FSLMA Eighth Grader Wins Art Contest


Panasonic offered the FSLMA art students an opportunity to create a Christmas card. Panasonic will send the cards to their employees and benefactors for the holiday season.  All of the art students got a chance to submit their best Christmas card designs, and Panasonic chose  eighth grader, Raven Heath as the winner of the competition. Great job Raven!!!  FSLMA Proud Principal Merritt and Raven are pictured on left.

On Friday, January 11th, 2019, FSLMA had a fish fry and pep rally in celebration of our football team winning the championship.  We enlisted one of our Partners in Education, the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Columbus, Georgia to fry the fish and french fries.  The members started cooking at 7am that morning!  FSLMA wants to give this group of dedicated men a BIG THANK YOU for helping to make our football banquet so memorable. 

The Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club of Columbus, Georgia is dedicated to participating in the communities and supporting numerous charitable functions including senior citizen homes , students developmental activities, scholarships, supplies for schools and food and fund drives for charitable organizations.  They can, and they will assist in educating the young and old about the contributions made to America’s Land of the Free and roles played by the Buffalo Soldiers to keep it safe, and help it grow.



Our proud principal, Mrs. Brenda Merritt and the faculty and staff of FSLMA, The BEST Middle School in the World, want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our supporters in the community.
