Community Service/Internships

This is a new committee for us. We’re hoping to utilize the greater  community of FMHS parents and friends to develop a rich network of community service opportunities for our kids. If you have a suggestion, send it to info@frankmccourthpta.org.

Learn to Code

Our next workshop will be Saturday, November 21st, Sunday, November 22nd, and Saturday, December 5th.
