Welcome to the NGFS Parent and Community Association (PCA)
Hello and welcome to New Garden Friends School. The Parent & Community Association (PCA) our parent volunteer arm is much like most PTAs. All NGFS parents and guardians are invited to be a part of the PCA. The PCA is here to support the teachers and administration through volunteer support, special events and family opportuntiies. .
We encourage you to get involved. There is no better way to get connected, get to know your teachers, and meet other parents, and we will have lots of opportunities for you. Some of the things you have to look forward to include our Fall Unity Festival, the Friends Run 5K, Staff Appreciation events, GrandFriends Day, drama productions, sports events, fall and spring trips — the list goes on and on! Each year, we select one or more parents to serve as a room parent for your child's grade - these individuals serve as a pulse point for volunteer opportuntiies in the classroom and throughout the school. Contact Liz Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the members of the PCA leadership team if you would be interested in participating as a room parent or volunteering in other ways throughout the school year.
