Fairmount Park Elementary PTA

Fairmount Park Elementary PTA's page for communication regarding PTA meetings, events, and volunteer opportunities.

[09/10/17]   Curriculum night is this Thursday. It is a wonderful opportunity to talk to your teacher (without your kids) and learn about the curriculum for the year. We need volunteers for that night to help with pictures for badges and be at a PTA table to answer questions. We would be grateful for your help! Signups are on fpepta.org. Thank you all!


Have you heard that we are losing Mr. Harris?! THIS FRIDAY?!

It's great news for him...a promotion to Meanie Middle School. But Chester Harris has been a fixture at Fairmount Park since its reopening (and he actually worked at the old FPE early in his career!!).

Mr. Harris's gifts have been far beyond the day-to-day janitorial, maintenance and operational duties that have been essential to our school functioning: he has also given hours of piano music, quiet supervision when needed, and some mad sax at Mr. Pendergrasses blues event last spring. And likely so much more.

If you feel inclined today to write a note of appreciation to Mr. Harris and drop it by the office Friday, I have no doubt he'd appreciate it despite his modest and shy nature. I also hear he is saving for a trip to Hawaii (cash or gift cards?) and prefers red over white.

Anything that arrives after his departure I am sure we can arrange to get to him. This man deserves to be celebrated!!

Kids have met their teacher, the school supplies are dropped off and after a good nights sleep (I hope), we'll see your kids at school tomorrow. Here is a reminder on the bell times: The playground opens at 7:40 with the first bell at 7:50 a.m. School officially starts at 7:55 a.m. School ends at 2:25 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday's and Fridays. Early Release Wednesdays: 7:55 a.m. – 1:10 p.m. Exception to this is the first day of school when the final bell will be 2:25 p.m.

Sending a reminder about bell times. See you all in school tomorrow!

[09/05/17]   Tomorrow is the Open House from 2.30 - 4.00 p.m. when your child meets their teacher. Remember to bring your school supplies with you. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Did you know that our new website (fpepta.org) can display the text in over 80 languages? Look to the top left corner of the website and change to the language of your choice. Spread the word as we want all to feel included and able to keep informed.

We are building a stronger community this year! We look forward to seeing you at Falcon Fests and grade-level cohort events. What is a cohort? A cohort event is a relaxed social event that will have the purpose of connecting families with one another within the grade level. The hope is that the cohort event will allow families time to chat, grow in friendship and community, extended beyond school grounds. Look for information on how to get connected and attend events. Go to fpepta.org to register and stay connected with our school community.

[08/31/17]   Hello Falcons! How are you doing getting ready for school? Let us know if there are any questions we can answer.
