8th Grade Graduation Ceremony

On June 7, we bid farewell to our beloved 8th grade students; some have been part of the FMS community for over 10 years. They will make their mark on several different public and private schools across the valley, taking with them a solid foundation from which to grow and become a strong, successful part of society. We wish them the best of luck as they go after their dreams!
