Through year long fundraising efforts at Farallone View, our Parent Teacher Organization (FVPTO) funds many enrichment classes for our students, that would otherwise not be provided. We fund science, physical education, art, and music. FVPTO provides an opportunity for our students to participate in the HEAL Garden Project. In addition to the enrichment experiences our students enjoy, we fund a portion of the school's office staff. The office staff is there to help teachers with their clerical needs so they spend more time preparing lessons and less time making copies. The FVPTO offers our teachers a stipend to help with the additional materials, lesson plans, and online education programs of their choosing. We assist with financing field trips, replacing broken playground equipment, and fund training opportunities for both teachers and staff. The money raised from Coastside Gives will go a long way in ensuring we can continue to offer the very best experience for our students.
