PTA ENGAGEMENT SURVEY
Please take a 5 minute survey so your FHES PTA can best focus on the activities that matter most to you for the rest of the school year. A reminder that the PTA is 100% run by volunteers. The majority of them are parents, teachers & staff who work full time jobs just like you so please help us prioritize what to focus on with limited time, resources and volunteers. Please complete by 1/27.
