Florence Carlton Parent Organization K-8 grade (FCPO). We are a 501c3, parent association of involved parents, grandparents, and caregivers, working to provide support to our children and their Teachers, in the form of activities and much-needed supplies and equipment which the school's budget is unable to cover.
FCPO supports Kindergarten-8th grade students and staff by having several fundraising opportunities each year to be able to help offset costs associated with K-5 students/parents events, support during Parent Teacher Conferences (2 per year), Teacher Appreciation Week, 8th grade promotion/ceremony and dance and so much more. We also use funds to purchase new elementary school and middle school classroom supplies or other school equipment such as bookcases, bulletin boards, science labs, etc. that the school budget is unable to cover each year. Middle sschool extra-circular activities are also in need of much needed funds for the middle school football. volleyball, basketball and track uniforms and equipment.
If you have an elementary and/or middle-schooler at Florence-Carlton, please consider volunteering some of your time and/or resources to help the FCPO, FCS school and community create a safe, respectful environment which strives to prepare all students to become responsible, life-long learners by empowering them with the integrity, knowledge and skills to contribute to a changing world. 2019-2020 is also the year where our current President will be stepping down as she has served three years in a row. We encourage parents to take a chance and be open to this incredible opportunity to serve the FCS students and staff. Every member of the committee all took a chance years ago and have all been extremely happy to join this incredible group. Be on the lookout for the election information during the second part of the school year.
Monthly meetings are held during the school year. Every second Monday of the month at 6pm in High School Teachers lounge.
