*Attention Students:
Reminders that need to be brought to your attention:
- Be sure to have a pass when you leave a classroom. You are to go directly to and from your destination, without stopping at other classrooms.
- Please be sure to lock your locker. Too many lockers are being left open and valuables are at risk.
- On cold mornings, students will be permitted to wait inside the building from 7:50-8:00 am. During this time period, students are to stay in the designated waiting area and away from doors. Students are not permitted to go to their lockers during this time. 
- We will be going out for recess as much as possible. Please be prepared with coats and other winter gear.
- Lunch procedures: Be sure to go to your locker before arriving at the MPR for lunch and bring everything you need with you - such as your coat, lunch and money. If you want to go to Alternate Lunch or the Library, be sure to sign out. You may only sign yourself out. Friends may not sign out other friends.
CLUBS- *Do you have questions about the clubs at FAMS? Over the years, FAMS has hosted a variety of clubs such as cooking club, club CARE, bowling club, book club, diversity club, newspaper club, photography club, stock market club, ping pong club, tennis club, geography club, chess club, chemistry club and FAMS Rock. Clubs are organized either by teachers who want to lead a club, or by a student who has an interest and wants to see a club started. In that case, the student must find 10 people who want to join the club, and find a teacher willing to be the club advisor, before finally speaking with Mr. Keiser for permission for the club to begin. 

Other extracurricular activities to be aware of are PLC events, music ensembles, our school musical, and our sports teams. If you do not play on a sports team or participate in a music group, consider cheering on our teams at home games and attending concerts and the school musical when it hits the stage in March.
