New Announcements


End of Year Testing

Our students completed their end of the year testing last week.  If your student missed one of the test, Ms. Elkins, our testing coordinator, will be contacting your student to reschedule their test.  If you have any questions about making up a test, please email Ms. Elkins at 


Parents/Students may view their score on the EOG through PowerSchool.  The assignment is labeled "(Subject) EOG."  The score corresponds to the following;


5 - Level 5 proficiency score

4 - Level 4 proficiency score

3 - Level 3 proficiency score


1 - NON PROFICIENT (detailed report will be available to parents mid-late June)


Additional information about the EOG and an interpretation of the scores can be found at this LINK


Individual Student Reports (ISR) will be available on PowerSchool the week of June 19th.  The report will provide additional details about your child's EOG score and how they compare to students in the state and district.  More information about ISRs can be found at this LINK. 


Students that did not score proficiency on the EOG and passed the class, should have received an email from me about the retesting opportunity.  I will send the final email to parents of students that are eligible to retake the 7th grade ELA and 8th grade Science on Monday, June 5th. 


8th Grader Returning Chromebooks

All 8th graders will be returning their Chromebooks & chargers to school on Tuesday, June 6 (if in Mr. Oates Social Studies Class) & Wednesday, June 7 (if in Ms. Rumsey or Ms. VanVield's SS Class).  Students will receive a new Chromebook at the beginning of their 9th grade year.  Please have students bring their Chromebook & chargers to return.


"All Day Use Students" will be returning their Chromebooks & chargers to the school on Thursday, June 8.  These students will receive new devices next school year.  They will not be on Day Use at the beginning of next school year. 



We have sold out of our yearbooks.  If you would still like to purchase a yearbook, you may place your name on the waitlist.  If we have any yearbooks remaining after distribution, parents on the waitlist will be contacted first.  Yearbooks will be distributed to students on Tuesday, June 6th.

Thank you 8th Grade Parents

I want to give a big shout out and thank you to all of the parents that assisted with making our 8th grade dance special and memorable for our 8th grade students.  Everything from the decorations to the food was wonderful and I know our kiddos will not forget that night.  You all truly brought Hawaii to FVMS!  Thank you all so much for your time, resources, donations, money, and smiles!
