Fast Facts about the Fairview Parent Organization
What is our purpose?
The Fairview Parent Organization (FPO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting our school administration and staff, and supporting the education of our students. We strive to accomplish these goals through raising significant funds for use in the classroom, for staff development, and for building and sustaining our school community. Additionally, we coordinate many volunteer activities and events, provide a forum for parent education and communication, and serve as a parent-based liaison between our school and the district.
What happens at the meetings?
In addition to our parents, our principal Don Stensrud attends FPO meetings. The meetings begin with a principal’s report, which may include pertinent parenting issues. Agenda items are then addressed.
Parents do not have to “join” the FPO to be involved at Fairview, nor do parents have to attend FPO meetings. In fact, as much as we would love for all parents to attend the FPO meetings, there are many other ways to be involved at Fairview that do not require attending any meetings!
What is the Knight Quest?
The Knight Quest is the name of the FPO fundraising campaign. We raise most of our funds through a direct request to our parents. The money raised by the FPO supports many efforts at the school, including instructional support and technology, staff development, parent education and forums, and building improvements.
How can I get involved?
There are countless ways to be involved with the FPO! The best way to find out about volunteer opportunities is to attend the meetings or to read the meeting minutes that we post on the FPO section of the school website. Or, you can contact us individually - see the contact information at the bottom of this page.
