COMING UP SOON:
A Message From Your PTA Officers
On behalf of the PTA its our pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful community! We are so excited to take on the role as the new PTA Officers! We are looking forward to a great year filled with fantastic events, community building activities and most importantly, supporting our kids and teachers so they can continue to attain excellence in education!
The primary way to make this the best year for your family and our community is to join the PTA! The other way is to volunteer! We are always in need of more volunteers on committees or at events that are run throughout the year. If you are looking to volunteer and don't know how to please ask us and we are happy to have the help!
All members are invited to attend monthly PTA meetings. We will post a schedule of meeting dates . You’ll have the chance to meet other involved parents, volunteer for events, and develop a personal relationship with school administrators. You can bring up your ideas, questions, and concerns directly to people who have the ability to implement change.
Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for the most up to date information.
We are looking forward to another amazing school year.
See you at the FORT!

School Supplies: Click here to order school supply kits for next school year. All kits will include name brand school supplies and include everything the county requires for each grade level. This is a service and not a fundraiser, so prices are very competitive. Most classrooms use community supplies and all the kids end up sharing supplies at tables. Save yourself time and order ahead to make the back to school transition easy. All orders will be completed online. Kits will be delivered to your child's classroom before back to school night in August.
