Family School Organization


DUE TO COVID-19, THE 21/22 SCHOOL YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT THAN THE TRADITIONAL SCHOOL YEAR. WE WILL TENTATIVELY BE HOLDING MANY OF OUR ANNUAL EVENTS.  HOWEVER, THINGS CAN CHANGE RAPIDLY. YOU CAN ALWAYS REACH OUT TO YOUR STUDENTS' TEACHERS BY EMAIL TO ASK ABOUT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES/DONATIONS SPECIFIC TO THEIR NEEDS AND CLASSROOM.

The Family School Organization  is a group of volunteer family and community members that help prepare for, support, and carry out many events at Excelsior Academy.  It is an excellent way to earn volunteer hours and get involved with the school! This year we need to be flexible with activities because of the ongoing pandemic. Our events will be held on a case-by-case basis, and an email asking for volunteer help will be sent out to parents for those events, in lieu of a committee. 

If you have specific questions, email Joy Hinton for elementary  (jhinton@eautah.org), or Leah Adair for middle school (ladair@eautah.org).

FSO Committee Expectations

  • Excelsior FSO committee members are enthusiastic role models for our families. They set the tone with their positive energy. 
  • Committee members are vital to the success of our events, and are expected to help with and/or attend 6 or more events throughout the school year.  Members are encouraged to attend committee meetings. Things don't happen without our committee!
