Ready to explore the IB Middle Years Program at Fairfield Middle School? 

Join the FMS Falcons virtually this Thursday, October 15th, between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. for their annual IB Open House.

Use this Open House link as early as today to view videos about IB and FMS, leave us questions you’d like answered during the event, and access resources like our fall newsletter.  Save the page because it includes Thursday evening’s schedule, and the links to each IB subject session listed will go live at 5:10 p.m. that night.   The schedule and links will also be available on Fairfield’s website:  https://fairfield.henricoschools.us/

Explore IB during one of their two duplicate, one-hour sessions that begin at 5:30 p.m. and again at 6:30 p.m.  If those times don’t fit your Thursday schedule, the evening has been designed so you can jump in to start your visit anytime between 5:30 and 6:30 and still have the full experience.  Guests who logon after 6:30 will still be able to participate in a condensed experience that ends at 7:30.

The FMS team can’t wait to showcase IB with you!

Square with "Wolverine Weekly" text


Greetings WMS Families!

Our Wolverines have so much SWAGG and our Administrative and PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) Teams had a blast delivering rewards to 99 Wolverines on Friday! Please ask your student how he/she is showing their SWAGG in the classroom and to share their Class DOJO points. We are looking forward to continuing to reward our students in the virtual setting and when we return to face to face instruction! You can follow me on Twitter @BroudyErica to see pictures from our travels!

We are so excited about our National Hispanic Heritage Month activities for next week! Please ask your student what they are learning from these informative and engaging lessons! We continue to offer after-school tutoring, and clubs. Please support your scholar with navigating these resources to support their academic and social-emotional growth in this virtual space and beyond!

Please be in touch with any questions, concerns, or needs. I enjoy serving your family!
