Team-Building Takes Practice

Earlier this week, I happened upon a group of students eating lunch and informally discussing different kinds of families. I was struck by how respectful the children were of each other. Listening to the news on the way home underscored how much adults in our society could learn from a day at FCS!
FCS teaches children to question, yet to respect others and to accept differences; to see things from many points of view; to find common ground; and to grow into understanding. These are 21st-century skills and strengths. They take time and skill to teach.

In a couple of weeks, you will receive a request for your participation in the Annual Giving Fund (AGF). The AGF helps fund the cost of FCS's kind of 21st-century education, which, not surprisingly, tuition does not fully cover. FCS chooses to keep tuition as affordable as possible and to fundraise to help fill the gap. We invite you to participate to the best of your ability, to support FCS and our special learning community.
