    Welcome to Fred A. Toomer Elementary School's PTA page! The teachers, administration, students, and families at Toomer all work together to make our school a great place for our students to learn and thrive. We are proud of our school and our community spirit and we want to help all families feel a part of the school community and be better able to support their child’s learning at home. 

    Our goal as a PTA is to provide a space for Toomer parents from all three of the school’s feeder neighborhoods to get to know each other, build meaningful relationships with each other, offer support to each other, and learn from each other how to best advocate for all Toomer students. 

    Additionally, we align our efforts with the priorities identified by school leadership to improve outcomes for students and strengthen the entire school community.

    These are our current projects and initiatives:

    • Organize and host community-building events
    • Recruit volunteers to help support this year's events- Sign up here!
    • Host Let’s Talk about Toomer panels for prospective parents to hear more about their neighborhood school
    • Run an online Spirit Store
    • Organize monthly Dine Outs/Take Outs at neighborhood restaurants 
    • Maintain a Uniform closet for use by all Toomer families
    • Fund and organize teacher appreciation
    • Fund Teacher of the Month/Teacher of the Year celebrations
    • Send weekly announcements & monthly newsletters
    • Engage with the community on social media
    • Help parents navigate questions and/or concerns
