    6 Things We Love About Farmington Public Schools

    As a proud FPS Alumni, you know there are so many things to love about our schools and community. While we enjoy the benefits of a strong public school district every day, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on what makes our schools so special.  If we could write a love letter to the Farmington Public Schools community, here are some of our favorite things that we would praise. The students A school would be nothing without its bright, eager students. We were once students at Farmington schools, and know just how special it is to receive an education here. We’re grateful for the experiences students have shared across the generations. More importantly, we’re excited to see the new opportunities our current students are exploring! The teachers, administrators and staff Teachers are the heart of our schools. They dedicate their careers and their lives to ensuring generations of young students are excited about learning and prepared for adulthood. Staff are critical to ensuring that teachers and students alike are supported in their learning. Administrators make the big decisions that keep our schools and district moving forward. The volunteers Students, teachers and staff have an important job to do, but volunteers help because they want to join our mission. Community service is a central tenet of our district's values and embodies the FPS spirit. We’re so grateful to those who choose to spend their time in classrooms, on campus, on the field and organizing events. So many of our favorite activities could not happen without volunteers!  The teams Who doesn’t love cheering on their favorite teams? Our student-athletes bring us so much pride on and off the field. Whether they are crushing our rivals, making us proud as college athletes or taking their skills all the way to the top of their game, we’re grateful that they represent us so well. Our Alumni We may be biased, but FPS alumni are the best! We’re always so happy to see alumni from across the decades show their continued pride for our schools. Whether it’s planning class reunions or cheering hard at homecoming, our alumni sure know how to show current students the true value of our community. There are so many people, places and events that make our community special. Some of them helped shape our youth, while others arrived later to benefit younger alumni and students. No matter how far you are removed from the halls of Farmington schools, you can still show some love and say thank you for all those wonderful years.

    5 Great Benefits of Mentoring for High School Students

    When you serve as a mentor, you can pass on your knowledge, wisdom and advice to students as they learn and grow. More than that, it also allows you to give back to the educational institution that helped you get to where you are today. It speaks volumes about your character and can even help you grow and develop as a leader and professional. Mentorship is something that’s valuable both ways. More than the good feeling you get from teaching and encouraging someone your junior, that individual is gaining access to a wealth of understanding and experience. Mentees often go on to do big things, thanks in part to the person who took time to be their mentor. They may even go on to become a mentor themselves—creating a legacy of giving back. How mentoring benefits students For students, having a mentor brings with it numerous, long-lasting benefits. Let’s take a look at five ways Farmington students benefit from mentorships: Valuable guidance: Students gain practical, applicable advice that might not be taught in the classroom, which can be applied throughout their personal and future professional lives. They’ll enter college or the job force a leg up on pure classroom learners. Meaningful relationships: Mentorship creates a bond that may benefit everything from professional networking to personal growth—especially at a pivotal time in a high school student’s life. A mentor is a guide for students facing uncertainty in their future and someone on whom they can rely.  Academic support: Mentees get one-on-one attention that helps them to better understand and retain information, while also connecting that knowledge to classroom lessons. They’ll benefit from more focused learning and a stronger grasp on content.  A path forward: Students get a better understanding of real-world expectations and applications, direct from someone who has experienced them firsthand. This necessary dose of reality will shape their understanding of the world outside the classroom. An accessible resource: Mentoring affords students access to a crucial resource for development that’s not hidden behind a financial barrier. For students unable to afford tutoring or those disadvantaged by a lack of available programs, mentoring is an incredibly valuable experience.  For mentors, being able to pass along wisdom to a younger generation is a truly gratifying experience. We invite you to sign up as a volunteer and see for yourself the profound effect mentorship can have on a student.
