The PTA works with the school to

  • Plan education and community events
  • Enhance the classrooms and libraries
  • Create a welcoming family environment

The PTA’s goals are to

  • Inspire all FPG Bilingüe families and staff to get involved
  • Communicate effectively in both English and Spanish
  • Encourage families and staff to share their ideas
  • Organize events to build community, enrich student learning, and celebrate Hispanic and other cultures
  • Connect families and staff with each other and to school, district, and community resources
  • Raise funds to support instruction, school facilities, and family/community needs

We are a volunteer, membership-based organization. Many families support our programs by becoming PTA members and volunteering their time. Everyone is welcome to come to a meeting or participate in PTA activities.
