At the beginning of each school year, various opportunities for parental involvement are introduced.  In order to provide the very best learning experience for our children, we depend on parent volunteers to help with the "extras".  Historically, our PTF (Parent-Teacher Fellowship) has contributed to our school by organizing fundraisers, school programs, fellowship events, and teacher appreciation activities.  It is a good way for our parents to get plugged in to their child's school, while getting to know the other Gray Road families. 

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalms 127:3-5
