Forts Ferry PTA

 The PTA provides educational enrichment and fun for our children!  


  To receive emails from FF PTA you must create an account on this site (left sidebar) and enter your contact and student information.

Make sure your account is updated each year for an accurate directory listing.

ONLY members receive a free directory!



Dear Families,


On behalf of the Forts Ferry PTA Board, we would like to welcome all families back to school! Whether you are new to our school, a returning family, have a child learning remotely or one attending in-person instruction, we will be here for you and your child.  We welcome all our families to join the PTA!

We are facing a different school year based on the pandemic situation facing us.  Based on this, the PTA will need to adjust their activities for this school year.  We will still be focused on the kids and positive, uplifting activities but we will need to do different ones or do them differently.  We will count on our membership to help us decide where to focus our efforts to best meet student and family needs.  Please consider joining the PTA so we can support each other during this time and help our children through the school year.

We have many ways for families to be involved in the PTA and support the children and school.  All of them are equally important and essentially to our continue success.  We need volunteers, input at our meetings, event support, members or one can chose to donate money with joining / making a donation.  Our plan for the year is to have very little fundraising, which is why we have a donation option with our membership.

Regular PTA membership is $10. Tier 2 membership is $20 (membership plus $10 donation) and Tier 3 membership is $30 (membership plus $20 donation). One can become a member at our membership site. https://fortsferry.memberhub. store/ 

PTA Meetings for the 2020-2021will be held from 7:00-8:00 pm via Zoom, unless the pandemic situation changes. Once you join the PTA, you will receive an email with information on how to access the Zoom meeting.

Please reach out to any Board member with questions or concerns you may have.


Support our PTA by becoming a member!!

Membership money goes towards events and programs
