The Parent Teacher Fellowship, otherwise known as the PTF, is a volunteer organization at our school where every parent, teacher and administrator is a member. The PTF exists to enhance the experience at Covenant Christian School.
The PTF Council consists of the PTF Officers, the PTF Class Representatives, a Faculty Representative, and the Head of School. The PTF has many opportunities to volunteer with a variety of events and committees. There is something for everyone to contribute time and talent.
The objectives of the PTF at Covenant as written in the PTF bylaws are:
- To present a constant witness of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
- To support the spiritual and educational growth of Covenant families in alignment with the CCS mission statement.
- To encourage and promote fellowship among parents, teachers and staff.
- To pray for God’s blessings on CCS.
If you have any questions or input for the PTF, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
