Introducing a new Member to our FPCS Family

Our school is growing. With the increased enrollment for the 2016-17 school year we want to make sure that we are able to maintain the highest level of services to our sponsor families and students.


Please help us welcome Mrs. Heather Deberry as our newest Sponsor Teacher.

PEAKS STATE ASSESSMENT

It's spring and that means State Assessments are coming. We recognize that it takes a lot of effort to coordinate schedules and we do appreciate your efforts to get your students to the testing site (ASD Ed. Center on Northern Lights Blvd.). Family Partnership would love to see our participation rates for the State Mandated Assessment (PEAKS) above 95% this year.


In recognition of your efforts to help us put our best foot forward, FPCS will be offering a $200.00 allotment increase to students in grades 3-10 who participate in the all sections of the PEAKS assessment for their grade level for the 2017/18 school year. This will apply only to currently enrolled FPCS students who participate in the assessment. The $200.00 increase will be added to your student's 2017/18 allotment upon re-enrollment.


Your sponsor teacher should be reaching out to you in the next few days to sign your students up for test sessions.


Resources for Parents


Parent Input

Each year the Family Partnership Academic Policy Committee (APC) conducts an annual survey of parents. Our mission is to foster high academic achievement through a partnership with all members of our school community, including our parents.


We know your time is valuable, so we kept the number of survey questions to a minimum (only 9 this year). Your input is valued and greatly appreciated.
