Wapsie Valley Elementary School in Fairbank is fortunate to have a Parent-Teacher Organization that provides support for teachers and students, and offers an opportunity for parents and care givers to actively participate in the support of our elementary school building. Our PTO meets monthly to discuss upcoming events and ways to support students at the school. Anyone is welcome at these meetings and there is no membership charge. The Parent Teacher Organization's main goal is to enhance the learning environment for students and families at Fairbank Elementary; this objective is partially achieved by hosting several events throughout the year for our students. These events include a dance night, Christmas craft night, and the “bouncy house.” Each fall, Fairbank students participate in a fund-raiser. The PTO organizes this fund-raiser each year, and funds generated have been used to support the following: field trips for each grade level, 2 desktop computers in each classroom, a new playground structure, and new playground equipment.
