School & Family Organization (SFO)

We believe that an institution is only as strong as its families, which is why we developed our version of the traditional "PTA" via the School and Family Organization, or "SFO." We depend on the hard work and dedication of our countless parent volunteers and committee chairs to execute the many events and programs throughout the academic year!

Thank you for your commitment to our school and our students!

Please email Paul Bamford if you would like to offer your time & talent on any of the committees listed below.
