Letter from the FAePTO President

Dear Parents,

The Foothills Academy Elementary School PTO would like to welcome you to our school! For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. We work hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.

The purpose of our PTO is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs. We promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents. Our PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school.

We are looking forward to meeting parents, grandparents, and friends that would like to get involved with our PTO this year. We encourage you to not only join our organization, but also get involved! Everything we do is based on volunteers. Our PTO strives to make a difference in the lives our children. Whatever time you are able to give, whether it be an hour of your time to attend a meeting, help with the organization of an event, or a donation, it makes a difference. Many hands make the job easier.

As part of our bylaws, only members who have made the $25 PTO contribution are allowed to vote. Your $25 contribution not only gives you voting privileges, but contributes to the needs of the school. PTO funds support teacher classrooms, technology, and other school activities and projects that support the philosophies and values of our curriculum. All contributions are kept within out school. Voting takes place on the budget, bylaws, board members, and how PTO funds are spent.

Your participation will help to make 2015-16 a great school year. We need as many volunteers as possible, and are extremely flexible to work around your schedule. Our PTO meets once a month to discuss events, plan fundraiser to enhance our school, and share ideas. Our first meeting will be August 20th at 6 PM. This is a wonderful way to find out what is happening at our school!

Our PTO believes that it is of the highest importance that we do everything we can to enhance the learning environment of our children as they truly are our future.

We look forward to getting to know you!


Your FAePTO Board

President -Cara Riek

Vice-Presidents – Kristin Dybvig-Pawelko and Jamie Pogue
