P4A Mission

The mission of P4A is to enhance the overall student learning experience by empowering and supporting PFAA parents and school administration with assistance in planning, coordinating, and execution of school related activities.
  • Engage parents: encourage and increase family participation.
  • Participate in effective communication between parents and PFAA teachers and administration.
  • Support school programs and activities through continued fund-raising.
  • Promote the welfare of our students in home, school, and community.
  • Foster a strong sense of community between home and school, so that parents and teachers may cooperate effectively in the education of our students.
  • Develop united efforts between staff, families, and the general public that will secure, for all students, the highest advantages in physical, mental, and social education.
Every parent, guardian or adult representative of a student, in good standing, at PFAA is considered a member of PFAA.

Carpool Survey
To better facilitate your carpool needs P4A has created an online carpool survey. We will use this information to group families by zone or zip code (by using the survey you give us permission to share your name and e-mail address with other families in your area).

We encourage interested families to take advantage of this opportunity and fill out the survey as soon as possible. We want to help you find other PFAA families in your neighborhood!
