The Parent Teacher Association supports the teachers, students and school by raising funds, planning events, and coordinating family involvement. We work together to help our Forest View community thrive. To keep our community thriving, we need to continue to grow our membership and include new faces, ideas, and talent each year. PTA President’s Letter for Forest View Families

From PTA President, Dina Niblock:

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year and welcome to another wonderful year as part of our Forest View community!  I am your PTA president, Dina Niblock.  I have a 3rd grader and a FV graduate who is now in 8th grade.  Our PTA works to support our teachers, staff, students and families. We work closely with school staff to plan many events each year – including our Fall Festival on October 13.

The PTA raises money to support the many aspects of Forest View life. Last year, thanks to many of you, we raised more than $20,000 in our annual “Unfundraiser”. This fundraiser is our main source of income, income we use to support all the great things that make Forest View unique. We also have a great lineup of ‘Spirit Nights’ planned at local restaurants where the PTA will get a portion of the proceeds from those evenings. The information for all the ways you can help can earn funds is on this website, and look for information in your child’s backpack throughout the year.  New this year, we are using Memberhub for online sales. Go to https://forestviewpta.memberhub.store/shopping/categories/2023 to pay your dues online.

The money that our PTA raises supports classroom teachers, specials (such as music, art, PE, and technology), our media center, cultural arts programming, outdoor learning/gardening, our science program, and much more.

There are many opportunities to get involved at Forest View.  Each class will need two room parents, and the PTA helps coordinate that effort. We need help at the Fall Festival, on our Landscaping Days, and during Multicultural Night and Science Share.  Volunteers act as tour guides for prospective families, provide snacks and breakfasts to our teachers and staff throughout the year, chaperone field trips and more. We hope you can find a volunteer opportunity that interests you and works with your schedule.

Please check our PTA website (https://forestviewpta.net) regularly to learn about how the PTA contributes to the Forest View community.   Sign up to receive the weekly PTA email. It provides information on upcoming events and how to stay involved.  Send an email to ptaforestviewelementary@gmail.com to get your name added to the email list.

We also invite you to attend PTA/Steering Team meetings throughout the year to keep up with all that is happening at Forest View.  Check out our bulletin board as you enter Forest View to learn more about your PTA.

If you have any questions, please contact any of our PTA officers.  We are excited you are part of the Forest View community. We look forward to all the great things this year will bring.

Go Falcons!
