Fairfield Central Elementary PTC 2019-2020

Welcome parents and students to Fairfield Central Elementary!
The goal of our Parents and Teachers for Children (PTC) is to help support our school, teachers, staff and students. We do this by raising funds to purchase books, playground equipment, program supplies, and much, much more.
Do you enjoy meeting new people and helping others?
Then Central’s PTC Board is the place for you!
The PTC supports our school by volunteering our time to help, and coordinate, various activities such as school picture days, vision and hearing screenings, class & staff parties, book fair, classroom helpers, spirit wear and fundraisers.

These activities enhance the educational experience for our students!
We meet four times per year.
We plan events and activities throughout the school year.
*We need Volunteer Board Members for next year*
You are your children’s most important role model.
Showing you value their education will teach them to value it as well.

Please contact a current board member if you have any questions about positions.
Contact information is located at:
