“Our school is on the path to becoming a school of excellence and our students need your help. A significant number of our students are economically disadvantaged and need support and you can help by providing them with opportunities to prepare them for success.” said Nick Little, team leader and project manager for Leadership Notebooks at FPS.

“In an effort to prepare our students for 21st century career and college readiness skills, they need the proper tools.” - Nick Little

The school's mission is to inspire and develop leaders one student at a time. To accomplish that mission, they have adopted Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Little believes that by instilling these timeless principles in their students, they will be providing them with lifelong tools to build a strong character and work ethic.

Little's Project

“One of the key tools required to help accomplish the school's mission is to provide each of the students with Leadership Notebooks where they will keep track of their personal and academic goals, data, service learning, reflections, and successes.” said Little. “Our school struggles with meeting basic classroom supplies and needs; therefore, the importance of this notebook will support not only our school's mission, but will also help our educational initiatives to bring out the leader in each of our students.“

Making a monetary donation will result in the purchase of these notebooks for each and every student in Fitzhugh Park School.

“Students learn to push their abilities, to be accountable for their actions and to lead their lives to greater aspirations, according to Little. “I have seen the impact this organization has had on my class- I can only imagine the effect it will have on over 400 students.”

Local partnerships that have already stepped up and represented our schools through generous donations are:, Oswego Supply, J.P Jewelers, (an FPS Alumni) David Newson, and many local and national community members.

“Our entire school staff is committed to succeeding in meeting the needs of our students.” - Nick Little
