The Parent-Teacher Organization of FPDS

Charged with the opportunity to support the ministry of the school, Crusader Club is the parent/teacher organization of FPDS.

The Crusader Club has officers and committees that function throughout the school year in a variety of activities.

Holiday Potpourri is an annual fundraiser led by the families of First Presbyterian Day School. Since 1974, funds raised surrounding this event have provided an added level of excellence at FPDS, including a state-of-the-art science lab, renovated art room, expanded library and increased Apple technology. All parents have opportunities to get as involved as they desire by serving on committees and volunteering before or on the day of Holiday Potpourri.

Field Day is another important event sponsored by the Crusader Club. Generally held the third Friday in May, Field Day requires many parents to organize and volunteer for this fun tradition in the life of our school. All parents are encouraged to take this day off from work to spend it with their children.

The Crusader Club also sponsors all school parties during the year.

The officers and committee chairpersons meet once a month with the school administration to discuss their plans. If you would like more information on how to become more involved inthe school, please contact any of the officers of the Crusader Club.
