Families:

All parent(s)/legal guardian(s), teachers, and certified staff are members of the PTO. Members are encouraged to attend monthly PTO meetings. These meetings provide an excellent forum to stay up to date with school functions, including but not limited to, curriculum policy, current events, and activities. It also provides members the opportunity to voice their ideas, support and concerns while taking an active role in our children’s future. All meetings are held in the gymnasium on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

Curriculum at FCA is rigorous and sequential. Math is taught with foundational skills that build upon one another throughout the year. All students at FCA learn math on an “advanced” timetable. Reading programs focus on phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and text comprehension. The writing program at the school includes a focus on spelling, grammar, and handwriting, as well as vivid self-expression. Students also have regular music, art, and P.E. classes.
