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

Goal Setting - A Family Event! by Mr D Math



Goal setting is often thought of as a great idea and something everyone needs to do but we rarely do it and when we do, we usually lose track of the goal along the way. In this workshop, goals are brought to life through creation and conversation. Everyone participating will create a goal and a visual display for that goal during the workshop. This process can be done with family members over and over again as well as with other homeschool groups as activities.
