Are You Ready?

The official start of the 2016-2017 school year will be here soon. In order to make the most of the last couple of weeks, the Fulton Elementary School PTA would like to share a few notes with you...


The Fulton Elementary School PTA Membership is available online now!  

Many people ask "Why should I join the PTA?"

The number one reason to join the Fulton Elementary School PTA (FES PTA) is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. FES PTA memberships in 2016 helped support the teacher reimbursement program, teacher luncheons, Bus Driver Appreciation Day, and more.  There are many more advantages to joining the FES PTA:
  • Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
  • Tap into a Network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
  • Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
  • Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
  • Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
In an effort to be more green, we're asking our FES families to join online. If you prefer a paper form, it can be printed by clicking here.
