2016-2017 PFO Positions Now Open

We are so grateful to the parents who have volunteered this year. The PFO counts on parents to help fundraise, plan programming, schedule assemblies, and provide the extras that aren’t funded by our district school board. The following is a list of the PFO positions and our hope is that you will join us in helping bring new opportunities to our kids next year. Please let us know if you are interested in any of the positions. You are also welcome to c0-chair any of them. It’s always much more fun if you work with a buddy. If you are interested in more than one, please let us know that as well. We are happy to answer any questions.

Restaurant Fundraiser


Our next restaurant fundraiser is going to be on Wednesday, October 30th. It’s the perfect time to go out for dinner since you’ll all be busy with last minute Halloween decorations and costumes. Please make sure you pick up a flyer at school or print a copy of it from the website. You will absolutely need it! There is no passing out of flyers at the restaurant, but feel free to forward this to all your friends and family.
