What Fairmont PTA Is About

The Fairmont PTA works hard to improve the school for every student and family. With the cooperation of teachers, staff and families, PTA volunteers have worked tirelessly to:

  • Provide the school with educational events such as Family Reading Night and Family Math Night, as well as assemblies
  • Provide fun activities that also foster family involvement, such as Board Game Night, Family Fun Night and Friendship Dances
  • Improve the appearance of the school. We have transformed an unused plot of land into an edible garden in the past three years. In Spring of 2009, we sponsored the creation of a mural in the kindergarten yard, titled “Growing Minds”
  • Foster healthy habits among our students and families. Last year, we organized a Walk-to-School Day, which we will expand to a Walk-to-School campaign this year
  • Support teachers by providing them allocations to pay for classroom supplies and field trips
  • Financially support Music and Science programs, and have supported the PlayWorks program at Fairmont.
  • Help support and coordinate the Fifth Grade Overnight field trip to Pt. Bonita.

Becoming a member shows your family that school is important and you want the school to be successful. This can translate into greater achievement by your student.
