    Congratulations to those invited to the IC -- we hope to see as many of you as possible!

    Our thanks goes out to everyone who helped make the day happen -- from coaches to volunteers, to parents and bus drivers (and everyone else that isn't covered by those few categories).  It can't happen without you and we appreciate what you do for MNFPSP and its participants.

  • Spring 2016 Student Newsletter

    Hello everyone,

    One of the things we've tried to increase over the last year is student input and communication.   As we exist to serve students, it's important to hear from them in their own voices.

    I present for you, the Spring 2016 MNFPSP Student Newsletter.    This was done entirely by students -- Solveig, Nina, and Mina.   If you're an MNFPSP student and you want to contribute -- please see the end of the newsletter for whom to contact.

    Students, as you see and talk to your peers at IC, be sure to point them at this newsletter and ask them if they're doing anything similar, so that we can highlight other students' peer communications too.
