First Methodist School – Partnering with the Lions Club!
On Saturday, 8/25, FMS held its 2018-2019 Back to School Bash. Students and their families met their new teachers, got to know their classroom and friends, and had the opportunity to have their vision checked for free thanks to the Duncanville Lions Club KidSight USA program.
The 2018-2019 school year for students ages 1 year – kindergarten begins Tue., 9/4. 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!
