A Message from the Fairfax High School PTSA President

School year 2020-2021

Welcome from Fairfax High School PTSA President

2020-2021 School Year

Dear FHS Family,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome students, parents, teachers, and administrators to the Fairfax High School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). This is the beginning of an exciting year for you and your student(s). As part of the Fairfax High School community, I invite you to become actively involved in your student’s education. The latest research shows that parent involvement in their student’s school increases academic success. You can play a vital role in your student’s education by joining Fairfax High School’s PTSA.

With your support, the PTSA helps teachers, staff, and students create an exciting and challenging academic environment. By joining the PTSA, you will be privy to invaluable information regarding your student’s school and academic environment. And all PTSA members receive a complimentary online student directory in the fall.

The PTSA typically meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the school library. However, given our current situation and our virtual start to the school year, all PTSA meetings will be held virtually this fall. Our first meeting is scheduled for September 15. It is our sincere hope that we will be able to meet you face to face in 2021. Please refer to our website at www.fairfaxptsa.org to join now. PTSA meetings are open to everyone.

By joining, you will receive advance notice of upcoming events sponsored by the PTSA (such as presentations by special speakers), learn about opportunities to volunteer at our school, and stay informed about FHS activities. PTSA meetings are also a great opportunity to hear firsthand from our Principal, Dr. Erin Lenart, about all the new and exciting opportunities for you and your student to grow, learn, and become involved in our FHS community.

Your membership dues and donations support:

*Student awards

*Teacher grants

*Staff development and appreciation

*Student and community programs that enable students and families to succeed at FHS

I look forward to partnering with you this year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at president@fairfaxptsa.org.

Sincerely,

Josephine Perez Wolfer Acting President, Fairfax High School PTSA
