Upcoming Event: PI Day!




WHEN: Saturday, March 14, 2015, 5:15-8:00pm

DESCRIPTION: On March 14, also known as "PI Day," the students of FEPC are going to play some laser tag! Fill out the parental permission form below and meet us at the FEPC parking lot at 5:15pm. We'll be carpooling over to Laser Quest in Federal Way, where we'll enjoy two games of laser tag and, of course, pie! This is a great event for inviting friends - but we need you to RSVP with the number you plan on bringing to ensure we have enough food and slots for the games. Some frequently asked questions are posted below.


1) Where should we meet, and when?

All students should meet at the FEPC front parking lot at 5:15pm on the 14th. We will be carpooling to Federal Way, and want to save time to negotiate traffic. If you're late, you'll need to find your own ride over.

 2) Do you need help with carpooling?

We'd love to have parents help carpool for the event. If you're interested, just let me know by replying to this email?

 3) Is there a cost for the event?

To cover the cost of both laser tag (2 games) and pie, we're asking for 15 dollars per student. However, if you're inviting first-time friends and you believe the cost would be out of reach for them financially, consider them our guests for the evening - no cost. If anyone else would like to be considered for a "scholarship," just let me know privately.

 4) What forms do I need to fill out?

Everyone (including guests) needs a signed parental permission form, which is attached below. You can bring this the night of, but you STILL NEED TO RSVP in advance. Thanks!

 5) Are we going to have a Pie in the face contest?

Probably, but it won't be mandatory for the squeamish.

 6) Should I RSVP in advance?

Really glad you asked! You should absolutely without fail RSVP in advance.
