Important Locker and Lock Information
All returning 8th students in Mohawk are expected to bring back the lock they were assigned the previous year and brought home over the summer. New 8th grade students will be provided one, free-hanging, combination lock in Homeroom at the start of the year. 8th grade students are responsible for their provided lock for their final year at Farnsworth Middle School. At the end of the school year, students will be required to turn in their assigned lock to their homeroom teacher.

● Students who misplace or lose this lock will need to purchase a replacement. We encourage them to purchase a school-issued lock at a cost of $5 at their house office.
● Students must purchase their own lock for the locker they will use in the Physical Education locker room.

Physical Education at FMS
Welcome to Physical Education at FMS. Each student will be assigned a locker in which they should store their clothes/belongings. The following items are needed for physical education class:

● Combination padlock (please, no key locks)
