Parent/Teacher FellowshiP

Columbia’s Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) encourages fellowship within our community by serving as a positive facilitator of prayer, relationships, events, and communication between family and school.

The goals of the PTF are:

  • Support excellence in the Christian education of children at Columbia
  • Stimulate parent participation in the school community
  • Enhance communication among parents, faculty, and administration
  • Encourage teachers by providing parent support in the classroom
  • Provide financial assistance for special projects as PTF funds allow
  • Volunteer time and talents for events and fundraising activities
  • Provide an avenue for parents to meet and fellowship with other parents in the community

We welcome and encourage parent involvement in all activities and fundraising events that the PTF supports during the school year:

  • Back to School BBQ

The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) will hold school-wide meetings on a monthly basis to discuss upcoming events and corresponding volunteer needs. These meetings will serve as an opportunity for parents to gather information, provide creative input, and plan for distribution among the school community. These meetings will also allow interested parents to join committees necessary for event planning purposes. Meetings can be held onsite, offsite, and/or via telecommunication (to be decided by each PTF), and the PTF is encouraged to use social media (i.e. FB Groups) for frequent communication.
