World Kindness Day is this Wednesday, November 13th, 2018. By wearing any BLUE shirt on this day you will be using your voice to stand in solidarity and say “Kindness Matters” in our town,  Fairfield, Connecticut.

When we each choose love, acceptance, and non-judgement toward ourselves and others, we experience true connection and bring our entire community closer together.

THANK YOU for turning Fairfield BLUE!

PTA Members and Presidents

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, supported by our national government across the country. Fairfield PTA Council is launching its first unified, viral media initiative to support Kindness Matters throughout this school year along with our Chamber of Commerce. In concert, we will be launching a series of messages to promote socially in our schools and neighborhoods.

On Monday, 10/15 thru the end of the month, the Kindness Committee is requesting all school PTA platforms: websites, Facebook pages, and Tweets to include any or all of 3 messages with a hyperlink to IM IN!

We are also asking all PTA Members, families and students to post the image as a personal profile on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn pages and any other social media platform you’d like to share this message.

Please be sure to CLICK  IM IN!  (  to show your support and be counted as a school or family who stands behind this important message.

We’re tracking, in real-time, all the individuals, organizations and companies that are standing for the eradication of bullying.  We are stronger together and through collaboration will raise awareness in Fairfield and beyond and have greater social impact. Please share this message and encourage friends and colleagues near and far to join in solidarity by clicking IM IN

If you don’t already have a Kindness Committee in place at your school, now is the time! I’m happy to come to your PTA meeting or meet with you, your Principal, and your HSFC Rep to
get started.

Here are some great ideas and resources to get going. It’s our mission to spread #KindnessMatters throughout Fairfield all year long.

Please join us!

Welcome, 2018-2019

Welcome, 2018-2019

Welcome, Fairfield to the 2018-2019 school year!


The Fairfield PTA Council is here to support the essential and ongoing activities of our town’s individual PTAs.  There are 17 PTA units in town each working to support its school and to advocate for its children.  That’s where PTAC come in.  We are the group who works to connect our schools’ voices within our school district.

This is a partial list of what PTAC does:

  • Fund Awards, Grants and Scholarships to schools, teachers, school groups, activities and events.
  • Sponsor and host enrichment programming.
  • Advocate for our children.
  • Facilitate the coordinated activities of school PTAs who wish to partner with other PTAs in town.
  • Participate in curriculum review for the school district.
  • Identify chronic, persistent and emerging needs of our schools’ communities and deliver programming to meet those needs.
  • Partner with local groups.
  • Regularly meet with the Superintendent of Schools
  • Educate and inform through candidate forums, news sharing and event hosting.
  • Deliver training, compliance and leadership resources.
  • Answer questions.

A town as large and diverse as ours offers opportunities for anyone wishing to get involved.  We are a mix of teachers, administrators and parents with children young and old, who work full time and stay at home, who offer a little bit or a lot of their time.  What matters is a willingness to participate to the best of your ability and availability. As they say, many hands make light work.

My goal as president of PTAC for the 2018-2019 school year is to strengthen our community by making it easier to communicate with each other.  I believe that communication is at the core of community.  Our means of communication are changing – particularly with our schools – simple Friday Folders have been replaced by Constant Contact/My School Anywhere/Facebook/Twitter/Email/Newsletters/etc. Important links left unopened shift the burden to PTAs to distribute information across multiple channels in the hope of catching parents’ busy eyes. Communication should become simple again.  To meet this goal PTAC is launching a new website and information platform designed to serve our complex town PTA structure and to represent our diverse voices unified through advocating for our children.  This will take time and I promise you that while we will not get it all right in Phase 1, we will work with you to get it there over time.  I’d like to thank the executive team of PTAC for working through the summer on this with a big shout out to Joy Ross who has spearheaded the project.

I’d like to invite you to join us at PTAC. We will succeed if we listen to the many voices advocating for our children across our great town.  For information, you can contact your school PTA’s president or email me directly at

Thank you for all that you do to make our town, its school district and its schools so special.

Best regards,


Carolyn Trabuco
