  • Will you be returning to Family Partnership for the 2016-17 school year?
  • Want to avoid filling out all the fall registration paperwork?
  • Want to get a jump start in planning next year's ILP's
  • Are you wanting to sign your student(s) up for Crosspoint Classes before they fill up?
  • Are you hoping to reserve your slot with your current sponsor teacher?


For your convenience, the online registration window for returning students has been extended to cover the entire month of May. The process takes just a few minutes per student and while we love it when you visit the office, registering online could save you a lot of time, energy, gas, and stress.


Online Registration (through Zangle Parent Connect)

Hardcopy Paperwork (download, print, fill out, sign, and submit to the office)


New-to-district students or students moving over the summer will still need to apply for a slot through the online lottery and register in-person at our office.

GRADUATION

Tuesday, May 17: FPCS Graduation!


Arrive by 6:40 if you want to see the slide show of the graduates before the ceremony. There is unlimited seating - so everyone from FPCS is invited. For underclassmen, this is a great opportunity to see what your graduation will be like.


The ceremony begins at 7:00. We try to be done by 8:15 or 8:30 and then we have a big reception in the lobby.

All are welcome to stay and eat finger foods and cake/cupcakes.


Don't miss the party where we celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2016!

ESSENTIAL INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES

SNOW GLOBE

Students are given an outline of a snow globe or asked to draw one on a blank piece of paper. Students are then asked to draw symbols or figures (can also use some words) to capture the essence of the concept or story. For example, students might create a snow globe of photosynthesis, a constitutional amendment, the scientific method, or the Three Little Pigs. This activity can be done in a group or individually.
