The Parent Teacher Fellowship (P.T.F.) provides support to both parents and teachers. We use the term “fellowship” rather than association since we are a community of Christians working together for the good of our students. The P.T.F. provides greater opportunities for parents to become involved, for parents and teachers to communicate, and for the school to connect with the families it serves.

We look forward to all our families becoming involved in the P.T.F. activities.

Valley Presbyterian’s P.T.F does MUCH more than provide coffee for school functions (although that is important too!) Thanks to your support we’ve accomplished so much for our school (read on!)

What Does P.T.F. Do?

  • Provides athletic equipment
  • Coordinates yearly Jog-A-Thon, All School Breakfast, V.P.S. Olympics, Family Fun Night, Class Parties, etc.
  • Provided funds to update computers, a new LCD projector, and replaced classroom whiteboards with new magnet whiteboards. Added new privacy fencing to the kindergarten play yard. Purchased a new intercom system in the preschool.
