Good Afternoon Fountain International Magnet School Families,

This is Charlotte Martinez with our weekly updates. 

On Monday, September 18th, the 3rd Grade Student Ambassador Applications are due.  Also on Monday, we will have our Watch DOG Kick-Off Meeting for new dads, grandpas, or uncles who would like to serve as Watch DOGs this school year. The kick-off will take place at 6:00 PM in the FIMS’ Cafeteria.

On Wednesday, September 20th, we will have our picture day! This is also a formal dress day. Please keep in mind that leggings as pants and black jeans are not a part of the daily school uniform. Also on Wednesday, our school will have its Bronco Skate Night at Skate City from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  Students are encouraged to wear Bronco gear, and this is always a fun night for all!

On Thursday, September 21st, our school will be hosting a Peace Summit in conjunction with The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day"), which is observed around the world each year. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace. Our Peace Summit will include a student guest speaker as well as activities for students that focus around how one person can take action.

Finally, we want to congratulate Aletheia Johnson our 5K ROAR for Fitness T-shirt Art Contest Winner! Our ROAR for Fitness Race Registration is now open! Parents may register themselves and students for the race by going to https://runsignup.com/fimsroar. Students are also encouraged to collect pledges for participating in the race. The student that collects the most pledges will win an awesome prize, and the class that collects the most pledges will win a pizza party! All of this information can be found on the FIMS’ Webpage!

Please turn in RSVPs by this Friday. I was a little ahead in my earlier message.

One Tuesday, September 12th, we will have our first Student of the Month Breakfast at 7:50 AM in the FIMS' Gym.  Also on Tuesday, two of our second grade classes will be going on a field trip to the El Pueblo Heritage Museum. We will also have a school site visit from the IBARMS' Director from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

Finally on Friday, we will kick-off our 5K ROAR for Fitness Race registration for students and families with our student assembly at 1:00 PM. This will be a fun and exciting event for students as they learn all about our healthy fundraising event and find out who won the t-shirt design contest.  Friday is also the last day to sign up to be a corporate sponsor. We need all corporate sponsor forms turned in by this Friday, September 15th, to guarantee corporate sponsor logos on our race t-shirts and bibs. 

Lastly, we will be doing uniform checks this week. Please be sure that students are not wearing boots, and if girls are wearing skirts or dresses without tights, please make sure they have shorts underneath.
