Dear 8th Grade Falcon Families,
It is hard to believe that the school year is half over and with this comes the realization that your child’s middle school experience is nearly at its end. We could not be more proud of the growth and achievements of the class of 2025! To celebrate these successes, the 8th grade team is hard at work planning several events.
The events are detailed below as are the requirements for attendance. We want each student to be able to fully participate, so we are sharing the guidelines now. Not only are these celebrations in honor of the hard work students put into their middle school career, but they also serve as an incentive for students to continue meeting our high academic and conduct standards.
The following is a brief synopsis of each of the end of the year events:
- 8th Grade Dance: scheduled for Friday, June 1st from 6:00-8:30 PM in the FMS gym
- 8th Grade Class Trip: the specific time and place have yet to be determined but it will be fun!
- 8th Grade End of the Year Cookout: scheduled for Thursday, June 7th from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm
The requirements to attend these events are:
- during the third marking period students cannot be suspended,
- during the fourth marking period students must not be suspended or be assigned in-school suspension,
- additionally, students cannot receive a failing grade for any course during the third marking period or during the first half of the fourth marking period.
- 8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony: scheduled for Friday, June 8th from 6:00-8:00 PM at Highland Springs High School (15 S Oak Ave, Highland Springs, VA 23075). In order to attend students:
- must not be suspended at during the fourth nine weeks.
Our goal is for ALL students to attend ALL events. However, we impress upon the students to do their best academically and maintain appropriate behavior as they both factor in the decision on whether a student can participate in the end of year activities.
We will provide more information, invitations and permission slips for each event once we get closer to the dates.
Fairfield staff and PTSA are working diligently to ensure that our 8th grade students have a memorable end to their FMS career. Should you have any further questions about these events, please contact Ms. Lee at email@example.com.
