Third Grade Visit to Fountain Hills Middle School

On April 23, MMES third graders will get an exciting glimpse into their life as fourth graders by visiting Fountain Hills Middle School. The students will ride the bus to FHMS, arriving around 1:20 p.m. They will meet their future principal Mr. Markle and dean of students, Mr. Dellacona, then visit the fourth-grade classrooms while fourth-graders are at specials. They’ll get to find out what fourth grade will be like from their future teachers, including all the cool stuff they will be able to do next year. The visit will finish with a tour of the school, coming back to MMES around 2:00 p.m. More information will follow. Both the MMES and FHMS staff are looking forward to this exciting visit!
