Special Events

  • Fayette County Public Schools coordinates several programs and districtwide events to salute student and staff accomplishments.


    School board recognitions / on hold during pandemic

    At each month's school board action meeting, FCPS congratulates students and employees who have received awards or placed highly in state or national competitions. Honorees are announced near the beginning of the meeting, receive medals or other keepsakes, and shake hands with the superintendent and school board members. In addition, their photos are added to a school board webpage under "student/staff recognitions"


    FAME Awards / on hold during pandemic

    Graduating seniors are encouraged to nominate a favorite teacher, counselor, coach, or mentor who has made a significant difference in their lives. Student-teacher pairs, selected on the strength of the essay submissions, are recognized at a winter program honoring the impact that educators can have on the students they serve.


    Calendar Art Competition / on hold during pandemic

    Schools' art teachers may submit original student artwork for consideration in the district's calendar and family handbook. The entries are featured at a spring reception and gallery showing downtown, and a panel of community judges selects the 14 pieces to appear in the following school year's calendar. In addition, all the entries are displayed throughout central office during the coming year. 


    Retirement celebration / on hold during pandemic

    FCPS employees who are retiring are treated to a May dinner and celebration. Others may purchase tickets to attend; call (859) 381-4794.
