The Snack Pack program helps provide food on the weekends for those students who may not have any. Tuesday night we have basketball at the Tex Hanna gym, soccer at the soccer field behind Tex Hanna, softball out at Agnes Howell and baseball at Huber Park.

Lesa â€śMcKenzieâ€ť Murphy signed her letter of intent on Monday on the FPC campus.
She will graduate from Pearland High School in Pearland, TX this spring. She is a second baseman and an outfielder who plays for her high school and a travel team, the Texas Evolution.
â€śI believe that 'Murph' will bring a good presence to the team. She is a left handed hitter who handles the bat well and should add some speed and defensive depth to our team next year,â€ť says head coach, Lucas Grider.
Two other players have committed, but cannot make it to the campus for their signings.
