Farmington Schools ‘Adopt a Teacher’ program supports new staff

Farmington Public Schools (FPS) will launch a program during this school year that will support staff members who are new to the district.

“Adopt a Teacher” recognizes that teachers often spend their own money on books and supplies for their students and classrooms. Donations of those items from retiring teachers and staff members would alleviate that burden, especially for teachers who are also new to the profession, and create a self-sustaining program.

Donations from community residents and organizations will also be accepted.

To learn more about the program, contact Kendra Montante at or 248-489-3350.
