Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in May since 1949 to raise awareness about mental health across the country. Folly Quarter Middle School and the rest of the country are participating to help fight stigma and educate our youth and families for the month of May. This year, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is having the More Than Enough Campaign as an opportunity to come together and remember the inherent value we each hold, regardless of our diagnosis, appearance, socioeconomic status, background, or ability. #morethanenough.

Parents and Students:
There are 424 books checked out from our Media Center (266 of these books are currently overdue). That's a lot of books to collect in 2 weeks! Please help by encouraging your student to return books as soon as possible, especially overdue books.
Can't find them? Have students look in lockers, classrooms, under the bed, under the car seats, between the couch cushions, etc!
Thanks so much for your help!
