Message from the APC's Chairman

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to reach out to all the parents of FPCS to let you know the APC had a parent seat open up. This is a two year seat, up for re-election (May 31, 2023).

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 by August 24, 2021 at shad.schoppert@gmail.com.

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.

Shad Schoppert

FPCS APC Chairman
