Welcome Rocket Family to a new school year. My name is Mr. James Herron and I am starting my 4th year as Principal of Fayetteville Middle School. As we begin the 2022 – 2023 school year, I would like to thank all of the student and staff for their hard work over the past year. The middle school had the highest state math scores in the county in grades 6, 7, and 8. Congratulations to the teachers and the students on a job well done. This year we will be introducing a new ELA curriculum for grades 6 – 8. Students will have access to textbooks online and in the classroom. We are excited to see our students and staff use the new curriculum this year. We would like to welcome four new staff members to the Rocket Family this year. Mrs. Campbell, who student taught with Mr. Frump, will be teaching 6th grade Science and Social Studies. Mrs. Buchanan, who last year taught at the High School, will be teaching 7th grade ELA. Ms. Huston, who just graduated from Shawnee State University, will be teaching 8th grade ELA. And last but not least, Mrs. Schelling, who formally taught at the high school, is returning to take over the Middle School MH classroom. Please welcome the all and make them feel like part of the Fayetteville family. With the beginning of a new year, I am excited to return and ready to get to work. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school at 513-875-2829. Let’s have a great year and as always… GO ROCKETS!
