Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

Viking Family!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Finland Middle School, where we are committed to providing the best possible education for your student. As long as I can remember, school has always brought about much excitement for me. Being a Viking is full of possibilities and I have great anticipation for the successes to come!

Working collaboratively is a necessity for student success. My hope is that this will be the first of many contacts that you will have from the school. I believe strongly in the partnership that should exist between the home and school and encourage you to become a part of our PTSA. Frequent home to school communication is essential and you should expect it often from the staff at FMS. Please know that you can always call or stop in the office anytime you would like to discuss your student. My office is always open to you and your child, as I am here to assist you and also be a resource for the both of you.

The opportunities for you child continue to grow with the progression through grade levels. We have many extra-curricular activities that your child can become a part of. Students who actively participate in these extra-curricular activities, have a higher success rate because of their involvement in school. Please encourage your child to become involved and be the best Viking possible!
