FCS Archive

The FCS Archives preserves & maintains a wide range of historic materials such as board minutes, school yearbooks, and a/v recording. While serving the public as a repository for these historical collections, the FCS Archives, in partnership with the Teaching Museum, is creating classroom resources from these artifacts so that students can learn firsthand how various events in history impacted our school system and communities.​
