Family and Community Engagement Conference:

FACEing the Future Together

Saturday, October 20, 2018
8:00 am – 3:30 pm
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology

FCCPTA in partnership with FCPS Family and School Partnerships seeks to foster increased interaction between parents, students, educators, school administrators, education advocates, business and community leaders to foster interaction and address issues that are vital to academic success and the well being of our children.


Family and community engagement (FACE) is at the center of everything that PTAs accomplish. The goals of family and community engagement are for each and every child and family in a community to feel as though they are part of a PTA family, and for that PTA family to be an active part of the community in which it resides.


We invite you to join us for a day of focused learning and information-sharing around family and community engagement.
