PFC stands for Parent Faculty Council, an organization often known as PTA at other schools. The Parent Faculty Council supports the Orchard Lane community by planning and organizing events and fundraisers. These events provide educational, fun, and memorable activities to every Orchard Lane student, both in and out of the classroom.

How does the PFC raise money for activities?

How does the PFC make all this happen?

We could not provide these programs and events without the support of you and all the rest of our parent volunteers. Thank you all for contributing to our success.

How can I get involved?

You can volunteer to help a committee, become a committee chairperson, participate in fun events each year, or make a donation. Email if you would like to volunteer for something specific or are willing to help out wherever we need you most. We love welcoming newcomers.  

How does the PFC communicate with parents?

You will find much PFC-related information right here on our website. We will also send out reminders in the weekly school email newsletters -- so be sure you're reading those regularly. We recommend downloading the Konstella app for additional reminders, planning, and messaging. And those of you on social media can follow us on Facebook on the Orchard Lane PFC Parent Group.
