New Registration Process for 2020-2021

Registration time is here and, this year, it is totally online!! Because registration will be online, the process will be a little different, so please be sure to read the following information carefully...


  • Registration packets will not be sent home. All forms will be filled out and submitted online through the "registration" link on our website firstfaithkids.org. All information must be completed at the time of registration in order to complete the process.
  • The same registration paperwork you submitted in paper form in the past will be the same information filled out and submitted electronically (Registration Form, Financial Agreement Form, current photo of child and registration fee).
  • Registration for current FFP&K families will take place Jan. 27th-30th (Mon-Thurs). It will begin at 10:00am on 1/27 and close on 1/30.
  • Because the process will be online, there will no longer be certain days to submit paperwork. So, regardless of the days your child currently attends FFP&K, or the days you're registering for during the 2020-2021 school year, you can register anytime during Jan. 27th-30th.
  • You will still be able to print the Medical Form and turn it in at a later date. We know many of the students will have well checks during the spring and summer months, so you can still turn in the Medical Form, and your child's immunization record, on or anytime before the first day of school.
  • Please keep in mind, if you would like to register a sibling who is not currently a student at FFP&K, you must wait to register those children during sibling registration on February 3rd.


We realize this is a big change, but it will be so much simpler and more efficient, which is really exciting! More information regarding the registration process will be sent home Monday (1/13) and Tuesday (1/14). If you have any questions, you are welcome to email Amy Strathman at amys@fmcm.org.

Teddy Bear Picnics

On Wednesday, Feb. 12th and Thursday, Feb. 13th students are welcome to bring a favorite stuffed bear or other stuffed animal from home to take with them on a class picnic!! We will provide blankets and a festive Valentine snack for the classes to enjoy! The picnics will take place during morning snack time (so parents, your child will still need to bring a packed lunch on those days). We will attempt to have the picnics outside if it happens to be nice weather. If not, we will picnic inside.


Parents, even though Valentine's Day is not one of our official class party events, many classes opt to do a valentine exchange which is so much fun for the kiddos! If you have questions about class valentines, please talk with your child's teacher. We will also have some fun photo opportunities for you and your children that week!! There will be an area set up in the lobby by the preschool office with lots of cute and silly Valentine props you can use for some fun photos with your children! So dress in your Valentine’s Day best and get ready to SMILE!

First Faith Illness Policy Reminder

Please remember, if your child has symptoms including vomiting, diarrhea, green runny nose, or fever, they should not return to school until they're symptom free for at least 24 hours WITHOUT medication (this includes fever-reducing medications such as Tylenol or Motrin). This helps us stop the spread of illness to others! If your child will be out due to illness, please call the school at 817-473-2785 to notify his/her teachers. Thanks!
