Flagler FPS Flamingo Flocking
At the 2017 Florida Future Problem Solving Program State Competition, students from six different Flagler County schools (FPC, Bunnell, Rymfire, Old Kings, Buddy Taylor & Indian Trails) came home with 234 ribbons and trophies, including fifty-one (51) International Conference invitations. This gives Flagler County schools a total of 63 students & coaches that will be traveling to International Conference this summer at the University of Wisconsin/La Crosse!
Our goal for this GoFundMe funding request is to get as many of our eligible students to the International Competition in Ames, Iowa this summer as possible. School district policy does not allow for student and coach expenses for international competitions to come out of the district’s general fund, so fundraising is a critical issue for the FPS students, families and coaches.
The more funds this group can raise, the less it will cost each student out of their family’s pocket. We started the Flamingo Flocking fundraiser as one way to raise funds for the international competition. FPS of Flagler County is accepting the following donations:
$40 for a large flamingo flock (24 birds)
$20 for Anti-flocking insurance (make sure you don’t get flocked)
$100 Community Partner level donation and name on t-shirt
$500 Corporate level donation and name on t-shirt and front page graphic/link on FlaglerFPS.com website
Simply visit http://www.flaglerfps.com/flamingo-flocking/ to fill out the flocking order form, and then place your donation on this GoFundMe site.
Thank you again for visiting, and please consider a donation or sponsorship. Our school district leaders and community are very proud of our students and coaches and their accomplishments. We want to give them an opportunity to compete against the very best competition from around the world this summer!
What is FPS?
Future Problem Solving is an educational program that focuses on solving global and local community issues. It stimulates critical and creative thinking skills and encourages students to develop a vision for the future. The FPS Program features competitive as well as non-competitive activities in creative problem solving. Future Problem Solving Program International involves over 250,000 students annually from over 40 affiliates in the United States and 12 other countries.
Participants develop skills of teamwork, communication, research, critical and creative thinking, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. They learn to apply these skills to situations that are futuristic, but oriented to real life. The competitive aspects of FPS are fun and the students learn a problem solving process that can be used for the rest of their lives. This is the reason that teachers, parents and students fall in love with the program and continue to stay involved with it for many years.
