Principal's Message

Principal Whitfield

Dear Wildcat Family,

As this very unusual school year comes to an end, I would like to take a moment to thank the students, parents, teachers, staff, and community for your dedication, hard work, and support you have shown to ensure that we continued to educate the students. We had successes and some challenges, yet despite all, we continued to work together to get the work done to ensure our students' safety and educational

Now, we find ourselves reflecting on the unprecedented year that is ending and already preparing for the fall when we hope that all of our students will be back in school together. On behalf of my faculty and staff, I want to thank you for your understanding, kindness, and prayers as our faculty and staff members worked tirelessly to provide quality learning experiences for our face-to-face and virtual students. It was not a surprise that our students and teachers showed how flexible, tenacious, and creative they were while navigating this new and different way of teaching and learning. Everyone has demonstrated resilience and has come through this challenging time learning important lessons about ourselves as learners and educators.

Thank you, faculty, staff, and students, for your hard work throughout the school year. I am so honored
to be your principal; you make me proud to be a Wildcat! I am grateful for the laughter we shared this
year, the teamwork we displayed, and the never-quit attitude from each of you.
Best wishes to our sixth graders, who will be moving on to middle school and will be missed greatly.

I wish you an enjoyable, safe, and healthy summer. Remember, children need a variety of experiences to grow and flourish. Take time to visit your local library, parks or take a walk with your student. Talk and read together. All these experiences will help your child be ready for the next school year at FMSMS. During the 2021-2022 school year is when we are going to "Let the Good Times Roll!"

Go Wildcats!

Dr. Whitfield
