Updated tentative 6th-12th grade schedules are available in FACTS Family Portal. Please go to FACTS Family Portal to check your child’s schedule to be sure that the schedule is complete. If your high school student would like to make a change or update to their schedule (or have a class missing from their schedule), please complete the form found at the following link: https://bit.ly/electives-FCS. In the 7th-12th grades, if there is not a schedule listed, please visit the following link https://bit.ly/Wickert-meeting to set up a time to meet with Miss Wickert. Paper copies of schedules will be available on the day of class retreat (August 10th and 11th).

iPad Distribution

This year all of our students will be using iPads! Elementary students' iPads will stay at school and be used in the classroom. MIddle School and High School students' iPads will be issued at the start of school. High Students will have iPad Air devices. These devices have a keyboard, and students are allowed to purchase their own stylus (one like this works fine https://a.co/d/4rVKfOH) or apple pencil (1st generation for Middle School, 2nd generation for High School), but this is not required. We believe that more control of these devices will be in your hands as parents through the use of a program called Securly. More information will be available at parent orientation. Please read through this iPad policy handbook, https://bit.ly/FCShandbook2022, and complete the agreement form for each student, which can be found at https://bit.ly/FCS-iPad-22. If you have questions, you can contact your student's principal or our Tech Coach, Kevin Kelso, kkelso@faithlafayette.org.

Parent Orientation Night

We have changed our Parent Orientation format this year! Parent orientation for all grades (K5-11th) will be on August 9 starting at 6:00 PM. More info on the schedule for this orientation will be included in the July Newsletter.

Carpool Opportunities

Some families have contacted us about the possibility of a carpool. Carpool could not only be a need for a ride for your student(s) to or from school, but even offering a space in your vehicle to take a student(s) to or from school. Please fill out the information at https://bit.ly/FCScarpool and we will get information to you of those who are also interested in a carpool option this school year.

Summer Camps

Fine Arts Academy

The FCS Fine Arts Academy features week-long summer programs in painting, percussion, music production, instrument studies, and piano basics. These interactive workshops and camps bring focused and fun learning to students in the community throughout the summer. For more information, or to register, check the Fine Arts Academy page.

Summer Sports Camps

FCS Summer Sports camps teach fundamental skills to young, upcoming athletes. These camps will also provide an opportunity for parents to benefit from various teaching techniques that will aid in the development of their child. These camps are not intended to be a week of conditioning, but rather a fun week of instruction through demonstration and practice. For more information, or to register, check the Summer Youth Sports Camps page.
