PFO provides for the general welfare of the Mesa's students and families with educational enhancement and school connectedness programs such as field trips, teacher room funds, special projects/programs, athletics funding, family nights, Carnival, hospitality, etc.
Please note that if there is no Board elected, programs will be suspended. An interim Board may be empaneled to provide administrative oversight of business functions until a new Board is installed.
Chairs and Coordinators are approved and appointed by the PFO President/Board. Click on the link to "PFO Board, Committee Chairs & Program Coordinators" for list of positions. It is the intent of the PFO Board to establish all chairs and coordinators in June of the prior school year. Thank you to those Chairs and Coordinators that will be continuing.
