Message from the APC's Chairman
I wanted to reach out to all the parents of FPCS to let you know the APC had an unanticipated APC parent seat open up. There is one year remaining on this seat until it is up for re-election (May 31, 2022).
If you are interested in serving on the APC board and would like to be considered for this open seat, please fill out the application form below and email it to me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be reviewed and discussed at the meeting next Monday, August 9th at 5:30pm at FPCS. If you wish to apply, you are encouraged to attend so the APC board can meet you and ask any questions they may have.
This election process is a little different than the previous elections as it will be decided by a majority vote of the APC members.
Thank you for considering serving in this role. If you have any questions, please send me an email.
FPCS APC Chairman

Goal setting is often thought of as a great idea and something everyone needs to do but we rarely do it and when we do, we usually lose track of the goal along the way. In this workshop, goals are brought to life through creation and conversation. Everyone participating will create a goal and a visual display for that goal during the workshop. This process can be done with family members over and over again as well as with other homeschool groups as activities.
Wednesday, August 25 at 9:00 am
Learn about this secular, Charlotte Mason inspired literature-based homeschool curriculum that includes rich literature, history, art and science for grades K-12.

Sign up for an Enrichment Class!
Sign up for enrichment classes started Monday, August 2nd in the OLS.
- Enrichments Webpage
- If a student has the enrichment class added in their OLS, they have a spot. There is no confirmation email and you probably won't hear from our enrichment teacher, Bethany, until about a week before the class starts.
- If you try to add an enrichment and the OLS won't allow it, the class is either:
- full (you can see how many seats are left when adding an enrichment) or
- they are in a higher or lower grade than the class is set up for. For example, if they are a 3rd grader and want to take a class for 4th-8th graders, they won't be able to add the class. In this case, you can contact Bethany to find out if she can make an exception. Her email is email@example.com
If an enrichment is full, here is a Google form to be placed on a waitlist: https://forms.gle/NRGLnSStFK3Vyddp8
