About Your PTA
Participating in the PTA is the best way to create a great school community!
Members stay informed of the events and decisions taking place at our school, volunteer when possible, and have a vote in how fundraising dollars are spent.

The Fairmount Park Elementary PTA exists to promote the social, emotional, and academic well-being of all students by working in synchronized collaboration with school families, teachers, and administrators to raise funds and develop programs that support engaging enrichment opportunities, efficient systems for coordinating volunteers, best practices in education and advocacy, and relevant resources for the Fairmount Park Elementary community.
Fairmount Park Elementary PTA (Unit 6.15.11) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization that is an affiliate of both the Washington State PTA and the Seattle Council PTSA.
The Fairmount Park Elementary PTA Board of Directors (email@example.com) consists of an executive committee of elected officers, appointed standing committee chairs, and non-voting members and representatives. Per the vote of the membership at the FPE PTA General Meeting in June 2023, we are thrilled to announce the 2023-24 team of leadership volunteers. If you have the opportunity, please thank these folks for making time in their busy lives to strengthen our shared community, on behalf of every student at Fairmount Park Elementary.
