This is an exciting time for everyone as another amazing year of school begins. The PTA looks forward to working with parents and faculty to ensure that it is a productive and beneficial year for all. Please come join us to see what a difference YOU can make! Just a small amount of your time can go a long way! There are many things that take little time but help in tremendous ways. You can assist in the classroom, passing off sight words, tutoring students who are struggling to read, making copies for teachers, going on field trips, and much more!. You can also help judge entries for Reflections, test student’s vision, assist in running the Book Fairs, organize assemblies, count Box Tops, etc. Please like our Facebook page “Farnsworth PTA” and stay informed!

The theme for the Reflections Contest this year is “Within Reach.” The Reflections Contest is a national contest promoting creativity in the arts. There are seven categories and students can enter once in each category. The categories are Photography, Visual Arts, Music Composition, Literature, Film Production, Dance Choreography, and 3-D Art.
Come join the fun! There are many different ways to get involved, if you choose. For those who aren’t able to volunteer, that’s OK! The PTA would love to have your $7 donation to help their programs run. The PTA will have a table set up during SEP’s, so feel free to come and ask them questions and learn more information.
