Milo the Muskox is an avid reader

Unlike other members of his Bovidae family, Milo is a bookworm and we're looking for interesting material to keep his curiosity piqued! Do you have curriculum or books to add to our lending library?


Drop them off at the front desk and we'll add them to our collection for our families!

· Remind her that she's doing great work.

Sponsor Teacher Spotlight

Our Sponsor Teacher Kjirsten Langland;

Alaska is home and I am homegrown! Born and educated in Anchorage, I graduated from West Anchorage High School. I attended the University of San Diego and graduated with a degree in Diversified Liberal Arts and my teaching credential. I am "Highly Qualified" to teach K-8th grades and have taught with the Anchorage School District since 1997.


I am a mom of 3 kids that I adore and we, along with my hubby, love to ski, hike, fly, travel and enjoy all that is Alaska.


I am honored to be a part of the Family Partnership Charter School Family. I love working with our FPCS families to help them determine the best ways to educate their children while discovering how fun learning can be. Welcome to FPCS!
