PARENTS FELLOWSHIP

 

TP Schools will do everything they can to keep parents informed of their child's progress academically and socially. It is imperative that parents support the school with their regular attendance to events, fundraisers, and teacher-parent conferences. In order for your child to succeed you need to be involved in their school!!

 

TPS PARENT FELLOWSHIP ORGANIZATION

TP Parent's Fellowship Organization serves as an outlet for parents to support the school, help form policies, and serve as a voice for the concerns, needs, and suggestions of our Parents. A board that consists of the following will control this organization:

 

  • President

  • Vice President

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

  • Fundraising Chair

This board will meet and operate as deemed necessary. The Administrator/Principal prior to implementation must approve all activities, guidelines, etc.The PFO board and committees meet monthly the month prior to a PFO sponsored event on the School calendar. This allows parents to come together to plan and discuss upcoming events and issues that may need to be addressed.

 

If you are interested in getting involved or have more questions please contact the PFO President Deandra Wilkins at tpfo@tpschoolsindy.com

 

Membership to the PFO is automatic based upon enrollment of your student(s) here at TP Schools. We trust all parents to support the events and actively support the meetings. Announcements of the meetings will be posted and placed in the newsletter.
