September FYI Newsletter
Program Information and Hours: During the school year the Youth Center is a safe and secure drop-in program; you can relax with friends, play ping-pong or pool, watch TV, read and do homework, play PS4 games, and utilize the large computer lab. Daily hours throughout the school year are: Monday – Friday, 2:00pm – 7:00pm. During the summer we hosted our annual Summer Camp during the hours of 8:00am-5:30pm. The Youth Center is closed on Saturday & Sunday.
Director’s Message: School got off to a great start this year until Dorian decided to make an appearance. I hope everyone made it through the storm safely and with little damage. The Youth Center will resume normal operating hours this Friday, September 6. Students are reminded to be at the Youth Center before 2:30 and to have their ID for entrance. Any student arriving to the Youth Center after 2:30 will be required to show a pass signed by a teacher or coach and students are not permitted to be on FPC’s campus unsupervised after 2:30.
Student Advisory Council: The SAC will meet on Monday September 9 and Thursday September 12 this month. Any student wishing to join needs to contact Mr. Butler via email at [email protected]
