The Buzz


Let’s continue to “Refuse to Lose” Middle School sports.  Five years ago, The Fort Mill School Board of Education was faced with severe budget cuts. Decisions were made to cut a variety of programs, one of which was the funding of middle school sports. At that time, a group of parents made a presentation to the board to raise money through the school athletic booster clubs with fundraising and charging athletes to pay $100 per sport to play. The board agreed to allow that to happen. Five years later, we are still in need of raising over $10,000 each year to allow sports to be played at Fort Mill Middle School; therefore, community support is paramount and greatly appreciated.

Our school is participating in the Duke Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).  This OPTIONAL 7th grade talent search identifies academically talented seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam as seventh graders. Participants gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for gifted students. For detailed information about the program, please contract Mrs. Bauer-Brown in the Guidance department.




Chess Club will meet on Mondays after school until 4:30 in the media center.  Any FMMS student is welcome to join!  Please review the registration form for more information.
