We are fortunate to have such a creative and diverse community. Ideas for new stewardship projects should be submitted via the FCDS Project Proposal Form (make this underline a link to the form). Please understand that the school has many wonderful existing programs so we can only implement a limited number of new projects each year. The project should meet the following objectives: Active participation of students in the project. Project relates to the curriculum, mission statement, and honor code of the school. Minimize the requests for funds. All applications will be reviewed by the committee liaison and the School Administration.
