No one can do everything, but everyone can do something; and we want to express our appreciation for every “something”.

The Board of Directors appreciates that you have joined the FMPSD in doing what is best for children. Thank you to each of our valued partners for your contribution to the FMPSD. You are an integral part of our mission to be a learning community educating all students for personal excellence, ”noted President Mywaart.

“Each partner contributes to programs and projects that benefit our students, and we thank you all. Partners support academic, artistic, cultural, nutritional and athletic programs to name a few. This is done by donating time, services or goods. Our students would not be so successful without your generous support. Thank you for your commitment to doing what’s best for children.
