Breaking news for 2018!

The PTO is excited to announce.....
                                               A NEW slide has been installed!!!
In the beginning of the school year, parts of our playground equipment were removed due to wear and tear over decades of children playing on them! The PTO has been working with the School Board and the District to replace what we can and come up with creative solutions to make recess as engaging as we can for our kids. We are also looking into acquiring more recess aides in the new year to maintain that safe and engaging recess environment. There is a lot more to do, but your PTO and our wonderful volunteers are ready to take on the work!

Reoccurring Dates to Mark in your Calendars:

PTO Meetings:   
Lion's  Den
Why Should you note these dates?
PTO meetings are when we go over past and upcoming events, talk about what is going on in the community and in the school and open the floor to come together as one Fleetwood Family Community.
The Lion's Den is a long standing Fleetwood tradition - our school store! It is exciting for the kids and a fun way to show Fleetwood School Pride! (Cash Only)
