Welcome to Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School
The Home of Phantom Pride
Our Vision is for all students to enter high school with the skills necessary for a successful high school career (High School Readiness).
Our Mission is to promote the highest academic achievement through a positive and safe learning environment.
Once again, Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have invited all Florida students to participate in the 2016 Hispanic Heritage Month art and essay contests which will be centered around the theme, “Honoring Hispanic American Heroes: Veterans, Military, Law Enforcement and First Responders.” Students in grades K-3 have a chance to win a cash prize by submitting artwork, and students in grades 4-12 can earn a 4-year Florida Prepaid Scholarship through the essay contest.
As you plan summer reading activities for your students, consider asking them to read about Florida’s Hispanic American heroes and either write an essay or create artwork for submission to the contest.
The prizes could transform the lives of a student in your class or school. I hope that you will encourage all of your students to take full advantage of this opportunity to enhance their appreciation for Hispanic American History and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations.
Additionally, students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to nominate full-time, Hispanic American educators in elementary, middle and high schools for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award.
The deadline for all submissions is 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 9, 2016.
Please visit the link below to enter in the contest. Thank you.
