Lessons Learned from FOPBSS

Our new parent group was modeled by the success of the Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools.

  • Only one parent association for Mission Bay High and Pacific Beach Middle since 2004
  • Structure designed to address the decline in parent participation as children enter secondary school
  • Having one common association helps parents stay connected and form strong relationships with peers
  • Combining fundraisers raises more money
  • Schools can share resources (decorations for events, equipment, etc) - we save money

 “Unlike elementary school we are not on the sidewalks meeting other parents. Combining helped parents stick their toe in the water and now they don’t have to do it twice.”
