The Wine Wagon is back

We need your wine donations for the auction … to be won at the wine grab bag game. The Wine Wagon will be parked across from the front entrance to the school on Thursday, February 2nd (Groundhog Day!) and Friday, February 3rd at pick up.

(No wine on school grounds, please.)

And remember, if the groundhog sticks his head out and doesn’t see wine, it means sad attendees at the auction (and less funding raised for PTA supported programs).

Thank you in advance for all of your support for the FPE students and community!

Education Advocacy – Our kids need ALL of us to act!

Education Funding in Washington State is at a critical juncture. Due to lack of State investment and impending cuts to local levy funds, the Seattle School District is looking at a $74 million deficit that will impact all our schools in the coming school year. At Fairmount Park, it means cutbacks in staff and programs, including counseling, vice principal support, instrumental music and other areas that make Fairmount Park such and amazing school.

We need each of you to take action now! Click here for easy next steps and valuable information…
