Ultimate Family Playdate

Ultimate Family Playdate

The Ultimate Family Playdate (UFP) is a yearly event to welcome new Preschool and Kindergarten families as well as to celebrate friendships for all current Preschool and Kindergarten families. The UFP is also an introduction to FXW’s unique mission of creating a diverse community through scholarships. All proceeds from the UFP go to the Children at the Crossroads Foundation which provides scholarships to 30% of FXW’s students.

Children at the Crossroads (CATC) Foundation was created in 1990 on the belief that economic circumstances should not preclude an eager and capable child from receiving a quality education. CATC supports the needs of financially disadvantaged children and provides them with a foundation for life that they might not otherwise be able to obtain.

So, Preschool and Kindergarten families, mark your calendar and join new and fellow Jaguars for a day of Friendship, Food, and “Fun-raising” – Saturday, April 28th from 10am – 1pm in the FXW OSP Gym.
