Fairfield Warde High School PTA
The PTA is a machine that's fueled by the energy and participation of our volunteers. We have so many ways in which you can help - from jobs that take an hour to year-round positions.

By supporting the PTA with your time, you are investing in making the FWHS community a better place for your child, your child's educators, and your fellow FWHS families.

"One & Done" Volunteer Information

Throughout the school year, there will be a number of volunteer opportunities that do not require you to chair a committee, but where you are asked to lend a quick hand and volunteer some of your time or contribute in another way. We will be using the sign-up feature on MySchoolAnywhere as much as possible to make signing-up super convenient and to present all opportunities in one spot as they become available. Personalized sign-up links are periodically sent to the Warde Community, but you can also click here to access all currently open FWHS PTA volunteer opportunities. Make sure to bookmark your personal link and check back often for opportunities.

Committee Chairs, please be in touch with the Volunteer Coordinator to add your volunteer sign-up requests.

The 2018 Fairfield Warde HS Flea Market season is in full swing (running monthly - every 3rd Sunday - till October) & we are looking for some great people interested in joining fellow Warde parent Kitti Fisher-Borgatti in learning the ropes from the amazing, current (but unfortunately graduated this past spring) team, & then taking it onwards.

We’d love someone who’s in-the-know with community news outlets, local vendors, food trucks, crafters & artists, face-painters, balloon sculptors, musicians, you-name-it, to continue on the FWHS Flea Market tradition & biggest PTA fundraiser, while adding a Fair element.

Just the same, if you’re a current Warde parent who doesn’t know a soul & has no experience, but would still like get involved... welcome.

(Also, if you’re interested in getting a booth, let us know & we’ll keep you in the loop.)

Email fwhsfleamarket@gmail.com for more information & to get on-board.
