The core mission of the Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) here at First Baptist Christian School is to partner with teachers, administration, and parents through effective communication, social events, and intentional fundraising efforts to foster a loving and enriching environment for each family.
Benefits of Membership
The cost of a PTF membership is $20. Research shows that parent involvement makes a quantified impact on student achievement at various levels such as grades, social skills, attendance, mental health, enjoyment at school, and more. You can read more about this research at ptotoday.com.
