a word of welcome from the fisw PTA co-presidents

Bonjour FISW Community,

Welcome back to another school year! We hope that your children have enjoyed their first week back at school.  As your PTA Co-Presidents, we would like to welcome the new families into our community and welcome back our wonderful returning families. Barbara, the teachers and the staff have worked hard to prepare for a successful school year full of growth and amazing memories.  We greatly appreciate their dedication to our children.

Welcome to your membership in the PTA!  Did you know that as an FISW parent, you are already a member of the PTA? The PTA is an organization that is committed to making a difference by building a strong community for all our families. We partner with parents, teachers, staff and community on many levels to bring fun and educational speakers, events and opportunities for our families to enrich your school experience. Please join us in whatever capacity you are able, as an officer, a volunteer, an event chair, whatever works for you!  Your involvement makes a difference to our community and most importantly, makes a difference to your child. 

Our first PTA meeting will be on September 19th.  Please join us for wine and snacks and meet other families.  At the beginning of this first meeting we will have the opportunity to introduce ourselves as well as the Co-Vice Presidents for the year.  We will also be holding elections for:  Secretary, Treasurer, Events Chair, Social Chair, Communications Chair, Publicity Chair, Hospitality Chair, and Outreach Chair.  Please find the officer descriptions in the Petit Journal from September 9. The FISW website also has a PTA page that includes upcoming events and useful information, so that you can look up dates and details at your own convenience.
