First Methodist School – Our Teachers Are Lifelong Learners!
Last week, FMS staff returned to campus for two days of intense training on several topics including Outdoor Play for Young Children and School Safety.
We are currently enrolling for the 2018-2019 school year for students ages 1 year – kindergarten. If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us! We look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary next school year. Mark your calendar for November 2018 when we will have special anniversary celebrations!
