Forest Acres PTO 2016-2017

Please visit the FAE PTO Facebook site for the most up to date information.

If you've already joined the PTO thank you for your support of our organization. If you have not already joined, please consider joining. Every member makes a difference, whether it is through their volunteer time, their interest in the PTO or their contributions of ideas and support at meetings and events. To join please come to one of our meetings.

Our PTO president for 2016 - 17 is Mrs. Denni Alexander. She is dedicated to her position and has a strong conviction to this endeavor. The PTO Board Members have already been working diligently this summer to ensure that our parents and students will receive the maximum amount of benefits that the PTO can offer. Here are some of the benefits that are afforded parents and students from the PTO:

  • Provides Teacher Start-Up Funds

  • Provides Student Agendas for every child

  • Provides supplemental funds to the Related Arts Departments (Library books, Artist in Residence, etc.)

  • Provides Poster Machine Supplies

  • Provides Parent Hospitality Events 

  • Organizes and Manages Grade Parent Volunteers

  • Decorates school for children

  • Provides supplemental funds for school and teacher needs

  • Provides lunch for Teacher of the Year/Support Person

  • Teacher Appreciation Week & Staff Appreciation 

These are only several of the financial obligations that the PTO commits to our school every year that have a combined expense of over $40,000! Some of these funds are actually spent before our school year even begins. The PTO organizes several fund raising projects throughout the year and work voluntarily in order to raise the funds to supply you, the teachers and our students with these benefits. I would like to encourage all of you to take advantage of becoming a member of our PTO.

The new PTO Board wants your involvement! They believe that your input regarding the school needs as well as your child's needs at Forest Acres is invaluable. 

Please continue to support the PTO by attending our meetings. These will be announced as the dates are set. 

Please volunteer in the classrooms, during our fund raisers and any other time you can help. In order to volunteer you must attend one of the volunteer trainings that are available. Training is available at Forest Acres. Please see the calendar of events below. You can find additional scheduled training at the following link...

Volunteer Information

Please be sure that when you do volunteer, you sign in and especially also sign out or our school will get no credit for your volunteer time. Our school is recognized based on the number of volunteer hours you spend.

The Forest Acres PTO raises funds throughout the year for various projects. Some items on tap for this year are teacher start up funds, new playground equipment, additional books for the library, as well as other items to be determined later. The volume of the projects depends on the amount we can raise through activities and fund raising programs.

 
Thank you for your interest and your support. We look forward to working with you! For more information please feel free to contact Denni Alexander, President, via e-mail at forestacrespto@gmail.com .
 

Sincerely,

The FAE PTO Officers
