A note from your PTSA President

Fairfield Woods proposed area A

Fairfield Woods Middle School PTSA – Please Join Us!

Dear Fairfield Woods Community,

Welcome to a new year at Fairfield Woods Middle School! We look forward to starting a fantastic new year with you all, particularly those of you who are brand new to Woods.

As Presidents of the FWMS Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA), we hope that you have received information regarding the on-line Directory and Membership Drive.  We would love to get 100% participation and we encourage everyone to join. The PTSA supports all of the students and staff members at FWMS. Fundraising efforts are used to offer activities for students and families, teacher grants and enhancements to the school, such as the beautiful mural in the main entrance to the school, the benches outside and the new water-bottle filling stations in the school!

This year’s PTA Board is a nice mix of both new and long-time Woods families. We are hoping this can become a trend at FWMS to keep the PTSA healthy and thriving. No commitment is too small, and we need your help to be able to continue to offer the support to this fabulous learning community..

We have one major fundraiser during the year — our Walk-a-thon, which is scheduled for October 5, 2018! Stay tuned to your email blasts and the FWMS PTSA website & Facebook page (Fairfield Woods Middle School Community Group [PTSA sponsored]) for additional information and volunteer opportunities. We are currently soliciting corporate sponsorship for this event. Email us for more information and forms.

There are many opportunities to volunteer, from “one-and-done” activities to more long-term roles, such as committee representatives, book fair, and more! Check out our calendar and volunteer link on the FWMS PTSA website for more information about upcoming events and opportunities.

We look forward to meeting you at one of the upcoming Open Houses (September 12 for grade 6 & September 20 for grades 7-8) or one of our PTSA meetings. The first PTSA Meeting will be on Tuesday, September 25 at 7pm in the library. We thank you in advance for your support. Feel free to email us with questions/concerns at: fwms.ptsa.presidents@gmail.com

 

Warm Regards,

Trudi Durrell & Kelly McWhinnie
