The Parent Teacher Fellowship is committed to supporting the ministry of Plymouth Christian Academy. The goals are to encourage every parent to get involved, to support the faculty in both personal and professional ways, and to build community and school spirit.
In order to accomplish this mission we:
- Creatively seek to promote opportunities for parents to serve and encourage teachers, staff, and students
- Promote fellowship among our school family and staff
- Raise money to provide a source of funding for special non-budgeted items as identified by staff and administration and voted on by the PTF
The ultimate goal of all that the PTF does is to glorify the Lord and we believe that, “If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength that God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.” I Peter 4:11
PTF meetings will take place the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8am in room 302, CBC. The following are the meeting dates:
PTF Officers 2017-2018:
- President-Andrea Shook
- Vice President-Gwen Brugger
- Treasurer-Jaime Palmby

Teacher Wish List
One of the goals of the PTF is to support PCA teachers and their professional classroom needs. We desire to provide funds for items needed in the classroom, but that are above and beyond classroom budgets. Although we certainly cannot meet every need and request, we will do our best to meet teachers’ desired needs in a timely fashion.
Teachers submit their requests to the PTF, and the request is discussed at a PTF meeting. The requests are also listed below to make the requests known to our school family. We attempt to have all requests filled within 45 days as voted on by the PTF, within the PTF budget, or a family donation.
Current Teacher Wish List & School Improvement Items:
All-School Need: Laminator
If you wish to donate to the Teacher Wish List Items, please contact the PTF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Parent Teacher Fellowship desires to build a community at PCA and promote school spirit. They also desire for all parents to be involved to support PCA in both personal and professional ways. In order to fulfill these goals, the PTF raises money to provide a source of funding for special non-budgeted items as identified by staff and administration and voted on by the PTF.
