Paul Fly Parent Faculty Club

    About the PFC

    The Paul V. Fly PFC is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to support our children's educational needs. We are a group of parents, teachers and the school principal dedicated to improving and enhancing our students’ learning environment here at Paul V. Fly. We rely on the donation of time and resources from parents, teachers, staff, neighbors and our community partners to help us reach our goals.  Parents/guardians of Paul V. Fly students are automatically members of the PFC. No registration or payment of dues is required.  Families are encouraged to explore the opportunities we have to make a difference here at Paul V. Fly!


    PFC Mission

    The mission of the Paul V. Fly PFC is to inspire all students to love learning by providing compelling enrichment opportunities, enhancing the educational experience, and fostering a supportive community.  The PFC will work with the teachers and the principal of Paul V. Fly Elementary School to set priorities to supplement and support existing programs, and to raise and allocate funds to accomplish these goals.   


    What does the PFC support?

    Below are a few examples of how the PFC supports the students at Paul V. Fly:


       Field Trips


       Classroom magazine subscriptions

       Fourth Grade promotion ceremony

       RIF - Book distribution program

       And much, much, more…….


    How can I help?

    Here at Paul V. Fly, our parent volunteers are critical to ensuring that our children are provided with programs and resources that greatly enhance their daily learning environment.  There are many different ways to get involved - for both working and non-working parents.  There are opportunities to volunteer at the various events as well as to volunteer from home.  You can count box tops, create flyers, stuff envelopes, etc.  Any small quantity of time either at school or from home, is helpful.  Please reach out to us at paulvflypfc@gmail.com to learn more ways to help.
