Video about FoFPE! Listen to our board president, Sunita Thaker, talk about the mission and 2019 goals of Friends of Forest Park Elementary. You can also catch some images of our first project of the year, the teacher lounge makeover, as well as learn more about the fall drive. 

Thank you to Sarah E. Shively and Marilys Ernst for creating this video for our school.

Fundraising

Your support is critical!

One of the things we do is donate financial support to the school. The money raised attempts to fill potential gaps between what public funding provides and the excellent education we all want for our children. In past years, the FPE Foundation has successfully raised money for our school through generous support of people like you.

Please consider volunteering for, donating to, supporting, or attending one of our fundraising events or activities!

How is the money raised spent?

Money raised goes to the school to help fund gaps between what public funding provides and what parents want for their children.

Historically funds have been spent augmenting staff, providing EAs, technology instruction, and other positions. (more specifics on this coming soon!) 

Financials​ are publicly viewable on the FOFPE website.
