about the PTO
The Falmouth Elementary School (FES) PTO sponsors activities and enrichment programs for our school community in Falmouth, Maine. We promote communication and cooperation between parents, teachers and school administrators and coordinate activities and programs that enhance the educational experience of all of FES children.
Field Trips, Education, Awareness
The PTO supports student enrichment activities to enhance FES learning experiences. Examples include dance classes, field trips, live performances, speakers, author talks, music appreciation, museum visits, and more!
Teacher & Staff Support
Celebrating Our FES Heroes
Past initiatives have included teacher lounge makeovers, holiday gifts for all teachers and staff, Valentines' Day Love Notes, and lots of special treats for Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week in May!
Parent & Family Connections
Family Support and FUN!
The PTO hosts a series of FUN and mostly FREE activities throughout the school year for our student body and their families: Harvest Festival, Bingo, Ice Skating night, Parent/Caregiver Mixers, Playground Meetups, Sea Dogs Night, and Movie Night. Check out our PTO Newsletter and Facebook feed each month to see what PTO has planned for your children and you!
School and Community Spirit
Bringing Communities Together
From welcoming new families through our First Mates program, to keeping parents informed through the Class Navigators (room parent) program, the PTO is actively developing new ways to connect the FES community. We also sell FES Navigators "Spirit Wear,” and continue to grow fundraisers and events to benefit local nonprofits.
Volunteer for PTO!
Join the Fun
The PTO is a friendly, active group of 30-40 parents who organize activities and events throughout the school year (Harvest Festival, Ice Skating night, Maine Needs/ Community Fundraisers, Parent Mixers, Teacher Appreciation Week, Playground Meet-ups, Sea Dogs Night, First Mates Program, Class Navigators, just to name a few!)
We have several very fun and varied roles available. Whether assisting for a few hours at a special event, serving on a PTO committee, or even considering a board position, we have a role for you on PTO. Please reach out and let us know your skills/interests.
