Community Partnerships

January 26, 2024

Dear Clipper Families,

Falmouth Public Schools is an essential part of a community that celebrates its students as tomorrow's citizens and leaders. Nurturing partnerships helps us sustain a safe and supportive learning culture, so students meet with success as Clippers.

Our partnerships aim to increase students’ awareness of the range of programs, careers, and continued learning needed to thrive within this community, engage with the global community, and understand their influence on the world. In many of our partnerships, our work focuses on environmental stewardship and scientific literacy. Others have a stronger focus on culture. 

Key to our partnerships is creating interactive hands-on learning opportunities both within our schools and classrooms as well as by turning Falmouth coastlines and other local habitats into our living classrooms.

I also want to give a shout-out to our fabulous Falmouth Education Foundation (FEF) who provides so many grants to make our partnership activities possible. Both staff and students can apply for grants to bring their ideas to life.

Today, we want to share a few stories about how our Falmouth community partners make a difference in the lives of our Clippers! Please visit our Partnerships website for three examples and an overview of all our partnerships.

The Clipper Experience includes our commitment to unique and engaging experiences for every student pursuing an excellent academic school experience.
