Fred A Toomer Elementary School is a Title I neighborhood school serving the Kirkwood, Edgewood and East Lake communities of Atlanta. The mission of the PTA is to work with parents, teachers and the community to advocate for our children and strengthen our school community.
You can help us!
We are hoping to raise $5,000 for the 2019-2020 school year to:
- Create a strong parent network who can work together to advocate for our students;
- Provide FREE programming so all families can feel connected to the school and know how to help support their child's education;
- Host community-based events that are inclusive and accessible for all Toomer families regardless of their income;
- Conduct outreach to the local community to boost our school's enrollment; and
- Support our dedicated teachers and school staff in their work to nurture and educate our students.
These funds will allow us to:
- Provide food at the annual Back to School Picnic;
- Ensure dinner and childcare is available at ALL school events and parent meetings;
- Host family learning nights at school to help parents support their children's education at home and get to know school staff;
- Revamp our outdoor classroom to give teachers another option for learning and exploration;
- Host our annual Spaghetti Dinner, open to the entire community;
- Coordinate a family dance and a student art show to engage families and showcase our school to the larger community;
- Celebrate our teachers on Teacher Appreciation Week in May;
- Provide basic school supplies to teachers and staff;
- Support school wellness efforts to ensure kids have access to healthy food choices and physical activity;
- Support and promote cluster wide events to build a community beyond our immediate neighborhood; and
- Work with school administration to identify families in need of financial support.
