We run many projects throughout the year to benefit our school and the education of our children. From funding special school directed projects to the ongoing support of field trips and cultural assemblies to hosting fun family friendly events, it all happens through the PTA! We’re glad you’re here to learn more about us.
Interactive projectors can turn a dry erase board, wall or table into an interactive display. They are the perfect whiteboard alternative. During the 2016-2017 school year the Fairhill PTA purchased 15 interactive projectors. This school year, our goal is to raise $20,000 to install interactive projectors in 10 remaining classrooms.
They improve the classroom environment, engage students in a more hands-on approach to group learning, and with internet and video capabilities they are replacing the old TV monitors for morning announcements and digital presentations. Teachers and staff report ease-of-use and high satisfaction rates in not just our schools but in many across Fairfax County as new or renovated schools buildings are designed and built.
A Fairhill parent is working with the County, FCPS, and various organizations to get approvals to build a sustainable school ground. The plan includes a butterfly garden and natural habitats for science instruction and proper drainage.
Funds raised by the Fairhill PTA are used to subsidize field trips for all grades.
