NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

Thank you for supporting the APEX fundraiser. Students had a great time at the fun run today, as well as, each day with the APEX staff during lunch and visiting classrooms to teach the APEX STRONG leadership skills.


We are still in need of a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) president. All the other officers are in place for next year, but we need a president to continue to operate the PTO at Foskett.


PTO volunteers organize fundraisers to funded assemblies, purchase Chromebooks for students, purchase safety equipment and classroom/school materials and supplies. Please call Michelle in the office with your questions about this position as she served as PTO president a couple of years ago. Thank you for considering this opportunity to enhance the students' school experience.
