Welcome to the FASSV PTA website
The PTA website is an excellent 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.
Call for PTA Officers
The PTA is still looking for candidates to join the FASSV PTA Board for the 2017-2018 school year. Specifically, we are looking to fill the roles of President and Vice President. We highly encourage you to join the PTA team, it is a rewarding experience that allows you to work with both the parent community and school administration. If you are interested in becoming a PTA Board Member, or if you have any questions about PTA roles, please send an email to email@example.com or approach one of the current PTA members (our profiles are posted on the PTA board in the hallway).
Yahoo! Groups for Classroom Communication
If you are not yet registered with the Yahoo! Groups, you should have received several separate invitations to join the following groups:
– Parents all
– Parents share
– Class Yahoo! Groups corresponding to your child’s grade
The Parents_all group is to be used ONLY for school-wide topics and PTA related activities and events (school events and activities, safety around school,notice of illness, etc…).
Parents share is dedicated to FASSV community and previous FASSV parents (alumni) who did not unsubscribe. This group can be used to share information about various topics between parents (garage sale, nanny, etc.), or to post personal suggestions of activities.
Each grade has its own Yahoo! dedicated group. The class Yahoo! Groups are named according to the graduation year of your child. You will be part of the same group until 5th grade. The groups are used by room parents to communicate with you regarding class and school events. They also facilitate communication between parents with children in the same class. The email address for your grade-specific group can be found here.
For more information on how to register for Yahoo! Groups, please follow these step by step instructions. If you have not received any invitations yet or if you have any questions regarding the Yahoo! Groups, please contact:
Geraldine Lerouge: firstname.lastname@example.org

Join our SCRIP fundraising program
Unlike other types of contribution programs, this one DOES NOT cost you anything!
As many of you know, the FASSV SCRIP program is a simple way to contribute funds to the Parents Teachers Association. The SCRIP program offers a large selection of gift cards from over 750 retailers. Participating retailers give a discount between 2% and 15% that directly benefits the FASSV PTA. For more information on Scrip please see our Scrip page.
Your regular purchase of gift cards for food (SAFEWAY, WHOLE FOODS, SPROUTS and others), gasoline (SHELL, CHEVRON, ARCO) and other items that your family needs sends automatic contributions to the FASSV Community. Last year, we raised about $3500 from retailers.
We are 130 families today, so if each family takes a small part in SCRIP program we can do even better! For those of you who have reloadable cards, go ahead and start reloading!We will have gift cards for sale beginning September 25th , Friday and you can also order other cards for yourself using the FORM on the PTA board or directly on www.shopwithscrip.com.
If you have any questions about the program or need help getting set up, please feel free to email Vera Gady. Vera is also looking for someone to help her with run the SCRIP program! Please reach out, should you be interested!
The Administration has launched a new information management system this school year. Class and school directories can now be found on RenWeb. As a result, the PTA will no longer be publishing the FASSV Family Directory booklet. You will be able to find all PTA related information here on our PTA website.
