Events

Your PTA seeks to create a sense of community and encourage parental engagement from all families through activities, family fun events, and community outreach. We organize parent-hosted Panda Parties in the Fall and International Day in the Spring to help raise money for the PTA.

Fall Events
Panda Parties

Parents, teachers and staff signup to “host” an event, workshop, or party on a date & time of their choosing. College Park families go online to sign-up to attend the parties or events and pay the requested donation to the PTA.

Fall Book Fair

Volunteers help staff the Book Fair to raise money for the school library book fund.

Confucius Day

Students celebrate the birthday of this sage educator by bringing a flower for each of their teachers; volunteers assemble the flowers into bouquets.

Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

The PTA & FMS co-host this festival that will focus on community building through fun and educational activities such as lantern decorating, student performances, fundraising jukebox & karaoke, moon cake tasting and so much more!
