Welcome to Forest Avenue Academic Magnet Elementary! The FAAM PTA is proud to serve the students, teachers, and administration of one of the best elementary schools in the state of Alabama. Parental involvement has always been at the heart of our school's success. On a typical day, parents can be found in the school helping with field trips, class projects, working in the library and copy room, or planning a special event, like our annual FAAM Bash, Multicultural Night, or Teacher Appreciation Week. There is a way for everyone to be involved!

FAAM is truly a special place to learn, and PTA works hard to provide the resources and support that our teachers and staff need. We are so proud of our diversity and ability to bring our #FAAMily together to help support this amazing program.  Please visit our "VOLUNTEER HERE" page today to find a way to be involved. If you have any questions, please reach out to us on our "CONTACT" page and check back often as we add more information to our site regularly.  

Welcome to our  #FAAMily,
