FAST Family PTO

Our Mission

The Parent Teacher Organization's (Fast Family PTO) objective is to enrich the education of FAST students and enhance the efforts of the school staff by promoting relationships and involvement as well as utilizing the talents and resources of our families, teachers, school, and community. FAST Family PTO does this through projects such as helping to offset the cost of classroom supplies, teacher luncheons and family fun outings. 

WHY JOIN THE PTO?

  • Parent involvement is the number one predictor of early literacy success.
  • Kids with involved parents do better in school and score higher and tests.
  • Kids with involved parents are more likely to pursue higher education. 
  • FAST Family PTO supports the school through staff appreciation events, teacher grants, community outreach, clinic supplies, student council events, family events and school support events (including field day, Dr.Seuss Week and Red Ribbon week)

PTO Membership

For the last two years, FAST Family PTO has had tremendous success combining our annual membership drive with a simple check writing campaign. This event replaces all other fundraising sales (i.e. wrapping paper, candles) that usually take place throughout the school year and the easy, one-time donation is even tax deductible!

Your donation directly funds the PTO sponsored programs that benefit our students, staff & school!
Please consider this when selecting your level below.

Partners in Education

In addition to family members, FAST Family PTO is seeking company Partners in Education. We believe that the educational experience of our students can be enriched through the involvement of our business community. To achieve this, we offer a number of opportunities for businesses to partner with the school by contributing financial or other resources in return for targeted marketing outreach to our school community which extends throughout Fulton County. We offer five sponsorship levels ranging from Rocket Booster at $100 where a business will have their name and logo on our website, mentions in the school/PTO newsletter and their business logo in the school online directory to Platinum Rocket for contributions of $2500 or more. In addition to the aforementioned, Platinum Rocket sponsors will receive a yearbook advertisement, a framed certificate in the school lobby and flyers sent home twice during the school year or banner at two school events. Additional benefits may include spirit night/cash mobs, student art work displayed in business, thank you cards from faculty/staff and students.

Find details here in our information flyer.

FAST PiE members will also be invited to events throughout the year including Fall Festival, International Night, Bingo Night and the Art Festival where they will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the school community allowing them to both get to know our students and families and drive awareness of their business to our community.

If you own a business, know someone who does or have a favorite local business that you frequent, please contact PTO@FASTK8.org for further details.

Spirit Wear

Spirit wear pre-orders are closed. Be on the lookout for opportunities to buy spirit wear at select PTO events.
