The short answer…EVERYONE! Parents, students, teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, pets (yep even your pets can be members).
1. We organize fundraisers to generate financial support for school programs, projects, and activities. These funds are often used to purchase educational resources, technology, and equipment, as well as to support extracurricular activities.
2. We show appreciation for teachers and school staff through recognition events, appreciation weeks, and by providing resources to support their professional development.
3. We organize events for students to give them a break from the books and reward them for their hard work.
We often ask for volunteers to help with events. In order to volunteer you will need to fill out the background check form on the FCPS website at https://webapps.fcps.net/volunteer/. The background check will take two or more weeks to complete, so please submit the form as soon as possible to make sure your approval has been received before the event you want to volunteer for.
