I look forward to seeing parents and students on Tuesday, August 10! You can come to FMS from 9-11am, 1-3pm, or 5-7pm. If you are in 6th grade and still need to be paired with an instrument, we will do that during the first few days in band class. I have also posted the updated calendar and band handbook which will be distributed during the first few days of school.
