Did you know that there is more to the FHPS school district than just school buildings? The district also has additional services for the entire community. One particular department is called Community Services. Community Services has offices in the FHPS aquatic center building and they coordinate programming for all ages in the following areas: youth enrichment, middle school sports, adult enrichment, senior enrichment, and aquatic programs. Last year, their programming served over 25,000 participants. Here are some additional details from last school year about our Community Services programs.
