Helping your child succeed has never been easier!

When: Wednesdays 9:30-1:00

WIN stands for "What I Need," and is a highly individualized time in the day for students in grades K through 9 during which students get extra help, extensions or enrichment. FFPCS is launching a new program designed to provide specific and targeted individualized instructional support for students. Teachers will be available to provide enrichment, interventions, and extend curriculum utilizing an array of resources.

Parents can come to learn how to use these programs at home. Or, come and learn about resources to support students in math or reading. This service is FREE to our students and FULFILLS the 9 HR Certified Teacher Contact requirement.

We can accommodate up to 20 students at a time, so you may drop in anytime. Students may stay for up to one hour.
