PFA stands for Parent Faculty Association (just like a PTA)!
Our goal is to raise money to enhance our children's education, and increase communication between parents and faculty. Our association is a team where everyone is a winner!

Fundraising: We strive to provide a well rounded education, and specialists cost money. Our district can not pay for all the programs and enrichment your child receives from the PFA. Out of $180,000 raised, 80% goes directly to salaries and supplies for our specialists and aides. Assuming a student population of 450, the cost per child is $411. Please continue to give generously to maintain these programs. Our fundraisers this year are:
Please support our fundraising efforts! Every dollar spent goes back into our classrooms!
- Bobcat Boosters Donation Drive - $300 suggested investment per child.
- Book Fairs
- Earning for Learning, E-Scrip, Schoolpop.com
- Gift Wrap
- Community events such as the Great Race and Reyes Adobe Days.
- Spring Event & Silent Auction
We support our teachers through teacher reimbursements, PART program, and Teacher Appreciation.
