Welcome to the start of the new year!
Parent Council is an organization of parents and guardians who work together to make Fort River a fun, stimulating, and welcoming environment for all children and families. Every parent and guardian is automatically a member of Parent Council.
Here are some of last year’s Parent Council sponsored events:
- A Free Yearbook and Student Directory for Every Student
- Family Fair
- School Picture Day
- Fall Festival
- Book Fair
- Field Day
- Special Education Staff Needs
- Classroom Support & Enrichment
- Extra Funds for Field Trips
- Library Funds
- Scholarship Fund
- After School Clubs
- Staff Appreciation Luncheon
- Bus Driver Breakfast
- And many more …
To continue these and other activities we hope all parents will make two commitments to Parent Council this year:
- Volunteer 2 hours of your time.
- Donate money to our Annual Fund.
This year Parent Council would like to focus time and energy on student events and community building rather than fundraising. If we can raise a significant portion of our $13,000 budget by Sept 25th we will eliminate several time-consuming fundraisers. Please help us by making an early donation to our Annual Fund. Suggested donation is $25-$50 a child, but donating more will help the families who cannot afford as much. All amounts will help us reach our goal. Please choose your tax deductible donation amount:
Donate online via PayPal.
Thanks for all your support !
