Pumpkin Festival 2019

The first PFO school-wide event is organized to bring the entire community together. It's a great way to meet parents, students and faculty in a fun, relaxing environment. It is also a way for the PFO to raise funds to support various school & student activities throughout the year. Check out how the PFO gives back here

We still need many more volunteers! Please consider volunteering for an hour to run a game or activity. Sign up here.
