Welcome to the FASSV PTA website

The PTA website is helpful source of information regarding the PTA and an easy way to stay in touch with what is going on at the school. New information is posted regularly to provide you with up-to-date details about all of the happenings at the school.

All parents are strongly encouraged and invited to participate in the FASSV-PTA’s activities. Your involvement in your child’s school does make a difference both for your children and the school community.


You approved the PTA Budget and voted for the end-of-year donation

Thanks to all the parents who voted on Friday before the holiday!

The PTA budget for the 2017-18 school year is approved with 55 parent votes in favor, 0 against.

STEM program (Science Technology, Engineering, Math) has been chosen by a majority of parents (33 out of 59 votes). 19 parents voted for playground upgrade and 7 parents for interactive smartboards.

More info on STEM below:

imageSTEM began in 2001 and attempts to transform the typical teacher-centered classroom by encouraging a curriculum that is driven by problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning, and requires students to actively engage in a situation to find a solution.  This program aims at provide skills for tomorrow’s global leaders: greater ability to think critically, work as a member of a team and independently. A STEM lab is usually equipped with tables that provide students an opportunity to work with their peers in a way that allows collaboration in discovering answers.



Konstella: A new communication platform for the FASSV parent community

Konsella User Guide

We are excited to launch a new, secure and private parent communication platform for FASSV families called Konstella. This user-friendly platform offers a website and an iPhone / Android app that includes:
   PTA / room parents and school-wide announcements
   Classroom events which can be synced to your own calendar
   Volunteer sign-up opportunities
   Private messaging
   Searchable directory to contact other parents or teachers of our community
   Social groups and committees
   File and photo sharing
To get started, please accept the Konstella invitation you received by email. You will then be asked to choose a password and to enter your contact details (optional). The registration is a 1 minute process!
Our hope is that Konstella will streamline and centralize previous means of communication within the FASSV parent community (Yahoo Groups, Google sign up, or sign up sheets in the hallway!) to create a more user-friendly experience for everyone. Yahoo Groups will be phased out in the coming weeks. Renweb will still be used by the school administration for your children for all official school documentation. 
You can learn more about Konstella on their website: https://www.konstella.com/. This startup was funded by a Palo Alto mom, so we are proud to launch this Bay Area initiative
Please contact us at pta@fassv.org if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from the parent community!
