FMS Welcomes Visitors From Germany
High school students from Ingolstadt, Germany, visited FMS.  These students are part of an exchange program with Springfield High School.  The German students taught FMS students a bit about their culture and language.  FMS students had fun interacting with our visitors and even taught them some of their own “teenage” language (current expressions).  High school students from Ingolstadt, Germany, visited FMS.
