The Fox Creek Promise Council (FCPC) believes that children deserve the opportunity to succeed. We know that every child has a better chance to succeed when the following promises are met:
- Caring Adults
- Safe Places
- Healthy start
- Effective education
- Opportunities to help others
We know that each school is a unique community whose students and families have unique needs. In cooperation with school leaders and community contacts, we have designed the FCPC to meet some of the unique needs of Fox Creek students. We are a new group and therefore a “work in progress.” As the school year progresses, we hope to streamline our operation, identify what needs we can and can’t meet, and learn to operate efficiently.
What type of needs could the FCPC meet? Our initial focus is in meeting students’ academic and physical needs. We wish to increase mentoring opportunities and fill those spots with volunteers. We want to provide additional opportunity for parental engagement at the school. We intend to quickly meet the needs of students when they fall within our guidelines to do so.
Who determines those needs? Fox Creek teachers fill out a request form and submit it to School Principal Dennis Larson. A determination is quickly made as to whether or not the request is appropriate for the Promise Council.
How will the FCPC fill needs that are determined to be appropriate? The FCPC will work with individual volunteers and partner organizations across all sectors: businesses, universities, service organizations, faith-based groups, retirees, and health care.
