Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools and PTAs (including FMHS) that were pursuing the National PTA School of Excellence program during 2019-2020 have been automatically enrolled in the program for next year. We did receive a Certificate of Recognition from National PTA which can be viewed here : SOE Certificate148.
FMHS students who participated in the PTA Reflections program were recently recognized at an awards ceremony at FMHS.

National PTA’s Reflections program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life. The theme for the 2019-2020 program year was “Look Within.” The theme for 2020-2021 will be “I Matter Because … ”
Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts.
