One of the things we've tried to increase over the last year is student input and communication. As we exist to serve students, it's important to hear from them in their own voices.
I present for you, the Spring 2016 MNFPSP Student Newsletter. This was done entirely by students -- Solveig, Nina, and Mina. If you're an MNFPSP student and you want to contribute -- please see the end of the newsletter for whom to contact.
Students, as you see and talk to your peers at IC, be sure to point them at this newsletter and ask them if they're doing anything similar, so that we can highlight other students' peer communications too.
Things are going fast and furious before IC... Here are two last bits of interest for Parents and Coaches.
First: A short newsletter from MNFPSP about FPS Summer Camps in Minnesota! Who would've thought?
Second: The 04-05 2016 Parent Perspectives newsletter from the International Office.
Both of these are linked in the menu above as well.
For some time, Cheryl / MNFPSP has mentored a program in Israel. This year, they had three schools at their Affiliate Final (like our State Bowl). Translations were done in Hebrew and Arabic.

Congratulations to all who participated!
Please check out what the team from Apollo in St. Cloud has been working on -- distracted driving.
They've been in the news... check the links below.
And the Results are In!
A complete breakdown of the day's results.
Congratulations to those invited to the IC -- we hope to see as many of you as possible!
Our thanks goes out to everyone who helped make the day happen -- from coaches to volunteers, to parents and bus drivers (and everyone else that isn't covered by those few categories). It can't happen without you and we appreciate what you do for MNFPSP and its participants.
Lastly, thanks to our hosts at Centennial Middle School in Lino Lakes.
Congrats to the Community Problem Solvers of Grandview Middle School in the Westonka Public Schools! They're addressing the topic of teen homelessness head-on and met with Representative Cindy Pugh at the Capitol in St. Paul. Congrats all around!
Please congratulate Christopher Meng, from Centennial Middle School on this excellent recognition!
