Dear Parents and Guardians,

Greetings, fellow Knights! As your PTA President, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to all our families – existing and new – to the Fort Lee School 1 community. The PTA plays an integral role not only hosting fun community-building events during the school year, but also overseeing school fundraising programs and providing volunteers for our amazing teachers and staff.

All of this takes hard work and dedication from our Fort Lee School 1 community members – YOU! With the 2019-2020 school year underway, we’re excited to hit the ground running and need your help to make it happen!

Each one of us has different skills, talents and resources needed to make Fort Lee School 1 as great as it can be. For some, it’s volunteering in our classrooms as a class parent. For others, it’s signing up to help bring a special event or activity to our students, such as Family Fun Day, dances and Scholastic Book Fairs. Please see our PTA announcements and upcoming events below to learn more about how you can participate and support our community this year.
