School News

The National Junior Honor Society at Fruit Cove Middle is sponsoring a Toy Drive December 1-8.  Please send in or drop off any new, unwrapped toys for donation.  All toys will be going to the Toys for Tots charity, St. Johns chapter.  The homeroom with the most toys donated will win a Holiday treat.  Let’s help spread good cheer and happiness this holiday season. 

The National Junior Honor Society is providing tutoring and homework help on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school.  The sessions will end at 2:40, so make sure to arrange for your child’s transportation home.  Tuesdays the tutoring will be in Mrs. Doemel’s room and on Thursdays in Ms. Farbo’s room.  If tutoring is cancelled for any reason, an announcement will be made and teachers will be notified by email.

Forgotten items If a student has left schoolwork, a project, PE clothes, a band instrument, etc., please drop it off no later than 8:15AM.  These items will not be taken after that time.  The only exceptions would be lunch, money for lunch, glasses, or medicine.  Thank you for your help with this!
Early checkout If you need to take your student out of school early, the latest time that he/she can be picked up is at 1:20PM (12:20PM on Wednesdays).  If you come after that time, you will need to wait until dismissal at 1:50PM (12:50PM on Wednesdays) to get your student.
