2018-19 Goals

Team Fairwood - Together Everyone Achieves More. We are not a team because we work together as teacher, students and parents. We are a team because we respect, trust, and care for each other. 

Advocacy - The PTSA will send the total amount of voting delegates allotted to Legislative Assembly on October 20 and 21 at Green River College.

Family Engagement - The PTSA will survey parents and students on how the PTSA can help students succeed; using survey results the PTSA will plan an event or program.

Fundraising - The PTSA will simplify their fundraising efforts by holding 2 main fundraisers (Fall and Spring) to fund general PTSA programs, events, donations, and committees. Fall fundraiser will be a donation drive with goal of $7,500. Spring will be an auction with goal of $30,000. The PTSA will maintain a 6th grade camp fundraising committee having 6th grade students involved in planning and volunteering to bring down the cost of 6th grade camp for students.

Communication - The PTSA will keep the Fairwood community informed with weekly emails of calendar events, current articles on PTSA website and Tuesday packet flyers.

School Support - The PTSA will have a representative at monthly School Improvement Meetings. The PTSA will support teachers and students by posting teacher wish lists on the PTSA website for easy access to community.

2017-18 Goals

Our PTSA Theme this year is "Fully Charged"! We want every program, event, volunteer and member to know that we are committed to our mission fully and with great enthusiasm. To embody our theme, we have the following goals for the 2017-18 school year.

Family Engagement- Community Connection- The PTSA will be involved in a local neighborhood event and invite the local neighborhood to a PTSA event or program.
