Frankfort Family School Partnership (FSP)
The FSP, (formerly the Frankfort PTA) has been working on behalf of District 157-C school and students for over fifty years. The FSP works through committees and volunteers to enrich the education of the children in our schools, and makes several monetary contributions to the schools. The mission of the FSP is to bring families into the school experience through volunteer opportunities and family fun events. It is our hope that no matter what your interest or schedule, there is a committee or event that may interest you. If you are able to volunteer this year and would like more information please contact one of our executive board members.
