The PTSO supported programs include, but are not limited to, Curriculum Enhancements, Socials, Staff Appreciation, Supporting the Music and Arts programs, Spelling Bee, Field Day, Memory Book and “Caught You Being Good”.  These programs are run by our wonderful parent volunteers!  Please contact Stacey Cobb at staceycobb@gmail.com if you would like to be involved.

    In addition to our programs, there are a few other ways to stay involved.  First, we hold monthly PTSO meetings to answer questions and encourage participation. These meetings are a great way to be involved in the school and we hope to see you.  We promise to keep them short and sweet!!  Second,  please enroll in our Ft Couch PTSO eAlert (click here to learn how to sign up for e-alerts.) as this is our primary avenue of communication.  Third, use the following link to connect via our parents Facebook page.
