Wow! We can’t express enough how proud we are of all of the 7th and 8th grade students. Our FSM History Day was a success, and FSM students did an outstanding job showcasing their hard work! Months of research and hard work were evident in each student’s project.

Twenty six students represented FSM at the regional History Day event on Saturday, March 3rd at St. Paul College.
