The FCMS Jazz Ensemble will be playing at the December 8th Jaguar Game. To celebrate this opportunity, we are doing a joint fundraiser with the Jags. FCMS families can buy tickets to any of the three Jaguars games in December and $5 per ticket will be donated back to the band.  More information.

FCMS announces the Fruit Cove Middle School National History Day school-wide competition. National History Day, formerly known as History Fair, is open to any FCMS student who wishes to participate in this voluntary opportunity to explore historical topics of personal interest and develop research, reading, and critical thinking skills.

National History Day is an “academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression for 6th- to 12th-grade students. By participating in NHD, students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights and artists as they create unique contemporary expressions of history. The experience culminates in a series of contests at the local and affiliate levels and an annual national competition in the nation’s capital in June.” (nhd.org)

Student work will be judged in a school-wide competition on January 27, 2020. Winners from the school competition will go on the district-level competition on March 4, 2020.

Students who are interested in more information should visit www.nhd.org as well as see their social studies teacher.
