The Fonseca School is proud to announce our partnership with People, Incorporated.  As part of the partnership there will be a food pantry every Thursday in the Fonseca School Community Room from 3:15 to 5:15 PM. 

A Family Support Advocate will be at Fonseca on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 - 11:00 AM and by appointment. If you have any questions please call, Joshua Amaral, Community Center Coordinator, 774-627-2531.

The empty chair is a symbol that stresses the importance of attendance and the fact that a teacher cannot teach an empty chair.  Let's work together to ensure that the children at Fonseca are in their seat every day!
