  • The Obi Family

    My family and I were very excited when our child was accepted into the Farmington Community School (FCS). We received a visit from both of his teachers before school started. This was great because our child got to familiarize himself with his teachers and vice versa. Having the ability to ask his teachers questions before school started helped to lessen first day of school jitters. The atmosphere at the school is...(Click name to read more.)
