FAIRFAX ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA
2018-2019 PTA Initiatives
Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year! We hope you're all excited for a great new school year. The Fairfax PTA wants to extend an invitation to all families to participate in the many events and enrichment opportunities that the PTA provides.
This school year includes the Fairfax Fall Festival, which will take place on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 from 12-4pm. Trust us, you will not want to miss this every-other-year family festival which includes bounce houses, crafts, raffles and a prize wheel!!
We welcome your questions and ideas throughout the year. And PLEASE, if you are on Facebook, “like” the Fairfax PTA page. This is our quickest and easiest way to communicate about school events (we all know we could use an extra reminder the night before Pajama Day!).
Check out the PTA Events link for a full 2018-2019 calendar of events. You will receive additional printed monthly flyers with important news and event reminders.
