PTSA Movie Night  

 The 7s Have Arrived at FAMMS!

Counting by 7s

FAMMS students were surprised with a gift, a copy of a book called Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan as a part of our One School, One Book program. Every student received a book and it will not be collected at the end of the school year.  All Macaws are being encouraged to read the book –students and staff members alike. We have some fun activities planned (including a visit from the author) and we are very excited about the program. We hope everyone will participate! 

UCR Expanding Horizons
UCR will be offering a number of summer programs for students this year. For students in grades 3-8, UCR has created the Expanding Horizons program that exposes students to creative and challenging material in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). For High School students, there is the 2016 Summer Academy, where college-level courses are offered through the UCR Summer Session and FastStart, an intensive five-week program for incoming UCR freshman from disadvantaged backgrounds who aspire to medical and other science based careers. Finally there is UCR ARTSblock for teens age 15-19, where students learn to create video documentaries. For more information please see this link
