From the PrincipalPicture of Wendy Somers, Fruitport Middle School Principal

Our entire staff at Fruitport Middle School welcomes you and your student to our building.  We believe that FMS is a great place to be a middle school learner and we look forward to sharing your child with you.

At FMS we believe in all students’ abilities to be successful and know it’s our job to help your middle school student be all he/she can be.  To that end, we provide both challenging curriculum and additional supports when students struggle.  This fall we will be changing the way we challenge up and coming mathematical minds by beginning a three-year acceleration of mathematics.  Starting in 6th grade those students who need and can handle a faster-paced curriculum will begin their three-year track of math that will conclude with HS Algebra in 8th grade.  We also provide HS Spanish and advanced studies in our related arts & academics courses.  Perhaps Advanced Art or PE interests your child?  There are sports and clubs for every interest and our staff is great at providing supports so that your child can become involved in the school community!  

At FMS we are committed to ensuring that students are well prepared for high school and the world beyond.  To that end, we rally around every child who shows signs of struggling academically.  We provide reading and math intervention during the day and after school assistance every Tuesday and Thursday staffed by our own middle school teachers.  We also know that sometimes other things get in the way of learning and have built a system of behavioral supports and county resources that can help our FMS families when needed.  

The middle school years can be a trying time for young people.  There is no other time since infancy, that a child’s body grows and changes as much as it will during the ages of 10-15.  Unfortunately unlike a baby, young adolescents are completely aware of all the changes they are going through and can often be self-conscious about themselves.  Our staff knows that while some of our middle schoolers look like adults, they are still only 11, 12 or 13 years of age and make decisions with a brain that is still developing.  We believe part of our role as educators is to help young adolescents navigate these years.  We help students gain skills as they explore new friendships, as they learn to advocate for themselves with peers and adults using language that is positive and healthy.  We teach them to think through their decisions and the impact their decisions have on themselves and others around them.   At FMS we emphasize not so much the mistakes we make, but what we do with what we learn from our mistakes!  

An FMS student LEADS in all that they do every day by Living with Integrity, Exercising Self-Control, Always Respectful, Demonstrating Responsibility, and putting Safety First.  Every day students are recognized for these qualities.  We hold monthly competitions and end of quarter celebrations.  We believe that by focusing on our positives we help all students be their most successful self!

We encourage our families to communicate with us and let us know if you are not getting the information you need to be a partner with us this school year.  Our job is to go above and beyond for you child.  We appreciate the trust you have in us to do just that.
