Parent Advisory Council

"Advocacy is a constitutional right and a proud American tradition. It's the most important opportunity, after voting, that Americans have to be involved in their government. PTA is one of the nation's oldest and most successful advocacy organizations. PTA has been an advocate for children since 1897 and has always been at the forefront in supporting laws that benefit children. One PTA purpose is to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth. North Carolina PTA members can fulfill this mission and help brighten the future of every child." (Taken from the NCPTA.com website.)

Advocacy can play a very big part in that because it gives a voice to our children who might otherwise not be heard. Anyone can be an advocate. You simply need to make your voice heard on the issues you feel strongly about. The advocacy committee researches the issues that are affecting our children in school and finds a way to speak out on children and parents' behalves. You are invited to attend monthly PAC meetings, and also to get involved in the wider reaching district, county, and state wide educational issues such as educational funding, elections, Board of Education meetings, County Commissioner meetings and Town Hall meetings.

Fall Festival

It is with pride and excitement that we will hold our annual Fall Festival in October.  Students enjoy an evening of fun with friends and family. The event features delicious food and treats, carnival games, and kids' activities both indoor and outdoor. For the grownups, we have the always popular 50/50 Raffle and Silent Auction. This event requires many volunteers, so please consider signing up to help. There are lots of short, one-time volunteer opportunities at this event.

Family Math Night

Food Lion is the host of this fantastic event held in the second half of each year. Students, family members, and teachers flock to our local store to participate in Family Math Night. Students are given grade appropriate worksheets with real life math applications. They go through the store, locating various items, performing price comparisons and calculations. Teachers are on hand to assist students; families have fun working together practicing math skills. In addition, there are door prizes, fun activities, refreshments, and goody bags.

Clothes Closet

We collect new and gently used clothing and shoes- of all sizes and seasons to distribute to families and students in need. Whether it be a student who needs a fresh change of clothes during the school day or a family who needs help, our goal is to provide assistance. We also collect hygiene items to pass out. You can make donations through the front office and utilize the clothes closet through your homeroom teacher.

5th Grade End of the Year Celebration

Our PTA helps fund a celebration on 5th grade promotion day for our rising 6th graders. Do you have a 5th grader this year?

Consider volunteering to send off the 5th graders from SFL with a fun day!
