To fully support our diverse student body, to create a rich learning environment, and to maintain our focus on civil rights — the PFC needs your help! Please consider joining a PFC Committee.
Just one of the many ways to be active in our community is to join an HMCRA committee. They are all in need of volunteers throughout the year. Please see more details here about the goals of each of these committees and what help they are looking for. If you are interested in taking part, the email contact for each committee is listed in the link above. Please be in touch!
Our Committees are:
Annual Giving Campaign • Before/After Care • Community Events • Construction • Dine & Shop • Equity, Diversity & Inclusion • Garden • Newsletter • Room Parents • Swag • Tours & Welcoming • Yearbook

Here is a description of a handful of our committees:
Annual Giving Campaign Committee – The Annual Giving Campaign is the PFC’s major fundraising effort of the year. Help us engage with the school’s supporters through emails and flyers, write thank-you letters, and keep the community updated on our fundraising progress. The Annual Giving Campaign runs from September through December 2019. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction Committee – We are very excited about our new Library/Media Room, administrative offices and many other school-wide improvements. We recognize that we will all need time to adjust to working and learning at a school in transition. Please feel free to direct questions, comments and concerns to email@example.com
Events Committee – Fun community-building events are the heart and soul of the PFC! Assist with planning & executing events such as Movie Night, Family Potluck, and Halloween Parade & Dance Party. In the spring, we especially need volunteers for Spring Carnival and Drag Show. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Tours Committee – Our school’s reputation as a hidden gem is growing, and tours are more popular than ever. Help to organize and give tours on select Thursdays from 9:30-10:45am between October 2019 – January 2020. For more information, contact email@example.com.
Grant-Writing Committee – As funding from the state dwindles and our budget gap continues to grow, we continue to search for creative ways to close the gap. Help find and apply for outside grants that give our diverse and inclusive student body the programming and support that it deserves! To volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Diversity & Inclusion Committee – The Diversity and Inclusion committee’s mission is to promote diversity and community within our school. The committee work with room parents to promote school events to all families.
Making school events accessible and inclusive to the whole community and do new student outreach to neighborhoods outside of the Castro. For more information, contact email@example.com
