You can find the entire hot lunch and smoothie schedule with the menus and booster that is sponsoring that lunch on the 157c website.

Volunteer Opportunities

First of all, THANK YOU to all who volunteer to help our schools and the Family School Partnership. Caring adults have an important and lasting impact on children's lives and educations, and we're lucky to have so many caring adults in our schools!

Volunteers for Exploration Night - Space, Coming Thursday, January 26th, 2017

We will need many volunteers to help the families attending this 157C Family Night. If you could give 90 minutes of your time to help run a station it will make the night so much better. Please take a look at the Sign Up Genius link to see where we need the help.

About 157-c Family School Partnership (FSP)

We are the 157c Parent Teacher Organization. We are non-profit. We provide free family events as well as parent support, teacher appreciation, assembly funds, and curriculum enrichment. All parents with students in 157c are encouraged to help us. We can only do as much as we can with the volunteers that help. If you prefer not to support our fundraisers you can always support us by donating to our un-fundraiser. You can do this via Rev-Trak under FSP.

FSP meets monthly on the first Tuesday.
