Class Parties
Every kid loves a party!  PTC members put on 3 school parties each year – fall, winter, and Valentine’s Day.  Crafts, games, and themed snacks make for a great celebration!

Summer Reading Challengeimg_2353
Don’t let your kids say, “I’m bored!” this summer!  Over the summer break, have your child log their reading minutes on the provided form.  In August, all students who meet the goal will receive prizes, with top readers earning special recognition!

Young Authors’ Reception
The purpose of the Young Author Program is to encourage students’ writing, reading, listening, and sharing skills by creating their very own books.  The PTC helps support this program by hosting a reception for all the young authors and their families in the spring.

Teacher Appreciation
We LOVE our Farmingdale teachers and we try to show them how much we appreciate their work during Teacher Appreciation week, and throughout the whole year!

Teacher Grant Program
Our grant committee reviews educational learning grant proposals from teachers and awards grants to help improve the educational experience in our school.

Art Outreach
The PTC assists the Springfield Art Association bring art awareness into classrooms.

Multicultural Week
This is always a fun and educational week for students in the spring!  PTC helps support teacher and administrative efforts to help students learn about cultures around the world.


The Fall Fundraiser is a great opportunity for students to get involved in sales for their school!  Each fall, the PTC will send home a fundraiser packet and order form.  This is a great time to stock up on holiday gifts!

The PTC A17342839_1745729588801037_5520547365091624417_nuction is held in the spring.  Come join your Farmingdale family and friends for a fun adult night out with music, food, and a live and silent auction.
