We will kick off the school year with our Crusader Party presented by Holiday Potpourri on Saturday, August 17, at the home of Kerk and Liz Mehrle (see details below). Then, save the date of Friday, October 25, for Holiday Potpourri 2019! 

FPDS’s only fundraiser, Holiday Potpourri generates more than $200,000 annually for educational and extra-curricular improvements to our school without raising tuition. Sponsors, parents, and volunteers come together for this half-day event consisting of a home and garden showcase, Bountiful Bakery, Garden & Gift Gallery, Silent Auction, Tasting Tea, musical performances by our own talented students, and much more.
