Program provides community members, students, families, staff members, and donors a way to recognize FPS staff members with a tax deductible contribution. During the month of May, the recipient will receive a Certificate of Appreciation customized with your name and the name of the staff member(s) being “Applauded” and what makes the honoree(s) so special.
