What if I told you that there was an easy way to increase communication between home and school, develop better family cohesion, and improve community relationships? Would you take advantage of this opportunity?

If you said yes, consider signing up for F.A.S.T., or Families and Students Together. This program is facilitated by trained Mineral Point School District faculty. The purpose is to help students and families building strong, supportive relationships in all areas. We will be running another nine-week session for interested PreK-6 families.

Here are the reported findings from families that participated in the fall F.A.S.T. session:

  • 89% of Mineral Point parents reported having a better relationship with their child
  • 78% of Mineral Point parents feel their family is more cohesive after completing the program
  • 89% of Mineral Point parents reported improvement in community relationships
  • 57% of Mineral Point parents reported being more involved in their child’s education

The upcoming F.A.S.T. session will begin on March 13. Families will meet on Tuesdays from 5:00 to 7:30 P.M. at the high school. Participants will receive a weekly free meal, one door prize, onsite childcare, fun family time, special parent-child playtime, and an opportunity to network with other parents. To be clear, F.A.S.T. is open to all Mineral Point families.

If you would like to sign up for the spring session, or if you have questions, please contact our school counselor Carla Rand at 608-987-0739 ext 115 or at carla.rand@mp.k12.wi.us. You can also reach out to Paula Schuette, parent partner, at paula.schuette@gmail.com.
