President's Message

A Message from the Fairfax High School PTSA President

School year 2018-2019

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. Our first meeting is on September 18. Please refer to our website at www.fairfaxptsa.org to join now. PTSA meetings are open to everyone. By joining, you’ll 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 new Principal, Mrs. 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

*Speaker programs for Parents, Teachers, and Students

*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 Wolfer

President, Fairfax High School PTSA
