Your PTA


Fairmount Park Elementary PTA (Unit 6.15.11) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization that is an affiliate of both the Washington State PTA and the Seattle Council PTSA.






The Fairmount Park Elementary PTA exists to promote the social, emotional, and academic well-being of all students by working in synchronized collaboration with school families, teachers, and administrators to raise funds and develop programs that support engaging enrichment opportunities, efficient systems for coordinating volunteers, best practices in education and advocacy, and relevant resources for the Fairmount Park Elementary community.



The Fairmount Park Elementary PTA Board of Directors ( consists of an executive committee of elected officers, appointed standing committee chairs, and non-voting members and representatives.


Per the vote of the membership at the FPE PTA General Meeting on June 17, 2020, we are thrilled to announce the 2020-21 team of leadership volunteers. If you have the opportunity, please thank these folks for making time in their busy lives to strengthen our shared community, on behalf of every student at FPE.
