First Methodist School – Commotion in the Ocean!
John 21:6 -“He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.”
Last week, FMS students learned all about starfish and Jesus’ miraculous catch of fish on the Sea of Galilee!
We are currently enrolling for SUMMER FUN and the 2017-2018 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.
