FMS, let's show our support for teachers and their special projects! Today, we want to bring your attention to the Foundation for Excellence. They are raising funds for unique projects in our schools that enhance our children's educational experiences. This year the Foundation helped projects that included creating an elementary classroom garden, exploring the world of flying drones, and even composing new music for our middle schools, among other exciting initiatives. Let's come together and contribute to more wonderful initiatives in 2024! 👉 The Foundation’s main event is the Race to Educate. Consider supporting it: https://farmingtonschools.info/RaceToEducate2023. 👉 Read more about the projects funded by the Foundation: https://www.farmingtonschools.us/article/839280.
FMS, let's rally behind our teachers and show them our support! Today, we want to shine a spotlight on some amazing teachers who are raising funds for their classrooms through the Donors Choose platform. One remarkable teacher we'd like to mention is Ms. Wayne at Animas Elementary. Last year, she successfully raised $10,000 for art supplies, and she's working hard to achieve the same this year. We've witnessed the positive impact of her efforts, culminating in the fantastic Animas Art Show that took place last Friday (check out the photos!). We encourage you to consider supporting these dedicated teachers and their classroom projects. 👉 https://www.donorschoose.org/project/restocking-basic-art-supplies/7188707. 👉 https://www.donorschoose.org/project/great-seats-for-great-students/7108371. 👉 https://www.donorschoose.org/project/exploring-art-jobs-become-a-fashion-des/7208680.

From Stacy Chang, Director of Nursing and Student Wellness – Today is National School Nurse Day! Let's take a moment to appreciate our school nurses who have a positive impact on the well-being of children every day! This year, our nurses have been busy taking care of the health needs of our students. They have had a total of 89,349 visits to the health offices, where they administered medications 9,716 times and performed 7,029 medical procedures. Additionally, they conducted 12,719 screenings to ensure that children receive the support they need in areas such as child find, vision, and hearing. We are grateful for our school nurses and the incredible work they do to keep our students healthy! Also, a special shout-out to our health assistants for the support they provide our nurses. Thank you!
