FWCAA PTA 2022-2023

Hello Firebird Staff and Families! 

Welcome back Firebirds and a great big welcome to our new FWCAA families! 
The PTA's mission is to find ways to support our staff, students, families and the entire FWCAA community.  We can be reached any time at  

We know we cannot do this alone! We would like to encourage you to join our PTA and get on our e-mailing list to be notified of upcoming meetings, events, volunteer opportunities in the school and family engagement opportunities. Memberships are available at  (Joining PTA membership does NOT mean you have to volunteer or serve as a board member.) By joining and supporting our FWCAA PTA, you have a voice in the decisions that PTA makes and an influence over your child's educational experience. We welcome you to attend our PTA meetings, normally held the first Monday of the month at 5:30 pm via Zoom.
