PTC FAQs

To acquaint those new to The Foote School with the PTC, we offer the following answers to commonly asked questions:

What does PTC stand for?

PTC stands for the Parent Teacher Council of the Foote School Association, Inc.

How does one become a member of the PTC?

All parents or guardians of current students and all members of the administration and faculty belong to the PTC.

What does the PTC do?

The first goal of the PTC is to enrich the educational experience of Foote School students.  
To support these programs the PTC stages a variety of fundraisers throughout the year, including the Gift Wrap sale, the Book Fair, Class Photos and the Stop & Shop Gift Card Sale. 

The PTC also provides a forum for communication between parents, faculty and administrators. 
Central to accomplishing this goal is sponsoring evening Topic Sessions on current issues of concern.  Issues that have been addressed in the past include homework, standardized testing, morality and ethics, and varied curriculum goals.  
In addition, monthly PTC Committee meetings, which are open to all members of the PTC, provide a valuable opportunity for discussion between parents, faculty, and administrators. 

Another important goal of the PTC is community building. 
With its record-breaking attendance, the Fall Family Picnic is most successful at bringing Foote families together for food and fun on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Other community building events include the Book Fair, movie outings, All-School Social and culiminate in our annual spring fundraising auction.

If you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us or join us at a monthly meeting.
