• Welcome to Sixth Grade at Forbes Middle School! 



    School Supplies:
    Please bring all school supplies on the first day of school. Your teachers will pick up what is needed for each class. The school supply lisst for 6th grade s linked here: GISD School Supply Information and click on the Forbes Middle School link.


    Skyward Family Access:
    Skyward is an online system that Georgetown schools use to help parents/guardians stay up to date with their children’s attendance and grades. Using the program, you can check your child’s grades in each class. It also allows you to enter your e-mail address, and the system will automatically send you e-mail alerts. Skyward is located on the For Parents page of the FMS website or at this link: SKYWARD FAMILY ACCESS


    Policy for personal electronic devices:
    Bring Your Own Device is a GISD program which allows students with mobile devices to use them in class with teacher permission. Teachers want to emphasize that BYOD only happens with teacher permission – otherwise student devices are expected to be out of sight during class. Students are welcome to use their  personal electronic devices during the morning time (8:25-8:41am) while in the hallways. In the mornings, devices are not to be used in the cafeteria - only in the hallways.


    If you have specific questions or concerns regarding sixth grade team policies or procedures, please contact Yvonne Smith, 6th grade Team Leader at SmithY@georgetownisd.org.
