The Fort Mill Middle School Class of 2017 (6th grade) is a great community of students. Education and working as a team are the key plays in winning. In order to promote team spirit, pride, and enthusiasm for the learning in the quarters to come, we have designed a T-shirt that reflects our sense of community. The shirts are $15.00, and if possible, we would like all 6th grade students to get one. We would like to show how special Grade 6 is by having Team T-shirt Days and also by having shirts to wear on field trips. The students are going to look awesome!
The Fort Mill Middle School Canned Food Drive starts Monday, October 27th. All food collected will go the Fort Mill Care Center to feed hungry kids in our town. The grade level that collects the most cans will get extra outside time during lunch and get to see some of their favorite teachers get drenched in the Polar Ice Challenge. Wouldn’t it be great to see Mrs. Honeycutt, Mrs. Elkin, Ms. Still, Mr. Galbraith, and Mr. Schlicher get cooled off by a bucket full of ice water? Bring in all food donations to your homeroom teachers starting Monday. Let’s help out the hungry kids in Fort Mill by bringing in as many cans as you can.
