The Stark PFO (Parent/Faculty Organization) is a not-for-profit group of dedicated parents/guardians, teachers, administrators and staff whose purpose is to enhance the entire Stark community but most specifically the childrens' educational experiences. By having a child at Stark you are automatically a PFO member!
Our primary objective is to raise money through fundraising events in order to provide our schools with programs and resources that are not covered by the SPS budget. Some examples of activities sponsored by the PFO include:
- Field trips
- Teachers appreciation week
- Family nights
- Broadway Kids
- Students planners (grades 3rd to 5th)
- Scholastic Magazines for all grade levels
- Parents workshops (Navigating Stark)
- Cultural enrichment (Story Pirates, Harmony Nation)
- New portable PA system & Auditorium sound system
- Kindergarten Rugs
- Educational software for the Media Center
The PFO meets once a month - generally the second Wednesday of each month - in the school Media Center to plan for the upcoming activities, fundraisers and events. Please join us, kids are welcome and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Check the school calendar here for specific dates.
