Join our ongoing mission to support the staff and students in an engaging and innovative learning community. Our group collaborates with the faculty in exploring different strategies to most effectively address the dynamic academic, cultural and aesthetic needs at Freeport Middle School for the 2015-16 academic year. Our first meeting will be September 14th at 6:30 at the middle school.
We encourage individual input towards our goal of an inclusive, positive educational community for students, teachers and families. Your presence at monthly meetings is highly valued, as are your proactive contributions for monthly agenda items or discussion topics, email Stacey Lodato, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or Ray Grogan, email@example.com.
Meetings take place every other month in the FMS library, on rotating evenings throughout the year. These are announced via office email and Daily Announcements. Grants and faculty needs will be discussed and voted on at meetings as they arise to ensure funds are allocated quickly as opportunities arise to enrich our students curriculum.
We request that families make every effort to participate in at least one or more event each academic year, by contributing your time, skills, talents, expertise, and positive energy!
Look for an online “SignUp Genius”, coming soon to chair our PTC events. Event chairs will create their own sign up genius to organize their event for your support. During our first PTC meeting – details will be reviewed with you so you know exactly what is needed. Most of these are a quick 5-minute signup genius and a few hours to support the event. We have FUN no matter what event it is!
