Your child will be receiving the KNOW HIV/AIDS Prevention curriculum and the sexual health unit through their Physical Education class during the next 2-3 Wednesdays.
This prevention program is government mandated and is presented to students each year beginning in 5th grade. Two preview nights have been offered by the district this year to view this curriculum.
If you missed the lottery in February and are still interested in choicing your student into Illahee we will begin accepting applications on April 1st at the main office. There may still be room in our 5th grade program so please drop off your application if you are still interested. For 6, 7 and 8th grade we are currently compiling a wait list and you will be added to it based on first come first serve.
On Wednesday, March 25th current 6th and 7th grade students registered for their next year’s electives. Advisory teachers guided students through this process. You can find a copy of the registration forms below. We encourage that you review the forms online so that you are aware of the choices your child will be making.
Thank you for your help with this!

- Is your student intellectually engaged and highly involved in activities?
- Is your student not just TOP of the group, but BEYOND the group?
- Does your student absorb information and then manipulate it?
- Does your student think creatively to solve problems?
- Does your student think independently and at times challenge authority?
- Does your student take risks consistently because he/she wants to know what will happen?
Students who perform two standard deviations above their FWPS peers’ norm on district and state assessments will be considered for the Highly Capable Program. Students who are nominated will be assessed on a cognitive achievement test if their State and District tests are not two standard deviations above the norm.
*Students who are already identified for HCP will keep that designation; it is unnecessary to nominate them.
The 1st-11th grade HCP nomination window will be open from Monday, January 12th, through Monday, January 26th.
FWPS Counselor Dave Wilson will be leading a STEP Teen; Systematic Training for Effective Parenting of Teenagers class and support group one evening per week for 10 weeks beginning the last week of October.
Your middle school student is about to change. Get ready.
