How Can You Support Fireside Elementary?
Fireside Elementary welcomes the active participation of parents, grandparents and community members. We believe that children flourish in an academic environment that unites home and school. This supports student enrichment and achievement with a goal of providing the best possible education for each student.
There are many ways to get involved, including working as a classroom helper, member of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), field trip chaperone, school council member, and many other opportunities. We encourage you to get involved.
The Fireside Elementary School Council is made up of certified staff, classified staff, parent members and community members. Our school council’s goal is to provide counsel to the school principal on all issues related to curriculum development and improvement, as well as consider and evaluate new initiatives or programs to help enhance our students’ academic experiences.

We support you, we give you access to your Superintendent, and we provide relevant programs of interest to you.
