*We cannot accommodate any guest under 21 at our GALA for security and safety reasons per our event permit. We will request all adult guests to show proof of vaccination and a recent negative Covid19 antigen/ pcr test for admission to the event. Thanks for understanding and helping to keep everyone safe at this event.
*** Let’s work together to raise $60,000 from our Online Auction & Gala to support these much-needed funding areas: Ms. Jovana (garden/environmental educator who’s loved by all our students/staff); Classroom Supplies/Grade Level Funding our staff rely on; necessary Software Licenses + Hardware Technology all our students use; our wonderful Art in Action program; the school Garden Irrigation/Improvement to keep our garden thriving; and, the 5th Grade Fund. ***
ASAP! Board Members Needed, Please Volunteer
We’d like YOU to consider becoming a Board member. Without a PTA Board, we cannot maintain our PTA’s non-profit status and support our school. Don’t let that happen ~ we could lose many programs and crucial support for our students and staff!!! Interested in being a Board Member? Please see the Board role descriptions here, fill out the nomination form here, and email Valeska at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about any of the Board Member roles. Thank you for stepping up and serving your FSK community so we may continue to see all our students thrive!
Can you spare 30 minutes? We would love to have MORE VOLUNTEERS — sign up HERE! Many hands make light work and our students & staff are grateful for your time.

Let’s spruce up the garden and yard ahead of our Gala on Saturday 3/5 from 11a-1p. We need MANY VOLUNTEERS! Together, we can make the yard and garden look fabulous for the Gala the following weekend! We still need wood chips to cover our garden floor space. Donations and questions can be coordinated with Carly & Ashley at email@example.com. Please bring gloves and sunscreen for yourself during the garden workday. Thanks!
