Parent Participation Counts

Research shows that students achieve academic goals and learn essential life skills and responsibility to the community when parents and teachers build partnerships of trust and collaboration.

Forestville Elementary invites our parents to volunteer in your child’s classroom or in the library. 

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA), one of our greatest assets, coordinates many volunteer opportunities both inside and outside the classroom, for after-school enrichment programs, and for community gatherings like bingo and skate night.

The PTA relies on all parents to get involved with their children’s education in some way, and this makes for a more advanced education and stronger community. Please take time to browse the PTA website and consider how you can best contribute.

FCPS Cares

FCPS Cares is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Business and Community Partnerships

The Business and Community Partnerships office’s primary functions are to recruit and supports Ignite Partnerships, serve as a liaison to local Chambers of Commerce and other community organizations, help lead the annual Collect for Kids school supply drive, manage the FCPS Donations Portal for donated goods, and promote the Savings for Staff merchant discount program.

In the last decade, the Business & Community Partnerships team has helped secure over ten million dollars in donations of money and valued goods through partnerships and direct donations, not including the value of volunteer hours contributed by partners and mentors.

Parent Volunteers 

Volunteers are essential to the success of Fairfax County Public Schools. Many enriching and worthwhile experiences are afforded to our children through the volunteer help from parents. Every day, volunteers change the lives of students across FCPS and we offer several ways for people in the community to get involved.
