Website in Progress... we're building a new team

(The website has a few items carrying over from summer. We'll have it more updated in the next few weeks.)

We're building a new team to contribute to the PTSA website content. We have some new people ready to help, and are organizing now. Some of our great folks from the past few years have moved on to other PTSA roles, or away from Fairwood Elementary. This is a great time to join in!

Help from home!: Any one of these is a very manageable task and can stand alone. Training and help are available! Being familiar with some basic word processing, and internet access are all you need to get started.

Contact Linda Bakan at webcontent@fairwoodptsa.org with any questions. The main areas are below. Let me know if anything looks interesting to you!

  • post items to the online CALENDAR
  • coordinate the VOLUNTEER DASHBOARD on the website
  • help edit & post PTSA event and program ANNOUNCEMENTS (that other people write)
  • update/ create & post HOME PAGE BANNER SLIDES
  • update/ create ONLINE ORDERING ‘PACKETS’ (membership, fun run, etc.)

Battle of the Books!

 Do you have a 4th, 5th or 6th grader? The "Battle of the Books" is a reading incentive program that students participate in across the country. Find out more about the district sponsored program HERE. In the Fall, our school librarian Mrs. Keiser will discuss more about this program. January is when the teams will be finalized. In May the Battle of the Books begins!

This year Fairwood competed in the district competition along with 27 other schools and achieved 1st place! Congratulations to Fairwood's Battle of the Books school champions - B.O.O.K. (Best of Our Knowledge) Readers -and now DISTRICT CHAMPIONS! You represented Fairwood well with your positive attitudes, hard work, and sportsmanship!

Check out the Fairwood Battle of the Books blog for the 2019-20 book list, schedule of meetings and some tips/hints.

We are looking for parent volunteers! Please email Sheena Keiser (Fairwood Librarian) for more information.
