Farmington Woods Elementary School PTA
Join the PTA
Our voices are stronger together! Farmington Woods relies on our strong family community to volunteer time and to provide funding for programs, classroom supplies and technology. By joining forces with other NC PTO/PTAs and the national PTA organization, we amplify our ability to raise awareness for issues like teacher pay, classroom mandates, and other laws that impact our students.
PTA Volunteers Needed!
Apart from the positions listed below we also need people with great big ideas and huge hearts! Our PTA is 100% volunteer run and everything we raise goes back to the Farmington Woods community. If you have an idea for a program, fundraiser, or service that reaches out to our students, staff or teachers, please contact us!
