FAQ’s

What exactly does the FPA do?

The FPA is a group of volunteers that run a myriad of events throughout the school year to enhance the education of our children.

Which programs does the FPA sponsor?

We sponsor the annual Yom Haatzmaut BBQ, Chanukah gifts to our faculty, The Frisch Book Club and our monthly Lunch and Learn program. We also coordinate our school calendar, and run a full Cougar Spirit Store.

How do the Frisch Students benefit from the FPA?

Students experience an FPA sponsored cultural event supporting the English Curriculum. In honor of their Birthday’s students also receive a special birthday t-shirt courtesy of the FPA. Summer birthdays receive them in June before the end of school.

At Graduation, each students receives a personalized gift courtesy of the FPA.

The FPA also runs an alumni college fair to give our Juniors first hand information from our alumni about life on college campus (click here for College Guidance). We also offer mock interviews by professional volunteers, for students to prepare to interview for internships and college.

Even before students arrive on our beautiful campus, the FPA is integrally involved in the coordination of our main recruitment event, by providing many volunteers to support our Open House in the fall, and giving personal tours to each family as they arrive for their interview (admissions.frisch.org)

How does the FPA help freshmen in their transition to High School?

We assist in the coordination of Freshmen Orientation on the evening before school begins. We also provide a courtesy Brunch titled “When Cubs Become Cougars” to help the families of our freshmen get to know each other and to make a smooth transition into our Frisch Family.

Can I volunteer if I work full time?

ABSOLUTELY. We have many evening and Sunday events and committees that meet outside of school hours. Click here to sign up!
