Foundation Christian Academy Parent Activities Committee

How can you best serve? Are you an organizer or are you great at assisting where you are needed? Do you like budget planning and fundraising? Put your talents to work! What are you passionate about? Everyone has a favorite FCA event! Is it Field Day, Calypso Fest, or the Book Fair? What do you enjoy? Reading to children in the library, making and playing games with our young children, or serving lunch with a smile? Parent involvement is essential to the success of FCA and allows us to provide our children with opportunities to grow outside the regular classroom. At Foundation Christian Academy, where parents and teachers work together to create a “village” for our children, we want every parent who desires to be active in the school to have that opportunity. Visit the PAC table at fall orientation to sign up for all committees in which you’d like to serve. Please keep in mind that if you sign up, we are counting on your support. Your name will be passed along to the chairperson of each committee. If you would like to chair a committee, put a * beside your name when you sign up to help.

Teacher Appreciation   
This committee plans the Teacher Appreciation Lunch in the spring and seeks other ways to let the teachers know how much they are appreciated.

Fall Festival 
This event needs lots of parent volunteers from grades preschool-4th grade and any other parents willing to assist.
In early November, we will host a child-friendly festival with fall games for grades preschool through 3rd grade. Our 4th graders like to assist. The chairperson of the event generally starts planning about 5 weeks prior to the event by hosting a meeting with the committee to tell about the event, to promote it, and to purchase prizes. The parents of each primary class organize a game for the event.

Book Fair
This awesome event requires LOTS of volunteers from all grade levels.
We host a fall and a spring book fair in our school library. This is a wonderful way to get to know parents, teachers, and other students in the school. The chair begins planning a month prior. Other committee volunteers generally make themselves available for at least one day to work the event.

Foundation Fathers Campout
FCA students and their dads campout in tents on the school campus. About 3 moms generally help with the cookout shopping and set up.

Labors of Love (L.O.L.)
This committee needs a team of 3-5 volunteers to assist with our service-a-thon.

Calypso Fest
This is FCA’s biggest family night. Each class, preschool through high school, prepares a food or game booth. We need at least one parent volunteer from each classroom to assist the teacher.

Field Day
This day takes place the last week of school and needs lots of volunteers to work with the PE teacher planning outdoor events.

Parents have the opportunity to read to the students. You may volunteer to help once a week or 1-2 days a month.

Panther Cafe
Parents are needed to assist the children once a week or once a month. Visit the Panther Cafe table for more information on this great opportunity to serve in the school.

*Each week the school newsletter email, PANTHER POST, will highlight upcoming events in which parent volunteers are needed. This is another way to get involved in the school and to meet other parents.
