Parent Teacher Organization
The Parent/Teacher Organization Board seeks to continue the endeavors of past PTO Boards in improving the overall educational experience for our students. The measure of the success of the Fairfield PTO is dependent upon the willingness of parents and teachers to become involved. A wide array of volunteer opportunities are available and parent participation is both needed and encouraged to reach our goals.
What Does the P.T.O. Do?
The Fairfield PTO Supports: Class Trips; sports uniforms; teacher’s supplies; flowers for graduation; and sports equipment.
How you can help: Attend a monthly meeting, if you can’t attend, then call or email suggestions and ideas; share a special talent with students; and volunteer for an event!
