What is PTF?  Parents, Teachers, and Friends Society consists of an elected PTF board, parent volunteers, faculty, and pastors that meet bi-monthly/quarterly to promote interest in Christian education within our school, provide support and carry out policies of the Board of Education, Pastors, and Teachers. Members of PTF encourage all families to attend meetings, participate, and vote on selected topics that benefit and enrich our entire school community.

How does our school benefit from the fundraising done through PTF?

·         Athletics (uniforms, equipment, water bottle filling station)

·         Playground equipment

·         Student T-shirts

·         Back to school/new family welcome event
