to analyze the results.  I am proud of how reflective and sincerely our staff considered the input and discussed ways to persistently pursue improvements.  I would like to highlight some of the initiatives we have been working on to support students and the student experience at FMS:

  • We have been working Dr. Clayton Cook from the University of MN to develop and implement Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for students, to include supporting student social/emotional learning and growth.
  • We continue to develop our Tiger Grit (PBIS) processes to support the teaching of school expectations and the development of a positive school climate.
  • We have established a partnership with the Lee Carlson Center, which affords us 2 on-site school linked mental health therapists.
  • We have added a Behavior Analyst and a Social Worker to our staff this year to enhance our ability to better understand and develop ways to support each student.

We plan to continue to seek parent/guardian feedback each year going forward in order to consistently look for ways to continually improve our school.  In addition, next year we are excited to implement the following:

  • 5th grade will be comprised of 3 teams so each student has a strong sense of belonging with their individual team of teachers and students.
  • We are embarking on a sustained professional development relationship with Dr. Sharroky Hollie, focusing on the development of Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning strategies.
  • We are also adding direct instruction of Social/Emotional Learning and Cybercitizenship curriculum into our daily Homeroom classes.
  • We will continue to look at ways to enhance our communication with families and develop more opportunities for parent engagement at FMS.

The FMS Administrative team and staff appreciate your continued support and partnership as we strive to consistently improve the supports we offer to students and families.

Thank you,

Fridley Middle School Administration
