Welcome! (updated May 15)
Our mission is to enhance and enrich the educational experience of our students. We accomplish this through the generous help and support of our parents, teachers, staff, and our community. All PFA activities and money raised directly benefit the students, teachers and staff. We enhance technology, physical education, science, the music program, library, and playground, and we fully fund and operate a parent volunteer art program.
Thank you for visiting our site and getting involved. Please join PFA!
