Join the PTA

The Fairhill Elementary School PTA welcomes parents, teachers and staff, grandparents, other adult family members, and community members as part of the PTA. We hope that at least one adult from each Fairhill family will consider becoming a member. Fairhill has a strong tradition of membership from its parents, teachers and staff.

Membership comes with some additional money-saving benefits to you. Whether you’re buying school supplies for the kids or renting a car for your next family vacation, PTA members can save money on everyday purchases thanks to National PTA’s Member Benefits Provider Program.

To join, click on the link https://fairhilles.memberhub.store/. Membership is available for a family for $20, for one parent (or other adult) for $10, and $5 for Fairhill teachers/staff.

Rain Garden Project Update

We are moving forward with our Rain Garden project this spring!  We are planting around the rear storm drain on April 30 with the assistance of Fairfax County Stormwater and their R3 Program (Revitalize, Restore, Replant). They are providing the native plants and will be on site to work with the 5th graders who will be doing the actual planting.  Friends of Accotink Creek will also be conducting a watershed educational session in the schoolyard that day as well!
