Hello Firebird Staff and Families! 

Welcome back Firebirds and a great big welcome to our new FWCAA families! 
Even though this is not how we imagined our 2020-2021 school year to be, please be assured our PTA executive board officers have been busy planning for the year and are searching for ways to support our staff, students and FWCAA community even through these unprecedented times. 

We know we cannot do this alone! We would like to encourage you to join our PTA. Memberships are now available through a contactless, online link at (Joining PTA membership does NOT mean you have to volunteer or serve as a board member.) By joining and supporting our FWCAA PTA, you have a voice in the decisions that PTA makes. We welcome you to attend our PTA meetings, and the next one is scheduled for Thursday, September 24th. Our meetings will be virtually on zoom until we can safely meet in person again. With your support, FWCAA PTA can provide funds for students’ reading programs, technology, Reflections programs and more.

I’m very excited to announce that FWCAA PTA is registered with Amazon Smile. Whenever you shop through Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your qualifying purchases directly to FWCAA PTA, at no extra cost to you. (You first have to set your supporting charitable organization to FWCAA PTA from your Amazon Smiles account and Amazon App.

Here’s the link to do it:

Currently, we have some virtual online activities planned, our first one Starts Today! It's a Spirit Wear Sale! We hope that during this time that we are physically separated, these tokens of school spirit that we have designed will remind you that we are one awesome school, and we will learn, lead, and achieve together! Purchasing and wearing Spirit Wear is one of the easiest ways to support our school - even from a distance. We look forward to a great year with you! Please visit and check out all the great new items in our store! 
Go Firebirds!
