Having family members who actively care about you is a special thing—and rare. Most kids LOVE when school and family blend together. It makes them feel comfortable, confident and special.
Interested in getting more involved? Here are some ideas to consider.
Regardless of where you live, you can:
1—Join the FHES PTO
Joining our PTO each school year is one great way to invest in your grandkid's well-being. PTO brings fun educational opportunities into our FHES community.
2—Support Fundraising Efforts
You can also support your grandchild's fundraising efforts. Fundraising provides programs and supplies for students that are outside the scope of the school's budget. Giving benefits not only your grandchildren but other children, who do not have strong family support. Learn more here.
If you live locally you can also:
3—Share in our Grandparents Event
Grandparents are always welcome at any of our events. However, we host a special one to honor you and your grandchild(ren). Your involvement will delight kids and send a strong message that education is important to you. Learn more here.
4—Join the “Party Planners” team
If you like to make sure kids have a great time, you can volunteer to help with events and parties this school year. Kids LOVE these events, and look forward to them eagerly. More info here.
5—Use your powers for good
Volunteering is a great way to support your grandkid's school in ways that suit your interests and abilities. And it sets a good example for them to follow as they grow. From book fair volunteers to baking for teachers or just doing odd jobs here and there, your investment means a lot— and is noticed by many little eyes! Learn more here!
6—Use your leadership skills
If you have some extra time, care about kids, and work well with other adults, you could be a valuable PTO board member! This can be a great way to use your business skills, personal skills and passions to make our community a better place. Contact our PTA president if you are open to a leadership role.
