Peer Leadership Corps
Peer Leadership Corps (PLC) represents every student in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade who wants to help make a difference in our community. The PLC will host dozens of drives, fundraisers, events, and dances throughout the school year. Each and every 6th, 7th, and 8th grade student is welcome and encouraged to attend! Everything we do helps those in need in our town, county, state, country, and even world. Every week there's an event you can attend, sign up for, or help out with. FAMS Community on your Gmail Forums tab will always detail each and every event. Participate today!

What's coming up next?
As you may know, each year schools celebrate the “100th” Day of School. This year, in partnership with “Connect for Community,” the PLC would like to use this day to show our children what 100 cents can buy.
“Connect for Community” is a program started by a small group of volunteers to help supplement donations to our local food pantries. The children’s donations will help stretch the limited dollars available, which means that together, we can provide local food pantries with more non-edible essentials such as toiletries and hygiene products for the members of our community who need it most. Many of these items such as soap, toothpaste and toilet paper, are not covered by food stamps yet they are all necessities in life. Since the program began in 2010, students have donated nearly 57,000 items!
We are asking each child to bring in one item of something we use every day, with a cost of $1.00 or less. Each grade level will bring in a different item, as listed below. On Friday February 15, during the week of 100th Day of School, we will distribute the donations to over 40 food pantries and social service agencies over the course of the upcoming year. Thank you for your donations!
