FQMS administration acknowledges how incredibly hard the FQMS staff works on a daily basis. Although the virtual environment is different, their dedication is a constant reminder of our values as a connected, collective community and of pulling together as a school family. From working to go above and beyond to ensure students have great experiences to standing in the pouring rain to get out supplies for our kids - we are lucky to have the FQMS teachers and staff. Please take a minute to share some positive encouragement for staff members that make a positive impact for you or your family. To uplift any FQMS staff member who goes above and beyond to support, show care, connect, build community or anything else that positively impacts students and families, click on this link. This form goes to FQMS Administration for us to celebrate the staff member.

FQMS PTA is pleased to announce that going forward, your PTA membership will be managed via MemberHub. We have said goodbye to our trusted old platform that was used in the recent past! Please visit MemberHub to join, securely purchase your membership and make a donation, and activate your MemberHub account, and if you are interested in volunteer opportunities, please check out our new Volunteer Opportunities.
The 2020-21 school year may look a little different, but the PTA needs your support now more than ever. We hope you will join us!
“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John C. Maxwell
Mrs. Allen, our current PTA President, will no longer be able to continue in her role this academic year. We are looking for someone to assume her role. The Presidents' position is a great way to get to know staff, and other parents in the community. The PTSA has a fabulous team in place ready for a great leader! The only downside of the role is the lack of programming the PTSA can do is drastically limited due to the current pandemic. Unfortunately, without the President in place, the PTA can't function properly. Please contact the PTSA for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voting on July 13, 2020 at 7:00 pm
The PTSA will vote July 14th at 7:00 pm on the Clarksville Commons patio on the proposed slate of officers for the 2020-2021 school year. Any additional nominations must be submitted no later than July 3, 2020 to email@example.com. We hope you can all attend! It's going to be a great year!

Dear Folly Quarter Families,
We hope you are safe and healthy. We are all looking forward to returning to school when it is safe to do so. Currently, the school is being completely sanitized and the FQMS PTA would like to acknowledge the work of the dedicated staff members who have gone above and beyond during this time, as well as those who are idled – the FQMS custodial and cafeteria staff, and the contract bus drivers.
The PTA has set up a donation page through the Gifts of Gratitude program, which is the same one used for holiday donations. This is a convenient and completely voluntary way to express gratitude to the dedicated staff members and bus drivers who are working to ensure that the building is safe to return to, and those who take our kids to and from school every day but are currently not able to do so.
Here’s how the Gifts of Gratitude Program works:
Due to the current situation, we are only collecting payment via PayPal, and there is a $3 processing fee added to online donations.
The deadline for families to participate in this optional donation program is April 17.
To get started, simply complete the online form. If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Sonia Chapin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Falcon Legacy Brick Garden is the perfect opportunity to leave your mark at FQMS! The Brick Garden defines the entrance to FQMS and is a lasting reminder of Falcon Pride, participation and community spirit.
These personalized bricks can be engraved with up to three lines of lettering per brick and up to 15 characters per line. There are endless possibilities to send a message of congratulations, appreciation or inspiration. Perhaps you’d just like your name on the brick to commemorate your family’s years at FQMS. Bricks are added to the Garden only once per year – typically near the school’s year end.
Order your personalized bricks by June 10! For more information, contact Becky Kasbeer-Betty (FQMS.BrickGarden@gmail.com)
