Attendance Matters

Regular school attendance is necessary for your child's educational success.  Research shows that students who attend regularly achieve higher academically, maintain healthier relationships, and engage in less at-risk behaviors than those who struggle with regular attendance.  With that in mind, Farnsworth has developed attendance and tardy policies that stress the importance of school attendance.  Click here to read the FMS attendance and tardy policies.

Farnsworth Students Choose the News

Farnsworth students voted on which stories appeared in News-O-Matic

Farnsworth English Language Learners in grades 6,7, and 8 put Sheboygan on the map!  They recently served as Jr. Editors-in-Chief for News-O-Matic, a kids' daily newspaper that goes out across the United States. Via Skype, the students assisted Russ Kahn, Editor-in-Chief at Press4Kids in New York, in planning an edition. He presented them with 3 topics: World News, U.S. News, and Animals. Within each of those topics, they were presented with three possible news stories. Once they voted for which news stories to include, they then asked the questions they wanted answered in each article. They were so enthusiastic!

"Our" edition of News-O-Matic can be viewed here.

Chicago Trip 

ChicagoIt was a joy to have the students see and experience absolute masterpieces of art - both visual art and musical art.  The students marveled at the CSO concert, Lutoslawski's 'Musique Funebre', Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique" .  I was beyond proud to hear the students' positive reactions to the concert, and they showed openness to a variety of musical styles.  Chloe Mendez, a Farnsworth student, remarked, "Chicago was an amazing adventure to spend with my orchestra family!  The Art Institute was filled with beautiful artwork.  I'd definitely go back again!".  Erika Escamilla, another Farnsworth  student, stated, "the symphony we went to really pushed me to try my hardest because there are such great things you are able to ready in orchestra.  The pieces we heard were from some of my favorite composers.

Door Decorations For Advisory


Advisory classes were asked to decorate their door for the month of April.  They had to choose from one of the following themes:  respect, appropriate use of technology, or tardiness.  The positive message on the doors serve as a great reminder to help our students follow the PBIS matrix.

UW Marching Band In Madison


  100 of Farnsworth's band students had the amazing opportunity on Friday, April 25th, to hear the UW Marching band live in concert at the Kohl Center in Madison. Amoung the many various pieces the UW band played were songs from the Beatles, Phantom of the Opera and of course the "Fifth Quarter" tunes.
