Welcome to Sixth Grade at Forbes Middle School!
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 for grades. Skyward is located on the For Parents page of the FMS website or at this link:

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. 6th grade teachers want to emphasize that BYOD only happens with teacher permission – otherwise student devices are expected to be off/silenced and out of sight during class. Students are welcome to use their personal electronic devices during the morning time (8:15-8:41am) while in the cafeteria. Students also may use their phone beginning after school at 4:00pm.
