We are working on a few things, please email us if you’d like to be a part of any of it or to make a suggestion:
PTSA President’s Roundtable: Food Pantry and Swap Shop. We will be hosting a roundtable discussion including school staff, student organization representatives, and local community organizations to dialogue and plan for community services such as a school-families food pantry and in-school store (free, trade, or donation-cost items) for formal-wear, athletic equipment, coats, shoes, school/tech/arts supplies, etc.
PTSA President’s Roundtable: Support for Activities. We would like to host a roundtable discussion, including school staff, booster organization representatives, and team and club representatives, on supporting students with such things as after-school food on special days (games, performances, etc.); free/reduced passes for games/performances; athletic or artistic supplies (i.e. shoes, instruments, etc.); middle-school enrichment programs; guest-trainers/directors/consultants; and any other ideas to help support students to be involved in extra-curricular activities.
Global Calendar. We are working on a one-stop Google calendar having dates for PTSA events, Justice academics and activities, and important pyramid-school events.
Fundraising Committee. Come help us brainstorm and plan new fundraising activities, including, but not limited to a: trivia night; casino night; talent showcase; spring field day; and Senior caravan and carnival.
Member Meetings. We have 8 monthly member meetings left this year and we have a list of presentations/Q&As that are our goals for each meeting (not necessarily appearing in the order below), please email us if you have a suggestion:
- FCPD SRO and Community Outreach Representatives
- School Construction Update: FCPS Facilities Dept. and Fairfax County Park Authority
- School Board, County Board of Supervisors, and State Congressional Representatives
- Mental Health Wellness (First-Aid)
- A panel on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Racial Justice
- What is a PTA?
PTSA Listening Tour. We heard you and we will be continuing our efforts to come into neighborhoods and have dialogues. In order to streamline our time (let’s face it, no one wants to go to more meetings than they have to) and make it more convenient for people to attend, we are combining this with our monthly membership meetings. The sessions will begin at 6pm prior to the start of the 7pm member meetings (the videos will also be posted online) and our meeting will alternate locations (including, but not limited to: Glasgow; each of the pyramid elementary schools; apartment complex meeting rooms; the public library; parks, etc.). Please email us if you would like to suggest a location or host/plan one of the meetings.
