Dear Falcon Family:
Fort Settlement Middle School prides itself on having an overall educational curriculum that rivals any school. Maintaining this standard of excellence requires financial resources beyond the amount received from the district. Your PTO is also second to none, thanks to dedicated teachers, administration, and our volunteer community.
The basic district allotment remains at $101 per child. The Falcon Fundraiser allows each family to donate money directly to the PTO through a tax deductible¹ contribution. 100% of your donation goes directly to fund classroom and school enhancements. No other fund-raising program offers this! Working with FSMS administration and teachers, your generous donations, provides and funds programs, services and technology gifts for each student.
As a result of generous contributions to the Falcon Fundraiser 2014 - 2015 the PTO was able to purchase the following:
· Commons Area Projector System - benefitting students, administration and the FSMS community.
· Commons Area Sound System - including wireless microphone, additional speakers and updated technology. The system benefits all students and supports our award-winning Fine Arts Departments.
· Science Department – updated LabQuest devices allowing real-time scientific experiment results.
· ELA – 15 additional Google Chrome Books – the most used research tool in ELA.
· PE/Health – 7th Grade Health Education Program.
· Social Studies – curriculum enhancements for 7th and 8th grade.
· Art Department and Computer Lab – new printers.
· Communication – agendas for each student, Digital LED Sign for Commons Area and TV monitors.
Without donations, our school would not have these valuable educational tools!
The PTO’s goal is to raise $29,000 this year through the Falcon Fundraiser. We are asking that each Falcon family consider a donation in the amount of $100, which amounts to just 56.5 cents per school day. We greatly appreciate any size donation, and are striving for 100% participation from our FSMS families this year!
We have enclosed a Falcon Fundraiser Form. We would appreciate you donating to help our school.
Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to another fantastic year at FSMS and want you to be a part of it!
